The answer is simple; education, experience, knowledge and they create a stress-free, convenient environment. You want every thing to be perfect on your wedding day and so do they. The last thing you need to stress about is making sure your makeup looks just right. Relax; hire a professional bridal makeup artist that will come to you, which puts more time in your already busy schedule. With experience and skill, a makeup artist is able to create a look for you that fits you, your personality, and enhances your natural beauty. You will save time and energy and its fun! It is very important that your makeup will look as beautiful and relevant in 20 years as it does on the day of your wedding.
Yes absolutely! I suggest you begin looking through my previous work or other social media outlets and finding several make-up photos that you like. On your bridal trial, I will create a look based on what you are wanting to achieve, from vintage to modern to natural. I'll also help you identify and accentuate your most flattering features to reveal your natural beauty. It can be daunting trying to find a look that you want, but I promise the process will be painless and polished.
I do offer bridal trials and would highly recommend it! During the trial, we will discuss and sample out the makeup style you've chosen and tweak it to fit you and make any changes if necessary. With trials, it will also allow you to wear the makeup for the day and see how it feels and holds up in preparation for your wedding day. Then come day of your wedding, we would have the look nailed down already and everything will be a breeze!
The makeup will last all day without needing hardly any touch ups with the exception of lips (due to eating/drinking etc/extra oily tzone). As a professional makeup artist, I am able to apply and set your makeup to ensure it looks as beautiful in the first hour as it does in the 8th hour.
I only use the best products that I've personally have had experiences with myself to ensure its performance is up to quality. Main brands that I use in my kit are MAC, Makeup Forever, Laura Mercier, NARS, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Hourglass, INGLOT, Smashbox, Dior, Estee Lauder, TooFaced, Fenty, Tarte, etc. Other brands and products are always added throughout time as well.
Skincare prep is also a crucial part of the application process to ensure your makeup holds up well throughout the day. Skincare products that are used for prep are Shiseido, Bobbi Brown, Charolette Tilbury, Kiehls and Embryolisse . (Brands and products are always added and rotated throughout time.)
False lashes are also included in all my services. I use faux mink lashes, styles vary from natural to dramatic.
In my opinion, false eyelashes complete a full makeup look. It is the finishing touch that adds that extra glam and sparkle to any look whether it be natural or dramatic. If you wear lash extensions, you may opt out of having additional false lashes applied.
Makeup applications are scheduled for 1 hour and 30 mins. It may take less time, but 1 hour and 30 mins would be allocated per person to ensure proper application with no rush or hurry.
45 mins is the allocated time for other members of the bridal party or mother’s etc.
Unfortunately, I am not available for partial makeup services. For a look to be whole, complete and to represent my work, the makeup will need to be done by me from start to finish. This will also ensure the makeup will last all day. I do not touch up or do work modification on other artist's work if there will be more than 1 makeup artist for your bridal party.
Yes! I travel to you for the wedding day, this makes it more convenient for you, and we will be in the comfort of your own home or location for the wedding day. Cost of travel is a flat fee of $200 if you're within 1 hour and 30 minutes of Indianapolis, IN. Any miles after that would be an additional mileage fee. Where parking, valet or toll fees may be incurred. This amount will be included in the final bill and
will be due on the day of the event.
If you decide to move forward and book me for your wedding day, I will just require a $50.00 non-refundable deposit to hold the date and an additional $10 PER bridesmaid, mob and or mog. the remaining amount will be due on, or before your wedding day. Please keep in mind that all dates are first come first serve. Which means whoever I receive the contract and deposits from first gets the date. (Trial fee is separate)
All rates are firm and non-negotiable. Negotiating pricing or policies will not be tolerated and may result in a decline of booking.
