Bridal Makeup

polita I have had the pleasure of working with numerous brides throughout the South East.   Makeup for a bride is extremely important, it’s the one day in her life where she wants to outshine all others and look positively beautiful and radiant. 

When working on a wedding I insist that my brides meet me for a trial makeup session, and ideally this should be done approximately 4-6 weeks before the wedding.   It is preferable to give a trial to the other wedding party members requiring makeup on the day.  I appreciate however that bridesmaids often live long distances away from the bride this is not always achievable. 

During the makeup trial I will talk to the bride about her preferences and choices.  This includes what makeup she normally wears, the look she would like to have on the day, whether she would like me to apply false eyelashes, her dress design, her wedding colour scheme and how she will have her hair.  I will apply a variety of different makeup ‘looks’ and photograph each of them in different lighting conditions.  I email the photographs to the bride after the trial so she can refer back to them if required.

I can supply the bride’s lipstick or gloss for the day so that she is able to ‘touch up’ her lips as required.  On the day of wedding I will arrive at the bride’s chosen venue allowing plenty of time to set up and provide the makeovers. For no extra charge I am more than happy to help dress the bride and stay with the wedding party until they leave for the wedding if requested.   

Please contact me for my pricing and wedding availability by either emailing me at info@makeupbyjulieforster.co.uk or telephoning 07799 417266.  I can provide other beauty treatments if required including nails and preparation facials.   Please ask for details.
