Frequently Asked Questions
How do I work with you?
We start with a complimentary phone consultation, where I learn all about you and your beauty vision – what is your personality, style and vibe and what kind of look are you going for? What is inspiring you? What are your specific concerns and skincare needs. I believe in connecting and building a good relationship with all our clients – it generates the most precise and authentic results, plus makes the day that much more relaxed and enjoyable for you. After the phone consult, I schedule a preview and vision board to bring your dream look to life!
WHAT HAPPENS AT THE preview/trial?
This is where the bridal beauty magic starts. The preview , as I prefer to call, because it is exactly that—a preview your day-of glam. This is where we merge your personal vision with my professional input on what would be the best way to bring your inspirations to life. I usually set aside approximately 3 hours for the session to perfect your bridal look, and during this time I love to create a few variations of your concept so we have a few styles to choose from! To make most of our time together, communication and collabaration is KEY. I encourage and expect all my brides to be fully transparent and provide candid feedback. My goal is have feeling confident and beautiful on your wedding day; therefore, your input during the preview is so invaluable for me to accomplish this.
WHEN CAN I REQUEST A preview/TRIAL?
You want to start your searching for your dream beauty liaison as early as possible. Ideally, you want to have your makeup artist booked no later than 3-4 months before the wedding. While I encourage my customized, packages inclusive of the preview/trial and day-of glam, we can a separate if you wish to experience a trial session before you book with us. This would count towards your retainer/deposit and total if you decide to book with us. If you book with us before a trial, we will notify you when its time for your trial via email.
CAN I HAVE MY TRIAL THE DAY OF MY ENGAGEMENT PICTURES?
Yes, but we don't recommend it, unless you wish to have the same wedding look in your engagement pictures. Understanding the potential benefits to your budget, I’m happy to work with you to make slight variations to change up the look a bit.
HOW DO TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS WORK?
There are no travel fees for any event within NYC, NJ area unless overnight stays are required. For destination or long distance weddings, travel expenses and accommodations are included in the proposal. I am happy to handle travel and hotel arrangements for myself (and my team if necessary) with an approved budget, or the client can make these arrangements for us, whichever is most convenient for you.
DO YOU STAY FOR TOUCHUPS FOR THE DINNER AND AFTERPARTY?
Absolutely. During our phone consult, we discuss in details all of your potential needs. My goal is to personalize the entire experience from the beginning to the end. Every bride is different, I tailor my services to your needs— I can cover as little or as much of your event as you desire.
DO YOU DO THE WHOLE BRIDAL PARTY AND FAMILIES?
Of course, I handle small and large bridal parties. For parties with more than 4 people, I’ll bring a glam team of trained, talented artists with exceptional skills to accommodate any size group and get party ready in a timely fashion.
HOW MUCH TIME do you ALLOT FOR MAKEUP?
BRIDE (day of wedding): 1.5 hours
BRIDAL PARTY: 1 hour for bridesmaid.
