Do I have to have a makeup trial?
For general special occasions makeup you probably won't want to (although you can if you would prefer).
I would strongly suggest that all Brides have a makeup trial at least one month before the big day, this allows us to discuss the style of your dress/colours/themes and experiment with different looks of makeup. Your makeup trial usually takes about an hour and half, although I won't be clock watching so if we need to run over to get everything right then that's not a problem. I will then record all the products we agree on so that I can replicate your makeup on the day.
What if I don't know what look I want on my special day?
I suggest to clients that they look through magazines and look for several makeup photos of their favourite celebrities/models . Then they should show me and that way I'll have a really good idea of what you want. Don't worry we'll work it out together.
Do you do hair also?
No, I am not trained or experienced in hairdressing - its not always practical for one person to try and do hair and makeup for a whole bridal party. I can however recommend hairdressers - just ask for details.
I have sensitive skin what products do you use?
Wherever possible I use hypoallergenic products. We will discuss your requirements during our telephone consultation and I will ensure my kit is adjusted to suit your skin type.

Which comes first, makeup or hair styling?
I am flexible. Sometimes makeup before hair works well if the hair is styled down around the face, because pinning the hair back makes application easier. If you are having a hairdresser too, then I will liase with them to work out how we'll get the timings right for us all.
How much time should I set aside for makeup?
We'll discuss this in detail either on the telephone or at your trial but as a general rule special occasions/bridesmaids/mother of the bride take 40-45 mins each and the bride about an hour.
Will you try and sell me products?
I am not tied to any particular product brand as I prefer the flexibility to use my choice of the best products no matter who manufactures them. I will not try and sell you any products. If you would like to purchase any of the makeup I use on you, I will happily give you details of the products I use on your face.
What if I need to touch up after you have applied my make up?
The products I use and the way I apply your makeup should last 12 to 14 hours. However I'll give you some blotting paper and a small container with the lipstick color I've applied just in case you need the odd touch up after I'm gone. Blotting paper is actually better than powder because powdering too much can make skin start to look chalky. If you're really worried about ruining your makeup if you do your own touch ups or want a more dramatic look for the evening you can hire me for the day or I may be able to return in the evening depending on location.
