Is a trial required for wedding makeup?
Yes. A trial is required to ensure your look is perfected before the day of your wedding. A bride should know in advance exactly how her makeup will look on the big day. Members of the bridal makeup are welcome to have a trial done, but is not required, but I would need to know if they have any allergies that they know of.
How soon shall I book a trial?
I highly recommend a trial within 3 months of your wedding.
Should I have my hair done before my makeup?
Ideally yes, its best if your makeup done after your hair as heated appliances/sprays can interfere with the finished look.
How long will it take to apply the makeup on my wedding day?
I will arrive in plenty of time to set up: I just need a room with lots of natural light and a table. Make-up is best applied after you have had your hair styled as I need to remove any traces of hairspray from your skin before application. I allow up to 90 mins for the brides make-up and up to 45mins for others. You will be ready in plenty of time to dress and for photos to be taken.) and will stay with you until you leave for any last minute touch-ups.
Will my makeup stay all day?
I use professional quality primers and fixers to guarantee your make-up looks radiant and stays in place all day and lasts into the night. I always recommend however that you carry a translucent powder to remove any shine that may peep through and your lip colour of choice so you can re-apply during the day.
Is a deposit required?
Yes. A non refundable £80 deposit will be required when booking a trial, this secures and covers the cost of your trial booking and reserve your wedding date,
Where will the trial be held?
All makeup trials are undertaken at the makeup artist home studio at a mutually convenient time.
Do you offer discounts for a large bridal party?
Due to the fact that my prices are competitively based on my experience and services provided no additional discounts are offered. Please ensure your budget works with my prices prior to inquiring.
Do you offer an all day service?
This service starts as soon as I finish the initial makeup services and covers you for 6 hours. This is an additional service that must be purchased seperately. This must be continous as I will not be travelling back home and coming back later.
What is the price for traditional/cultural weddings?
The price is the same.
Will you travel?
I am mobile and willing to travel on the wedding day. East London. Covers East, Central, North and South London as well as some parts of Essex, Surrey and Middlesex. Travel charges will apply
