Makeup trials ensure that your vision becomes an absolute reality, giving you confidence and peace of mind on your D-Day!  

Here are the top tips compiled by our team of 8 experts in Makeup and Hair at Vurve Salon, of course, verified with the industry standards, just for you!

Why do Makeup Trials Matter?

Imagine this: you've found the perfect wedding dress, the one that fits like a dream and makes you feel incredible. But you wouldn't just wear it on the big day without trying it on first, right? The same goes for your hair and makeup!
It's your chance to play around with styles, see what makes you shine, and get to know the talented people behind the magic: your hairstylist and makeup artist, your makeup squad.
This trial is like a first date – a chance for everyone to feel each other out. You can chat about your vision, show inspirational pics, and see if their vibe meshes with yours. After all, you'll be spending a good chunk of your wedding morning with them, so feeling comfortable and confident is key!

Pre- Trial Preparations

When should you book the trial?

Timing is everything! We recommend booking your trial session 2-3 months before your wedding. This gives you enough time to properly test out different looks and incorporate any changes if necessary. 

Bridal Hair Trial: What to Expect?

This is an opportunity to explore an array of hairstyles, from romantic updos to loose curls, braids, and a lot more. Begin with a consultation. Share inspirational photos, communicate your preferences, and discuss your wedding theme, venue atmosphere, and dress style. The hairstylist will listen to your preferences and offer suggestions based on your hair type, dress, and facial features. Pick a hairstyle that feels comfy for you to rock all day or night with confidence!

Makeup Trial: What to Expect?

Once you've had a skin assessment, our makeup artist will suggest which products and styles will make your natural features pop! So, when it comes to makeup for brides, you've got options! You can go for airbrush makeup or HD makeup. Also, there's a whole range of finishes to play with too, like glowy, dewy, or matte. Each one's perfect for different events like your wedding, reception, or engagement – so pick accordingly! Discuss any skin concerns or allergies to products that you may have. It is always a good idea to bring along a photo reference for your trial session preferably someone with a similar skin tone as yours. 

Remember, your wedding day's gonna be full of emotions – tears, laughter, and lots of dancing! So, your makeup needs to be able to keep up. Your trials are the perfect time to test out the products' longevity and see how they hold up against all the feels.
