Top Things to Know Before Your Makeup Trial

Makeup by Keria wants to provide you with a prepping guide featuring the top items that your makeup artist wish you knew before getting your makeup trial.

Prep your skin for application:

It is essential to make sure that your skin is hydrated to help your makeup application apply flawlessly.
Make sure to prepare your skin for your makeup application weeks before your appointment. Your makeup artist can recommend products that can help with identified skin “problems” during your trial if you’re unsure about where to start.

The most recommended moisturizers for moreĀ dry skin are:

First Aid Beauty – Ultra Repair Cream

Derma E – Hydrating Day Cream

The most recommended moisturizers for moreĀ oily skin are:

Derma E – Vitamin C Renewing Moisturizer
Retail: $16

Exfoliation of the skin is important as well.
Glam Glow – Youthmud
Retail: $59

Start a look board:

Your makeup artist may have already asked you to start your Pinterest look board, but this is just as important as prepping your skin. The reason why this is so important is that once you have selected a few looks, you can show your artist inspiration before you get your makeup completed. It is a helpful tool to make sure that your artist is on the same page. One tip is to make sure you’re seeking out images of looks that have a similar eye shape as your eye.


On the day of your makeup application make sure you arrive at your appointment with a clean face. It may be tempting to leave the house with makeup already on your face, but in some cases, the removal of makeup when you arrive at your appointment can affect the makeup application process. Don’t forget to stay on top of your skin prepping steps as you get closer to your appointment. On the day of application avoid face creams that will make your face oily. It’s often recommended to moisturize the night before your appointment but not that morning.

Don’t demand the impossible:

Keep in mind that your makeup artist’s goal is to enhance your natural beauty. Your makeup should complement you and not change you into someone else. We all have natural beauty, and it is your artist’s job to help you enhance it.

Make sure to sit back and relax:

While you’re getting your makeup done feel free to sit back and relax. Enjoy the pampering process that your artist provides and do not be shocked if your makeup artist does not speak that much as they are often allowing you to enjoy that time getting pampered.

Don’t be scared to speak up:

If there is part of your look, you do not like do not be afraid to discuss this with your artist. Do not leave your makeup artist’s chair with regret because your makeup artist wants you to be happy and feel beautiful.
