What is your process of conceptualizing hair and makeup looks with brides and bridesmaids ahead of the wedding day?
Trials are a very important part of the process. It’s where I get the feel and understand the vibe of the wedding and how the bride visualizes the day. I love seeing photos of the dress, flowers, and styling so I can see how I can play my part to achieve the dream wedding. I also find it really good to get an idea of the photographer’s style as I think that plays an important role as well.
What’s your advice for brides when deciding on bridal hair and makeup looks?
Trial your “idea” of your bridal hair and makeup because until you see it on yourself you won’t know if you love or hate it. Also choosing a style of hair and makeup plus the artist for your day keeping in mind that you want it to look perfect in photos as well as in person.
What tips, tricks or advice do you have for brides to increase the longevity of their bridal look throughout the wedding day?
My best advice is to get yourself a beauty blender and get the makeup artist to mix some of your foundation/concealer color onto it. Keep it in a zip lock bag in your purse and touch up under the eye area/around the lips and jawline if you see any of your makeup wearing off. Literally makes you look so fresh and like you just had it done (almost acts like a flawless filter during the evening)! Also keep a mini blush and lippy handy as well, especially if it’s a warmer day.
Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! I am based in both Australia and the UK. I spend most of the European summer in Italy/France working but travel anywhere around the world to where weddings take me.
