It's worth remembering that makeup not only plays a very important role to give you confidence but will ensure you look fantastic on your wedding photos as it evens out skin tone and enhances your beautiful features.
To make sure you're very happy with your makeup and ensure a stress-free wedding morning. I highly recommend a wedding makeup trial and consultation for EVERYONE who is considering having their makeup done. I understand that everyone has a different approach to makeup, some like very natural makeup, whilst others prefer it bold. I will listen to you, explore photos and experiment with your look until you feel happy and confident. It's very important that we build a relationship and I pride myself on getting to know you, to be relaxed but professional.
I would suggest that you book your trial no later than 3 months before your wedding as you will be busy planning and it can be difficult getting your wedding party together. You can BOOK YOUR WEDDING TRIAL ONLINE. It is important that everyone reads pre and aftercare advice to get the most from your appointment.
You will need to allow a minimum of 60 minutes for the bride and 30 minutes for bridesmaid’s, mother of the bride / groom and special guests. Come WEARING YOUR MAKEUP and BRING PRODUCTS WITH YOU (for reference only, please do not purchase new products I supply everything) this is so I can see how much makeup you apply and textures you use. Vast amount of time can me consumed explaining what you use, but using my 32 years of knowledge in the industry I can look at your products in 30 seconds and know exactly what to do. My aim is the ensure you are comfortable there is nothing worse than having your makeup applied and you just want to remove it.
PHOTOS OF DRESSSES AND SWATCHES are essential. If you really are struggling then bring photos of what you don't like. I know that may sound crazy but we do find it easier to say what we don't like than what we do like...
The more prepared you are for your wedding trial with all of the above the more you will enjoy the experience and get exactly what you are looking for and on your big day we can tweak shades (self-tan application for example) and textures as we will have done all the preparation at the trial.
If you cannot get all your wedding party together you can book over 2 dates but do try and get everyone at the same date, it's very enjoyable and relaxing I provide tea, coffee, water or wine and you might pick up a few makeup tips too! book your trial using my online diary. The cost is £60 this incudes full consultation of looks and shades, for a party of Bride +2, more in your party? then just add £20 so for a party of 4 would be £80 and so on. The location is at my professional studio Ashbourne Derbyshire.
Please remember that I do not hold your wedding date till you have paid your deposit.
As a professional wedding makeup artist, I use a wide range of handpicked products to create each bride's individual look. I use only top-quality products that are used at the National TV Awards and the British Soap Awards so you are definitely getting the very best. If you are sensitive I work with a range of products created by a Consultant Dermatologist that are very ethical and have amazing calming properties. I have my own range of EstherMarie skincare that is VEGAN working with essential oils and natural ingredients, they prove a real hit with brides as they are not only amazing on your skin but the essential oils are chosen for their calming and detoxing properties.
All my services are available for just the bride or the entire bridal party - bridesmaids, mothers of the Bride and groom and special guests. I also do lashes, brows and facials too that can be linked to your booking.
I only do one wedding a day so I will work around your times, I will help you get into your dresses and anything else I can help your wedding party with, I wont leave you till you are fully ready. A Guideline for makeup application and strip lashes 30 mins is fast, 45 mins is about right and 1 hour per person is luxury.
