Things to Know before Going to a Professional Makeup Artist

By Navin Prakash Subscribe to RSS | April 30th 2012 | Views:

Every woman's day starts in one way or another with makeup. But if you are working in the professional TV or movie industry, or if you have a special event coming up, makeup becomes an essential aspect you can’t do without. It is a pre-requisite for any kind of special event or shoot because a picture lasts forever. High pixel professional cameras can capture the minutest of scars or pigmentation on your skin. Therefore, it is highly critical for models, movie stars or any person to choose the right professional make-up artist who can make you put your best face forward for the camera. Your pictures should be such that they should speak for themselves leaving a lasting impression for the viewer rather than putting you in an embarrassing position. That is the reason why top movie stars hire their own make-up artists and employ them full-time rather than relying on different artists in different production houses.

However, hiring the right makeup artist is a daunting task. That’s the reason they are in such high demand. So rather than taking a chance, it is better to do some research and choose the right make-up artist for you.

First and foremost, don’t rely on word of mouth publicity. Ask for the pictures of the artist’s previous work and decide for yourself. Look at their portfolio first and negotiate the amount they charge for what you think their work is worth to you.

Secondly, opt for someone with experience. You do not want an amateur to experiment with you. However, keep in mind, the more the experience the higher the price. You can also read online reviews about their work and better yet, ask for references. Check with your references if the person you are hiring is reliable or not, and whether his work is flawless or not.

Once you choose a make-up artist, sign a contract and ensure your peace of mind. It is always advisable to get a written document even if you are hiring it for a wedding or any other function. This way, you can be rest assured that the artist will not go back on his word in lieu of a better deal from someone else.

When utilizing a professional makeup artist, it is also very important to know the products that they use. There are certain products that might enhance your look but they start withering off after a few hours. There is no use of looking beautiful for only a brief period to potentially look disastrous not too long after. For these reasons, it is important to choose the best products and never compromise on quality. Waterproof and smudge proof products are highly recommendable for quality purposes. Hygiene and sanitation are also crucial. Apart from the artist’s expertise in applying make-up, it is important that they sanitize their brushes and other equipment after every use and use disposable products whenever possible. These might be small details but they go a long way in making a favorable reputation for the artist.

Make your artist understand what exactly you want in terms of look. You can also plan a trial run to see their work first before utilizing them at a time when you cannot afford mistakes or mishaps.

Last but not least, look for someone who is able to reflect the best of you, rather than designing a personality that does not reflect you. It is highly important that you are able to carry the look they will give you well. It has to blend with your personality. In other words, your body language, overall persona and your make-up have to gel together in order to create the wow effect.
