How far in advance should I book you?
It is best to book at least 6 months in advanced for my services. Weddings that are in the spring/summer months tend to be the busiest time of the year and those usually get booked about a year in advanced. The sooner the better, and if you are booking less than 4 months before your wedding, please contact me, I may still be available!
How do I book and secure my wedding date/services?
A 50% non- refundable retainer is required to book & secure your wedding date. This is applied to your entire package booked. All bookings are confirmed once contract has been signed and retainer has been paid.
When should I book my preview session?
Previews - or a trial - usually take place on weekdays anytime or on the weekends during the evening. It would be best if you booked your trial date at least 3-4 months prior to your wedding date. Morning/afternoon is best as you will be able to see the wear and longevity of your makeup and hairstyling.
What do I need to have for my preview session?
Full preview instructions and preparation will be emailed to you. This will include things like: pictures of hairstyles and makeup. Hair and face prep the day of, accessories etc.
How long does makeup and/or hair usually take?
Makeup for bride can take anywhere from 45 min to 1 hour depending, whereas the bridal party/attendees can take up to 30 min. Hair for bride will take up to an hour and bridal party attendess will be up to 30 min as well. You will be provided a strict timeline before your wedding day that will show you the schedule and will include start time and finish time.
Preview session can take anywhere from 2-3 hours depending on hairstyles chosen, more information on this will be emailed to you.
Do you provide any specialty services?
(airbrush makeup, false eyelashes, hair extensions etc)
Airbrush makeup is included for all bridal services and special occasion bookings. There is an additional fee for bridesmaids/attendees that are interested. False eyelashes are included for every makeup service booked. Hair extensions will be available soon but not at the moment but I can refer you to a few places that offer them.
How many people are you able to accomodate?
I am able to book as many people that you need services for. I have a team of makeup artists and hairstylists that I fully trust and able to bring with me on your special day. Depending on the time frame and number of services needed I am able to provide up to 2 other artists on your big day. There is a minimum of at least 10 services in order to book a 2nd artist.
Can you accomodate last minute bookings?
Of course! There may be a chance that I might not be booked. So please feel free to contact me and see.
In regards to any attendees on your wedding day that did not originally book, if time permits me to be able to work on them without disrupting the services that have already been paid for and booked I will happily work with them. Price will be the same as reflected in contract for any "add ons."
Will you be able to stay with me the whole day?
Once the entire party is finished with makeup and hair , last minute touch ups will be done before I leave. Because of the products that I use, it is rare that I would need to stay the whole day for you. For brides that wish to have touch ups or a style change before their reception I do offer packages. Please email for details and pricing.
How long will my makeup last?
Professional makeup will last throughout the day til you're kicking your heels off at night. Your makeup will be long lasting & tear proof. A touch up kit will be provided to all brides and special occasion bookings and will include: blotting powder, sponge, lipstick/lipgloss, eyelashes glue, q tips & bobby pins.
What kind of products do you use?
Most products that are in my kit are professional grade and not readily available to consumers. Most of which you won't be able to find in department stores or your local Sephora. I do carry some consumer brands that you may be able to recognize such as: Urban Decay, Too Faced , Make-up Forever, Nars, Tarte, Bobbi Brown, Big Sexy Hair, Moroccan Oil, Kenra etc.
Unfortunately I do not carry or use any mineral products like Bare Minerals. I have heard of many allergic reactions from clients and choose to not carry them in my kit for this reason.
I have very sensitive skin. Will you be able to use my products?
I will be very happy to work with your own products as long as you understand that it may not have the same finish as the professional products in my kit. If you know the items that you may be allergic to, please let me know so I know which products will work best for your skin.
Will you travel to me?
Having you feel comfortable is the most important thing to me. So yes, I provide on location services anywhere within the world! I want you to be stress free & happy in the comfort of your own home, hotel, wherever it may be. There is a traveling fee for anywhere outside of Orange County, Calif., on your wedding day and I will provide a customized quote for you wherever you may be.
