"Find Your Dream Wedding Makeup Artist: The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right One"

Dear Bride to be,

Congratulations on your engagement! 

Are you searching for the perfect makeup artist for your dream wedding? Look no further!

Choosing the right makeup artist for your big day is crucial, as your wedding makeup will be one of the most important aspects of your wedding day. Your wedding makeup is not something to take lightly, as it’s one of the most photographed days of your life. With so many makeup artists out there, it can be overwhelming to know where to start.

Here are five tips to help you find the perfect makeup artist for your wedding day:

1. Look for experience

When it comes to wedding makeup, experience matters. Look for a makeup artist who specialises in bridal makeup, and who has a portfolio of real brides they have worked with. Check out their website, Instagram page, and other social media platforms to get a feel for their style and the quality of their work.

2. Consider their personality

Your makeup artist will be spending a significant amount of time with you on your wedding day, so it’s important that you feel comfortable with them. Look for a makeup artist who is friendly, professional, and makes you feel at ease. A cheerful and positive attitude can make all the difference on your wedding day!

3. Ask for recommendations

Reach out to other brides you know who have recently gotten married and ask for recommendations. You can also ask your wedding planner or photographer for recommendations, as they often work with makeup artists and can provide valuable insights.

4. Do your options fit your budget?

When comparing pricing, be sure to consider the quality of the makeup artist’s work, their level of experience, and the reviews from previous clients. It’s important to remember that your wedding makeup is an investment in your special day. You want to make sure you are comfortable with the cost and confident in the results.

Beware of unprofessional and inexperienced makeup artists who offer cheap rates, as they may be unreliable. Opt for a reputable and experienced makeup artist to ensure you have a stress free experience on one of the most important days of your life.

Ultimately, choosing the right makeup artist for your wedding day is about finding someone who not only fits your budget but also makes you feel comfortable, calm, confident, and beautiful throughout your journey with them and on your special day.

5. What style of makeup do you want?

Another important consideration when choosing a wedding makeup artist is the style of makeup you want for your big day. Do you prefer a natural, minimalistic look, or do you want a more glamorous, bold makeup style?

Take some time to research different makeup styles and looks that you like, and then look for a makeup artist whose style matches your preferences. Look through their portfolio and social media pages to see if they have experience creating the look you want.

By considering your desired makeup style and finding a makeup artist who specialises in that style, you can ensure that you’ll look and feel your best on your special day.

6. Narrow it down

Do you love the work on their social platforms, are you comfortable with their style of makeup?  Narrow your choices down to 2-3 artists whose work you LOVE.

Consider their social media presence, and whether you’re comfortable with their makeup style and read their reviews.

7. Consider their availability

Finally, make sure that the makeup artist you choose is available on your wedding day. Most makeup artists book up quickly (meaning 8-12 months in advance, post covid it’s moved up to 18 months in advance), especially during peak wedding season, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

Remember, your wedding day is all about celebrating love and joy, and your makeup artist should be there to enhance your natural beauty and make you feel your best. 

By following these tips, you’ll be well on your way to finding the perfect makeup artist for your dream wedding.
