Lets Talk… Silent Appointments

My main focus as a makeup artist, apart from making sure your makeup is exactly as you’d like, is making sure you are totally comfortable. I personally find having my makeup done a really relaxing experience and I know many of my clients do too! However, for many ladies that I meet it is the only opportunity they get to really switch off. That brings us onto the topic of “Silent Appointments”.

What is a Silent Appointment?

You may be wondering, what even is a Silent Appointment? A Silent Appointment is exactly what it says on the tin; a makeup booking with me where, after my initial consultation about what you’re looking for with your makeup, I will be quiet throughout so you can relax fully. Some of my clients love a chit chat, but I recognise that others are quieter and enjoy a bit of peace! I want to make sure you look forward to your booking with me, and for some the idea of getting their makeup done is quite daunting. Trusting someone (who may be a stranger!) to do your makeup can be a scary prospect, and once you add on the idea that we’ll be chatting for the 45 minutes to an hour that I spend with you, it may be take away that excitement. As someone who used to get very anxious meeting new people, I can understand this fully.

So, who is a Silent Appointment suitable for?

To put it simply – anyone! Whether you’ve had a stressful week at work, find the idea of having your makeup done overwhelming or simply just want to chill, a Silent Appointment could be the perfect option for you. Future brides, I’m also looking at you! Your wedding morning can be a very overwhelming day, not only with all of the emotions but also with people asking you lots of questions on the wedding morning. Silent Appointments are a fabulous way to relax and take a minute to yourself before you head down the aisle.

My Top Tip for Silent Appointments

You may be reading this thinking “is that not incredibly awkward?” My top tip for Silent Appointments is to have music or the radio on in the background. Whatever genre you like, I promise I’m not fussy!
