For the most memorable day of your life, it is a fair assumption that you will not want to be worrying about how to do your make up, find you have forgotten to bring your favourite lipstick with you, wish you had camouflaged your tattoos, hidden that birth mark or non infectious skin condition, for those once in a lifetime wedding pictures…. Outsidethebox healthy Mineral Makeup can take that stress away.

Together, we will agree and perfect your chosen “look” at the Trial. We will also agree the skin match for your camouflage, if required. This will be recreated on your special day, to ensure a relaxed, confident you as you are safe in the knowledge that your make up will last through the hugs and tears of joy as well as stand up to the glare of the photographer’s lens. Outsidethebox Makeup will help you to look your most beautiful with skilfully applied make up, either traditional application or airbrush base, to allow your radiance and best features to shine throughout the day and continue from dusk till dawn.
As your chosen make up artist for your special day by:
Achieving a flawless looking skin for you with decorative and camouflage make up techniques.
Ensuring the techniques and colours I use in your make up compliment the unique styling of your wedding, from your dress and your flowers to reflect your personality.
Giving you the longest possible wear time, whilst achieving the perfect colour match for your complexion, eyes and lips.

The Trial
A trial takes place at the comfort of your own home, along with your bridal party booking too. Trial(s) are normally booked 4-6 weeks before your wedding day. It is essential for us both to ensure the look and timing is perfect for the day of your wedding. A trial can last normally 60 mins or until you are happy. It’s important to have a trial to check for any sensitivity to products, to identify your skin type and colour matching. However, it’s just as important in talking through the styling of your wedding colour theme, seeing pictures of your dress, accessories and any pictures of make-up that you like from magazines, browsing the web and even Pinterest, is all very useful. This will enable me to create and develop with you your own signature bridal look.

The Wedding Day
On the wedding day, Outsidethebox will arrive in plenty of time and make up will usually take 1 hour. The make up, either our very own Outsidethebox mineral makeup or airbrush, the choice is yours, is best applied at the venue where you are getting ready. It is applied after your hair as the final stage before dressing to make sure the make up looks fresh for the rest of the day. In our bride package you will receive a lipstick/or gloss to touch up throughout the day which is your personal touch of colour to remember.
