Which make-up brands do you use?
Most of my kit is MAC make-up, chosen for its longevity and flawless coverage which is perfect for wedding make-up both for photographs and up close. All of the basics are MAC including foundations, concealer and powder. I also use a few specially selected products from other well known make-up brands.
I have sensitive skin, is it suitable for me? The MAC products I use are water based, so it is extremely unlikely that you would react to it. I have used this make-up previously on hyposensitive skins including rosaceous and have never experienced a problem with it. If however you do have any known allergies then please let me know before your trial so that I can try and source alternative products for you.
Do I need a trial? Trials are important for a number of reasons: Firstly so that you can try out your hair and make-up to see if it is what you are after for that day: Secondly to be able to see how much time we will need on the day to create the look that you want: thirdly so that we can get to know each other before the day. Honesty really is the best policy when it comes to trials so please do be aware that I am rarely offended by feedback.
How soon before my wedding do I need a trial? I normally recommend trials to be 6-8 weeks before the wedding. This allows enough time for re-trial if necessary, and also enough time to give your hair and skin little extra TLC if needed. Unless you are planning a drastic hair cut, it will also enable me to see how you hair will be on the day and what styles will work best with it. If you would like to have your trial on a particular date then please let me know as soon as possible so that I can reserve that date for you. Summer months are particularly busy so do be aware of this when choosing a trial date. If you would like to have your trial outside of the 8 weeks time frame then this is fine also, my timescale are simply a guideline.
Can you do separate trial dates for my bridesmaids? Trials are not compulsory for bridesmaids but I do ask that you send over pictures of your bridesmaids and examples of styles that you would like for them so that I can fully prepare timings for the day. Unfortunately, without having done a trial for bridesmaids I cannot do styles which are too detailed and complicated to prevent any unnecessary stress on the wedding morning.
Do I need to pay a deposit? Due to the volume of enquires for every weekend of the year, I will need to take a deposit of £15 per person to secure your wedding date. This will be redeemable off the total wedding cost.
Can I use my own make-up? I am happy to apply any make-up products of your own for you. I want you to feel at your best and so would be glad to use any products that you are used to or use regularly to allow this. I will also be happy to give advice on certain products based on my experiences.
When should I wash my hair? I would recommend you to wash you hair the day before the wedding. So that the hair is not too silky and holds in place.
