Bridal Trial Day!

Your bridal trial is a very special day! It’s a time where we can chat and create the perfect makeup look you have imagined for yourself! If you feel nervous, please don’t be! I myself know how hard it can be to decide what makeup look you want for your Wedding Day but together we will chat through style, colour and product and come up with something special to suit you!

Whether that be a glamorous or natural style both are achievable and both are beautiful!

Try to imagine how you want to look on your big day! It can be inspiring to look online and in bridal magazines, to maybe create a mood board that will include your colour scheme and wedding day style?!

I’ve listed some steps you can take before your bridal trial below, all of which will help us create the perfect makeup for your special day!

  • Skincare, I’m sure you know that if you have a healthy skin complexion your makeup will sit so much better and look more flawless. I recommend booking a consultation with a skin specialist in your area. They can tailor a skin regimen to your needs!On the other hand if you are already in a good place with you skincare routine and you are happy with your skin – kept it up! Like the saying goes “ if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.

• On the day of your trial if you can please come along makeup free. This way we won’t use up valuable time removing makeup or irritating your skin.

• If you are planning on wearing false tan on your wedding day I recommend that you wear it for your bridal trial. This doesn’t have to be your professional tan , a little self tanner will be perfect if that is what suit’s at the time. This way you can see what the colour tone will look like on the day.

• Having brows or any facial waxing/ threading is advised at least 48hours beforehand, again if your trial is close to your wedding date don’t worry if it isn’t done. However having it done again will give us a better canvas for blending makeup.

• Client Care is very important to me so if you can please let me know if you have any allergies e.g. Latex (latex can be found in some eyelash glue’s)

• Also If you are a contact wearer please let me know so I can be gentle and cautious of the eye area.

  • It can be a lovely idea to wear white to your bridal trial, wearing pattern or bold colours can sometimes overpower the makeup. By wearing a neutral colour palette it will let subtle colours in your eyeshadow, blush and lipstick shine through!

Your bridal trial is a time where we can chat openly and easily about your wedding day makeup. A time to be enjoyed so get excited!

Until next time,

Much love,

Some thing’s to consider when choosing your Wedding Day Lipstick ♡

For some Bride’s, choosing their Wedding Day Lipstick will be their most thought about element of their bridal makeup. 

Often in bridal magazines and on  website’s it will list endless amount’s of lipstick and to be honest it can be extremely overwhelming!

Nine time’s out of ten during a bridal trial, my “bride to be” will request a nude lip. 

While I do love a nude lip, I also feel that sometimes on your wedding day it is nice to have a hint of colour!

Take for example Mac Cosmetics Soar lipliner and Mac Cosmetics Modesty Lipstick as shown in the picture’s. As you can see by the picture’s it isn’t an intense colour but it does add balance and warmth to the overall makeup. Often your lipstick can make your eyes look brighter and teeth look whiter!

Sometimes a nude lipstick won’t add enough contrast in a picture ,especially if the picture is taken from a distance. Of course in the brighter month’s of the year I may use a lighter tone than Modesty but I have found this shade to be a go to on duller day’s.

Also by using Soar lipliner to line the lip it makes the finish of Modesty a touch pinker.

Another thing to consider is the finish of your Lipstick. While a matte finish will always last longer it may not sit as nice on your lip’s as say a satin or creamsheen finish?!

 Sure if you live in a country where the climate is warmer (lucky you) I’d say go with a matte lipstick , you can always add a little gloss for extra shine or dimension.

But if you suffer from dry or flaky lip’s, either spend time on the week’s prior getting your lip’s as smooth as possible. ( Tips – Stay hydrated, use a lip scrub, apply a lip conditioner ( not Vaseline) apply Vaseline as a barrier if outdoor’s in cold weather or in the pool to protect against chlorine) , or simply opt for a satin , creamy finish lipstick.

Lastly don’t be afraid to ask the Makeup Artist’s working on counter, these girl’s know the popular bridal lipstick’s within their brand and will be happy to show you them. Play around, experiment and don’t be afraid of a little colour. You could surprise yourself!

Thanks for reading!

Much love,
