Makeup Appointment Time

Jamila, on November 14, 2021 at 5:27 PM Posted in Hair and Makeup 0 4

Hello! I'm about to book my makeup appointment and need some guidance on when to schedule it. I am the only one getting makeup done for the wedding and the MUA lives in the same town as me. So I'm planning on getting makeup done at salon prior to showing up to getting ready location which is in the town over (25 min). The MUA says it should take one hour. What time should I make my appointment for that morning? First look is scheduled for 12:15pm with 3pm ceremony start time.

Thank you in advance!

    I think 10am should give you enough time to get it done, get dressed and to your location.

    Are you getting hair done as well, or will that be done prior/already? Just because generally, it's best to have hair done before makeup, so would impact what time I'd suggest.

    Also, do you have a dress you can get into relatively easily buy yourself or is it a multiple-person job, haha? That will also impact. Mine has tons of tiny little buttons, for example, and they might take 10 minutes to do up, and that doesn't include getting into the thing more generally.

    I'd give myself buffer on each thing I expected to need to do, just in case.

    So, 1.5 hours for makeup, 35-40 minutes travel time, 30 minutes to get into the dress. ALSO! Make sure you eat! So maybe schedule 10-15 minutes to cram a sandwhich in somewhere. So, I'd schedule the appointment for around 9-9:30 if your first look is scheduled for 12.15.

    Thank you! I had not decided on the order in which to get my hair done, but I can definitely get it done before. Therefore, all that would be left is to travel there and get in my dress and relax before the first look. Also, my dress is very easy to get into-only a zipper, haha!
