This is for everyone who is getting married and looking for a great makeup artist, Trust me it is daunting to see so many of them claiming the best. Just 5-10 years ago it was absolutely easy to figure out who is going to be your makeup artist as the options were limited however today we have thousands of makeup artists giving overwhelming options to the brides to be.

Clients are often confused as they get options in every category with every price range.  So what can you do to ensure you get the best as per your budget and requirement? Let me say this way – How do you ensure that get the best makeup artist for you?

5 factors to consider before selecting the makeup artist for your bridal makeup

Where are you getting married?

This is a very important factor to consider as this will decide the base quality of bridal makeup artists. With destination weddings trending it becomes even more important to understand from which place you hire the makeup artist from. If you are getting married in a metro city you will have more options however if you are getting married at a tourist place or a remote location then your options will be very limited. So if you are taking a luxury of a destination wedding or getting married at your native place then it’s best to have your Bridal Makeup Artist travel along with you.

This is where you need to hire a highly rated, reliable, and experienced Makeup Artist who will ensure your bridal makeup is done professionally, and on time.

What is your budget?

If you do not want to spend much then do not expect much from your makeup. With lesser price you will get an inexperienced Makeup artist who has not done lot of wedding and probably doesn’t have world class products for best results. We are not saying cheap is always bad however there is a reason why cheap is cheap and expensive is expensive. If you have the budget then do not cut down on the quality of your makeup. Saving a couple of thousands can cost you dearly on your D-Day!

Are you comfortable?

People don’t talk about this much but we really consider this is a very important factor to consider. You have been absolutely comfortable and amicable with your bridal makeup artist and vice versa. If they are not comfortable then they wouldn’t be able to give you the best, if you are not comfortable then you wouldn’t get the best. No matter how big or small the artist is, please always make sure you felt at home, excited, and comfortable. This is where experienced makeup artist comes in handy and get hired because they exactly know how to deal with any situation.

How you want to be?

Before selecting a makeup artist you must have some idea how you want to look like a bride which includes bridal dress, jewelry, and everything else. Many clients come to us asking us to refer one of the celebrities like Anushka, Katrina, or Alia Bhatt which is fair enough however your look depends on your face type, skin type, and its condition. However, it helps when you know how you want to look at it and then see the makeup artist’s work if it is coming near to it. Remember something which looks amazing in a photo may look horrendous in person, A seasoned Makeup artist will provide beauty consultation with disclaimers, Do not be stubborn if your makeup artist suggests otherwise. They mean the best for you.

Check the Google Reviews

Yes, I know everyone is judged these days basis the number of stars you have in front of your business name, However, I recommend you read the reviews rather than only looking at the stars. This will give you the confidence for selecting a makeup artist. Do google the name of your makeup artist, if you do not find many hits or no hits then maybe it is not a very good idea to take your chances. Mostly that makeup artist has just started her/his career. Don’t get me wrong we have some amazing Students who do some top-of-the-line work better than experienced makeup artists but then in this situation, everything boils down to luck.

Let us take a look the best ways to search for a makeup artist in your town.


Social media is such a boom for business owners, they can reach clients from any corner of the world and vice versa. Your first preference should be Instagram and most of the time you will find what you are looking for and then you can use google to further investigate the makeup artist. All you need to do is search for Bridal Makeup Artist and the city name, you will 100s of results. Start browsing and check the portfolio, if you like someone make a note. Create a top 10 list.

Word of mouth

This is a great tried and tested tool, you ask your friend or relatives for a recommendation. They will give you someone tried and tested however what worked for them will not necessarily work for you. Get more options and investigate from your side. Just don’t be lazy, it is your wedding for god sake.

Google it but Avoid Wedding Aggregators

We do not recommend going to wedding aggregators, Reason is simple, they charge makeup artist to come on the first page of their website. Anyone with money can pay them and get the portfolio bumped up. On the other hand, clients when searching on the website may think they are the top makeup artists which may not be the case. Of course, you can contact them if you liked the work.

We strongly recommend using keywords like Bridal Makeup Artist near me, Top Bridal Makeup Artist, Best bridal makeup near me, etc. to get the best out of google. You will see a lot of ads, Skip them and go for websites that are from the makeup artists directly. Check the first 2 pages and make a list of those makeup artists. Usually, they will be the most popular ones.
