At your trial we will discuss your dream look for your big day and test a range of products and colours to find out what suits you best. Trials are allocated 1.5 hours and one look will be done with minor changes. We recommend you do your trial no longer than 2 months before your wedding day.

MAKING AND SECURING BOOKINGS
To secure your booking on a particular date you are required to pay a non-refundable 50% holding fee of the total booking cost. This fee goes towards your final fee on the day and is a retainer to ensure that your date is kept free for you. Your booking is not confirmed until this fee has been paid. Occasionally the makeup artist will not request the retainer fee until someone else has requests that date, but you will be informed.
You will receive an invoice for the amount and can pay by bank transfer or credit card. The remaining fee must be paid up in full prior to or on the day. Bank transfer on the day is not acceptable as payment will not clear until after the appointment.
RECOMMENDED HAIR STYLISTS
Due to the time it takes to complete a makeup (1 hour per person) hair styling services are not offered for weddings or bridal parties. We suggest that you book a mobile hair stylist to work along side the makeup artist to get you ready. Alternatively you can book into a hair salon and makeup can be performed there (with their permission) or at the location you are getting ready.
