MAKEUP TRIAL AND CONSULTATION
Once you have booked Clare’s services, a mutually agreed trial date and time will be arranged. Trial appointments are scheduled two to three months in advance of your wedding date and held at Clare’s makeup studio in Surrey. Should you wish for Clare to travel to you for your trial, an additional charge will be made. Please note that makeup trials cannot take place during the evening, due to poor natural lighting and Clare prefers her clients to see their makeup during daylight.
The consultation for makeup only is two hours and for hair and makeup, please allow up to four hours. Each bride is asked to bring any ideas with them to the trial, or create Pinterest board with looks that they like. Alternatively if you don’t have any ideas, Clare will discuss options and different looks. She will take time to get to know your wedding in detail, from your dress, colour scheme, Wedding theme and your personal makeup style. Passionate about good skin care, Clare will also provide advice on how to achieve amazing skin for your wedding day. She will then create a bridal look tailored to your requirements, ensuring that your natural features are enhanced in every way.
Before and after shots will be taken as well as a written client record. After the trial consultation, she will compile a scheduled timetable for your makeup application.
Clare also offers her professional makeup services to brides getting married overseas. She will ensure that your hair and makeup will last during the day through to the evening regardless of the climate.
