How do I secure + book you for my wedding day?
I cant wait to be a part of your wedding day! Fill out the contact form in the info section. A signed contract and retainer is required to book your wedding date. Your retainer is the same price as the package you choose for your wedding makeup. All other members of the party can pay on the day of with cash or card. To make the process faster, send over all the info you have about your wedding (i.e. Time you need to be ready by, how many people need services, the location, etc.). I recommend to book anywhere from 6-15 months before your date. Inquire early, especially if your wedding is in high season between April-November!
What is the difference between airbrush and traditional foundation?
Airbrush and traditional are able to get the same effect. Airbrush is just a different application method for putting on foundation. I can apply layers which build up coverage on the skin with both methods. In my experience, airbrush lasts longer than traditional, especially if you have more oily skin. I use the Temptu Hydralock formula for airbrush which has a 16 hour wear. I love to do both traditional and airbrush, so in the end it comes down to what your skin needs and what you like!
Do you bring more artists or assistants with you?
Yes! If the bridal party is larger than a certain amount of people in a certain amount of time, I am able to bring one or more artists with me who have the same style of applying makeup as I do.
Can you come to the venue/hotel/home or any Destination wedding?
Yes! I am available with no travel fee anywhere within 25 miles of Philadelphia (Center city). Travel fees apply to locations outside of 25 miles of Philadelphia. I am available and would love to be your makeup artist for any destination weddings and elopements. Contact for further information about booking a destination makeup artist.
What makeup brands do you use?
I use only the highest quality, hypoallergenic, waterproof, professional grade makeup. I don't stick to one brand, because I believe in different products for different reasons. Some examples of the brands I use: Natasha Denona, Viseart, Kevin Aucoin, Becca, Fenty Beauty, Ben Nye, Graftobian, RCMA, Kett, Temptu, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Sonia Roselli, and Jouer.
How long does it take?
A makeup application takes approximately 45 minutes. I will create a schedule for the day for you and all of your party. Please provide me with the names of everyone getting services when you secure your date.
Can I schedule a trial?
Of course! Trials are held in my studio located in the Rittenhouse section of Philadelphia. Bring photos and inspiration of what bridal makeup you like best. Trials are held on weekdays, and occasional Sundays depending on wedding season (April-November). A trial is best scheduled 2-3 months prior to your wedding but can be done whenever you wish.
Is there anything I need to do to be ready for your services on the day of?
Please prepare an open space with a table and chair, preferably by natural light (a window). I do bring my own supplemental lighting, but I prefer to be in as much natural light as possible. Please inform me of any allergies you or the bridal party may have. Make sure everyone's face is clean, makeup free, and hydrated! Please have everyone provide photos of makeup looks they are inspired by!
