Here are my top five tips to help you choose a make-up artist for your wedding day:
How to choose your Make-up artist
Recommendations and Testimonials
1- Ask for recommendations, professional artists will have testimonial from previous bridal clients on their website. This will help you decide if they are the make-up artist for you and your wedding party. Asking family and friends which make-up artist they used for their wedding will give you a good starting point in finding the artist for you.
2- Look at pictures of the artists work. Do they fit the style you are looking for on your wedding day? For instance if you are looking for a vintage style make-up for your wedding day, then you should look for these images within the portfolio of the artist to make sure they can achieve the style you desire.
Will they Travel
3- Check if the artist travels to you on your wedding day. This is common and most will for a travel fee depending on the location of your wedding. This will take the stress away of needing to travel on the morning of your wedding enabling you to relax as much as possible in the lead up to the ceremony.
What’s in their kit?
4- Find out what items they use in their kit. If you love high end make-up you will disappointed when you see high street make-up make an appearance. Do they carry lighting? Essential for dull rooms and cloudy mornings.
Insured and Qualified
5- Check to see if they have insurance this means the artist is qualified and makes them a professional artist. A true professional will be able to send you a copy on request.
