As a bride to be, your makeup trial is essential when planning your bridal look and I always insist on trial runs with my brides. The trial is a key part of the process that will give you the confidence in having the perfect wedding day.
Please see my answers to my most asked questions about what happens when you book a trial.
WHAT IS A TRIAL RUN?
A trial run is when you meet with a bridal makeup artist to find out if you're compatible and to try and find your perfect bridal look that you absolutely love.
HOW LONG SHOULD I ALLOW FOR MY TRIAL?
I don't have a time limit on any of my trials but as a rough guide I'd allow at least 2 hours your bridal makeup trial.
I always complete your full bridal makeup, including individual lashes so you can see exactly what the finished look will be.
HOW SHOULD I ARRIVE AT THE TRIAL?
It can be really helpful if a bride turns up with her regular makeup on as it gives me an idea of what she looks like everyday and what amount of makeup she is comfortable with.
SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING WITH ME?
Please bring images of the dress with you and any other images that give me a feel of your wedding and what the overall feel is.
Most of my brides- if not all of them have created bridal inspiration boards on pinterest, this is a great place to collect makeup images which you can then show me on the day or share with me in advance. Please check out my PINTEREST account for inspirational images.
WHAT SHOULD I DO NEXT?
Once your trial is finished, there is no need to book there and then, although a lot of brides-to-be do like to put down their deposit right away to secure their date.
I will hold your wedding date for 3 days after the trial, you can take as much time as you need to decide but try and book as soon as you can to avoid disappointment.
