Trial Makeup and Hairstyling
A makeup trial is highly recommended. Your makeup trial is a key appointment leading up to the wedding. In this session, we will discuss everything about your desired look for your wedding day including the design of your dress and the colors and style of the bridal party. We will also discuss whether you would prefer traditional makeup or airbrush application and the ‘look’ you are after. We will go through the images and photos you have collected as well. I will also be able to give professional skin care tips so you can prepare and treat your skin in advance.
With this information, we then set about creating your bridal look in a relaxed environment. The trial is held during the day and can last up to 2-3 hours.
WHEN DO I NEED TO HAVE MY TRIAL DONE?
I usually recommend we should do the trial 3 – 6 months prior to your wedding
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR THE WEDDING MAKEUP TRIAL?
- Please don’t wear any makeup.
- Wear white tube/button down polo/dress preferably a similar tone to your wedding gown.
- Please don’t apply any sunblock.
- Don’t put conditioner on your hair. We suggest that you shampoo twice on that day specially for oily scalp.
- Please bring the following:
- Sample photos of makeup/hairstyle looks that you like.
- Photos of your gown, bridesmaids’ dresses, flower colors.
Veil or any headpiece, if you have.

HOW LONG WILL THE WEDDING PREPARATION TAKE?
We will work backwards from when you need to be ready, so that hair and makeup is finished ideally at least forty five minutes to one hour before you need to leave allowing sufficient time to get into your gown, have some photos taken, and for you to get relaxed and have a final ‘me time’ so it is not all rushed.
I will work with an assistant on the day to save time as they help with all the preparation work.
CAN YOU DO ANY KIND OF LOOK?
Absolutely! I can create whatever suits your personal style from a very natural look to a more glam look. I would love to hear about your ideas so the more examples and information you can provide, the better it will be.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Makeup and hair trials are held in my studio at Sonata Private Residences in Ortigas City (near Edsa Shangri-La, Philippines).
WHAT IS AIRBRUSH MAKEUP?
Airbrushing refers to the way makeup is applied using an airbrush gun which sprays in fine mists which is ideal to achieve flawless coverage with minimal products. Makeup that is airbrushed translates really well in HD cameras while still maintaining a natural finish in person. It is also extremely long-wearing and water-resistant, lasting through tears.
WHICH PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
I am using a selection of the best professional and luxurious products from all over the world. As I am not working for any particular brand, my product selection is completely unbiased. The products I use are not only based on experience and quality, but I also choose products that best suit your skin type and tone. I handpick the best products of each range and am constantly updating my selection.

Local Brands: Selected products from Sunnies Face, Moone beauty, Happy Skin, Vice , Ever Bilena, Careline, Blk Cosmetics
I can also create looks using products that are cruelty-free and not tested on animals. Just let me know your preference upon booking.
IS SKIN CARE IMPORTANT?
Yes, it is. Your makeup will only look as good as the canvas (your skin) it is placed on. If you are not currently using a skin care regimen, you should start this process 6 to 8 months before your wedding day. Ennah Trinidad Makeup Artistry can advise of a skincare regime that is appropriate for your skin type and that address your skin concerns. The basic steps that are needed for any skin type is as follows: Cleanse, tone, exfoliate, protect, moisturize.
I WANT MY COMPLEXION TO BE RADIANT FOR MY SPECIAL DAY, SHOULD I GET A FACIAL A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE MY WEDDING?
No, you should not get a facial, peel or microdermabrasion within 3 weeks of your event. You want your skin to have time to recover if there is some form of irritation.
I HAVE NEVER HAD MY EYEBROWS SHAPED, IS IT REALLY IMPORTANT?
Yes, having your eyebrows shaped will make a huge difference in your appearance. It will open up your eyes, frame your face, give you and instant lift and help you look pull together. There are a number of options available for shaping: Tweezing, threading, and waxing. I would suggest going to an experienced professional.
DO YOU PROVIDE YOUR SERVICES IN OTHER CITIES OR COUNTRIES?
Yes, but ‘out of town/out of country’ fee applies. Bride will shoulder airfare, terminal fee, overweight charges (if necessary), food (either crew meal or meal allowance), and lodging (if necessary).
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
It’s important to me to not just offer standard packages, but an individual service for every bride I work with as everyone is different and unique. Please enquire for details providing me with your wedding date, ceremony and reception locations, and further details on your wedding, style, and story.
ABSOLUTELY. It’s common for Brides to book without makeup trial.
You can check our Instagram, Facebook, and Webpage to see if my style of make up is similar to what you’re looking for.
Here are the few things we need to do if you don’t have time for a trial:
