Go for A Demo
Before you finalize your decision about hiring a particular professional makeup artist, you are encouraged to do a trial or demo makeup appointment with him/her. This is for you to have a preview of what you will look like, if you like it then you hire her but if not, you can go for another expert makeup artist. I recommend that when deciding on who to choose for your demo, have at least three options. Though, most professional artist charge a fee for a makeup demo, the money you will pay is insignificant compared with the peace of mind knowing that you have a makeup artist that you love. A plus of course is that you are able to connect with them and sample their work first hand before making a final decision.
During a demo, the artist will determine the nature of your face and personality in order to know how bold or soft your makeup should be. In addition, he/she will take notes and keep proper records of all the items used for your demo so that during the “day of” he/she is prepared and confident in what you do and do not like.
