Q: What if I’m unhappy with my makeup trial?


So sometimes other makeup artists want to light me on fire when I say things like this. But I’ve been in the industry for twelve years, and what I can tell you for sure is that if you have a good makeup artist, there is no moment at the end where they’re like, TADA, here’s this beautiful look that I created for you. Do you like it? Instead, what they’re doing is having conversations with you ahead of time, ahead of that appointment, so they can get a feel for what you’re looking for. You probably have found already some looks from their portfolio that have helped guide them to the look that is your vision for the day. And then lastly, at the appointment, they’re asking for your feedback throughout the service and getting a feel for what you like or don’t like so that they can make tweaks, ultimately makeup. Yes, we are artists and we have egos, but the makeup is about you, the bride, right? And it’s not really about the artist. So you should feel comfortable sharing your feedback and asking for the help if you need it.

If you get to the end of that appointment and you still don’t like it, and you’ve done all of the previous steps that I mentioned, it is okay to just find a new artist. But if you suspect that you’re a person that might go into this feeling that way, I would recommend doing your trial way sooner than the recommended four to six weeks. Because if you don’t like that artist, you are going to need time to book another one. And often the most in demand folks, the best folks, if you will, will already be booked out for your date. So think it through.
