Makeup

From full on Glamour to natural “hardly there” make up – the choice is yours
Our talented makeup artists have experience in all areas of their industry. Apart from their bridal work, they are frequently employed for Fashion Week, Feature Films, Theatre productions, Editorial shoots, All Television stations and Catwalk; their expertise is extensive. Widely used for photo shoots in magazines, including Melbourne Wedding and Bride, Your Local Wedding Guide, Wedding & Bride, and The Complete Melbourne Wedding Guide. They have also worked with many celebrities especially Brownlow medal, Logies, Spring Carnival, Carols by Candlelight, to mention a few.
Make ups will last throughout your wedding day, with the exception of an occasional “touch up” of lipstick and powder. They are designed for colour, black and white, day time, night time photography.
We offer conventional makeup application and Airbrush makeup. Airbrush makeup provides a near flawless coverage by minimizing skin imperfections while giving skin a beautifully natural finished look. That being said, our conventional makeup artists also do flawless work and provide excellent coverage. It depends on each individual and their skin. All the airbrush artists do both.
Please remember that the most expensive artists are not necessarily the best and the cheapest make up artists may not have the experience or expertise needed for a perfect make up. You do not need a heavy “caked on” makeup for photos and you do not need to purchase expensive touch-up makeup kits

Trials

Most brides prefer to have a trial or practice run with hair and make up prior to their wedding day. It is not essential, but to make sure that you will be happy on the wedding day, a trial is advisable.

Trials for bridesmaids are optional but we do offer them a FREE CONSULTATION at the brides’ trial when we go through colours, styles and take notes of their requirements. If a bridesmaid requests a trial, we are happy to oblige!

Our artists will help you make informed decisions on the styles you want. They will LISTEN to your requests and will offer lots of helpful advice and ideas when asked. However, the final decision on the style is yours. They are there to give you the guidance you need without insisting that you have the style they choose for you.

They will write up a schedule of appointment times and costs for each person at your trial.

The person who does your trial will also be doing your hair and / or make up on your wedding day. A deposit paid at your trial, will secure your booking with her for the day.

Mobile

In most cases, Magical Makeovers ARE MOBILE TO YOU FOR YOUR TRIALS AND ON YOUR WEDDING DAY.
Our mobile service is efficient and time effective with NO LOCATION FEES within the Metropolitan Melbourne area as we don’t believe that we should be paid to “drive to work”. However with high petrol costs and tolls there may be a small fee to cover some travel to longer distances.
Some of our artists have a salon or studio at their home, so you may like to visit them to have your trial. The choice is yours.
Most photographers prefer a mobile hair and make up service to your home or hotel, as this eliminates the problem of you arriving home late from a salon. Our team work efficiently together; working side by side keeping to their schedules to ensure that you are not only ready on time but without any stress. The team are very friendly and make your time together very easy and pleasant.
You simply sit back, relax, and enjoy being pampered, without rushing to appointments in another suburb. Mobile is the ONLY way to go on your wedding day!

Hair

Our Hairdressers and stylists cover a wide range of styles for you to choose from; formal elegant updo’s, understated romantic buns, braids and glamourous waves to name a few. They have extensive experience in hairdressing and have become recognised wedding industry specialists in formal styling and bridal work. They are constantly updating their skills with regular training to keep up with the latest trends and techniques.

You can ask them to bring along a portfolio or magazines to your trial, or you can do some research before your trial to have some ideas ready to be discussed and trialled. We highly recommend using our Facebook pages as well as our Gallery on the website to get some ideas. If you have your own hair extensions that you wish to work into your style, our hairdressers have extensive experience in this area. We highly recommend using human hair pieces to allow us full creative license to design your look efficiently.

Your trial can go up to 2 hours for you to try a couple of different styles. We are very patient and do not mind you changing your mind to try a different style if the first one is not what you want. We understand that a formal hairstyle is not something you are used to, so it can take some time to get it just right. We will work WITH you to get the perfect hairstyle for your wedding day.
