Makeup and Hair FAQ's

 

Review the information below with your bridal party, and anyone else receiving services. Knowing what to expect before, during and after your appointment will allow for a more relaxing beauty experience. 

I'll take care of the details, so you don't have to.

♥BEFORE

Is a makeup/hair preview mandatory?

No, but it's highly recommended. When you find a photo you admire, it's important to see how the colours and textures translate on to your skin. Makeup is amazing in that a slight change in colour, texture, or line can transform your look completely. I'm here to guide you through looks that may better suite your skin tone, eye shape, and comfort level. Making slight adjustments during your preview allows us to create a unique look just for you. Don't be shy about experimenting with different looks and hairstyles, you'll never know what you may decide. Try to book your preview no later than 4 weeks before your wedding date.

May I book a preview before booking you for my wedding day?

Yes! However, booking a preview does not secure your wedding date. If another bride inquires about that same date, Gracie will send you a courtesy e-mail to notify you. A date is only secured when your retainer is received along with your signed agreement. 

Can you accommodate large bridal bookings?

Yes! If your booking requires, there will be other artists present to help out. For large bridal parties (6+ services), it's best to inquire at least 6 months in advance. The presence of an additional artist depends on the span of time you have to get ready and the number of services. Most often an assistant isn't required for 6 or less services. If you have a limited time to get ready, ask about the express service option! Additional artists are always subject to availability. 

I have a deep/fair/olive skin tone, do you have my foundation colour?

Yes! We own every foundation colour you can imagine. No need to worry about our products matching your skin tone. We bring every colour to every booking. 

What if I have allergies cosmetics?

Please make us aware of any and all known allergies you may have to products, or cosmetic ingredients. For preferences, such as vegan products, please contact Gracie. If specific products need to be purchase for use, the cost will be added to the booking.

How do I prep for my makeup application?

Cleanse your entire face, neck and décolletage the morning before your appointment. Refrain from exfoliating your face with sugar scrubs, and waxing or tweezing facial hair at least 1-2 days before your appointment. If you've had a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or similar skin treatment, ensure that any irritation or redness has subsided 2-3 weeks in advance.

How do I prepare my hair for styling?

Your hair should be clean, dry and product-free. Please wash and blow-dry your hair the day before your appointment. Damp, freshly washed, or overly conditioned hair will not hold a curl properly. Also, please do not straighten your hair 48 hours before your appointment.

Are false lashes an extra cost?

No. Everyone who receives a makeup application also receives complimentary false lashes! 


♥DURING

What do artists need on location?

1. a clean, flat, work-surface
2. an indirect source of natural sunlight
3. easy access to electrical outlets
4. a stool or tall chair for makeup applications
5. a low chair for hairstyling

I also never object to a cup of coffee! (Tall Americano's with toffee-nut and soy mik are my jam☺)

How long will it take to do my makeup?

It can take between 30-60 minutes for a complete makeup application. The time it will take depends on the specific "look" you want, the amount of coverage needed, and addition of add-ons such as false lashes. A 45 minute block is held for each makeup service, some looks take up more time, and some take less.

How long will it take to do my hair?

It can take between 30-90 minutes per hairstyle. The time depends on the desired style, and addition of extensions or hair pieces. The length, density, and texture of your hair also determines time of completion. A 45 minute block is held for each hair service, some styles take up more time, and some take less.

Can you also put accessories in my hair?

Of course! Please ensure that all hair clips, fascinators, hats, extensions and hair pieces are clean and ready to be installed upon our arrival.

Does your bridal hairstylist need a licence to style your hair?

No. As there is no cutting, colouring, or chemical treatments being put into your hair, your hairstylist does not require a license.

 

♥AFTER

Can you accommodate last minute makeup applications or hairstyles?

Yes. We can provide guests or family members with last minute beauty services! However, this can only be done once the contracted services have been completed. If the scheduled block of time does not allow for additional services, the start time may have to be pushed up. Note that start-times before 7:00 AM (EST) are subject to an additional early-start fee. For these last minute, on-the-spot additions, we only accept cash.

How do I pay for services?

Please designate a member of your bridal party (MOH), to be responsible for payment on the day of. The bride is responsible for any and all balances and/or shortages left unpaid by members of the bridal party. Gathering payment a day in advance is always beneficial. This will save time, and eliminate the stress of running around asking people for payment.

Am I obligated to tip my artist?

No. Leaving a tip reflects your satisfaction with the services provided, and the individuals who provided them. If you wish, you may tip your artist directly after the service, the percentage to leave is always up to you!

 


Not so F.A.Q.'s


What is the difference between airbrush and traditional makeup?

Airbrush makeup is an application method wherein product is blown onto the skin through a cosmetic air gun. Rather than being worked in with a brush, the makeup sits on top of the skin like a blanket. Often people assume that someone looks "airbrushed" in photos because airbrush makeup was used, but this is not true. The airbrush look you see in photos is usually the result of editing the image in Adobe Photoshop, or another similar app. Both airbrush makeup and traditional makeup applications can look equally flawless, are HD friendly and can last for many hours. The longevity of your makeup is ultimately a reflection of your artist, no matter what method they use.

Is airbrush makeup a good option for me?

As the makeup sits on top of the skin, it's best suited for individuals without any texture issues. It's not recommended for people with lines, wrinkles or severe acne scarring. Airbrush makeup is also more prone to cracking and is harder to touch-up throughout the day. Contact Gracie if you are not sure if this is a good option for you.

A member of my bridal party wants a makeup and/or hair trial, is this possible?

Yes. However, it will cost the same as a bridal preview since it takes the same amount of time, product and expertise. A better option is just to book a special event makeup application or a special event hairstyle! This will give you enough time to meet me and discuss your likes and dislikes in regards to makeup and hair.

I want a very "natural" look, will it be cheaper?

No. It takes just as much time, product and expertise to create a natural look that captures beautifully in real life and on camera. It's often more challenging to produce a flawless look with a natural glow than a dramatic one. Also, the term "natural" is very subjective. Kim Kardashian's definition of "natural makeup" is likely different than both yours and mine.

What products do you use?

We carry a variety of the best and most effective makeup, skincare and hair care products available to industry professionals. If you have any questions regarding products, please contact us!

Can you use my own makeup for the application?

If you insist, but it's not recommended. Products we carry in our kits make the cut because they are the best and most effective products for the job. They are tried, tested and true. A lot of chemistry goes into a makeup application, and certain products just don't work well together. Adding your personal makeup into the application can alter its colour, texture and longevity. 

I want all down-do's for me and my bridal party, will it be cheaper than an up-do?

No. Often down-do's actually take longer than up-do's since all the hair has to be set in place for a longer period of time. Every section of the hair is curled and set perfectly to ensure it lasts through sweat, movement and the elements. There are also many simpler up-dos that are quicker to create than down-do's. 

We booked our hair services in a salon, can you work there?

Yes, but It depends on the salon. Many salons in the city welcome freelance artists to work within their space. Make sure to ask your salon in advance if you prefer to have your makeup done there too. Salons that also offer makeup services, may not allow other artists to work there. Just ask in advance before you book your services, it will make your life easier having all this info.
