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:

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 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. 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.

Hey I’m a blogger/content creator (93k followers) and will be front row at a fashion week show, I’m looking for someone to come do my make up for me and maybe put some waves in my hair. I don’t really have any ideas because I’m not 100% sure what I’m wearing yet but likely a blue suit. I’ll be looking to engage a photographer to take some photos afterwards so I can put them up on socials. So if you have that skill I can add more $ Glebe location at a friends house. Happy to tag you on socials and film some content so I can help boost your profile too. I want to be ready for 11am or maybe a bit earlier.

100% happy, can’t wait to work with Daniella again
