Heera did an excellent job getting myself and 2 bridesmaids ready for my wedding! Her professional experience shone through with her ability to work efficiently whilst providing help with our styling questions and even last minute tweaks to my wedding dress! It was a pleasure communicating with Heera, exchanging calls and pictures to agree on the look we were wanting. Thank you Heera, we all enjoyed spending the afternoon with you, you made me feel very special :) Hope to work with you again in the future. I'll be sure to send through some wedding photos :)

Suggested reads about Makeup Artist

What do makeup artists do?

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. Here are some of the makeup artist jobs that you can expect from Taskers:

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 complements your look. 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 in style. While bridal makeup is often kept classic or natural, you can opt for a more glamorous or dramatic look for a special occasion. If you're attending a costume party, you can request special effects for a complete makeover. 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 event. 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.
