Your makeup trial will generally last 1-2 hours and is vital to ensure you will be happy with what will happen on the day. During this time I will go over every detail of complextion, types of makeup, colours and style. You have probably already got some idea of the look you would like but if you haven't don't worry we can look at this together in my digital portfolio. I will also discuss the impact of your makeup in the photo's for your big day.
Some things to have handy for your trial;
Examples of colour schemes i.e. Fabric swatches, pictures of flowers, pictures of bridemaid dresses.
Pictures of your dress
Pictures from your hair stylist trial if you've had one or examples of styles you like.
A top in a similar colour to your dress
The Big Day
This is when it all comes together, and I will ensure that the look from your trial will be perfectly recreated for your special day. I recommend letting your hair stylist finish before I start applying makeup, though she is able to work around everyone on the morning or afternoon.
I normally suggest allowing 1 hour for your makeup, and 40 minutes for each Bridesmaid. I will work around your timings and always aim to have everyones makeup finished well before you are due to leave for the wedding venue to allow time for photos, and all the little last minute jobs.
It's not just wedding days that call for professioanl makeup. Special occasions such as a School Prom, a University Ball, or an Award Ceremony will mean you want to look your best. I am available to help you achieve that perfectly flawless look to make the event just that bit more special. Trials are advisable but not essential.
Not everyone gets married in the UK, and paying for a Makeup artists travel expenses could become quite expensive! For this reason I also offers lessons to show you how to achieve that perfect look yourself on your big day. The lesson will be at your home and can involve up to 3 people.
Lessons will cover:
