Choosing your makeup artist can be tricky. Here on the Mississippi Coast we honestly have so many really great artists to consider. What would I suggest when choosing a makeup artist for your BIG DAY?!
Now let me go ahead and just say this… this is a TWO TIP TUESDAY blog! This is very short and I could throw off ten ideas right now, but I’m only giving two!
Look at the reviews, the photos, social media, etc. So this may seem like I’m throwing several tips into one, but we can pretend it’s one since they run hand in hand!
Also, ask your friends who’ve gotten married here on the Coast who they used for their MUA. Now keep in mind, a makeup artist will often go as dramatic or as glam as the client will want, so even if their style wasn’t yours, take a look at the makeup artists website, Facebook page, or Instagram account, you may love what you see!
Another fantastic idea is to schedule a consultation with them to see if you really click with them as a person. It’s one thing to like their work, but if you don’t like them, then you may want to look another direction!
Secure them early!
You wouldn’t believe how quickly those dates can book up! Ask your MUA how you can secure your spot.
