Wedding Preparation

In order to achieve your perfect look on your wedding day, it is highly recommended that you book a consultation & run-through for make-up. It is best to reserve an appointment 2-3 months prior to your wedding day. Trials are provided at the Studio location.  Cost of a Trial is $75.
On the day of your trial, bring in colour inspiration from your flowers and wedding theme, along with pictures of your makeup vision to create the perfect bridal makeup look.
Our goal is for you to be totally satisfied with your look. If you would like to modify your makeup look, a retrial makeup application is an option. Please contact the studio location within a 7 day time frame to reschedule a retrial date.  A retrial does not cost you extra.  Airbrush makeup and traditional makeup applications are offered.  If you find one doesn’t suit you then it is recommended you try the second option example, airbrush verses traditional.  Most times a combination of airbrush and traditional makeup is applied.
When booking large makeup and hairstyling services through Beauty by Tracey, you will have a freelance hairstylist and a freelance makeup artist providing each service separately. This ensures full focus on each specialized service and avoids conflicts with time restraints.

Smaller wedding parties will be provided with one person doing makeup and hair.  Example 2-3 people requiring both hair and makeup.  Please call or email if you have more questions in regards to party sizes and services.

A $75 non-refundable deposit is required  to hold an event date.  The deposit will be deducted off the total amount on the day of your wedding.   A deposit does not cover the cost of a trial.
On-Location or Studio Location serving Ottawa and surrounding areas. A travel fee may apply to locations far outside city limits. For longer distance travel, a minimum of 6 or more makeup applications is required.  Parking fees may also apply.

Wedding Timeline

Your wedding day is one of the most important moments in your life; it makes sense that you want to look the part. Whether that means keeping up with your tried and true beauty regime or beginning a new one, now is the time to start preparing.

Review the following list – some of the items may already be part of your regular beauty regime. Determine which additional steps you may wish to take to ensure complete bridal beauty.

  • Drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin and keep you healthy.
  • Consult with an aesthetician and begin a skincare program that includes regular facials.
  • Continue with your regular hair stylist for cut and color upkeep.
  • Consider having your teeth professionally whitened or try over-the-counter products.
  • Pamper yourself with a massage now and then.
  • Have your eyebrows designed by a professional and maintain the design with regular waxing.
  • Have regular manicures and pedicures.

  • Choose a Hair Stylist for wedding day. Check into mobile stylists that will come to your location for the day of your wedding. This will take the stress away of traveling to salon locations.
  • Choose a Professional Makeup Artist to come to you on the day of your wedding. Ask to view their portfolio online.

  • Test-drive a spray tan. Schedule your trial runs before a bridal shower where photos will be taken, so you can be sure you’re comfortable with your shade. Schedule your pre-wedding spray tan session 1 – 2 days before your wedding day.
  • Schedule your hair trial run.
  • Schedule your makeup trial run. This is always nice to schedule in for the day of your engagment photo shoot.
  • Schedule final beauty/grooming appointments for the week of wedding:
    haircut and/or color, manicure/pedicure, massage, tanning, waxing.

  • Wax any areas of the body that need to be waxed… remember nicely shaped brows frame the shape of your face.
  • Attend final grooming/beauty appointments

  • Give vendor tips and payments to planner or member of your wedding party for distribution.
  • Get beautiful.
  • Get dressed.
  • Marry the man you love and have a wonderful, beautiful day!

  • Tattoo removal – You will need 3 – 12 sessions of laser to remove the tattoo, depending on the size. Remember to do your research on a well known Dermatologist for tattoo removal.
  • Temporary tattoo coverage – Airbrush makeup will cover up your tattoo for the day.
