The bridal makeup artist is someone who really has to get up close and personal with the bride. Add to that a pandemic, and the situation can get really complicated! That is why, when it comes to choosing the right makeup artist these days, it has to be someone who is responsible enough to ensure the safety and hygiene to the utmost standards. So we asked some of the vaccinated and verified makeup artists we have to tell us the precautions they have been taking while doing bridal makeup during the pandemic, and it's amazing to see the responses we got!
