What is Airbrush Makeup?
We offer airbrush makeup using Airbase, which is one of the UK’s leading airbrush brands. It is foundation sprayed on to the skin using an air gun attached to a compressor, which means that the product is applied in a fine mist. This makes the product lightweight, yet the coverage is excellent. It is silicone based so warms to your skin, effectively setting and providing a water resistant base for up to 18 hours. It is also matte and HD ready, perfect for photography!
Do you do trials at the weekend?
I only undertake trials on Tuesday daytimes or Saturday afternoons subject to availability only. I am fully committed with weddings at the weekend, and wouldn’t find it fair to either a bride or you to rush either of you, so by undertaking trials in the week enables me to allocate enough time. Daylight hours are required to ensure that the lighting is good enough.
How long does a trial last and when should I have it?
Makeup or hair only trials last for about 1.5-2 hours depending on what you chose to have. Combined trials can last a minimum of 2-3 hours. We recommend that trials take place around 3 months before the big day.
Do you come to me for my trial?
Yes, Flame Beauty offer a purely mobile service, making it more convenient for you.
Do you cater for International Weddings?
Yes we do! Take the stress out of overseas wedding planning and take a UK based stylist with you! Please get in touch with us to discuss your bespoke requirements.
Can I have lashes on my big day?
Flame Beauty offers 3 different lash extension options for your big day, ranging from individual extensions that last up to 6 weeks to strip lashes. All of these are charged at an extra premium upon request.
Will you be on hand all day to touch up my makeup?
Flame Beauty prices your wedding package based on us being in attendance right up until you put on your dress. If you have further requirements, please contact us to discuss these in more detail.
Will I need to buy anything for touch ups on the big day?
We will advise the lipstick shade that we have used, and you can then purchase this to touch up throughout the day if required. You may also need some blotting papers or powder to reduce shine throughout the day depending on your skin type.
When should I wash my hair for the wedding day?
Slightly dirty hair is easier to put up, so we usually recommend the day before the wedding, only using shampoo and conditioner and no styling or heated products. However if you would feel more comfortable washing it on the day itself, we will still be able to work with your hair!
How will timings be calculated so that everyone is ready on time?
You will be asked about your schedule at your trial, and we will use our experience to calculate a start time based in what you have advised, with extra time for some photos and a glass or two of bubbly!
Is there a maximum number of people that you can cater for?
Flame Beauty can cater for any bridal party size as we have a team of assistants in hand to come along and help out where required.
