I have had my makeup done professionally just three times which was on my engagement day, wedding day and the trial makeup. The experience was great she was very professional and she even came with her own speakers for music which was a plus. On the day of my engagement some things went left and she stayed till the very end and even did my makeup again for the evening party even though it wasn’t part of the booking. She made my day so much better.
On the other hand, I have heard stories from other people who have experienced other makeup artists and their stories were not so pleasant. From bad hygiene to being late and sometimes not even showing up! The stories never end. I took to my insta stories to find out what other people had experienced and I got some good and funny stories. The next post like this we will hear from the makeup artists to tell us stories of clients. Of course this is just for banter so no names will be used.
‘She glued the eyelashes with glue craft! I had to go to emergency to take it off 😂😭😩’
She got really mad that ‘I haven’t trimmed my brows before’ and I’m like yes hun. Other MUA’s, even professionals still draw my eyebrows without complaining and omo come and see talking sessions throughout the entire makeup session (P.S my brows aren’t bushy)
‘shaved off the root of my brows💔💔💔’
‘Madam used black pencil for my brows (I’m fair ) and shaved all my ‘sideburns”
‘The liner covered half my eyelids and my face felt like I could peel the layers of product off if I tried’.
‘Came with an apprentice to do my grad makeup. They had to wipe everything off and redo it’
‘She didn’t show up for my wedding at all. After the strict payment before booking policy.
‘Hmmmmm! I have bushy brows and I love them. I specifically said, do not cut or play with it the auntie cut it in a weird way and tbh I looked ugly at least to my brother and I. He said, your 2by4 makeup looks better than this. Don’t follow me until you’ve cleaned it’
‘She came late so late bridesmaids almost delayed the wedding. We didn’t get any pictures with the bride. Forgot to put falsies on some of us and didn’t even think to offer compensation ‘
‘At the end I should have used mosquito coil ashes! everything was ashy AF🙁’.
‘Booked for wedding guest. cancelled the day before after paying two weeks earlier found out from IG she had booked someone else for my day…A bride i think. She claimed she was sick by the way’.
‘She took money for both hair & makeup for my 3 bridesmaids, my mum & my sister. she came 4 hrs late without hair stylist and refused to let another MUA help her. She did crappy makeup for 5 people and did a hairstyle of her choice for me made me extremely late for my wedding. I wish I could mention her name.’
‘Too much highlight on my face and after some few hours the makeup was dripping’
‘Hated my engagement look. The foundation shade she used made me look so yellow! I told her I didn’t want her to trim my brows, she insisted and trimmed almost everything off’
‘She cut the top of my brow and tried to cover it. Luckily the razor was new.’
‘Had irritations after and I looked so white’
‘He claimed to have forgotten even though i confirmed the day before and the D DAY!’
“She used bad products, I couldn’t look in the mirror and she shaved half my eyebrows off”
“Her brushes were damp and smelt like key soap 🥴”
“She came with lighter shades because she said my voice sounded like I’d be light skinned”
“The lady shaved off one of my eyebrows. It has never been the same again 🤣🤣🤣”
“I booked 2 weeks ahead and she canceled on me 12 hours to the D Day 😠🥺”
“I picked a particular makeup artist for my graduation because I ‘obviously’ liked HER work. On the day of my graduation, I got to her studio and SOMEONE ELSE was sent to do my makeup. I think something like that should have been communicated to me prior to the appointment. Anyways, not only was the makeup bad, but she arrived late and the lights were off.. so I was fully sweating whiles she was doing the makeup. I ended up cleaning everything and doing it myself when I got back home 🤡.”
“She did my ex bf’s wife’s wedding makeup. Horror🤣🤣🤣. It actually consoled me. Shortly after she did my makeup for a commercial shoot.Chale I looked like a sick pussycat. That ad never saw tv 🤣🤣🤣.”
“When She chose a graduation service over my wedding and came late to delay my event 😩”
