Your big day deserves quality choice of vendors and a good makeup artist is certainly one of them. Before you say “I DO”, it is important you dot all your ‘i’s and cross your ‘t’s, and don’t allow sentiments to ruin your day. Hire a good stylist but make sure he/she is an MUA. Your big day is just one event in your lifetime so you must get your makeup right. Don’t engage the service of an unprofessional friend in the name of favour. Looking good on your wedding is as important as picking the perfect wedding dress.

Here are few tips to help:

  1. Set a realistic budget you can afford on your makeup and do not try to look like any other bride. Hire a makeup artist you are comfortable with and ensure he/she can accommodate your budget too. Ensure that you pay for the services rendered in full to avoid unnecessary disagreement.
  2. When hiring makeup artists for your big day, another key thing that we need to do is run a makeup trial session. This can give you an idea of how you want to look on your wedding day and it can also give you the peace of mind you are hiring the best makeup artist.
  3. Do your background checks very well. If you’ve got the luxury, it would be a good idea to entrust all of these services to a very good event planner whom you’re sure would place you in capable hands.
  4. Finally, every vendor deserves respect so please place value on them. Your hairstylist or makeup artist is a solution and service provider.
