How to Find the Best Makeup Artist for Your Wedding
While trying to find the perfect venue, photographer, entertainment, and, of course, wedding dress, you’re constantly researching, relying on recommendations, and stalking the social media accounts of potential vendors. Selecting the right makeup artist should be no different. Once you know what you’re in the market for, you can start finding someone with the skills to achieve it. A good starting point is our vendor tool. It lists wedding makeup artists across the country along with their portfolio pictures, contact info and reviews.
You can start to searching on social media. Many wedding makeup artists post their portfolios on Instagram, making it easy to get a feel for their work. Try searching hashtags like #makeupinrome and #makeupartistinitaly to find what you’re looking for. Remember to shoot them a follow if you like what you see.
“Many of my clients are referred to me by past and current clients over the years. It’s always great to find a makeup artist that comes with a great recommendation from someone you know.” Check out your friends’ Instagram pages to view their results, browse reviews online, and familiarize yourself with the artist’s portfolio prior to calling to book a consultation or trial.
Before you book a trial and fall in love with an artist, it’s important to ensure their availability for your wedding date, as well as their ability to accommodate the number of bridesmaids and family members who will also need professional makeup.
Know Your Look
Your wedding makeup should enhance your natural beauty, and you should go with a similar look to what you usually wear. But it’s important to remember that for the majority of brides, you’re going to want a bit “more” for your wedding day. “Your wedding makeup is always going to look like more than what you usually wear,” “The camera doesn’t pick up pigment like the naked eye. This goes with brows and lashes too, so don’t be wary of your artist filling in your brows or wearing false eyelashes.” And just remember to be fabulous on your wedding day
