A trial is recommended anywhere between 5 weeks to 3 months before the wedding. It is important that it is fresh in both our minds and you have a clear idea of the aesthetic of your day.
The trial will take about 1-1.5 hours during which we will discuss the details of your day, your skin and skin care routine, your preferences and, of course, trial your full bridal makeup. If you bring with you a bridesmaid, mother of the bride or any other key person, we can also trial their makeup too. It will give you the opportunity to ask me any questions you like and ensure you are comfortable and relaxed ahead of your wedding day.
Please bring with you or wear a white (or the colour of your dress) top. White can really make a difference to the overall look of makeup so it is really important to make the trial as real to life as possible. A picture of your dress and the bridesmaids dresses is also really helpful. A good idea is to add some makeup looks you like to a Pinterest board, it really helps to understand the sort of makeup you like.
You can also bring a lipstick you may want to wear on the day or I can recommend one for you to purchase based on your trial.
For make-up a fresh face is the best, but understandably not everyone likes to leave the house this way so a little make-up is fine.
The Bridesmaids will need a lipstick or gloss with them so they have it to top up throughout the day.
Your makeup will be applied especially to last as long as possible throughout the day however it is likely you will need to top up your lipstick after all that champagne and kissing! Depending on your skin type and the weather conditions on the day you may need some minimal touch ups. I will be happy to recommend some products if needed, based on your trial.
This varies for each wedding and depends on the time of your ceremony and amount of people in your wedding party.
Most brides book a year in advance for spring/summer weddings and three to six months in advance for winter weddings.
