Makeup artists provide professional makeup applications either at the site of your event or in a salon or studio. These skilled artists work with their clients to enhance their best facial features for special events like weddings, photoshoots, parties, proms, fashion shows, and more. Many makeup artists offer complementary services like airbrush or special effects makeup as well.
Professional makeup artists are required to clean their brushes and tools to maintain the highest sanitary standards for their clients. Professionals typically use a daily brush spray to clean their tools between each client. A deep clean is also recommended for brushes at least once a week to avoid product and bacteria buildup. Clean brushes are an absolute necessity for makeup artists so be sure to ask the professional about their processes.
Most makeup artists charge for trials, especially if they are traveling to your location. Trial fees can either be included in their overall total for their services or charged as an additional cost. Makeup artists are compensated for the use of their product and the time it takes to learn your preferences and desired look.
Licensing for makeup artists is dependent upon the state in which their services are offered. Most states require a cosmetology license for makeup artists in salon settings. Other states do not require licensure for services offered outside of the salon such as weddings, photoshoots, and other private events. Before booking a professional, ask them to provide details about their current licenses to ensure they have met all the requirements.
Yes, professional makeup artists provide a wide selection of high-end makeup for clients of all skin types. The cost of their service includes the use of such products.
Many professional makeup artists offer their services for Halloween parties, photos, and events. Whether you need a subtle look to complement your costume or a complete transformation to scare the neighborhood, they can work with you to make sure your Halloween is one to remember!
Many professionals begin with your eye makeup so that any unwanted lines or smudges can be easily covered with foundation. This eliminates the need to reapply layers after touching the lids or correcting mistakes.
Eye drops are not only used to instantly brighten tired eyes, but also used on the skin to neutralize red or irritated areas. The same ingredients that reduce redness in your eyes can be an effective treatment for your skin as well.
Yes, many makeup artists will travel to your home or your event to provide their services. If you need a makeup artist to apply touch-ups throughout your event, be sure to discuss the total cost of their services for the hours they will be needed.
On average, a professional makeup artist costs $100-$150. This price will vary depending on your location, the complexity of the makeup, and the artist’s experience level. You should also be prepared to tip an additional 15-25% for a job well done!
The number of people needing makeup services will also affect the price. If you’re hiring a wedding makeup artist, you might want them to do makeup for the bride as well as the bridal party. For an additional cost, the artist may even be able to stick around through the wedding photos to offer touchups.
Professional makeup artists should arrive to gigs with a fully equipped kit of high-quality cosmetics in a wide variety of colors. This includes the essentials such as primer, foundation, setting powder, concealer, blush, eyeshadow, eye pencils, mascara, lipstick, gloss, and various application brushes. It’s also important to bring items like tissues, cotton swabs, Q-tips, hand towels, makeup remover, spray bottles, and tweezers. Make sure to pack and organize your kit well in advance!
Makeup artists oftentimes practice on friends and family to gain experience with various features, shapes, colors, and ages. Another option is to purchase a professional quality practice head made of soft, washable rubber or plastic. When looking at the final results, be sure to examine your work in different light settings and take a picture to study and improve on your techniques.
