What kind of makeup do you specialize in?
A large part of my business is providing wedding makeup services. However I have had experience in print and media as well.
What Cosmetic brands are in your makeup kit? Can you use my makeup?
I am happy to use whatever makeup is preferred whether it be for the whole look or just part of it. However my kit is fully stocked with a variety of brands to suit any client that sits in my makeup chair. Some of those brands include Cle de Peau, Tom Ford, Sisley, La Mer, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, Nars, Lancome, Laura Mercier and Bobbi Brown to name just a few!
Do you do hair also?
I specialize exclusively in makeup artistry but am pleased to refer you to some fabulous stylists!
How much time do I need to give you before booking an appointment?
Booking as far in advance as your schedule will permit is recommended especially for weekends in the summer and fall months when I book up months ahead of time. I’m flexible and accommodate as best as I can. Contact me directly to inquire about availability.
How long is a makeup application?
A makeup application is usually about 45 minutes. However it varies based on the desired look and occasion. Bridal trials take a little longer because we are discussing details and discovering the perfect look.
Do you do makeup lessons?
Absolutely! A makeup lesson is a great idea for a bride having a smaller destination wedding. I can help you feel confident to recreate your own makeup on your special day. It is also great to learn new tips to enhance your best features or just change your look up a bit!
What happens at a bridal trial, do I need to bring anything?
The trial usually takes a little over an hour, and it is helpful if you bring pictures of the makeup looks you are considering. If you don’t have any its ok, that’s what I am here for! We will work to discover what makes you feel confident and beautiful.
Can I schedule the trial to coincide with my engagement photos?
Yes, it is a great idea and a lot of my brides choose to do this. You will be able to see how the makeup photographs and decide if you want to alter anything for your wedding day. However keep in mind usually the engagement photos are more casual so the makeup is a little more subtle whereas the wedding may be a more formal event, and you might want to bump up or change your look all together.
What if I can’t decide between a softer look and a stronger one?
My advice is always for a bride to feel like the most radiant version of herself for her wedding. For the ceremony photos I recommend having makeup that feels authentic to oneself and natural whatever that looks like for each individual person. If you want to change up your look completely for the reception or later in the evening you can hire me to stay for touchups and I can transform your look so you can have the best of both worlds!
Will I need to prepare in any way before you do my makeup?
You should come with a clean face. Your welcome to put on your preferred skincare but I also have products with me that I know work beautifully under a makeup application while still allowing the makeup to be long wearing.
Can you travel to me? Does it cost more?
I am happy to travel. However, If you are not within the Aspen Valley please contact me to inquire about a travel fee.
How many people can you accommodate?
I can accommodate as many makeup applications as time will allow. As previously stated most makeup applications are about 45 minutes, and for a wedding I prefer to schedule that amount of time per application.
How much space do you need and what is the best area to set up?
I bring my own director’s chair and I need minimal table/counter space. I prefer to face a window to have good daylight. If I bring a second artist they will need to have space in a well-lit area as well.
What is your pricing for just one makeup, or a wedding party?
My Prices vary based on the event requested and specific needs of each client. Please see my contact page to fill out your request with as much information as possible and I will respond with applicable pricing.
I look forward to hearing from you!
