To find a reputable professional makeup artist, try the Wedding Suppliers Directory, many makeup artists have their own Wedding Makeup Website and others advertise at Wedding Shows or in Bridal Magazines.

Tips to remember when booking your Make-Up Artist:

1.) Location:

Do they come to you or are they salon based. It is much more relaxing to have them come to you on the day so there is no rushing around stressing and getting stuck in traffic.

2.) Experience:

How long they have been doing make-up is really important. With time they get to experience different skin types, face shapes and eye shapes. They have experienced some pit falls and know how to fix them. An experienced make-up artist will be relaxed, easy going and calm not nervous, this will really help on the big day as it is stressful enough.

3.) Qualifications:

If they are not that experienced look at what qualifications they have, this will give you an indication of the quality of their work. Someone who has a BA Degree in make-up artistry will have alot more hands on experience than someone who has done a one week Bridal Make-up Course.

4.) Price:

Research the different prices in the industry. It is best to choose someone you feel comfortable with and who best meets your budget. Ask if there are any extra charges as sometimes people will charge extra for travel, false eyelashes or tattoo cover. Ask if they have any special offers or group packages as more than one person may want to get their make-up done on the day. Also remember at the end of the day, you get what you pay for, so if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
