What about your business are you most proud of?
I think I am most proud of setting up and managing a business on my own. The job satisfaction I receive after completing a bridal parties makeup makes me love my job even more every day.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Take each day as it comes, enjoy every moment of the planning process and try not to get stressed.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
When I receive an inquiry, I will first check the date to ensure I am free. I will then liaise with the bride to find out information of what services she would require. I would then arrange a suitable date for a trial makeup and send her a booking confirmation form to complete. On the day of the trial I will meet with the bride and bridesmaids to find out what look they are interested in. After a successful trial we will then finalise details of the 'big day' and I will check in with her a week before the wedding to ensure all details remain the same. The bride will have my personal phone number to call should she need to discuss or change any requirements.
What do you love most about your job?
I absolutely love seeing a wedding day come together, arriving in the morning when the bridal party have just awoken, seeing the venue and hair being prepped and creating the desired looks on my clients. I love the confidence women feel when they have their makeup done.
What is your No. 1 beauty tip for a bride?
Ensuring the bride drinks enough water prior to the day to keep the skin hydrated.
How do you keep the bride feeling calm on her wedding day?
Simply by talking to her, taking her mind off the stress that the wedding day can bring and taking all the time the bride needs to make her feel more relaxed.
What advice would you give to brides to stay looking great throughout their wedding day?
I would always recommend taking a time out for the newly married couple to just relax and enjoy their special day. I also recommend that bridesmaids always have a bottle of water on hand for the bride to ensure she keeps hydrated throughout the day. There are also re-vitalizing spray mists which give the skin a boost of hydration and vitamins, these are good for a quick fix.
