Today’s question revolves around the vulgar subject of money. While the hire of a makeup artist is properly going to be your least expensive purchase, a lot of brides are still curious to know what they’re getting for their money. A fair question. So without further ado:
1. Training. Any makeup artist worth his/her salt will have received a level of training when starting to develop their necessary skills and will continue this training whether by attending more courses, events or seminars to expand these expertise.
2. Experience. This is probably the main factor in how much a makeup artist will charge. Over the four years I have been in the wedding industry, I have worked with many different bridal clients, their bridesmaids and mothers – meaning I have experience working with different skin types, ethnicity and varying ages. I know what will look gorgeous on a bride in her 20’s and sophisticated on a lady in her 60’s and the differences required in products and technique.
3. The makeup kit. I spend about 80% of any earnings on maintaining my makeup kit. This includes regularly purchasing new products, replacing short term usage products such as mascaras, the constant buying of false eyelashes and maintaining the brushes.
4. Travel. Not the most glamorous part of the job but obviously a necessity. Please note I would be more than happy to travel to your wedding if you’re getting married in the Bahamas!
5. And finally, you wouldn’t believe the time I spend filling out paperwork! x
Yesterday I had the privilege of doing the bridal makeup for Kate and matron of honour Emma at New Forest wedding venue The Master Builder’s at Buckler’s Hard. Kate wanted her wedding makeup to be soft, delicate with a touch of pink – whilst matron of honour Emma went for a natural finish with pinky lips.
As Kate is currently pregnant and had this amazing natural glow, I didn’t want to hide that with too much foundation so I kept everything base-wise very light. I did want to create depth with Kate’s eyes though so built up a pinky toned smokey eye using black & brown shadow to soften the look along the eye line x
