How to find the perfect make-up artist

How to find the perfect make-up artist Q – There are so many make-up artists out there. How do I find the perfect supplier for my wedding?

"Your bridal make-up should enhance your natural beauty, not change it. There is a wide choice of artists out there, but each has their own style. Are you looking for a natural glow, soft glam or full-blown glitz?

"Google is a great place to start your search, especially if you are not from the area. Most brides like to choose someone local to the venue, as an early start may be needed depending on the size of your bridal party. Look through the artist’s portfolios to see what their usual style is and how much experience they have.

"Your make-up artist should know that an early arrival is essential to calm any nerves, deal with last-minute blemishes and most importantly to ensure your make-up remains flawless throughout the day. We would also encourage you to have a trial that allows your supplier to understand your expectations, acknowledge any skin concerns and have a good chat over a cup of tea.

"Your wedding venue will have a selection of suppliers that they will be happy to recommend. Alternatively, try looking at other options like Bridebook, which has portfolios and reviews for suppliers."
