Watch Me Apply Makeup!

Yes, we can travel to you on your special day. We come prepared and ready to make your wedding day preparations smooth, exciting and beautiful.

We DO NOT require a minimum for an artist to come to you and your location.

Airbrush makeup is makeup that is applied in a fine mist through use of an airbrush machine. We use a silicone based product which is most like out skin and helps create and even, flawless coverage. This allows for a range of Light to Full Coverage Application (based on your preference) without feeling like there is a lot of makeup on your face and it gives your skin a beautifully natural finish. Airbrush can be applied on anyone, including men. Our airbrush makeup is water/sweat resistant and holds up in high temperatures.
Traditional makeup is usually in the form of a liquid or a cream and applied with a foundation brush and/or makeup sponge. You can achieve a Medium to Full Coverage with this as well.

All of the hair and makeup products that we use are Professional Brands that were designed to give you long lasting results and photograph beautifully. They are bought through professional retailers that in many cases have exclusive products only offered to professionals. We do not restrict our kits to just one product line, we choose to use the best products (our favorites based on experience) for specific uses with a wide variety of product lines.
Some of our favorite lines include Temptu, Nars, Mac, Benefit, Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Stila, Charlotte Tilbury, YSL, Lorac, Tarte, etc.

It is your wedding day and we want to make sure you ultimately do what you want to do! However, there are things to consider like whether your makeup contains high levels of SPF or titanium dioxide as these won’t work for a wedding photographer who uses flash as it can cause problems in photo’s. Many of the professional products used today have been developed so they are suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin. That being said, if you really want to use your own product, we can definitely incorporate them into your look.

Absolutely, all skin tones, skin types and ages!

If you don’t want to look too “made up” for your wedding we can give you a very soft, natural bridal look. It is important on this day that your makeup lasts, looks great in photos, makes you feel beautiful and is applied flawlessly to make you look and feel your best!

You are welcome to send us inspirational pictures for your unique look prior to your trial run. However, it is not required or necessary and we do schedule enough time for that to be discussed and viewed during your trial.

It is not necessary to bring anything along to your trial. However, if you do have your veil and/or hair accessories then this would be extremely helpful for your stylists.

It is up to you if you want to schedule your bridal party. I will say that more times than not, schedules tend to get tossed out due to the bridal party not showing up at their scheduled times and in that situation…the show must go on. We show up at our start time and we must have women in our chairs at all times to ensure your photo ready time is met. This is a super simple process, as long as your bridal party is there we will rotate services approximately every 30 mins.

Well you can never be too prepared so yes, there are a few things. Please make sure that your bridal party understands that they should show up with dry hair. Our scheduled service time for hair is for styling and that does not include drying.
As far as the makeup is concerned, we can ensure that you and your bridal parties makeup will not need to be touched up after we leave but depending on how much your bridal party is eating or drinking, their lips may start to wear overtime, even with lip stains. We are able and will do lip touch up’s before we leave but to have a flawless look it may not be a bad idea for them to have something to touch up their lips with throughout the day or evening.

We recommend knowing most of the information before sending in the contract. However, we understand that you may not have all the details pinned down when booking your services so far in advance. We are always willing to accommodate any changes that may need to be made but we do recommend updating us with all of your fine details prior to your wedding day.

A $150.00 deposit is required to secure your wedding date. This deposit will pay for your trial run in full and the remainder will be deducted from the final balance the day of your wedding.

We accept cash, venom and credit card. However, there is a 3% processing fee on all credit card transactions used on the day of the wedding. We do have an online invoicing system for your “Save the Date” Deposit and that can be paid with credit card and there is NO processing fee. If you wanted to pay by check, that can be paid in advance, prior to the wedding day.
