Tips on Finding “The One” (HMUA Hunting Tips)Thursday, November 19, 2015 Bridestory, HMUA Tips, ReigningStill Beauty, Wedding Preps,
6. Don’t be shy to ask about their make-up tools. It is important that your make-up artist is using top-notch make-up tools and cosmetics. I mean a wedding lasts an entire day. Them make-up should stay put, right? And you don’t expect cheap make-up to last that long. Plus you could justify their rates according to the brand of make-up products they use. If the rates’ too high but they are only using drugstore cosmetics then you are not getting value for your money. You could also ask if they have a make-up chair, if they have lights on their make-up table, how often they clean their brushes. Everything you want to know, ask away!
7. They should be hands on. If you book a make-up artist, clarify with them if they’ll be the one who’ll do your make-up or if they might send somebody else. If you are okay with them sending somebody else, I suggest you do a trial make-up session with that back up make artist too. I really appreciate a make-up artist whose very hands on. The make-up artist we booked for my best friend joined us on location during the prenup photoshoot. She would adjust the hair, do a minor retouch, everything. And I appreciate that. Some make-up artist would do your hair and make-up and stay on the room while you shoot. Although it’s kinda okay. But honestly, the extra effort really matters.
8. They should be able to highlight your best asset and improve your not-so-good features. A good make-up artist would really make sure that they highlight your best features and improve the not-so-good ones. You should be a prettier version of yourself.
Good luck on your wedding preps!! Let me know if you have more tips to share, comment away.
