 VISUAL STYLE UNDERSTANDING

There are so many bridal makeup inspirations and it can be interpreted in many levels and styles. To make sure we are on the same page about your style, we suggest collecting images (i.e. magazine pictures, photos, internet images saved into your phone) to show to us your desired bridal look. This will establish a clear communication as we use your ideas to inspire the perfect design for your dream bridal look. We may not necessarily design the exact look, however, having a visual helps us understand what you are comfortable with. These images can also be emailed.

FACE

Come with a clean, moisturized face. We recommend having your eyebrows groomed at least 2 days prior to the trial session to prevent any redness. Please let us know if you are allergic to any type of cosmetic product or ingredient. As an optional lash enhancement, we will use DUO latex glue to adhere the faux strip eye lashes. This adhesive can be removed with water and cleansing cream. All our cosmetic and skincare products are non-comedogenic and hypo allergenic which is safe for all skin type especially sensitive skin.

FOR MAKE-UP ONLY BRIDES

It is a good idea to have your hair done & styled close to the wedding day style before coming. This would give you a better picture of the whole look when everything is completed.

HAIR

If you are having us do your hair trial, please have clean, dry hair (blow dry or naturally dried). For a seamless style and more workable hair, please have your hair product-free. Please let us know if you are allergic to any type of hair product or ingredient.

 

CLOTHING

We recommend wearing a white or cream colored top, (example white / ivory tank-top, tube/strapless top) or a color that is close to the color of your gown. Doing so will give you an overall visual feel for the hair and make-up colors when viewing at on a full scale against the color of your gown.
