FAQ - Formals


Should I get a makeup trial for my formal?

Definitely! If you’ve got a makeup idea in mind, we need to make sure that it suits
you and you feel comfortable with it. What looks amazing on Instagram may not look amazing in person.

I want to add a spray tan to my makeup package,
how many days beforehand should I book in for? 

We recommend spray tanning 2 days before your formal. If you are new to spray tanning, we also suggest trialling it first (again, 2 days before your makeup trial).

Do I need to pay a deposit?

A deposit will be taken when you book online, and we reserve the right to charge up to the full amount of your makeup booking in the event of a cancellation or no-show.

What's the best way to get in touch with Mirror Mirror?

We are very lucky to be entrusted with a LOT of weddings and clients' beauty needs, and this means that while our brides and clients are receiving our undivided attention, our phones are diverted to a receptionist service. 

Our lovely receptionists are real people based here in sunny Queensland, and will take a message that comes straight through to us. They're not employed in our business though, so please be patient if they're unable to answer your seemingly simple questions.

Rather than leave the room from our brides and clients to call you back, sometimes the opportunity arises in between clients where we can quickly send a text message or email back to you so that you still receive a quick response from us. 

We also have lots of info online to help you out - our FAQ pages, online booking system and our mobile makeup quote form should help you, but if you have any wild questions that can't be answered anywhere on our website, please get in touch. 

We are fortunate enough to have fabulous technology and online systems that allow us to keep costs down for you, but if it's some face-to-face time you need, you can book a complimentary consultation here.
