How to compliment a makeup artist?
Highlight their professional aspects that you personally admire.
What do I mean by this? Let me explain.
Makeup artists are a special breed of ‘artists’. It’s in the name. Their profession solely relies on the weight of their creativity and the fine skills of their hand. Like any other creative professions, makeup artists generally choose to become an artist as opposed to being forced by circumstances. They’ve to go through careful training and years of practice to fine-tune their skills.
Their relationship with their clients generally starts with their business. If they can build up trust with their clients with their skills and professionalism, their artist-client relationship may transcend into something more, like friendship.
But we’ve to remember that these relationships start on the basis of professionalism. Plus, it’s obvious a makeup artist who is passionate about their profession will definitely be skilful.
So, the ideal remark would be to appreciate makeup artists for their work.
There are many ways that you show your appreciation to your makeup artist.
But let’s be honest. We like them because of how good a job they do on us to make us beautiful. On a special occasion, the skillfulness of a makeup artist can make or break your day. Every makeup artist wants to hear how you feel about the magic in their hands. That’s where their passion lies. What’s more, is that they’ll love the pleasure to work with you.
If your makeup artist is a female, you can certainly compliment her beauty. Every girl loves being called beautiful.
But you’ve to be logical. That’s not what she probably wants to hear. The compliment is not even the least bit useful to her, seeing that you’re her client. Her business depends on how pleased you’re with her hard work. So complimenting her for her work will not only reassure her, but you may even receive some skincare tips if there is a friendly vibe between the two of you.
The same argument can be made for a male makeup artist.
The appreciation you show to your makeup artist will come naturally. You don’t have to fake it. I’m assuming most people will not appreciate someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing, especially at the workplace. A lousy makeup can not only ruin your special day, but it may even potentially be dangerous to your skin.
So, here are some examples of factors for which you can show your appreciation to your makeup artist.

Imagine being late on your big day because your makeup artist is late. Or imagine another scenario where your makeup artist is so busy that they decide to compromise on how beautiful can they make you look.
Yet, both of these scenarios are very likely because makeup artists, especially the popular ones, run through a hectic schedule all the time. So when they care so much to ensure that you receive a proper service and you receive it on time, it is definitely appreciable.
Just say that you’re thankful for the wonderful service that you received. You don’t need to be fancy here. We humans are very well equipped to detect pretentious behaviour. If you’re genuinely thankful, there’s no need for that.
Verified Purchase Feedback
When a makeup artist keeps top-notch cosmetics to serve their customers, it shows that they care about their clients. But remember,
price ≠ quality
Just because an item is pricey doesn’t mean that it’s best suited to your particular type of skin or your hair. Even a cheap cosmetic may be superior among many of the same types that are more expensive. A skilful makeup artist will know what’s best for you. We should appreciate them for the time they invested in becoming experts in their craft.
Like my point above, just compliment them in a genuine manner. That’ll make their day.
We go to our makeup artists to receive a service. Let’s be honest; if our makeup needs to be that absolutely perfect that we need a makeup artist, we’re probably in a hurry.
Would you like it if your makeup artist is wasting your time with chit-chat?
More yet, how would you feel when you see that your makeup artist is declining their other clients’ unreasonable request to spend time in idle chit-chatting?
Because they know that it’s very unprofessional, and they decide to value your time instead. Who wouldn’t want to come back to receive another service from this makeup artist?
That’s how important professionalism is. But without accompanying skills, professionalism has little value. They complement each other like bread and butter.
The job of a makeup artist is no easy feat. They work so hard to make us feel so beautiful! It’s like practically drawing features on our faces. They’ve to be aware of the flaws or blemishes that need to be subtly covered under the makeup while simultaneously accentuating our beautiful features.
Then there’re the thousands of types and brands of cosmetics. Studying the science behind these products is not simple either.
Do you see what I’m getting at? Pass along your appreciation if your makeup artist maintains these characteristic traits. And like my advice before, just be honest and say what’s on your mind. People love genuine compliments.
Many people will give you example statements to pass along to your makeup artist as a compliment. I’m against that. We’re organic beings. “One type, fits all” doesn’t bode well with us. Every situation requires us to think about what fits in that context.
The same goes for the compliments to your makeup artist. If you’re happy with their service, just say it out loud. It’ll come out of the bottom of your heart, and no matter how simple it is, the only thing that they’ll care about is that your compliment is sincere.
However, if you’re worried about your articulation- don’t. Remember what I said before? Makeup artists are artists. When they realise that you’re making an active effort to compliment them and their art, they’ll undoubtedly appreciate it.
