I love working with brides and the bridal party on the wedding morning, it’s one of the most important days in your life, and who doesn’t want to look and feel amazing. It’s always an honour to be part of these special hours before you walk up the aisle.
From the moment you arrive to me for your wedding trial I work with you to create the look you want for your special day – the trial is so important to me, it’s our chance to get to know each other and for you to experiment with different makeup looks. I always allow at least 1 1/2 hours for the wedding trial. Timing is key to a stress-free morning so I always work with you, your hairdresser, and the photographer to plan a schedule that will ensure the morning runs smoothly and on time.
My style of makeup is radiant and natural, the most beautiful version of yourself …the finish is flawless, but then again what else would you expect on your wedding day? I stay with you until you’re ready to leave – leaving time for final touchups and lipstick !
It’s important to me to have a calming effect and many brides (and other wedding party members) have noted this to me. I try to be unobtrusive and yet everpresent and spend the time ensuring you look amazing and feel confident on your very special day.
“I recently travelled from Dublin to have my bridal make up trial with Aileen in Athlone and I have to say I was delighted I made the trip! Aileen was so welcoming and friendly from the outset and my bridesmaids and I felt at ease from the start. Aileen is a true professional who really listened to what style I wanted and I was so happy with the finished dewy look Aileen achieved, using only the best products including Mac, YSL, Charlotte Tilbury, Tom Ford and Illuminare. I would not hesitate to recommend Aileen for a bridal trial and I can’t wait to have my make up done again by Aileen on the big day! Thanks again Aileen x”
