What You’ll Get When You Book A Party Makeup Artist
Basic or detailed hairstyling
How to Prepare Before I Get My Makeup Done
Keep your face moisturised as it helps the makeup to go on smoothly and primes the face so that the makeup doesn’t look cakey (dry skin equals flaking makeup)
Find photos of makeup and hairstyles you like for reference - to share with your party MUA so that they can easily understand your preferences. However, do trust them to know what style will suit your skin type and face shape as well, plus complement your outfit.
If you’re having your saree or dupatta draped, do find reference photos of the draping style you want as well.
Find a button down shirt or top to wear (and put your blouse on beforehand) so that you don’t ruin your makeup and hair when you’re changing.
If you’re getting ready at the venue, ensure your packed your outfit, jewellery, footwear and button down shirt before you leave the house.
If you have a favourite lipstick or any other makeup product you love, carry it along so that the MUA can use it on you.
You should also prepare a mini touch-up kit with pins, blotting paper, lipstick, moisturiser, foundation and concealer to touch-up at the venue if you need to.
Do NOT get a facial done in the 1-2 days before your makeup session as one should not get makeup done immediately after that.
How to get the most out of your Party Makeup Artist Booking
Talk about your preferences with your makeup artist - show her photographs of what you like.
While the makeup artist is getting you ready, feel free to share any worries you might have. Don’t wait till everything is done and then say what you wanted because it’s easier for the MUA to change or fix something as she goes. You most likely will not have time to get it redone later.
Feel free to tell your MUA what you don’t want. For example, you may not want eyelash extensions or a dramatic winged liner - just tell the artist it’s not something you like. She will respect your wishes.
Click a photo and check how the makeup is looking on camera - in both natural and artificial lighting.
Ensure the base matches your skin tone.
Check that the colour of your face, neck and back are the same. If not, remind the MUA to apply foundation on all exposed skin.
Check for dry patches where the makeup is flaking. If there are any, ask the MUA to gently dab moisturiser on the area and correct it.
Check if blemishes, acne marks and pimples are covered to your satisfaction. However, do understand that it’s not possible to completely cover them without making it look unnatural.
If the makeup does not meet your expectations, go ahead and ask the makeup artist to either tone it down or make it bolder.
Finally, you can ensure your kajal stays on for longer by using a cotton bud to dry your waterline before applying kajal. And ensure primer is applied on your face and over the eyelids before the makeup goes on to help it last longer.
What to check for in Hairstyle & Sari Draping
For your hairstyle, it’s important to take note of your comfort level. If a pin is tugging and uncomfortable, tell your hairstylist so that they can move the pins around.
Check if your hairstyle is holding up well and in place - move your head around to check it’s not opening up
For sari draping, do the same thing and move around to check that the pleats don’t open and that it’s easy to sit and stand without opening up the sari.
