I can't believe I've waited so long to do this blog post - because these are the most-asked questions I get from potential clients! I hope this post is a great resource for you as you begin or finalize wedding day plans. If I missed something, please feel free to comment below and I will answer you personally :)
1. How do I book you for my special event?
-Complete the Contact Form and I'll personally respond within 48hrs to confirm availability for your date.
-Once confirmed and necessary information is collected, I will send you a contract via a digital app.
-A 50% retainer of total services is required (along with signed contract) to secure the date. Remaining balance is due by the event date.
2. How far in advance should I book my date?
Typically 6-8 months prior to your event, but dates start filling up 9-18 months in advance. However, it's never too late to book either because we just might have an opening in our calendar for you!
3. Do you provide on-location services and is there a minimum?
Yes! We are 100% mobile which means we can accommodate you whether you are getting ready at your home, venue or hotel! Additional fees such toll roads & parking will be added to the contract if needed. During peak season (May-September), we require a minimum of four services for weddings.
4. What is a Bridal Preview?
It is a 1.5 hour consultation/makeup session where you and the artist can create your perfect look for your special day. Currently, previews are only scheduled Monday-Thursday after 6pm and some weekends upon availability.
5. Do you do airbrush foundation?
Yes, we offer both traditional and airbrush makeup. Airbrush add-on to any service is $15.
6. What is the difference between traditional and airbrush makeup?
Traditional - is a Liquid, cream, and/or pressed powder that is usually applied with a sponge, brush or finger tips.
Airbrush - We use Temptu products (silicone based) and it is a light-weight liquid makeup applied through an air gun and compressor. It will even out skin tone, but does not correct texture problems with the skin such as pores, acne, etc.
7. What kind of makeup/skincare do you use?
We use a variety of pro-approved brands! Our favorites include Make Up For Ever, MAC, Temptu, Viseart, and Dermalogica.
8. Do you do hair too?
We currently only specialize in makeup artistry, however, we do partner with a few local professional hairstylists who, if needed, provide their services on-site as well.
9. How much time will you need to complete my entire wedding party?
We arrive 15 minutes before start time to setup. The Bridal Party takes 45 minutes each service and the Bride is 60 minutes.
10. What about touch ups?
We recommend that each person pack a lipstick and blot sheets at minimum. If you prefer your artist stick around for touch-ups, that can be arranged at an additional hourly rate.
11. Can I hire you for the entire day?
Yes, full-day rates are available, please inquire. Or you can book me for an additional $100/hr.
12. Is the cost of transportation included in my quote?
Complimentary travel is provided within Orange County, CA. Please inquire for a travel quote. Additional fees such as toll road & parking will be added to the contract.
13. Do you provide services for Tattoo Coverage:
Yes. This must be discussed before event date. Additional fees will be determined based off the size and color.
14. What if I need an Additional Artist?
An additional artist may be requested if there is a large group and if services need to be done within a limited time. The additional fee is $125 and will be included in the contract.
15. Do you travel or provide services for destination weddings?
Yes. Please note that flights, accommodations, daily rates and meals will be added to the quote.
I hope that I covered it all but again, please do not hesitate to reach out if I can assist you any further! Don't be a stranger, come hang out on social media:
