FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

BEFORE BOOKING YOUR APPOINTMENT, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING
What brand of makeup do you use?

I use MAC makeup products. I have a few other products from Makeup Forever, Ben Nye and Kryolan and Red Cherry which I source from professional industry distributors.

How early in advance should I book you for my wedding?

Some seasons are busier than others, and it’s best to contact me as soon as you know you’re interested. Don’t hesitate to check if your date is available – you never know! Make sure you include important information, such as your prep location, number of services needed, ceremony time, and any special requests. If you need referrals to mobile hairstylists, I would be happy to help you.

What are your rates?

All of my services and rates can be found on this website. But let’s start with checking if your date is available, and then we can go over all the details!

I am not sure what makeup look I want on my special day. Can you help?

Yes. It is suggested you begin looking through magazines and find several make-up photos that you like. During your Bridal Preview Trial, together you and I will create a look based on what you like and what you hope to achieve. I will also help you identify and accentuate your most flattering features to reveal your own natural beauty.

Can you style the whole wedding party?

Privé Beauty Lounge loves to offer services to the whole wedding party – moms and other family, too! It’s important for everyone to look and feel their best on this special day. I find that brides LOVE having a unified look for pictures. Please include everyone interested when you book your day so I can plan accordingly and allow enough time.

How long will the makeup last?

Privé Beauty Lounge only uses the finest high quality makeup products and brushes. The makeup application is designed to last throughout your entire wedding day.  I have been told that the makeup has stayed on until the next day! Not something I recommended you do, but it has been done.

Why do I need a High-End Professional Makeup Artist vs an untrained artist vs DIY

Here are a few of the reasons why you should consider a High-End Professional Makeup Artist for your wedding day:

  • You have spent so much money on your dress, shoes, jewellery, reception hall. Why would you want to skimp out on your face?
  • You are unsure what colours to use and how best to apply make-up for the photography
  • You want the make-up to last all day
  • You would be too nervous on the morning of the wedding to apply your own makeup
  • You want be pampered on your wedding day
  • You want your wedding pictures to look flawless
  • This is your wedding day and you want to look your absolute best
Are lashes extra?

Lashes are included in the makeup application. There is no discount if you decide to forgo them.

Can we bring our own lashes and have the artist put them on?

Yes.

Here are Some Reasons to Consider Hiring a Professional for Your Big Day!

 

A Professional Makeup Artist (MUA) knows all too well that applying makeup that will be photographed is MUCH different than applying makeup for day-to-day wear – you don’t want to look washed out

A professional not only takes into consideration your skin tone, hair and eye color, but also your dress, bridesmaids dresses and lighting

Professional Makeup Artists use professional products that are designed to last for hours under hot lights and in all weather conditions

Professionals know you need everyone in the bridal party to stay with your colour schemes, so your photos come out stunning! Mixed and matched makeup looks strange together in photos, so it is important to have all the bridal party in the same or similar colour schemes

Professional Makeup Artists makes a bride feel pampered on their special day with someone who’s attention is squarely on them and their needs

Most importantly you should look like you, but more enhanced – that means you need more makeup than you normally wear so it will show up on camera

Professional Makeup Artists have the ability to travel to your location – this saves you the time, trouble and stress of getting to a salon

Professional Makeup Artists can also stay with you throughout your wedding day to be available for any touch ups for an additional fee

 

Your Wedding Day is THE most photographed day of your life and you don’t want to chance looking Shiny or Blotchy!  So Brides-to-be, hiring a Professional Makeup Artist will be a true asset. Your photographs and video will be a constant reminder of money well spent!
