Bath Makeup Artist for Bridal Hair and Makeup – Tips for Consultation

Tips for your Bridal Hair and Makeup Trial & Consultation

Consultation & Trial Check List

  • Before you trial: Prepare by emailing your artist a casual and occasion photograph or yourself/your bridal party this will help understand your usually preferences for style/makeup and also provide an idea of eye/face shape and colour.
  • Email your artist with any inspirations you have for hair or makeup. Tip: Use photographer and wedding blogs for ideas – there you see real life weddings rather than studio shoot images which have been edited and airbrushed to magazine quality. Pinterest can also be a good source of inspiration. Use common themes to your self to search, ‘bride brown hair floral crown’ etc. These ideas are just a starting place to discover what you love.
  • For your trial: Wear a colour top toned similar to your wedding dress and with a similar neck line if possible.
  • Hair accessories – Veil, decorative clips/combs, headband, tiara or flowers (or a substitute of similar style) Often you can loan hair accessories from suppliers and return the ones you do not want to use for your day. Unless you have a clear idea of what you would like it is not essential but advisable to have a small selection of options as the hair accessories often lead the type of hairstyle you choose on your trial.
  • Wedding jewellery, earrings/necklace to help you picture the final look.
  • Hair Trial: Hair clean and dry but not freshly washed. The night before is fine, double shampoo and use conditioner on ends of hair only, dry as usual.
  • I will style your hair, working with your accessories and your desired look for your day. I do not cut to shape or colour hair therefore I would suggest your hairdresser cuts and/or colours your hair no closer that two weeks before your trial date/wedding date to allow time for your hair to settle.  Nb: If you usually have highlights and are thinking of having hair up I would suggest a full head of highlights we can discuss this further at trial. Super important to note before a hair cut with your hairdresser is the length of your front layers/fringe – If you like the idea of sweeping fringe/sides back off your face you ideally need length chin or below. This can be discussed at your trial.
  • Makeup Trial: Cleanse and Moisturise your face on the morning of trial as usual and notify me of any skin allergy/sensitivity. This applies for any other member of bridal party for the wedding day as per terms and conditions
  • Skin: There are many treatments that improve the surface and texture of the skin. It is essential to use a good ‘vitamin enriched’ moisturiser and quality cleanser day and night. Brands such as Environ, Obagi are brilliant. Other highstreet brands I would recommend Clinic Moisture Surge, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. If in doubt a please consult a good beautician in your area for specialist advice. I would recommend hydrating or balancing facials with your local beautician. Also I can highly recommend Skin Base Microdermabrasion. Foundation looks amazing on skin which is cleansed, exfoliated and very well hydrated.
  • Establishing a good skin care routine and have occasional facials this will help with overall radiance and may help reduce pore size/dry skin etc. I am also able to recommend a Aesthetic Practitioner who can help with deeper skin care concerns please ask me at your trial.
  • Other skin health tips… Regularly take a good quality skin/hair vitamin, drink plenty of water/hydrating fluid, move/walk & exercise those toxins out of your body! Eat clean & enjoy treat time!
  • Brows: Having your eyebrows professionally shaped and tinted is a great way of enhancing your eye shape and bringing out the colour of your eye. A good tip is look around for a person who’s brows you admire and be cheeky – ask where they get theirs shaped! If you are local to me BA14 9DG I can shape and if needed tint your brows. Use the Eyelashes & Brow page on my website to book your appointment online.
  • Lashes: Be kind to your lashes! Use a good quality mascara remover and cotton, avoid pulling off your mascara whilst watching evening TV! (We have all done it) Use a good Lash Serum – I can recommend Nouveau Lash & Brow Serum which I personally use and can also supply if needed.
  • During your trial I will be able to recommend either cluster lashes or a natural strip lash to enhance your eye. You can try this out and where them home at your trial.
  • Eyelash Treatments: LVL Eyelash Lift is a treatment which gives a 6-8 week root lift to your natural lashes (imagine never needing to use a lash curler – but better!) The treatment includes a tint and you can add a brow tint & tidy to you appointment at the same time if desired. Booking is available online via the Eyelash & Brow page on my website
