I was wondering how you all felt abuot before and after pictures. The reason I ask is because I work as a makeup artist in the entertainment industry, but recently with the planning of my wedding I am really wanting to venture more into the bridal scene. Anyway, how would you feel if your picture was posted on your MUA’s website as before and after? ( and of course you were told it would be )
I have been hesitant to do that, I just feel like its invasive. However, I do feel that not doing so is going to maybe hurt me in this field. Do you look for before and afters on your makeup artist on just the final product?
What do you think?

I think if the bride agrees to it it’s a great idea. It makes it obvious how a good foundation & concealer can really make a difference, and how contouring, and different eye shadow techniques can really enhance your features. Just my opinion but I feel before and afters are very helpful 🙂

I think for you (not you personally but in general as a MUA ;)) it would be great. Its probably a case by case. Ask each client – maybe some will mind while others won’t. If I was your client I wouldn’t mind doing a before and after. My only request would be that you don’t use my name at all

I think it’s a great idea. Of course, pending that you have their permission. But I love BEFORE AND AFTERS.

I think as long as the person agrees it is okay. I don’t think that you have to have a before necessarily every time since people can see how nice eye makeup looks without seeing before.

Thanks for the input ladies. This is what colleagues have said, but I wanted to get the view point of a bride.
It’s so different from the people I work with regularly that would skin me alive if I posted their photos with no makeup. Funny thing is that most them are flawless!
