As a professional makeup artist of six years, I have used my magic wands and products to glamourise too many beautiful faces to count. Having your makeup done professionally used to be reserved only for weddings, photoshoots or the rich and famous. Fast forward to 2016 and makeup artists are on call for just about any special occasion.
Many new clients of mean feel quite overwhelmed about the process and about makeup itself. Here are a couple of things I’d like to put your mind at ease about.
1. Don’t be self-conscious about your perceived imperfections.
I’ve lost count of how many clients have apologised to me for their “small lips” or the “pimple that just popped up this morning”. Please, please, PLEASE don’t be sorry! The majority of the time we are probably more concerned about what you are thinking about us.
I can assure you I am more worried about you noticing my chipped nail polish (so unprofessional). It is our job to make you feel incredible, the last thing we would ever want to do is make you feel uncomfortable. And those “imperfections”? They’re actually quite beautiful.
