For your makeup trial all you need to do is bring along some inspiration pictures/screenshots of looks you like. I find red carpet images are best as they are generally less edited/filtered than social media images. These along with images of yourself at times when you have liked your own make-up are perfect.
It is always good to have made a start on your skincare routine a couple of months before you go for your trial as skin prep is key.
The better condition your skin is, the better your makeup will look and wear on the day.
It is perfectly fine to use all your regular skincare before your trial, I know it can be hard to leave the house without wearing any makeup but if possible please do arrive makeup-free and if not just try to keep it light and minimal makeup so I can quickly cleanse your skin and start fresh.
If you plan on wearing tan on your wedding day, I would recommend wearing some tan for your trial too as it can really change how your makeup looks and feels. This doesn't mean you have to get a spray tan before your trial just wearing a tinted moisturiser or an instant tan is perfect to give you an idea.
It can also help if you wear a top in light/neutral colour or similar to the shade you will be wearing on the day as it will give you a better idea of the overall look as sometimes the colour of your clothes can clash with makeup or reflect on to the skin.
Lastly, if you have a lipstick you love or think you would like to wear do bring it along.
**Don't forget there's no pressure, if you prefer not to have a makeup trial or our schedules don't match up its okay. We can have a chat before your day to discuss likes and dislikes, and again do send on some inspiration pictures along with one or two of yourself so I have an idea of your style.**
