Makeup and hair trials unfortunately are not complimentary. Trials are very important appointments, using my experience and skills, products and time we create the "look'' you're happiest with. If trials are not within your budget we can arrange a consultation in person , over the phone or a Facetime appointment and have an in-depth chat.
You might want to book your trial for the same day as your engagement shoot, Hen do or special event. For peace of mind when you book in your trial date a Hold the date deposit of £50 will be added which temporarily holds your wedding day appointment until your trial. This £50 fee will be deducted from the wedding day balance when you confirm your wedding day booking.
When booking your trial have a good think about the people you are going to have with you for your appointment. It is up to you whether you want to have your trials alone, or have people with you. Whomever you decide to have with you , please have people that will calmly help you, offer wanted advice and suggestions and not add extra stress or pressure you into having something you don't want. After all it is your special day and having too much input can be so overwhelming. I really don't suggest more than 1 or two please.
Be prepared for your trial appointment - this includes finding images of makeup and hair styles you like. I want to achieve the best possible look for you.
There are thousands of photos in magazines or online. My Favourites are Pinterest and Instagram.
Be realistic -When choosing looks try choose similar features to your own, colouring, similar eye shape, hair type and ethnicity, etc.
If you have short fine hair and the desired look shows a lady with long thick hair, the only way to achieve that look or close to it will be hair pieces or extensions. I am more than happy to advise which ones you will need . Just pop me a photo of you and your hair and the style you want to create and we can take it from there.
The same goes for a lot of eye makeup looks, Cluster and strip lashes are generally a large contributor of a lot more glam and defining looks. Don't be shy to try lashes at your trial , I have a selection of very natural to very glam and they do look so pretty if chosen correctly.
If eyes are your focus I would definitely advise at least a try.
Your trial time is 90 minutes to 2 hours so there is plenty of time to discuss all your likes and dislikes, the rest of the bridal party's hair and makeup , and time schedules for the big day. Your trial includes one look only, additional looks can be done for an additional fee, please request this prior to your appointment to make sure enough time is allocated for you.
Prior to your makeup and hair trials think about your grooming routine. This includes grooming your eye brows and other facial hair. Exfoliate dry and peeling skin , This will only hinder the makeup application and you possibly won’t see the flawless finish you hope for. It is important that you don't schedule facials right before the big day as your skin may be sensitive and break out . Plus I don't advise trying anything ''new '' too close to the wedding.
Please remove all makeup for your trial including all traces of eye makeup. And I kindly request that you pop your phone down during your trials.
Hair trials are usually best done when hair is not freshly washed for better hold. So please wash your hair the night before. Two really thorough shampoos with minimal conditioner on just the mid lengths and ends . Unless your hair is very oily or flat - If in doubt just ask me and I can advise.
Make sure you have hair extensions if these apply to the style you would like, and if possible any tiaras or accessories.
For best results book your Hair AND Makeup trial on the same day. This allows you to get the complete look for the big day.
You will always have the option of booking your day with me right after your trial. But should you wish to mull it over, get others opinions and think about it that's no problem, there is no pressure. Please note that a signed contract and 50% deposit is required to secure your event date. Wedding dates are not fully booked with booked a trial so please do get in touch as soon as possible. I ask that you get back to me within 48hrs.
After the trial I will send over the images I took from your trial and ask to see how everything held up or if there were any issues that have arisen afterwards that need to be adjusted before the big day.
If you are uncertain or change your mind of your ‘look’ please get in touch a.s.a.p as time schedules may need to be changed. Changes can be made without another trial, however if you feel more comfortable booking another trial in that's no problem at all but subject to fees.
Please be open minded to my recommendations and suggestions for you. Remember, wedding day makeup is not ‘every day’ makeup and I do this all the time. I know about colour intensities and how things will read on camera and in different lighting situations. What you may see and what a photo sees are two completely different things as well. this is why I always take photos , so you can see how you'll look on camera- I'm no photographer but I really think this helps.
Your wedding photos are the only thing that will be left over for years to come to preserve these memories. So let me make sure you look your BEST in them!
