HOW DOES MY FREE BRIDAL TRIAL WORK?
Free bridal trials are only available if you come to us in the Dutch Quarter. They must be booked in advance and are for the bride only, others such as bridesmaids would incur a charge of £30 per person. You are under no obligation to book after having a free trial please see F.A.Q.
CAN YOU COME TO ME?
Yes, we are happy to travel to you. This service is charged at £60 for the bride and £30 per person thereafter. Charges may vary for areas not local to Colchester.
WHICH AREAS DO YOU COVER?
We are based in Colchester, but cover most areas in Essex, Kent and London. However as I’m sure you have seen in the gallery we have done makeup all over world, from Bournemouth to Ibiza and even Australia.
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE BRIDAL TRIAL AND WHAT TO EXPECT?
A makeup trial is all about designing the look you want to achieve. Some clients will bring in photos and know exactly what they would like and others would like me to show them with different looks based on my knowledge, wedding themes etc. It is a chance for you to basically have a practice so everything is perfect on your big day.
HOW DO I BOOK MY TRIAL?
Please book via the phone numbers, email or Facebook details as advertised on this website.
DO I HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
After your trial if you choose to have your makeup done on the day we would require a £50 deposit to secure your date.
DO YOU GIVE A DISCOUNT FOR GROUP BOOKINGS?
Yes, please contact us with details of your event for group discount bookings.
*this also applies for student discount for the Summer Ball, Prom & Graduation.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON MY ACTUAL WEDDING DAY AND CAN YOU STAY AFTER THE CEREMONY?
Once agreed on arrival time and how much time we would need to get everyone’s makeup done, I will come to where you will be getting ready and work around you and your hair stylist etc. Once everyone’s makeup is finished I charge £40 per hour after this (outfit change, makeup alterations and touch ups).
I AM NOT USED TO WEARING MUCH / ANY MAKEUP AND AM NERVOUS ABOUT MY BRIDIAL TRIAL / EVENT MAKEOVER?
We have worked in makeup for many years and have had so many clients with so many different looks. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable. Your makeup trial is your chance to tell us what you would like, we will give our opinion on what we think suits you, but remember it’s all about you.
If you want more have more, if you want less have less. It is not like a haircut that’s too short; if it’s too much for your tastes then we can remove it and look at something lighter. There really is nothing to worry about.
