What happens at a consultation, and when should I have one?

Bridal consult/trials are important because you'll be able to discuss and preview your vision which will put you more at ease on your wedding day. At a consult you will discuss your wedding style, skin care needs, and design a look unique to you. Usually it takes 1-2 hrs.  If at anytime after your original bridal consult/trial you decide you'd like to do a second one to try another look, you may book an additional trial (See Policies & Procedures).

Why do I have to sign a contract?

Contracts are mandatory when doing any kind of business. It protects the Make-up Artist who's providing the services, as well as the client receiving them.

Lash extensions VS. false lash strips/individuals for my wedding?

Lash extensions have become more and more popular, especially amougnst brides. They are a nice alternative to strip lashes because the extensions last 2-4 weeks (when cared for properly), are extrememly light weight, and there's no need for mascara!

Beauty tips for brides before the wedding day:

 

 

  • If you have any major skin concerns be sure to see to them at least 6 months before the wedding by seeing a dermatologist, starting on a proper skincare regime or getting facials.

 

  • If you have an inflamed blemish nearing your wedding day, don't squeeze!  Try icing it to reduce swelling, and apply a gentle spot treatment such as tea tree oil diluted with water or oil *note that some spot treatments can be very drying, and not recommended for everyone

 

  • Drink lots of water to hydrate your skin, use your SPF and try to get the proper amount of sleep- it's the best beauty advice!

 

  • Don't change your skincare regime within a couple weeks of your wedding day, it's not the best time to experiment! 

 

  • Be careful with self-tanners. They're great for achieving that healthy glow without the damage but practice with products long before to make sure you know what it will look like. Professional spray tans are the way to go! If you do get unsightly streaking, there are self tan removing products you can purchase at most beauty or drugstores.
