Can you come to my hotel room?
Unfortunatley as I no longer travel to clients I will not be able to travel to your hotel room for your appointment.
Should I have a trial?
If you have a big event coming up such as a formal, birthday or particular special occasion it is completely up to you to get a trial. For weddings, I would most definitely recommend a trial prior to the event. Trials are an important time to deconstruct the look you want to achieve, making sure every element perfectly emphasises your beautiful features. We will get a sense of the harmony of the look in relation to your hair, dress, theme and personal style. It is also a great opportunity to meet to ensure you are comfortable on your big day.
What do I bring to my trial?
- Plenty of images of makeup inspiration as well as images of your everyday makeup
- Please wear clothing similar to the colours on the day of your event (It helps!)
- Any other material that demonstrate the style/theme of your wedding/event
What do I wear to my booking?
Please wear a button up/zip shirt or jumper to avoid pulling it over your face which may alter/damage your makeup. Please do not wear the clothing you will be wearing to the event in the unlikely case that a mascara wand is dropped or product spills. If you would like contouring/highlighting on your chest, shoulders and collarbones I suggest wearing a strapless top to your appointment.
Do you require a deposit?
No I do not require a deposit at this time. PLEASE inform me at least 24 hours prior to your appointment if you must cancel. Failure to do so may result in a cancellation fee and/or inability to book an appointment in the future.
How can I prepare for my booking?
1 week before - Have any facial waxing/threading done to avoid irritated skin/patches.
1 night prior - Use a gentle facial scrub to exfoliate and apply plenty of moisturiser.
30 mins prior - Cleanse face and do NOT apply any lotions. Please tie your hair back and arrive to your appointment promptly to avoid having time cut short.
What about allergies/skin conditions?
PLEASE contact me prior to your appointment if you have any kind of allergies/sensitivities. If you are having any conditions such as rashes, conjunctivitis, cold sores, warts or infections you MUST let me know. It is your responsibility to tell me if there is anything I cannot visibly see, including a cold/flu. I may be able to work around some conditions but anything severe I would NOT recommend having your makeup done.
Thanks so much for reading! If you have any further questions please contact me.
