Kate Weston: Let’s talk how important is styling for a bride to be.
Sara Aziz: It’s very important. Basically to get someone combine that style and a style that would actually suit them because a lot of people they do the same thing, the same hair, make-up that they use too and not actually try something that would actually make them look better.
Kate Weston: So one of the things to avoid then is to end up looking like someone else because I guess that takes the groom by surprise when you float down the isle and you don’t look like yeah.
Sara Aziz: Yes, so you need to have a balance, you need to keep something that you know that real person, also something that would make them look amazing.
Kate Weston: And when you’re styling some do you meet them before the big day? So you can work on different things?
Sara Aziz: Definitely. We have a trial. We discuss the hair, make-up, what they’re wearing and so on. So it is very important that we do that have the trial.
Kate Weston: And can you add some things like— false eye lashes and hair pieces, is that okay?
Sara Aziz: Yes, definitely we do it all the time for some hair pieces, false eye lashes. We add it for someone who has a short hair and yeah, we do it all the time.
Kate Weston: Well let’s get straight on because you both three models in with you today about what slightly different coloring I believe so shall we meet Emma first, these are red tags.
Sara Aziz: Yes. This is Emma, what I’ve done with her at—she has a slight tan and she wanted something natural but at the same time and enhance her eyes, she has quite big eyes and so I use brown eye shadow and slightly dark palette color but it’s gloss because she didn’t want too much look and bronzing powder and lots of mascaras.
Kate Weston: It’s absolutely fabulous. Shall we move on model number two?
Sara Aziz: Sure.
Kate Weston: Who is I believed Annie?
Sara Aziz: Yes.
Kate Weston: And where did these models come from by the way?
Sara Aziz: They’re actually from FaceMaker.co.uk. We provide make-up artist, hairstylist so yeah they’re all through Face Maker.
Kate Weston: And Annie looks very different tell us about Annie’s make-up pastel.
Sara Aziz: She wants to be very natural but she has quite youthful about her and what I’ve done is use metallic because it’s the most decisive and she’s getting married in two weeks time and I thought, I just want to give a little bit of glamour but quite natural so she has silver and gray tones, mascara and lip gloss.
Kate Weston: Let’s meet our last model.
Sara Aziz: This is Ana.
Kate Weston: Ana yes.
Sara Aziz: And I have gone for the last a little bigger hair, she has a very long hair, shoulder length but I have use hair piece.
Kate Weston: I see.
Sara Aziz: And I have—so its big hair and false individual eye lashes. She has eye liner so its natural, it’s not too much but at the same time you see the impact.
Kate Weston: Its quite Audrey Hepburn I believe.
Sara Aziz: Yes.
Kate Weston: So is the hairpiece on the back or is that tuck inside her normal hair?
Sara Aziz: Yes it’s inside her normal hair and then the hair has been wrapped around and worked on.
Kate Weston: And individual eye lashes, I have discovered.
Sara Aziz: It’s so easy actually. Curl your eyelashes, put mascara on and then stick them on. It’s as simple as that.
Kate Weston: And they stay, they did because I would think they just drop out putting one at a time.
Sara Aziz: They don’t drop out, the glue is quite sticky and it’s very easy, it’s better for a person if you want to do it yourself to use individual eyelashes than strip because it can be really tricky.
Kate Weston: Do you have any advice for brides? As you’re going to say on their wedding night because I know—when I tried to take my hair down it, you’re look like a birds nest. Is it a good idea to keep it up all the way through the wedding night and worry about it the following morning or—
Sara Aziz: You can keep it up if it’s not hurting you and you’re comfortable with it. Otherwise just brush it through and use a bit of serum and it should go down and not be like a birds nest.
Kate Weston: Not very glamorous is it? Well Sara thank you so much for coming here today and giving us those top tips, many thanks to all of our models that have come in as well.
