FAQ

 
 

How do I secure my booking with you?

I require a £50 deposit to secure your wedding date in my diary. This is non-refundable against cancellation. This is then deducted from the wedding day balance due 2 weeks before the wedding.
 

What is Airbrushing?

Airbrushing is a foundation which was designed when the new High Definition cameras came out, it is normally used for television and media work because you cant see the foundation obviously and it has a flawless appearance. This technique involves applying your makeup via an airbrush to give a flawless and weightless finish. Airbase is a silicone based airbrush foundation, perfect for a flawless bridal makeover that lasts all day. Airbase gives a natural finish, still offering complete coverage, whilst allowing your skin to breathe. It’s packed full of vitamins A and E to nourish your skin, suitable for sensitive skin and can be mixed to the perfect colour match. If you have problem skin or acne Airbrushing is usually the best option.

What is the maximum amount of people i can book you to do

A second stylist may be required from my team if the booking is for a large bridal party (i.e six bridemaids +) and it also depends on the time your bridal party needs to be ready for and if you are booking for both hair and make up.
 

can i book you for hair only

You can book hair alongside make up for the bride or hair only for bridesmaids/mother of the bride. I don't take bookings for hair only.

When should I wash my hair before the wedding

For an updo I recommend you wash it at least one day before. This helps the style to stay in for longer and take a better hold of the hairstyle. If you are having it down and curly or half up half dowm then its ok to wash it the night before or even on the day.
 

I am thinking of having a spray tan for the wedding. Should I COME TO the trial wITH A TAN

Yes thats a great idea but don't worry too much as I will always match your skin colour on the day. It can help though to have the tan done so the lip colour and blusher etc contrast appropriately with your tan colour.

I am looking for a make up artist for a non bridal booking (special occasion/shoot/etc) do you only do weddings?
