Questions and Answers

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

I have sensitive skin and am worried about wearing makeup?

This is a comment I hear more often than not and I can totally relate too, having sensitive skin myself.

There are many ways to work with senstive skin, all my products are of high quality and to date I have not had anyone react to them, however, to ease any concern, I am more than happy to undertake a test behind the back of your ear on your trial to double check if there is any reactions. 

Always make sure you advise your artist if you have an known allergies or senstive skin. 

Do I need to have a makeup trial? If I have one how long will it take?

No you don't need to have a makeup trial, the option to have a trial is totally your choice.

However, a trial can be very beneficial as it allows you to meet with your artist and go through makeup styles or ideas you have. It also allows you to wear the makeup and see if you are happy with the look or want to make changes for the day. 

I generally ask for about and hour and half to be put aside for trials, this allows us to meet, chat about colours/styles, what skin type you are, if you have any concerns and then for me to apply the make up.

About 95% of my brides have trials. 

How does timing work on my wedding day?

Timing is something we will touch on when booking then discuss more at your trial.

Start times may vary wthin reason depending on the schedule and how many ladies you have in your bridal party but you'll be completed in plenty of time in a relaxed environment.  It takes approx 45 mins each lady and generally an hour for the bride, as I like to allow a bit more time to pamper her. 

Will my makeup last all day ?


My brides are always pleased on the day to recieve their complimentary touch up kit that includes their lip colour, lip brush, blotting paper, tissues, lash glue and some cotton tips to keep them looking fresh all day. 

The eye makeup I use will remain intact as waterproof products and an eyeshadow primer are used.  I also use products that will stay put with minimal touch ups and that will look beautiful on camera.

What is required to book my wedding date?

I require a 20% deposit to secure all bookings. Once your deposit has been recieved you will be notified via email and a confirmation on your booking will be advised. 

The remaining balance is due in full a week before your special day.  Paying in advance allows you to have a stress free day and not have to worry about having cash available on the day.

You are also welcome to pay your booking off in instalments, just let me know and I am happy to work something out with you.

Mel was perfect! She was amazing, her technique is incredible and she made me so stress-free! Her bright and bubbly personality was electric and put us all in an amazing mood. What she did with my makeup, my bridesmaid and my mother was beautiful. Her time management on the day was spot on and even finished earlier than expected.

Mel is amazing! When Mel did my trial for my wedding, i was beyond happy with how it turned out. i let Mel know what i was wanting and she did it with making it suit my skin tone. The day of my wedding, my makeup and my bridesmaids makeup was beautifully done and everyone complimented us on it. The day was a 38 degrees day and our makeup held up in the heat. Mel is very talented and i would rebook her in a heartbeat! Thanks Mel!

She was really lovely and very nice to deal with, and came out to the venue to do our hair and makeup for us. We had a chat about what I wanted and she gave some recommendations. She did 2 trials for my hair beforehand to make sure I got exactly what I wanted! I got my hair, bridesmaids and my Nana's hair which she did so well! She was very kind, I would definitely get her again.

Mel was amazing. The products that she uses is suitable for very sensitive skin which I have and are not tested on animals. I am not a make up person at all but she made me feel amazing. She also made my mum and sister feel very comfortable as well. Very reasonably priced as well. Would definitely book her again if I had a special occasion come up.
