When is the best time to have a trial?
I normally recommend 6 – 8 weeks before the wedding, as by that time you have more of an idea as to what look/style you would like to go for – although you can book it at anytime its entirely upto you. Most people will tie in their trial with a special event to make the most of it.
Do I need to bring anything?
If you have any ideas of what you would like then it may be useful to provide some pictures, either from the internet or magazines. For your trial it is best not to wear any makeup, just have fresh cleansed skin.
How long does makeup take?
Makeup application times vary based on the type of look you are wanting, I allow 45 minutes for a standard application or up to an hour for a more dramatic look.
Will my makeup last all day?
Yes, I pride myself on using premium products that are long lasting – however you may need to touch up lipstick throughout the day, which you can buy off me.
How far in advance do I need to book for a wedding?
I do get booked up quickly, especially during the summer months – I would recommend you book early to get the date of your choice to avoid disappointment. I take bookings as far as 18 months in advance.
Do you do hair too?
No sorry, but I can recommend some very good mobile hair dressers that I have worked with, if you are struggling to find someone.
Do I come to you or do you come to me?
I do trials at my place based in Richmond area – then on your wedding day I travel to your location wherever it may be (additional cost for outside Christchurch). Please enquire.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes – a $100 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your date, which will come off the total price. Full payment is due before the wedding date or cash on the day of your event.
WOW just WOW!!! Chrystal you are one very talented lady! Me and my girls looked incredible on my wedding day! You did the most amazing job and our make up stayed perfect all day! Thank you again xxx.
Chrystal did my make up for my wedding in Queenstown in November she did myself my bridesmaids and my mums, we all looked incredible! She’s so talented and such a kind and lovely person! Wouldn’t trust anyone else but Chrystal for any up coming events. ❤
Chrystal did my make up for my wedding, she’s incredibly talented, a perfectionist and has an eye for detail. One thing you want to feel on your wedding day is like the most beautiful girl in the world and that is exactly how I felt once Chrystal had worked her magic! Thank you so much Chrystal, you’re an absolute treasure!
I have shot several weddings with Chrystal and she is a very professional artist in every aspect of what she does, the end results are amazing as she listens to what her clients want. Her photos speak for themselves and would definitely highly recommend her as a make up artist for any occasion.

Having quite a contemporary wedding dress, I wanted a very clean fresh look for the makeup on my wedding day. Chrystal did such an incredible job, making me feel so confident, flawless but also natural. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to help on the day. She is easy going, relaxed and made me and my 5 bridesmaids feel beautiful. I highly recommend her makeup artistry. Thanks Chrystal
I don’t generally wear makeup so I was quite worried about picking a makeup artist for my wedding day. I found Chrystal and she got back to my enquiry very quickly, her pricing was really good and after the trial I knew she was the one! She was very professional and showed up right on 8am on my wedding day (even though she was ill the night before). I didn’t want something too heavy and she made me look stunning. It was rainy on my big day and and my makeup still looked amazing after being exposed to the elements. I received so many compliments about how beautiful I looked and how my features had been highlighted so perfectly. I can’t wait to use Chrystal again for a special occasion. She is beyond amazing at what she does!!! Thank you so much xx.
Chrystal did my Make-up for my winter school formal, and I absolutely loved it! She did an amazing job I love and admire the work that she does. I’ve been to a few people/places, but Chrystal has got to be the best by far! Would highly recommend.
Chrystal your makeup is ALWAYS stunning! Love shooting a wedding that you’ve worked your magic on as I know the brides makeup will look fab all day long…thank you!
