A bridal trial is a full makeup application before the date. It is our chance to meet, discuss your preferences and create your dream wedding look.

How long does a makeup application take?

For event makeup I book 1.5 hours per appointment. If doing full glam like cut creases etc, it may take up to 2 hours. I prefer to never rush the beauty process.

For bridal makeup I book 2 hours for the bride, and bridesmaids or mother of the bride I book 1.5 hours each.

What is soft glam vs full glam?

Soft glam is more neutral and muted tones (browns, soft pink/peach), it is still pretty and glam but not too intense. Full glam is more bold and eye catching, like dark smokey eyes, cut crease, glitter, or bold colours. Because of the detail, full glam takes extra time (up to 2 hours).

How long have you been doing makeup? Are you certified?

I have 13 years experience as a makeup artist, and yes I graduated from the top makeup school in Canada (Blanche Macdonald Centre), and have taken celebrity artist masterclasses to further advance my education. I've done freelance makeup for weddings, photography, film and fashion over the past decade, and worked at MAC Cosmetics for several years. 

Will my makeup last all day?

Yes! I use high quality and long-wearing foundation and setting products, which help for your makeup to last all day. The only areas you may have to touch-up would be your lipstick, and powder if your skin is prone to shine.

What makeup brands do you use?

I only use high quality and professional-grade products in my kit. Some of my frequent brands include MAC, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Toofaced, Danessa Myricks, Makeup by Mario and Charlotte Tilbury.

Do you do women of colour/darker skin?

Yes of course! My experience working at MAC really helped to hone my skill of working on all ethnicities and ages. I have a wide range of complexion products for ALL skin tones.
