Frequently Asked Questions

AnnimationsMkUp Booking Terms

The following terms are applied to every booking, and supersede any of the following terms if differing from these Covid-related terms:

1) To book, we take 20% of your booking total upfront via debit or credit with a signed contract. We do not accept e-transfers. This initial retainer is non-refundable.

2) The remaining balance is due 1 week before the wedding, giving couples a considerable amount of time to cancel or postpone due to Covid without losing the larger portion of their investment. This also gives couples more time to change details if restrictions lift or increase near to their Day Of, such as party size/services. Changes could reduce or increase your remaining total accordingly. Any reductions in services or party size after the final balance is paid is non-refundable under any circumstance.

Please be advised we do not do multiple split payments. There is a retainer and a final balance payment only. Attempts at paying several unauthorized payments towards your booking can result in fees. This also applies to paying your balance too far in advance. Please complete your final payment on the due date of 7 days prior to the wedding day and no more than a week earlier. 

3) If needing to postpone due to Covid, there are no penalties or fees to do so, and also there are no restrictions on how far in the future you can postpone to.

Weddings booked 30 days or less to the Day Of require the entire balance to be paid in order to secure the booking.

What brands of skin, make up/hair products and tools do you use?

Depending on the skin's needs (hydration, anti-aging, oil-control, etc.) we select appropriate skin care from brands like Sonia Rosseli, Embryolisse, Charlotte Tilbury and Laneige.

Since the majority of my work is bridal and/or will be photographed, I exclusively use Danessa Myricks, Temptu, or Make Up Forever foundations for my clients. My artists that are assigned to weddings will also use Make Up Forever, MAC, Bobbi Brown or Huda Beauty. In terms of other types of make up, ranging from eyes to cheeks and lips, we carry a range of brands which by majority are MAC, NARS, Bobbi Brown, Morphe, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Ben Nye and Senna. Brushes are mostly MAC and Bdellium.

As for hair, we mostly use Bumble and Bumble, MoroccanOil, Colour WOW, Drybar, T3, Babyliss, Schwarzkopf, and Avanti products and tools. 

How long does hair and/or make up take?

This really depends most on the condition of the client's skin as well as what they are looking for as a final result. More intricate make-up requires more time for example, but also to create a soft and natural look on a skin that needs a considerable amount of correction to achieve a smooth and uniform finish and colour also requires more time. The same goes for hair styles that are very ornate or that require accessories like extensions. The average make up application or hair style for an adult or teenager will take 30-45 minutes per service, while a service for a child will typically take about 30 minutes in total depending on the length of hair, style requested and being able to complete the service without interruptions (which are normal since most kids don't like strangers or to sit still for a long time)
