I have done hair and makeup for weddings for the past years,in Paris and in Sydney.
The main questions the brides always ask, when it comes to their hair and makeup are:
-will it last for the day?
-will it look good in the photos?
-will it be appropriate for them?
How to choose a hairstyle and makeup which will suit me?
There is not one type of hairstyle and makeup for a wedding. There is one hairstyle and one makeup which will suit you. I have done glamourous brides and other wished to look very natural. The hair and makeup will also complement your dresses and accessories. It is really important to have a discussion before we start. Most of the brides come with inspirations for hair and makeup. It helps me to understand your preferences. However, remember that you own hair, facial shape and skin type will conduct to the final result. As a hairstylist and makeup artist, it is my role to help you find the look which will best suit you. I strongly recommend to do a trial, so we can ensure that your hair and makeup will be the ones you want to wear on your wedding day. In other circumstances, if you have a last minute cancellation or too excited to wait and get married very quick, you can always give me a call!
Will my hair and makeup last?
I work with quality products and my technique allows me to create a long lasting makeup. There is one rule, the thicker is your foundation, the more touch ups you will need to do. To avoid this and have a good coverage, I work with a few different products on your skin, which are long lasting. A professional hairstyle takes time to realise as it has to be safe enough to last all day. Also, it is important to choose a hairstyle which suits the best your hair and will hold well. For the touch ups, I have kits available for my brides which we can create on your trial.
Will my makeup look good in photographies?
Yes! And this is the difference with a makeup professionally done. To be photogenic, a face needs to have even proportions. Highlights and shades, put in the right places and adapt to your facial shape will give the corrections you will need to appear beautiful in front of a camera.
Other frequent questions:
Where do we do the trial?
You can come to my studio in Marrickville, I have all the facilities, or I can come at yours.
What is the cost?
The cost will vary regarding your location, number of people and your possible special requests. Best is to email me with:
-Your wedding date
-Number of people (including trial)
-Any special request (tattoos cover, extensions, touch ups on the day...)
I will get back to you with a short notice and an estimate.
What do I need to do before the trial?
Before the trial, I will ask you a few questions:
'-Do you have any allergies?
-Do you use to wear makeup often?
-Do you have accessories for your hair?
-And also a picture of yourself, your dress and your inspiration.
