A few of the services are basic which all makeup artists provide and some offer additional services as mentioned below: 

1. Bridal Makeup: If not anything then bridal makeup service is the most given service by all makeup artists. Several makeup techniques matter, like which artist provides the best looks or what all kinds of makeup techniques the artist is good at or offers to their clients. The years of experience will only add positive aspects to their profile and also gives a possibility of experimenting with multiple looks. 

2. Party Makeup: This is a very basic service provided by almost all makeup artists for a regular party or event. The party look doesn't need to be very experimental or use a lot of products. The basic makeup products like foundation, blush, kohl, and lip color, that's it! But your makeup artist adds magic which makes this simple look exemplary.

3. Pre-bridal Services: It includes many services like manicures, pedicures, facials, hair cut, spas, massages, body wax, body polishing, etc. Many times, not every makeup artist provides this service but they do come under compulsory and must-have service so you can ask the artist before booking them.

4. Hairstyling: Sometimes the artist likes to pass this service as hairstyling is altogether a different art or profession. It is a part of the bridal look, but at times there are professionals who are only experienced in doing hairstyles and offer these services individually. It demands creativity and tactics to manage several lengths of hair.

Things to Remember While Hiring a Makeup Artist

No matter how much you research or have cross-checked facts about the makeup artist, there are still some basic things that one must remember while booking a makeup artist for their wedding. As it's difficult to cancel the booking once you have paid the advance and the well-known artists are booked months in advance so you won't be left with a lot of choices later. 

1. Budget: Make sure you have a clear idea of what your makeup artist is going to charge you for the services before making a final booking. It must fall under your decided budget, otherwise, it will affect your entire wedding budget. 

2. Bridal Look: How do you want your bridal look? You must share your clear vision with the makeup artist and ask as many questions as possible to see if he/she can create the look that you have envisioned for your special day. If not, then you still have a chance to continue with your search, rather than being disappointed on your wedding day. 

3. Availability: We know the wedding season is always busy for renowned and skilled makeup artists, thus it would be smart to ask for availability first and then book the artist at the earliest if you are sure they will be able to bring out your bridal vision to life.

What to discuss with your Makeup Artist?

We suggest you discuss with them whatever comes to your mind regarding your bridal makeup without any hesitation. You won't get this opportunity later when you have already booked your artist, so it's wise to discuss important things in advance such as:  

1. Bridal Look: Share your bridal vision, why you want that particular look, what's the idea behind it, etcetera, everything should be discussed with the artist so that he/she can help you in creating what you want. 

2. Extra hands for the family: If you want to book the same artist for your friends or family, make sure to ask your artist if they have an additional team that can help them get ready. How many people would be there in total? How much would the artist charge extra or if there is any discount being offered? It is better to ask these questions before the booking to avoid any chaos later.

3. How to prepare the skin: The texture of the skin varies in every season and for every bride. For instance: if it's the winter or fall wedding, then it could be dry or if it's summer, then it could be rough or oily. Therefore the bride needs to prepare her skin well in advance. The proper care and skin regime can make you look naturally flawless and that's what any experienced makeup artist can suggest by carefully examining your skin. We suggest you follow rigorously whatever your makeup artist tells you, whether it's having proper meals or avoiding any particular product on your skin.

Why Hire the Best Bridal Makeup Artist in Chicago?

Your wedding photos, videos, and reels depend on how you look on your wedding day. Whether you are a minimal bride or like to go all out and about with heavy makeup, choosing the best makeup artist who understands your vision can guarantee you a perfect look.

Mistakes to avoid while hiring Bridal Makeup Artists in Chicago

There are certain questions that come across your mind while speaking to your makeup artist just before booking them for your wedding day. While we suggest you ask as many questions as possible to avoid any misunderstanding at a later suggest, but there are a few things that you must avoid asking your artist, such as: 

1. Bargaining: Asking if they offer any complimentary services are fine, but bargaining with them is not really a great thing. If you find their prices high or it's exceeding your budget, you can simply tell them and say thank you for their time, rather than bargaining with them. 

2. Asking questions without knowing their work: There are a number of things that you have to manage while prepping for the big day, and sometimes you forget to do the most important and common work to do, like, checking the profile of a makeup artist thoroughly before speaking to them or booking them. This can lead to asking wrong or unusual questions. 

3. Makeup Trial: Not taking the trial when you are unsure about the artists is a big mistake that many clients make. Trails are very important for many reasons - you get to know the artist better, get an idea of your bridal look, and you have an opportunity to make amendments in your bridal look if you feel the current look is not how you imagined it to be. You can also maybe go with another artist if you are not very much satisfied with him/her. This is a great opportunity and one must use it wisely, rather than being disappointed with your look later. 

Makeup Artists in Chiago with Prices

The types of service, products, location, and season of the wedding also affect the prices. But on average, a South Asian makeup artist in Chicago charges between $250to$1000. This is a tentative amount, but you can confirm with your artist before booking them for your big wedding.
