FROM WEDDING MAKEUP TRIAL TO WEDDING DAY

FROM WEDDING MAKEUP TRIAL TO WEDDING DAY

Wedding makeup trials are the start of a brides journey to find the right makeup artist for her big day. In this blog post I wanted to show photographs taken from a bridal makeup trial. I take before and after photographs during the trial to show the bride what can be achieved.

Yet it is best to get the strip in place whilst the glue is still drying and has pliability.
