THE WEDDING MAKEUP SERVICE
How it works…
Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. No doubt you will engage a photographer and maybe a videographer to capture the events of the day. A professional makeup designed by me will enhance your best features and will give you a natural, glowing complexion. You will feel confident, relaxed and camera ready!
After your initial enquiry, I like to have a chat on the phone to hear all about your makeup ideas and exciting wedding plans.
I then suggest you send me any makeup ideas you have ( Pinterest is a good source of inspiration) photos of you, your dress, bridesmaids dresses, hair styles and flowers. This helps me to understand the unique style of your wedding.
The trial takes place at my home studio in Tunbridge Wells and takes approximately 2/3 hours. Once we have created your perfect wedding look, I will take photos of you and record a smudge chart.
I will discuss timings for you and the bridal party and plan a schedule. Wear a light top to reflect the wedding dress if possible.
ON THE DAY
On the day I will travel to you with my makeup chair and set up ideally in front of a window for natural daylight. I will look after the bride and all bridal party members, doing final checks before you leave for the Ceremony.
For larger bridal parties I will bring my experienced team members with me.

What makeup brands do you use?
I use quality premium cosmetic brands including Estee Lauder, Laura Mercier, She Uemura, Becca, Urban Decay, Tarte, By Terry, Youngblood Mineral, Charlotte Tilbury, Delilah.
When should I book?
Please feel free to book as early as possible to secure your date. Once booked we can then book your trial approximately 2/3 months prior to your wedding, or earlier if you prefer.
Do I need to bring anything for the trial?
For the trial feel free to bring along any favourite makeup items, photos of your dress, photo of you, makeup ideas, hair ideas, bridesmaids dresses, flowers or you can send them in advance. This will help me build a picture of the unique style of your wedding. If possible wear a light coloured top.
How long will it take at the trial and on the day?
The trial takes approximately 2/3 hours ( longer for extra bridal party members ) I advise doing only up to 2 people at the trial as there would be a lot of waiting for the third person.
On the wedding day I allocate an hour per person.
How many people can you do?
I can do up to 5 bridal party members including the bride, any more and I will bring one of my skilled team members.
Will my makeup last?
Premium brands often contain higher pigment levels for longevity. The use of primers, long lasting formulas and a final spray of makeup fixer all help the durability of your makeup. However, I do recommend keeping some products to hand throughout the day for touch ups such as your lipstick and powder. I also offer an all day and evening service to ensure you look perfect throughout your entire wedding, please ask.
