Sourcing your bridal make-up artist might seem overwhelming to begin with but there are plenty of ways you could find the artist for you:

Firstly, word of mouth is by far the best recommendation for any supplier. So make sure you ask your most recently married friends who they can recommend.
Secondly, check with the suppliers that you have already booked for their recommendations. For example, your venue will have a recommended list, and your photographer will have spent lots of time photographing wedding prep mornings so they'll have met lots of bridal make-up artists. Or your hairdresser may have a bridal make-up artist that they work closely with too.
Lastly, there are lots of websites made especially for finding suppliers and lots of other helpful wedding tips.
