My Most Asked Bridal Beauty Questions
What are the most common types of jobs you offer clients?
Most of the time I do Bridal makeup, Head shots, and Makeup Lessons
What advice do you have for a bride looking to hire a makeup artist for their wedding day?
Do your research. Book a trial session. Ask questions about touch-up services, touch up kits, do they have a website? Do you and the artist have similar tastes in makeup? Call the artist and ask a lot of questions. Do you like her personality? Will she be fun to have around on your special day? Check online reviews.
Why does your work stand out from other makeup artists?
I love the face. It’s possible to achieve a smooth, clean, glamorous makeup look for everyone. I love to enhance my clients best features.
I also have over 10 years of experience working in production, in salons, and with celebrities. Experience counts!!
I often get calls from frantic brides that their makeup artist cancelled on them the day before their wedding or is going on vacation that month. I make sure my brides come first. It’s my client’s most important day. They can count on me to always be there.
What do you like most about your job?
Building relationships with my clients. I have worked with the same people for years. That’s because I love to listen to what my clients are looking for. What schedule they have so I am on their agenda. Also hearing about their lives an be exciting too. Making new friends is a great perk of the job.
How did you decide to become a makeup artist?
I’ve always loved skincare and makeup since I was a child. I would collect products and treat them like treasures. One day I was in between college and wasn’t very happy. My cousin, Sarah recommended beauty school. I went to check out Brown Aveda Institute in Mentor, OH and didn’t look back.
Do you do some sort of continuing education to keep up with latest developments and trends?
Yes I take lessons every once in a while at a makeup school In Los Angeles. Most of the time it’s about keeping up with the trends and practicing them on a model. I also take art classes every month. It’s my way of keeping up with color theory and some therapy.
What kind of products do you use on clients?
For skin care it’s always Arbonne. I believe in Vegan organic products. They are sustainable and up to European standards. No harsh chemicals and they smell amazing.
Cosmetics I have everything from Bobbi Brown to Makeup Forever. I have the perfect products to suit anyone’s skin type, textures, or needs.
What are your operating hours?
Anytime. Day or Night. I have clients that sometimes need meet at 3 am and some that have events late at night. I also travel with clients so whatever their schedule is for their trip.
Do you offer private makeup lessons if I want to do my own makeup for my wedding?
Yes I offer a range of makeup lessons. I offer a bridal class. Sometimes the Bride has a smaller beauty budget. There is no reason she can’t have a professional application on her special day. This class is also great for destination weddings when I am not able to travel with the bride.
What question do you get most from your clients and what is the answer?
Do I travel with to clients for services? Yes!!!!
