If you have the opportunity to do a trial on site prior to your destination wedding, that will always be best. Another option is to have a makeup lesson before your destination wedding. We do a makeup look with step by step directions that you can recreate yourself or give to an artist on site. This enables the look you are comfortable with to be easily recreated and takes a lot of the guesswork out of the process. If the budget allows, then consider bringing your makeup artist with you. Traveling to the destination is an option with most makeup artists. Be prepared to provide travel arrangements/associated expenses in addition to service fee. There is often a 2 day minimum fee, depending on destination.
