There are many makeup artists out there, especially if you are in a big city. It is hard to decide which makeup artist you should hire. Many people look up a makeup artist, see their price, and chose the cheapest one. However, this may not always be the best option for you.
When hiring a makeup artist, you want someone that is incredibly knowledgeable about makeup. Everyone has different skin, which means that different products will work different on other people. There are also many different face shapes out there, and the way you apply makeup should be different depending upon each different shape. Therefore, you want a makeup artist who has knowledge on how to properly apply makeup and which products would best work for you.
You also want to think about this artists style. Every makeup artist has a strong suit, and also things they are not very good at. You need to first figure out what type of look you are going for, and then try to find an artist who is good at that particular style. You can simply look at their portfolio to make this choice. However, if you want a makeup look that has a smokey eye, you won’t want someone who has never even done this look. You want someone who can do a smokey eye incredibly.
Makeup artists are very talented, and makeup is truly a work of art. You want to make sure that you are working with someone who has reviews. I can’t stress the importance of ensuring that you are working with someone who has reviews. There can be many artists who unfortunately take photos from the internet or other pages to build their portfolio. However, if you can read reviews directly from past clients, you can see how others experiences were. After all, you don’t want to work with someone who doesn’t give you a great experience, despite having pretty makeup.
There are many places where you can find great makeup artists, but choosing the right makeup artist for you depends on your personal style, budget, and time. Sometimes you may be on a time crunch and need to settle with a makeup artist that you didn’t dream of having. However, having a good attitude towards it and communicating your wishes will make it easier for both of you. As long as you are open about your end goal with the look, most makeup artists can create certain looks.
So to recap on what to look for:
- An artist who has had good feedback and or reviews.
- An artist who specialises in the look you are after.
- An artist who is knowledgeable about makeup and uses up to date products.
