As a professional makeup artist with experience in many different wedding days, I appreciate everyone wants the day to go by smoothly and with as little stress as possible. This is why the trial is so important, as this is the time I use to discuss wedding themes, what look the bride may want, specific products and any possible sensitivities.
I usually suggest the bridal trial 8-12 weeks before the wedding day, where I will stay until she is completely happy and reassured it will be recreated perfectly on the day. Trials can also be arranged for any bridesmaids, mother of the bride/groom, wedding guests upon request.
I use high quality, well-practiced products that I know also photograph beautifully, as I understand wedding photos will last a lifetime, and I want to ensure the makeup looks I create stay flawless all day long.
