It is essential that you have a make-up trial/hair trial before your Wedding – and it’s optional before your Prom Ball or any other important event. It is an ideal opportunity for you to discuss with me your desired look, taking int16113444_10207973576921819_2402948431801680131_oo consideration your skin type/condition,  the colour scheme for the day, your dress etc. Trial is highly recommended if you unsure what style of make-up is best for you. It is also a good opportunity to ensure that you are not sensitive to any of the make-up products used. I will listen to your requirements and create a beautiful look that you will feel entirely happy with.

On your wedding day/event, I will arrive at the chosen location at the time agreed at your trial. After your hair has been styled, I will re-create the look that has been personally tailored to your requirements, whilst ensuring you are relaxed and enjoying the whole experience.

Of course, you do not need to wait for a special occasion to look your best, I also offer hair and make-up services for any occasion such as prom balls, hen parties, girls nights out, birthday parties as well a corporate and other small events.

BRIDAL

There are many benefits to booking a make-up artist for your wedding day:

  • You can achieve the perfect look you desire for your wedding day
  • Save you time and money – as Using high end, professional products are expensive to buy, it also takes time to source the correct products
  • Extra assistance on your wedding day, helping you and your bridesmaids into dresses etc.
  • Make-up Artist are carrying items such a safety pins, pain killers, plasters, hairspray, nail polish, even nail glue and  antiperspirant  – so we become invaluable help in emergency situation for You, bridesmaids or your guests!

It is essential to book a MAKE-UP/HAIR TRIAL and usually takes place  8-3 weeks up to 12 month prior to your wedding date, Your make-up trial is a depth consultation carried in order to understand your skin type, select the right products, and colours. It is opportunity to ensure that you are not sensitive to any of the make-up products used. Any look can be created – from very natural to a more glamorous – all depend from you!  It is advisable to bring along cuttings from magazines and any samples of colours you are using for your wedding.

For Heirstyling best to show me max 5  photos of hairstyle that you like, and eventually show hairstyles /details that you dislike. Please wash your hair evening before, for normal to dry hair(best to use silicone free shampoo – silicone in shampoo affecting curls, long-lasting of curls, and your hair) or early morning the same day if  your hair are greasy. Please blow dry after.  Conditioner only at the ends. Please DO NOT straight, curl it, also DO NOT appy any other products or oils e.g. argan oils, fizzy, straightening solutions etc.

It is best to attend the trial with no make-up – no mascara please. Your make-up will then be applied, usually  on trial I do one eye different, another different to show you difference, or very natural make-up first, and then alternation by adding more colour for bold eye. I use mainly individual eyelashes – from my experience this are easier to get used to by clients, gives more natural effect, and long lasting finish.
Once you are happy with your make-up, all colours and products used will be recorded in “the client chart” kept on file ready for your wedding day.

Don’t forget to confirm time and location for your venue and for my arrive on day in about one up to two weeks before your wedding day. It’s also the best time to discuss any changes in your skin condition and make-up alternation if needed.

Due to the high demand for the services in summer season, it is essential you book early trial and your big day  to avoid disappointment.  Check the availability of your date!

Halloween Make-up / Special Effects / Theatrical Make-up

Whether it’s Halloween Night Out or Home Party – many of us want to look extraordinary, fantasy, fairytale or extremely scary…

NOTE: I started gaining experience on sfx field by creating wounds with liquid latex and diy bloods… However, trough my own experience I moved quickly to high quality and all professional grade products(from top SFX brands like Kryolan, Mouldlife, Dermacolor, Ben Nye e.g. face paints, blood, ‘latex like’ filling products).  Safety of my clients is very important, so there is no place for DIY unknown & unsure recipes. For sculpting wounds I use now mainly ‘Scoulpt Gel ABC’, to cover big part of body SFX ‘Patsil Gel’- that gives best, extremely realistic result for hours, cures faster and gives more pleasant skin feeling (than latex). I also use professional grade liquid and scratch bloods – can be held in mouth, do no lives marks no skin and clothing (no guaranty on whites).  In 2014 one my SFX “stabed wound” creation was published & had front page of Australian “Freque Mgazine”.BEAUTY AND BRIDAL’s by DOROTA wounds and scars effects looks extremely realistic! …  That why I am not going to publish any of it on this page – I do believe that not everyone wish to look at it! – but If any of you is interested with that type of make-ups – I recommend to visit my Special Effect Gallery on my second Facebook Page – NOTE: please do not look if you sensitive for view of blood(!) DOROTA MUA – SFX FACEBOOK GALLERY.

I highly recommended to get in touch with me for booking at last 1-2 weeks before the event – I am strongly recommend to perform patch tests of some professional product that are used in creating the sfx effects… (patch test should be carry out no later then 48 – 24 hours before booking day) f you are unable to travel to my location to make a patch test, it is not a problem! – I can send tiny samples by post! – I want be sure that you would be absolutely safe when products would be applied!
