Contract Terms and conditions
Thank you for your interest in
booking me to complete your Makeup services. Please carefully review these
terms and conditions. Paying the deposit is confirmation that these terms and
conditions are agreed by both parties.
Your date is only secure once
a deposit is received, I am unable to hold dates.
Cancelations for The full
wedding must be at least 6 weeks before the date of your wedding. Cancelations
after this period will mean you’re responsible for the balance owed.
to the bridal Party
Please understand that if a
member of your bridal party changes their mind about having their makeup done,
I must be given 6 weeks’ notice before the date of the wedding. Otherwise the
cost of their makeup will be charged. I apply discounts and factor in timings
based on the original booking.
If an additional guest asks to
have their makeup applied I will of course do this if I have the time available
once I have completed all members of the party as detailed on the invoice.
Additional on the day makeups will be charged at £35 per person and is payable
in cash on the day.
I must be paid in full for all
services required on the wedding date at least 4 weeks before the date of the wedding.
Cash on the day is no longer accepted. I
understand that some bridesmaids/mums pay for their own, this needs to be
transferred to the bride, for the bride to pay the final payment in full.
Skin should be cleansed and
makeup free ahead of the trial. Ideally the client should be following a
skincare regime in the run up to the wedding. If skin could be exfoliated the
day before the trial that would be brilliant. Skincare is incredibly important in
helping how makeup looks and lasts.
It is advised that you wear a
white top for your trial to reflect what your makeup would look like.
If your having a false tan for
your wedding day please also have it for your trial. I match colours and looks
to your skin tone, if you’re a different skin tone on your wedding morning it
can mean the makeup look needs to be completely changed to compliment your skin
tone. For example blush pink tones look beautfiul on paler skin but then if you
have a tan these colours can look dull and not very complementary.
If your having individual
lashes I recommend you also have these for your trial. Applying strip lashes
over individuals never look as good or fresh and therefore I advise you go for
one or the other.
Trials are payable in cash on the trial day,
please ensure you have the money to pay on the day.
Its useful to see images of
the dress/hair style/jewellery etc when discussing what sort of makeup look
would suit the client, their colour theme and their outfit.
Brides are welcome to show me
images of the makeup looks they like. I can then discuss with the bride which
colours would suit them once Ive seen their hair colour,eye colour and skintone.
Please note many pintrest/ instagram images are highly edited.
Trials are usually 6-8 weeks
before the wedding and mostly completed on weekdays, as Saturdays are very busy
with weddings. I can do Saturday trials sometimes out of season and I work 1
Sunday a month. I will send you my availability when your booking your trial.
A bridal trial is
approximately a 90 minute appointment.
If you wish to book in for a longer trial or to try out numerous
different looks please let me know this when booking your trial in.
Bridesmaids/mums trials are
for up to a 60 minute appointment
Additional time is charged at
£25 per hour
If you are late I will have to
leave at the scheduled time as I usually have more than one trial in a day and
also have to cover my childcare.
I ask that you do not eat or
make phone calls whilst I am working on your makeup.
If you wish to see Makeup as
we complete each step please ask and I will show you, I ask that you don’t look
at yourself in a mirror of phone whilst I am applying makeup as this is very
Please do not let your guests
or children touch my kit, I have had items broken or people try to put fingers
in products. If you or a member of your party breaks an item from my kit or
puts fingers in products you will be charged for the product.
Once your makeup has been
applied, I provide you with lip products and a brush for touch ups. I am no
longer liable for retouching your makeup due to eating/drinking etc after you
have left the makeup chair.
I arrange to arrive giving
myself 10 minutes setting up time before beginning my first makeup Please
ensure the first person is ready to begin as I work to a schedule with the
I will send you a timetable
for the makeup applications ahead of the wedding day.
All clients will need to sign
an allergy awareness form, declaring any allergies before makeup is applied.
I do provide a free service
for under 10’s which includes lip gloss and blusher for up to 3 children.
If any member of the party has
a serious or contagious eye infection I am unable to apply eye makeup to them.
I am unable to apply makeup to
anyone who has open cuts or cold sores. I can provide disposable lip brushes
I do not apply individuals own
makeup unless discussed at the trial as I am unable to guarantee how it
photographs or lasts on the day. This is also due to my insurance.
If for any reason due to ill
health or circumstances beyond my control I am unable to attend our booking, I
will do my best to find a replacement artist.
I will also refund the balance already paid.
