HOW TO BEST PREPARE FOR YOUR MAKEUP APPOINTMENT WITH US

This is just advice on how to best prepare and get the best results out of your appointment with me

1: ARRIVE WITH A CLEAN CANVAS

Arrive to your appointment with freshly cleansed skin, do not wear any makeup to your appointment, we want to use your entire appointment time focusing on glamming you up, I'd hate to take 10 or more minutes out of your allocated glam time trying to get last nights mascara off.

2. WAX ATLEAST 1 WEEK PRIOR TO MAKEUP

If you are getting your brows/facial hair waxed we recommend doing it 1 week prior to your makeup appointment as the waxed area can be sensitive or red and sometimes the foundation has a hard time adhering to or sitting on freshly waxed skin. 

3. NO LASH LIFTS IF YOU WANT FALSE LASHES

(lash extensions are fine)

Avoid getting a lash lift for at least 4-6 weeks prior your makeup application if you're wanting false strip lashes applied as its very difficult to stick false strip lashes over someone who's had a lash lift/lash perm as the lash lift makes the lashes more stubborn and hard to move out of the way.

4. FAKE TAN 

If you're booked in for a makeup trial or bridal trial and you plan on being fake tanned on the day of your event / wedding I highly suggest coming to your trial with fake tan on as the tones of the makeup & eyeshadow / lip colours etc will look completely different on different skin tones and we want your trial to be an accurate representation of the look you'll have on the day of your event.

5. WHAT TO WEAR

I recommend wearing something that's easy to remove without wrecking your makeup and/or hair - a strappy/strapless/off-the-shoulder top is best, as this also allows me to apply makeup down your neck onto your decolletage and chest if needed.

If your makeup is for a trial, try to wear something that's a similar colour to your wedding/formal/event outfit, so you can get a real feel for how your makeup will look in the same context.  

6. DON'T BE SCARED TO SPEAK UP

If you're happy I'm happy! Once we're finished your application if theres anything at all you'd like to change or add more/less of please let me know. I want to ensure you are 100% happy before you walk out the door. 

7. RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE
