Makeup and Hair Trial day
Before our meeting I usually have an insight of your wedding details already. When we meet we will discuss further to help 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 like or you don’t like. Please feel free to bring inspirational photos or colors with you on the day.
Having a preview of your wedding Makeup and Hair we can check durability and sensitivity. It is beneficial for both of us: I can see your skin, your face and eye shape, your hair texture and I will work more efficiently on your wedding day. For you that mean you will know what to expect.
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.
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 natural lighting (by a window) and a table. I will bring my chair, light and all the Makeup and 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.
Products: I only use professional products – waterproof mascara is a must. My favourite products in my kit are from Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, NARS, MAC Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Too Faced etc.
