More information about my professional hair and makeup services

Frequently asked questions

Please get in touch with your wedding date, location and approximate number of people or event details and I will get back to you shortly with my availability and a quote.

What do you charge for makeup and how do I book?

Makeup is my passion so I partner with a talented stylist who does gorgeous hair. Most clients think that booking someone who does both hair and makeup will save you money, but if more than 3 people need both hair and makeup, the artist will usually need another set of hands. You won’t meet their assistant until the morning of your wedding or event, which can feel impersonal. You’re also likely to be charged an additional fee, making the overall cost equal to that of hiring separate hair and makeup specialists.

Can you also style my hair?

My makeup kit includes a range of premium products that have proven themselves to be long wearing, so your look will stay put throughout your big day. Some of my favourite products come from brands such as MAC, Charlotte Tilbury and Nars, just to name a few :)

What products do you use?

I am based out of Southeast London, however I'm happy to travel. Please contact me for a makeup quote which will includes travel to your location. 

What areas do you cover?

Your bridal makeup trial will last 1-2 hours. It gives me a chance to get to know you and lets us decide on your desired look for your wedding day. I often have clients find 2-3 images of makeup they love, from there we can customise a look that works with your features and fits your bridal style.

What will my makeup trial involve?

All the products I use are very long wearing and will stay put throughout your event, however with all bridal bookings I include my wedding day mini touch up kit. This includes touch up sizes of your chosen lipstick, a loose powder, mini lash glue, blotting sponge and lip wand.

You may still decide to pick up a full size lipstick and blotting powder of your choosing for ease of reapplication throughout the night :)

Will I need to touch up my makeup?

I aim to create a relaxed, pampering morning so like to allow a minimum of 1 hour for bridal makeup and 35 minutes per bridesmaid/additional person. This allows everyone to relax and enjoy the time together before the ceremony :)

How much time do you need on my wedding day?

A £50 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your wedding date, this is deducted from the balance due on your wedding day.

Trial payment will be due on date of trial. Remaining balance in full will be collected on day of service in cash or payable by bank transfer or *credit/debit at least 48hrs in advance. 

When is payment due and what payment methods do you accept?

*small fee applies for credit/debit payment
