It isn't always necessary for a trial for special occasion make-up (and hairstyling), however it does allow you the freedom and time to work with me to create your perfect style in preparation for the special day. It also means that all you have to do is relax and allow me to re-create your desired look on the day itself.
The length of your trial is wholly determined by what your individual requirements are however, as a guide, typically trials can last anywhere between 1.5 to 3 hours. This is to ensure that, by the time I leave, you are 100% happy with the look that you have chosen.
Before your trial I will ask you to send me pictures of yourself, both with and without make-up. If you would like to have your hair dressed also, I will ask you to provide me photos of you with your hair down. This allows me to establish the level of make-up you are comfortable wearing day-to-day, as well as the range of possible hairstyles that we can achieve.
On the day of the trial, we will sit down together and go through a brief consultation form in order for me to understand the theme of the event, colours, planned dress / clothes to be worn and the overall style you aim to achieve. Once this is completed, we can get to work creating your ideal look.
Having your make-up done or hair styled is a very personal experience and it is completely natural to feel nervous or self-conscious beforehand, (trust me, everybody worries about their own imperfections). This is why I do everything possible to help make sure you feel completely at ease throughout the entire process, for example, by paying extra attention to those areas where you may feel less confident in order to ensure that you feel at your most beautiful by the end of the trial and, ultimately, on the day itself.

Day of the Special Occasion / Event
On the day of your event, as a mobile make-up artist and hair stylist, I am able to travel to you at your desired location and in plenty of time so that there is no rushing around.
Wherever possible, whilst having your make-up/hair done, it is best to pass your phone and other responsibilities onto a relative / friend, so that you can totally relax, enjoy being pampered and soak up the serenity that comes with it.
With the notes from your trial, and the photographs you previously provided, I will easily be able to re-create your desired look and allow time for touch-ups just before you are about to leave, ensuring you stay looking fresh until the event starts.

How to secure your booking...
To secure your trial date a 50% deposit of the total trial cost is required. This deposit is non-refundable, however the date of the trial can be amended up until two days beforehand. Your special occasion date will also be automatically reserved and is held until 48 hours after the trial day itself.
After the trial, if you wish to confirm your booking, a £50 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your date. This amount is then deducted from any final, outstanding balance.
I will always endeavour to cater to your individual needs, including travelling to you for your trial(s) and on the special day itself. Typically travel costs are included in the prices listed above, however, given some travel distances can be quite large, there may be additional travel charges incurred at times. This will, of course, be discussed with you upon enquiry / booking.
