What makeup products do you use?
I use mainly MAC in my kit but have a few products that I prefer from other brands such as Smashbox cosmetics.
Can you cater for larger weddings?
Yes, I have a team of artists that assist me on larger bookings so no group is too big or small.
How long will the makeup application and hair styling take?
For the bride it takes 2 hours (or 1 hour for makeup or hair only) and for bridesmaids, guests, special occasions and school balls it takes 1.5 hours for hair and makeup (or 45 mins for makeup or hair only). I like to allow an extra 30 minutes for larger bookings to include 10 minutes for set up and 20 minutes for hair and makeup touch-ups at the end. Makeup lessons range from 1 – 2.5 hours depending on the chosen lesson.
Do you provide lashes?
Most definitely! I usually use individual cluster lashes as they are long lasting, comfortable and can be applied as natural or dramatic as you like.
How far can you travel and what is the charge?
I can travel anywhere within New Zealand. Travel is free of charge within Tauranga. For bookings outside of Tauranga there is a fee of 76 cents per km, which is the recommended IRD rate.
What do I need to do to prepare for my booking?
Please wash your hair the evening before so it is clean and dry on the day and have nothing but moisturiser on your face. If you have a certain look in mind please have images of the styles you would like so we can use these as a reference on the day.
How long will my makeup last?
I use high quality, long lasting and water proof products to ensure your makeup will last all day and well into the night. The only thing you may need to reapply after eating and drinking is your lipstick, so you will be provided with a small touch up kit which includes your chosen lippy colour.
Do I need to have a bridal trial?
It is totally up to you, but I do highly recommend to get a trial done as this is the only way you will know you are completely happy with the look.
