When clients see someone like myself who is both skilled in makeup and hair styling – there seems to be a little reluctance in being able to freely ask whether I wouldn’t mind doing just makeup or just hair. In fact I don’t mind at all – I’m just excited to be a part of your big day and if by my doing a gorgeous cat-flick, or a soft tousled up-do you feel completely fierce and ready for your red carpet moment then I don’t mind at all!
If you are confident in applying your own makeup, but need a little assistance in the hairstyling department then always feel you can contact me and discuss your requirements. What really helps, when discussing hairstyles on email, is to tell me of any hair pieces you have purchased and want to wear or if you have decided to go for a veil and the setting this has. For example, does the veil have a comb attached or clips? Also, send me any images of styles you like to get a sense of what you’re after. If you have no idea of what you want then don’t panic – we can always discuss this at your trial. Lastly, you will need to send me a description of your own hair and any images of it’s condition, length and colour.
Top Tip – My top tip when searching for wedding hairstyles you like is to try and find styles that are very similar in colour to your own hair and the same length. That way you will not be disappointed when the same style in blonde doesn’t look quite the same as in brown hair.
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
