How should I prepare my skin?

Leading up to your event, regular facials are ideal along with a good daily skincare routine. Have your waxing completed at least one day prior to your special occasion. The night before gently exfoliate your face and on the day ensure your face is freshly cleansed and moisturized. It's important that your eyebrows are expertly shaped.. Ali is able to do this for you prior to the day. For more details see Ali's Ultimate Eyebrow Package.

Will I need to touch up my makeup?

Your foundation and eye makeup is applied to ensure maximum wear, so it will last for hours without a touch up. If your skin is prone to oiliness, Ali recommends a powder compact or blotting papers. You will need to touch up your lipstick. It's a good idea to allocate one of your bridesmaids as 'makeup attendant'. She will check your makeup before the photos and keep an eye on you throughout the evening to ensure you look your best.

Ali can also supply an optional 'touch-up' kit which may include essentials such as blotting paper, compact powder and lipstick. Alternatively Ali can make a list of products for you to purchase.

Should I have my hair or makeup completed first?

It's preferable to have your hair done first followed by makeup. If your hairstylist is present, Ali will liaise with them to determine the best outcome for you.

What hygiene processes do you have in place?

Ali observes strict hygiene practices; using a hand sanitiser between clients. Her makeup brushes are sanitised between each client and thoroughly washed each day.
