7 Reasons To Hire A Professional Makeup Artist

Updated: Feb 22, 2018

Why hire a makeup artist? What's the benefit?

These are great questions to ask and defintely ones that we makeup artists hear often. In today's world where DIY is trending and Youtube tutorials are flourishing, it's no wonder why women are unsure why they should hire a stranger to do their makeup for their special event when they can google how to do a simple smokey eye in five minutes. However, a professional artist definitely has a lot to bring to the table!

As someone who loves Youtube and all of the great content it has to offer, I can understand why hiring a professional makeup artist might seem like too much money and effort. Today, I will explain the reasons why you should want to hire a professional makeup artist for your event! I have attempted to narrow this list down, but believe me, the list could go on and on!

That being said, here is a list of seven reasons as to why you should hire a professional makeup artist for your event.

1. Advanced product & tool knowledge

Most professional makeup artists have some prior education in makeup artistry. This means they have actually studied and practiced with a variety of products and tools even before becoming a professional. It also means that they know the right products and tools to use to create your best look!

2. Understanding Of how Makeup Translates On An HD Camera

The knowledge of how your makeup will translate to a camera is essential for any event where photos will be taken. No one wants to spend a large amount of money for a professional photographer and photos and then discover that your face is ten shades darker than the rest of your body (yikes)!

3. Full Professional Makeup Kit

This is one of the most important aspects to consider when deciding whether or not to hire a professional makeup artist. If you want great professional photos, you need a makeup artist with quality professional products. These products are made to be used for high quality film and photos so it's a must for your special event! Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words!

4. Educated In Specialized Techniques

Corrective makeup, makeup longevity, application of false lashes, mens grooming, and of course airbrush! These skills and more are what a professional artist has been trained to do. These techniques will boost your look to the next level!

5. Sanitation!

Dirty brushes just simply don't perform as well as clean brushes. Plus unclean product is a great way to spread germs and potentially experience acne or an eye infection. Professionals take your health seriously and always strive to provide you with the best experience possible.

6. Knowledge Of Makeup Applications For Various Skin Types

Oily, combination, dry, sensitive, and balanced, these are just a few of the skin types professional makeup artists work with on a regular basis. This type of experience is priceless! We have seen it all, and no matter what the case, a professional makeup artist will help you look and feel beautiful!

7. Custom Foundation Matching

This is a unique skill that makeup artists offer, and you will want to take advantage! Plus it's fun to watch the magic happen! It is our determination to find the perfect foundation for your skin tone and type. Your foundation will be seamless and result in gorgeous photos that you and your family will enjoy forever.

Professional makeup artist will provide you with a one of a kind experience that you won't want to miss out on! Now, sit back, relax and enjoy this experience with your friends and family!

All the best,
