Shopping around for the perfect wedding day vendors in the lead up to your big day is half the fun and selecting the perfect makeup artist is no exception. Finding the one that's right for you may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn't have to be! That's why we've put together a handy guide to help you on your quest for a makeup artist on the Gold Coast.

Sunny Queensland, home to some of Australia's sandiest beaches, hottest theme parks and luxurious resorts, is also ripe with talented professionals that are all well-equipped to take you on your once-in-a-life-time-journey from Miss to Mrs.

The Gold Coast has a lot of talented makeup artists, so how do you choose? Our number one piece of advice is to let their work speak for itself. We all have our own unique beauty styles, so one of the most important considerations in narrowing down your search, is finding the artist that can reflect your personal style in their work.

You want a someone who's adaptable, easy to work with and will listen to what you want. Good makeup application comes from understanding individual skin tones and types; therefore you need someone who knows their craft.

To begin with, make a checklist. What's important to you? And what do you want out of a the person doing your makeup? For example, do you want;

  • A Flawless finish.
  • Makeup that looks perfect on camera and off.
  • A look that enhances your natural beauty.
  • Do you want makeup that's classic, vintage, edgy, bold, or simple?
  • How much are you willing to spend?
  • Which artists service your area or are willing to travel to you or your venue?
  • Do you get along with them? This person needs to understand your vision and be willing to work with you to achieve it.

You should always meet with potential vendors face-to-face, it's the only way you'll be able to tell if they're a good fit for you. This not only gives you an opportunity to see if you get along with them, but for them to meet you and see how they could work with you. Talking with you over the phone doesn't give them a chance to see what they could potentially do to enhance your look, when they see you close up they can run over different options for a flawless finish that's uniquely yours.
