FAQ - Makeup


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?

Individual lashes (no strip lashes here!) come complimentary with all makeup

What should I do if I have a makeup related allergy or sensitive skin?

If you have an allergy and you’re aware of what it’s caused by, please let us know. Our kits are suited to sensitive skin types and cater to most allergies, but it’s a great idea to let us know just in case.
We strongly recommend a trial to be on the safe side.

Do I need to bring my own foundation?

No – for health and safety reasons, we cannot accept clients’ own makeup products. We supply absolutely everything for your makeup application, and we sell powders and lipsticks for any touch ups.

Will my makeup last?

We take every measure with skin preparation, product application and
finishing, to ensure your makeup lasts as long as it possibly can. With 7+ years in the bridal industry, we like to think we are experts at party-proof makeup.

Do you offer hair and makeup packages?

We are based inside Air Hair Studio, and you can book online with them at the same time that you book your makeup appointment.

Should I get my makeup done before or after hair? 

It doesn’t matter at all. If you have your hair done in-salon after makeup, we can touch up your makeup afterwards; or if you have your makeup done after hair, we’ll carefully pin your hair out the way, and your stylist will check the front of your hair before you leave the salon.

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!

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.
