As a wedding make up and hair artist, I do a fair few trials each week...
These range from brides knowing exactly what they want to brides having absolutely no idea. Both of these are totally fine and most make-up artists will arrive armed with tonnes of ideas as to what might suit you. However, nobody is perfect and even professional wedding make up artists can get it wrong sometimes.
When booking a hair or make-up artist for your wedding, it’s a good idea to come with some ideas of what you may like. Pinterest is great for hunting for new styles and images, also google and the latest magazines. Your artist or stylist will be more than happy for you to send images of what you like so don’t be afraid to send them!
It is so important to have a trial before your day. Not only is it a great chance to meet the person that will be making you over on your wedding morning, but you will also be able to experiment with different ideas and colours way more than you will on the day of your wedding.
The main point to remember is; please don’t be afraid to say what you really think. Make-up artists and hair stylists are there to make you look and feel great and unless you tell us, we will never know whether you are happy.
A good make-up artist or hair stylist will ask plenty of questions and try to find out whether you are totally happy but it is so important that you let us know. We are more than happy to make as many tweaks as you need to get it looking perfect.
We are professionals and while we have our own opinions on what looks best, you know your skin tone and what suits you more than us so please don’t be afraid to speak up.
Nothing makes us happier than to have our bride tell us how good we are and how happy they were, so personally, I would rather spend 3 hours with my bride making sure she feels as beautiful as she looks than have her go away unhappy.
In the end, this is your special moment and we are here to help you look fantastic on route to the aisle. So sit back, relax, tell us what you want and let us make it come to life for you!
