5 Things to Look For When Choosing a Makeup Artist

 In Latest News

When looking forward to a special occasion that requires the help of a professional makeup artist, with so many to choose from, it’s hard to decide which one is the best fit for you. There are quite a few factors to take into consideration before making your choice.

So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at what you should be looking for from your makeup artist.

1. Flexible Scheduling

While it’s reasonable for any makeup artist worth their salt to be busy, it shouldn’t be impossible to book an appointment with them. You should never be made to feel that you are “getting in the way” of their existing clientele.

Ideally, you want to look for a makeup artist that offers home and venue visits so that they can fit in with your schedule, not the other way around.

2. Qualifications, Expertise, and Awards

Ideally, your makeup artist should be able to demonstrate their qualifications or expertise. It’s no good for them to have the best equipment and makeup on the market if they don’t know how to put them to use effectively.

Often you can find this information online on a reputable makeup artist’s website (as is the case for Huze Makeovers). Look for qualifications and any awards they have won. You should also look out for detailed information about the makeup artist’s portfolio, as it can give you a good indication as to whether they’re suitable for your event.

3. References and Testimonials

On a related note, you should be able to obtain some references and/or testimonials regarding the quality of their service. Existing clients are often the best source since they can literally provide the proof in the pudding. You should also check out a makeup artist’s online gallery to better understand their signature look.

However, you should also be able to find at least a few reviews on reputable makeup artist review websites, social media, or general review sources such as Google Reviews.

4. Check to Make Sure They Are a Good Personality Fit

Next, for really special occasions such as weddings, check that you and your makeup artist are a good personality fit. You will likely be spending a considerable amount of time together, so it’s essential to make sure you are comfortable with the makeup artist.

Being sufficiently relaxed with your wedding makeup artist is vital to giving them enough freedom to do their job effectively. It also ensures that you don’t have any undue stress or hassle leading up to the momentous moment of walking down the aisle.

All it takes is a simple phone call to introduce yourself, and you should be able to tell within seconds whether you are likely to get along with the makeup artist in question.

5. Clear and Transparent Pricing

There’s nothing worse than being stung with hidden costs, especially after a celebration such as a wedding or a milestone birthday party. That’s why you should look for a makeup artist that provides clear and transparent pricing so that you know exactly how much it’s going to cost you.

They should also be able to provide a breakdown of the costs, taking into account any additional services such as airbrushing, tinting, and lashes.
