What products do you use?
My kit has a whole host of brands in it and I create a bespoke look for you based on your needs and desires. Some of the brands I use are Chantecaille, NARS, Charlotte Tilbury, Laura Mercier, Glossier and many many more.
How long will you need to do my hair and makeup?
This is very dependent on the sort of styles you and your bridal party will be having for the big day, but on average I normally allocate an hour for hair and makeup for bridal party, and 2 hours for the bride.
When do you recommend having a trial?
For a UK wedding I normally recommend having a trial around 8-12 weeks before the big day. For international/destination weddings it makes sense to have the trial a little earlier than that to make sure you are happy with styles and that way we can make travel arrangements to avoid high price rises.
I chose Tracey not only because of her work but because of her friendly, helpful and efficient approach in the pre-wedding phase, she stood out from the crowd for me. I'm very happy with that decision. The service was excellent, she even came back for a last minute second trial when I had a bit of a moment and wanted to try something different. On the day she was great and blended seamlessly with all the the bridal prep. I loved the results, she made me, my mum and my 6 bridesmaids look and feel gorgeous. Thanks Tracey!
Tracey was absolutely fantastic. Right from the start she was incredibly helpful sorting the arrangements for the trial and planning the makeup for the wedding morning. She really took the time to understand what look I was going for and offered great advice and ideas during the trial. Tracey put everyone at ease and worked around all the hectic schedule of the wedding morning. I was so pleased with my look and the bridesmaids looked beautiful. A great makeup artist I would thoroughly recommend.
I felt amazing on my wedding day! I loved my look and had many compliments that it was very natural, dewy radiant and classic old Hollywood. Before the trial I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted but Tracey was an absolute pro, she knew what would suit me and helped me choose the perfect hair style and makeup - I felt completely confident it would all be wonderful on the day and it was. When asked to do my sister’s hair and makeup at the last minute, Tracey was more than happy to accommodate her and my sister was so pleased with her look too. I couldn’t have been happier and have no hesitation in recommending Tracey.
