Frequently Asked Questions 

Booking

HOW DO I BOOK YOU FOR MY WEDDING?


Fill out a contact form on the "SAVE MY DATE!" page. Once we find out if your date is availible I will send you information. A retainer payment and signed contract is required in order to secure your wedding date. The retainer payment to secure your date is 35% of the total services.




IS THERE A MINIMUM NUMBER OF SERVICES TO BOOK?


Nope! I offer individual rates or a special rate for over 5 adult makeup applications- including the bride.




HOW FAR IN ADVANCED SHOULD I BOOK?


No time is ever too soon! Many brides book 2 years out. I strongly recommend booking no later than 6 months before your wedding.





Makep Preview

DO I NEED A TRIAL?


YES! Trials are required for this bride. On one of the biggest days of your life, it’s important to try to avoid any hiccups that may occur and make sure that the day goes smoothly. We have to find what works and what doesn't work for you.

Think of is this way, you wouldn't buy a dress and wear it without getting alterations to make sure it fits you in all the most flattering places. It should be the same with your makeup and your hair trial. It’s like a form of insurance for not only for you, the bride, but also for me. My success rate for making happy, beautiful brides is making sure they are confident in their makeup that we created at their trial and I can make those adjustments, if needed, for their wedding day. So when the day comes we aren't sitting in the chair going back and forth deciding colors.




CAN MY MOM OR OTHER PEOPLE HAVE A TRIAL?


Of course! Any additional trials must be done the same date as the brides trial.




WHERE DOES MY TRIAL TAKE PLACE?


Trials are done at my home studio in Algonquin or ons-site at a location of your choosing. Travel fees will apply if traveling to on-site location.




WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY TRIAL?


I typically recommend scheduling your trial 3 months to 4 weeks before your wedding. Trials are to be scheduled on weekdays. Friday- Sunday availability is very limited due to the nature of the business and commitment to weddings previously booked. Any trials booked on a Friday - Sunday are subject to be rescheduling based on wedding party requests. It's also best to schedule a trial the same as your hair trial, dress fitting days, and engagements photos days is best as you can get the full look. Note: Having trials the same day as showers can be very stressful with other details taking priority. Plus, having too many opinions is the last thing you need!




CAN I HAVE A TRIAL BEFORE I BOOK?


Want to try it before you buy it? Yes, you can have a trial before booking and securing your date. However, booking a trial does not guarantee or secure your date. If your date is still available and you'd like to secure your date after your trial, the trial fee is then deducted towards your final balance. Appointments do go fast, especially during busy wedding season. Some brides prefer to do their trial appointment as soon as possible but could risk loosing their wedding date while waiting for their trial. A trial date doesn't hold your date. Only a retainer payment and signed conract secures your date.
