and expertise to transform you from the girl next door into a radiant and stunning bride that will take your man's breath away.
Many brides, especially those on a budget, make the mistake of hiring an amateur makeup artist or use the services of a friend for their bridal beauty needs, but to achieve the stunning results you desire it goes without question that you should stretch your budget and hire an experienced and talented makeup artist do the job. Only a professionally trained makeup artist will have the experience and expertise to beautify you, sculpting and transforming facial features, concealing flaws, giving you styling, dieting and well-being advice (beauty does start from within!) and using her charm and charisma to calm your nerves on your big day.
Finding The Make Up Artist That Is Perfect For You
With such an important role to play in making your wedding dreams a reality, it's essential to execute your research thoroughly to find a good bridal make-up artist and book her as soon as possible, before another bride nabs her!
We recommend you begin your search at least nine to twelve months in advance of your wedding date. Skilful make-up artists are always in demand, particularly during the wedding season and a good make-up artist may even be booked up more than a year in advance.
A good place to start would be to review the listings in google (or call me - Khush Singh ;) collate details from bridal magazines, wedding exhibitions and ask for recommendations from friends. If you have employed a wedding coordinator for your wedding then you can also source information from them.
Most make up artists will have comprehensive websites where you can view their work and find out more about the services they have to offer and what their clients have to say about them. Makeup artists can initially be assessed on the following criteria:
close relatives or friends are to get their make-up done. They may also offer discounts for applying makeup for multiple events.
Clarify if accessories like false eyelashes, nails, bindis or shimmers are included in the package cost and if not, how much extra these are likely to be. You should also clarify transport costs to your wedding venue, if known. Moreover ask about the brand of cosmetics going to be used on your face. Make sure to have the best brand cosmetics applied.
Confirm that the makeup artist offers hair styling services along with make-up or if she has a partner who does the same. You need to ensure you have a fully coordinated look and that your makeup and hair work together and not against each other.Enquire how long the make-up will last? Ensure that the beautician gives you a long-lasting and waterproof makeup for the long drawn ceremonies and all the sobbing at the bidai ceremony.
Enquire how many brides she will be dealing with on your wedding date. A work of art takes time to accomplish and you should not have your wedding day compromised by a makeup artist who is delayed from a previous appointment or has to rush off to another wedding. Lastly, don't forget to ask what their charges are for a makeup trial and if these can be claimed back when a booking is confirmed.
