Why Do I Need A Makeup Artist For My Big Day? You've spent months finding the perfect dress, choosing the right venue and generally choreographing all the tiniest details for the biggest day of your life! So don't forget that all eyes are on you and you want to look as picture perfect as you've always imagined...
Unless you're a dedicated makeup wearer, it's not the best idea to leave your wedding makeup to chance....or nerves! Your chosen makeup artist will be able to take control and produce the perfect eyeliner no matter how many butterflies are flying around your stomach 🦋
So sit back, relax, and soak it all in while your makeup artist makes you look a million dollars
How Far In Advance Should I Book My Makeup Artist? There is no hard and fast rule to how far in advance you should book your makeup artist, but keep in mind that we do take bookings up to 2 years in advance! Around a year before is the norm, so the earlier the better is preferable if you want to secure your date, but always drop me a message to see if I can help!
How Do I Secure The Date For My Wedding? To secure the date for your wedding, Yvonne will confirm she is available and then send you an invoice for 50% of the booking. Only when this has been paid is your date secure. Dates are given on a first come first served basis, so if the invoice remains unpaid then your date can be given to another bride. The retainer is non-refundable and non-transferable.
Can You Provide Makeup Services For The Whole Bridal Party? Absolutely! It may be your special day, but that doesn't mean all the ladies in your bridal party don't want to feel and look good too. Yvonne is more than happy to provide makeup services for the Bridesmaids, Mother of The Bride, Mother of The Groom, Granny...you name it! If there is a large bridal party that needs accommodating for, then Yvonne will hire an assistant to help get you all ready on time (additional makeup artists will be charged at an additional fee).
Will There Be A Bridal Makeup Preview? Most definitely. Your wedding day isn't the time to find out if you and your makeup artist aren't on the same page regarding the look you want, or to find out that you have an allergic reaction to a product. Yvonne will provide a makeup preview for all her brides somewhere between 12 and 8 weeks before the wedding, ensuring that you're 100% happy with your look before your big day. Previews can also be provided for all members of the bridal party upon request.
