How to choose the perfect make-up artist for your Wedding

Apr 24, 2023 | Articles

Your wedding day requires a lot of thought and research. While trying to find the perfect venue, photographer, wedding dress and more, you ask for recommendations and search the social media accounts of all these professionals. The process of choosing the right make-up artist, should be no different.

To begin with, a simple internet search can help you narrow down your choices. Your photographer too, having captured many weddings, can surely recommend some professionals he has worked with in the past, with great success.

Before even the trial, an in-person meeting is non-negotiable. Taking the time at the appointment to discuss all the details, will help the artist understand your aesthetic, know exactly how you envisioned your makeup and any specifics you may have (i.e., skin allergies, contact lens use, etc.). They can also advise you on everything from hair color and eyebrow shape to giving you various skincare hacks. Every little detail enhances the look on the final day.

At the trial it’s always helpful to wear something white and bring along photos of make-up looks you like. Do the trial early in the morning, in the light, keep it all day and shoot not only the before and after, but also try to take a photo in many different places with different lightings. A nice tip is to also schedule a pre-wedding photoshoot with your wedding photographer on the same day, a shoot that will familiarize you with the lens, provide you with great photos and be the perfect opportunity to see in practice how the make-up is captured and if it needs any modification or correction. It may seem strange but even I, as a photographer, can help you perfect your make-up by studying the photos together, so that the result will be exactly what you have dreamed of.

There is a lot of pressure on brides to look good on her wedding day and minimal is always the way to go. Remember, we never do fashion at the wedding. Naturally beautiful is what you should aim for without straying from your personal style. As a bride, you should look like the best version of yourself, not lost under layers of makeup.
