Q: “What is the difference between airbrush makeup
and traditional makeup?”
A: Airbrush makeup (foundation) is made for camera work, so
it photographs beautifully. It is also extremely long wearing.
When the skin is prepped properly, airbrush holds onto the skin
to provide a long-wear, and beautiful finish. Who wants to worry
about touch-ups on their wedding day?! It also appears very
natural, but you can build up coverage in problem areas where
you might have scarring or break outs! I highly recommend
airbrush for all skin types. Traditional makeup is also beautiful,
but doesn’t wear quite as well/long. You will want to bring
powder to touch up after a couple hours (especially if it is a hot
day). Sometimes, traditional makeup is recommended if you
have irritated, dry, flaky skin. We can figure out what is best
for your at your trial!
Q: “I’m tan now, but will probably be much lighter on my wedding day. Is the makeup going to match me?”
A: In my makeup kit I have a wide range of shades for foundation and concealer. I will always match your face to your neck/body so that your face is not lighter or darker than your body, but is the perfect match! If you are tan on your trial date, but fair on your wedding date -that’s okay! I will assess your skin tone the day of and match it!
Q: “On my wedding day I think my bridesmaids might change their mind on if they want airbrush or traditional makeup, and I think they might want to add lashes. Is that okay?”
A: Absolutely, if your bridesmaids decide they want to upgrade on your wedding day, that is totally fine! They can pay the difference at the time services are rendered.
Q: “When should I schedule my trial?”
A: I recommend scheduling the trial 3-4 months before the wedding. By that time you will have already put a lot of thought into what look you want to go for! I suggest going on Pinterest and looking up makeup looks! It is helpful to bring an inspiration photo!
Q: “When should I book you for wedding day services?”
A: Since I primarily do weddings, my wedding season books up quick. A lot of brides book anywhere from 6-12 months in advance. You definitely want to reserve your wedding day as soon as you can by submitting the completed contract and 25% deposit. You are planning a wedding, so you have a lot of things on your mind. As many brides will tell you, your wedding day might seem far away but it will be here like THAT! So don’t put off booking because you think you have so much time, because time flies!
Q: “How long have you been doing makeup? How did you get started?”
A: I started doing makeup professionally in early 2012. Growing up, I always loved getting into makeup. I would watch my older sisters do their makeup and thought it was so fun and fascinating. I would do my friends makeup for cheerleading competitions, school dances, special occasions. It didn’t take long to realize that I love doing it, and that I am good at it! I turned my hobby into my profession, and I couldn’t be happier!
