Today is our final day of our interview with Bridal Makeup Artist Brittany Nicole. It was so much fun working with her on this specific project and the results show for themselves. Every bride can learn from these questions so enjoy!
Holly Ann: What are some questions you wish brides would ask you about makeup?
Brittany Nicole: Q) When should I book you as my MUA (make-up artist) for my Wedding?
A) At least 4-5 months before your Wedding. I've noticed that finding a MUA isn't a huge priority like finding a hairstylist. I wish brides knew that booking your makeup artist in advance like your hairstylist is imperative. Most MUA's are freelancers and do not do makeup full-time; booking ahead gives the MUA time to request off work, its also gives you the option of doing a bridal consultation (when you can ask your MUA all the questions you may have about makeup) and lastly your MUA can go over their needs (i.e. location, the space we need for makeup application and time we need for you and each bridesmaids)
Other questions I wish brides would ask:
Do you charge for travel? Should I come with a clean face? When should we do the bridal consultation? Are you familiar with my skin type? Should I add more time for touch-ups? Do you offer a bridal package? What method of payment do you accept?
Holly Ann: What is your favorite part about working with brides on their special day?
Brittany Nicole: My favorite part would be feeling appreciated for my work! There's is nothing more gratifying then seeing my bride look into the mirror at her complete makeup look and smile!
Holly Ann: Where would you recommend brides look for makeup styles?
Brittany Nicole: I'm a self-taught MUA and I do a lot of web surfing to gain more knowledge about my craft. Check out Google, Pintrest, Instagram, Youtube and also bridal magazines and beauty blogs.
Holly Ann: What do you listen to while doing the brides makeup?
Brittany Nicole: Anything that's upbeat! Most of the time I let the bride choose what to listen to!
Holly Ann: Would you be willing to share a fun fact about yourself?
Brittany Nicole: Well, I'm a military brat! My father was in the Army; and I grew up overseas in Germany until I was 14 years old.
