- Do you offer trials & when should I get one?
Yes! Although trials are not required, they are recommended so the team can together figure out your perfect bridal look. We recommend coming in 3-6 months before your wedding day for your makeup trial.
- What is Airbrush Makeup?
Airbrush makeup is a foundation application applied by using a portable airbrush machine (a small air compressor that connects to an airbrush sprayer). The foundation itself is an ultra light water-based liquid which sets immediately upon application. Being the foundation is sprayed on directly to the face as a fine mist, the liquid makeup that is dispersed from the airbrush machine is lightweight and provides a airy + light natural finish.
- Which option is more natural?
Both techniques can create a natural finish. Airbrush is lighter on the skin however traditional we can create a similar effect with a bit more coverage in the areas you want.
- Does Airbrush or Traditional last longer?
Since we are using primer, professional products, and setting spray/powder, both methods are meant to last all day. With the use of all these products, your makeup will last as long as 16 hours with airbrush and traditional applications.
- Do I need to sign the contract before our trial?
Due to our high demand, it is highly recommended to book your wedding date in advance. We require a contract to hold your date. Once we recieve a copy of your signed contract, we will contact you to let you know your date is offically booked with us. Please send your wedding day details through our contact page. We aim to respond to our clients within 24-48 hours. If you do not hear back from us, please give us a call at 845-546-7899.
- I have a large group, will you need to bring an assistant?
If there are 9 or more ladies receiving makeup + hair services, an assistant will be present to help prep faces, making sure our time line runs smoothly. There is no bridal party too big or too small for us to work with.
- How should I prepare for my trial?
When you come to the trial, bring photos of makeup + hair styles you like. Have fun + start pinning on Pinterest to find an inspiration look you would like to build off of. Bringing photos with you will open the conversation between us, so we can understand what makeup + hair look you are trying to achieve on your wedding day.
Your also going to want to bring a lip color you often wear with you the day of your trial, that way we can get a good sense of what colors you’re comfortable wearing. After our trial run, we will figure out which color you like best and we will recommend you buy that color we used, for the day of your wedding so you can reapply all night.
The day of your trial your also going to want to wear a ivory or white top, so we can see how the makeup + hair would look against the color of your dress.
Feel free to bring any hair peices and your veil.
With your smartphone, we can take before/after photos and we can see how your finished makeup look photographs
A trial with us is typically 1.5 hour, that way we have enough time to consult, figure out and apply the perfect look for you, come up with a good skincare routine for you, as well as go over details for the day of the wedding.
The most important thing about your makeup trial is to sit back and have fun!
- Should I get lashes?
We always recommend lashes. They photograph great and complete the eye makeup look. These are not lash extensions, these are false lashes. These come in strips, halfsies, and individuals. Together we will decide which lash style will fit your look best. Lashes are reusable, and easy to remove!
- What is Traditional Makeup?
Traditional makeup is most commonly applied with the usage of professional makeup brushes along with other tools like the beauty blender. The foundation can range from multiple mediums such as liquids (which can vary in coverage from light to full), creams, and powders. Being there are more options in the choice of foundation that can be used with a traditional makeup application as opposed to airbrush makeup, the outcome of the skin’s finish will depend most on the actual consistency of the foundation chosen by the makeup artist.
- I dont wear makeup, which option should I choose?
Airbrush is lightweight however if you decide you want to do traditional makeup, we can use tinted moisturizers and lightweight, sheer foundation with our beauty blenders to also create a natural look that feels light on the skin.
- I am doing a first look, will I need to touch up during the day?
Your hair + makeup is applied to last all day. A setting spray will be sprayed to assure your makeup is long lasting. You will need to touch up lips. After all the eating, drinking, talking, and kissing, you will need to reapply your lip stick. We will recommend a color for you to buy during your trial run, so on the wedding day, your lipstick will be with you. Everything else will stay in place through out the evening.
- How much time should I allow in my schedule for makeup applications?
Bridal makeup takes 40-45 minutes. Bridesmaids/mothers/Any one else receiving services can take 25-35 minutes depending on if they decide to get lashes or not.
