FAQs

What deposit do you require?

Dependant on the size of the booking. Usually the deposit is £50, paid after the trial once I know you are completely happy with everything. (Currently not taking deposits due to covid, it's just easier for everyone!)

How long does a trial take?

2 hours. We can look through your pinterest, any looks you like, colours you love, things you hate. You will leave with a complete face chart of all products used, and any other recommendations from me. BUT the trial isn't just to find a look that suits you, but also for us to get well acquainted. I want you to feel comfortable with me :)

Where/when do the trials take place?

I will come to you for the trial. (Travel charges may apply) I usually say do the trial when you are due an evening out, or when you know your friends/family will be around so you can show them the finished look! I've done trials on the day of the hen party before - all the bridesmaids had theirs done too! I would say the trial should be done 4-3 months before the big day. You can also book multiple trials, if you want to try a few different things.

Do I need to bring anything for the trial?

WEAR A WHITE/IVORY TOP - It makes all the difference! I'd say some photos of makeup you like always helps! If you are allergic to anything please also let me know. Bring a friend! Or your mum. Also - bring your opinion! If you do not like something I am very open - TELL ME :)!

What is your cancellation policy?

In the unfortunate event you decide not to use me for your big day, this is something that would come up after the trial. This is why I don't accept a deposit until I know you are 100% happy with everything. If you pay the £50 deposit to secure your date, and later decide not to go ahead the deposit is non refundable. I don't take a deposit for the trial, if you cancel or want to rearrange that is fine :)

When do your require final payment?

2 weeks to 2 days before. I don't like dealing with money on the day, I find it unprofessional and just another thing you will need to remember!

How long do you need on the wedding day?

Bride - 1 hour Bridesmaids 30 - 45 mins Mothers - 30 mins Flower girls - 5 mins *Please note, I also freshen everyone up before I leave. Lips, powder, setting spray! Depending on the booking size as to how long but usually just a couple of minutes with each person!* I will make a schedule to follow for the day so we know where we are up too.

What additional services do your offer?

Charlotte Tilbury do this amazing product called 'Supermodel Body' which is a very soft glowy shimmer body cream. Google it! Its gorgeous and doesn't transfer. I don't charge extra for things like this, it's just always in my kit and a gorgeous little add on to complete your look!
