What to expect from your makeup trial?
Your makeup trial is the perfect opportunity for us to get to know each other, discuss any ideas that you may have and try out your wedding day makeup look.
You're probably wondering what to expect, which is why I've compiled this blog post with some info and tips on how to prepare for your trial along with some skincare advice leading up to the big day...
So, what can you expect on the day of your trial?
I will be travelling to your home (or location of your choice) so I kindly request that you provide a suitable area for us to get creating from. Natural daylight is always best when working with makeup, so a nice bright room or a table near to a window will be absolutely perfect!
I encourage you to wear something to your trial in a similar colour and neckline as your wedding day outfit, this will really help us to visualise how your makeup will look on the day!
Get pinning that makeup inspo!
I love to see your inspiration for your look so please do come armed with images of styles you would like to try. If you haven't already, it's worth creating a Pinterest board for your makeup look.
Do show me photos of your dress or wedding outfit and anything else that will help us to imagine how the final look will come together (hairstyle, veil, accessories, do you have a theme..?)
The trial usually takes up to 2 hours. If you’d like to try more looks that would take us over these times I would recommend we book in a second trial.
Up your skincare game... NOW!
A solid skincare routine will help to create the best possible base for your wedding day makeup, and there's no time like the present to start!
As a minimum I would suggest the following morning and evening routines to get your skin in top shape. If you haven't already, I highly recommend reading Caroline Hirons book ‘Skincare’ and checking out her Instagram, Blog and Facebook group for a fountain of skincare knowledge.
By no means am I a dermatologist, so if you have any skin concerns such as acne or rosacea, I would suggest getting this checked out by your doctor.
