[fusion_text]With all eyes on you for the big day, it’s not surprising that you probably feel slightly nervous so looking and feeling your best is crucial, and your makeup trial is time to ensure you will do exactly that.
It is always a good idea to have an idea/look in mind for your trial.
If you want something very natural with minimum make up or if you would like a more glam look please let me know on the day of your trial.
This will help me to visualise what you would like and make sure we are both on the same page!
You may say natural but want false lashes at the same time.
Rather than describing what you want as “smokey” or “natural” and using words that might be interpreted differently, you should start by telling me which features you want to accentuate and/or play down.
For example, you can say that you want your eyes to pop, and I may recommend a more dramatic eye and neutral face and lips. Try to be as specific as possible in your verbal descriptions.
Try looking in bridal magazines and on the internet for up to date bridal looks. Feel free to bring pictures with you to the trial.
Also share details of your everyday makeup looks and signature styles. For example I wear liquid eyeliner on my eyelids EVERYDAY and would not be seen dead on my wedding day without if. If you have a similar trait, let me know as you need to feel like you on your wedding day.
You may have also seen an image on my website of a past bride that I have worked on that you liked.
When the time comes for you to finally look at the results of your trial, remember to be honest – if you don’t like it, if there are things you want to change, now is the time to speak up.
Remember this is the trial and the time to get it right before the big day.
This may sound obvious but many brides will be too polite and won’t say exactly what they think.
As a makeup artist I never get offended and take complete pride in client satisfaction no matter how long it takes to get there.
I can usually tell when a bride is truly happy with the results when they look in the mirror, so you may as well be honest and get it right while you have the time.
I always suggest starting off with a natural look, checking the make up in the mirror and gradually adding to the make up until we get the look that you want to achieve.
Pre trial advice:
Drinking lots of water pre-wedding, keeping your lips moisturised, going somewhere decent to have your brows shaped and having a couple of facials are all going to help you look your best. You’re aiming for a great canvas that we can further enhance.
