Sahana Says Ask What Products They Use

This is very important, I can’t tell you enough. Once I booked a makeup artist without asking this and while she used good products majorly, she also used a bunch of first-copy products when it came to minor products like highlighter and that shimmer powder over the eye shadow. I dint get any infection but I was scared the whole time as I have super sensitive skin. So avoid the tension and ask them specifically.

Payum Says Discuss Your Makeup And Hair Look

Discussing your makeup and hair look is very important BEFORE you book the artist as they need to understand what you have in mind for your look. I spoke to my makeup person, showed her photos that I had saved and she said that it helped a lot to understand what I have in mind.

Namrata Says Show Them Your Outfit

If you have booked your makeup artist for 3 events, show them all three outfits. We think how does it matter but after talking to my makeup artist I realised that even blouse neck can decide your hairstyle and colour of your outfit will decide your makeup so I would advise everyone to show their bridal outfits.

Bhairavi Says To Discuss The Payment Method Before The Wedding

My makeup artist dint say that she would accept only cash payments and my family is vehemently against any cash payments so on the wedding day there was a huge chaos. She wasn’t willing to leave until cash was paid and my family needed me to get to the mandap. Finally my friend convinced her to take the cheque for time being and promised to pay her the cash next day. So please discuss this!

Kanishka Says Check Their Portfolio And Cross Verify If It’s A New Artist

Sadly some makeup artists who are still new show someone else’s work to get new work. So if you are planning to book a new artist, please cross verify if this is their work. With senior ones, you can check their portfolio to see if the style of their makeup is what you want. They can change it but mostly the signature style remains the same.

Vaidehi Says Remember To Be Transparent

This is a little strange but it’s important. I had a destination wedding and the wedding hotel was a 5-star property. For close family we had booked rooms in the same hotel and rest of them were placed in nearby hotels only, which were close to a 4-star property. My makeup artist team was very offended that I dint station them at the same hotel as me which I thought was lame. The offered accommodation was great and had a lot of my family staying but there was a problem with the team. So remember to share all details as possible.

So, now you know a few tips to keep in mind before the booking, so go ahead and choose from the best makeup artists WedMeGood has and make sure you look like a million bucks on your wedding!
