Frequently asked questions
What happens during the make-up trial?
Schedule about 90 minutes for your bridal make-up trial. We take the time to adjust the make-up to your bouquet of flowers, your accessories, your hairstyle and of course your bridal gown. Your styling for this special day is destined to create a stunning, gorgeous overall impression, topped off by flawless make-up to highlight your best facial features. Moreover, I want to get to know you, your skin care routine and your beauty needs to choose the ideal products and the perfect colour palette to suit your demands. Then we do the make-up and you test-wear it for the day to check out its durability, wearing comfort and your skin’s tolerance to all products used.
Will the bridal make-up last all day long?
Fundamentally: yes. Depending on your skin type I recommend to book the bridal deluxe package that includes the suitable powder product (especially if you have oily or redness-prone skin) to mattify any shiny spots that may emerge during the day. The package also comprises a lipstick or lipgloss to re-apply after dinner. Otherwise, the make-up will last all day - thanks to a flawless application and a carefully chosen and time-tested array of products.
Do you also offer airbrush make-up?
Yes. The airbrush foundations that I use are based on silicones, thus rendering the make-up waterproof, smudge-proof and extremely durable. Airbrush technique can be easily combined with traditional application techniques. Extra-charge for airbrush beauty make-up: 10 Euros, airbrush for bridal make-up: 20 Euros.
Do I have to come to your studio for my make-up?
No. I offer mobile services and am happy to come to your home or wherever you want to have your make-up done (hotel, mother of the bride’s home, your home, photographer’s studio, on-site outdoor locations etc.) Please make sure you can provide two simple chairs and a small flat surface (e.g. kitchen table) for tools as well as sufficient light.
Why should I splurge on a high-end make-up?
There are many reasons. I offer years of experience, perfect application techniques and product knowledge that I received in various trainings and seminars. Make-up for photography or videography, for instance, demands other techniques and tools than classical daytime make-up. Each skin type has different make-up needs, each woman has her own, unique style and personality that I adapt to. The colours, products, finishes and textures available are difficult to choose from without expert knowledge. Besides: every woman deserves to be pampered once in a while! Have a professional reveal your best features and learn a trick or two.
Do you do bridal hairstyling?
No. But I can recommend experienced hair stylists.
I want to improve my make-up skills – can you help me?
I’d love to! I offer individual make-up training. We analyse your make-up tools, I show you the best techniques and the tricks of the trade and we do a great make-up look that suits your features. You also receive a face chart to practice on your own. I also offer shopping assistance and personalised goodie bags on demand to help you avoid mispurchasing and to help you safe money.
