Your work is amazing. When should I book my wedding day?
After you set your wedding date, we suggest that you book your makeup artist immediately. Our clients usually book us 6 to 9 months in advance after they confirm the wedding date. A deposit is required to secure our service(s) for your wedding date.
What is a Bridal Trial and why is it required?
A bridal trial is required to ensure that we achieve the perfect look for your wedding day! We will spend 2 hours with you to design the look that fits your personality and will best match the style of your wedding.
It is always recommended to book your wedding day before having your trial to ensure availability. It is also better to have the trial done in advance just in case you decide to make any adjustments to your makeup choices.
What do I need to prepare for my Bridal Trial?
We ask that you bring as much information as you prefer. You may bring images of inspired makeup looks, wedding dress, wedding accessories, and/or your wedding theme, color, and style. Anything you share with us will help us find the perfect look for you! Please also inform our artists of any skin/ allergy condition(s) prior to application.
What can I expect from the Bridal Trial if I rarely wear makeup?
We want to enhance our bride’s natural beauty during the trial session. We would first start off with a natural makeup look and bump it up from there if there are any adjustments that you would like to make.
Is there a trial available for my bridal parties or guests?
Yes! Brides, bridesmaids, and moms are more than welcome to come in for a trial.
Do you provide airbrush makeup?
We do offer airbrush application and it can be added to any makeup service as an upgrade.
What brand of makeup products do you use?
All of the products we use are of the best quality! We mix and match the most suitable products from various brands.
Please inform our artists of any skin/ allergy condition(s) prior to application.
Do I need to wear heavy makeup for photos?
There seems to be a misunderstanding of wearing “heavy” makeup for photos. Candace specializes in creating makeup that looks great in person and on camera in both natural and artificial lighting.
What is the wedding day timeline?
The bride will usually require 1-1.5hrs for makeup and each bridal party member will require 1hr.
A friendly reminder to all the brides: most delays are caused by the person not being present in the room for their scheduled time slot. To keep things running smoothly, we ask that you have everyone ready when the artist arrives.
Should I request a touchup service for my wedding?
The touchup service is available upon request. The bride will usually request touchup service if they have more than one gown and want to showcase more than one look for their wedding. We will gladly stay for touch ups after all services are complete and require a 2-hour minimum.
My fiancé might want a face touchup. Do you offer any services for the groom?
Yes, we do offer a camera ready application for grooms. This will help to minimize skin tone issues, redness, and shine.
Do you offer any other services besides weddings?
Yes! We would love to be a part of your engagement and/or boudoir photo session. We can also help get you ready for your rehearsal dinner!
What form of payments do you accept?
We accept cash, credit cards, and venmo.
What is your wedding cancelation policy?
Final balance will be due, in full 30 days prior to completion of services/ event.
Cancelations and refunds requested prior to 4 weeks of the event: a maximum of 50% of the final total is refundable. All cancelations and refund requests must be made in writing.
No refund will be made less than 4 weeks prior to the event and/or after services are completed.
What is the cancellation policy for trial, special occasion, engagement session/ boudoir sessions?
The full-service rate will be charged if you cancel your appointment within the 24 hours of the appointment time or if you are a “no show.”
