Maybe you’re attending a special event, like a wedding or birthday party? Or, maybe you’re getting professional photos taken of you? Whatever the case may be, you decided to order a full face of makeup services from a professional makeup technician. Ordering makeup services is not common, so you’re probably wondering, “Do I have to do anything to prepare for my services?”
The short answer – no, you don’t have to do anything. However, I would recommend that you do the following: Get your eyebrows done beforehand – If you’re planning on getting your makeup done, make sure your eyebrows are groomed and trimmed. In my opinion, if you’re eyebrows aren’t properly done your makeup won’t look as beautiful as it can be.
Do NOT wax or thread your face the day beforehand or the day of – When you remove the hair on your face, your skin is sensitive and more exposed. The pores are typically open for for one to two days, meaning your more prone to acne or a slight rash. If you’re planning on getting your makeup professionally done, don’t schedule your face waxing the day of, or the day before. Schedule it a week in advanced. If you wax your face the day of, then get your makeup done, you’re more likely to get a skin irritation or unwanted pimples…no one wants that!
Bring examples of what kind of makeup look you want – Don’t be afraid to bring examples of what type of look you’d want, your makeup artist will appreciate the suggestions. Don’t be shy, communicate with the makeup professional. Be open to trying new things – Even if you have an idea of what you want, try being open to new things. Maybe the makeup artist brought a new lipstick you’ve never tried, or maybe they want to put fake lashes on you even though you’ve never done that before. Be open to try it and their suggestions. You never know, you might find your new favorite item. If you’re searching for a makeup professional, try using the Mobile Styles app for an inexpensive, yet beautiful, look.
