Your Makeup/Hair Trial Day
During our first meeting we will discuss your wedding in details. This helps me understand the style of your wedding and the style of Makeup you have in mind. We will discuss colors, themes, your dress, bridesmaid’s dresses, your Hair style etc. I will inquire what makeup you generally wear and what you have in mind. Please feel free to bring photos or colors with you on the day. Having a preview we can check durability, sensitivity or any other issues. Choosing the right makeup for you is extremely important. You must feel comfortable and beautiful of course. Your photos are going to hold all the memories, so always have this in mind when deciding on a Makeup Artist. Enhancing your features is what Makeup is all about. You are you and I will always make sure you feel confident in your Makeup.
I advise you wear a white top (or colored dress your opting for) as this will reflect back as your dress on your wedding day. Trials can take up to 1-2 hours, but there is no time limit to them as I will make sure your 100% happy before leaving.
Your Wedding Day
On the morning of your wedding I will ensure that I am there on time and ready to set up. I will require a good space to work in with good lighting and a table. I will bring my chair and all the Makeup/Hair tools. Bride’s makeup takes around 1 hour. Bridesmaids/Mother of the bride can take anything from 30 to 45 minutes per full face. I will start the bridal party first then generally the bride last so your makeup is fresh. I generally aim to finish at least 1 hour before your ceremony starts so you have enough time to get into dresses, have photographs taken and enjoy the moment. I will be available for lip touch ups or any assistance before I leave.
I work with high end products. My favourite products in my kit are Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, NARS, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Too Faced, NYX, L'oreal etc.
