Here is an exclusive list of 25 talented Seattle Makeup Artists, ready to glam you up on your wedding day
When it comes to wedding planning in Seattle, your first vendors on the list after you’ve secured your Seattle wedding venue are usually your seattle wedding photographer, Seattle wedding florist and your Seattle wedding planner. While those are all important, seeing as at the end of the day you are only left with photos of your wedding day and of your venue, and you of course want to make sure your friends and family are taken care of by having a wedding planner; remember that you and your partner are the most important part of this day.
A big part of making sure of this is by feeling like your most confident self. Let this be your reminder that finding your Seattle based Makeup artist needs to be on your list of priority vendors to secure first. Whether you’re looking for soft glam, full glam, or in between, I have curated a list of 25 makeup creatives in Seattle just for you.
How to choose the right makeup artist for your big day
When picking the makeup artist there are a lot of factors that come into play, especially in a city like Seattle, that is pouring with talent in the beauty industry. Before I list some great artists, here are some of my biggest tips.
- Consider the look you’re going for, and find similar looks in their portfolios. This will be a good way of weeding out those that do not specialize in what you’re looking for, while being able to point out their past bride when referencing the look you’re going for. There’s nothing like the reassurance that they have done your dream look before, and can replicate it if desired. Remember to consider skin tones, see if your dream artist has previous clients with your similar shade of skin!
- Reviews, reviews, reviews! Read up on their timeliness, their talent, and the longevity of past brides’ makeup looks. Remember, you will be dancing, smiling, occasionally crying, and sweating over the course of your wedding day! In our list below, the first 17 are listed on “The Knot” as Best of Weddings, and their reviews speak for themselves.
- Pricing. We love a great deal, however especially in the wedding industry- remember that you get what you pay for. While considering your budget, make sure to really think hard about how much your makeup (and hair) will play into the day as a whole. You will be rocking your makeup through all of your photos, and you want to make sure you spend your money on the right artist for you. With that being said, if your dream artist happens to be over budget, reach out to one of the others listed below! Remember those that are listed here are the best of the best, it does not hurt to reach out to multiple candidates!
