When Is It Time To Consult A Makeup Artist?

Hey beauties, welcome back to Creative Contour By Carla™! A very happy new year to you all! I hope you all are enjoying the information I am giving you. Since we are starting this new year 2024, I figured it was the best time to help you out. So let's talk about this.

When is it time to consult a makeup artist? There are a few things to consider.

makeup products on the table

1. You want a makeup routine and don't know where to start

I am starting off with the big one, beauties, because this could apply to anyone; whether or not you have any experience applying your own makeup. You can have no experience at all, looking for an experienced professional to guide you. Or, you could be looking to change things up in your normal makeup routine, because sometimes things get old! I completely understand both viewpoints.

For the beginners:

Understand that coming to a professional makeup artist with no experience or makeup products is completely fine! I often say that you all are my favorite people, because you are fresh and ready to learn! There is no need to be embarrassed to ask for help. It's exactly why I am here! I am happy to help you find great makeup products and brushes, and then find the best makeup routine that will work for you!

For those with some experience:

I am aware that social media channels like youtube and tiktok have lots of free advice. I am also aware that while you may find people who look like you applying their own makeup, guess what: they aren't you. You have your own unique concerns. You have your own unique facial features, and need to learn how to apply directly on you! I also understand that while you have some experience in applying, you may want to learn some new techniques! That's what I am here for!

2. You love makeup, but need help finding the right products. Nothing works, help!

Beauties, beauties, beauties, no need to fret!! I have your BACK. As a professional, I understand how product formulas work, and how they will work with each other once applied. So, when it comes to shopping for makeup products, I can do some research in advance of your session, in order to help you understand what ingredients will work best for your unique needs. I'm here for you and want you to succeed every time you wear makeup.

As a licensed esthetician, this also includes skincare! I can give basic advice and recommend a basic routine. If your skincare needs exceed this information, I recommend you consult a practicing esthetician and have a full skin analysis for further help.

3. Online tutorials aren't helpful to me at all. It's so frustrating!

I completely understand! I mentioned this earlier in this blog post, but I want to go in depth a little here. While youtube and tiktok have some great tutorials and tips, they do not teach you exactly how to apply on your face. They do not know your unique facial bone structure, and cannot advise you on exactly how to apply and blend makeup. But you know who can? Your favorite makeup artist, hello! I'm happy to guide you in applying makeup to enhance your unique facial features. I have your back! No need to worry anymore about going to social media for makeup help, when you have a professional in your corner!

Beauties, I hope this was helpful for you all! I wanted to give you a few tips to start the new year on the right foot! Remember that I always have your back and want you all to love makeup again! Applying and shopping for makeup is easy, when you have the right professional guiding you! If you are ready to chat, book your free phone consultation today!

Lots of love and lipstick,
