When should I book a trial with you?
We can book a trial at any point of the year. However, please keep in mind that trials do not ensure the confirmation of your wedding date. (Your deposit and contract do) Also, you should keep in mind of the season in which you are booking your trial or if you have any up coming events. Seasons change and so does your skin. Upcoming events can help you get a feel of how the makeup will last throughout the day and in photos.
Do you have a service minimum?
For weddings, yes. I require at least a 4 service minimum. Larger bridal parties that are over 6-7 will require a second artist to be booked upon the availability of that artist.
Do you offer package deals?
Yes! Please submit your inquiry to find out more info on pricing and packages.
How do I know if your makeup / kit is clean?
Sanitation is our BIGGEST priority and we cannot stress this enough. We always deep clean our kits/tools prior to every event and clean our tools/makeup in between each client. Using sanitation products such as 70% alcohol, disinfecting wipes, professional grade brush cleaner, disposable applicators and sponges.
Why did you choose your brand name?
From our Founder: "Well, after spending many years in the mental health field, I too struggled with my own mental health. I knew it was time for me to find an outlet. I had always told my clients, that "beauty begins with a beautiful mindset" and with this, I have always felt the need to inspire. Makeup is my therapy...and sometimes, I can never make up my own damn mind. Plus puns are cool"
