We recently met up at the bridal expo in Phillip Island. Check out her advice on your hair and make up for your wedding day.
Tell us who you are and what you do.
My name is Jessica Kramp and I run bridal hair and make-up business "Brush & Brows". I love helping you look even more beautiful and make you feel amazing on your wedding day.
What is your favourite make up style for everyday? Do you have favourite colours, styles, brand, etc?
For everyday I prefer natural glowing make-up, with fresh dewy skin. Also well groomed eyebrows and big lashes is a must! I use a range of many different brands and I am always trying out new products to find my favourites.
For the bridal make up, can you tell us what is special about your service and product?
By running a mobile service, I can provide high quality professional hair make-up and eyebrow shaping all in the comfort of your own home. Brows are my specialty and are often forgotten about, but when they are shaped to appear full and defined this can really enhance your overall bridal look.
When do you recommend brides to try out the make up and hair style? Garden party? Beach party? Winter/summer option? How do you match with their dresses and other accessories?
I recommend that all brides have a trial, it not only gives you peace of mind that you will look your absolute best but also helps me to plan for the wedding day. I work with the bride and bridesmaids to find the best possible hairstyle and make-up to suit each individuals needs.
How far in advance would a bride look at trying their make up and making their booking?
It's best to have a trial within 3 months of the wedding date, but they can be booked up to 6 months in advance. Brow shaping is a separate service and can begin within 6 months of the wedding date, it's best to have your brows shaped every month in the lead up to your wedding to ensure they are in perfect condition.
We are getting into 2014, what are the trends in bridal make up and hair style?
Modern brides are choosing softer, effortless hairstyles and natural make-up with glowing skin. I aim to give brides a natural look that is long lasting and looks perfect both in photographs and in person.
Any advice for brides when choosing their make up and hair style artists?
If you would like to be as relaxed as possible on your wedding day choose a mobile stylist, who can bring the salon to you!
