Yes, I am more than happy to travel to you for your make up appointments. I can meet you at a hotel, your home or chosen venue, but please be aware that if the area is outside of Dubai, travel charges maybe added. These will of course be made clear to you during the quotation process.
For wedding consultations, these can take place either over the phone or at our office location in Dubai. I also have a studio in my home, so initial consultations and wedding trial appointments can also take place there. I am also happy to meet you at a hotel or café if you are just visiting Dubai.
I get booked up very quickly and as this can be as far as 18 months ahead of wedding dates. I would recommend that you book early to get the date of your choice as I am usually travelling abroad on a monthly basis to various destination wedding locations. As cliché as this may sound, I would book ASAP to avoid disappointment.
Due to my many years of experience completing wedding make up and the fact that many of my bridal clients are international and based abroad, a wedding trial is not always possible. That having been said, I also don’t believe one is necessary unless you as the bride are insistent on it. Usually, a consultation will take place over the phone or in person if you are travelling into Dubai where your looks for each of the events will be discussed. I usually ask that you come prepared with some sort of mood board for each event so I can get a good idea of what you are looking for and then we can finalise the look from there. If you do wish to have a trial, please note that this is not included as part of the bridal package and is charged separately. This fee is not refundable or transferable if you wish to not go ahead with me after.
For your consultation and trial, if you have any ideas of what you would like then it may be useful to provide some pictures, either from the internet or magazines. This will help when discussing looks, but please don’t worry if you haven’t got any thing or you are unsure as to what to go for, I can make plenty of suggestions! If you have a photo of your dress, it will help me to see what style you are going for and also a swatch of your colour scheme. Some dresses can be traditional in style and others more simple or glam, but which ever dress you have chosen, I can follow on with your styles.
I can create many different styles of make-up, anything from very glamorous with smokey eyes to a ‘no make-up make-up’ look which is very fresh and natural looking.
For your trial it’s best to not wear any make-up, but if you would rather show me what you normally wear that’s fine. I will go through any skin care routines with you, should you think that you need help with this, and also advise you which other treatments you may benefit from too, i.e skin treatments in preparation for the big day. It’s a good idea too if you can wear a similar colour top to your dress, as this helps to reflect the colour back into your face and helps you to see what it will look like!
On the day of the wedding, please do not have any makeup on, just cleansed skin.
