8 Steps to Finding Your Wedding Makeup Artist

Large

When it comes to wedding planning, every bride certainly only looks for the best, especially when talking makeup. Even though professional makeup artists can be costly, the bride is usually willing to pay any amount of money to have her envisioned look executed in real life.

Choosing a makeup artist can be difficult when there are so many options. In 8 steps, we will try to help you find the makeup artist that matches your style and taste. 

1- Choose your style:

Before choosing the person, you need to choose your makeup style first. Would you like it to be basic, nude, Smokey or heavy? What colors do you prefer? This process will be usually online, through the makeup style and looks search.

2- Makeup photos:

Save every picture you like in order for the makeup artist to figure out what you need and love easily and effectively.

3- Picking the artist:

You have to have a list of names of MUAs before settling on one, which means that you’re gonna have to ask your friends and trusted ones for recommendations. Then comes the online part where you thoroughly go through the different social media pages and photos.

4- Picking the one:

After your long journey of searching for the perfect MUA, you’ll be left with so many names to choose from and things will most likely get very confusing for you. Here’s what every bride should do: Save every name, along with the artist’s contact info. Then, start eliminating MUAs, one by one, after contacting each one by phone. 

5- Figuring out the cost:

Call all of the artists on your list and find out if their prices and packages fit your budget plan. Here’s a fast tip: The closer you get to the date of the wedding, the higher the cost will be. Act fast.

6- Meeting with the MUA:

After selecting your artist, you have to schedule the first meeting. This is something you do to ensure that they fully get and understand what you want, including the necessity of being certain of the artist’s own capabilities. 

7- Makeup trial:

DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. You need to have a first round with your MUA in order to check out the products they use, their hygiene standards, and their talent for creating the perfect bridal makeup look for you. This is a step that should be carried out early on, around 2 to 3 months before the wedding so that you have time to change your mind if it’s required.

8- Final agreement:

If all goes well with the trial and you feel like your makeup artist is someone you can trust with your face on the big day, then seal the deal and pay up. Always start with a down payment.
