Good to know tips to and how to maximise your time in the chair...
- What happens in a lesson?
In an artistry lesson I teach you how to do makeup on a model that you bring along. The techniques are different for working on someone else, and we go more in depth with them. I give 2hours for an artistry lesson so that we can cover more.
- How long does makeup application take?
- How much will it cost?
- How do I pay?
- Do I need to bring my own lashes?
- I'm not sure what look I want, what do I do?
Bring along 2-3 pictures of makeup you like. Makeup is visual, and can be difficult to describe, so pictures give me a base idea of your style.
The definition of a "smokey eye" or a "natural look" varies greatly from person to person. The perfect smokey eye for client A, could be too natural for client B, and too dramatic for client C!
If there are any specific things you do or do not like, just let me know (e.g. winged liner, strong brows, glitter etc.) - the more info the better!
- I just want to try something new and different
- I know exactly what I want, is that ok?
- I'll be wearing makeup during the day before my appointment, what do I do?
- I will be cleansing my skin before my appointment, should I moisturise?
- Will I have a say in the look after I have shown my pictures?
Queries about bridal makeup and the booking process...
- How important is a makeup artist for my wedding? Do I really need a professional?
A professional artist is advised because:
1) Having someone apply your makeup will take one more thing of your agenda for the morning, and will put your mind at ease.
2) Booking a professional gives you the peace of mind, knowing that the artist has the skills and proper practices, required for your bridal makeup. Though you might trust a friend, employing a professional does avoid any sticky situations that may arise.
3) As the bride, you will be photographed all day by family, friends and a professional. These pictures will be looked back on for years to come.
4) It also gives you a period of time to sit down, relax, and maybe have a glass of bubbly, while you're being pampered!
- I have no idea what look I want! What should I do?

- My wedding is some time away, should I make a booking now?
- What is the booking process?
If you are happy to book I take a 50% deposit. The remaining balance is paid on or before the date. (Cash only is accepted for any balance being paid on the wedding day).
I will then email you the bridal contract which will outline all of the details (timing, address, balance due etc) for you to sign digitally.
We can then look at booking you in for a trial at a time that suits you. I take my trials Mon-Thurs from my private studio in Ballincollig.
- Why should I book a trial?
- Will a false tan affect the makeup?
- Can I book a trial without making a booking beforehand?
