Birmingham Bridal makeup artist Trial information

Trial Information

We get together before the wedding day and have a full consultation discussing the look you'd like created on your wedding day. We'll go through all your likes/dislikes and design a look together that you feel comfortable with and will photograph beautifully. Its always a good idea if you can combine the date of your makeup trial along with a dress fitting or your hair trial so you can see how it all looks together.

Trial sessions can last in between 1-2 hours so we have enough time to try as many looks as you like. I want my brides to be completely happy and satisfied with how they look and feel. Sessions normally take place at my base in Birmingham but I can come to you if that's easier.

 

We start by exploring the theme of your wedding - whether that be a more relaxed boho vibe or more romantic country chic- this can guide the style of the makeup. Mood boards are a great way to pull together all the colours and styles you like for inspiration. If you have any pictures of your dress / hair styles then feel free to bring them along.  We'll go through your current makeup and skincare routine and discuss your favourites. If you come wearing your day makeup that's a great for me to see what type of thing you're used to. If you've discovered any holy grail products then feel free to bring them along to incorporate into the look. 

 

I only use premium beauty ranges such as Charlotte Tilbury, Chanel and Bobbi Brown & MAC which have been chosen for their innovative products and staying power, perfect for bridal makeup. Then the makeup's yours to wear for the day and roadtest - a great opportunity to be taken out for dinner in the evening all glammed up rather than going home or doing a big-shop! I note down all the products used and take photos so I can recreate the look again on the big day. We finish with a discussion of timings for the morning and any makeup requirements for bridal party members.
