“Natural Makeup” – this means something different to everyone. A little tip for you….come to your trial wearing your everyday makeup. This is a fantastic way for me learn about your comfort zones, how much makeup you wear and what tones of colour you feel comfortable wearing. It all helps me to create the perfect look for you.”
Countdown to the Big Day…..
Preparing for your wedding is an important part of the process. I recommend that we start talking all things ‘Wedding Prep’ as soon as you have secured your date with me. I am able to assess your skin, discuss any concerns you have and recommend the perfect products for you to use. If your skin is looking its best for your big day you will feel even more radiant, glowing skin is always in!
A pre wedding trial is essential for us both so we can get to know one another and work together on your desired look. Having a trial allows you to relax and enjoy your wedding morning knowing exactly how the finished look will be.
No one wants to walk down the aisle not looking or feeling like themselves so my main importance is that you feel the best version of you. We are all different, some people love makeup and wear it everyday, for others it can be a daunting prospect. That’s where I come in, even if you don’t wear a lot of makeup on a day to day basis you may still be wanting help and advice from me on how you can achieve a naturally beautiful makeup for your wedding day. I offer a service for each individual bride, I want to create your dream bridal look!
I recommend arranging your trial 6-8 weeks before your Wedding. Trials usually take place in my studio in Ponteland, however I am able to travel to you on request*. I often get asked for trial appointments on Fridays and Saturdays, I can’t accommodate this as these are my busiest days for wedding bookings. Trials need to take place during daylight hours – its so important to see your makeup in natural light. Its helpful if you bring along pictures of your dress, we will talk about the style of your dress, colours of your Bridesmaid dresses, flowers, veil and any accessories you are planning to have in your hair. I also recommend bringing along a couple of images of hair and make up styles you have seen that you like. Together we can then work to create your perfect look. Oh, and don’t forget to wear your everyday makeup!
I get just as excited as you do about your big day and I absolutely LOVE talking about your ideas and plans. Feel free to ask my advice, show me your ideas – anytime!
Your Wedding Day…..
I am very organised and hopefully that will fill you with confidence. I will prepare a schedule prior to the big day – I like to ensure that everyone will be ready with plenty of time to spare. I am a happy, friendly, relaxed gal and I shall arrive with my kit and directors chair and, if its an early start – I will have plenty coffee on board! I usually aim to have everyone ready at least 45 minutes before you need to be so there is plenty of time for photos and family time and I am even happy to stay for those last minute for touch ups.
For larger Wedding party’s I am assisted by members of my team, experienced Hair and Makeup Artists who have been handpicked by me. They share my love of creating naturally beautiful, cruelty free hair and makeup
Essentially you’ll only do this once and It’s really important to me that you feel happy and confident every step of the way – feel free to ask me anything. I will always be as helpful as I can.
