Bridal FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Do you offer airbrushing? 

Yes! I am certified by Temptu in Airbrushed Makeup for Bridal and for Events.

What is the difference between airbrush and traditional makeup?

Airbrushed makeup is applied through a spraying tool which allows for a very lightweight formula.  It is waterproof and leaves a flawless finish to the skin that photographs great.  Foundation, bronzer and highlight can all be airbrushed onto the skin.  It is typically a fast application and once applied, it will not require touch-ups throughout the night. Traditional makeup is applied with brushes, sponges, or fingers and can be very flexible to adjust.  Formulas vary depending on skin type and the foundation chosen to use.  Although traditional makeup can last long when primed and set, it does not have the same staying power as airbrush would. This does not mean traditional is not right for you! Every bride has their preference and I do not favor one over the other.  It is best to consult during the trial to see which is a better fit for your skin and desired look.

Why is a pre-wedding makeup trial important?

To ensure the perfect look for your wedding day, a trial session is strongly recommended. We will work together until you are 100% satisfied with your makeup look!  This is a great opportunity to give airbrush a try vs traditional makeup application. Trials are also recommended for mother of the bride, mother of the groom, maid of honor, or anyone else in the family!

When should I book my pre-wedding makeup trial?

Trials should be booked approximately one to three months in advance.

Can I do a makeup trial before I commit?

Of course! Please keep in mind I cannot hold your date until a bridal agreement is signed and a deposit is received.

Where will the trial be held?

I offer trials at my in home makeup studio in the Sag Harbor/Bridgehampton area, or I can come to you at your home or desired location. Please note a small travel fee may apply depending on where you are located.

How long will a trial take?

The length of the trial depends on how many looks you want to try and how many people are having a trial.   A typical trial for a bride is 90 minutes.  We can discuss different options for you!

How should I prepare for a trial?

At your home: Please have a table surface and a chair ready (the higher the chair, the better) with adequate lighting prior to our makeup session.  Natural lighting is preferred so near a window would be best.  If getting airbrushed, near a plug will also be necessary.

Outfit: It’s best to wear a color as close as possible to the color of your dress.

Face: Please have a clean face and eyes ready for makeup application.   If you have very dry skin, you can moisturize!

When should I book you for my wedding day?

It’s best to book as soon as possible!  Please see below what is required to book.   If my style is what you’re looking for, it’s best to book on the earlier side and then book a trial closer to the wedding date.  I tend to book out a year to 6 months in advance.

How do I book you for my wedding day?

In order to secure your date, a non-refundable deposit and signed contract is required.  The deposit will go towards your cost of services for the day of. After that, you can book your pre-wedding makeup trial at your convenience.

How long will makeup services take on the wedding day?

I require a minimum one hour with the bride. Bridesmaids will take approximately 40 minutes each.

What brands do you use in your kit?

I use an array of products and brands in my kit that fit every skin type and skin tone.  I offer airbrush by Temptu and carry brands such as Armani Beauty, Kevyn Aucoin, Tarte Cosmetics, Guerlain,  RMS,  Makeup Forever, Charlotte Tilbury, Benefit, Hourglass Cosmetics, Anastasia Beverly Hills and more.

Do you work with other Makeup Artists or Hairstylists?

I am an independent Makeup Artist however I have a network of artists and stylists that I work with often.  We can accommodate very large bridal parties together!

What form of payment do you accept?

Cash, Venmo, Check (must be mailed in advance)
