YOU MAY BE WONDERING...


What makes Bridal Makeup so Different?
I always get the question...."What makes Bridal Makeup different? or Why does it cost so much more?"
The answer is simple...it's the attention to detail, the personalisation, the luxury top of the line products and the knowledge to ensure that the makeup sustains for hours while looking gorgeous on film, camera, colour and black & white. Bridal makeup is an art that value must be found. As your bridal artist it is my job to make sure you not only love your look today but also love your look 15, 20, 30+ years from now.  That every flaw you disliked is camouflaged and every feature you love is enhanced. That every fine detailed is never overlooked. Bridal Makeup is different because it's not everyday makeup. It set's differently, translates differently and captures differently. Bridal makeup is unique and has a need of advance skill, a trained eye and experience. 


What's in my Kit?
....everyone wants to know! My kit holds a host of products both professional and consumer brands all of great quality. Products that I've researched and tested and those that made the cut made their way into the kit. My kit staples have been carefully curated to handle many situations, events, clientele and much more. 
My kit favourites include: KETT, Kevyn Aucoin, Makeup Forever, Nars, YSL, Hourglass, Lorac and much more. 


Securing your date?
Minimum 50% retainer, along with signed contract is required to secure any date. Thereafter full payment must be completed 30 days prior to secured date. 
 

Is there a minimum to book you as an artist?
Yes. Wedding season can get extremely busy and in order to maintain order we require a minimum for each wedding requesting on-site service. 
 

Why should I hire a Professional Makeup Artist?
Hiring a professional bridal makeup artist is an essential part of your wedding. We are here as professionals to ensure that your makeup will be customised to your features and styled to last the entire wedding and reception while keeping you camera ready. Having invested in an amazing photographer, your wedding day is not the day to risk doing your own makeup or having a friend or family member do it and ruining those precious photos. A makeup artist is professionally trained and come armed with experience, techniques and tips to keep you looking and feeling your best but also making sure you look AMAZING in both video & photo...colour, black & white. Makeup artist come with an extensive kit of products and tools to sustain your look through hugs, kisses, dancing, heat and eating while remaining camera ready. We are here to help in any way and ease any stress. Remember, when all the food is gone and music as ended your photos will show you and generations to come the dress, hair, nails & makeup!


What is a Preview & why should I have one?
Bridal preview allows you and your artist to sit and design an exclusive look for your day. It is also an opportunity to sit with your artist and experience our services before your special day. This exclusive signature look will be designed based on various bridal looks you may admire and maybe wanted to try but never had a chance too. You will be able to discuss exactly what you envision and your artist will execute your desired look and correct any issues as well as test the elements prior to your wedding date, reducing any stress or shock on your special day. Previews are scheduled for 6 – 8 weeks prior to your secured wedding date.  Appointments are held according to artist’s availability and at location of artist’s choice.  All Bridal Previews are already included in all packages so we are able to design the best looks for all your bridal events.


When should I book?
Dates are secured on a 'first come, first served' bases as we only take a limited number of brides each year. To ensure that the date you want is available it is encouraged that you book anywhere from 6 months to 1 year in advance. Dates are confirmed with retainer and signed service contract.


Do we travel?
Of Course! Destination Weddings services are available for any and everywhere you desire. 
We provide excellent styling services to ensure that you have everything that makes you look and feel your best, making sure nothing is left to chance. You will be taken care of from rehearsal dinner to brunch to your big day and everything in between.
Please contact us for customised packages to fit your needs.


Airbrush vs. Traditional, which is best for me?
Application choice is at the discretion of the client and is dependent on personal preference. Airbrush is neither better or worse than traditional makeup but rather an advanced skill. With a different application method Airbrush melts effortless into the skin creating a natural glow. Allowing for easily build-able coverage and range, I can create a fully airbrushed look from eyes, to face, to lips and even tattoo cover-up.
KETT Airbrush Makeup is one of the leading brands in airbrush makeup. Water resistant, water based formula, long-wear, adjustable coverage, weightless and natural finish. KETT is hydrating, anti-oxidant rich, vegan, fragrance and paraben-free which makes it the best and the best is what I provide my brides. KETT airbrush makeup works wonders on ALL skin types and tones from everyday wear, special occasion, tattoo coverage to body art. 


I'm a Little to No Makeup Person..?
That is perfectly fine. We specialise in clean, soft, natural beauty looks. Ensuring that we are bringing out the best in all our clients and allowing them to see themselves when they look in the mirror. As artists there are techniques that can be used to keep you soft & radiant without looking too made up or overly done. It is imperative that you are comfortable in your look while still looking gorgeously you. During your preview is when we will design your customised look that makes you feel beautiful and look your best on your special day.
