Bridal Q&A

Why Use A Professional Makeup Artist?

A Professional Makeup Artist has been certified in all facets of makeup and knows how to create the perfect, customized look for you that accentuates all of your best features using your skin tone, face shape, and eye shape/color and caters to your event. A Professional makeup artist also practices the strictest hygiene measures and uses products for longevity to keep you looking flawless for hours and that will stand up to kisses, tears, and perspiration.

How Large Of A Party Can You Do Makeup For?

I’m used to working with large bridal parties and can accommodate parties of any size. However, for large parties usually of 8 or more, I bring an assistant makeup artist with me to accommodate your party. This is at no-charge to you!

What Should I Expect To Happen At My Bridal Consultation?

During the bridal consultation, we’ll look at your makeup likes and dislikes, your dress, flowers, colors, and hair to create a bridal look that’s you. We’ll do a complete makeup run-through to make sure everything is perfect for your special day and discuss details such as time and location. If you would like, have pictures on hand of makeup you like and don’t like, and pictures of your dress, hair, and colors. I suggest booking the consultation on a day you’re going to go out someplace special to show off. The consultation takes about 90 minutes.

How Do I Go About Booking You?

Your wedding date is not booked until your deposit and booking have been paid ($50.00 non-refundable deposit & $50.00 booking fee) and contract is signed. Once paid and the contract has been signed, your wedding date will be booked. I cannot hold wedding dates without a contract and deposit as I received numerous inquiries for weddings. If two clients want the same date/time, the booking will go to the client that has signed and paid their deposit first.

Do You Offer Airbrush Makeup?

I do use Temptu Pro airbrush foundation and prefer it. I do not airbrush eye shadow. See below about the benefits of airbrush makeup vs. traditional makeup.

Why Is Airbrush Makeup Better Than Traditional Makeup?

Since airbrush makeup is sprayed onto the skin instead of being rubbed onto the skin, it doesn’t magnify pores and it allows your skin to breathe. Traditional makeup often feels thick and looks caked on and noticeable, whereas airbrush makeup blends onto your skin perfectly, giving you flawless coverage and creating a seamless veil of color over your skin. Airbrush makeup needs very little powdering and virtually no re-applying. It looks natural on camera, video, or in person, as if you’re wearing no makeup at all and have perfect skin. It can cover almost any skin imperfection without looking unnatural or “cakey”.

Do You Offer Hair Services?

No, but I can recommend many amazing hair stylists that I work with!

Do You Travel?

I do travel to almost anywhere. Please contact me for a travel quote.

What Brands of Makeup Do You Use?

Stila, Too Faced, Benefit, Morphe, Anastasia Beverly Hills, MAC, Bare Minerals, Tarte, Temptu Airbrush. I am constantly adding new products to my kit to keep up with the latest trends. Please let me know if you have ANY allergies whatsoever. There may be something in a product that you wouldn’t suspect would bother you, so please let me know!

When Is Payment Expected?

I take a $50.00 non-refundable deposit to hold your wedding date and the $50.00 booking fee. The final balance is due the day of the wedding date before we start services or once services are finished.

How Much Do You Charge?

Depends on type of service/event. Please see weddings for wedding services and rates, commercial services for photoshoot rates.

What Method Of Payment Do You Accept?

In-Salon: Cash, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Paypal, Apple Pay
