Yesterday I had the privilege of being involved in Esther’s french garden inspired wedding at her parents house near Ringwood. This is the first of Esther’s two weddings due to COVID, and I am lucky enough to be doing her makeup for both!
Esther wanted something pink, classic and pretty for her first look. For her second we are going for deeper tones and more of an autumn vibe. This one was all about the prettiness and keeping everything light and bright x

Today’s question revolves around the vulgar subject of money. While the hire of a makeup artist is properly going to be your least expensive purchase, a lot of brides are still curious to know what they’re getting for their money. A fair question. So without further ado:
1. Training. Any makeup artist worth his/her salt will have received a level of training when starting to develop their necessary skills and will continue this training whether by attending more courses, events or seminars to expand these expertise.
2. Experience. This is probably the main factor in how much a makeup artist will charge. Over the four years I have been in the wedding industry, I have worked with many different bridal clients, their bridesmaids and mothers – meaning I have experience working with different skin types, ethnicity and varying ages. I know what will look gorgeous on a bride in her 20’s and sophisticated on a lady in her 60’s and the differences required in products and technique.
3. The makeup kit. I spend about 80% of any earnings on maintaining my makeup kit. This includes regularly purchasing new products, replacing short term usage products such as mascaras, the constant buying of false eyelashes and maintaining the brushes.
4. Travel. Not the most glamorous part of the job but obviously a necessity. Please note I would be more than happy to travel to your wedding if you’re getting married in the Bahamas!
5. And finally, you wouldn’t believe the time I spend filling out paperwork! x
