Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How to pick a bridal makeup artist?
This is one of the most important decisions you would have to take when you’re planning your wedding. While it can be nerve-wrecking, here are a few pointers to consider before you finalize an artist for your dream day.
Do Not Rely Solely on Social Media Profiles
Social media can be deceiving. Hence, it is important that you do not judge an artist by the number of followers they have.
Furthermore, most of the pictures are usually color graded and edited so you might not be able to judge how those pictures will look in real life. So, message them and ask them to send you un-edited pictures. Also, get an opinion of a customer too, if you can.
Meet the Artist in Person
Most brides skip this step and end up regretting it. It is extremely important that you go to the salon and meet up with the focal person. You need to discuss the budget, the kind of look you want, and most importantly, ask if you can have a trial session.
While this might not be free, it would help you judge the artists’ skills. Furthermore, you can also judge how hygienic the salon is through a trial. Hence, if you find a salon that offers one, make sure to avail it!
Q. What should I ask a makeup artist or a hairstylist?
Here are some of the things that you need to ask and discuss with your makeup artist or a hair stylist before the final showdown.
- Ask them about the makeup brands they use
- Discuss the schedule for the big day; when should you come to the salon and how long will it take to get ready?
- Talk about your skin condition (if you have any); discuss your skin type and allergies
- Finalize the logistics; are you going to come to the salon or are they coming to your place?
- Tell them exactly the type of makeup and hairstyling you are expecting
- Talk about the budget; the percentage of the total fee you need to pay in advance, discounts, and method of payment.
