No! We provide everything need for a beautiful and long lasting makeup. We use special makeup that is formulated to last a long time, look great in person as well as on camera. We have every skin tone under the sun and custom mix each clients foundation to match their skin tone.
If you or one of your crew has allergies, we would be happy to apply their makeup for them. using their own products that they know work for them.
do you do airbrush makeup?
Yes! We use airbrush makeup for most of our makeup services. It is perfect for weddings because it creates a lightweight, flawless finish and is waterproof. So it will stay put through dancing, hot summer days and all of those kisses with your Love. It also reduces fine lines and minimizes pores and stays put on even the oiliest skin types. For clients who would like fuller coverage or who have certain textures of skin, we use traditional makeup which looks great as well and lasts all night.
do you do lashes?
Yes! All of our makeup services include lashes if you would like to use them. We use a variety of lash lengths and volumes to achieve your perfect wedding look. We only use individuals as they look way better and feel way more comfortable. During your trial or consultation we can figure out which will work best for your wedding look.
do you have an assistant or do you work alone?
I have a number of assistants that I bring along with me to weddings depending on party size and what services we are doing for your wedding. I have hair assistants that specialize in updos and curls as well as makeup assistants that are master painters with their airbrushes and blushes.
I do all brides hair and makeup and I will typically work alone on parties of 4 or less.
how do i secure my date and work with you?
We are excited you want to work with us on your wedding day! Visit our Wedding Date Inquiry page to submit your date and information. We will let you know if we are available for your wedding date as soon as possible and then you can move forward and make a deposit to secure your date. In order to hold your date, a deposit of the bride’s wedding day services is required when you book. We only do one wedding per day so the entire day is devoted to making you and your girls beautiful.
how long does it take to get hair & makeup done?
Wedding Day hair and makeup typically last between 3-5 hours total. We arrive 15 minutes before to get setup and build in a 15-30 minute touch up time at the end as a cushion to make sure you are on time and that everyone looks amazing. Bridesmaids and moms hair or makeup services are 30 minutes each. Brides will have 1 hour 15 minutes for hair and makeup or 45 minutes for either hair or makeup.
When you book with us, I will create a detailed schedule for your wedding day for you to approve of with start and end times as well as time slots for each person in your group. This creates a straight forward and stress free day for you.
No! A hair or makeup trial is a great way to make sure we are a good fit for your vision. You do not need to sign a contract or pay a deposit to do a hair and makeup trial. You will want to do a trial sooner than later so you don’t risk someone else booking your date first before you can come in for your trial.
If you know that you want to book us before your trial, great! We would get your date secured first and then you could come in for your trial any time before your wedding.
