Getting To Know The Beauty Case

It is no secret that we love the girls from The Beauty Case. They have worked with us on several shoots recently, including the two styled vendor shoots for The Vintage and Handmade Wedding Fair and some fantastic shoots featured in Issue 2 of our magazine (out in mid-September nationally). There is never a dull moment when these two chicks are part of your day, that’s for sure…. and their work is fabulous! Khesanh & Elisse are such a professional team, but a tonne of fun…..

We are excited to have them showcase their awesome work at the fair next weekend, and we recently asked them a few questions about their fabulous biz….

Can you tell us a bit about The Beauty Case?

We are a Hair and Makeup team that specializes in Vintage Theme weddings. Whether you’re going for 1920’s glam or boho beach, we will transform you into your most beautiful self! We use only the best products to ensure you have a flawless and long-lasting look.

Can you describe your style for us?

We love timeless, classic beauty. We specialize in Vintage Themed affairs and cater to any bride and wedding theme.

Where are you based, and what areas do you service?

We are based in Brisbane and cover from Gympie to Byron Bay.

What advice do you have for brides choosing their wedding hair and makeup?

Research, research, research- find as many pictures as you can of the style you want. Your idea of curls and mine might be completely different, and this is where things can go wrong. Always be open and honest with your wedding day stylists- we won’t be grumpy if you don’t like something. We would rather change it and make you the happiest Bride ever!

How early should brides book their hair and makeup?

As soon as they decide on a date and time! We have brides who book a year and a half in advance.

How long should brides allow for hair and makeup on the day?

1.5 hours per person. ( 45 minutes for each stylist)

Do you have a particular hairstyle or makeup style that you love for weddings?

Khesanh loves fresh and dewy skin with glossy lips and a golden Smokey eye!!

Elisse can’t go past a freshly brushed out pin curl set!!

What do you love most about doing hair and makeup?

We love creating a look for someone on the most important day of their life. The way we make them feel when they see themselves in the mirror, and the first words out of their mouth are “Oh wow I love it”!! That makes us feel special.

What do you think are the upcoming trends for 2013/2014 weddings?

Because vintage-themed weddings don’t rely on trends (except when The Great Gatsby was released), brides don’t have to worry about being on trend with their wedding. Just make sure it represents who you are as an individual and as a couple.

What can couples expect when they visit your stand in August?

Apart from 2 super cool chicks!! You can see all of our beautiful work from our past weddings and amazing styled shoots. And lots of chocolate and sweets! We will be doing a few demos on the day.

Are you running any specials on the day?

We will offer all of our brides who book a free trial with us.
