Myself and one of my bridesmaids have sensitive skin - what is the best way to approach make up?

Have a trial and patch test the make-up. We have sensitive skin ourselves so tend to use products which tend not to irritate.

Would you advise a trial for my bridesmaids and Mum?

From our experience a trial and consultation prior to the big day means that everyone knows what to expect and helps everything to run super smooth on your wedding day. However, we appreciate that this isn't always possible with people living in all corners of the planet. If its possible then yes but if not, then we can discuss their requirements in more detail at your trial.
