Frequently Asked Questions
Do you provide lashes? Can I provide my own lashes to be applied?
Yes, I specialize in applying individual lashes and strip lashes. Individual lashes are like strip lashes, in that they are removed at the end of the night, but they go on in small bundles and are best for a softer lash look. I also carry standard strip and Velour lashes for someone who needs more of a structured lash, or in need of a fuller appearance. Also ideal for someone with very straight lashes. If you would like to have your own lashes applied, you are more than welcome to bring them (new and in the box). All fees still apply.
How long will my makeup last?
Your makeup should last till the next day if you want it to! Haha! Seriously though, the only thing you should have to touch up is lip products. For brides, we will pick out the lip color during your trial. After which, you can go out and purchase the full size. A touch up kit will also be provided for the Bride to be!
What is the minimum and maximum amount of people you can accommodate for a wedding day?
I am able to do as many as you need! I personally can do about 6 makeups depending on your time frame. However, if more makeups are needed, I will provided another artist for assistance at no extra cost. The minimum fee for a wedding day (including deposit) is a total of $500. A payment of $500 is still required if the minimum services/persons are not reached. (note: minimum does not include travel fees, however if you wish to include part of the minimum as gratuity, you may do so at your discretion. (Minimum applied Friday through Sunday during the wedding season, which is May through Thanksgiving and New Years Eve)
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, Venmo, or PayPal is preferred, however I am able to take credit card payments for your convenience!
Is there a deposit and contract to hold a wedding date?
Yes. For a wedding day a $150 deposit is due at the signing of the contract to hold your date. That deposit then goes toward the balance. Please note your date is not held until the contract is signed and the deposit acquired. I will need the location and head count to create the contract and get it ready for signing.
When should I schedule the trial?
You can schedule the trial whenever you feel comfortable. In my professional opinion you should schedule anywhere from a month to three months out. That said some brides prefer scheduling a trail before booking. Just keep in mind dates are not held until they are officially booked. Please feel free to research the portfolio, Instagram, and reviews. You should have skin free of makeup for the trial and photos of potential looks are helpful. Red carpet photos are best since there is less of a chance they are heavily edited or photo shopped.
Do you offer airbrush makeup?
I do not offer airbrush. I prefer the natural look of a traditional foundation. I find that airbrush foundation sits on top of the skin. I feel like I can control the coverage better, and can provide a much more comfortable/breathable feel on the skin. I am able to create a long lasting airbrushed effect with primers, quality tools, and top of the line foundation. I carried airbrush previously and I found that clients could not note a difference between airbrush and my technique, so I discontinued offering the service.
Do you provide hair services?
I specialize in makeup artistry, therefore I don't offer any hair styling. However, I am more than happy to provide recommendations! I have been fortunate enough to work with some of the best stylists in the industry. Please contact me for any and all vendors suggestions!
Is there a travel fee?
There is no travel fee for 70 miles round trip (35 miles one way), or under from Providence, RI. Anything outside that radius is $50 plus any additional mileage at $0.75 per mile. Events that require over 2 hours of travel one way, require accommodations for the night prior to event. Parking must be covered or validated for any makeup service. IMPORTANT: Please contact me for destination weddings, as different travel fees are applied (ie: locations that require train, ferry, or plane).
