Frequently Asked Questions

What forms of payment do you accept?

I prefer cash payments. 

I also accept checks, debit and credit cards, Venmo, Cash app, and PayPal.

Do you require a deposit?

Yes, I do require a deposit for all makeup appointments. 

This deposit is non-refundable and must be paid in advance in order to reserve your date and time. This amount will be applied towards your total due.

Do you have a contract?

Yes, I have a Wedding Makeup Contract. 

This contract must be completed and returned via email in order to book your wedding date.

Do you do hair too?

If you'd like your hair to be straightened or curled, then I'm your girl! If you're looking for a fancy braid or an intricate up-do, then I'll refer you to a talented hair stylist. 

I can provide you with a list of girls that I love and work with often. You'll need to contact them directly regarding their pricing and availability.

Can you accommodate a large wedding party?

Absolutely! Once you have a final count of how many women would like their makeup done, I will create a timeline based on you and your photographer's needs. 

If I cannot fit all appointments into my schedule, then I will bring a second makeup artist with me to ensure every look is completed in a timely manner.

What kinds of products do you use?

My makeup kit contains a variety of brands including Anastasia Beverly Hills, Becca, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Buxom, Chanel, Dose of Colors, Hourglass, Inglot, Jeffree Star Cosmetics, Kylie Cosmetics, Lorac, Mac, Make Up For Ever, Makeup Geek, Marc Jacobs, Morphe, Nars, Smashbox, Stila, Tarte, Too Faced, Urban Decay, YSL... 

The list goes on and on!

When should I do my makeup trial?

I definitely recommend a makeup trial for all brides, but when you do it is completely up to you! 

Most brides choose to schedule their trial for their engagement photos, bridal shower, or bachelorette party.

Do you airbrush?

Yes, I almost always airbrush my clients but I have traditional foundation as well. 

Both types of foundation have pros and cons. We can discuss which suits you best at your makeup trial.

Will my lipstick stay on all day?

Some lip products are long-lasting, but most do not stay on all day. Between eating, drinking, talking, and kissing, your lip color will likely wear off. I suggest having a lipstick or lip gloss handy to reapply. 

Please let me know in advance if you'd like to purchase products from me so I can have unopened options available.

Do you charge a travel fee?

I do not charge a travel fee as long as your location is within the greater Phoenix area (Scottsdale, Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Glendale, etc).

A travel fee will apply if your location exceeds 30 miles from Central Phoenix (Sedona, Flagstaff, Tucson, Prescott, Florence, and beyond).

Do you require a minimum to travel?

Yes, I do require a minimum of $100 for appointments in your home, hotel, or venue. 

If you prefer (and you are comfortable with stairs and dogs), then you are welcome to come to me. I am located in Central Phoenix, by the Biltmore Mall. 

How long have you been doing makeup?

My first wedding was in February of 2008 so I can officially say it's been a decade!

I quit my job in August of 2013 to pursue makeup artistry full time. It was scary transition at the time, but now I wish I had taken the leap sooner.

Time flies when you're having fun!
