Start each interview by talking about how much experience the artist has applying makeup and specifically makeup for weddings. Take a look at their portfolio and evaluate if you like the skills level that you see. Are they willing to do a trial? We like this idea because it give you an idea of whether the artist is going to be able to give you exactly what you are looking for. What kind of makeup do they use? Make sure it is theatrical grade. Not only will this look best in your photographs but it also will give you the best look in artificial lighting. Are they willing to stay with you until your reception starts in order to give you a touch up? How much will their services cost you? Why did they become a makeup artist? How many brides have they worked on? Make sure that you get references and contact each one to receive an honest evaluation of the vendor. Talk a bit about the logistics. Will you have to drive to their location or will they come to your wedding location? Once you have all of the information you are seeking, you will be in a much better position to decide which makeup artist fits you best.
