Are prices negotiable/ is there a discount rate? No, pricing is firm. I want to offer the best products and skills, in order to do that, pricing must remain as quoted.
Do you offer airbrush makeup? No, at this time I only offer traditional makeup application. I prefer the look and feel of my brushes/ sponges, and traditional makeup.
What is the difference between the Traditional VS. Luxury Bridal packages? The Traditional Bride is a more affordable option which includes skin preparation, makeup application, and a small touch-up kit. The Luxury Bride offers 20 minutes of skin preparation prior the makeup application, and a touch-up kit with full sized items in it. Ask for more details!
How do you clean your products/ tools? Sanitation is so important! I use a multi-step process to clean not only my brushes and tools, but my products as well! Brushes are cleaned with Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner, then deep cleaned (water/soap), and finished off with 70% Isopropyl alcohol. Powder products are sprayed with alcohol, and any cream products are taken out using a stainless steel spatula and tray. Disposable mascara wands and lip wands are also used.
I have a lot of people needing makeup, can you accommodate? Yes! I have done bridal parties of 12 people before. We just need to have time management in place. For parties larger than 12, I may require a second artist to help.
Do you also offer hair services? No. I am only trained in makeup application. I do work with a few great hair vendors I can recommend, though!
What is my travel fee going to be like? I base my travel fee on total hours of travel time. Please inquire for more information.
Do I need to do a trial run? I strongly encourage you to book a trial run. It's a great time for me to get to know you and what you're looking for. I also take that time to take notes on your skin type, style of wedding, and more!
Can I/ should I bring my own makeup? Only under extreme circumstances will I use your own makeup (severe allergies, etc). My insurance only covers products within my own kit, so for safety reasons, I use makeup from there only.
What brand of makeup do you use? I use many! People have a wide variety of skin types and features. In order to accommodate all of those, I use a wide range of brands! Anything from MAC, Makeup Forever, and Estee Lauder, to Charlotte Tilbury.
Can't my sister or friend just do my makeup? Yes, I'm sure they could! However, I offer clean & sanitized products, professional knowledge, and the ability to accommodate many skin tones and types. Plus, shouldn't they be helping with wedding details on your big day?
Are lashes included in the price? Yes- they absolutely are!
How far in advance should I book? Like other wedding vendors, I typically book about a year in advance. Peak season wedding dates are typically May through October. During those months, I book a year or more in advance. Please don't hesitate to see if I still have your date available.
What can I expect on my wedding day? I will arrive a bit early to our determined start time to ensure I am setup and ready to go. From there, I will work with each client receiving services to create a custom look for them. Of course, I will take a bit of extra time with the bride to make sure things are perfect! I bring with me my full makeup kit, a chair, and a makeup light. I prefer to setup near a window or natural light for best results.
