Luxury Bridal Makeup Artistry throughout Los Angeles and Southern California

you got questions, i got answers.

Let’s get the details sorted out so we can focus on the glam! I want to focus on you so you can focus on enjoying yourself! It is a lot to read, but I want to be super clear so you know what to expect and what’s included.

How can I book a regular makeup appointment?
Click here!

How far in advance should I book? Are there seasons that are in high demand?
I suggest booking makeup services 6-12 months in advance. This is Southern California- it is always wedding season! The months in my calendar that typically book up first are April through November. So don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

When should I book my Bridal Trial?
Whenever you want! There is no right answer. You can book it tomorrow! I think it is a great idea to coordinate your appointment with a special occasion or photos! After all, you are going to look and feel like a million bucks!

If you are planning to wait to book your trial please consider placing your deposit. A deposit and signed contract are required to hold your date and secure my services.

Do you offer airbrush?
Nope. I dig traditional makeup way more! Airbrush makeup does not guarantee longevity. It is simply another way to apply your makeup. 

What makeup do you use?
I have spent over a decade experimenting with so many amazing brands. You will find products in my kit that range from luxury high end to some killer drug store products! I don’t discriminate.

Here are some of my favorite brands to name a few: Charlotte Tilbury, Tarte Cosmetics, Too Faced, Maybelline, NARS, Graftobian, Kevyn Aucoin, Cover FX, Makeup Forever, Laura Mercier, RCMA, Becca, Hourglass, MAC, NYX, Makeupgeek, Colourpop, Ben Nye, Urban Decay, and Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Do you offer Hair Styling?
No, but shoot me a message and I’ll send over my referrals for amazing Hair Artists in the area! 

You’re based in Redondo Beach. Do you travel?
Absolutely! I am available to travel throughout Southern California! My Bridal Packages include 20 miles of travel.

I have a big bridal party. Can you accommodate everyone?
Maybe. This will depend on the the size of your party and the time everyone needs to be ready. If you’d like to inquire about your party please send me a message!

How early do we need to start makeup to be ready?
Great question! I won’t know until we chat about your wedding day timeline.

You will hear from me one month before your wedding date to get an idea of your schedule. I also pride myself on being accessible and incredibly responsive to my clients. If you want to chat about your schedule please don’t hesitate to call or message me.

I will typically ask you the following: Are you doing a First Look, if so, what time? What time will your photographer arrive? And what time would you like Makeup Services to be completed? I will then create a schedule that will ensure everything runs smoothly and on time!

You will receive a beautifully designed excel sheet to plug in the names of your party members. We can always make adjustments! I’ll send as many excel sheets as you wish :)

I never wear makeup. I want a super natural look for my wedding day. Are you the right artist for me?
Short answer: Yes!

My artistry is very versatile and my goal is to simply illuminate your beauty and work with your natural style. I describe my work as ‘natural glam’ and my goal is to always make you feel comfortable… and gorgeous :)

Are lashes included?
Absolutely! Eyelashes are included in my rates. I always have at least a DOZEN styles of lashes in my kit as well as individual custom lashes to suit all of my brides and their requested styles.

How does payment work?
I use Square to send invoices for your deposit and final balance. Don’t worry, you don’t need a Square account, you can use any card to complete payment. The final balance reflects all services for your booking and is due 7 days prior to your event date.

Do you stay for touch ups?
Touch Ups are available for $100.00 per hour and the clock starts as soon as makeup is completed for the last person on the schedule (this will be noted on the final excel schedule sent to you). You must request for touch ups before completing your final payment.

Your makeup will seriously last all day though and having me there for touch ups, I find, is not necessary.

Just remember:

  • Tap your tears

  • Don’t swipe

  • Have your favorite lipstick and lipgloss with you
    (I can let you know what we’ve used to create your Bridal Look and what products to get after your trial)

What if my wedding date changes, or I cancel?
As a wedding industry professional in high demand, I can’t guarantee that I will be able to accommodate any changes. For this reason, all deposits and payments are nonrefundable and nontransferable. I am, however, the furthest thing from a cold hearted robot- so if something comes up, just text me and I will do my best to work with you :)

How can I book you?!
Click here! I will reply ASAP with my availability and we can move forward from there :)

Are there any additional fees I should be aware of?
Please read my contract thoroughly before signing it! What if I asked you to name your first born child Patricia?!
(There are worse things)

Okay, but seriously, there are no hidden fees or small print on my contract, but you do have to read it. The clauses mentioned in my contract include:

  • Retainer (Booking & On Location Fee)

  • Early Start Fee

  • Touch Up Fee

  • Assistant Fee

  • Mileage and Travel

  • Accommodation Costs and Parking
