#1. Experience in creating 'bridal' looks

You may have met several makeup artists with amazing work, but creating a bridal look is altogether a different genre in itself. So, make sure that you ask your artist’s experience, particularly in a bridal look. An experienced bridal makeup artist knows how to handle all types of brides, be it the nervous ones or the ones who throw a lot of tantrums. Also, deciding your look as per the lighting setup at the venue is something your artist should be good at. An amateur on the other hand, will not be able to provide you with such minute details.

#2. Portfolio and references

No matter how well qualified a makeup artist is, it is only the portfolio which can give you a true insight into his or her work. Ask the artist to provide you with a few references and talk to those brides to understand how their experience was. On the other hand, personality is one big factor, which you must consider while hiring a makeup artist. He or she may be the best in the industry, but if the artist has an attitude problem, then it is best to stay away from him/her. You would not want any last minute clashes with your makeup artist to ruin your look.

#3. Charges and taxes

Many makeup artists charge you for every event, while some provide packages as well. If you are opting for a package, inquire about all the inclusions in it. Remember to ask whether the package is inclusive of all taxes or not. You should also be upfront about your wedding timings as well. Many makeup artists often charge an extra fee for staying back till late.

#4. Products and their brands

Most makeup artists use products from established brands. Yet, it is better to confirm the brand he or she uses. If you are not fond of a particular product or are allergic to it, you can always ask your makeup artist to provide you with alternatives. Also, if you are too conscious about the hygiene standards, you can provide the artist with your own products.

#5. Trial sessions

Are you still unsure about your look even after seeing the portfolio? Then you should definitely go for a trial session. Most makeup artists will agree to it if you ask for one. The trial will also allow you to gauge the professionalism of your makeup artist.

#6. Multiple bookings on your wedding date

Tired, stressed out and overworked are not the words you would like to use to describe your makeup artist on your wedding day. As the wedding season starts, makeup artists are high in demand and they often take two to three bookings per day. And, as a result, you do not get his full attention. So pay a little extra and book your artist exclusively for youself. It may prove to be a little expensive, but it will definitely be worth it.
