Appointment Preparation

Your appointment for Hair and makeup is booked.  Here is all of the information you need before your beauty session


makeup appointment preparation

  • Please come to your appointment with your face clean of makeup, mascara, and eyeliner.  If you are unable to clean your face prior to your appointment, we will remove it with a makeup wipe. 
  • You may use your personal skincare before your appointment.  We likely will remove it and prep your skin for the makeup application using products in our kit. 
  • Please have your eyebrows to your liking regarding hair removal.  We do not offer eyebrow tweezing, threading, and waxing. 
  • If you plan to have your eyebrows waxed or threaded before your makeup appointment/special occasion, we recommend trying it at least one time prior to your special day.  Sometimes clients can have a reaction to these services, so it's always best to know how you will react and how you will like the look.  
  • If you plan to have a spray tan for your makeup appointment/special occasion, we recommend trying it at least one time prior to your special day.  It's always best to know exactly how the spray tan will look and wear, so that you don't have any unexpected mishaps on your special occasion.  
  • Any additional preparation services such as facials, dermaplaning, exfoliation, and skin care should be tried out prior to your special occasion.  Again, you may have an unexpected reaction to these things, so it's best to know how they will work for you, and what to expect.  
  • If you have any special concerns regarding the health of your skin, eyes, or lips, such as allergies or a health condition, please reach out prior to your appointment to let us know so that we may best accommodate you.  
  • If you have extreme tan lines, scar,s or tattoos you'd like covered up, or something on the body you'd like addressed with makeup, please reach out to us in advance to let us know.  We are happy to correct body concerns with makeup at an additional cost.  
  • If you have eyelash extensions, or are thinking about having them for your special occasion, please reach out to your Makeup Artist to discuss.
  • Your Makeup Artist will ask you many questions in order to create a custom look for you.  Please have an idea of how you'd like your makeup to look, and feel free to show inspiration pictures.  
  • For brides who want specific looks for their bridal party, have images ready at the trial so that you may discuss with your Makeup Artist. 
  • If you are having a bridal trial, please wear something light in color that reflects your wedding dress, so that it can give you an idea of how your hair will look on your big day.
