1) Always go for a trial makeup before the big day to see if the makeup artist’s style works well for you.
2) If your wedding is not during an off-season, we recommend getting the artist booked at least 6 months before so there’s no room for error when the time comes.
3) For best results, speak to the artist freely about how you want your make-up to be done; features you want to work on the most and features which should go subtle. Understanding is the key, guys!
These were just the top five names that pop into my head when it comes to best makeup artists in India. Feel free to share with us your favourite hair and makeup artists of all time!
