When I meet with any client, my goal is to ask enough questions to find out their personal makeup style. I usually will start with some celeb examples, like are you a Gwen Stefani? The kind of woman getting married in a think winged liner and bold red lips? or are you more a Natalie Portman? you know..fresh skin, soft colors classic stunning beauty. Its my job to figure you out (at least in the beauty department) and put the foot down on bad ideas you might have ( to save you) The last thing I need is a bride walking down the isle thinking about how weird her new eyebrows are making her feel, after I have tried to explain that 'Instabrows' are not super pretty in real life- I want to be one that gets a high five not a 1 star review!
Which leads me to a little advice for any bride on the hunt for a makeup and hair stylist
- Look over artist portfolios, does their work match your style?
- Send an email, ask the questions you want to know- don't be shy!
- If you don't click via email or phone chat and during the trial, book someone else. This is your wedding day
- Have an idea of what you are looking for. Build Pinterest boards, load up your phone with screenshots, spend a Sunday morning tearing out magazine pages- take the time to have some idea of what you want. Make sure your artist is listening to your ideas and delivering the look
- Lastly, there is no other way to nicely say this but, we all know you get what you pay for in life. You can find good artists in all price categories but the best of the best know their worth
