Do you have a studio? Do you travel to me?

Do you offer makeup lessons?
Absoutely! We offer one-on-one makeup lessons and a few different kinds of workshops. Please inquire if you would like a lesson. You can read more about it here.
What kind of makeup and skincare do you use?
After years of testing hundreds of products and brands - We use what works best and we personally test every product in our kits. You will find luxury retail brands like NARS, Stila, Chanel, LORAC, Illamasqua, Make Up For Ever, Lancome; some drug store brands like Revlon and L'Oreal; along with pro industry brands such as Cinema Secrets, TemptuPRO, Yaby, OCC, MAC PRO, Embryolisse, Graftobian - camera-ready brands used in the film/tv industry. We carry products that work in all environments and with all skin tones and types.
Some of our artists have sensitive skin themselves and are very careful of what is packed in the kit for all clients. If you have a particular skin concern, don't hesitate to let us know!
Why should I choose you over going to a salon?
We work on-site which gives you the luxury of just sitting back and enjoying our services - even in your pj's! Our rates include travel within the NY metro area. You are saved the hassle and stress of driving to and from a salon - in traffic - looking for a parking spot - hoping you won't be late to your wedding day makeup session. Sometimes salons can back up, as you are not generally their only client for the day. We come dedicated to YOU for your wedding day. It's also a very bonding experience with your bridal party and family to be pampered together at your hotel or venue of choice.
What services do you provide? (airbrushing, faux eyelashes, tattoo cover, etc)
We provide both traditional and airbrush makeup applications, and both will defy meltdown. At your bridal trial we will help determine which works for you and sometimes we may use both. We have a specific technique to make all of our makeup not only camera ready, but also bulletproof.
We also offer tattoo coverage, decolletage blending, skin prep and primer for all skin types, body airbrush for bruises, scars, etc. Determination of price depends on size, and other considerations - to be discussed at your trial. This isn't something that can be spring on us on your wedding day. A picture prior to trial is a must. Every application takes planning for extra time and product. You can read more about it here.
We love faux lashes and recommend them for just about everyone. The right lash type and customized size can work wonders. We carry many styles from light to high fashion and everything in between - and at times create a custom made set. Our application technique alone can lift the eye optically - and erase years off a face (great for every woman over a certain age). They can make your eyes POP and are excellent for photography.
My bridal party is pretty large - how long will makeup take?
Most brides who book us want our signature looks and personal aesthetic. We do have quite a few amazing beauty artists to assist -- so no worries.
Bridal beauty trials take up to 1-1/2 hours to get the look just right - some a little less. Most of our trials are booked in-studio. Wedding day makeup ideally takes anywhere from 30-40 minutes per face - with the bride about 1 hour maximum - adding interruptions will affect time. Once booked, we work with you to help determine your smooth beauty wedding day timeline.
