Choosing a Makeup Artist for your wedding day can be a daunting thing. You may have concerns about looking too made up or worry that you could have difficulty getting makeup to last for your whole wedding day. You might not have decided how you want to look on your big day yet or perhaps you have never had your makeup professionally applied and you really dont know where to begin in choosing your bridal look.

There is no need to feel the stress because I can help you with all of these concerns. I have been working on brides for over 17 years.   

I cater for all age groups and styles. So rest assured everyone in your bridal party from junior bridesmaids to great grandmothers will look and feel amazing. Whatever look you desire I will deliver it to you on your big day.


The Trial

The first thing you need to do is contact me to secure your wedding date and once that is done at a later date we can arrange a day to have your Bridal trial. The trial is usually done about three months before the wedding and it takes about 90 minutes. It is a vital part of the wedding preparation as it allows you time to sit down with me and go through some ideas of what type of makeup style you might like. Usually I will visit you at your chosen location and it is here we can meet in a relaxed setting and discuss ideas and any specific concerns or requests that you may have. Many brides save photographs of makeup looks they like from pinterest or google images. This is something I strongly encourage as a visual aid goes a long way in describing the exact style of makeup you have in mind.

The trial is a brilliant way of putting your mind at ease. It allows you peace of mind that on your wedding day you will be wearing the makeup that you have always wanted for your big day.

Once we have gone through your ideas and have selected a style I will then apply your desired look . This gives you a chance to be certain the look is definitely what you want and allows you to see the look on your own face. Once you are happy I will then give you plenty of skincare tips for the lead up to your big day to ensure beautiful glowing radiant skin to compliment beautiful makeup.

When at all possible try to arrange your trial makeup for the same time of day that your ceremony will be taking place on the wedding day. This will allow you to test out the staying power of the products for yourself and also let you see the makeup in similar daytime lighting.

I have a wonderful makeup kit, I use only premium makeup brands and a few pro makeup products also. My products of preference tend to be MAC, Estee Lauder, Inglot, and Lancome along with a few pro brands . Any products i use on the day of your trial are available to purchase at your local department store , so you can buy these in advance for lipstick touch ups throughout the day.

My clients tell me the makeup lasts so well they have seen it last till the following day !. So makeup longevity is definitely not going to be an issue for your once I have done your wedding makeup.

Once your bridal trial is done we will then finalise your Wedding day details and you can rest assured that the one thing you wont have to worry about is your makeup on your wedding morning.
