Frequently asked questions
How do I prepare my skin and hair?
The night before your wedding exfoliate your skin and follow with a hydrating moisturiser. In the morning follow your usual skin routine. Don't apply heavy SPF cream. I will use a suitable SPF that work with make up. Hair should be clean and dry. Do a double shampoo, rinse well and condition mid length to ends. Do not wax closer that 4 days before as make up doesn't adhere to freshly waxed skin.
How do I know when to have hair & make up finished on the wedding day?
I pride my self on getting you ready on time for your professional photographers arrival. Please ask your photographer when they will arrive. It's imperative to be on time, otherwise you cut into your photo time. I want to ensure you get all of the beauty shots prior to the ceremony and to eliminate starting your day with any stress.
My professional make up service takes about 30 mins per person and hair 30-40 mins. We discuss this in detail at your wedding makeup trial.
Will I have to touch up my make up?
You will need to touch up your lips through out the wedding day. I use only professional products and techniques that make sure the wedding make up lasts all day long. In hot weather I do sugget having a pressed power foundation with you as well.
Is your service mobile?
I travel all over Sydney, Southern Highlands, Hunter Valley and fly to any International destinations for wedding makeup and wedding hair styling.
Where does the trial take place?
My professional makeup and hair studio is located in the Inner West suburb of Leichhardt. There is plenty of free parking right out front.
I have a large bridal party, can you get us all ready early?
I work together with a professional hairdresser so large bridal parties or early ceremonies are easily accommodated.
I don't wear heavy make up, will I still look like me?
Yes , I like the wedding make up to enhance you and not feel like a mask. Your skin will look fresh.
What shall I bring to the hair & make up trial?
Bring pictures of wedding hair and make up you like the feel of. It doesn't have to to be exact, more to give me a feel for what you are attracted to. We use this as a starting point to work out what will suit you and work for your hair. A picture of your wedding dress is also helpful. Wear a white or cream top.
