FAQs | Makeup Artist Edinburgh

Everything you need to know before hiring your Makeup Artist Edinburgh, Fife & Central Scotland!

As a makeup artist I have found I am getting asked the same questions a lot, so I thought I would compile a list of the main questions to help all you lovely brides-to-be in your planning!

What brands do you use?

One of of the great things about being a freelance makeup artist Edinburgh is I can pick and choose and use the best products from across many different brands. Most of my makeup is MAC, NARS, Illamasqua, Chanel, Sara Hill, Dior, Anastasia Beverly Hill, Laura Mercier, Becca & Tom Ford. All products are tried and tested, making sure I carry kit for every skin colour and type.

How do I secure a booking?

I take a £20 deposit by bank transfer to secure your booking. This will then be taken off your final bill. Once your deposit is paid I will send over your receipt and will no longer take booking for that day that will conflict with your wedding. Your big day is my priority!

Would you recommend a trial?

Short answer, yes! I strongly advise for a trial for the bride and anyone who may be a little anxious about getting their makeup done. It gives complete peace of mind to you and you know exactly what your makeup is going to look like on the day. To find out all about trials why not check out my blog all about them!

How long does it take per person? 

My approximate timings are 45 minutes per person, 1 hour for the bride. However, I can tailor timings to what is necessary for your wedding morning.

How many people can you accommodate?

I can individually do 7 people per bridal party. If you have a larger bridal party I have other amazing artists I work with and together we can cater for more numbers.

I’m worried about a skin condition, can you help?

Of course! I find quite often brides are feeling a little run down by the time it’s their big day, which is why my kit is filled with products to soothe, cover and enhance your skin. We would discuss anything in particular you are worried about before your big day to give you complete peace of mind!


Do you know any other suppliers in my area?

Having been in the wedding industry for a few years now I have made some great connections. I would be happy to pass some of the names on to you.

I love hearing from you future brides-to-be, if there’s anything I’ve missed please ask away!
