How do I book you for my wedding?
A booking fee of $50 is required in order to secure your wedding date as booked. The booking fee is a payment separate from the services you choose to book and does not apply towards the total cost of services. No date will be held without a booking fee. A signed contract as well as 50% of the total cost of bridal services (trial, day-of makeup, etc.) is required at the time of your bridal makeup trial. The remaining balance is due on the wedding day. Bridal party payments are due at the time of service.
What should I bring TO my bridal trial?
At this time, your bridal deposit is due so please have your payment ready. Make sure to print out a bridal contract along with a bridal questionnaire. Bring these documents with you! Please have both filled out to the best of your ability prior to arrival. Having some photos of inspiration on-hand is highly recommended - this will allow me to collect an idea of the wedding day look you are aiming for! Also, wear a white top or a shirt with an open neckline. And of course, don't forget to bring a photo of your DRESS!
Do you travel?
What is your travel fee?
$1.00 per mile will be figured into the total cost of the services. If a second makeup artist is required or requested, the travel fee will duplicate. If travel time exceeds 2 hours, a hotel accommodation will be required for the makeup artist. Inquire for destination travel pricing.
What does the travel fee cover?
Driving time, gas expenses, travel mileage & maintenance following.
How do you handle payment?
I accept cash, credit/debit card, Venmo & PayPal. For all credit/debit card transactions, a transaction fee of 3.5% will apply. Please process PayPal payments as a “personal transaction”.
Should I tip?
If you feel that my service is stellar, by all means! In the case that a second makeup artist is required for hire in order to complete wedding day services on-schedule, an industry standard of 18% gratuity will be added to all on-location services.
When is a second makeup artist necessary?
If the number of persons requesting makeup services on the wedding day exceeds 5 or more, a second makeup artist may be required. This will be confirmed depending on the amount of time that you have available the morning of to get ready. If a second makeup artist is requested or required, a $200 fee will apply to the bridal client's total cost of services.
What if there is a cancellation?
If a contract must be terminated due to a wedding day cancellation, the bridal client is responsible for 50% of the total cost of services (bridal & bridal party included) booked for her date if canceled within 4 weeks prior to the wedding date. 100% payment will be charged to the bridal client if a cancellation occurs within 10 days of the wedding day.
How do I prepare for my makeup application?
One week prior to your makeup appointment, make sure that you are consistent with your skincare regimen by cleansing and moisturizing, day and night. Drink plenty of water. Use a gentle exfoliator on your skin twice a week. Clean up your brow shape by either tweezing, waxing or threading. Ask me for skincare samples!
What does a typical makeup application look like?
The skin will be prepped for makeup by removing any excess makeup or dirt on the skin. Moisturizer and primer is applied according to your skin type. Eye makeup will be done prior to the foundation to avoid eye shadow "fallout". Brows are filled in followed by contour, bronzer, blush and highlighter. Lashes are then applied following a lip color. The look is completed with setting powder and finishing spray.
Can I book "just eyes"?
No, I do not book partial makeup applications.
What makeup do you use?
I use high-end, professional grade products to ensure the best quality of luxury service. TEMPTU, LimeLife by Alcone, Make Up For Ever, RCMA, Anastasia Beverly Hills, M.A.C, Bobbi Brown and NARS are a few of the preferred cosmetic brands that I have found exceptional and are readily stocked in my professional makeup artist kit.
How long will my makeup application take?
When booking your special occasion makeup appointment, please allow for one hour and 15 minutes. If you are booking a bridal makeup trial, please allow 2 hours time. If you are bride, please allow 1 hour and 30 minutes for yourself and one hour per member of the bridal party on the wedding day.
