Pictures will give you an idea of her talent, but you really won’t know until the trial.  Since you’re getting a free one, that’ll be your best bet.  Here’s some questions to think about:

1.  It usually costs more if the artist has to travel all the way to you just to do one person.  Ask her if the BMs, mothers, etc. want their makeup done, what will she charge each person?  Then you can offer services to your gals and decide whether you treat, or each person pays for their own.

2.  The makeup always looks awesome for pre-ceremony pics, but after some crying, etc., you can definitely use a touch up.  Would she be willing to stick around until just after the ceremony for a touch up and how much is the charge?  If it’s too expensive, you’ll need to learn how to touch-up on your own.

3.  Critical question…if she is sick or can’t make it for whatever reason on the day, can she provide a qualified back-up?  It’s better to have a back-up you don’t know than no back-up at all.
