Makeup Trials FAQ
There are always a lot of questions in relation to trials. We have put together some information to help answer any questions you may have about this process...
A trial is the opportunity for you to see your artists work before your wedding / event day. It is also the opportunity to try out any ideas you may have for hair and makeup. For this reason it is a good idea to devote some time to having a think about what you would like to try. Gathering pictures from magazines or other sources is also helpful to your artist. It doesn’t matter if you are unsure as to exactly what you want, just a small amount of direction is
enough to help steer your artist in the right direction.
You are more than welcome to bring other people with you for the trial. If the opinion of your best friend / sister / mother is important please have them with you at the trial. It is too late to change the hair and makeup or try a different look once you get home.
Many people want to coordinate their trial for the same time as another special occasion they may have coming up. We will try and accommodate your preference for a trial time, however it is not something that we can guarantee.
During the colder months we are a little more flexible, however due to the fact that we are booked out during the warmer months, it can be a little harder to arrange. Your patience and understanding regarding our busy schedules would be much appreciated.
We are happy to do a weekend trial. Again, availability is dependent on our other bookings, afternoons are usually the best time.
Trials usually take around 1 hour. If you are having a hair and makeup trial together (performed by the one person), you may need up to 2 hours.
Trials are either done at your location or at the artist’s personal studio. This is something that can be discussed with your artist.
Trials can be done up to a year before your wedding / event. We do not take bookings anymore than a year in advance.
Your artist will hold your event date until the trial is done. This means your trial will need to be booked in within 4 weeks of your artist contacting you. Once you have done your trial and wish to progress with the booking a $50 deposit is required to secure the date.
All deposits are payable directly to Serina Martic and will need to be paid within 14 days of your trial. They are not refundable after 7 days of making the payment.
If you didn’t want to do your trial until months down the track (closer to your wedding / event date) but wanted to secure your booking, your artist will need the $50 deposit up front. This will lock in your wedding / event date,
meaning that you can then do your trial at any stage.
