Preparation Guidelines

 MAKEUP

On the day of your appointment:

  • Please do not wear makeup!

  • Feel free to wear moisturiser if you'd like - however, I will be doing a full skincare routine for you.

  • Bring reference images of the look you'd like to achieve (to save time please have them ready to go) You can find a collection of inspiration photos on my Pinterest pagehttps://www.pinterest.com.au/elisebysouthmakeup/_saved

  • Bring a photo of how you usually wear your makeup to give me a guide of the amount of makeup you're comfortable wearing.

If the appointment is at your location:

 

  • If the appointment is at your location please arrange a table nearby a powerpoint for me to set up my my lighting equipment, ideally facing a window natural light.

 

Before your appointment:

  • Continue to moisturise twice daily.

  • Regularly exfoliate in the week leading up to the booking to ensure that your makeup doesn't cling to any dry patches on the skin (facial scrubs are NOT recommended).

 

 

Things to avoid:

  • Don't apply fake tan to your face. This can make the makeup look muddy or ashy. I will make sure that your face matches the colour of your body.

  • Do not have any facial waxing within 48hrs prior to your appointment. This can make it very difficult for makeup to stick to the skin and may look patchy, (tweezing and threading is fine).

  • Harsh facials are not recommended in the week before your appointment. These include, but are not limited to; microdermabrasion, skin needling, chemical peels, RF, laser etc.

  • If you are wanting false eyelashes please avoid getting a lash lift.

 

 HAIR

On the day of your appointment:

  • Wash your hair the morning or night of your appointment.

  • Make sure your hair is frizz free and completely dry.

  • Please straighten your hair after drying if you have curly or wavy hair.

  • Bring a reference photo of the look you'd like to achieve. You can find inspiration on my Pinterest page: www.pinterest.com.au/elisebysouthmakeup/hairstyling

Before your appointment:

  • Shampoo twice the morning or night before your appointment.

  • Condition on only the middle to the ends of your hair.

  • Dry your hair whilst using a large brush to smooth out any frizz.

  • If you do not feel confident drying your hair, I recommend getting a salon blow dry the afternoon before.

 

 

Things to avoid:

 

Please do not apply any products (eg. hair serums) to the hair as it can weigh it down.
