"I really wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lisa to other brides - not only an excellent makeup artist, as evidenced by the number of compliments I received on my hair and flawless make-up, but also a much-needed calming and relaxing presence on the wedding morning”
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you charge for travel costs? Are a minimum no. of people required to make a booking?
No to both! I travel to anywhere in Essex for both a trial and on the day for no extra charge.
What products do you use?
I extensively research and test all of the products in my kit. They are designed to last all day in any environment yet are still lightweight, therefore allowing your skin to breath. Depending on your skin type I mainly use Chanel, Mac or Bobbi Brown foundations. I concentrate a lot of my time on creating flawless yet glowing bases using these products but other brands in my kit include YSL, Dior and Becca.
Is a trial necessary / What happens at a trial?
Yes, I believe trials are essential when they are possible. It gives you and I the opportunity to create a stunning hairstyle that suits your face shape and hair type. The same applies to ensuring we create the perfect makeup for your skin type and tone, face shape and personal taste. At your trial, which can be held at your chosen venue, we’ll discuss your ideas and then start with your hair and makeup, plus I’ll stay until you are 100% happy. I’ll note all products used and take a photo to ensure the same look is achieved on your big day.
Do I need to pay a deposit and how can payments be made?
Your wedding or special occasion will be added to my diary once the booking is confirmed. A deposit of 50% of the wedding or special occasion cost will need to be paid once you are 100% happy with your trial. If no trial is held then a deposit is required 8 weeks before the big day. The remainder is to be paid on the day.
I accept cash, cheque or bank transfer payments.
What happens on the day?
I will arrive at the arranged time, fully equipped and once set up I will begin the hair and makeup of the bridal party before moving on to the bride. Once finished and payment has been made I will swiftly pack up and leave you to enjoy the rest of the day.
