My wedding day prices include a choice of HD Airbrush or Premium branded makeup. I will endevour to help you to chose the correct option for you, taking into account factors such as skin type, coverage and finish required.
Bridal Consultation and Trial
My in depth bridal trial and consultation takes around 1.5 to 2 hours. It includes full makeup with either traditional or HD airbrush foundation and also the additional option
of false eyelash application.
I feel it is important for me to have a global understanding of your wedding day, so that we can create a makeup that will compliment you, and your day as a whole.
My main aim is to work with a bride to achieve a look that is both photogenic and also great face to face.
I believe that on her wedding day a bride should look like herself, but at her most beautiful!
List of things to bring to your trial:
examples of your colourscheme eg. fabric samples, pictures of your flowers and bridesmaids dresses
pictures of your dress
pictures from your hair trial (if this has already been completed)
images from Pinterest or similar of makeup styles that you like
a cream or white top to wear during the trial, to correspond with the colour of your dress.
£40.00 Bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and groom, guests
Trials take place at my home address in Maidstone, Kent.
I offer the option of false eyelashes (either strips or individual clusters), to optimise photographic appearence and enhance the shape of the eye, for an additional £10.00 per person, or £15.00 per person for luxury mink style lashes.
Makeup on the Wedding Day
I am lucky enough to have experience in working from many different and fabulous venues, and also frequently from client's houses. No space is too big or too small, but for best results it's lovely to have a room with plenty of natural daylight.
I can arrive as early as you like on your day, and where possible I aim to finish 1 hour before you are due to leave- to allow you time to change into your dress, possibly have a few images taken, and in most cases enjoy a well deserved glass of Prosecco!
Timings are dependant on style of makeup, but as a general rule I like to allow 1 hour for bridal makeup and 45 minutes each for other members of the wedding party. An additional 10 minutes per person may be needed if I am to be working with cluster lashes.
I am also able to bring along an assistant artist for larger wedding parties, to reduce preparation time if needed, and in most cases at no additional charge.
My wedding day makeup includes travel to within 20 miles of my home in Maidstone, Kent (ME15 9AL).
For weddings over this distance, a small additional charge of 40 pence per mile will be added each way, and for weddings exceeding 75 miles away I request overnight accomodation.
I am also available for destination weddings- prices upon request!
