FAQ - Makeup
How much time should I set aside for a makeup application?
I allow an hour - depending on your makeup look, sometimes we can finish much earlier, but I 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 applications.
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 me know. My makeup kit is suited to sensitive skin types and caters to most allergies, but it’s a great idea to let me know just in case.
I also strongly recommend a trial to be on the safe side.
Do I need to provide my own foundation?
No – for health and safety reasons, I cannot accept clients’ own makeup products. I supply absolutely everything for your makeup application, and I sell powders and lipsticks for any touch ups.
Will my makeup last?
I take every measure with skin preparation, product application and finishing, to ensure your makeup lasts as long as it possibly can. I cannot guarantee against environmental factors etc, but with 8+ years in the bridal industry, I like to think I'm an expert at long-wearing makeup.
Do you offer hair and makeup packages?
I offer basic hairstyling in conjunction with makeup, but this is subject to limited availability.
Should I get my makeup done before or after hair?
It doesn’t matter at all. I'll carefully pin your hair out of the way if you've had it done beforehand, or if you're having hair done after makeup, just ask your hairstylist to be careful if they're washing your hair.
How long should I allow for hair and makeup?
I 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 - I don't want you feeling rushed or running late!
How can I get in touch with you?
I am so insanely lucky to be entrusted with a LOT of weddings and clients' beauty needs, and this means that while my brides and clients are receiving my undivided attention (just as you will during any time we have together), my phone will be on silent.
In some instances, I may be able to shoot you a quick text message if I'm unable to take your call, and this is often a quicker way for me to communicate with you.
I've also compiled HEAPS of info online to answer all your questions, and my website is designed to be able to take care of you in just about any situation, so the website should definitely be your first point of reference - in most cases if I'm in with a client, I'll direct you to the website anyway.
If you can't find answers online, you can request a callback or book a time to come in for a chat here.
