Frequently Asked Questions
Should I wear makeup to my appointment?
If your appointment is for occasion makeup then please come makeup free if possible. For bridal trials it is really useful if you come to your appointment with your makeup how you normally wear it or how you would do it if you were doing your own for your wedding. This helps me to see the level of makeup you are comfortable with and the kind of colours and look you would naturally wear. If you are planning to have a spray tan on your wedding day it would be useful to also have one for your trial as this can have an impact on the overall look you would like to achieve.
How long does makeup take?
An appointment is around 1 hour but can take up to 1 hour 30 minutes depending on the required look.
A bridal trial can take up to 2 hours as I will be trying out different colours and styles until you are happy with the final look. On the day of your wedding I will advise you of timings for the whole bridal party to ensure everyone is ready on time. I always allow extra time for any surprise events, visitors, deliveries etc that may happen on the day and will stay around to do any touch ups once you are dressed.
Do I need to have a wedding trial?
I would always strongly advise booking a trial for your wedding for us to discuss ideas and help you decide on the look you would like to achieve. Trials can be held at anytime prior to your wedding and can take up to 2 hours. Please bring along any pictures or inspiration you have. It is also useful to see your colour scheme, flowers, dresses etc to get a feel for the overall 'theme' off the wedding. Trials will be scheduled for a time and date that suits both parties.
Do you do wedding hair?
At the moment I only provide makeup services however I have worked alongside a number of very talented bridal hairdressers who I can recommend.
How far do you travel?
For weddings I will consider travelling to any location. For weddings 20 miles of travel from TW16 is included in your booking. Distance on top of this will be charged at 40p per mile (return journey). Any public transport costs, congestion and parking charges must be paid by the client. All travel calculations and costs will be made clear at time of enquiry/booking. For local bookings I charge a flat £5 travel/call out fee.. any further and travel costs will be calculated and discussed at the time of booking.
Do you do Special Offers?
I often run special offers which I advertise on my social media. (links at bottom of the page) Alternatively you can contact me for more information.
