Sev specializes in event and special-effects makeup and has a client list that ranges from Cosplay fans to blushing brides. I've asked her to share her expertise for finding the perfect wedding-day look in this five-part series, Makeup Your Photography.
You wouldn’t purchase your wedding cake without trying a sample. So why book a makeup artist without scheduling a trial test? I recommend scheduling a trial to test your look on a day that you’ll be out with friends. By gauging people’s reactions, you’ll know if your look is spot on, or if you’ll need to do some refining.
Finding an artist that fits your style and can match your vision can sometimes be challenging, so I recommend doing a trial with a few artists — if your finances allow. Trials are around $50 per session, but it's worth the investment.
Oh, and don’t ask your guy friends’ opinions of the makeup. They won’t know any better.
