Whether your preference is timeless classic or trend-led fashion, we can create the look you desire for your wedding day. And, being photographic specialists too, we know exactly what works on camera for those all important wedding day images.
Whilst we know there are cheaper artists out there, we pride ourselves on providing the best possible quality and expertise for our bridal clients.*
Wedding makeup is different to standard makeup in that it requires specialist products to ensure longevity and to translate well in photographs.
We have invested heavily in training, Mrs Twig holds an internationally recognised qualification from the International Makeup Association (IMA) and is constantly keeping up-to-date with new techniques and products.
We have also invested in an extensive pro kit which is jampacked with specialist products designed for photographic and high resolution use.
Mrs Twig works with every bride to create an individual makeup application that captures both your personality and style, whilst also incorporating the individual needs of your skin type and facial features.
As we feel it’s important to be 100% happy with your bridal makeup, we include a trial as standard within our fee. We advise brides to book your trial at least 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding day.
Trial appointments generally take place at our cosy home studio in TF4, or an agreed upon location. On the day of your wedding we travel to your venue or home, taking the stress away from having to attend an appointment elsewhere (mileage fees may apply outside of Telford, see our FAQs for more information).
All trial appointments include a comprehensive consultation process, during which we will discuss the various elements of your wedding such as colour themes and styles, as well as undertake an analysis of your skin and provide any personalised recommendations to help you get the very best from your bridal makeup.
From there we will create a look based on what we have discussed during the consultation. We may make a few amendments along the way, such as changing a lip colour or adding to an eye look. However, please note that only one full look may be trialled per appointment - it may be necessary to book a second trial.
As part of the appointment we will advise you of the products used and record everything on your individual trial sheet.
Prior to your wedding we will have discussed a schedule of events to ensure smooth running of your day. Mrs Twig will arrive at your venue or home at the designated time and work with your photographer and/or videographer to ensure you are ready for any required shots.
On the day, we generally allow between 1hr to 1.5hrs per person, depending on the complexity of the look we have agreed.
Once everyone's makeup is complete, Mrs Twig will carry out final checks on the entire party and top up any lipstick or powder as required. All wedding clients receive a complimentary top-up kit to refresh makeup throughout the day containing loose powder, a sample of your chosen lipstick and a mini lash glue (if applicable).
*Wedding makeup application is also available for Bridesmaids & Mother of the Bride/Groom. Please note a minimum booking policy may apply during peak wedding season. Please see our FAQs for further information.
