Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to have a trial?
The Bride’s makeup always includes a trial as we believe this is not the day to take chances. This comprehensive service includes a pre-trial questionnaire so we can make the most of our time together and ensure the colour pallet and style for yourself and your bridal party is in harmony with the overall look and theme of the wedding.
You’ll also be sent a customized look book afterwards so you be confident you’ll look and feel amazing on your wedding day as a Modern Makeup Bride.
Do I have to buy my own makeup?
We supply all the make-up and eyelashes required for the applications. Makeup does require maintenance, so at the trial we also provide advice of what products you’ll need to touch up with and how to re-apply them throughout the day.
How long does each application take?
At Modern Makeup Brides, we always allow 45 – 60 minutes for each member of the bridal party to be made up. Our makeup artists are always punctual as we are mindful of the overall schedule of the day. We will take the time to work out the
finer details at your trial so you can relax and enjoy your time to get ready on the day.
What products do you use?
We only use professional standard products from the best brands. Brands favoured by Modern Makeup include Nars, Stila, MAC, Bobbi Brown and Kryolan. These products feel lightweight, yet are long lasting and photograph flawlessly.
What do you charge?
As each bride is individual and her wedding unique, please contact Sarah directly so we can discuss your requirements in more detail and provide you with an accurate quote.
