Questions and Answers

I have sensitive skin and am worried about wearing makeup?

Mel Peach - Makeup Artist

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?

Mel Peach - Makeup Artist

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?

Mel Peach - Makeup Artist

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 ?

Mel Peach - Makeup Artist


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?

Mel Peach - Makeup Artist

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.

Thank you for the lovely review Lisa. It was a honour to be a part of your special day, thank you for asking me. You looked beautiful! Xx

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!

I have been lucky enough to have had my makeup done 3 times now by the lovely Mel; two friends weddings and my own wedding last week. Mel never fails to amaze me with how perfect she gets it every time. I have sensitive skin and have had eczema flare ups over the last few months and this was something that Mel was able to accommodate without any issues. I couldn't have asked for a better person to do my makeup on my special day. I would 100% recommend Mel if you want perfect makeup for any occasion.

19 Feb 2022

Mel has now done my makeup for 3 events; 2 friends weddings and most recently my own. Mel never fails to amaze me with how perfect she gets it every time. I have sensitive skin and have had numerous eczema flare ups over recent months and Mel had no issues with accommodating this. Mel stayed with us until everyone was happy and any touchups were fixed. Mel is professional, friendly and amazing at what she does. I would 100% recommend her to anyone who needs makeup done for any occasion.

Mel did an absolutely amazing job on our makeup. Mel did mine, my mum, maid of honour and bridesmaids makeup. She did the makeup in a way that was simply beautiful without being too much and was easily able to adapt to our different skin types. Mel is very friendly and easy to get along with and made the entire process so easy. The makeup lasted all day/night we didn't need to reapply or touch up anything. Would highly recommend.
