Every bride’s dream is to look her best and confident self on her big day.
The question is, how do you find the ideal makeup artist? Here are some tips, coupled with our curated artists to make it easier for you to make the right choice.
Decide the makeup style you want to go for: It all depends on your wedding theme and your personality. Don’t know what kind of makeup you want on the day? The BEST way to do this go through the wedding magazines, articles; offline and online, and social media to get ideas.
Make a Scrapbook: Now that you have decided upon the vision of your wedding makeup, it’s time for you start curating pictures you like in your scrapbook. This will help you to organize your thoughts and help decide what’s best for you.
Choosing the makeup artist: Now we all know that with just one click we can get hundreds of makeup artists online. Don’t be overwhelmed with the number. Trust your intuition and your style. Look at their portfolios and the style. Pay attention to the little details like the finishing of the makeup, new trends of makeup and also the brands they use. Does it reflect your style and image? If yes, make a list of ones you like and are recommended by your friends/relatives.
Scheduling a trial run: Once, you’re done with making a list, the next step is a trial makeup consultation, which is important to not only experience the artist’s expertise in person but also to get a feel of whether the artist personality clicks with yours. It is also recommended to try on your bridal gowns during the makeup trials to visualize the final look for yourself.
Booking a makeup session: If you’re happy and satisfied with makeup trial, then book the makeup artist as soon as possible. The more popular makeup artists can sometimes be booked a year in advance. So definitely book a makeup artist and get it out of the way, especially if your wedding is during the “hot” or “auspicious” dates.
