Even the most beautiful natural face looks better on camera with properly applied makeup.
Precious memories are captured in your wedding photos which will be treasured, admired and displayed for years to come. This is the single most important day for you to look your absolute best ! When hiring Iris Cosmetics for your bridal makeup, you can be assured to present a flawless, picture-perfect image of yourself; the look you've always dreamed of! I will come to your home, or location of your choice, so you and your bridal party can all be pampered and have fun getting ready together. Mothers, sisters, aunts and flower girls should also be included as they want to feel special and look beautiful too. (For rates, see Packages.)
When providing bridal makeup services, I use professional quality products, including my own line of cosmetics, Iris Cosmetics, which are formulated to blend better, last longer, look better and feel better than other products. All my products are hypo-allergenic and are applied using professional hygenic techniques.
I can accommodate any size wedding party and am experienced with all skin types.
Most brides prefer a fairly natural look, however, the best way to decide on your wedding day makeup look is to have a consultation, or better yet, a Makeup Trial. I offer free consultations where you have a chance to meet me, discuss your ideas and receive professional advice. I highly recommend a Bridal Makeup Trial which includes a full makeup application, allowing you to try things you are unsure of. Together we can choose the right colours, look and style that will accentuate your features, hide your flaws and compliment your dress and overall wedding theme.
The key elements of your wedding day makeup are to look like YOU, at your very best, and for it to last all day, with minimal touch-ups. It should enhance your natural features, create a flawless complexion and appear subtle but beautiful in your photos. It should also reflect your personality, not just your physical features.
I will do my very best to accommodate your schedule, bringing assistants with me whenever necessary, at no extra cost to you.
Bridal makeup application will take approximately 30 - 35 minutes. Makeup for all others will take approximately 20 - 25 minutes each. A few minutes between people is required for cleaning of brushes and implements. False lash application and other special makeup requirements, i.e. tattoo, scar, tan-line cover-up or body makeup, will require some extra time.
It is best to book my services 4-6 months before your wedding. A Trial can be done anytime, but to avoid disappointment, it is recommended to book as early as possible.
