For. The. Brides.
Q. How long will it take you to do makeup for my wedding party?
A. This depends on how many are in your wedding party for your special day. I like to book myself 50-60 minutes to complete bridal applications, and 35-40 minutes for bridesmaids/ mother of bride/groom, and anyone else on the day. In my experience, completing everyone's makeup including the bride, before the ceremony is perfect so that you can have time to arrive to your ceremony location, eat, change, and have pictures done, and of course breathe!
Q. Will you travel to where I'm getting married or do I need to travel to you?
A. The last thing a bride needs to worry about on her wedding day is travelling anywhere to get her makeup done, I ALWAYS will travel to you darling! I have no travel fee UNLESS your wedding ceremony is taking place outside of Calgary. With that in mind, I do travel to various locations for weddings as far as British Columbia, and would happily do that for any bride who is having her dream wedding somewhere outside of Calgary.
Q. Do I need a trial before my wedding day?
A. In a short and simple answer, no. However with that in mind, I do recommend that we do a trial together not only so I know exactly what you want, but also so that you can see what your vision really looks like on yourself. It allows us both a chance to get to know each other, and you are able to see any changes that you may want done after your trial, for your wedding day. I want you to be completely in love with your makeup, and a trial really lets both of us achieve that flawlessly. Most brides tend to book their trials on the day their showers, or bachelorette parties are being thrown so they can look flawless for those special events. I suggest having a trial at least a few months or more before your wedding!
Q. Would you stay for touch ups after the ceremony?
A. I absolutely can stay for touch ups, however this does come with an extra charge depending on if you want your entire bridal party touched up or just yourself, and how long you would like me to stay for touch ups.
Q. What kind of makeup do you use?
A. I only use high end makeup products, as I trust higher end brands with exceptional quality and standards. Brands such as MAC, Urban Decay, Smashbox, Stila, Becca, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Makeup Geek, Benefit, Tarte, NARS, Bobbi Brown and many more are my favourites.
Q. Do you carry your own lashes for the wedding party or do I need to purchase our own lashes beforehand and bring them?
A. I will ALWAYS carry various kinds of lashes for you and your wedding party to choose from according to your liking. If there are certain lashes that you want, and have purchased beforehand, then of course I will apply those for you on your wedding day.
