Questions & Answers about Wedding Hair & Makeup

Why is Bellus more affordable than our competitors?
Bellus is owned and operated by Amanda so without addition staffing costs those saving can be passed onto you.

When should I book my pre-wedding trial?
As soon as possible and we will schedule it for between 3 to 8 weeks prior to your wedding day.

What preparation should I do to my skin prior to my wedding day?
The smoother your skin, the better result on your wedding day. So a gentle skin exfoliate should be used to remove any old skin cells and smooth out imperfections. Exfoliates can be used up to 2 times per week, be careful not to over exfoliate as this can dry out your skin and leave skin tender and red. I can recommend skin treatments available for you @ salons.

Waxing, when do I get facial waxing done?
Waxing of the face is best done 2 – 3 days prior to your wedding day because it can be difficult for makeup to adhere to skin which has been freshly waxed. After 2 – 3 days your makeup will stay in place easily.

Why should I choose Airbrushing over traditional makeup?
Unlike traditional makeup, Airbrushing feels completely weightless on your skin. Airbrushing gives a complete flawless coverage and lasts for up to 16 hours.

Why should I choose Traditional makeup over Airbrushing?
If you like a heavy coverage and have large or deep pores, then traditional makeup is for you. However, we can utilize both types of application to ensure you the best coverage.

What brands of makeup do you use?
At bellus I believe in only using the best! I have tried and tested many brands of makup and for this reason I use many ranges including Napoleon, Inuovi, Karajo, Paris berlin, Mac, Inglot and Element Two. Depending on your skin type and desired result will depend on which range (or a mixture of a few) I will use to complete your look.
