Ever wondered how to compliment a makeup artist and make their day?

Makeup artists play a crucial role in our most important moments, like weddings, big events, or maybe that time you’ll be appearing on national TV.

While they can often see how satisfied a client is by the amazed look on their face or their big smiles after the service, many of them don’t get a direct compliment, especially in Malaysia, simply because Asians aren’t the most forthcoming when it comes to praises.

But showing appreciation isn’t hard! If you’re wondering how to compliment a makeup artist, here are four sincere ways to show your appreciation.

For Their Skills and Professionalism

Some clients prefer a specific look, and most of the time, their satisfaction depends on whether the makeup artist did exactly what they wanted. If your makeup artist did a good job, remember to commend them.

There are also times when makeup artists get picky clients. People who always change their minds and are impatient, among other things. Dealing with such clients isn’t easy.

However, makeup artists often demonstrate remarkable professionalism even in the face of such stress. It’s truly impressive how they handle these situations with poise and expertise, ensuring that the client’s needs are met while upholding the standards of their craft.

So, make sure to compliment their patience and professionalism.

Here’s How You Can Compliment Your Makeup Artist:

  • I would never have been able to create such a beautiful natural makeup look without your help. Thank you for the professional and well-delivered work.
  • Thanks for being so patient with me despite my demands. You have truly exhibited professionalism in your service.
  • You took the time to blend the eyeshadow so well that I’ve never seen a more perfect smokey eye on me.
  • I truly appreciate your patience and attention to detail despite my picky commands. Thank you for your exceptional work!

For Being on Time and Working Effectively Under Pressure

Every event has different timelines. And when these timelines aren’t met, problems arise and people involved tend to panic. Makeup artists who are able to handle the pressure without fuss and do their work on time should be rewarded!

Plus, there are times when you need to get ready before the sun rises. So, show your appreciation by providing them with light refreshments.

Here’s How You Can Compliment Your Makeup Artist:

  • Thanks for being on time even though it’s really early.
  • I’m so grateful you’re able to complete the makeup within such a short time – most importantly, I look really good too!
  • I know it’s super early, but please help yourself to some light refreshments and do let me know if you need anything else to boost your energy!
  • You’re so calm even under the pressures of time – this shows how professional and skilled you are.
  • Your punctuality and efficiency are truly commendable; you delivered a flawless makeup look right on schedule.

For the Quality Items in Their Makeup Kit

High-quality makeup artists always make sure that they only use the best products in their arsenal. And this doesn’t mean that only high-end products count!

There are many high-quality drugstore makeup products on the market, and it really shows how knowledgeable in the beauty industry makeup artists are if they know this!

Here’s How You Can Compliment Your Makeup Artist:

  • I can see you used only the best products on me – thank you!
  • Your makeup kit is very well stocked and there’s a product for every need; I’m grateful for that!
  • This has to be one of the most well-equipped makeup kits I’ve seen!
  • I’m super grateful that I chose you as my makeup artist. You have all the right products to make me shine on my big day.
  • Your selection of makeup products truly reflects your commitment to quality and I truly appreciate it!

For Their Ability To Make You Look Your Very Best

This is the best compliment any makeup artist can ever receive. Doing makeup requires excellent skill, and if you have a makeup artist who can do that and more, let them know!

Going out of your way to say these kind words will surely lift the spirit of any makeup artist, making them inspired to continue their passion.

Here’s How You Can Compliment Your Makeup Artist:

  • Thank you for helping me look the best version of myself!
  • I look good! Thanks for making this happen!
  • I’m going to take so many photos, thanks to the beautiful work you’ve delivered.
  • Your talent has truly made a memorable difference!

For Providing Jewellery Rentals

Sometimes, makeup artists provide jewellery rentals, and if you decide to use theirs instead of your own, be sure to compliment them on their selection of jewellery and how they complete your whole look.

When it comes time to return the jewellery, be sure to pack them up neatly in a box instead of just putting them in a plastic bag, all tangled up!

And a simple thank-you note wouldn’t hurt either; it simply shows how much you value and appreciate their service and products.

Here’s How You Can Compliment Your Makeup Artist:

  • I love the selection of jewellery you have. I’m grateful I decided to go with your options!
  • Love how this necklace and earrings go well with my outfit. Thank you!
  • Thank you for bringing a few jewellery options for me to try on and choose the ones that complete my look!

How To Compliment a Makeup Artist: Verbal? Virtual?

Both verbal and virtual compliments are great. Verbal compliments give them that warm, fuzzy feeling and also a personal touch that you can’t replicate anywhere.

Virtual ones, on the other hand, allow them to easily share on their social media platforms as positive testimonials, and at the same time, let them look at it again when they’d like to.

This is why we recommend doing both. Give a short and sweet verbal compliment to your makeup artist on the spot if you feel that the job was well done, and then follow up with a more thorough testimonial after the session.

Positive testimonials on social media pages can definitely help build any up-and-coming makeup artist’s profile in Malaysia, so make sure you give a shout-out whenever you can!
