We realize that everyday you probably get up and perform the same routine. You get ready for work with a shower, breakfast, and then apply your own makeup. But just because you get by living a normal day being your own makeup artist, you probably do not want to trust your own skills on the biggest day of your life. When you think about it, you have put way too much time, effort and money into your wedding plans to not make sure that you go the extra mile in this area as well. When you strut down that aisle, you are going to be wearing the dress of your dreams, some amazing jewelry pieces to accent your look, your hair is going to look amazing and your makeup needs to be applied in a way that matches the quality of these other elements. So, all of that being said, you need to make it your mission to find a quality professional makeup artist who will give you the look that you so richly deserve. The El Paso area has some very good makeup artists for you to consider, you just need to make sure you find the perfect fit for you. And we want to help. So, we have developed this guide in order to help you with your mission, you would do well to heed the words below.
The first thing that you need to do is to find a few candidates that you would like to interview for your wedding position. There are many different ways that you can conduct this search but in our opinion, we suggest three main ones that should give you all of the candidate's that you could possibly need or want. Start by trying to harness the power of the world wide web. Do a Google search for “makeup artists in the El Paso area.” The resulting pages you get back will be more than you can check out but you can start clicking on link after link for as long as you can stand it and determine which artists you think are worth a phone call. We also recommend that you ask your family, friends and coworkers if they have ever hired a professional makeup artist. Was the experience a positive one? If so, get the name. And let's not forget about your wedding vendors that you have already hired. They can be a great source of information including contacts. Once you have a nice list built, start calling candidates and setup meetings to talk about your makeup needs.
When you sit down with each candidate, start by talking about their experience. Have they worked on a lot of brides? This is very important because applying makeup for a wedding can be very different from how its applied for other events. Make sure that you look at their portfolio of past work and ask yourself if you can envision them working on you. It is a very good idea to setup a trial with any of the candidates that you really like. This can tell you for sure whether this is the person to apply your makeup for your big day. Do they use waterproof mascara? Keep in mind that you may cry at some point or you may begin to sweat. Do they use a good primer so that your makeup will last for the entire day? Will they be able to make you look very natural? Obviously, you need to find out how much their services are going to cost. This may seem like a lot of work to go through in order to evaluate your candidates, but you will be very happy when you end up with the perfect makeup artist for you and your special day.
