DO YOU OFFER MAKEUP TRIALS?
Most brides prefer to have a trial with hair and makeup prior to their wedding day. It is not essential, but to make sure that you will be 100 percent happy on the wedding day, a trial is advisable. Trials for bridesmaids are optional and I will go through colours, styles, try lippies on etc. taking notes on your requirements. I will help you make informed decisions on the styles you want. I will spend time to listen to your requests and will offer lots of helpful advice and ideas when asked. However, the final decision on the style is yours. I will be there to give you the guidance you need.
On the trial I will write up a schedule of appointment times and costs for each person on the day then once you are happy a deposit paid at your trial, will secure your booking for your special day.
DO YOU OFFER PRE-WEDDING BEAUTY TREATMENTS?
Yes, I offer in salon Spray Tans, Waxing - including XXX and Eyelash and Eyebrow Tinting, Shellac Manicures and Pedicures
WHAT COSMETICS AND PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
All makeup used is hypo-allergenic, durable and lightweight. Only professional products including MAC, Napoleon, Chanel, NARS and an extensive variety of cosmetics and mineral makeup are used. This will ensure that your results are long lasting, natural and flawless throughout your special day!
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK YOU FOR MY WEDDING MAKEUP?
It's important to secure your appointment as early on as possible to avoid your Makeup Artist being unavailable on your Wedding Day. You want not only your special day, but the experience of planning it to run as smoothly and stress free as possible.
WHAT MAKEUP IS BEST FOR PHOTOGRAPHS?
The style and design (colours) need to be more intense than for everyday appearance due to the effects of lighting. The face can be drained of colour by a high percentage leaving you looking washed out. Also, the use of glitter or shimmer may show up as a " flare" on the finished photograph. You can still get a very soft natural look, it just needs to be applied correctly.
WILL I NEED TO HAVE ANY BEAUTY PRODUCTS WITH ME ON MY WEDDING DAY?
Yes, it is a good idea to have a lip liner, lipstick, a clear lip polish and possibly a compressed translucent powder. However, when makeup is applied correctly it will stay put even in hot weather. Lipstick is the one item that will need to be touched up throughout the day.
DO YOU OFFER FALSE EYELASHES? DO I HAVE TO WEAR FALSE EYELASHES?
I do offer individual false eyelashes. When we get together to create the look you envision for your day, we can determine together if they are needed and what type, if any. They are popular right now, however a gorgeous look can be achieved with or without them.
WHAT MAKE UP LOOK IS BEST FOR MY WEDDING DAY?
Every makeup is individualised to meet your requirements, however, makeup for the bride is usually best when it is soft and feminine.
Some brides have themed weddings and will need make-up to match with the theme they have chosen. It is important to be really open and honest about what you like and don't like and this is discussed on the day of the trial.
