1. What products do you us
only those products that I have found compliments each person i see.
I have a large variety of professional
make-up brushes which are cleaned after each client.
I uphold tight
hygiene practices and use disposable applicators where necessary.
2. When should I have a trial?
You can have your trial as soon as you have decided on your dress,
colour scheme and other details that are important to you about your
wedding. Having your trial as soon as you have decided to have a
make-up artist ensures that you are happy with your booking and means
it's another thing ticked off your list.
recommend leaving it no later than 6 weeks before your occasion.
3. Do you do hair styling?
Yes I also do hair, if you see my gallery.
4. Do you have insurance?
Yes. I am fully insured.
insurance covers me both at your home and at your venue, or wherever
else you are getting ready.
5. How long will the make-up last for?
I use products that I have tested for longevity and I use
application techniques that will ensure your make-up lasts well
throughout the day and evening but minor touch-ups might be needed.
may also like to purchase and carry a lipstick/gloss and a powder
compact or blotting tissues, but I will discuss this with you at your
6. What happens at the trial?
Your trial/consultation lasts around 1 hour 30 mins.
We will start by discussing
the details of your wedding ie- dresses, hair, flowers, color theme etc. We
will also discuss what make-up, if any, you normally wear and any ideas we both have and then I'd try out a look that we will
have talked about.
We can keep trying as many looks in the time period stated until you are 100% confident
with your make-up.
If there is a specific look you want i would suggest that you take pictures of make-up looks from magazines etc, this gives us both a better understanding of what you may require.
If your bridesmaids, mother or any other guests would like a trial
they should have theirs at the same appointment.
7. What happens on the day?
I will arrive in plenty of time to set-up so I am ready to start the
first person promptly. The timings of your wedding day make-up will be
carefully planned in advance to ensure everyone is ready in good time.
Make-up is generally applied after the hair has been styled and I
prefer to work on bridesmaids, mums etc first before the bride so the
bride is as fresh as possible for the ceremony.
Your bridal or special occasion make-up will take up to an hour and
each other person will take around 30 to 45 minutes, but this will be
discussed with you well in advance of the occasion.
If you have any more questions that you may think i have missed, please feel free to ask away.
