However, when it comes to doing the makeup on your wedding night, although you know best what suits you still it is always advisable to go for a professional makeup artist. A makeup artist is not only professionally trained in the job but has also mastered the tricks to make the makeup look good in reality as well as in photos. And therefore, it becomes imperative to hire a professionally trained and experienced makeup artist for your wedding day.
The selection process is very tacky however, as the number of makeup artists has increased by leaps and bounds and one can easily spot one at every nook and corner, claiming to be professionals and skilled in the task. In such a scenario, one can easily be misled and end up looking horrific or something completely different from what they actually are as not all the claims made by all the makeup artists are valid and trustworthy. Therefore, how should one proceed for selecting the right makeup artist for their D-day or rather how can one differentiate a skilled and able makeup artist from a fraud?
The following tips are meant to see you through this tacky task smoothly. Please take a look:
A bridal magazine can serve as a very good source for finding professional makeup artists. Flip through several bridal magazines well in advance of your wedding. Such magazines often carry snapshots of several models in bridal getup and these pictures always carry the names of the makeup artists as well. Browsing through the pictures regularly and following the makeup styles you like would help you form an idea about the styles and techniques of the makeup artists whose work appeals your aesthetic senses. Find the style that you think would suit you the best and fix an appointment with that makeup artist.
You may have attended some wedding in the near past wherein you would have particularly liked the makeup worn by the bride. Consult those people about the makeup artists they hired and go meet them.
You can also ask for references from the bridal shops where you have been a regular customer while shopping for your wedding trousseau. Often these shops work on mutually beneficial relationships with their favourite makeup artists and maybe of some help to you.
You can also consult your wedding photographer for references. Although it is not very common, yet big names in the showbiz world who are into making portfolios for models often work in collaboration with makeup artist and hence, may provide you references.
Another point to be kept in mind is no matter who gives you the references, never trust a makeup artist until and unless they provide you references (which an eminent and skilled makeup artist would be most happy to do). Sign the contract with any artist only after you find their work appealing. Have a wonderful wedding day!
