Your exclusive bridal make-up package includes;

Initial telephone consultation (if required)

Make-up trial at my home studio

Makeup on the wedding day at your home or venue

Application of artificial lashes

My full attention until you leave for your ceremony

On your Wedding Day choosing your bridal makeup and hair style is as important as choosing your dress.  We want to make sure you look back at your photographs and know you looked at your most beautiful, polished flawless all day, but still you. 

Should I have my hair up? or down? straight or curled hair?

 

What colour lipstick should I wear? Will my make-up last the whole day?

 

All of the above questions can be answered by having a trial.

It is advisable to book for a trial 6-8 weeks before your wedding day.

We would normally need about two-three hours.  The trial is essential for both you and for a Make-up artist to ensure your hair and make-up runs smoothly on the day.

To assist us with your hair and make-up trial it would be great if you could have details of your wedding dress as well as any personal make-up likes and dislikes.

A few photographs/pictures of hair and make-up that you like are a great help in communicating the look you are aiming for.

 

We can explore different styles, find a look that matches your wedding gown or evening dress, I will listen intently to your views and ideas and we can create a look that highlight your best features and one that is tailor made especially for you.

 

To book a trial or if you have any queries regarding our service,
please contact us on 07926 838 932 or email ying_say_su@yahoo.co.uk

ONE TO ONE MAKEUP LESSONS ALSO AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.

 

Do you find make-up totally mystifying and dread going to makeup counters? Do you have a drawer full of makeup purchased by mistake?

Have you ever wanted to really understand which makeup styles suit you, which colours light up your face and make you look radiant and healthy?

 

Have you ever been confused about the vast array of products available to choose from and not knowing where to begin?  Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut with the same makeup routine for years not knowing how to make yourself look more put together, more polished and effortlessly stylish – as if you woke up looking like this?

 

Do you use the same makeup style for daytime and evening and don’t know how to turn your daytime look into a more glamorous and sophisticated evening look?

 

If the answer to any of these questions is yes then a makeup lesson is a great idea! I will take mystery out of the makeup world, teach you which are the correct products for your skintype and skintone and how to apply those products like a pro! A makeup lesson will also save you a fortune in the long run as they'll be no more  bad makeup purchases .

Life-changing, lifelong make-up skills and a simple beauty routine designed around your individual style and needs can be immensely confidence boosting and is exactly what you will take away when you come for a tutorial.  I see the beauty in every woman and can show you the makeup that will reveal it so that you can face that mirror with a smile and sparkle each and every day.
 

At the end of the lesson you’ll look amazing, feel revitalised and walk away with a spring in your step, feeling fabulous and armed with newly acquired skills and tips to accentuate your unique features and highlight your individual beauty, you will be wishing you’d done this years ago!

 

By the time you finish you will have more confidence with your makeup application and a greater understanding of the best and most appropriate makeup products to enhance your natural beauty and highlight your unique features. 

 

During the lesson, we will look through your existing makeup kit (please have it with you, no matter how big or small!) to assess which products are suitable and which you might need to replace.  I will give you a makeover, applying the makeup step by step and guide you through the best products and colours to suit your skin type and highlight your best features, creating a look that is most flattering to you.  You will learn how to use the best makeup that is suited to you and the best brushes to give you the most flawless finish  in which only a professional will know how to.   I will then complete a face chart and email you a full list of products and tools that was used so you will be able to apply and recreate the beautiful looks at home using the insider tips and knowledge that you have picked up during the lesson.  

Makeup lessons are also great for brides who wish to learn how to apply their own makeup on their wedding day or brides getting married abroad who don't want to chance a foreign makeup artist abroad doing their makeup.

 

A lesson takes roughly 3 hours.
