WILL MY MAKEUP STAY ON ALL DAY?

OUR LONG-WEARING TRADITIONAL FOUNDATIONS WILL LAST ANYWHERE FROM 8 TO 12 HOURS DEPENDING ON THE FINISH. WE OPT TO HAVE WATER RESISTANT FACE PRODUCTS AND ALWAYS HAVE WATERPROOF MASCARA AND EYELINER. KEEP IN MIND HOWEVER BEING IN THE FLORIDA HEAT, HUMIDITY AND RAIN, IT CAN DECREASE TRADITIONAL FOUNDATION WEAR TIME. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING AIRBRUSH FOUNDATION FOR THE HOT MONTHS OR IF YOU HAVE EXCESSIVE OILY SKIN. LET'S JUST SAY YOU COULD DUNK YOURSELF IN A POOL AND EVERYTHING WILL STAY IN TACT. THE SETTINGS RANGE FROM SATIN RADIANCE TO NATURAL MATTE. EVEN IF YOU DON'T HAVE OILY SKIN, AIRBRUSH GIVES THE SKIN THE SOFTEST LOOK, BLURRING OUT ANY TEXTURE.

 

HOW DO I AND MY BRIDAL PARTY PREPARE OUR SKIN AND HAIR BEFORE WEDDING?

WE PROVIDE A PREP GUIDE PDF FOR YOU AND YOUR LADIES TO REVIEW WITH SKIN CARE RECOMMENDATIONS.. BASIC INSTRUCTIONS ARE PRETTY SIMPLE, CLEAN FACE WITH NO PRODUCTS, MOISTURIZER IS ACCEPTABLE HOWEVER NO SPF OR RENTINOL PLEASE. HAIR SHOULD BE DRY UPON ARRIVAL (A DAY OLD HAIR) UNLESS ANYONE IS DOING A FULL BLOW OUT SERVICE OR PAYING ADDITIONAL FOR A LIGHT BROW DRY BEFORE DRY STYLING. 

FOR ANYONE WITH CURLY HAIR AND LOOKING TO DO A SOFT CURL OR STRAIGHT LOOK, HAIR MUST BE BLOWN OUT PRIOR TO OUR ARRIVAL. 

DO I NEED TO BOOK A TRIAL? IF SO, HOW FAR IN ADVANCE?

A TRIAL IS NOT REQUIRED TO OFFICIALLY BOOK HOWEVER WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOOKING A TRIAL AT SOME POINT TO COLLABORATE AND LOCK DOWN A LOOK THAT YOU WILL LOVE. WE RECOMMEND TO SCHEDULE THE TRIAL AT LEAST 3 MONTHS PRIOR. IT GIVES AMPLE TIME TO SEE IF THE HAIR STYLE AND MAKEUP LOOK IS THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOU AND COHESIVE TO YOUR DRESS AS WELL AS THE AESTHETIC OF YOUR WEDDING. WE LIKE TO SCHEDULE TRIALS IN THE WEEKDAYS AT ANY TIME OR SUNDAYS IF THERE ARE NO WEDDINGS BOOKED. WE RESERVE FRIDAY-SUNDAYS FOR WEDDINGS ONLY, WE ASK FOR FLEXIBILITY WITH TRIALS, AS OUR COMMITMENT TO BRIDES IS PRIORITY, (UNLESS OF COURSE, YOU'RE FROM OUT OF STATE IN WHICH WE UNDERSTAND AND WILL TRY TO MAKE IT WORK WITH YOU)

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STRIP AND INDIVIDUAL LASHES?

STRIP LASHES ARE THE REGULAR WHOLE LASHES THAT YOU APPLY WITH GLUE ON THE STRIP AND APPLY ON TOP OF THE LASH LINE. INDIVIDUAL LASHES ARE INDIVIDUAL CLUSTERS OF LASHES THAT ARE GLUED ON ONE BY ONE TOP OF THE NATURAL LASH RESULTING IN A VERY NATURAL LOOK AS YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SEE A BASE ON  THE LASH LINE. WITH INDIVIDUAL LASHES, YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE YOUR OWN LOOK AND FULLNESS THAT BEST FITS YOUR EYE SHAPE. BECAUSE IT TAKES LONGER TO APPLY, THERE'S AN ADDITIONAL FEE.
