Essential Tips in Choosing Your Bridal Makeup Artist

Posted by Tina Prajapat on June 22nd, 2023

Finding the right makeup artist for your wedding day can be daunting. It is important to find your bridal makeup artist well in advance, as with any other supplier, you want to get the best choice and as a result, you need to get in there early. If you are getting married in peak season or on a summer Saturday and you want the best bridal makeup artist, the sooner you find them and book them the better.

When going through the bridal makeup artists offering their services in your local area, you want to have some understanding of what look you want. This could be a natural look, super glamorous look or an Asian bridal look. Knowing what you want in advance is essential to finding the best bridal makeup artist for the job. Many makeup artists have their own distinct style that comes across in their work.

If you have family or friends that recently tied the knot and you love the bride’s makeup, then ask for some recommendations. Take a look at your friends and family wedding photos on social media, so you can see which bridal makeup you prefer. The good thing in asking family and friends is that they want your wedding to be as special as you do, so they will only recommend someone they have had a positive experience with. If they found their bridal makeup artist difficult to deal with, not being punctual or not providing them with the look they requested, they will be quick to steer you away from them.

Many brides use friends or relatives to do their bridal makeup, but you should focus on using a professional. While you can save money by doing your own makeup, using a professional can provide you with the look you want on your special day. You can always book a trial, so you can see that you get the results you are hoping for, before signing on the bridal makeup artist for your wedding day.

Make use of the internet when looking for the best bridal makeup artist for your wedding day. Google and social media are great places to start. Always search for a professional in your local area. It's not a good idea to have someone that has to travel more than one hundred miles to provide you with your makeup. This will likely increase your overall cost, as you will have to pay their travel.

Most professional makeup artists have their own social media pages with lots of photographs of their past and present work. Doing a search “near me” will ensure you find someone within your local area. Not all bridal makeup artists have their own private website, but the majority will advertise and push their services on social media pages. Many use Facebook as their main website, making it easier to find them and go through the images that they provide.

When you have chosen your venue or photographer, you can ask them for recommendations on who they recommend for your bridal makeup. Some venues have their preferred suppliers that they have worked with for years, as do photographers.

Never choose a bridal makeup artist without first checking out their previous work. While many put photos on their website and social media pages, you want to look beyond model photographs. You want to see pictures of real brides. You can ask the bridal makeup artist for references on some of the previous brides they have worked with recently. There is no harm in picking up the phone and calling a bride to find out about her experience.
