I, along with many other makeup artists, offer my clients the option of doing touch-ups. This is basically staying behind for their photos (if it’s a wedding) to make sure, with everything going on, that makeup stays in place. Whether it’s dabbing or powdering a little unwanted shine, fix a little smudge from a tear that escaped or reapplying lipstick that may have disappeared with some lovings for the camera.
I’ve got the memory of an elephant, sometimes a good thing but not always. Anyways, I digress. It’s also stuck with me from studying that applying makeup is only a small percentage of being a makeup artist. The remainder is maintaining it. Hence why I offer this option.
And even though I get the spend the majority of the day with my clients, staying behind for extra time and doing touchups let’s me share in little moments. Whether it’s holding or distracting/ entertaining little ones or sharing in a good laugh. It’s pretty special. Plus makeup stays on point. 😉
However, sometimes clients prefer to do it themselves. So make sure to have your powders, including blush, your blotting paper and lipsticks handy to do some touching up. X
