These are some of the questions that my beautiful brides have asked me:
Do I need to have a trial before my wedding and when should I book it?
I would certainly recommend having a trial before your wedding date so that all the finer details are taken care of at this appointment. It will help make your wedding day seamless and relaxing. All of your ideas of what you would like to look like on your special day, and they will begin will come to life! Book your trial as soon as possible - ideally between 4-6 weeks out from your wedding date.
What products do you use?
I only use premium products for all of my brides. My policy is "high quality at a reasonable price". Over the years I have tried many products and continue to use only the ones that I LOVE. These include MAC, Laura Mercier, Napoleon, Element Two (this is the airbrush foundation used on the television show X-Factor), Benefit, and Morphe Cosmetics. I will normally use a combination of these to create a look that is unique to you.
How do I prepare my hair and skin prior to my wedding day?
I have created a checklist which is sent to you at the time of your booking that provide you with all of the details surrounding preparation for your wedding day. It covers questions such as "How long before my wedding should I have my hair coloured?" and "When should I have my brows waxed or my lashes tinted?". It also includes a timeline for you to make your preparations as smooth as possible.
What is the difference between airbrush and traditional makeup?
Airbrush makeup is used for events such as weddings for the durability that it provides, along with the flawless coverage that it gives. It is kiss proof, rub proof and lasts for up to 16 hours. Almost all of the makeup that is on this website is airbrush makeup. Traditional makeup will always have its place for events - this method is more suited to more mature skin or to provide certain high fashion looks.
Should I tan before my wedding day?
Many brides choose to tan for their wedding day. If you a using a self tanner, remember to experiment well before the event to determine the correct amount required to gain your desired look. If you are attending a professional tanning studio, it is still a good idea to have an application well before the event, otherwise you risk the look of unnatural colour or even an allergic reaction. Have your tan done at least 2 days before the wedding day.
How many people can you accommodate for hair and makeup?
I can look after as many people as you would like - I have worked on parties as small as 2 up to 10. If required I will provide extra experienced stylists that will work under my supervision at no cost to you.
