Why all the fuss about Makeup artistes?

Your wedding is over. Your guests had fun. The band? They performed excellently! The food? Out of this world! But all those aspects of the wedding don't really matter anymore after the wedding is over and done with...all you have now to remind you of that beautiful and memorable day is your wedding album.

Now, would you want to flip through the pages of your album and grimace at the sight of your face each time? The answer to that is obviously NO. The only reason why you would grimace or groan inwardly while looking through your wedding album is because your makeup wasn't done well. Perhaps, if you had hired a good Makeup artiste instead of letting that friend of yours talk you into letting her do your makeup, your face would have turned out well. #DeepSigh

Well, I'm not doing this post because i want you to spend extra and pay an MUA at all costs......well, it's a little bit about that too*GoofyGrin*........ If your friend can do your makeup and do it well, then by all means, go ahead with her doing it on your big day. But if you are not so sure about her 'skills', please don't be scared of hurting her feelings, gently but firmly insist on hiring an MUA. Afterall, if you do oblige her and let her do your makeup, you are the one whose feelings will be hurt each time you look at your wedding album.


Wouldn't it make sense to save costs and have a friend, cousin or aunt do it? Yes it would, and that is why i said earlier that if they can do it well, then go ahead and let them. Fix a date with them and have them do a trial session, and if you like what they do on your face, then allow them do your wedding makeup.....BUT remember that you would be the center of attraction that day, everyone would be expecting to see a beautiful bride, and a professional MUA will ensure that you truly look beautiful that day. The best part of my job, the part i love most of all is that moment when i'm done working on my client's face and i hand her the mirror and she gasps softly.."Wow! Is this me?" That's it right there!

Everyone thinks they can do makeup (afterall, is it not just to do the eyebrows, foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick, powder and blush? *Smiles*) The truth of the matter is that makeup is complicated (ask any makeup student....Getting the brows right alone is a struggle), and it takes a seasoned professional to give your face a flawless look. There are tools that makes your makeup flawless and products that should make your makeup last on your MUA has them. However, If you decide to buy those things yourself so that your friend or cousin or aunt or sister can use them on your face, do you know how much that would cost you? It might even end up being more than what you would pay an MUA to do your wedding makeup....yes, makeup is expensive!

Your Makeup artiste's ONLY job is to make you look beautiful on your wedding day, so she focuses on you, starts on time and finishes on time too so that you get to church in good time. She takes her time on your face and pays attention to your facial details to ensure that she does her job well. Assign your makeup to your friend or someone else and she'll do it 'shaperly' (hurriedly) because she wants to be ready for church in time too. (I usually ask my brides to assign 1 full-hour to me for their makeup).


I would have said you should ask them the following questions:

1).Where did you train?
2).Can i see pictures of some faces you've done?
3).How long have you been an MUA?

Note that i said "Would have". But overtime, i have realized that those 3 questions don't matter because......

1). There are MUAs out there that are better than those who trained at well-known and reputable makeup schools (plenty!......i know lots of 'em), so where they train doesn't really matter per se, what matters is that they do a wonderful job.

2). Some MUAs steal pictures of other MUAs works and present them to would-be clients as their works.

3). Sometimes, it doesn't matter how long an MUA has been in the industry. Some pick up very fast and become household names before they themselves know it.

So instead of asking those 3 questions, the best thing to do is fix a date and do a trial makeup session *shrugs* A trial session will let you know exactly what you are getting from any MUA you choose.
Now, those are not the only 3 questions you should the next post, i'll outline some important questions a bride-to-be should ask when scouting for an MUA.

I hope i was able to clarify the reasons why you should hire a makeup artiste for your wedding makeup...the MUA you choose to hire is now up to you. Do the right thing and smile through your wedding album years to come.

The next post would also be about the 'Client/MUA relationship' and what both parties expects from each other so as to work well together, so please stay tuned.
