Weddings: Good to Know

Bridal Hair

There are lots of different styles to chose from, such as all up, half up, half down or all down.  We can help you find the best hairstyle for you or you may know already the perfect style for you.  You may want to add hair extensions  or use clip-in hair extensions to give more volume or length to some styles. These can be purchased through us. We have a large selection of hair samples to match the extensions to your hair colour.  The use of hair accessories, like real flowers from your bouquet, tiaras, or pearl hairpins can complete the look.  The choice is yours.

Wedding Airbrush Makeup

It is the latest innovative way to apply your foundation via an mini airgun which sprays the foundation onto your skin in a fine mist and dries on contact to give a youthful, natural, fresh look to your skin. This will create the perfect base for the rest of the makeup to make it last all day and through to the early hours.  Brides, their mother and bridesmaids can complete the look with flawless, weightless airbrush makeup.

The foundation formula is water resistant, silicone free, paraben free and is not tested on animals.  Unlike traditional makeup that is applied with a brush or sponge, airbrush makeup foundation is sprayed in a super-fine mist onto the skin, so its “sits evenly” and gives the coverage that you need. The result is a flawless, lightweight and natural base that will last all day.  It will cover red spots, brown spots, blemishes as well as dark circles under your eyes.  It minimises skin imperfections whilst giving skin a beautiful natural looking result. Foundation colours can be mixed to provide the perfect match for your skin.  It takes 5 minutes for the foundation stage to be complete, allowing the rest of the makeup to be applied with brushes or airbrush.

Wedding Traditional Makeup

Complete the look with wedding makeup by one of our expert makeup artists who have an eye for detail.  We offer traditional makeup which is applied with a brush and we use brands such as Bobbi Brown and Arbonne.  We can match  your skin tone, cover blemishes well and create a lasting finish.   We also have the Arbonne range for an organic option and for sensitive skins.  The airbrush option is an alternative for lighter appearance of foundation on the skin or if you need extra coverage 2 layers can be applied.
