Organising a wedding is up there with the most stressful experiences you can go through. There are so many aspects to consider that it’s all too easy to get overwhelmed. Thankfully, there’s plenty of guidance available and amazing services that you can take advantage of to help things run as smoothly as possible. Over the next few months, we’ll be producing a series of blogs that will help you take care of your beauty and fashion needs for the big day. Today, we’re going to give you some advice on choosing your bridal makeup artist in Dubai.
Make room in the budget early on
There’s no denying that the women in Dubai and Abu Dhabi have some seriously impressive makeup skills. Because of this, a lot of women believe that they can save some money by doing their own wedding makeup. We might be slightly biased, but this is almost never a good idea. Dubai bridal makeup is not at all like your everyday look. There are a lot of additional factors like lighting, flash photography and even the effect of wearing your wedding gown that need to be taken into account.
A professional makeup artist in Dubai will be experienced and can work with you to create your dream look. Having someone else take care of it also means you have more time to relax while getting ready instead of rushing around on one of the most important days of your life! Early on in the planning process, make sure you allocate a portion of your budget so you’re able to hire a qualified makeup artist.
Create a shortlist
Ask friends and family, chat with your colleagues and do some serious internet research to create a list of potential makeup artists in Dubai. Personal recommendations are helpful but don’t be afraid to reach out to beauty salons you find online — you might just find your dream artist! Once you’ve got your names, start making calls and booking consultations.
To prepare for meetings, bring some pictures of the kind of look you’re going for. On the day, be sure to ask for examples of work they’ve done in the past and discuss your specific needs. For example, if you have especially sensitive skin the artist should be able to recommend some products that will prevent any reactions and may even be able to help you with advice for skin care leading up to the wedding. At this point you could also ask for references from previous clients.
Choosing the artist
As a general rule, there are three things you should be looking for; expertise, experience and a personality you really click with. By expertise, we mean an encyclopedic knowledge of all things beauty. He or she should be up to date with the trends, products and techniques that make for beautiful bridal makeup in Dubai. They should have multiple years of experience in wedding makeup artistry and have executed your type of look in the past. You’ll likely be spending quite a bit of time with your makeup artist, so having a personality you feel comfortable with is truly important. Being able to have fun with them is an amazing stress reliever and you’ll be grateful for the positive energy when it comes to the morning of your wedding!
Before you make your final commitment, you should do a trial run. Most reputable makeup artists in Dubai will charge for this, but it’s worth the investment to get the perfect wedding look. As soon you’ve made a decision, make your booking. The best European salons in Dubai tend to book up early, and you don’t want to be disappointed!
