More Makeup To Do’s

1. Clarify responsibilities of who’s bringing the eyelashes, bindi’s for your forehead and other items that day

2. Ask if they have earring backings – some makeup artists have ones that help alleviate the weight of earrings.

3. Take photos from the front and profile views, smiling, and other facial expressions with your and in various lighting – bright to dimmer so you can see what you will look like in various scenarios.

4. You/your coordinator should schedule a reminder to call the makeup artist 1 day before, to confirm that they have the address and are bringing the items you agreed on (eyelashes, forehead bindis, earring backings, lipstick, etc.)

5. This might seem obvious, but don’t forget to add the artist’s contact info in your phone!
