I don’t wear a lot of makeup but I want to look beautiful on my wedding day, should I hire a professional?
Absolutely! You don't have to wear a lot of makeup on your wedding day to look beautiful, it just needs to be applied correctly and with the appropriate products. 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 most important on this day that your makeup lasts, looks great in photographs, makes you feel beautiful and is applied flawlessly to make you feel and look your best on this very special day.
Why is a makeup trial important?
To ensure the perfect look for your wedding day, a trial session is strongly recommended. Trial sessions are a preview for our bride to try out the hair and makeup design for their wedding day. A successful trial will take around 2.5 hours typically. By completing a trial the bride is offered a chance to experience the beauty she would become on the wedding day. This also provides the opportunity for the artist and the bride to collaborate and share ideas on any improvements or changes pertaining to the look for the wedding day.
What do I need to prepare for trial?
During the trial, it is strongly recommended for bride to bring photos of her dress, accessories, photos of the accessories, and any photos related to the wedding theme. With as much related information given, the better the artist can tailor and prepare for a unique and elegant appearance of the bride.
When is the best time to schedule the trial session?
2 to 3 months prior to the wedding day.
What if while signing the contract, the exact number of bridal party (bridesmaids/relatives/moms) needed to retain service for makeup and hair service was still undetermined, when would be the latest time to confirm with the artist?
I require 4 services of each kind to include travel in Portland metro areas. If less travel fee will be additional. As far as additional services, as soon as possible, as this will impact our ability to book enough artists to perform the service to the bridal party.
Wedding day service duration and time break down?
Bridal makeup or hair session usually requires 1 hour for each on the day of the wedding. Bridesmaids will take 45 minutes. We will provide multiple artists for any large bridal parties if necessary.
What cosmetics do you use?
To name a few....Face Atelier, Bobbi Brown, Mac, Urban Decay, Stila, Makeup forever, Ben Nye, RCMA
Do you perform air brush services?
No not at this time.
Do you provide hair extensions?
No, but if you don’t have your own to bring I have a great suggestion for custom ones made just for your length and color. Clip ins or permanent available. We will put them in and style if needed including in styling price.
Do you provide on site services?
Yes I do! With a minimum of 4 services required I do include travel, additional travel cost if less depending on location. Why worry about getting yourself and all of your party shuffled around and off to the wedding location on time when I can come to you?! All wedding day services are all done on-site and trial run can be done in my studio. I can come to the venue, hotel, home, or wherever you are most comfortable and is the most convenient for you and your wedding party!
