Makeup artists are the magicians who can transform your face from “Nay” to “Yay” with their sleight of hand. Their dexterity in highlighting your beautiful features and enhancing the visual appeal of your face is something to hold in awe. While it is true that any conscious person can handle fixing up their faces on their own, there are some situations that demand professional intervention. This article will take you on a walkthrough of when and how to choose a makeup artist.
When do you need to hire a makeup artist?
Everyday business requires just little makeup, which is more or less basic when you are attending a casual gathering. Some amount of foundation to even out your skin tone, a basic eyeliner outline, a nude eyeshadow and some lipstick usually does the trick. However, for the events listed under, since they demand dressing up considerably, you need a professional makeup artist to make you look extra gorgeous and get that wow factor rolling for you:
• Weddings – whether it be your own or one of your friend’s, weddings are a special event. Not only do you need to pick out a dress very carefully, but you also need a makeup artist to help you look your best.
• Company dinners – there are many working women around the globe who are required to attend company dinners and other celebrations, where many important people are invited. Hiring a makeup artist for these events will ensure you don’t overdo things yourself. A professional yet fit-for-dinner look can be easily had with a little assistance from a professional.
• Galas – Many of us are part of greater causes and socially responsible activities. Gala dinners are usually held for members, sponsors and clients, making them a sensitive platform. Getting the right look becomes important, and for an amateur, things can easily get out of hand during makeup.
How to hire a makeup artist
There are so many makeup artists out there, but not all of them are professionals. Here are a few things you can consider to help you hire the right one.
• Interview – this is the best way to find out how much an artist knows about what he/she is doing. Makeup techniques should be their second nature. They should know which palette would suit your skin tone and eye color, for starters.
• Tools – ask about the tools the artist uses. Sometimes, skill allows them to create better results with basic tools. Swanky is not always good – especially because the artist who does not have much skill will try to cover it up with a lot of automated stuff.
• Products – no one knows your skin better than yourself. Ensure that the artist agrees to using products of your preference on your skin – make sure he/she has them.
The above tips should have you sorted.
