“TOTAL Experience” Bridal Trials:

A wedding makeup trial will stop your panic! You won’t keep asking yourself  “should I go with a cousin who does her own makeup well? Should I find a trained pro or does my best friend really know how to do it? Is the price the most important thing? What will give me the promise of the best result?”

I f you are struggling to choose, it’s not your fault. Too many options and too many people guiding you leaves you dazed. And what’s more confusing is not knowing that there are different levels of artists. onthejobIn an unregulated industry, that means thousands of artists have no formal training, no hygiene know-how and little experience in different media or ranges of client skin-tones. Junior artists, intermediate artists and senior artists are all knocking at your door but you can’t tell the difference. They all have fancy websites. How do you find the one for you?

Your bridal trial offers you...

trials are done at your preferred location! Many artists insist you come to them for a trial. Colette is a 100% mobile service and always travels to you for your convenience. But she also welcomes brides to her in-home studio so you have choice.  

2.5 hours or more. Colette is never on the clock when it comes to getting your makeup right. If you need to try a few more lipsticks, you aren’t rushed to choose and wrap up your session.  

in-depth chat about you, your beauty style, your wedding details, your hubby-to-be, anything you want to share so Colette gets to know you.

 a full makeup application including free airbrush, free lashes, free lipstick sample and lip brush to take with you.  

wedding makeup fears banished! Colette is a known expert with makeup for all skin tones and ethnic cultures; she is famous for rescuing women who’ve never had that “face and neck/body match” success. The trial also promises skin that feels like it can breathe, flawless coverage of blemishes, spots and scars, current red-carpet worthy styles, and a variety of product options for even the most sensitive skin on the planet.

 changes you’d like will always be done at the trial. “Many artists will tell brides they will do the requested makeup fixes on the wedding day so they can end the trial on a tight schedule. Colette never does this. “I want them to walk out with exactly the look, including lashes, that will be their big-day face.”  

detailed notes and face-chart mapped out with your exact look, products and comments you report about your makeup once you see it.  

eyebrow tidy. Your brows are usually the most unfinished part of your every-day look; Colette will fix and reshape and offer guidance for your next salon visit if you regularly get professional brow shaping.  

product secrets are popular at trials and a chance for makeup junkies to get ideas on best eye primers, shine control, blemish cover and more. Colette is always happy to unveil the secret weapons in her kit.

 skin care advice makes a difference to the canvas you’ll bring to the wedding day; Colette’s science background helps her pinpoint exactly how to care for skin, not just for the wedding, but all the time.

 professional quality photos are key when it comes to capturing your trial look. So while it might be quick and easy to shoot your look with her cell phone, Colette knows it’s not the best way to truly show off your final face with complete detail; you can take as many selfies as you like but she will always take high quality photos to send to you by email hours after your trial so you can see how the look really works with regular and flash photography as well as in black and white images.  

scheduling beauty services can be tough. You have to figure out the photographer, the hair people and makeup. Colette will review the details and follow up with a detailed beauty schedule to sync with your other vendors.

 makeup booking security is always on a brides mind; you want to be sure that once you’ve done your trial, you will be guaranteed services. But you don’t want to be pressured on that day either; you may not be ready to confirm your booking at the trial and that’s just fine with Colette. She will hold your date while you consider your look and share it with others. No questions asked. When she gets another request for your date, she will contact you. Then you will get to sign a letter of agreement to secure her services.

 relaxing setting is the best way to describe Colette’s trial experience with her superb professional lighting, all her own tables, chairs and even music for your enjoyment, whether you come to her or she comes to you; she brings everything.

Your wedding makeup WILL match your trial look!
