FAQ/Recommendations

Do you do hair too?

This is the question I get asked the most. Unfortunately no, I do not do hair, I can straighten and put my hair in a ponytail and that’s about it hehe! However, I can recommend some amazing mobile hairstylists:

What makeup do you use?

I carry a wide range and whilst I do have my favourites, as an artist my kit is always changing to keep up with current trends and product releases. Some brands that I carry in my case include Bobbi Brown, Nars, Smashbox, Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury, and Benefit. This can be viewed in more detail in my gallery.

Do I need a bridal makeup trial?

Yes! All brides are required to have a makeup trial. It is essential for you to feel comfortable and happy in the makeup look for your wedding day. The trial allows you to wear the makeup all day to see how it lasts, sit on your skin and see how it looks in different lights. Also, I like to discuss many aspects of the day with you to help create your makeup look and assist with any concerns regarding your skincare and makeup.

When should I arrange my makeup trial for?

I recommend to have a makeup trial 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding date, if you have a particular date in mind please get in contact and I will try my best to organise this.

What do I do if I do not know what I would like regarding my makeup look?

I would recommend looking through magazines, Pinterest is a great website for all things weddings! Also, have a look through my gallery and select styles that you like. I will be able to go through these with you and create your bespoke makeup look.

How far in advance should I book?

As soon as possible! I have taken bookings two years in advance and sometimes as little as a month in advance. The average booking timeframe is around 8-10 months prior to your event.

How long will it take on my wedding day?

I allow three-quarters of an hour to an hour per person in the bridal party, with a little extra time for the bride. I also ask each bridal party member to return before I go to add finishing touches (powder and lip products), this is regarding larger bridal parties. However, timings will be discussed at the makeup trial and confirmed nearer the time.

How do I secure my booking with you?

I must stress makeup services are booked on a first come, first reserve basis. In order to reserve your date, I require a signed agreement and a booking retainer fee, this amount will be confirmed with a quote through email. Once both the signed agreement and retainer are received, your date will be reserved. The retainer is non-refundable.

Enquiries do not reserve your date, therefore I recommend reserving your date as early as possible!
