WHY IS IMPORTANT TO HIRE A MAKE-UP ARTIST FOR MY WEDDING/SPECIAL OCCASION?
The answer is quite simple; education, experience, knowledge and they create a stress-free, convenient environment. You want every thing to be perfect on your wedding day and so do they. The last thing you need to stress about is making sure your makeup looks just right. Relax; hire a professional bridal makeup artist that will come to you, which puts more time in your already busy schedule. With experience and skill, a makeup artist is able to create a look for you that fits you, your personality, and enhances your natural beauty. You will save time and energy and its fun! It is very important that your makeup will look as beautiful and relevant in 20 years as it does on the day of your wedding.
I AM NOT SURE WHAT MAKEUP LOOK I WANT ON MY SPECIAL DAY, CAN YOU HELP?
Yes absolutely! I suggest you begin looking through magazines and finding several make-up photos that you like. On your bridal trial, I will create a look based on what you like, and help you create the look you are hoping to achieve, from vintage to modern to natural. I'll also help you identify and accentuate your most flattering features to reveal your natural beauty. It can be daunting trying to find a look that you want, but I promise the process will be painless.
DO YOU OFFER BRIDAL TRIALS? IF SO, WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF THAT?
I do offer bridal trials and would highly recommend it! During the trial, we will discuss and sample out the makeup style you've chosen and tweak it to fit you and make any changes if necessary. With trials, it will also allow you to wear the makeup for the day and see how it feels and holds up in preparation for your wedding day. Then come day of your wedding, we would have the look nailed down already and everything will be a breeze!

HOW LONG WILL THE MAKEUP LAST? AND WHAT BRANDS DO YOU USE?
The makeup will last all day without needing any touch ups with the exception of lips (due to eating/drinking etc). As a professional makeup artist, I am able to apply and set your makeup to ensure it looks as beautiful in the first hour as it does in the 8th hour.
I only use the best products that I've personally have had experiences with myself to ensure its performance is up to quality. Main brands that I use in my kit are MAC, Makeup Forever, Laura Mercier, NARS, Bobbi Brown, Hourglass, INGLOT, Smashbox, Rimmel etc. There will be some other brands that I have and use but it may be 1 or 2 product here and there.
False lashes are also included in all my services. I use cruelty free mink lashes, (retails for $30.00) styles vary from natural to dramatic. (I no longer use human hair lashes, such as Ardell in my kit, but will be available by request with notice.)
WHY ARE FALSE EYELASHES NECESSARY AND CAN I OPT OUT OF USING IT?
In my opinion, false eyelashes complete a full makeup look. It is the finishing touch that adds that extra glam and sparkle to any look whether it be natural or dramatic. Price will remain the same even if opting out of lash service.
HOW LONG DOES MAKEUP APPLICATION TAKE? AND DO YOU OFFER MAKEUP SERVICES FOR OTHER MEMBERS OF THE BRIDAL PARTY?
Makeup applications are scheduled for 1 hour. It may take less time, but 1 hour would be allocated per person to ensure proper application with no rush or hurry.
Yes I also do makeup for bridesmaids and Mothers as well!
CAN I HIRE YOU FOR PARTIAL MAKEUP SERVICES? IE; JUST EYES, OR JUST FACE?
Unfortunately I am not available for partial makeup services. For a look to be whole, complete and to represent my work, the makeup will need to be done by me from start to finish. This will also ensure the makeup will last all day. Unfortunately I do not touch up or do work or modification on other artist's work if there will be more than 1 makeup artist for your bridal party.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK A MAKEUP ARTIST?
I would recommend to bookyour makeup artist as soon as you get engaged! LOL! Or as soon as possible. Wedding planning can sometimes be a nightmare (or so I've been told by previous brides), so since, in my opinion, getting makeup (and hair) services seems to be the cheapest and easiest part of planning a wedding, I'd recommend to get that out of the way, and hopefully that will ease some stress.
DO YOU TRAVEL TO ME AND TO THE WEDDING? IF SO, WHAT DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?
Yes! I travel to you for the wedding day, this makes it more convenient for you, and we will be in the comfort of your own home or location for the trial/wedding day. Cost of travel will vary depending on location. I also travel for trials as well, (additional travel fee may apply, see travel information in the pricing section).
WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO SECURE YOU FOR MY WEDDING DATE?
At the trial, if you decide to move forward and book me for your wedding day, I will just require a $150.00 non-refundable deposit to hold the date, and the remaining amount will be due on, or before your wedding day. (Trial fee is separate)
