Do I need a trial?
I recommend all of my brides have a trial appointment as it's a fail safe way of being 100% confident with how you look and feel on your wedding day. It's also a great opportunity for you and me to get to know each other ahead of the day.
Usually makeup trials I run at my studio but if you prefer me to come to your location please get in touch with me & I will try my best.
When is recommend to have makeup trial?
A make up trial is recommended as soon as possible after you know my availability before the wedding day & perfect if know your wedding day whole image: dress colour, flowers, hairstyle etc
If you need a last minute booking please get in touch anyway and I will do my best to fit you in.
On the trial day I will assess the shape of your face, your skin tone and will talk about your interests and style so that we can create something that is truly you. This is a time when you can discuss any requests and ask questions.
Everything discussed and the products chosen during the trial will be documented & captured.
How long will the trial takes?
The trial usually takes about 2 hours, although I will be with you until you are completely happy with the result.
Which makeup brands are in your kit?
Charlotte Tilbury, Dior, Hour Glass, Iconic London, Mac, Urban Decay, Bare Minerals, Laura Mercier, Benefit, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Lisa Eldridge, Make Up Forever, Clinique, No 7 etc
Where can I find great wedding makeup inspiration?
Have a look at our Pinterest page! Here you will find loads of gorgeous inspiration.
How can I secure my booking with you?
Your wedding date is secured once your non-refundable deposit has been received. This puts you ahead of any other bride wanting to book with me on the same day. (This is deducted from the final booking total)
On the day
On the wedding\event day usually I travel to my client's agreed place but if you willing to have a makeup in my studio you are more than welcome. Ideally you should be makeup free to save time. Make sure your skin is well moisturised so that it's in tip top condition for applying makeup. Eat a fruit and vegetable rich breakfast if possible so you're glowing from the inside out! And lastly, relax, sit back and enjoy the experience of having beautiful make up applied to suit you!
How long does makeup takes on the day?
1hour 10 minutes will be scheduled in for the bride makeup and for bridesmaids/mothers/guests, 30-45 minutes is scheduled per service.
What do I need to prepare before my trial and the wedding day?
Once your trial date has been booked, you'll be sent our 'Bridal Trial Tips' via email which includes lots of helpful info for you to prepare.
