How to choose a wedding make-up artist according to a pro MUA

The four fail-safe tips you need to get it right

how to choose a wedding make-up artist

While some brides prefer to do their own make-up, the majority will rely on a wedding make-up artist for their big day.

But with so many out there, there’s almost too much choice and it can be hard to navigate the sea of make-up artists to find the perfect one to suit your taste and what you have in mind for your big day. (Plus, they’ve got to know what they’re doing.)

Weddings are a massive milestone event, so it’s essential that you choose right – that’s why we sought out the best of the best to advise you on the matter.

Below Amy Conway, Bobbi Brown PRO Artist, shares her top four tips for picking out that all important bridal MUA. Whatever your wedding budget, these are the secrets to success…

Do your research

‘When it comes to choosing your wedding make-up artist, find a style that you love. All make-up artists have that signature style, whether it’s glowing skin or stand out eyes, so meet with a make-up artist who creates the looks you love and reflects your own individual style.’

It’s totally acceptable to Instagram stalk!

‘Nowadays, Instagram can be a portfolio for make-up artists so you can see their previous bridal work. If you’re scrolling and just loving everything you see – meet with them! You can also use this as a tool to pick out your favourite looks that the make-up artist has created.’

Calm is key

‘Go for someone that makes you feel calm, it’s a great trait to look out for when choosing your makeup artist. They would have played a part in a wedding morning many times before, so their job is to not only make you feel and look amazing, but to also keep you calm while they have you in their hot seat.

Recommendations

‘I’ve had many brides through recommendations, but what’s beautiful about it is that you get to know their families and friendship circles well.

For a bride, it feels like you know that make-up artist a little more too, which just allows you to be comfortable with them and will make the wedding morning go even more smoothly.’

With these tips under your belt, you’re sure to find your perfect professional make-up match.

Office Makeup, Weekend Makeup, Party Makeup: How Much Do You Mix It Up?

makeup looks for different occasionsI was going out somewhere recently, and I overshot the mark on makeup — I wanted to do more than my daily makeup look, but less than my evening/date night/party look, and landed up far too close to my “party look.” So I got curious, and thought it might be a fun discussion for today: how much do you vary your makeup for different occasions — and how much do you vary your looks within those situations? For example, do you always have the exact same office makeup look, or do you vary it with different products and colors? How wide is your range with makeup — for example, from “no makeup for errands” to “four eyeshadows and three mascaras for date night”?

For my $ .02, I have a pretty wide spectrum of makeup looks for different occasions — possibly too wide!

  • Weekend/errands/lounging around makeup: When I was younger I do seem to recall putting on some makeup once I’d finished with my workout, even if I didn’t plan on leaving the house. I have never been the kind of person to put on makeup for workouts, though (fiiine, maybe some tinted lip balm) and by my 20s I spent a lot of my weekends avoiding workouts (you know, the 9 AM planned workout that happens at the last possible moment before you have to start getting ready to go out), so by that time weekend makeup became “no makeup / PARTY MAKEUP.” These days I really have no compunction about going out without makeup, though, particularly if it’s a school dropoff or weekend kid-related errand.
  • Daily makeup/office makeup: As I’ve written before, makeup for work for me generally means concealer, eyebrow, eyeliner, one color of eyeshadow, mascara, blush, lip liner, lipstick. I tend to have different combinations of eyeliner/eyeshadow/lipstick (so I wear taupe lipstick with greige eyeshadows, but pink lipstick with taupe eyeshadows, for example), but it was generally alternating between 1-3 looks, but always the same general products applied in the same general way.
  • Work from home makeup: When I only worked from home occasionally, this generally meant “no makeup.” When I started working from home all the time, though, I struggled with this a bit because I had read all this stuff about how if you’re working from home you should “get dressed as if you’re going into the office,” and it conflicted with my previous “no makeup” mentality. Even if I had successfully completed a workout, if it was just me, why should I put on makeup? It all came down to “who am I wearing makeup for anyway”? For some reason, after having kids, daily mascara irritates my eyes, so I didn’t want to do a “full office makeup look,” or at least what that had meant for me previously. I also switched to wearing glasses about 95% of the time around this point, which I also felt necessitated less makeup. (Fun fact: I have uneven eyebrows no mater how much I get them threaded, so when I’m in my glasses the uneven eyebrows are more noticeable, particularly if I darken them with eyebrow powder/gel/liner. But if I’m wearing contacts I absolutely feel like I need to darken them. Shrug.) What I’ve settled on lately for ease of application but a bit more polished than absolutely no makeup is sheer lipstick like a Chubby stick, blush, undereye concealer, waterproof eyeliner, and occasionally a liquid shadow. The routine takes me about two minutes, maybe less. Even now I alternate between three eyeliner colors and different lipstick colors — I wear the brown eyeliner with pinky/berry/purple lipstick and navy eyeliner with taupe lipstick. I’d like to get gray eyeliner in the routine but the current one I have smudges too much; I’m eyeing this one, which I have in brown and is amazing.)
  • Must Look Nice But Not Party Makeup (Big Presentation/Job Interview Makeup): For a midday meeting or something, at the very least I put on mascara, refresh my eyeliner and use Touche Eclat on top of my work from home makeup. If I’m starting from a fresh face, though, I’ll put on foundation in addition to concealer, do a little contouring/highlighting, maybe pull out two eyeshadow colors to blend, eyebrow, mascara, blush, and eyeliner.
  • Date night / party makeup: This is where I deviate from what is, in general, a fairly natural look — I like a smoky eye, what can I say? I usually do foundation, concealer, contouring/highlighting/blush, eyeshadow primer, 2-4 eyeshadows (generally all in the same color family), dark eyeliner on top (usually with an added swoop of dark black or dark navy shadow on top of the liner to set it), light eyeliner below my eye (taupey/fawn usually but maybe a faded gray/navy if I’m feeling like it) and usually a pretty neutral lip that somehow takes extra long to apply. I may do a mascara primer as well as mascara (sometimes even layers of different mascaras!), or I may do my One Two Cosmetics lashes. Sometimes I give my husband a choice re the general shadow look (“honey, pick brown, black, purple, or blue”) — sometimes I give my 7-year-old son the choice. I have fun with the date night/party makeup and it’s fun to see myself all dolled up — but it’s a TON more makeup than I normally wear and I worry it’s jarring to people who may, say, only know me a “no makeup/glasses” situation. I also keep collecting red lipsticks in the hope that one day I can get a great red lip with a more natural-but-polished eye look — but I have yet to find a comfortable lip that I can wear for hours without constant monitoring or regret — so I’m not there yet.

So let’s hear it, readers — what are your regular looks for office makeup, interview makeup, date night makeup, and weekend makeup? Do you have several makeup looks or just one for each situation? If you work from home regularly, do you wear makeup? How has your makeup changed as you got promoted, got married, had kids, or generally gotten older? (Are there any looks that you think are too “young” for older women, short of, say, Jem’s makeup?) If you occasionally wear glasses, how do you vary your makeup?

Stephen Colbert Has a Rally-Ready ‘Glimmery Shimmery’ Makeup Tutorial Just for Trump

If you’ve been wondering how to get the “hottest, most presidential highlights,” then Stephen Colbert has the perfect makeup tutorial for you.

In a clip dubbed “Stephen on the Floor” that aired during Monday’s episode of The Late Show, the host shared his take on how to get President Donald Trump’s look. “It’s glimmery, it’s shimmery, and it’s a fun and easy look you can take from golf to rally,” he began the YouTube channel parody.

Colbert then proceeded to smear bronzer and highlighter all over his face while wearing a pair of goggles to keep the area around his eyes as white and puffy as possible. He finished his full face of makeup by using a slice of bologna to blend everything together.

“I like to use Oscar Mayer chicken and pork,” he explained. “The rendered fat really seals in your highlights so now your look holds up to a sweaty, panicked denial of guilt.”
