What hygiene measures do you use for your tools and products?
The first cardinal rule when it comes to makeup is always Hygiene, I am very Keen and obsessed when it come to cleaning my kit including my brushes. When it comes to myself I live by my own standards, that if I would not use it for myself I would not use it on any of my clients.

Yes. lashes are always included in the prices. I use strip and individual lashes. Individual lashes are only done by request and are more costly.
Do you offer hair styling services?
No. but I can give you recommendations on hair stylist that I have worked in the past with.
Should I have my hair or makeup completed first?
Yes, hair is the first thing you should do, this helps maintain your makeup application in pristine condition.
Should I have a makeup trial for Bridal services?
A makeup trial is definitely recommended for weddings. It's an opportunity to explore different makeup styles and discuss the theme of your event, your gown, how you usually wear makeup and share ideas about makeup styles you might be interested in. The trial reduces stress and the risk of not liking the end result on that very important day of your life. You can arrange to have your hair and makeup trial on the day your taking your engagement pictures or any other wedding related event. This way you'll have something fun to do with your makeup. The trial with take about 90 minutes and you can bring references of any makeup style that you like.
How many people can you fit in on a wedding day?
Since I am very detailed oriented I usually book no more than 6 people (bride included). Exceptions can be considered.
How long will my makeup last?
Yes. I only use professional products they have a higher concentration of pigment compared to commercial makeup lines, therefore your makeup will last up to 10 hours or more. The only thing you will need to touch up is your lips, having a lipstick or lipgloss is essential. If your skin gets super oily or glossy I recommend using oil-blotting sheets to absorb the shine without ruining the makeup.
Do you offer airbrush makeup? What is airbrush makeup?
Yes, I do airbrush makeup for full face coverage. Airbrush makeup is sprayed onto the skin using an airbrush compressor instead of sponges, brushes, fingers or other methods. This is used to give your skin a flawless radiant and natural look. This is mostly used on Bridal makeup and offered upon request, price will vary.
