what to expect with makeup artistry services

Bridal Preview Trial

A Consultation/ Bridal Preview Makeup Trial between the bride and Hollie, her makeup artist, is highly recommended prior to the wedding date. The purpose of a Bridal Preview Trial is for Hollie to create a customized Bridal Makeup look that will be duplicated on the brides wedding day. During a Bridal Preview Trial both parties will discuss the brides makeup preferences and desires as well as which products will be used to achieve the brides desired makeup result on her wedding day. The look will then be curated by Hollie. From then, the bride will have the ability to wear the makeup application for the duration of the day to consider which elements she likes and/or where she would like to see adjustments made. 

A Bridal Preview Trial also gives Hollie a chance to learn more about the bride and bridal party/family members. Both parties will discuss the potential use of false eyelashes, and if necessary, a skin care regime leading up to the wedding day. Wedding Day logistics will also be verified during this appointment. After the Bridal Preview Trial is complete, it is encouraged that the Bride provide feedback to Hollie in order to ensure her expectations were met.

Bridal Wedding Day Makeup Application

A Bridal Makeup Application requires a  50 minute time slot. This includes a quick run through of what was decided during the Bridal Preview Trial. If no Bridal Preview Trial was had, then a mini consultation will take place. Prior to the makeup application, it is required that the Bride have a freshly washed face with no makeup residue, her teeth brushed and, if applicable, contact lenses inserted. 

On-location only; 50 minutes in duration

Bridal Party/Family Member Makeup Application

Bridal Party/Family Members will have a mini consultation with Hollie and receive the same high quality products and application the bride does. Each Bridal Party/Family member will be able to discuss their individual preferences, comfort level and desired outcome. Each makeup application requires a 45 minute time slot. This includes a mini consultation with each client prior to their makeup application, in addition to resetting the work station between clients. Prior to the makeup application, it is required that each client have a freshly washed face with no makeup residue, their teeth brushed and, if applicable, contact lenses inserted. It is highly recommended that each client come with an inspirational makeup image for reference (ex. Pinterest, Instagram or in Bridal magazines) and a lipstick/gloss they can use for touch ups throughout the day.
