Be Comfortable

On your big day, sometimes, your makeup artist would suggest you to wear some falsies. These can be false eyelashes, false hair, etc. Whatever be it, if you are not comfortable with any of the tools/accessories/products used for makeup, you can always tell your makeup artist. After all, it is your day and your comfort, which is more important than anything else.

Plan It

Time is very important in completing a bridal makeup. Normally, it takes up to 2-3 hours to complete a bridal makeup. So, it is recommended to call at least 3 hours before you head for your makeup. Because you can always expect the last-minute changes on your lip colour or your eye makeup.

Keep References

Every bride-to-be must be aware of what exactly she wants on her big day. So, it is always important to keep some references in your phone, so that you can explain clearly on what your choice is to your makeup artist. If you are clear on your references, it will reduce the chances of any confusions between you and the makeup artist. Keep references on how you want your eyes, lips, whether the lip colour will suit your skin tone or not, etc.


A trial day on makeup before your wedding day is very important, as you don't want anything to go wrong on your big day. The main reason for this is the look that you have shortlisted might be different in real when you apply it than how it looks on phone. Therefore, a trial is very important in giving you and your makeup artist a clear idea on what exactly suits your skin and not. You can appoint a trial at least a month earlier before your wedding day.

Talk To Your Makeup Artist

If you are a person who has gone through or still has any skin-related issue, make sure that you talk it out to your makeup artist. According to that, he/she might suggest you some pre-wedding skin treatments or sessions. Or he/she might also suggest some makeup that will suit your skin type no matter whatever skin-related issues you have. So, clearly talking out all your skin problems to your makeup artist is very important, in order to avoid any complications.
