Bella Angel recommends a preview session or trial run for the bride. Our goal is to make sure you love your look. It’s important to see exactly what you will look like on your wedding day, prior to your wedding day. The preview session is the perfect opportunity to get to know your artist’s personality and to determine if they are the right fit for you. You want to be comfortable with your artist and make sure they are able to execute your desired makeup look.
A preview session allows you to test the makeup out and to try different looks. Let your artist know what you like and what you don’t like. This is not the time to hold back, work together with your artist until you love your look. If you are not the type to speak up then take a friend or relative with you, someone that knows you well and that can help you decide. The artist is there for you and they want you to leave 100% happy so please voice your opinion at your preview session.
Bella Angel uses professional makeup products like Mac, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay, Tarte, Stila, Makeup Forever, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Kat Von D, Smashbox and more. It is important to use professional makeup because it has major staying power and you can feel confident that your makeup will last up to 16 hours.
While most professional makeup artists try to work with mostly hypoallergenic products, it is possible that you may be allergic to an ingredient in a cosmetic. If you have ever had any reactions to makeup in the past you should let your artist know prior to scheduling your preview session. If your artist is aware prior to your session she can make necessary adjustments. If you have sensitive skin, you should let your artist know. Your wedding day is definitely not the day you want to discover you are allergic to a product.
Try to schedule your preview session on a day when you have a dress fitting, a date with your fiance or the the day of your bachelorette party. You want to be sure you are getting some use out of your beautiful makeup and hair.
At the end of your preview session your artist will ask you details for the wedding day. We will need to know the location you will be getting ready, the number of bridesmaids and services needed, and the time you and your party need to be ready.
Wedding day schedules tend to be pretty tight, so knowing exactly what look is desired and how long it takes to perform can save a lot of valuable time.
Every bride wants to feel beautiful and confident on her wedding day. By knowing exactly how the day will go and exactly how you will look, both you and your artist can be confident that you will look and feel your best!
