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.





Wedding Day

CAN YOU DO MY WHOLE BRIDAL PARTY?


My average size bridal party that I work on is 8-10 styles. I do work at a very efficient pace and have a great track record of being on time and many times finishing before the projected finishing times! Additonal Artist: If you would like me to contract an additional artist, please let me know so I can get their availability for your wedding day! I contract the MUA(s) when I receive the retainer to book the wedding date. Fun Fact: 15 people was the largest bridal party I worked on solo!




DO I NEED A PROFESSIONAL ARTIST?


Here are a few of the reasons why you should consider a Professional make-up artist for your wedding day. If any of these apply to you, then it's probably worth having a professional make-up artist. You are unsure what colors to use and how best to apply make-up for the photography. You want the make-up to last all day. You would be too nervous on the morning of the wedding to apply your own make-up. -You want to be pampered on your wedding day. You want your wedding pictures to look flawless. This is your wedding day and you want to look your absolute best. You have spent so much money on your photographer, dress, shoes, jewelry, and reception hall. Why would you want to skimp out on your face?




HOW LONG FOR SERVICES?


All services take about 30-45 minutes. Service schedules are made 30 days before the wedding to make sure everything runs efficiently and there are plenty of touchups times and wiggle room.
