The Art Behind The Makeup
The makeup artist is an expert on the application of beauty products. In a way, he or she has a ‘canvas’ to paint on (you), transforming you into a stunning painting. The trained professional will have a range of broad and special skills like airbrushing, high-definition makeup, special effects and the like.
A makeup artist – man or woman work with a variety of tools ranging from brushes to sponges, bases to concealers, lipsticks to eye shadows, highlighters to shimmers and so on. Though, what counts most is the talent behind the tools. And not everyone has the potential to work magic with even the best of tools, though some can create miracles out of the most ordinary products.
The artist may either be a part of a beauty salon or function from his/her own personal studio. Some freelance makeup experts are also available ‘on-call’. Though it’s best to plan ahead and get yourself a confirmed booking with a professional for your wedding day. You can even ask family and friends to recommend a tried and tested artist, known to make brides look stunning on their special days.
But it doesn’t just stop there. No, a good makeup expert will have a pleasing personality.

Qualities like reliability, knowledge, experience and confidence. These are essential to any make up expert.
