Frequently Asked Questions

BRIDAL MAKEUP FAQ's

Q: What products do you use?

A: We use a variety of quality products that include, but not limited to: MAC Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills, MUFE, Temptu, Sonia Roselli, Graftobian, Bobbi Brown, and many other quality brands.  During the bridal makeup trial, we will determine which products are best for your skin type and desired makeup look.


Q: Can you replicate a makeup look I found in a magazine or on the internet?

A: We always ask for inspiration images to help us visualize your dream look. We ask to see: images you love, images you do not like, and images of you wearing special event makeup.  This helps us better understand your vision and level of makeup comfort.  

TIP: Its best to identify images of models with facial features similar to your own.  Models with the same bone structure, skin color, eye shape, and hair color are ideal so that the finished look is as close to what you envisioned.


Q: Do you offer bridal makeup trials?

A: Yes!  We strongly encourage brides to have a bridal makeup trial before committing to a Wedding Day Service Contract.  This allows an opportunity to discuss the ideal look, any skin concerns, and see the finished look to ensure it is in alignment with your wedding day vision.


Q: Can I schedule more than one bridal makeup trial?

A: Absolutely! It is not uncommon for brides to schedule an additional session after the initial bridal makeup trial.  We encourage brides to try different bridal makeup looks before the wedding day. 


Q: Where are bridal makeup trials held? 

A: Bridal makeup trials are held at our private makeup studio located in Hanover, MD 21076 (near Arundel Mills).  Should you wish to schedule a bridal makeup trial at your location of choice, we can accommodate your request for an additional travel fee.


Q: Do members of my wedding party need to schedule a makeup trial?

A: No! Makeup trials are optional for wedding party members.  However, if someone in the wedding party has makeup concerns or is unsure about wearing makeup, we highly suggest they contact us to schedule an appointment because we want everyone to feel gorgeous.

Q: Will you travel to more than one (1) makeup service location on the day of the wedding?

A: Absolutely! We can accommodate multiple service locations, however, relocating the makeup service location will incur a relocation fee and additional travel cost.  We recommend one (1) service location to minimize any potential impact on the wedding day timeline, but we will gladly accommodate.  


Q: Will you provide makeup for only the bride?

A: Yes! If unable to meet the booking minimum, the service rate will be $270.


Q: Can I hire you to do only the wedding party and not the bride?

Q: How long does a makeup application take?
