How long have you been doing makeup?
I have been doing makeup for over 9 years now!
How did you get started?
I always had an interest in makeup. I would do makeup for a lot of my friends in high school for dances and always wanted a job working in the industry! I started working at MAC when I was 19 and worked there for a little over 3 years. I finished my business degree at UWF and immediately went back to school for my license so that I could do makeup outside of the retail setting. I absolutely love being able to combine my business degree with my license to do what I love!
Where do you get most of your clients?
90% of my clients are from word of mouth. Most of my brides are referred from my past brides or members of their bridal parties. I can't tell you how many times I have worked a wedding and ended up doing a bridesmaid's makeup for her own wedding day! It's truly the greatest compliment :)
How do I book you?
Fill out the contact form here and I will send you an itemized price quote if I have your date available (or my referral list if I am already booked). Once we finalize all of the numbers, I will send you a contract to sign online and an invoice for your reservation retainer. The reservation retainer is 50% of your total and will be deducted from your final balance.
How far in advance do I need to book you?
Booking the makeup artist for your wedding should be one of the first things you do after setting your wedding date and booking your venue! With that being said, brides book me anywhere between 3 months to a year and half from their wedding date. I do stay booked consistently throughout the year, but the months I typically receive the most inquiries for are March-May and September-November.
Can I have a trial run with you prior to booking?
Yes! You can schedule a trial with me for a separate fee. I do include a trial run in my bridal package, so if you end up booking me after your trial, I would deduct the fee from your total. Please note that booking a trial with me does not reserve your wedding date.
How much time should I allow for makeup?
I like to allow an hour per person. This gives us a little wiggle room in case anything runs behind schedule!
Do you work on location?
Absolutely! I come to wherever you are getting ready.
Do you stay for touch ups?
I do check everyone's makeup before I leave in case any touch ups are needed. My bridal package also includes a small touch up kit for the bride! If you would like for me to stay and do touch ups throughout the night, I do have the option of hiring me at an hourly rate (this must be paid and agreed upon prior to the wedding day).
Please feel free to contact me with any other questions you may have!
