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 Bright Makeup we are not loyal to one particular beauty brand. We prefer to use a range of quality makeup products from a variety of well known cosmetic brands.  Think of it more as a collection of all our favourites, an ever changing kit influenced by the constant supply of new makeup on the market.  We are sure to stay in touch with all the latest and greatest beauty products, but don’t depart easily with some of the stock standard favourties of many makeup artists. Products such as Nars’ ‘Orgasm’ or Mac’s diverse collection of lipsticks and its very hard to go past the flawless finish of Laura Mercier’s ‘Silk Creme Foundation’

Some of our most popular cosmetic brands include:

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!

What areas do you service?

Bright Makeup is a mobile Hair & Makeup service. I do have a studio in Porepunkah, but find most brides want to be able to stay in the comfort of their own accommodation, with their family and friends on the day of their wedding or special occasion.  For this reason I’m happy to travel to you.  Areas serviced include all of North East Victoria, including Bright, Porepunkah, Wandiligong, Harrietville, Myrtleford, Mount Beauty and ski resorts, Falls Creek, Mt Hotham and Dinner Plain.  Some travel costs may apply depending on the distance but please feel free to enquire and specific costs can be provided.
