How to Prepare for Your Makeup Trial
A makeup trial is not essential but it is very helpful because it allows me to make sure everything runs smoothly on your wedding day. Essentially your makeup trial gives your makeup artist the chance to perfect your look so there is no “guess work” when doing your wedding day makeup.
Prepare for your makeup trial the night before: If you normally wear an eye-cream, please skip this step the night before and the day of your trial! The creaminess of your eye-cream will affect how well your eye-shadow stays on the next day, even with a primer.
If you plan on getting a facial or a spray tan, please do so at least one month before your wedding day. This is because a facial can make you break out or increase your sensitivity.
The day of your makeup trial: Please do not wear any makeup at all to the trial (If you do, I will know ;)). You can wear sun screen but eye-cream is a no-no because it will make your eye shadow and eye liner smear. We want to make sure your eye makeup stays on all day and night for your wedding, so please follow my advice on how to prepare for your makeup trial.
What to bring to your makeup trial: You can bring a friend or your mom if you like because it’s always helpful to have a the opinion of someone you know and trust. Please bring photos (photos can be on your phone or Pinterest) of makeup looks that you like and would like to try.
