Please do not eat whilst I'm doing your makeup or immediately after. Please plan ahead and eat BEFORE I arrive. It's OK to have a drink while I'm doing your makeup, but please refrain from eating whilst i'm doing or your makeup or directly thereafter and please do not ask me to re-do your makeup after I've done it. Any touchups will be charged at $40 and require you to purchase a touch up kit;
If you have sensitive eyes that are prone to watering, please take an antihistamine / allergy relief tablet prior to your appointment
Please arrive with freshly washed face (do not wear any makeup to your appointment)
please do not use your phone unless it is urgent - I usually have a fully staked day and I can't spare the time while you take calls
Please cancel your appointment if you have COVID, illness or any contagious skin conditions such as cold sores, skin rashes, skin fungus, conjunctivitis, warts etc. I do not take deposits so there are no penalties.
Acne - do not burst pimples the day of your appointment as fresh/open wounds will not cover with foundation/concealer
If I am hairstyling, babies/children are not permitted in the same room or vicinity of the styling area as the tools I use are extremely hot.
HAIR - PLEASE wash your hair the night before if I am styling it for you. or if you having a blow dry wash it just prior to my arrival.
if this is your first major event, or you just aren't sure what to expect, see below a little list of some things that might help you prep for your event. These are just some observations I've made from attending so many and are tips i've picked up through personal experience or experiences from my clever clients. It also gives you a little idea of timing. Even picking one thing off the list might make you feel that little extra special for your big day.
6-8 weeks out
- consult with a beauty spa and consider a facial regime (such as skin needling) leading up to your event to help your skin glow. The smoother your skins surface is, the better your makeup will look
- consider teeth whiting (particularly if you are a smoker)
1-2 days out
- spray tan
- Eyebrows threaded
- facial hair is always amplified by foundation/powder so consider derma planing prior to appointment
- take a little pamper time out and apply a hyrdrating facial mask before bed so you have baby soft skin in the morning. The more hydrated your skin is, the better makeup will apply and stay.
