Yes, we always recommend a trial. it is best to have your trial no more than one month from the wedding day. Bring along some of your favourtie photos so we have an understanding of the exact look you are after. If you can’t find have any photos you love, after chatting to our artist you can feel confident your perfect look will be created.
Yes, however there are a few tips that we give our brides to help our good work along. 1) Invest in a good powder. You may become a little oily/shiny in your T-Zone, especially in summer. A touch of powder will have everything looking brand new again. 2) Lipstick/ lip gloss will certainly need to be reapplied. So having your colour with you on the day so you can touch it up will keep you looking fresh.
No, it doesn’t have to be heavy but it does have to be applied properly using the right products. A professional make-up artist knows how to make the most of your features, even out skin tone, make eyes stand out and make sure you look as beautiful as possible and still look like you!
We like to allow 30minutes per make up and 45minutes for the bride. It is a good idea to add an additional half hour in case something unexpected holds you up such as hair.
