Top Makeup Artist related questions

What does a makeup artist do?

A professional makeup artist uses quality makeup and special techniques to enhance your natural look, usually for a wedding or special occasion. With an eye for colour and an artistic flair, they can create any look you’re after and ensure that your makeup is long-lasting and photo-ready.

Why hire a professional mobile makeup artist for your special occasion?

A professional makeup artist has access to top quality products that ensure your makeup stays put and helps you look your best in photos. A makeup artist will ensure you have a flawless finish and won’t require touch-ups throughout your event.

How long does professional makeup last?

You can expect professionally applied makeup to last for up to 12 hours. If you’re planning to be at a lengthy event, your makeup artist may provide you with samples to quickly blot your face and touch-up your setting powder and lipstick.

Do makeup artists need any qualifications?

Makeup artists don’t need any formal qualifications - the most important thing is experience, skill, and quality products. But many do study courses like a Certificate II in Retail Cosmetics, Certificate III in Beauty Services, Certificate IV in Beauty Therapy, Diploma of Screen and Media, and Diploma of Beauty Therapy.

Where can I find the best makeup artist near me?

The best way to find a talented makeup artist near you is on Airtasker. With plenty of local makeup artists to choose from, you’ll find the right artist for your style and your budget.

How much does it cost to hire a makeup artist?

The cost of a makeup artist on Airtasker averages between $70-$150, but it depends on the type of makeup you need, whether it’s peak season for events, the location, and any extras. For example, the cost of bridal makeup is usually around $75-$200.

What does a makeup service include?

Hiring a makeup artist is the best way to reduce your stress and enjoy the lead-up to an event. They’ll meet you at your chosen location, whether it’s your home or a venue, and talk about the look you want to achieve. But the exact inclusions and process you can expect will depend on the type of makeup service you need:

Bridal makeup

Most brides want bridal makeup that looks natural, is long-lasting, and photographs well. Your makeup artist will use cosmetic products that are specially designed for this purpose. They’ll start with using a primer on your skin to provide a smooth surface for your foundation. Airbrush foundation is often used in bridal makeup to ensure full and even coverage without looking or feeling heavy. Your makeup artist will apply a long-wearing lipstick that compliments your colouring. Finally, they’ll use a natural eyeshadow palette to enhance your eye colour, along with false eyelashes and waterproof mascara to frame your eyes.

Special occasion makeup

The biggest difference between special occasion makeup and bridal makeup is style. While bridal makeup is often kept classic or natural, you can opt for a more glamorous or dramatic look for a special occasion. Your mobile makeup artist will still ensure a flawless finish that’s long-lasting so you can look great all day and night, whether you’re at your high school formal, awards night, or a special date. 

Hair styling

Many mobile makeup artists also have a hairdressing background and can help you with mobile hair styling as well. It’s a great way to save time and money, and keep things simple while you get ready for your special occasion. Your makeup artist will be able to create a cohesive look, with a hairstyle that matches your your dress, accessories, and your jewellery. They’ll discuss your preferred hairstyles, then use a range of products and tools to create your look, including a hair straightener, hair curler, hair pins, hair elastics, and hairspray.

I’m going to a wedding Saturday afternoon at 2.30pm and would like to get my makeup done around 1pm. I have clear skin, so I don’t really want anything too heavy, pretty simplistic classic sort of style, nothing too complex. I’m South American background so my skin is a light olive sort of tone. Would love to get someone who’s good with that sort of colouring.

Very happy — prompt and super friendly! Thank you!
