We found our Make Up Artist (MUA)

A really quick backdated post here regarding wedding day make up artist. As a budget bride, I do my homework to ensure I get a bang for my buck. Even better when I chance upon extremely good deals! ūüėÄ

I googled bridal make up artists Singapore and got a whole list of them. I get the most recent lists (i.e. 2015/2016) and start my selection process from there. Here’s the list of MUA which I’ve contacted and the one I eventually chose.

I picked Ponnie because she is very affordable and had many good reviews online. Her Facebook page also shows works she has done recently and they look pretty good!

Tadaaaa! Very happy with her services. Met up with Ponnie at her studio one month before the Big Day to discuss the make up and hairstyles. She was also very punctual on the actual day and made me feel comfortable.

Some questions to consider:

When should I start to look for make-up artist?

I started contacting them 2 months before the wedding day and most of them were booked already. So I suggest to book them 3-4 months in advance.

What should I check with the make-up artist prior to actual day?

There might be some additional costs which is not stated upfront so you might want to check with them on: eyelashes, ampoules (chemical to put on your face to make your makeup last longer), hair accessories, eyebrow trimming, facial masks, early morning surcharge.

Hope this helps! ūüôā
