The Gecko Help Center
A Gecko Client Is A Happy Client
Can I bring someone with me to my trial?
Yes of course, we are quite tight on space but can squeeze in one or two extra people. We do have stairs to our studio room, if you require Gecko Bridal to come to you due to access restrictions - please just ask!
How is Gecko Bridal - Gecko Face Painting different from other makeup artists / face painters?
We place really high expectations on ourselves and are more than happy to go the extra mile, whether that's lacing you in your dress, fixing button holes or researching a particular face paint theme for your child. We aim to give each client the best experience with us that we possibly can. We are fully insured and all our necessary equipment is PAT tested.
Which payment methods does Gecko Bridal - Gecko Face Painting accept?
We accept cash payments, card payments (where the wifi signal is strong enough) and payment via BACS. All clients receive an invoice via our accounting software and all payments are logged.
Is there an age limit for your services?
With regards to face painting, we are not insured to paint children under 3 years old, however you can sign a disclaimer and we will use our discretion.
For makeup clients, we will not apply a "full face" of makeup to children under 10 years old but are happy to add blush, mascara and a bit of twinkle for younger members of the Bridal party.
There is no upper limit! Our most senior client so far has been 99 years old.
What products do you use?
For our makeup application we use a variety of high end products from companies such as Estee Lauder, Urban Decay, MAC and Benefit.
For hair styling we prefer L'Oreal but keep various items in our kit.
For face painting we use predominantly Grimas products with some Mehron and Diamond FX paints. All paints are professional quaility and all our glitters are biodegradable.
Will my hair and makeup last all day?
Absolutely, we attended a bridal party on the hottest day of the year and they remained flawless all day, we use only the best products to ensure your look stays put. During your trial, we can discuss your skin type and skin care in order to help you get your skin in the best possible condition prior to your wedding. The better your skin is, the better the makeup will be!
