Make-up Trial Consultation

Once you have “officially” booked Clare’s services, a trial date will be set at a mutually convenient time. Please note that she does not offer bridal make-up trials during the evening, as natural Lighting is poor and she prefers her clients to see their make-up during daylight. Trials are usually arranged two to three months prior to the wedding date, unless it is a last minute booking. Trials are held at her private make-up studio in Surrey. The consultation is two hours and communication is key. She asks that each bride brings any ideas with them to the trial, often clients create Pinterest mood boards to help. Alternatively you may not have any idea and she can discuss options. Clare prides herself in listening to her clients’ requirements. She will take time to discuss your wedding in detail, from your dress, colour scheme, Wedding theme and your personal make-up style. Passionate about good skincare she can provide advice on how to achieve amazing skin for your wedding day. She will then create a bridal look tailored to your requirements but ensuring that your natural features are enhanced in every way. Before and After shots will be taken as well as a written client record. You may choose to be a “Natural Bride”, “Vintage Bride”, “Boho Bride” or “Glamourous Bride”.
