How to Choose Your Wedding Day Makeup
You understand how important beauty and makeup is on your wedding day and you want to be confident you will look fabulous in person as well as in pictures so you need to find a high-quality makeup artist. With so many makeup artist websites out there how do you start sorting through the good ones from the bad ones? Below are the top steps in choosing the best makeup artist for your wedding day makeup.
For a start, you can ask friends, relatives or even your regular hairdresser if they can recommend some good bridal make-up artists and if possible, you should even have a look at their portfolios to see if their work interests you. If your wedding is being planned by a professional planner, you should ask him/her if they have make-up artist suggestions, because they should at least have one.
If you want your wedding photos to be admirable, it is also important that you get a makeup artist that you are comfortable with. The morning of your wedding day is definitely a very special day for you. As such, you should choose someone who makes you feel comfortable and secure. His/her presence should make you calm and relaxed and just enjoy your big day.
Decide if you wish to have your wedding day makeup done in your home/venue or if you want to go to a salon/mall on your wedding day. If you like the convenience of having someone come to you directly on your wedding day then seek out makeup artists that are freelance and mobile in your area.
Decide if you want both your wedding day makeup and hair arranged at the same location. If this is a requirement for you then conduct a web search for makeup artists and hair stylists in your area. Many bridal makeup artists also provide hair styling and can accommodate this type of request.
Ask around and get referrals. Ask your friends, family, coworkers and hairdresser if they can recommend a good makeup artist and if possible, look at the makeup artist’s portfolio to see if you like the artist’s work yourself! If you’re having your wedding planned by a wedding planner, ask if they have any makeup artist suggestions, because they should have at least one.
Review several makeup artist websites from your chosen area. Look at their portfolio of work and decide if their style of makeup is similar to your own. When looking over the images, check for things such as skin tone matching, attention to detail and if they include any current bridal makeup trend pictures in their portfolio of work. The portfolio is everything, and don’t try to ignore what you don’t like. Always set up a trial with the make up artists that peak your interest. Never wait until the day of the wedding to decide on your wedding day makeup.
