Our 5 tips for getting the most out of your wedding make-up trial!
We aim to get you looking the BEST version of YOU for the big day!
1. GET PINNING!
There is so much inspiration online for your bridal beauty look and Pinterest is the holy grail for assisting in wedding planning in general.
Even if you can’t find the exact look you are envisioning, a collection of images will give our make-up queen, Lizzie, a ‘feel’ of the look you’re going for. Including your dress and colour swatches!
2. WHAT ABOUT IF I DON’T HAVE A CLUE?
Some questions to ask yourself:
* how do you normally wear your make-up? There are no rules – if you feel comfortable wearing a light application then wear a light application! There are so many clever things Lizzie can do to still make it look special.
* when do you get the most compliments? When wearing a smoky eye or just a bare scrap of makeup? When do you feel your best?
* how much makeup do you wear every day? You don’t have to wear stage makeup just because it’s your wedding day, we promise.
* are you likely to pay attention to your makeup on the day? If not we wouldn’t suggest a strong lip.
* is your venue dramatic and dark or light and airy? You can get away with a more intense makeup look in candlelight and at later timed ceremonies.
3. PREP PREP PREP – LIZZIE IS TALENTED BUT A LITTLE HELP GOES A LONG WAY :)
This is the boring but essential bit! Drinking lots of water pre-wedding, getting regular facial hair waxing and brow tinting and shaping, and having a couple of facials are all going to help you look your best. You’re aiming for a great canvas that we can further enhance.
4. HOW TO ARRIVE FOR THE TRIAL
We find it really helpful if the bride turns up with her regular makeup on so we can get an idea of how she looks every day and what kind of makeup she feels comfortable with. We can then provide ELEMIS products for the removal of this make-up. If you use another preferred brand then please feel free to bring this along too.
5. WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR TRIAL AND WHEN TO SCHEDULE IT
Scheduling the trial after you’ve bought ‘the’ dress is pretty helpful as it guides the whole look and focuses the mind as to how you’d like your makeup. You don’t need to bring it with you and a picture would be really helpful. We normally suggest planing the trial 1-3 months before the wedding date.
It’s good to wear your makeup ‘look’ for an hour or so and take a look at it in different mirrors in your home to get used to it.
Here at English Rose Beauty House we use the Studex system for ear piercing. Studex is the world’s largest ear piercing manufacturer. It's 100% hypoallergenic, U.S. FDA and EC compliant and is trusted by more retailers, jewellers and physicians than any other system in the world. Prices include bravery certificate for young clients and aftercare products.**
**PLEASE NOTE**: We now only offer ear piercing for clients aged 7 years and over.
Ear Piercing (9ct Gold Studs)
Lobe piercing only.
We use the Medisept Nose Piercer. It has been designed and manufactured by Studex and is arguably the most innovative system available.
It is recognised by local health authorities and has a patented design.
It comprimises a fully disposable cartridge system. This makes the instrument itself a very hygienic, touch free operation with each sealed cartridge containing one pre-sterilised nose piercing stud.
The jewellery for the Medisept system is Titanium, manufactured to FDA medical standards in the USA, with a Polished Titanium for a "silver" effect and Champagne for a "gold" look. The studs have been specifically designed with a flared post to prevent the need for a clasp inside the nostril and to remain in place throughout the entire healing period.
