The Role of a Makeup Artist on Your Wedding Day Just like your wedding planner, your photographer and your florist, your makeup artist plays an important role on your wedding day.

The relationship you have with your chosen makeup artist should begin the moment you contact him or her. An established and experienced makeup artist will know what questions to ask to make sure you get precisely the look you want. If you find that you've spoken to some bridal makeup artists and their main concern was getting you booked and taking your money before answering and considering your own concerns/questions then you might want to look around a bit more. Your answers should be dealt with quickly and efficiently. You should know without a doubt that you're dealing with a professional right from the get-go. There should be no room for amateurs on your big day.

At your wedding trial, you shouldn't feel rushed. Some makeup artists offer only a short amount of time for a makeup trial, all the while charging you less than a seasoned pro and rushing themselves out the door but this is a false economy. Why? Let me explain...

Your trial needs to be thorough and you need to feel satisfied, if not elated with your look. Your makeup artist should make a commitment to get to know you, your wedding style and how you really want to look on your wedding day. This cannot be done in a rush and it cannot be done 'on the cheap.' In most cases, makeup artists that rush through a makeup trial don't really care if you're happy. The truth is, they really only care about the bottom line and you're really only a number to them. You deserve better than that.

On your wedding day, your makeup artist's role is to provide you and your chosen bridesmaid's, MOB's, etc., with beautiful makeup no matter what is asked of them. Your wedding day is filled with lots of nervous energy and you want a real pro by your side - someone who makes you feel calm, assured and relaxed. Drama may be surrounding you but your makeup artist should not be part of that. He/she should be the calming influence that makes you feel as though no matter what happens you WILL look the best you've ever looked before in your entire life.

After your wedding is over this shouldn't be the end of your relationship with your makeup artist. Many  makeup artists want to see your wedding pictures and hear how your wedding day went. Get back in touch to say thanks, recommend them to others and leave reviews of their services on bridal websites.

The relationship between you and your makeup artist is so important and if you take the time to find the right one, you'll know it immediately and it will show...
