Bridal Costs and General FAQ

Being trusted to be part of your big day is a huge privilege and one I take very seriously.
It is paramount to me to have a happy, satisfied and confident bride.

Why do a trial run?

A makeup trial in my view is vital for the bride. It gives both the bride and makeup artist time to establish a rapport which really pays off when it comes to the all-important wedding day!

During this time a relaxed atmosphere is created and the expectations of the bride can be discussed fully and actioned. We will chat about colours, hair, face shapes, tones, likes and dislikes. We will work together to create the desired look encouraging feedback.  This is vital and welcomed by myself as your dreams are possible but we need to work together to create them.

As we move through the trial finding colours and products you like I will make a note of every detail.

This will ensure the application on your wedding day runs smoothly and you look exactly as you did for your trial.

A trial will also help me with timings so I can set a schedule that coincides with the photographer’s schedule as well as your wedding coordinators if you have one.

Above all a trial is great fun!

Do you do hair as well as make-up?

I work alongside an excellent hairdresser who is also a friend. If you would like her contact details please let me know. She comes highly recommended. Click HERE for Angela McKnight Hair

What make-up do you use?

I adore make-up and respect the benefits of many products. Therefore my box is full of a variety of brands. My favourites however consist of MAC, Bobbie Brown, Urban Decay, Estee Lauder, Channel, Clinique and Bare Minerals.

When should I book my make-up trial?

The trial takes place approximately 6-8 weeks before the big day.

I can do trials on mums and bridesmaids too if required.

I like to allow up to 2 hours for the trial, allowing us to play with colours and perfect the look you require.

I want you to feel pampered and not rushed.

Its handy to have some ideas or pictures of make-up that you like the look of.

Please note should you cancel this trial session with less than 24 hours notice, full payment is required.
