      I am very much satisfied with her work. She is just awesome...her skills, behaviour, sincerity everything was excellent. The most important thing was that she valued my opinions during the make up session rather than imposing her own ideas and guided me accordingly...i would recommend her as she is awesome, friendly, understanding, sincere and excellent make up artist.

      I wanted a natural look for a Ladies' Sangeet function for which I hired Ranjeeta from UrbanClap. I was so happy that I chose her, she is one of the best makeup artists I've met. She was so sweet and cordial. She was punctual and finished the makeup before time. Throughout the process, she was calm and nice and I loved her instantly. She succeeded in giving me the natural look I wanted and I paid her Rs.1600 for her services. I would give her a 10 on 10 and would most definitely hire her sometime again in the future. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

Hiring Guidefor Bridal Makeup Artists

How To Find The Best Makeup Artist in Kolkata

Once you have decided about making a list of bridal makeup artists in Kolkata, you would search for them on the web by looking for ‘makeup artist home service in Kolkata’, ‘best makeup artist in Kolkata’, and ‘beautician for bridal makeup in Kolkata’. What you have to keep in mind is that whether the professionals are available on the function dates of your wedding. If some are not, then you can remove the ones from the long list you have made. Here are a few ways in narrowing down your search to look for the right makeup artist in the city:

  • Check their portfolio properly: Makeup artists tend to share their works on various social platforms or personal websites. You should ask their portfolios first and check for the range of makeup looks they can create. If you like their work, but each makeup has the same pattern, then don’t book him/her. A trained professional artist knows how to work with many skin and colour types and knows how to operate according to the bride’s choice of style. This would allow you to get a look according to your personal preference. Checking portfolios of makeup artists give you a basic sense of what they are good at and prefer. You can sense if the makeup artist likes heavy or simple eye makeup.

  • If they have bookings during your wedding: If they are booked during your wedding function dates, but can also make it to your wedding, just check if the artist has adequate time for travelling and also keeping the unpredicted delays in mind. The MUA (makeup artist) should not be rushing through applying makeup on your busy wedding day.

I’ve found 2-3 bridal makeup artists in Kolkata but how do I finalise one?

As soon as you have found some makeup artists in the city to your liking, give them a call and ask if they would be free during your wedding functions, such as reception, sangeet, wedding, etc. Also, ask the kind of makeup brands and products they would use professionally.

Types of Makeup

There are three types of makeups - airbrush, HD, and traditional. HD and traditional are types of makeup products, and airbrush is a makeup technique.

What is traditional makeup?

It is a very common makeup used on brides and has been there for several decades. The MUA who uses traditional makeup will have a professional line of products.

  • This type of makeup is adaptable to most occasions and types of skin, and methods such as fingers, brush, sponges, etc., can be easily used.

  • This makeup gives a heavy coverage and a sheer look. However, most of these products are not waterproof.

  • While many are concerned about traditional makeup, if the MUA you hired is professional, you don’t have to worry as the results would be good. But, traditional makeup may show on camera if you have uneven skin, as the makeup artist will have to use more products to conceal the problematic parts.

What is HD Makeup?

HD makeup is primarily used if you have problematic skin as the technique will give you a spotless finish even when seen through a high definition camera. High-resolution cameras can uncover the imperfections of problematic skin easily.

  • HD makeup is liquid and sheer than the traditional one. On application, it offers high coverage. With this makeup, you would look great in photographs.

What is Airbrush Makeup?

The airbrush makeup method involves a spray gun.

  • The technique makes the makeup appear as a thin and even layer giving it a skin-like finish.

  • It is advised that you do not wipe your tears and sweat but dab them. It can last up to 16 hours.

  • After the foundation is sprayed out of the gun, it oxidises with the air. Once it is on your skin, you can see the changes immediately. This is one of the biggest advantages of this method, as it takes up to 15-20 minutes to appear with the other makeup types.

  • Airbrush is a precise and better technique, especially, for those who have uneven skin. The MUA can control the amount of makeup that is applied to the rough regions and also can move in and out without difficulty. Moreover, the uneven regions of your face would not have the cakey effect when seen through HD cameras.

  • This makeup blends well with your skin naturally.

Hiring costs of a bridal makeup artist in Kolkata

Brides with small budgets can look for airbrush makeup artists in Kolkata who offer bridal makeup services that are reasonably priced but don’t compromise on the quality. Professional makeup artists provide bridal makeup services in the city that range between Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 30,000 and one can conveniently choose according to her choice and budget. Below are the standard prices that professional makeup artists from UrbanClap charge:

  • The makeup cost for the wedding day is higher than the cost for the sangeet, mehndi, and reception.

  • There would be a discount on the overall rate if the same MUA is hired for the multiple wedding events.

  • The accommodation and travel expenses should be taken care of by the bride if the MUA has to travel to another city.

What does a Bridal Makeup include?

  • Makeup.

  • Hairstyling.

  • Draping of saree or dupatta.

  • Nails (you will get a basic nail paint; for nail art, you would need to get them done beforehand independently).

Makeup Trials

A trial session is important, and it should be done a month prior to your wedding day. It will not only allow you to evaluate your MUA’s work, but it will also make it easier to get the makeup changed for your wedding if you didn’t like what you had thought earlier. Don’t book if the MUA does not offer a trial session or unwilling to sharing the list of the services and rates.

What happens at a makeup trial?

You must speak to our MUA about your preferences and even show her some photos as a reference. If the wedding dresses have been confirmed, show the photos so that MUA can create the makeup look that would complement the outfits. Enquire about the types of products that the makeup artist uses and what she thinks would complement the type of skin you have. Also, discuss any makeup related concerns that you might have such as hair and eyelash extensions, among others. Once you are contented with what the bridal makeup artist would do, just let the trial session begin, notice what she does and pay attention to what she says judiciously.

Are they paid or free?

Bridal makeup trials are generally paid. The payments are adjusted with the final amount if you will hire the same MUA for your wedding.

  • Full-face trial: The MUA would show you how the makeup would look on your wedding but that wouldn’t be done to perfection. A full-face trial would cost around Rs. 1500.

  • Half-face trial: The makeup is applied on just one side of your face so that you can compare it with how you usually look. An MUA can also apply two separate eye makeups or can put traditional makeup on one part of your face and airbrush makeup on the other.

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

You can always ask a dependable friend or a relative to take the trial session instead of you. Whatever you are expecting from the MUA, share some comprehensive notes with your friend who goes on your behalf. Do have a video chat with the makeup artist for the other details so that you get a sense of how the makeup look with go with you.

On what criteria should I judge my makeup at the trial?

  • Makeup should be applied according to the type of skin you have. For instance, if you have an oily skin, a mattifying foundation is needed. Your MUA should know this.

  • You need to check if any rough lines are appearing after the makeup has been applied. The foundation, blush, contour, and eye makeup must mix properly without any problem.

  • The base has to appear natural as if it is your second skin.

  • Excessive amounts of blush on the cheeks can make you look brash, that’s why, it is good to keep it in lesser amounts.

  • See how your photos look under natural and artificial lights after you have applied makeup. The foundation should exactly match your skin colour and the MUA should cover the acne marks and blemishes. Also, check if the dark circles are not completely hidden as it can look unusual.

  • It is essential to take into account how long would the makeup last.

What other factors to consider before booking a Makeup Artist

  • Just ask the important questions: Before hiring a makeup artist in Kolkata, you should connect with several makeup artists and enquire the products they would be using. It is important if you have a sensitive skin type or allergic to some ingredients used in the makeup. You should ask them the makeup costs in Kolkata for weddings so that you have a general sense of the price range. You should never make your decision on hiring an MUA who offers low costs for the makeup services and even if they are, enquire how they can maintain the quality and what kind of products they professionally use. You should look for the middle ground between quality and the cost.

  • Check on their practices of hygiene: Any good professional makeup artist follows good hygiene habits and keeps his/her makeup kits and products in an orderly manner and right sanitary conditions. They need to use dirt free brushes, disposable mascara wands, clean makeup sponges, mixing palette for products. They should not only disinfect makeup on a frequent basis. They should also know where each product is kept in the kit. Don’t hire a makeup artist who keeps his/her makeup kit disorganised and in unsanitary conditions and offers you his/her service at a low price rate.

  • Express your preferences and see how they react: If you want to go for a makeup look that is bold or a simple one, see if the MUA understands your style choices. If you can, show photos of makeup looks that inspired you from the web. Ask for suggestions so that the MUA can give you the best makeup look you want. Professional makeup artists are always attentive to their clients’ choices. The makeup artist you are thinking of booking is not fulfilling these requisites, don’t hire him/her.

Things to keep in mind when finalising the MUA for your wedding

  • Enquire when and how much advance you should pay along with the cancellation policy and the payment mode.

  • Enquire the number of people the MUA would bring along so that you know how much space would be required.

  • By booking just one makeup artist for all the functions of your wedding, you will a lot save. You can also tell your MUA to make some small changes to your makeup with each wedding event.

  • For applying makeup to your friends and relatives during your wedding, you must book a different MUA as the bridal MUA will be caught up with your makeup. You should ask the bridal makeup artist to bring along some other makeup artists.

Pre-Bridal Treatments (Skin & Hair Care)

Ask the makeup artist what treatments are needed preceding the wedding functions because the MUA knows your hair and skin type. She/he can suggest you what would be required. For instance, a hydrating facial would be needed when you have dry skin or you would need a simple clean up if you want to get the blackheads removed. The right timing for the final session is

  • A facial is required 48 hours before the first function and it should not be applied right after the facial.

  • Waxing and threading should be done 24 hours before the function, as the skin’s redness must settle down.
