Though brides often spend hours determining their wedding photographer, a makeup artist is usually one of those smaller details that doesn't come in until later. Who you hire, however, can make a meaningful difference, ensuring you look and feel your absolute best on your big day (and in the photos that follow). Weddingbells recently got the full scoop from Toronto bridal makeup expert Colette Cormier, on what brides should look for when evaluating potential wedding makeup artists to hire. "When you look at photos of an artist's work, you want to look for these signs that the makeup is technically well applied," says Cormier.
Cormier also suggests looking for before and after shots which demonstrate the artist's ability to tackle larger skin issues like blemishes. Ideal portfolios should also include a range of ages. "Mothers of brides want to know the artist doesn't target only 20-something faces," says Cormier.
Keep our handy little checklist in mind when you're looking over potential makeup artists' portfolios. Taking some time to find an experienced wedding makeup artist for your big day will ensure that you look your absolute best for your walk down the aisle.
