Every bride is nervous about her Big Day.
You want to look your best and be the most stunning anyone has ever seen.
Therefore, you want to be sure that your makeup is flawless and
your hair isn't flying around and that everything is perfect.
Completely understandable. After all, you're only going to do this
We at Picture Perfect Makeovers offer free*
consultations for the bride and if necessary, the bridal party. We will discuss your needs and show you
pictures to assess what kind of style you're looking for, whether it be - Modern, Traditional, Western or
Natural. We will also make suggestions on how to optimize your natural beauty.
We recommend that before you come for a consultation
or even a trial, you look through magazines and even the internet and find pictures of famous people whose style you admire
and even if you can find hairstyles that you like. This gives us an idea of what you want and gives us a foundation
to start from! Saves us from trying to work out what you want from a description and avoids a lot of confusion.
If possible, we also recommend that you bring your bridal
outfit and jewellery, or at least a part of it, so that we can assess the colors and ensure we can match it.
In particular, for brides wearing red, we recommend that
you take a color swatch to a department store and match a quality red lipstick. This is particularly because shades
of red are very difficult to match and even a slight discrepancy can make an enormous difference in pictures, especially
with the color red. This is just a precaution because we don't want you to be disappointed in any way! Of course, you
don't HAVE to wear red. Gone are the days when the bride had to wear red lipstick. Now we can find a lipstick
color that will enhance your lips and allow the focus to remain on your eyes.
We do not recommend a trial for all our brides. Especially
if you know what you want! There are several reasons for this:
1. You won't look the same in a trial as you
would on your wedding. On your wedding day you get a certain glow which enhances your beauty which you won't get in
2. You want to look stunning on your Big Day
and if you and your close family/friends have already seen exactly how you're going to look, then it isn't the same "wow"
3. If you know what you want and have pictures,
there's no need for a trial. A consultation is more than ample. Why waste time and money? You have more
important things to do in the run up to the wedding.
We understand that you can be unsure but we are professionals and
we know what we are doing. However, if you're mind is not at ease we will always fit you in for a trial. We want
you to be comfortable.
*Please note, if you do not maintain a bridal booking with us
then consultations are charged at $30 an hour. Minimum 1 hour charge.
