4 Important Things to Look for in a Makeup Artist

4 Important Things to Look for in a Makeup Artist

It’s no life or death matter, but selecting a makeup artist to doll you up for your wedding day is, understandably, a rather high-stakes mission. How do you ensure that you look your best from dawn to dusk, in-person and on camera, under both natural lighting and the harsh spotlights of the ballroom? The answer is simple — by engaging the right makeup artist for you. 

To help you sieve through the many that you’ve shortlisted, here are some things to keep an eye out for in a makeup artist: 

1. A compatible personality 

You don’t have to be best of friends with your makeup artist, but having a makeup artist who understands and vibes well with you will help to make the entire experience more pleasant and smooth-sailing. Not only will you feel more relaxed when they are doing your makeup, but you will also feel more encouraged to talk openly about your concerns and requests. 

2. Reliable skills

This may sound like a no-brainer, but the importance of engaging a skilled and professional makeup artist is truly not to be underestimated. Apart from making sure that your face looks flawlessly gorgeous the entire day, a skilled makeup artist ensures that your makeup style matches the rest of you and your wedding decor for a coherent, well-put-together celebration.

A skilled makeup artist would also know which colours, textures, and techniques to use for your skin type and skin tone to achieve the style that you envision, instead of simply applying a cookie-cutter makeup “template” onto your face. 

Take a thorough look at their portfolios, read the reviews left by their customers, and schedule trial sessions to get a feel of their expertise firsthand before you commit to any makeup artist!

3. The ability to help you shine

Your wedding is all about you, so likewise, your hair and makeup look should also reflect who you are as an individual. Engage a makeup artist who will not only enhance your features but also bring out your personality with a stunning look that sets you apart from the crowd! It doesn’t have to be over-the-top; even a subtle look can be a breath of fresh air with small, unconventional details. 

4. Fuss-free packages 

Being a bride-to-be is exhilarating, but also tiring — there is plenty to plan and coordinate, and the last thing you need is a complicated wedding package filled with fine prints and hidden charges. 

To ensure a smooth-sailing and fuss-free process, look for a makeup artist who has a clean, simple, and straightforward bridal package with all the provided services clearly listed. This will help you to be aware of what you are paying for, and reduce the possibility of miscommunication and mismatched expectations in the future. For example, are the rates listed at nett price or will there be additional service charges? Are the rates based on the number of looks required or hours put in?

In fact, in order to help brides-to-be come to an informed decision when selecting a look and makeup artist, they make sure to carefully elaborate on each Maestro Artists’ makeup style — be it creative and bold, contemporary Korean-inspired, or glowing skin with an emphasis on the eyes. They also provide a guide on how you can best determine your bridal style, and they offer makeup trials for brides-to-be who may be unsure of their decision to settle on a certain look or makeup artist. 

Remember what we said earlier about looking for a makeup artist who is compatible with you? Trial sessions are also great for checking your chemistry and building rapport, which the team at Makeup Maestro • Wedding also strongly believes in.
