Colour Analysis FAQ

Taking your hair and eye colour as well as your skin tone into account, we find out which colours will best complement your colouring.

A Colour Analysis session takes approximately 2 hours for both women and men.

Wear whatever you are comfortable in. I’ll pop a white cape over what you have on during the Consulation.

Absolutely! I never leave the house without at least some mascara and a lipgloss.  The Consultation itself will be done without your make-up on.  I can provide Simple products to remove whatever you have on, but should you wish to bring your own products, feel free!

No problem at all. I’ll give you a guide to take away should you have a special occasion where you would like something to refer back to.

Just yourself, a smile and your make-up bag! If you’re celebrating, feel free to bring some fizz!

Style Consultation FAQ

Taking into account your personality, lifestyle, body shape and proportions, we work together to find out what will make you look and feel good.

Approx 2 hours. I review and reassess all my services regularly, so please keep and eye on the site for updates and if you have any questions you can always contact me.

£155, however I review and reassess all my prices regularly, so please keep and eye on the site for updates and if you have any questions you can always contact me.

I encourage clients to bring items from their wardrobes which they are finding ‘challenging’.

Gift Voucher FAQ

6 months – please see the end date on your voucher.

I’m afraid not, you are welcome to change the service/products for which they were initially intended and the recipient can be changed with written approval from the initial recipient.   NB Due to hygiene rules and restrictions, I am unable to exchange/refund cosmetic products unless they are faulty.

Wardrobe Review FAQ

Generally, in the comfort of your own home.

Personal Shopping FAQ

We’ll have a chat before we go to work out where is best for your requirements and budget, etc.

No. I am completely independent which ensures you get the best for you!

Absolutely not!  It’s entirely up to you if and what you buy.

As with most things in life, I’m afraid there are no guarantees!

No problem.  We will agree the parameters on an individual basis.

Whilst it helps tremendously for us to be armed with this information, it’s by no means a prerequisite.

Make-Up FAQ

CMB has a fantastic range of products which co-oridinate beautifully with the tonal colour analysis system we use.  Where an appropriate CMB product isn’t available, I tend to work with MAC and Illamasqua products.

For CMB products, please click here to see information about the ingredients.

In the highly unlikely situation that you find an adverse reaction to the product, of course I will reimburse the cost of the product on its return.  If this should happen, I would immediately feed this back to the manufacturer via our Head Office, so if you have any photos for me to include, that would be very much appreciated.

If you change your mind over a product, I’m afraid that due to hygiene reasons, I am unable to provide refunds or exchanges.

Full Image Makeover FAQ

No, I actually recommend that the Makeover is split into 2 sessions ie Colour Analysis and Make-up Lesson (approx 2.5 hours), then the Style Consultation (approx 2 hours). There’s such a lot of information to take in that clients like the chance to go home and familiarise themselves with the new palettes and techniques.

Memberships FAQ

The timetable of services would be agreed in principle at the start of the engagement. These can be reviewed on a regular basis to take account of conflicting requirements.  Any rescheduling within 48 hours of an appointment will be looked at on an individual basis, but hopefully, we’d be able to rearrange!

An initial setup payment would be agreed at the outset with monthly payments made thereafter.

Events FAQ

Pricing is assessed on an individual event basis.  As they can take a considerable amount of planning, etc there is generally a minimal cost involved.

Refunds can be provided if the cancellation is given in writing no less than 48 hours in advance.  You are welcome, however, to pass the ticket on to someone else, just let me know their contact details.

Of course. Let’s have a chat through what you have in mind.
