Frequently asked questions
I don't usually wear much makeup and prefer a very natural look. Why do I need a make up artist? Will I still look like "myself?
I totally understand you! But I can do wonders in improving your skin tone/texture, giving your eyes just enough definition in photos, and giving you a beautiful glow! Most of my clients state how good their skin feels after a makeup application, almost as if there is no makeup on it at all. I will never make you look cakey, clownlike or tasteless! Just yourself, only better!
Do you offer a la carte services? What if I just want my eyes/lips/foundation done?
No, unfortunately I do not offer a la carte services. A key part to my technique in makeup applications, is taking into account your ENTIRE face, and ALL of your features to make them harmonious and work together.
What is included in a makeup application, and how long does it take?
A makeup application takes around 35-45 min (brides around 50-60 min) and it includes:
1. A consultation about your desired look.
2. Customized skincare application and priming of the face .
3. Eyebrow reshaping and filling (if necessary) to best frame your eye
4. Airbrush or traditional makeup application.
5. Sculpting the facial structures by highlighting and contouring to bring out your best features
6. Eye makeup application based on your eye shape.
7. Eyelash application selected for your eye shape and desired effect
8. Lip and cheek color
9.Facial Setting spray
Note: order of steps might vary.

How much does it cost to hire you as my professional makeup artist?
The price of my services depends on several things including the number of people. My pricing is very competitive and I would love to hear more about your needs.
How do I secure you for my wedding date?
Please note that inquiring about a certain date does not guarantee you that date. I will need a completed and signed contract agreement from you, with a 20% deposit in order to book your date. Retainer fees apply to the Wedding Day balance. To be fair I book on a first come/first serve basis.
Can I book my wedding date without having a trial session first?
Absolutely! Often times brides secure their day first with a non–refundable deposit to hold their date.
Do you recommend a Bridal trial consultation?
Yes! Trial sessions are recommended before any big event. You will rest easy knowing your hair and makeup will look exactly as you had always envisioned. They are typically done 1-7 months before your BIG day. We can schedule whenever you are ready. Trials take place at my home studio located in Novi (only scheduled on weekdays)
How far in advance should I book you?
It’s never too early! Feel free to book as soon as possible. The sooner you book me, the more likely it is that I will have your date available. I generally book about 1 year in advance for the busiest months of May through October.
Do you come on location for my wedding?
Yes of course! Anytime and any place. I’m happy to do so!
Do you have travel fees?
Yes , Travel fees apply when your location is 25 miles or more from me ( zip code 48377 )
