Bridal Hair and Makeup in Melbourne & Bright, North East Victoria

(Please don’t hesitate to contact us if your questions aren’t answered here.)

Will the makeup last all day?

Yes, your makeup will last, however there are a few tips help our good work along:

  • Invest in a quality powder.
    If you tend to become a little shiny throughout the day (especially in summer), having a powder with you for touch ups will have you looking brand new within seconds. We recommend Motives Cosmetics HD translucent powder – it’s lightweight and wont cake on your skin.
  • Lipstick and lip-gloss. You will need to reapply.
    Long lasting lipsticks can be dry and aging and not the most comfortable to wear, so it’s better to go for a more hydrating texture.  Bridal packages include a touch up lipstick for the bride on the big day so this is one less thing you need to worry about.

What products do you use?

At FGM we are not loyal to one particular brand. We prefer to use a range of different products form a variety of brands, made up of all our favourite goodies. The brands that feature the most are:

Nars – Mac Cosmetics – Makeup for Ever – Laura Mercier – Bobby Brown – Stilla Gorgeous Cosmetics – Motives Cosmetics – and Kryolan

If you have a favourite be sure to let us know.

Does the makeup have to be heavy for the photos?

No, it doesn’t have to be heavy but it does have to be applied properly using the right products for you. A professional makeup artist knows how to bring out your features, even out skin tone and ensure that you look the very best you can be.

Is there a limit to how many people I can have?

There is no limit! We can cater for just one person to as many as you want. My record wedding party to date was 10 people and we all survived.

Do we charge less for mother of the bride?

No. Regardless of age, we take the same amount of care with everyone.

Is a trial absolutely necessary?

No. A trial is for you to see your artists work prior to the wedding and try any looks you may have in mind. If you are confident and happy to book your wedding straight in that is fine by us.  A trial is really for peace of mind and can reduce the time completing your makeup on the wedding day.

Can I change my booking time?

This is dependent on your artists schedule and may not always be possible to do so at a later stage. Make sure you talk to your photographer before you book in your makeup and hair to be sure you have the timing correct.

Do we do hair and makeup for debs / engagement parties / hens nights?

Yes! We do hair and makeup for any occasion you can think of!
