How much time should I set aside for a signature makeup application?
Our makeups typically take 45 minutes, but we recommend leaving an hour free just to be on the safe side.
Are false lashes included with my makeup?
What should I do if I have a makeup related allergy or sensitive skin?
Do I need to bring my own foundation?
Will my makeup last?
Do you offer hair and makeup packages?
Should I get my makeup done before or after hair?
How long should I allow for hair and makeup?
We recommend allowing 1 hour for each. If you're having your hair done somewhere else, allow an hour for your hair, and 30 minutes to travel between your hair and makeup locations and find a car park - we don't want you feeling rushed or running late!
I’m getting a tan for my wedding,
how many days before my big day should I book in for?
Are MM artists available for travel? If so, what areas do you service?
How long does each makeup take on the day?
I feel confident about my wedding makeup, therefore is a trial necessary?
When should I have a trial?
Do you only look after the bride and bridesmaids?
Nope! We can look after your bridal party and any extras onsite, while we send a separate makeup artist elsewhere to look after any other family members or guests who you may not want getting ready with you onsite.
Is there a limit to how many makeups we can do for a bridal party?
Nope! We have a team of artists who can look after your bridal party, family and wedding guests, so it all comes down to what time your ceremony is and how many of our artists are available!
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Do we really need to be finished makeup an hour and a half before leaving for the ceremony?
What happens if we finish makeup earlier than scheduled?
You'll have an amazingly relaxed day with some extra time to take it all in. Our timings are a guide only, and sometimes we do run ahead of schedule.
I only want very natural makeup. How much does this cost?
None of my bridesmaids want to go first for makeup as they are worried their makeup won't last. What should we do?
We totally understand this, which is why we do everyone's makeup in full at the start of the day (aside from lipstick) then at the end we get everybody back through for touch ups and lipstick.
I love wearing a bright lip - should I tone it down for the wedding?
No way! We believe in still feeling like yourself on your wedding day, and if wearing a bright lip is standard for you, rock it on your wedding day too!
I don't know anything about makeup - how do I decide on a look for myself and my bridesmaids?
That's what we are here for, and just quietly, we LOVE when we get to have a say in the makeup looks. It allows us to help you pick looks that really suit each person and make their best features stand out. We can tailor a look not only to each person, but to their dress, the flowers, their personal preference... we've got your back.
My photographer has told me not to have a spray tan, but I'd rather die than be without a tan on my wedding day - what should I do?
We recommend a super duper natural tan (don't worry - you'll still look tanned). We consider ourselves experts at wedding tans, so we'll help you pick a shade that will blend amazingly with your skin, so your photographer doesn't have to spend 400 extra hours editing your tan. Our range of tans have different bases - ash, mocha and violet - so there's no chance you'll be throwing off orange oompa-loompa vibes.
Can we ask you for guidance on other wedding-related things, aside from makeup, tans and beauty?
Please do! We have been in the wedding industry in Toowoomba for almost 8 years, so we've seen a lot. We can help you with any questions you have, no matter how obscure they are!

What tanning products does MM use?
We use Naked Tan and Bella Bronze tanning products. The choice is yours! If you are unsure which is best for you, our tanning experts will be able to recommend the best fit for you.
How long do MM tans typically last for?
How long do I have to leave my tan on before rinsing?
How does a tan work?
I've never tanned before - will I go orange?
Do I have to get naked?
Nope - you can wear as much or as little as you like - whether that's briefs, a g-string, a strapless bra, nipple covers, it's totally up to you. Bear in mind, whatever you wear for your tan will leave tan lines.
How do I prepare for a tan?
In the week leading up to your tan, moisturise like a crazy person! 24 hours beforehand, give your skin a good, gentle exfoliation with a scrub and/or exfoliating gloves. On the day, please come to your tan free of any products that will create a barrier between the tan and your skin - deodorant, perfume, moisturiser and makeup all create barriers.
What do I do after my tan?
Pop on some loose, cotton clothing, stay cool and avoid moisture - sweating, hand washing and playing in the rain are off the cards! When it's time to rinse off, stand under a warm shower and rinse (no soaps or scrubbing) until the water runs clear. Avoid showering and wearing tight clothing for the next 24 hours while your tan develops.
Is my tan instant?
You may see some colour start to develop as soon as you wash your tan off, but in most cases, you'll be back to your normal skin tone. Then, over the next 24 hours, the colour will continue to develop.
Can I go swimming with a spray tan?
Swimming at the beach or in a swimming pool may strip your tan, as salt water and chlorine can remove the top layer of your skin. If you're going to be swimming, we recommend using the Naked Tan Goddess Gradual Tan moisturiser at night after you've showered, to maintain your glow.
How long does a MM lash lift last for?
Typically around 12 weeks, but this depends on your own personal lash cycle (i.e. how long your lashes take to grow, fall out and regenerate).
Are lash lifts painful?
Nope! A lot of our lash lift clients fall asleep during the process. No product comes into contact with your eyes or the delicate skin of your waterline, so there's no stinging or redness at the end of your treatment.
Will a lash lift damage my eyelashes?
A lash lift can be a little drying on the lashes, but it does not affect the growth cycle like other lash enhancement treatments. We provide you with a take-home keratin treatment to keep your lashes nourished and healthy.
Should I get lash extensions for my formal or wedding?
This is completely up to you. We generally advise against it as we don't love the end result of lash extensions - they often make the eyes look droopy, undoing all our makeup work! Depending on the quality of the extensions, it can also be difficult to clean any makeup off them at the end, making the lashes look less black and a little dull.
