The 5 Most Important Questions to Ask Your Bridal Make Up Artist

With the rise of social media, it’s become much easier to come across the work of incredible make up artists and much harder to choose between them! To help you find your perfect match, we’ve assembled a list of the top 5 questions to ask when chatting with potential make up artists.

Can I see your portfolio?

A good make up artist will have a portfolio that will cover a variety of looks, in different lighting conditions, so you can see their skills shine.

Are you able to do the type of look I want?

Many make up artists do not specialize in certain styles: vintage make up, for example. If they feel that they cannot deliver your wishes they will recommend someone who can.

Do you do a trial, and what happens if I’m not happy?

Every good make up artist will offer pre-wedding trials and will work with you until you are happy. It’s worth checking that your make up artist has the availability in case this takes more than one trial appointment.

How many people can you accommodate on the wedding day?

If you have a large wedding party then ask the make up artist how many people they are able to accommodate in the time you have available.

Do you travel to my location or would I visit yours?

The vast majority of bridal make up artists will come to you on the morning of your wedding, but it’s worth noting that sometimes an artist will work from their own salon.
