Top Mobile Makeup Artist related questions

It depends on what makeup style you prefer. If you want to have a natural look, it will take no more than 30 minutes. A full face of makeup for weddings and other special events usually takes 45 minutes to an hour and a half. These estimates don't include your hair as it also depends on how long and thick your hair is and the style you want. For good measure, it's best to block at least one to two hours for a complete hair and makeup session.

Typically, they use spray alcohol to sanitize lipsticks, pressed powders, eyeshadow palettes, eyeliners, lip liners, cream blushes, and sponges. For makeup brushes, they usually use a special brush cleanser and lukewarm water. Some even prefer utilizing disposable applicators. Most of these routines are complex and done daily to ensure hygiene.

First, you need to know if you're allergic to any makeup product or brand. Before your appointment, try applying a tiny amount of makeup on top of your hand just to see if you’ll have any adverse reactions. If you tend to have sensitive skin or clogged pores, your artist can avoid using products that have harsh or pore-clogging ingredients. After the event, make sure not to wear your makeup to bed. To be safe, do your nighttime routine earlier in the evening rather than right before your head hits the pillow.

Most makeup artists go through private courses, further education, or apprenticeships to earn a certification. Doing so ensures that they have the required skills, knowledge, and understanding to succeed in the beauty industry. While anyone can call themselves a makeup artist, a certification and formal training show that they have what it takes to do a great job.

Wedding makeup artist

You've got to look your best especially when you're tying the knot! Your wedding is going to be one of the most special, photographed, and immortalized days of your life, so getting an experienced wedding makeup artist is crucial! Whether you want to have a natural look to go with a structured hairstyle or a romantic look with soft curls, your artist can take care of it for you!

All you have to do is tell them your wedding theme and your general idea of how you want to look. You can then relax and let your mobile makeup artist pamper you on your big day!

Photo and video makeup artist

Whether you're a portrait photographer or a videographer who loves taking shots of people, or a model who always gets in front of the camera, getting a professional photo and video makeup artist will make sure your project comes out excellent! How makeup appears in pictures or videos is different than how it appears when you wear it every day. 

It's vital to book a mobile hair and makeup artist near you who understands how certain types of makeup affect the final output. They should also know how light affects the makeup shades and if it works with the subject's face. You want your hair, makeup, and wardrobe to work with each other, and it's your artist's job to ensure that all these factors come together to make the best photos and videos.

Events makeup artist

Are you going to a debut, a company party, or a gala? Whatever event it is that you're attending or planning, hiring an events makeup artist is a wise decision. This way, you can focus more on your event and get more time to have fun! Tell your artist what the theme of the event is and some pegs of how you want to look, and they can get the job done.

They can make sure your outfit suits your makeup, and can also provide suggestions on what look fits you best. It's also important to tell your artist if it's a daytime or nighttime event, so they know if they should give you a more natural look, or a bolder and smokier makeup.
