I use a range of luxury, high-end makeup brands and products such as Giorgio Armani, Dior, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Tarte Cosmetics, Huda Beauty, Fenty Beauty and many more.

Typically I allow 45 minutes for bridesmaids, guests, mothers etc. and I allow up to 90 minutes for the bride. This extra time is allocated so that there is space for touch ups and/or any additions to the look.

Yes absolutely. I travel throughout all of Victoria as well as interstate and overseas.

If you have already decided on your Makeup Artist and secured your date it is okay to leave your trial until closer to the wedding date. This could be as close as 4-6 weeks prior.

If you are still in the process of selecting a Makeup Artist and using the trial to decide if the artist is for you, then I would do this quite far in advance. That way you can try a few artists and ensure your date is still available which you can check with your artist prior to booking.

Thank you for helping me feel beautiful on my special day! Effie was gracious and calming. She was very organised which settled many of my nerves. Her maternal, nurturing energy allowed me to switch off for those minutes I was having makeup done with her. She used high quality products and was meticulous in her clean approach. A fantastic experience with a wonderful woman. I highly recommend Effie as your makeup artist for your special day!!

Thank you so much Effie! I absolutely LOVED my wedding make up and it couldn’t have been more perfect. My skin and make up on the day were flawless. A fantastic level of service from the pre wedding trials, leading up to the day and on the day. Effie is patient, bubbly, passionate and kind! I will be booking my make up again with Effie for other events!

Effie absolutely nailed my brief with how I wanted my make up, it was the perfect natural dewy look, better than I could have imagined. She was so warm and welcoming and made myself, my bridesmaids and family feel so comfortable. Could not recommend her enough!

Effie is the absolute best! She is incredibly talented at makeup, she is highly professional and she is such a pleasure to chat to. My family and bridesmaids loved having Effie with us on the morning of my wedding. She is such a calming presence. Effie always makes you feel so beautiful and the best version of yourself. She really listens to you and achieves the exact look you want. I have had Effie do numerous different looks for me and she always gets it so right.

When's the best time to start skin care for my wedding?

Can you recommend a simple routine to follow?

Effie Mia Makeup

It is best to begin a new skincare regimen and/or professional treatments at least 6 months prior to your wedding date. The basic routine to follow is to  cleanse, use a serum and moisturiser day and night. The specific productsw would be customised based on your personal skin needs and concerns. Your makeup artist will be able to guide you and provide reccomendations. I personally make sure to include a skin consultation during your trial.

Should I get eyelash extensions before the wedding?

I haven't had them before so looking for advice on a trial, or how early to get them before the wedding. Thank you!

Effie Mia Makeup

This is a personal preference but as a Makeup Artist we can work with or without this. It is however easier to customise a look for you on your day if there are no eyelash extensions. If you are going to try this out, try at least 3 months prior to your wedding date. Some people react to eyelash extensions so its best to try it well before the wedding.
