      I booked Rajeshwari ma'am for my baby shower. She came on time and was very calm and extremely professional throughout. She made sure I was comfortable by showing me the mirror in each step of the make up and was open in getting suggestions from me as well. She also managed to take sometime and did makeup for my husband on request, She did a wonderful job and made us look stunning. We got compliments from everyone. It's customary to apply sandal paste on the cheeks for a baby shower. Despite that her make up stayed!! She make me look so gorgeous that I didn't feel like taking the makeup off even after the event got over. Would definitely recommend 10/10.😍😍👏

      I was very happy and satisfied with their services. I hired them for my wedding and took the entire package of makeup, hair and draping. The makeup artist did the job wonderfully and I was content with the final look. Their pricing was reasonable according to the quality of their work. I would give them a 9 out of 10 and would surely recommend them further. Would love to avail their service again in future for other events.

Hiring Guidefor Bridal Makeup Artists

How To Look For The Best Makeup Artist in Chennai

While looking for bridal makeup artists in Chennai, you would usually Google for ‘beautician for bridal makeup in Chennai’, ‘best makeup artist in Chennai’, and ‘makeup artist home service in Chennai’. You should find out if the makeup artist provides services in Chennai at homes and after that, you can remove the ones on the list who will not be available on the day of your wedding functions. Below we have provided some ways on narrowing down on your search to find a suitable professional MUA (makeup artist) in Chennai:

  • Assess the portfolio carefully: Makeup artists generally put their works on the social network or their websites and you may even like some of them. However, it is essential to ask for their portfolios. You must check how diversified their works are, which can range from bold makeups to simple and natural looking ones. If their bridal makeup works have variety, you would know that they worked with different style choices of their clients and also the unique colours and types of skin. So, you can go for a completely customised makeup look on your wedding. You will also get a general view of their own style choice by checking their portfolios that will let you choose accordingly whether it’s heavy or simple makeup looks.

  • Enquire if they are booked on your wedding dates: If the makeup artist is booked during your wedding, make sure the MUA has enough time to travel between different appointments and also for any unforeseen delays. Hurrying the MUA through the makeup is not a good idea.

Finalising on one after narrowing down to 2-3 makeup artists for weddings

After you found a few good artists, you should talk to them over the phone and check if they are available on all of your wedding function dates that include the wedding, reception, and sangeet, among others. If they are unoccupied during your wedding, ask them what types of makeup and product brands they professionally work with.

Different makeup types

Traditional, HD, and Airbrush makeups are the three main types. Traditional and HD are two different types of products and airbrushing is a method.

What is traditional makeup?

Traditional makeup is the most commonly used makeup on brides and your MUA (makeup artist) must have high-quality traditional makeup products.

  • It is highly versatile to go with almost all skin types and occasions. Also, any method ranging from brush, fingers, and sponge, among others, can be used.

  • Although most of the traditional makeup products are not waterproof, they are used for giving one a heavy coverage or a sheer makeup look.

  • Traditional makeup entirely depends on the MUA’s expertise and skill to give you a better result. The issue could be with your problematic skin where the MUA would have to put more makeup to hide those uneven areas, as they would show up on cameras.

What is HD Makeup?

This type of makeup is suitable for HD cameras as they can expose the flaws of a problematic skin even after makeup. You will get a faultless makeup look as the HD makeup products have more ingredients.

  • HD makeup, in general, is liquid and compared to traditional makeup it has more sheerness. It provides one with high coverage once applied and has a natural appeal so that you look great in photos.

What is Airbrush Makeup?

The airbrush method is a makeup technique that is applied on your skin with a spray gun.

  • This makeup offers a uniform layer and the finish is quite skin-like. Your actual skin colour appears with the fine mist over your skin. This makeup technique will not have a mask-like effect at all.

  • It is waterproof and lasts until 16 hours. However, it is advised that you should dab your tears and sweat, never wipe them.

  • The major benefit of this technique is the oxidation with air when the foundation is sprayed from the gun. You would notice the real colour of the foundation on your face immediately when it is applied. On the other hand, it requires about 15-20 minutes to show up with the other makeup applications.

  • This makeup technique is very precise. The makeup artist can move to the bumpy skin areas with no trouble. You will find lots of disagreeing beliefs but it quite good for people with uneven skin. The MUA has control over how much makeup can be applied on the uneven areas. It is more translucent but on high-definition cameras, the uneven areas look better than the mask-like effect of other makeups.

  • This technique makes the makeup blend naturally with any type of face.

Costs of hiring a bridal makeup artist in Chennai

There are airbrush makeup artists in Chennai who offer their services at affordable rates and don’t compromise on the quality. Some professional makeup artists provide their bridal makeup services that range from Rs. 8,000 – Rs. 30,000. Brides with a small budget can easily choose depending on their budget and choice. These are the standard rates of UrbanClap’s professional makeup artists in Chennai:

  • The makeup costs for the main wedding function would be more than the costs for the other functions, such as sangeet, reception, and mehndi, among others.

  • One gets a discount on the overall price if the bride books just one MUA for the different events.

  • The bride is required to pay for the travel and accommodation expenses if the MUA has to travel to another city.

What is included in the bridal makeup?

  • Makeup.

  • Hairstyling.

  • Draping of saree or dupatta.

  • Nails (basic nail paint; you should get any nail art done independently ahead of time).

The makeup trials

You must take a session at least a month before your wedding, ideally. You can judge the proficiency of the makeup artist with the trial session and also decide on any changes that you want for your main wedding day. You should by no means hire any MUA who is reluctant to book a trial session with you or who is unwilling to show the rates for the services for bridal makeup.

What happens at a makeup trial?

Preferably, you must have a detailed conversation with your MUA on what makeup you would want for your wedding and also provide some photos for reference. Also, show the MUA the pictures of your wedding dresses so that the MUA can have a better idea of creating a balanced look. Question her about the products she uses, and which ones would match your skin type. Talk about what eyelash and hair extensions you prefer and any doubts you have. Once you have spoken and become comfortable with what the MUA is planning to do with your makeup look, let the session begin and examine what she does and listen to everything she says diligently.

Are the trial sessions paid or free?

Most likely, you would have to pay for a bridal makeup trial session. If you are going to book the same MUA for your wedding, all the payments would be adjusted into the final payment.

  • Full-face trial: You would be shown a complete makeup look that would not be as perfectly done for the actual day of the wedding. It is just to give you a simple idea and it would cost around Rs. 1500.

  • Half-face trial: The makeup artist puts the makeup on just one of the sides of your face and you can see and compare. The makeup artist can also put an airbrush makeup on one side and traditional makeup on the other, or just put different eye makeups on each eye.

What if I can’t travel to the MUA’s city for the trial?

You should request a relative or a close friend to take over the session and remember to share some notes on what you expect from the makeup artist. You should also do a video chat with the MUA once the trial is over to talk about the details. This would give you a better idea of what suits you better.

What are the criteria to assess my makeup during the trial?

  • The MUA should put makeup depending on your type of skin. For instance, oily skin requires a matt finish foundation.

  • Look for hard lines in your makeup. The blush, contour, eye makeup, and foundation must fuse properly.

  • The base must look natural, like a second skin effect.

  • Too much blush on your cheeks must be avoided, as they tend to look flashy.

  • Check how you look with the makeup by clicking your photos in natural and artificial lights. Notice whether the foundation has the same colour as your skin, if your acne marks and blemishes have been hidden away and if the dark circles have been aptly reduced. Dark circles should not be covered completely as you may look quite unnatural.

  • Check how long the makeup would last and how well it goes with your skin type.

What other factors to consider before hiring a Makeup Artist -

  • Only ask related questions- Connect with MUAs in Chennai and enquire the sorts of product they use. It is essential to know the type of products if have a sensitive skin or particular ingredients make you allergic. Enquire about the costs of bridal makeup services in Chennai to get a comprehensive sense of the amount you would be spending. If they are offering services at lower rates, ask what products they use and how they maintain quality. You should not decide on hiring a makeup artist due to the low price range. You can find a good balance with the makeup cost and good quality.

  • Question their hygiene practices: Makeup artists keep their kits ordered and clean. They should have better habits of hygiene and keeping makeup products in clean conditions. They should use disposable mascara wands, washed makeup sponges, clean brushes, mixing palette for products and also must sterilise their makeup products regularly. You should never hire a makeup artist if she/he keeps the makeup kit messy and unclean. A makeup artist is also required to know where every product is placed in the kit. If an MUA does not have these basic requirements and offers you services at lower prices, don’t hire them.

  • Share your vision and assess their reactions: While some brides favour a simple makeup look, others want to get a bold one. Ensure the bridal MUA understands your preferences. Share photos that encouraged you to go for a look on your wedding day and ask them to give their ideas on what they think would look best on you. Never book an MUA if she/he is not attentive to what you say or pressing his/her views on you.

Things that you should keep in mind before finalising on the MUA

  • Enquire the payment terms on how much advance you should pay along with the payment mode and cancellation policy, among others.

  • Ask how many people the MUA would bring along so that you can provide space for them as well.

  • If you book one MUA for all the wedding functions, you would get a bulk discount and be more comfortable to talk to your MUA with each passing function. For instance, if your eye makeup was excessive on the sangeet, you could tell the MUA to make it moderate on the wedding day.

  • For applying makeup to your relatives and friends during the wedding, we advise that you hire an additional MUA. The bridal MUA would not have time to put makeup on anyone else apart from the bride. You could request your MUA to get some other makeup artists as well.

Pre-Bridal Treatments (Skin & Hair Care)

Asking your bridal MUA for any treatments before the wedding would be beneficial. As she knows the type of skin and hair you have, she could suggest you what needs to be done. For instance, if you have dry skin, a hydrating facial would be suitable. Or, if you just need to remove blackheads, the MUA would ask you to do a basic clean-up.

The best time for the final session is

  • Since makeup shouldn’t be put immediately after a facial, the facial should be done 48 hours before the function.

  • Waxing and threading must be done 24 hours prior to the first function as it takes time for the redness to settle down.
