FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I book with you?
Please fill out the contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org with details about your event such as the; date, ready time, number & type of services required and location.
Once we have finalized details of your booking, a 40% deposit in Canadian dollars must be paid in order to confirm date of booking. If more than one service is being provided, half (20%) of the deposit will go towards each service. i.e. 20% for makeup and 20% for hair. If client chooses to cancel or change any particular service for any reason, the deposit for that service will be forfeited and non-refundable. After a deposit is sent, a contract must be signed. The contract entails most of the information found on my website in addition to any other important information specific to the booking. I do not take bookings without a deposit and contract.
What constitutes as a Bridal booking/event?
Wedding ceremony and Reception fall under a bridal booking.
How long is a typical bridal booking?
Bridal Makeup takes up to 2 hours to complete on average depending on the style/look. Also, give yourself time for dressing and getting ready. Keep this in mind when deciding on a start time.
What does a Bridal Trial include?
A bridal trial includes a full makeup application in which we talk about the brides personal taste and vision for her big day. I advise clients to bring pictures of looks that they are inspired by and pictures of their bridal outfit if they have already chosen one. I also spend some time going over skincare, lifestyle, and personality, to ensure the look we decide upon reflects the client perfectly.
It is advised that clients come to a bridal trial with no makeup on their face as this allows for a proper examination. A trial is just as much work as the actual wedding day makeup application so please be mindful that it can take anywhere from 1.5 hour to 2 hours. Again, the time and price may vary based on what has been discussed with the client prior to the trial.
SKIN & PRODUCTS
What if I have sensitive skin?
If you have sensitive skin, it is important that we discuss this before your appointment. I have products that cater to all skin types in my kit, however, on very rare occasions I advise clients to bring their own complexion products (foundation & powder) if they are highly concerned about reacting to products. Given we use the client's products, I cannot promise on the longevity and performance of the makeup.
Moreover, I use proper techniques and processes for ensuring that all the items in my kit are perfectly cleaned and sanitized. I never dip directly into liquid and cream products and I always use disposable applicators, alcohol, a spatula and a blank palette to work off of. I also use a cosmetic sanitizer specifically designed for powder products.
