Here are Some F.A.Q's
Are you licensed and certified?
I am! I have been a licensed cosmetologist for 10 years as well as a certified makeup artist. I am not "self taught" (although I think any artist can say they are somewhat) I have been educated on skin care and skin conditions, as well as color theory and placement. Applying skin care and cosmetics safely and effectively is number one priority.
Do you offer airbrush makeup?
Yes, airbrush is my preferred method of application. I absolutely love the range of coverage and the finish it provides for all skin types! You will rarely see a brush or sponge in my hand for foundation application.
Do you travel and what is your range?
Of course! All of my services for your wedding day are on location where it is most convenient for you and your bridal party. I typically stay within a 100 mile radius of 03037, but I am always open to a little adventure!
How many weddings do you take per day?
Just one! I never take more than one wedding per day, and sometimes only one wedding per weekend. I really like to focus on each bride and make their day all about them! This also allows me to be flexible and able to work with a bride's schedule and time changes easily. I also like to limit the number of weddings I take per month. I believe in work-life balance and that if you commit to too much then you can't give each 100%!
Are you able to take on large bridal parties?
I absolutely can! Myself alone, am able to provide services for up to 6 people in a 4-5 hour time span. I have a few fellow makeup artists that I am able to bring along with me on the wedding day for groups larger than 6. Any artist taking care of your bridal party is going to deliver equivalent quality of work and professionalism.
Do you offer trials?
I do! I actually require that a bride have a makeup trial with me prior to the wedding and recommend booking about 4-6 weeks from the date. This not only helps me to get to know you and your style, but it really helps you to feel at ease and comfortable with the process. Once you are happy with your look, I will document all of the makeup used in detail onto a personalized face chart to refer to on the wedding day.
What do you bring with you on the wedding day?
My complete makeup kit! And, I always travel with foundation shades ranging from dark to light to accommodate all skin tones. I also bring counter height folding chairs and an extra lighting source for darker spaces with a lack of natural light. Oh, and I might also have safety pins, scissors, and a mini sewing kit just in case!
