Are you looking for a makeup artist for your Wedding makeup? Congratulations on your engagement! Whether it be a huge siesta filled celebration, or a small romantic elopement, every wedding is important and special. I have put together a little list of FAQ’s when considering wedding makeup for your special day.
How do I book you for my wedding makeup?
First contact me and see if I am available on your wedding day! If I am, wonderful I would love to be your wedding makeup artist. Next step is we will organise a trial. I will place a temporary hold on your wedding date until we have had your trial.
Do you do hair?
I don’t do hair as I specialise 100% in makeup only. But I know hairdressers and hairstylists and can pass their details onto you.
When should I have my wedding makeup trial?
Roughly three months before your wedding is a good time for a makeup trial. I recommend my brides book their trials earlier in the day so we can spend the morning together creating your look and then you can test the longevity of your makeup.
Do I have to have a trial?
A bridal makeup trial is not absolutely necessary, but it is preferred. It lets you see how the makeup will look on your special day so there are no surprises. At the trial we focus on perfecting one look. If you want to trial two different looks (i.e. a Smokey eye for one and a natural eye for a second) it’s recommend you book two separate trials.
Does my whole bridal party need a trial?
No they don’t have to have one unless you would like them to. I always allow time on your wedding day to discuss the look you would like for your bridal party.
Great I loved my makeup trial! What next?
After your wedding makeup trial I will email you your booking forms and deposit details for you to fill out and send back to me. We will also discuss timing for your special day. Only one wedding per day is booked, on a first come first served basis and with the confirmation of a deposit
Do I need touch up products?
I usually recommend my brides and bridal party to have their lip color to touch up with so they can re-apply as needed to keep you looking flawless in all your photos. A powder is also a good idea for those prone to getting shiny (or those getting married in the middle of summer). We will discuss all this at your trial. I have written a little more about products here.
I’m having a big bridal party! Will we have to start makeup at 4am??
I work alone for wedding parties requiring makeup for five people and under. For wedding parties of 6+ I know an amazingly talented bunch of makeup artists in Perth whom I work closely with. Together we can work makeup magic together on your day at no extra charge to speed up your morning because who doesn’t like a bit more of a sleep in.
