What to Expect From a Pro Makeup Appointment, According to the Experts
Don't let Instagram fool you: some (aka most) of us haven't mastered the art of full glam yet. Swiping, blending, and contouring to perfection is an art form that can take years to master. If you're not quite there — or just don't need those skills for your everyday beauty looks — no worries. That's what the pros are for.
Much like a refreshing facial or zen massage, booking a professional makeup appointment can be an amazing way to treat yourself for special occasions. (Or just because you feel like it.) With formal and wedding seasons officially on the horizon, now is a good time to start considering your options.
Whether it'll be your first time sitting in an artist's chair or you have a few appointments under your belt, there's no such thing as being too prepared. In fact, knowing exactly what to expect can help the process run smoothly and create the best possible relationship (and result, of course) between you and your MUA.
To help break it all down, we tapped Lauren Serra, a senior makeup artist at Blushington. Working at a popular destination for prom and special-event makeup, plus a variety of other beauty services, she's seen and experienced it all. Keep reading as she shares what to expect during your appointment, including prep, tipping etiquette, and more.
