Every Bride is different so your bridal makeup is personalised and unique to you in order for you to feel confident and most importantly be truly yourself.
CONSULTATION AND TRIAL
Once you have been in touch, we will organise a trial.
I have a lovely home studio where I do trials or alternatively I can come to a location of your choice
The trial will begin with a consultation, this is where we will discuss your vision, what your dress is like, your theme, colour schemes and details for your day. I will also run through a health and safety form with you, to ensure I am aware of any allergies or skin sensitivities. I am also able to run a skincare consultation and suggest a good skincare routine that is personalised to you, perfect to prep your skin for the lead up to your wedding.
We will go through any mood-boards or makeup images you have. With my professional knowledge I will suggest what will suit your skin type and face shape as well as what colours will suit your skin tone and eye colour. We will also discuss what makeup you wear on a normal day which we can then adapt to your bridal look which is perfect for brides who want a more natural look.
When applying your makeup, I will talk through exactly what I am doing to make sure your absolutely comfortable throughout. I will check that your happy at every stage and will tweak until your 100% happy and in love with your bridal look.
Once we have found your bridal look, I will take photos and detailed notes to document every part of your makeup. I will then be in contact once I've worked out timings and discuss a schedule to ensure your morning is nice and calm, so all you have to worry about is enjoying your last minutes as a Miss with your bridal party. I will also decide whether an assistant or second artist is needed which I will organise.
YOUR BRIDAL PARTY
You and your girls! Your bridal party are your chosen loved ones so its important to me that they feel beautiful too!
Whether you want your bridesmaids makeup to fit inline with yours or your happy for them to do whatever they like, they will receive guidance from myself on what suits them and products will be altered to suit their skin type to ensure the longevity of the makeup.
Gifting your Mum and Mother-in-law makeup application is a great way to make them feel special and involved on the morning. They will be feeling rather emotional so I often find sitting them down to have their makeup done is the perfect way for them to remain calm and relaxed. Often I find they are super nervous to have their makeup done, but I take good care of them and talk through exactly what they want.
For any flower girls or bridesmaids under 7 that want to join in on the fun and feel super special I offer a lipgloss or lipstick application as well as a bit of blush free of charge. This can be done once they are dressed.
I recommend that all bridal party members have a trial, to ensure they are absolutely happy on the day, however, any bridal party member that I don't see will be sent a form to fill out which I will need back 2 weeks before the wedding date. This will go over ideas and skin type. However, the most essential part for me is the Health and Safety sheet.
ON THE DAY
I will arrive at the agreed time, 15 minutes before the first makeup application, in order to set up. I will ensure that you and your bridal party are ready 1 hour - 45 minutes before you need to leave, this will give plenty of time to get those beautiful morning photos and get you in your dress!
I am more then happy to stay until you leave to do any touch ups, re-apply your lipstick and help out with your final moments.
Everyone's Makeup will be powdered and set to last all day long.
I am available to do a second call out for a makeup change or touch ups before your reception - Price on request
For destination weddings please get in contact for more information.
Olivia was so amazing on my wedding morning! Not only did my makeup look perfect, it also stayed in place all day and felt so light on my skin. I have very dry and sensitive skin and I couldn’t believe how hydrated my face still felt at the end of the day. Olivia was super calm and so organised - she ran ahead of schedule and really calmed me down when I started to feel nervous. She went above and beyond by doing things like getting my flowers out of the water and drying them off for me, she even did up my shoelaces when I was flapping about, panicking about being ready on time! I will never forget what an amazing job she did and I’m so glad I chose her to be part of my wedding morning. Thanks so much Olivia
HAIR ON REQUEST
I am also a degree qualified hair stylist, and am available for Bridal Hair on request. For smaller bridal parties I am available to do both Makeup and Hair services. My style is Romantic and Elegant Bridal looks, I love to create beautiful hairstyles that enhance your face shape, designing a timeless style that you can adore in photos for years to come. To achieve the perfect hair, I will spend time setting and prepping your hair, using a range of exceptional styling products to ensure we achieve your desired look. Hairstyling is an art and due to the varied thickness/ length and textures of hair, it is not something to be rushed therefore, timings will be depended on the desired style.
For larger Bridal Parties, I work alongside some excellent hairstylists who I recommend to ensure you can have two experts assisting you and your bridal party. I created The Bridal Stylist Collaborative with larger bridal parties in mind, a way of myself as your Makeup Artist and a personal recommendation of a Hairstylist collaborating together.
