How to prepare for your wedding makeup trial


1. SKIN PREP


Prepping your skin correctly can dramatically change the results of the makeup, both at the trial and on the big day! Smooth, clean, well taken care of skin will aid the result of flawless makeup! I have found an amazing book I highly recommend that will change your skincare routine for the better! Caroline Hirons is a skincare guru and has written a book about al things skin care. She speaks about every skin type, condition – you name it! I do have this book for us to look at during your trial but if its something you might want to have at home here is the link! https://www.carolinehirons.com

If you are having a summer wedding and having the trial in the winter please apply a soft tan to make the trial more realistic to the day. The makeup looks completely different on pale / more tanned skin tones!

 

2. LOCATION PREP

 
I am pleased to say I now have a makeup studio! It is based in my home in Broughton, Aylesbury. The studio is equipped with professional lighting to ensure the colours and tones chosen are spot on! We can discuss your trial and do a consultation in the consultation area and look at images and ideas.

 

3. OUTFIT PREP

At the trial to help envision the makeup against a white or lighter colour – please wear a top as close to your wedding dress colour as possible. Same goes for bridesmaids having a trial, please wear a similar colour to the dress you will be wearing on the day. Button up or loose is best, you’ll thank me when there are no make-up stains at the end of the day! It is good for you to see the importance of colour added to the face when wearing white!

 

4. EVERYDAY MAKEUP

Please arrive at your trial with freshly cleansed skin. Please have 2 pictures of yourself available for viewing, one of you wearing day-to-day makeup and one of you wearing an occasion makeup look.

 

INSPIRATION

Have ready some images of makeup you have found that you like the style of. It is more helpful when you show your artist images of makeup they have done ( instagram tagged). Images of your dress and the bridesmaid dresses will help to decide the style of makeup which will most suit the wedding. There are a million looks your artist could create, but to have colour schemes, images of your dress and makeup you have seen before that took your fancy, all helps when deciding the perfect look for you and your wedding.
