Why do I need a makeup artist for my wedding? Most brides, hopefully, only get married once. And it is one of the single most expensive days of your life. All eyes are on you and you want to look your best! Most photographers charge $2500 and up for their services. You wouldn't want to look back at your pictures and realize they didn't look as good as they could have been. These are the pictures you will have for the rest of your life and on your wall in your home! MUA's are trained and skilled for on camera and HD photography. So you look your best under intense lights, stress, and environment. 

Can you teach me how to do my own makeup for my wedding? Yes I can! I offer private lessons for $65 an hour.

How long does it take to have makeup done? For the bride I set aside 1 hour of time, just in case. Bridesmaids etc are about 1/2 hour. It's more then enough time but it gives leeway for touch ups and adjustments.

I don't have 4 people for you to do in order to travel. What are my other options? I DO travel for less than 4 people. It's just my rate for 4 to travel stays the same regardless. I do have a home studio in Folsom CA and accommodate one or more people if you want to save some money. Another option is to do a private lesson so that you can do your own makeup. Kate Middelton did it for her wedding!

Do you do airbrush? Yes! Airbrushing is essential especially if you live in high heat, humidity areas such as Sacramento, Ca. Airbrushing is very light, long lasting and you won't get shiny. A typical airbrushing application can last 12-24 hours.

Do you do hair styling? Yes! Currently I am working with Carrie B. Mac Hair who is amazing. I will take her along on my bigger bridal parties. Light hair styling is done by me. Since I do hire a hairstylist to come with me, I am not offering it as a seperate service right now.

Do you offer Gift Certificates? YES! Gift Certificates are great for the girl who has everything and deserves something special! And I am such a girly girl that I wrap each one really cute and often offer bonus fun stuff to include with your gift. Click here to see my blog post about this and some GC ideas!
