Bella Angel recommends a makeup preview session or trial run for the bride.
It’s important to see exactly what you will look like on your wedding day, before your wedding day. 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. A makeup preview session is also the perfect opportunity to get to know your artist’s personality. You want make certain they are the right fit for you. A bride should feel comfortable with her artist and be sure they are able to execute your desired makeup look.
Our goal is to make sure you love your look.
A preview session allows you to test the makeup out and to try different looks. Let your artist know what you like and even more importantly what you don’t like. Please do not hold back your thoughts and feelings. Work together with your artist until you love your look. We always recommend taking a friend or relative with you to your trial. Someone that knows you well and that can help you decide is the perfect person take with you. The artist is there for you and they want you to leave 100% happy so please voice your opinion at your preview session.

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 a reaction to makeup in the past you should let your artist know when you schedule your preview session. Giving your artist a heads up prior to your preview session is helpful so they can make 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. 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.
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 look.
At the end of your preview session your artist will ask you the details for the wedding day. We will need to know the location you will be getting ready, how many services you will need and the time you and your party need to be ready. This information will help us plan better for your wedding day services.
