Your makeup artist and hair stylist has done this quite a few times but this is probably your first time scheduling a bridal trial. Here are some things that you might find helpful to know in advance:
To begin, you should have a clean face with no makeup on and dry hair. Be sure to confirm with your stylist if this is what you should do but in my personal experience this is what most artists request of their clients :)
I personally love to have visuals of the look you are trying to recreate, or your inspiration pictures, so be sure to have those ready. If you always do the same makeup look and you don't want to stray too far from that look, it would be wise to show your artist a picture of your every day makeup. This way your makeup artist knows what you are comfortable with.
Another thing to remember is that you will find it beneficial if you bring your accesories with you. Jewelry, veils, and head pieces will complete the look after your stylist is done. You can feel more complete with your style if you have your accesories, and it will help you decide on the final touches of hair and makeup.
Pictures. Take lots of pictures, and see how everything photographs :) Natural light is best and it is always nice to have those pictures as referance before the wedding day.
Alot of brides will ask me when they should schedule their trial. I always feel that 15-30 days before the wedding is the ideal time. You will know exactly what look you are going for 2-4 weeks before the wedding. If you decide to do it 3-6 months in advance it is very likely that you might change your mind about certain things.
Last but not least, have fun and don't be shy to speak your mind. Feel free to try a few lip colors and truly express your opinion about your hair and makeup. If you do this, you and your stylist will be on the same page about your look.
