With Regards to Hair…
If you would like to add on a blow dry to your event style, please let us know upon booking and we can ensure a polished, full bodied finished style. If you prefer to prep your hair yourself, please dry completely the day of using appropriate products to acquire your desired finished look. For example, if you're looking for a full bodied look with lots of volume, please use a volumizing product and dry hair upside down, achieving lots of volume at the root. If you're looking for a smooth, frizz-less look please use appropriate products accordingly, and dry smoothly. Please avoid a flat iron pre-appointment, as flat ironed hair tends to drop curl easier.
With Regards to Our Makeup...
We are proud to use & carry Glo Professional Mineral Makeup. Mineral makeup is ideal in polishing your skin with a fresh, minimally 'made up' look. Light reflection is key with photography, and we tend to like the look of a powder based mineral makeup to achieve this glowing look. If you require a heavier coverage, we do have an array liquid foundations on hand to achieve this. Please let us know if you're an ensuite bride and would require a heavy or particular finish makeup, so that we're sure to bring these products along to the appointment. Feel free to bring any favorite products along to be worked in to the appointment as well.
We believe that when it comes to lips, the first application is the best application, hands down. To ensure that the perfect shade is applied every time, we recommend you provide your own lip colour. That way, you are able to apply your lips just before the ceremony, you will have a product for re-touches throughout the evening, and you have a shade which you know is absolutely perfect for you. Being comfortable in your makeup is the key to being beautiful. We love the look of a pigmented stain, topped with a lightly tinted gloss. Feel free to ask about any shade recommendations or product favourites we have. Don't be afraid to pick a pigment with depth... you don't want to wash out in the photos!
The makeup appointment includes the application of single lashes if you like, usually to the outer corners of your eyes. This creates a gorgeous 'doe-eyed' effect. Our makeup session will also include a waterproof, smudgeproof, streak free mascara that you keep afterwards. We choose to open a brand new mascara for every client in order to use the product's own wand, as this is the trick to building a beautiful set of lashes! If you're a serious 'lash girl', we have a wide selection of strip lashes to choose from, which you can add on to your appointment for $20.
Being a part of your wedding day is more than just doing hair and applying makeup. It is by far one of the highlights of what we do. It is a pleasure to spend time with brides on the day of their ceremony, surrounded by so many customs, preparations, and the glowing love that is sure to affect all that participate. We are honored to be a part of your day.
