F R E Q U E N T L Y    A S K E D   Q U E S T I O N s


QDo you provide wedding consultations and trials?

A:  Yes, I fully recommend them.  It is at this time the bride and I will talk about style, colors, and wedding details.  A full makeup application (as if it were the day of) will be included in the trial.  Sessions typically run 2 hours.


Q:  Is there a bridal contract?

A:  Yes, there is.  This is usually discussed at the consultations and is given to the bride upon booking.


Q:  Is all bridal makeup done by one person?

A:  Most of the time, yes.  At most, I can work on 6-8 people depending on makeup style.  Any more than that, another makeup artist will be recruited.


Q:  How long does a makeup session take?

A:  It can range from 30 - 45 minutes depending on any skin issues as well as the complexity of the job. 


Q:  Are the makeup and brushes cleaned?

A:  Yes.  Before every makeup job, the brushes are deep-cleaned and makeup is sanitized.  Certain makeup products - such as mascara, lip gloss, etc. - are replaced on a regular basis.  For makeup application on more than one individual, brushes go through a quick cleaning process between each person and makeup is also sanitized.


Q: Are your products low-end or high-end?

A:  Most of the products I use are high-end (MAC, NARS, Makeup Forever, Urban Decay) but I also use low-end products such as Loreal and Cover Girl.  I use what I think works well.


Q: What type of environment do you need to work in?

A:  As long as I have a small place to set my makeup kit and brushes, I  am ready to go.  A space with ample lighting is also essential (natural lighting is best).  On larger jobs, I bring my portable makeup chair for convenience.
