Congratulations on your engagement and I hope your looking forward to your big day.

Thank you for getting in contact with Makeup Lane. I hope you’ll find all the information you’ll need about your hair, makeup and beauty needs for your wedding.

If you have any questions please get in touch here

wedding makeup artistYou will have plenty of questions and ideas with regards to your makeup and hair looks. That’s why I invite you to meet with me for an informal private consultation. Here you can ask me as many questions as you like and run through your ideas. We can go through price structures and book your trial in.

I recommend a makeup trial 8-10 weeks in advance of your wedding. Trials will be held at the studio based at The Nail & Beauty Retreat Lydney on The Forest of Dean & Wye Valley borders.

Trials Monday – Friday with weekend bookings being made in advance due to weddings.
Morning appointments 11 – 2:30 and afternoon 3pm – 6:30pm

During your trial we will discuss your requirements further and play with some ideas until the look is achieved.

It’s a good idea to get a mood board or scrap book of looks you like and styles you wish to go for. If you bring this along to the trial and consultation we can work through the ideas together.

I recommend bringing a white top to your trial or a top with the same colouring as your dress. This way we can check the colour balance.

To sum up

Thank you for taking the time to find out about me. When I have received all the information I will send you back a non-obligation quote. From here, should you wish to go ahead and book a consultation you can find all the ways in which to contact me here.
