PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP ARTISTRY
F.requently A.sked Q.uestions
A professional Makeup Artist (MUA) is one who is trained to adequately execute the cosmetic enhancements and desires of the client they are working for. A Professional Makeup Artist should be trained to work on all sorts of skin tones, skin type, ages, as well as eye and facial shapes. Professional Makeup Artists are educated on sanitary cosmetics procedures, and practices them when working with clients. They also have a “kit” containing several cosmetic products, colors, textures, and tools that will accommodate anyone who books them. A Professional Makeup Artist takes their job and responsibilities seriously and does not treat their skills or interests as simply a “hobby.” Proficiency, as with any art form is subjective; however, the standard MUA is judged on the ability to display a face to its full potential as well as establish a working relationship with the person being worked on. A Professional MUA must also understand what kinds and amounts of makeup are appropriate for different people. For example, makeup that looks good on a nightclub bartender might be totally inappropriate on a business executive - even if the two are identical twins. Using a Professional Makeup Artist is extremely important if you want to achieve the best cosmetic makeover possible; as a Professional MUA will match each client with the right makeup using eye and lip colors to enrich your skin tone, foundation, powder, and/or concealer to hide any facial blemishes, and contour eyes and face for a perfectly symmetrical, polished look so that you can be ready for the camera on your special day.

Marilona Makeovers only offers professional makeup artistry services. Although some other beauticians may claim to offer both makeup artistry and hair styling services, it is hard for one person to accurately and efficiently divide their time between both therefore less clients may be able to be accommodated. As well, their training might focus on one or the other - either hair or makeup - and therefore the makeup may not look as good as the hair will, or vice versa. It is best, especially in the case of larger bridal parties, to have a Professional Hair Stylist work on one's hair while your Makeup Artist works on another's makeup, then have the clients swich off. This will save time and sometimes even money. Marilona Makeovers in trained in providing a beautiful, timely makeup application and that is our sole focus. Should you not have a hair stylist and need recommendations, I'd be happy to refer you to the talented hair stylists that I have had the pleasure of working with in the past.
Deciding on a Makeup Artist for your most special events is just as important as how you have your hair and the outfit you wear. Remember: communication and conformability are the keys! Professionalism speaks for itself and stands out. Pay attention to the amount of products they have to work with, their cleanliness, timeliness, and flexibility. The best Makeup Artist is the one who genuinely cares about your happiness and who takes the time to really listen and work with your needs.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but remember: a trained Makeup Artist is knows how to display the face at its full potential and has made this a career, not a hobby. If your friend or family member offers to do your makeup, allow them to, and see if it suits you. Compare their work to that of a trained Professional Makeup Artist and you should see a big difference as a Professional should be equipped with all the tools, cosmetics, and knowledge it takes to execute a beautiful, polished, timely makeover.
What's more, speaking from personal experience, there have been a couple of times I have worked with bridal parties and one bridesmaid out of the group decides she does not need a Professional MUA and applies her makeup herself on the wedding day. Not only did she and the others notice a big difference between the quality of her self-performed makeover compared to the ladies who had theirs professionally applied, but she didn’t give herself the opportunity to be pampered by a professional. She then asked, last minute, if I had time to do one last makeover – hers. Sometimes the Artist doesn’t have extra time allotted for last minute makeover request during a booking. Remember: when is comes to memorable, special events where you’ll have photos to look back upon, leave the makeup application to a professional.
A great Makeup Artist will be able to offer you several suggestions based on your skin tone, style, and personality. Start by looking in magazines, books, and online for faces with makeup that you like. This helps the Artist better visualize what you are hoping to achieve. Do not be afraid to be vocal with your Artist as it is all about you and your satisfaction. At the same time, be realistic, keep an open mind, and listen to the Makeup Artist’s advice as they are trained on the art of cosmetic enhancement. Make sure your Makeup Artist is all about YOU and sets aside enough time to try out different looks until you find the one that you both are pleased with.
Deciding on a Makeup Artist for your most special event is a big decision.

Marilona Makeovers has a proud reputation of outstanding makeup artistry! If you have a special event, such as prom, homecoming, a photo shoot, or just want to look extra beautiful during a night out on the town, please feel free to schedule a makeover appointment with me – without a consultation! For bigger events, such as Bridal Parties, an Initial Consultation is strongly recommended.
Marilona Makeovers promises that you will not only feel beautiful and pampered on your special day but that your makeup will last and extra long time as well! Your makeup application will include prepping the skin and priming the makeup to ensure it stays on for hours looking the same way it did right after your makeover was completed! The makeup that Marilona Makeovers will apply is not only hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, but they are long-wearing, water-ressistant, if not water-proof, formulas. Your eyes should last all day and night; however, you might have to "powder your nose" and face depending on how oily your skin naturally is and how shiny you become. You also might have to touch-up your lips as you eat, talk, kiss, and drink throughout your special event also. I would suggest to carry some pressed powder in the shade that is professionally recommended for you as well as the lip color you are using for the event for touch-ups; that is generally all you will need.
