Is Your Makeup Artist Worth It?

So let's say you are shopping on line for a shirt. You know what color you want, what type of sleeves and how you want it to look...you just don't know where you are going to get it from. You decide to type in red shirt on your computer's search engine under images and up pop endless pictures of shirts. You see a shirt that catches your eye and you click on the link. When the window opens up, you find yourself on the Macy's Website. Getting a closer look at the shirt you decide you like it even more that you see it up close...it's perfect! You know you need not look further because this is the one so you scroll down to check out the price...and that's where it happens...the shirt is a little pricier than you thought it would be. You like the shirt but decide to try and find something cheaper and return to the initial search. After looking awhile, you find a shirt that looks nice...in fact very similar to the one you first found so you click on the image. A window for K-mart pops up and so does the picture of the shirt. It's not as nice as the one from Macy's and definitely looks not as good close up, but you check the price and find it much less and decide to purchase it. Convinced you made a good choice, you await for your shirt to arrive.
 
Once your shirt is delivered, you eagerly open the package (not that it's packaged so lovely) and find your shirt. Seeing it first hand you notice the quality is not as nice as it looked, but it's still new and you will wear it tonight for your evening out. (There is a point to my story, stay with me!)
 
Upon getting dressed, you notice there are a lot of stray threads that need to be cut from the shirt. It's new and looks nice, but doesn't quite fit the way you hoped. Nonetheless, you wear it out. Half way through the night a button pops off the shirt and an end has come undone. At this moment, you are thinking you wish you would've gone with the first shirt you saw that day.
 
How often does the same thing happen when deciding to hire a makeup artist? You search for an artist, even ask for recommendations. You check out their work and decide it is perfect, top quality and exactly what you are looking for so you decide to inquire about rates and that's where it stops...rates are more than you thought they should be. Now, I must say this, by no means am I saying that a good makeup artist can be determined solely by the rates they charge, but there is a reason why a shirt cost $50 at Macy's and $15 at K Mart...you expect a certain quality from each.
 
A good makeup artist is not something you want to skimp on and are worth their weight in gold. You want to have full confidence that the person working on your face is providing you with a service that is going to make you look amazing the moment they put it on and stay that way the remainder of the time you wear it for your event. A good makeup artist will not only cater to your beauty needs, but also offer you stellar service as a person. You should have total peace when they are working on your face and have even more confidence when you leave their chair than when you first sat in it.
 
Not to mention, investing in a good makeup artist is investing in yourself. You are entrusting your personal image to this person. There are plenty of things that you can take the "cheaper" route so to speak, but when it comes to you, it should always be top shelf.
 
When deciding how to choose a makeup artist, ask yourself, " What am I really sacrificing when I choose an artist based just on rate alone?"

I like your point that investing on makeup artist is investing in yourself. Its true that don't think about investment when choosing an skin care professional or an make up artist as you are trying it on your self.

Makeup really depends upon a healthy skin and a skillful make up artist. I am agreed with all your discussion you have made about above myths.
