Hiring a makeup artist? Things you should consider while hiring an artist for any event:
1- Talent and skill level: check artists' portfolio/ website, references & years of experience and have a trial run prior to hiring in order
to reassure that the artist is capable.
2- Professional attitude: It is important to work with an individual who demonstrates professional appearance & behavior, seems
confident but not arrogant or pushy. It is your absolute right to have a pleasant experience while working with an artist.
3- Professional hygiene: Watch for clean professional Makeup kit; clean brushes; personal hygiene; also be sure that the artist
starts the makeup by sanitizing her/his hands.
4- Professional products, cosmetics, makeup tools: it is a good idea to spend a bit more to hire an artist who invests on
Professional media ready products/ cosmetics to reassure a “lasting makeup application” as well as a” safe” experience. Often very
inexpensive products that are purchased from unreliable sources may not be USA-FDA approved. It may cause skin reactions and/ or the
application won’t hold up over time. But this is very rare however it is good to keep it mind.
5- Punctuality: What if an artist shows up late or not to show at all.... How do you know? Here are a few hints:
A: Did the makeup or hair artist respond to your inquiry quickly?
B: Was he/she on time and prepped at the trail or preview appointment?
C: Has he/she worked for others that you can check references?
One more thing!
Over-booked and over-popular artists are not good options for hiring as well as an inexpensive and un-popular artist. An inexpensive
artist may easily flake on the day of event simply for another offer with a higher pay or for the fact that it’s not much of an income so why
bother! I have experienced that over-rated or over popular artists often lose track and attention from the details which may result
challenges to your event.
