Bridal Makeup


Makeup Trial


A pre wedding make up trial is an essential part of the bridal makeup service.


During the trial I will give you my professional advice to create a flawlesss look, taking into consideration your style, the wedding dress and the colour scheme, along with colour suitability and corrective techniques.


This is a chance to discuss any concerns you may have and to show me photos of makeup you like the look of. I always find pinterest and instagram to be a great source for inspiration!


The trial normally lasts approx 2 hours. I recommend the trial is done in the daytime so we have as much natural daylight as possible. I will also have a makeup light with me.


Once we have perfected your makeup look I will take photos and make a note of products and colours used. We can then plan the schedule for the wedding day.


I would recommend the trial takes place approximately 2-3 months before your wedding, however should you wish for the trial earlier this is no problem.


On the weddng day


On the day of the wedding I will arrive at the agreed time allowing enough time to set up.


I allow 1 hour for makeup for the bride and 40-45 minutes for each other person.  If  the wedding party is more than 6 people, depending on the wedding time I will bring another makeup artist with me.


I like to ensure the makeup is completed one hour before leaving for the ceremony, allowing enough time for the bride to put on the wedding dress and relax before the big event, and a reapplication of lipstick!


I work with several hair stylists on a regular basis so if you are looking for a hair stylist I can recommend and organise the trial.
