What to expect at a Bridal make-up trial...

Posted on February 26, 2019 at 11:10 AM

Hands down, make-up is my favourite service that I offer!! Having a career where an aspect of your job is make-up shopping…#livingthedream

But not everyone feels the same way about make-up, many people shy away from it. Make-up can change your appearance, or enhance your natural beauty, the choice is yours! That’s what your bridal make-up trial is for.

We start the trial by discussing what you would usually wear every day for make-up, and how you would ‘glam it up’ for a night out or special occasion. It also helps to see pictures of how you usually wear your make-up, and styles of make-up you like.

Obviously the colour scheme to your wedding day is very important; you need colours that complement one another. One of my very early brides always wore purple eyeshadow, and was insisting on the same shade for her wedding day…with the bridesmaids in red and roses to match in her bouquet it wasn’t advisable, so we found a happy middle ground! A smoky green eyeshadow to enhance her hazel eyes meant she was not clashing with her colour scheme.

We evaluate your skin type and discuss which products would suit you best for a long lasting flawless finish. From high definition Airbrush foundation, to a full cover matt or dewy finish, or a light sheer foundation to even skin tone, your comfort is essential. Some ladies are used to wearing a heavy foundation; others hate the feeling of product on their skin. At the trial you may choose to try a product you are not used to using, if you decide by the wedding day that you want to change that, it’s absolutely fine. I would rather you try and decide against it, then try on your wedding day and feel uncomfortable.

In my opinion eyes should always be captivating (especially as that is where your husband-to-be will be looking when he vows to spend the rest of his life loving you), whether the natural, glamorous or smoky look, your eyes should be your main focus! With all my make-up application, I like to start off light so that we can build on the look together. With lashes and eyeliners a plenty; together we create eyes to memorise!

Finishing the look with a glow in the cheeks and the perfect pout, you will be shown the ‘draft’ of your bridal makeup. Then with the mirror in your hand, we evaluate each step and make any necessary changes. You want to see the best possible polished version of yourself in the mirror looking back at you…not a complete stranger!

Once the look is complete we have a chat about changes you might like to make to strengthen the look before your evening guests arrive (I will be soon offering a service to my brides where I return to alter the make-up for the evening, this seems to be increasingly popular with bridal make-up nowadays). Also one of the key aspects is how to look after your skin leading up to your wedding day, to ensure it is in tip top condition. From recommending products, to facials, to ‘what not to do’ in the final days before you say ‘I Do!’

What we create at your trial is not set in stone, changes can be made. I always colour match you on the wedding day under natural light and check everything with you before we get started. The majority of the time the bride decides she was a smokier eye, or a lighter or heavier lash, or a little more blush, this is completely normal, it’s why you have a trial, so that on the wedding day you can be rest assured you are picture perfect!

I want to show appreciation to this writer for rescuing me from this particular issue. Because of exploring through the the net and meeting opinions that were not beneficial, I thought my entire life was done. Existing devoid of the answers to the problems you have solved as a result of your main short post is a crucial case, as well as the kind that would have in a wrong way affected my career if I hadn't noticed your web blog. The ability and kindness in playing with every part was tremendous. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't come across such a step like this. I'm able to at this moment look forward to my future. Thank you so much for this specialized and results-oriented guide. I will not be reluctant to propose the blog to anyone who will need direction on this subject.

I wish to show appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from such a situation. After exploring throughout the the web and getting advice which were not productive, I assumed my life was over. Being alive without the presence of answers to the difficulties you have solved through the report is a critical case, as well as the ones which might have badly damaged my entire career if I had not come across your blog post. Your own understanding and kindness in touching all the details was very useful. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't come across such a stuff like this. It's possible to at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for this specialized and sensible help. I won't be reluctant to suggest your blog to anyone who should have counselling about this subject.

I would like to show my appreciation to you just for bailing me out of this scenario. After surfing around through the search engines and finding solutions which are not helpful, I thought my life was well over. Living minus the approaches to the problems you've sorted out as a result of your main guide is a serious case, and those which could have badly damaged my career if I hadn't noticed your blog. The mastery and kindness in controlling every item was excellent. I'm not sure what I would've done if I had not come upon such a solution like this. I am able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for this professional and amazing help. I won't be reluctant to suggest the blog to any individual who would like recommendations about this area.
