Planning a wedding can be both a blissful and stressful event, surrounding yourself with pro’s can help reduce that stress so today we’ll be talking about how to work with a professional makeup artist for your wedding (or any grand occasion). Just like choosing the right photographer, florist or caterer choosing the right artist for you can require some research like reading plenty of reviews and interviewing to make the right connection that fits both your needs and your personality. Here are some questions to help get you started on the right path.
What details about my wedding should I share with a Makeup Artist?
EVERYTHING! The more information the better, is it an indoor or outdoor event? Is it an ultra glam venue or a simple backyard celebration? Is it an afternoon or evening affair? All of things matter when planning your look so the more information you share the better.
Can I tell a Makeup Artist what I like or do I have to just let them have creative liberty?
Yes! Please do tell us what you like but more importantly tell us what you DO NOT like. Sharing both your likes and dislikes opens the conversation when it comes to choosing the right colors and products for you and your desired look. It’s especially important to let us know if you have any allergies or special needs that will need to be addressed, such as rosacea or any other skin conditions, this helps us plan in advance to ensure the artist has the right items in their kit for your appointment.
Do pictures help?
Absolutely! We LOVE selfies that show the genuine you! We’d much prefer to see photos of you that you like, that make you feel radiant and confident as opposed to photo-shopped models from Pinterest.
How can I get the most out of my makeup trial?
This is a fantastic question! Book your trial for as early in the day as your schedule permits, this gives you the opportunity to truly experience our 15 hour guarantee! Schedule other photo capturing activities such as an engagement or boudoir photo shoot, your bridal shower or lunch with the girls for the same day, this gives you a chance to see how you’re makeup will look from a variety of cameras and in different lighting situations. (don’t forget to take plenty of selfies!)
When should I start looking for my makeup artist?
You should book your Makeup Artist as soon as you establish your ceremony time and your first look with your photographer. This allows us to create your timeline before your activities begin.
Here’s three of our most recent reviews from brides on The Knot.
Meg and her team were amazing from day one. Answering all of my questions and offering lots of tips and information. My makeup looked flawless into the wee hours of the morning and my hair survived 20-30 mph winds without needing any touch up. Absolutely amazing!
My experience with Makeup in the 702 was AMAZING! Estefi and Katie did hair & makeup for myself and my bridesmaids on the day of my wedding. They arrived very much on time, prepared, and stayed on schedule perfectly. They truly made us all feel so beautiful and confident, and did an AWESOME job of listening to what we each wanted to do or anything we wanted to change no matter how small, and gave you the exact look you wanted. I have curly hair, and I was nervous working with it natural even though that’s what I really wanted. Katie did an absolutely fantastic job, she made me so glad that I chose to work with the curls instead of fighting them. Both Estefi and Katie were super kind, encouraging, and did a fantastic job. My girls and I were getting compliments all night about the hair &makeup. Thank you Estefi and Katie, we appreciate you!! ?
Megan and her staff have been BEYOND amazing through the whole process from booking to the finishing touches of making sure every detail was just what I wanted to feel confident on my wedding day. My now husband said I took his breath away. He likes a lighter hand with makeup and I like a more dramatic look and MUinthe702 struck the perfect balance. Thank you thank you thank you!
