Planning your big day
Bridal Make-up- First of all congratulations on your upcoming wedding! It’s a wonderful time but as most brides out there can assure you it’s not without its fair share of stressful moments. I will do my absolute best to ensure you have a relaxing and completely stress free day, well at least in regards to your make-up, the flowers on the other hand are out of my control.
It all starts when you book your trial. This is a great way for both of us to feel more at ease on the big day. You are able to address whatever concerns you have long before you walk down the aisle. I encourage you to share any images of makeup you love- reference your favorite celeb or even a favorite picture of yourself that you have always loved. It all helps me to create the perfect look for your special day. I believe an open dialogue is the best way to ensure there are no surprises and everyone walks away feeling fabulous. I look forward to being a part of such a wonderful time in your life!
On your wedding day I am more than happy to provide the same outstanding make-up services for your bridal party and anyone else who would enjoy some pampering. I will arrive at your chosen location with everything I need to make you look your best. I can even recommend a hairstylist that can accompany me so you don’t have to stress about shuttling your girls back and forth from the salon. I always strive to go above and beyond your expectations in whatever way I can, I really feel honoured to be a part of such an important day and truthfully weddings makes me giddy!
Make-up Lessons- Have you always wanted to learn how to do your own make-up? Maybe you have had a make-up application at a counter before and you think you understand but when you get home it all goes awry? Maybe you are pretty adept at applying it but you are in a funk and end up doing the same thing every morning and are desperate for a change? Believe me I understand, it is overwhelming to learn the basics of make-up and then to try and keep up to date with trends. You are bombarded with a thousand new beauty products “that you simply must try” every day. It is a lot to process. That’s where I step in. Let me teach you the step-by-step approach to natural beauty. Which means finding the best products for your skin type and your schedule. Only have 15 minutes in the morning, no problem I can streamline your routine so you get the most out of your valuable time. Your lesson will leave you with a firm knowledge of products and the skills needed to apply them. I will walk you through the application step by step and answer any questions. At the end of the lesson you will have the opportunity to show what you learned by doing your own make-up. I am there to help if you need me, so jump in and have fun - after all it’s only make-up, it washes off!
Group Seminars- I am so proud to now offer group seminars and trend workshops. This is a great cost effective option if you have a group of friends who are looking for an excuse to get together, have some munchies and learn something at the same time.
