Frequently Asked Questions

DO YOU ONLY DO BRIDAL MAKE UP?

Not at all! I also book appointments for occasion and event makeup of all kinds: weekends and nights out, birthdays, festival looks, formal events, graduations, christening, date nights… the list goes on!
Feel free to contact me for any appointments in your social calendar!

DO I HAVE TO HAVE A TRIAL?

A trial is highly recommended to give us the opportunity to try different looks, text out your makeup and hair for your big day, and find the perfect look for you.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?

A trial will be 1 hour 30 mins for makeup, or 3 hours for makeup and hair.
Makeup on the day will be 1 hour for the Bride, or 1 hour 30 mins for makeup and hair.
The Bridal Party (bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom) will be 45 minutes each for makeup, or 1 hour 15 mins for makeup and hair.

I HAVE A LARGE BRIDAL PARTY, CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE?

I can create a schedule for you based on the size of your bridal party, the location and the time of your wedding, and we can discuss further.
I work with incredible skilled and experienced people in the industry to assist me with larger bridal parties.

I WANT TO GET MARRIED ABROAD, WOULD YOU TRAVEL?

Of course, depending on the schedule and date. Contact me to discuss your requirements and we can explore our options.
I am based in Preston, and I am able to cover across North West England including Preston, Blackpool, Lytham St. Annes Fylde, Lancashire, Liverpool, Cheshire, Manchester, Oldham. I can also cover North Wales.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about location and travel.

IS THERE A DEPOSIT?

Yes, to secure your date you will be required to pay a non-refundable 25% deposit and sign a contract.
The rest of the payment is required up to 1 month before the wedding date.

I HAVE HAD TO CANCEL/RESCHEDULE MY WEDDING. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

I am sorry to hear this. Please contact me to discuss as soon as you can so I can consult my calendar.
As deposits are non-refundable, we may be able to transfer your deposit to a new booking for your new date, schedule permitting.

ARE YOU AN AFFILIATE?

I buy a lot of my kit from LOOKFANTASTIC, and I am lucky to be part of their affiliate programme. Shop on LOOKFANTASTIC via links from my website and instagram, and use code LFTFSJFACES at the checkout to get 20% off selected items!
This also allows me to earn a small commission.

Sophie has been absolutely fantastic from our first meetings up until the big day! Nothing was too much trouble, she wanted to get everything perfect. So happy with everything she did for us! My makeup stayed on the whole day and into the night, didn’t even lose an eyelash! I wouldn’t hesitate to use her again!! Thank you Sophie
