Trial Information

Why have a trial?

  • We don't believe in one size fits all looks and we want your guests- and fiance! to recognize you on your wedding day. We will collaborate to create a makeup look that highlights you!

  • You will receive a skin consultation based on your skin type, needs, as well as your skin concerns. We can build a plan for your pre-event skin care routine. Good skin is the canvas for good makeup!

  • We take into consideration your skin tone and choose colors, textures and formulas that will not only look beautiful in photos, it will look like a more glamorous version of yourself. Using the most innovative, professional products, we work with you every step of the way.

  • Instead of stressing about your exact look on your big day, booking a wedding trial give you the freedom to tweak and perfect your final look BEFOREHAND. This means, finding the right foundation and the right foundation shade, find which false lashes (if any) works best for you, and how the makeup will last throughout the day (after the trial).

  • It’s one less thing to worry about! Because you’ve went through with your trial, now everything is spelled out for the big day. This will give you peace of mind and lets you concentrate on other things.



  • Please provide us with a picture of yourself in daylight and of your makeup inspiration photos prior to your appointment. This will help us better prepare for the appointment and ensure you’re happy with the end result. You can also share your Pinterest board with me @Denise Owen.

  • Day Of:

    • Moisturize & apply lip balm.

    • Your makeup application does include a light exfoliation as well as skin type appropriate moisturization /prep however, letting it soak in the night before will help your skin look its best!
