Wedding Makeup

Do you travel to venue/home address to do the Makeup on the Wedding Day?

Yes i travel to where you are getting ready on the morning of your Wedding whether that be the Venue  or a home address?

Do you charge travel costs?

Yes i charge from my studio address post code (LN69GN) to your chosen address, the cost is 0.60p/mile.

What else is included in the Price for Wedding Makeup?

Lashes (cluster or strip) and a top up lipstick are included with all makeup services.

How many people are you able to do makeup for on the Wedding Day?

I can do up to 4-5 people but should you have more than that,  i can always bring an additional Makeup Artist with me to cover the number of people who require makeup.

I don't wear very much makeup and not sure what look would suit me?

Any concerns regarding your makeup and what kind of look would suit you can be discussed at the wedding makeup trial.  I will ask lots of questions and show you different looks that i think would suit.  I take the trial at a slow pace and show you your makeup as we go, so you don't need to worry about waiting to see the finished look.  I do also ask your to bring a picture on your phone of any makeup that you have seen whether that be someone i have done previously or a picture from the internet, this will give me an idea of the level of makeup you are looking for and also the colours you are interested in.

How do I prepare my skin for wedding makeup?

Hydrate well drinking plenty of water, try to get into a good skin routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising.  In addition to that try to exfoliate gently twice a week in the weeks leading up to the trial and your wedding day, this all helps for a smooth canvas for your makeup to look beautiful.

Any Skincare advice and purchasing of skincare products, i do offer consultations that will help you determine any concerns or issues you might have and recommend the appropriate products to help address them.   Please visit my Skincare page for more information or contact me by the "Contact page".

I would like lashes on my Wedding Day, do you supply them?

Lashes (strip or clusters) are included in all my makeup prices.  You can choose from very natural ones right up to a full longer lash.

If you intend having your own lash extentions on before your trial and wedding day, i would advise always having a clear mascara specifically for lash extentions to tidy away any pigment from the eyeshadow pigment that may drop down on them during the makeup application.  I do try to be very careful around lash extentions and minimise any disruption to them.  With some clients with the extentions, i may only use a cream eyeshadow.

I am going to have a spray tan before my wedding, how will that affect my Wedding Makeup?

If you are intending on having a spray tan for your Wedding, also have one for your trial as a tan can make your makeup look different and you do want to see the same result on the trial as you do on your Wedding Day. Also only have the tan sprayed up to the middle of the neck and not on the face.  if the spray tan is applied to the face, it can block any open pores plus it can make the foundation when applied, appear very honey coloured.  I can match the foundation to your spray tan colour which will give you a much better natural look.


Do i need any products to touch up my makeup during my wedding day?

The only product you need would be yo lipstick to touch

The only touch up you will need to do on your Wedding Day, would be your lipstick which i will give you and all the others in your bridal party that are havving thri makeup applied by me.

All i would advise is that if you suffer with oily skin and you have found previously that your complexion can get a bit shiny, then i would advise keeping a translucent/banana coloured pressed powder and brush with you to light brush over those shiny areas should they appear.  I do apply some barriers that help with oily control but unfortunately some clients can get hot and the oil can start reappearing.

For advice on addressing oily skin and trying to reduce the shine on your skin before your wedding day, please ask me about the skincare that can help you with that.

What is the importance of a skincare routine

It helps cleanse, moisturise, protect, and nourish the skin, preventing common issues like acne, dryness, and premature aging. A consistent skincare routine can also improve the appearance of the skin and promote overall skin health.

How do I choose the right skincare products for my skin type?

First it is essential to determine your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive) before choosing the skincare products. I can assess your skin and provide you with recommendations from the Temple Spa range tailored to your specific needs. I can help you select products suitable for your skin type and address any specific concerns you may have.

What basic steps should I include in my daily skincare routine?

 A basic skincare routine typically includes cleansing, toning, moisturising, and applying sunscreen. Cleansing removes dirt, oil, and impurities, toning helps balance the skin's pH, moisturizing hydrates and nourishes the skin, and sunscreen protects against harmful UV rays.

How often should I exfoliate my skin?

The frequency of exfoliation depends on your skin type and tolerance. Typically, it is recommended to exfoliate 1-3 times a week. However, sensitive skin may require gentler exfoliation and less frequent use of exfoliating products.

How long does it take to see results from a new skincare routine?

The timeframe for noticing results can vary depending on factors such as skin type, specific concerns, and the products used.

With Temple Spa products, you will instantly notice a difference in the texture of your skin.  But generally, with some skin care products it may take a couple of weeks to see noticeable improvements to your skin. Consistency and patience are key when establishing a skincare routine.  

Can a skincare routine help with specific skin concerns such as acne or aging?

Yes, a targeted skincare routine can help address specific skin concerns. For example, ingredients like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide can be effective in treating acne, while products containing retinol or hyaluronic acid can help reduce signs of aging. I can provide guidance on the best approach for your specific concerns.

How important is it to remove makeup before bed?

 It is crucial to remove makeup before bed to allow the skin to breathe and regenerate overnight. Sleeping with makeup on can clog pores, leading to breakouts, dullness, and other skin issues. A gentle cleanser or makeup remover should be used to thoroughly remove all traces of makeup followed by toning and finishing with a moisturising night cream.

Should I moisturise even if I have oily skin?

Yes, moisturising is essential even if you have oily skin. Selecting a moisturiser specifically formulated for oily skin can help keep the skin hydrated without leaving a greasy residue. Skipping moisturiser can actually make oily skin produce more oil in an attempt to compensate for dehydration.
