Q: I am not sure what makeup look I want on my special day. Can you help?
A: Yes. I highly suggest you begin looking through magazines, browsing Pinterest, or even Google to find several make-up photos that you like. On your bridal trial, we will create a look based on what you like.We will help you create the look you are hoping to achieve, from vintage to modern to natural. We will also help you identify and accentuate your most flattering features to reveal your natural beauty.
Q: Is a trial run important before the wedding day?
A: A trial run will give you a great opportunity to discuss with me what you have in mind for your special day. You can bring photos, magazine pages, or just explain how you would like your make-up to look. This is will give you the chance to get opinions from friends, family or even see how it photographs, in case there are any changes you would like made. I will complete a face chart, write all the colors used, and take a picture of your finished makeup to ensure you will receive the same results on your wedding day. Having a successful trial run will allow you to be stress free, and completely relaxed on your actual wedding day, knowing your makeup will look exactly how you envisioned.
Q: What kind of products do you use?
A: Everything I use for makeup that is going to be photographed is camera friendly. It has no SPF or ingredients in the powder/foundation that could change the way you look in a photo. I do carry products with SPF, but do not recommend using them with flash photography, because those certain products will reflect the flash of a camera, making your face appear lighter than it really is. I only use professional skin care and makeup in my kit, and am always updating my products with the newest and longest lasting products available. My kit consists of makeup from MAC, Make-up Forever, Chanel, Laura Mercier, and Smashbox to name a few. By using nothing but the best products, along with my skills and knowledge, you will receive a long lasting flawless finish with every application.
Q: How long will the makeup last?
A: The makeup application is designed to last throughout your entire wedding day.
Q: Why do I need a Makeup Artist instead of doing it myself?
A: Here are a few reasons why you should consider a make-up artist for your wedding day.
- You are unsure what colors to use and how best to apply make-up for the photography.
- You want the make-up to last all day.
- You would be too nervous on the morning of the wedding to apply your own make-up.
- You want to be pampered on your wedding day.
- You want your wedding pictures to look flawless.
- This is your wedding day and you want to look your absolute best.
- You have spent so much money on your dress, shoes, jewelry, reception hall.
- Why would you want to skimp on your face?
If any of these apply to you, then it’s probably worth having a make-up artist.
Q: What should I expect for the Wedding Day? Any tips for prepping the skin?
A: I recommend wearing a button/zip up shirt or hoodie so you won’t be pulling anything over your head that could mess up your hair and makeup. The only thing I ask you to bring is your own WATERPROOF MASCARA. and any remaining balance due for payment. As far as prepping the skin, I don’t recommend doing anything too out of the ordinary (like your first ever facial), but I would recommend getting into the habit of taking care of your skin as far in advance as possible (washing your face daily and using an exfoliator and cleansing mask 1-2 times a week) and if you have dry skin then make sure you are hydrating your skin properly! Vitamin E oil at night will do wonders for dry skin. The night before I would give your face and lips a good exfoliation and then moisturize with a good face and eye cream. Last but not least, get a good nights rest!
Q: Do you do hair for weddings also?
A: No, and you do not want me to attempt it, unless it is simple. I specialize and dedicate all my time keeping up with the newest and hottest makeup trends, as well as perfecting my techniques. I do have wonderful hair stylists I love to work with, and will be happy to provide you with a referral.
