Before you visit your makeup artist for a trial, always walk with pictures to show the makeup you like. Download images of the makeup you love and even of the ones you don’t love. This research is key to the success of your bridal trial as in most cases a makeup artist may not perceive what you had in mind or described, especially if you don’t normally wear makeup. Also, share your concerns with your artist. Do you perspire excessively? Do you have oily or dry skin? Do you think you will be teary eyed on your day? A professional makeup-artist should be able to guide you on the best makeup look and approach. Communication manages expectation.
