    sammil:  hmmm, I do freelance make up and I am doing my own makeup. If

    you are good at it and feel you can take on one more task is say go for it, BUT- if she did not make the trial cut I would try goimg to a department store a couple hours before the wedding like MAC. Glance around tell them your situation. If you find someone who succeeds your expectations, ask them do they do booking outside of working. It doesn’t have to be MAC, it can be Lancôme, esteemlauder etc. Shop around! plus it is like 0 cost to get your face done at MAC when you buy $50 worth of makeup. So that way you know what colors you like and are most comfortable with and can also wear after the wedding! Best wishes!! Hope this helps. If not, get what you LOVE and do the trial step by step yourself. You don’t want to throw away time and money and most importantly not feeling your best on your day! money comes and goes in this nature. Id over ride her, respectively.

    Hi I would suggest to do your own makeup on your weeding day as you know what works and the best way to go about it is to look up wedding makeup tutorials on YouTube and find the one you like best practise the look a few times to get it perfect for your big day also go to makeup counters for advice and to treat yourself to some great makeup products. Try Mac estee lauder clinique clarins urban decay benefit lancome etc are some of the good ones they will be able to advise you what will look best with your complexion and facial featured and plus you’ll get the perfect matched foundation. For bridesmaids to the same such as look up bridesmaid makeup and advise them on what products they might like or what counter to go to to get matched to their foundation if they’re not sure on what to do etc. I’m doing my own makeup on my wedding and I’ll probably do my bridesmaids makeup too 🙂 hope this helps x

    Are there any malls near the location your getting married? If so I would say go through the beauty department and ask around or even call the counters directly. I personally worked at MAC cosmetics during my undergrad and we got calls alot about freeelance for special events such as weddings and sweet 16s and would post the persons information in our break room and we would have alot of freelancers at our store because we would have a lot of level 1 events, so someone is bound to call you for information and when they do ask them about their work and if they have a portfolio or are involved in social media and look through it and even tell them your concerns but most of the artists in my region which was OC 1, california had experience doing people from different backgrounds make up.

    I FEEL YOUR PAIN! I’m asian too and one of my biggest fears is finding a makeup artist that is comfortable & familiar with our different bone & eye structure. 

    If i was you, i would do either of the following: (1) do own makeup and ask your friend to teach you <practice!> (2) find a makeup artist in LA who would be willing to fly to your wedding <you’d be surprised!> or (3) try to find some asian salon or asian makeup artist in MN

     

    good luck, i know it’s probably stressful, but i bet no matter what, you’ll look beautiful!

    Any MUA worth his/her salt should be trained to be able do an Asian eye. For my course it was a completely seperate assessment as the makeup needs to be applied a different way. There’s a distinctive technique that needs to be used. It’s the same for Persian eyes, etc.

    When looking for a MUA to trial with, ask them if they have been trained to apply makeup to Asian eyes. I know you said not many had Asian examples in their portfolios however if they really have experience working with Asian eyes (actual practical experience, not just training), they should have various pictures of their work.

    You also need to consider that if the Asian population is not that great in the area then perhaps they don’t keep it in their mainstream portfolio as they feel it’s not relevant to the majority of their clients. I for one have seperate portfolios for runway, editorial, straight glam and weddings (which are also split further into categories like Asian, African American, etc.). I mean if I was working on a Hispanic bride, I wouldn’t be showing her my Asian portfolio and vice versa because it’s just not relevant to that particular client. Ask the MUA if they have experience with Asian eyes and if they say yes then ask if they have any photos demonstrating their work that are not available in their online portfolio.
