Frequently Asked Questions

What services do you offer for brides?

I specialize in bridal makeup, offering personalized makeup services for brides and bridal parties to help you look and feel amazing. My services include bridal makeup previews, wedding day makeup application, bridesmaid and guest makeup, and touch-up services.

How far in advance should I book your services for my wedding?

The sooner the better. I recommend booking your makeup artist as early as possible to secure your date. I would advise booking at least 6-24 months in advance, especially for popular wedding dates during peak seasons. Lets secure your spot in my calendar!

Do you offer makeup previews and are they included in the package?

Yes, previews are included in my package and are compulsory for the bride so we can really get to know each other, have an in-depth consultation, and ensure we create a bespoke look perfectly suited for you on your wedding day. Other bridal party members are welcome to have a preview, subject to availability and will incur an additional fee.

Can I bring my bridal party along for my makeup preview?

Ideally not as this can be a case of ‘too many cooks spill the broth’. While I understand the input of your bridal party is incredibly valuable, your preview is all about YOU and your vision, it is your time to shine! Having your bridal squad there may lead to conflicting opinions and input, this can not only take up valuable time, but can leave the bride (and makeup artist) feeling confused and overwhelmed and can lead to an unsuccessful preview. I want to be able to connect with you and provide you with my undivided attention and top-quality service.

What makeup products do you use?

Only the best for my brides, I use high-end, professional makeup products from reputable brands such as Charlotte Tilbury / NARS / Vieve / Makeup by Mario / Hourglass / Dior / YSL / Georgio Armani / Glossier (to name a few) to create high-end flawless and long-lasting applications.

How long does the bridal makeup application take on the wedding day?

The duration of the bridal makeup application depends on the complexity of the desired look. On average, I like to allocate 1 hour per person.

Do you have a minimum/maximum number of people?

I can accommodate smaller, intimate bridal parties but the minimum price still applies. The maximum I can accommodate is usually 6 but depending on location and start time I may be able to accommodate more.  For larger bridal parties, I am happy to recommend or arrange a 2nd MUA.

What should I do to prepare my skin for the makeup application?

Healthy, happy skin equals a flawless makeup application. If you have any skin concerns, I would advise contacting a skin care specialist to help you achieve a flawless base to work with.  For normal skin types, keeping your skin hydrated and exfoliated will help to achieve a great result. Always avoid excess sun exposure.

I am happy to connect you with some skin care experts if required.

What is your cancellation policy?

I understand that unexpected situations may arise. Please refer to my terms and conditions or contact me directly to discuss my cancellation policy and any potential rescheduling options. In the unlikely event of me having to cancel, you will be fully refunded.
