I was just wondering how far in advance everyone had their makeup trials, or when they plan on having their trial ? I'm getting married at the end of June. My makeup artist will be away from Feb to May, so I can either go for the trial sometime in January or else wait until May. I was thinking of waiting until May, but just wondered what the norm was. Thanks :wv

I would get trial done before beautician goes away. Got make up done for a party recently with the salon that I was hoping to use for my wedding, wasnt at all happy with make up, serivce or price. Will not be using that salon now even though I heard lots of good things about them before hand. You will need to know more then a month before the wedding if you need a new beautician.

I've tried 2 salons already and didn't like they way either of them made me up so have a third trial this Saturday in another salon. O:| If I'm not happy with this one I'm just going to do my own! :o0 So ... in answer to your op I would say definitely start looking now...just in case!!!

Have you got Ciara too? I have to get my trial before she goes away cos she's only coming back 3 days before my wedding. I'm sure it'll be ok though.

One of my BM is paying for my make up for the wedding as a friend of hers is a make up artist. I have seen her work before and really like it but she can't seem to get intouch with her and says she has someone else in mind but I have never seen her work so I am thinking of geting her to book the trial in Feb in case I dont like her, as a few of you seem to have had to shop around.

I was going to wait, as she will be back about 6/7wks before the wedding, but I have heard great things about her so I wasn't too worried about hanging on til she came back. Not sure what to do now as some wollies have pointed out it might be better to get it done now.

I can let you know how mine goes if you want!
