Frequently Asked Questions
We aim to tailor our makeover photoshoot packages to clients needs. Because everyone has different needs and requirements from the professional team at Makeover Studio London, we thought it best to compile a list of frequently asked questions.
Of course, if you have a question which isn’t answered here, or you just want to chat to one of the team, you can always call the Makeover Studios London team on 020 7388 5757.
Q) How long does the session last for?
A) Your day at the studio lasts approximatly 4-5 hours. It’s tricky to be exact as we want to tailor every package to the client and some people’s needs may take a little more time to fulfil. Whatever the specific length of time of your package, it will include your professional makeup being applied, hair styled, a photoshoot and the viewing session.
Makeover London Studios is considered one of London’s most fashionable photographic and makeover studios. As a result, we also cater to groups too so if you are coming with a guest(s), time will be extended.
Q) Do I need to bring anything?
A) When you make your booking you will be sent details on what you need to bring. Clothes are not provided at the studio and you will need to bring your own selection.
This gives you more comfort in clothing and results in a more relaxed photoshoot. We also recommend you bring accessories, jewellery and appropriate footwear.
Of course, you can always give us a call to run your ideas through with one of the team.

Q) Do I wear make-up to the studio before my photoshoot?
A) We recommend you not to wear any make-up or keep it very minimal. When you arrive at the studio our makeup artist will be applying professional makeup. A clean face is best to apply makeup as it can help create a flawless finish.
We also recommend you not to put any product on your hair and to wash 1 day prior to redeeming your makeover photoshoot package. Your hair will be dry-styled only (you don’t need to worry about it being cut).
