Your bridal makeup is one of the finer but important details of your big day as you want to feel beautiful, comfortable and compliment your wedding photos. At the trial I want to hear all about the details of your wedding day like your dress, colour scheme, flower choices so I have a good understanding of the look you want to achieve. Photographs can help you explain what you are trying to achieve so have a look at magazines and online to see if you can find some looks that you like.
I recommend a trial 6-8 weeks before the wedding and this can take place at my beauty studio in Great Barr, Birmingham or at your home. Once we have trialled and perfected your bridal look I will take detailed notes of everything that has been done so that the look can be replicated on the wedding day. Bridesmaids do not have to have a trial unless they specifically want to have one for things like sensitive skin etc.
ON THE DAY
On the day I will arrive in plenty of time to get set up. It take 45-60 minutes to complete bridal makeup and 30-35 minutes for other members of the bridal party. I work closely with a team of makeup artists and hair stylists so if your bridal party is large then I will bring other artists to work with other members of your bridal party. Makeup is applied preferably after your hair has been styled and I would generally do your bridal makeup so it is finished about an hour before you need to leave for the ceremony so you have enough time to get into your dress.
I use Airbase airbrush makeup for your base makeup which is HD flawless, waterproof and super long lasting. You do not have to worry about having to fix it throughout the day. My makeup kit includes MAC, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay and organic makeup range Tropic for any clients who find they are sensitive to makeup.
