Once you have set the date for your big day it is never too early to start pulling together all of your plans, choosing your venue, looking at flowers, dresses and of course looking for the right makeup artist. There are a lot of things that you will want to take into consideration when selecting a makeup artist in Cornwall or any other part of the UK, so you should certainly start looking early.
If you have friends who are already married, then a good place to start is by asking them about the makeup artist that they used. If they were really happy with their work, then they will be more than delighted to recommend them to you. If you are getting married and having your reception in the same venue, then you could also ask them if they have a list of make up artists for weddings that they use. Once you have created a short list of makeup artists you would like to consider it is time to think about meeting with some of them. Don’t forget that you need to find a makeup artist who is relatively local to where you are getting married; if you live in Manchester but are getting married in North Cornwall then you will need a makeup artist who is based in Cornwall.
Your makeup artist will be with you on one of the most important days of your life, so one of the most important things to think about is that they need to be someone who you can feel completely comfortable and who will fit seamlessly into your wedding plans. Gather together some ideas of the type of look you want; you may also want some pictures of your wedding dress if you have already picked it. Takes these with you when you go to meet your potential makeup artists and discuss your vision with them.
Ask to see examples of their previous work, this will give you a really good insight into just what they can do.
A good makeup artist will always do a trial of the look that you are considering in advance of the wedding, you need to check that you are happy with the makeup, their skills and most importantly that you are not allergic to any of the products that they use.
If they do not offer a makeup trial, then step away and look for someone else. This is one thing that you need to be comfortable with, well in advance of the big day.
Other important things to consider are what will happen if they are not able to make it on your big day, for example as a result of illness. Again, a good makeup artist will be happy to discuss this with you and will have a contingency plan that will put your mind at rest.
