Questions to ask your make-up artist before booking

Bride having makeup applied Q – What questions should I ask a make-up artist before booking?

"Before booking, you should see examples of their past work to ensure that you like their particular style. Ask for links to their work, these are usually made available via Instagram, Facebook or their website.

"Check if they specialise in weddings. The term make-up artist is broad and covers a wide variety of sectors, therefore skill sets can vary significantly.

"If travelling to a salon is not part of your plan, then you need to ensure you select a supplier who can travel to you. This is usually more relaxing and eliminates the chance of your look getting spoiled outside in the elements.

"Ask how long the application is likely to take. If you have a large bridal party, you could ask your artist to bring along another person, so the start times won’t have to be quite as early.

"Find out how many bookings your supplier takes per day. Most professionals will only take on one bridal party so that you will receive their full undivided attention. The last thing you want is for them to have to dash off to another booking.

"Weddings can be expensive, therefore you need to plan accordingly and check that there will be no unexpected costs. Check if eyelashes or airbrush application is included in the cost. In addition, find out what the travel cost will be and how it’s calculated."
