Do you offer trials?

I absolutely offer trials. They are very important in the process of Bridal makeup. They usually take place at my studio, a couple of months before the wedding date, however this can be flexible if you require it to be sooner or later.

How far in advance should I book a trial?

You should ideally book your package with me as soon as you know your wedding date, bridal party numbers and venue. This is to ensure that I will be able to have availability for your actual wedding day as well as a trial.

How far do you travel?

I can potentially travel anywhere, within reason. For example, I travelled 2 hours to a venue to makeup a Bride and her Bridesmaids earlier this year.

Do you offer any packages?

I offer a discount of 10% off the total quote for Brides booking via this website.

How much time do you need on my wedding day?

On your wedding day, I like to allow approximately 45-60 minutes per person for makeup.

Can you stay for the service and evening?

I could potentially stay, however, it would not be necessary as the makeup I apply together with the techniques used will last all day. I can return later on to do a freshen up of the look if required, at an additional fee.

Do you offer hair/makeup for the mother of the bride/groom?

Yes, I offer makeup for the mother of the bride and mother of the groom. It is at a slightly discounted price too as they tend not to want as much, and go for a more natural look which therefore takes me less time.

Do you offer hair/makeup for junior bridesmaids/flower girls?

I offer makeup for junior bridesmaids which would be age appropriate - for example, some lipgloss and a bit of blusher. The same applies to flower girls. These makeups would not be full face makeups.

Can you teach me how to do my own makeup?

Yes, I offer makeup lessons where I can teach you how to apply a look and also which products you would need to do so. I have done this before with a bride who got married in France and I couldn't fly with her at that time.

Do you offer airbrush makeup?

I am qualified in airbrush makeup but currently I apply my client's makeup in a traditional way.

What brands do you use?

I use many different brands to suit as many clients as possible. These include; Illamasqua, Too Faced, Bellapierre, CYO, Tarte, Eyeko, Urban Decay, Becca, Ardell and many more! I have added quite a few to my website for client's information.

Do you use cruelty-free brands?

All of the makeup I purchase is cruelty-free. I have a list on my facebook page of brands that are currently CF and a list of those that arent. I do not support any brands that test on animals either themselves or via a third party.

What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept cash, paypal, bank transfers and also card payments.
