A FEW FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How far in advance can I book my trial before my wedding?
We suggest having your trial two to three weeks before your wedding. However, we will schedule your trial for whenever is the most convenient for you.
How long do your make-up applications take?
Our answer is usually – until the look is perfect, and until the client is 100 percent happy! However, if we have to put a time limit on it – we like to have 1 hour 30 minutes for bridal make-up so that there is no rush and the bride can give instructions to all who need her, without feeling as though she must sit dead still for us.
We like to have at least 1 hour 15 minutes for a complete make-up application, this is for event make-up and for styled shoots. This includes the application of lashes, if requested.
However, we are able to shorten our application time to 45 minutes – 1 hour in the case of bridal party make-up applications, and for clients that need their make-up done, but don’t have an awful lot of time!
Do you stay for touch ups during styled shoots?
We do indeed, if the client requests that we do. The client will be charged initially for the make-up application, and then an additional fee will be charged for every hour spent on location.
Which do I do first – make-up or hair?
It all depends on the hairstyle. If the hairstyle involves waves/curls/volume, then we suggest that you have your hair curled/pinned/set before we start with your make-up. In doing so, your hair has time to ‘rest’ and take on magical waves/curls/volume whilst we work on your face. :)
We will then do approximately 80 percent of your make-up. After this, we then suggest that the hairstylist removes the pins and styles your hair. Once your hair is just the way you want it, we will do the remaining bits of the make-up application. For instance – your eyelashes, lipstick and other touch ups.
Do you do hairstyling as well?
Again, it all depends on the hairstyle that you wish to create. If you are after soft waves/curls, then we are your ladies for the job! If you have a more intricate hairstyle in mind, then we are more than happy to make suggestions of excellent hairstylists with whom we have worked in the past.
Where are trials done?
We come to you! Wherever you wish to have your trial done – we will be there. If the trial is set to take place outside of Stellenbosch/Durbanville, we will charge separately for travel. The same applies to all make-up applications done outside of Stellenbosch/Durbanville.
