FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WILL MY MAKE-UP LAST ALL DAY?
We recommend you purchase a pressed powder which helps to set foundation and stop excessive shine in your photos. Airbrush foundation is slightly more durable but as with any make up avoiding touching or rubbing your face is a must.
Your artist will use the appropriate primer to suit your skin type which will help your foundation sit perfectly and last longer.

HOW DO I GO ABOUT CHOOSING A SUITABLE HAIRSTYLE FOR MYSELF OR BRIDAL PARTY?
Please be mindful of the length and thickness of your hair as this will effect the possibilities of your chosen style. Sometimes hair pieces, extensions or fillers will be required which can be purchased through Vixon. An extra cost is involved as it takes more time and skill to work them into the hairstyle.
Extensions can be a huge advantage especially if you are wanting your curls to last all day.
Your artist will advise you of any necessary extras you may need on the day and the hairpieces can be coloured to blend perfectly.
If you are providing your own hair accessories please remember to bring them to your trial.
Google images under red carpet looks can be useful please use a visual reference to bring to your trial so the artist has a better idea of your dream look. If you are unsure of what will suit you our experienced artists are here to help guide you.
HOW DO I GO ABOUT CHOOSING A SUITABLE MAKE-UP LOOK FOR MY WEDDING OR SPECIAL OCCASION?
Visual reference again is helpful collate some pictures of looks you love . Decide what sort of foundation coverage you like, sheer medium or full. If you would like a matt or luminous look. Note powdering over your foundation will make it last and is better for photos. If you prefer a dewy look we can powder and then use a hydrating or setting spray to remove the powdered look. Do you want false lashes applied? Or would you prefer our lash specialist to give you a semi permanent set to last you through your honeymoon.
