When you're in the market for a makeup artist, don't make the mistake of picking a "one-trick pony" like those who appear on the local news or the internet. Just because they're one of those celebrities who can barely get out of their car without leaving a red face, doesn't mean they are the right choice for you. Here are five tips to help you choose a makeup artist who will help your wedding and reception looks.

Interview Them - Like most people, most makeup artists are eager to help you look beautiful, so get them a little bit more than an interview. Ask them questions about their backgrounds, their interests, what they do, and how they handle different clients. All of these can help you decide if they are a good fit for your needs.

Be Honest About the Reason You Want a Makeup Artist - People tend to make the mistake of interviewing someone only to find out later that they don't have enough money to hire them. No matter how beautiful you are, if you don't have the money to pay for them, they won't be able to help you. And then you're stuck with having a bad, unprofessional look at your reception. Use this as an opportunity to explain why you want them, and why you're willing to spend more than you think.

Have Your Interviews Recorded - Most makeup artists can't do what they do because they don't do it every day. But there are still plenty of reasons you can use to avoid booking them if you interview them over the phone or through email. Plus, you can save yourself from wondering whether you're being recorded while they're still doing the makeup.

Ask Other People to Review Your Profile - While I wouldn't recommend anyone to let their friends review their entire profile (it's none of their business) if you can talk to other people and give them a candid review of their experiences with the makeup artist you're considering, it'll help you decide whether or not you'd feel comfortable hiring them. Just be sure you know their names. Otherwise, you might end up getting someone you already know.

Has Extra Time With Them - Makeup artists have a lot of research to do before they start doing any makeup. You can cut down on some of that by having some extra time with them, even if it's just two to three hours. This can give you the chance to get to know them a little better and to determine if they are the right fit for your needs.

These five tips will help you choose a makeup artist in Singapore who will help you look your best. They won't be the only people you should talk to, but they are the ones you'll want to discuss it with. If you follow these tips, you'll be well on your way to finding the makeup artist you want.
