Makeup is like any art – some people are drawn to certain styles! How do you know that I’m the artist for you? Well, start by taking a look at my portfolio, and if you like what you see, book a trial! I am based in Kitchener-Waterloo, so I service the Region of Waterloo as well as the City of London (where I’m originally from). I’m happy to travel anywhere in Ontario, but travel fees apply for areas outside of KW or London.
Most people are aware of the concept of a “Trial” application ahead of a major event like a wedding. Trials for 2018 clients cost $40 – this cost covers travel, supplies, lashes, and effort.
Initial Conversation and Consultation – this is a quick talk about what you’re looking for in your makeup application. This is for me to get to know you, get some key pieces of information, and craft an idea for how to approach the trial.
Test Trial – This trial is for you to feel confident in hiring me. Based on our consult, I apply a makeup look that I think matches your event and what you were looking for. Please remember that makeup for events is very different than an everyday makeup look. Light and photography drastically dilute colours and the look of makeup on the skin. I suggest having this trial on a day that you are going dress shopping or doing a fitting, going to an engagement party, going to another wedding, etc. That way you can see the application in photos, while wearing something more formal and getting a real sense of the actual look. A bridal makeup application while wearing jeans and a t-shirt can look a little strange and feel like it’s way too much.
Confirmation Trial – A “final” trial in the weeks before your event to solidify the desired look. This is to account for major changes like tanned skin, changed hair colour, etc, and it lets the client feel totally solid in the look. I chart the products and colours used to refer to on your event day.
