Bridal Makeup trials are held at our Studio in Sandhurst, Monday to Friday and are a very relaxed 2 hour appointment where we can chat through your perfect look for the day. Ideally, trials are recommended to take place 2 to 3 months before the big day. A lot of brides find it very useful and a fun part of the day to bring along a friend or family member too, just let us know in advance. It’s a good idea to wear a colour similar to the dress that you will be wearing on the day so that your attention remains focussed on the makeup and also so that you get a feel for the overall finished look.
