Frequently asked questions
Do you require a retainer to book with you?
Yes, I require a non-refundable retainer to be paid to book any appointment with me. The amount varies depending on the appointment you are booking. All special event appointments there is a 50% retainer and for weddings it is 25%.
What payment methods do you take?
I accept cash, PayPal, Venmo and any credit/debit card payments. For weddings you will recieve an invoice to make payments on.
How soon in advance should I book with you?
For weddings I recommend booking as soon as you know your date and have the wedding venue secured. I only take one wedding a day so my availability is very limited. I have some people who book over a year in advance and then some lucky ones who book a couple months before their wedding.
When and where do trial runs take place?
Trial Runs take place at my studio in Tulsa, located near 51st and Sheridan. I recommend booking than about 4-6 weeks before your event. The trial will last between 90 minutes up to 2 hours. I really like to take my time during the trial to get to know you and study your face and create the perfect makeup look for you!
What if I want to schedule a trial run before actually booking my wedding with you?
We can also do a trial run before fully committing to each other. You will just pay the cost of the trial ($100) and I recommend scheduling it ASAP as your date is not held until the contract is signed and the remaining retainer balance is paid.
How long does a makeup appointment take with you?
First I must warn you, I am a perfectionist. You will leave looking perfected. Sometimes appointments can be longer than expected but never a crazy amount, more like 10-15 minutes. So always plan approiate buffer time between the next thing you have to do that day.
Can you accomodate large wedding parties?
Yes I can! I limit my self to a total of 6 faces at a wedding. But I have a team makeup artists that work with me in both the Tulsa and Oklahoma City areas. I will add them on when there are 7 or more in a bridal party. This will cut your wedding getting ready time in half!
How do you keep all your products and tools sanitized?
I am very passionate about keeping my things clean and sanitary! I hand wash all my makeup brushes after each use and disinfect the brush handles every time. I use a stainless steel palette that I sanitize in between clients. The palette is very important because I can place products on it that I should not be double dipping in, such as concealors, lip products, and powders.
How long will my makeup last?
Your makeup will last until you wash it off! The products I use are all long wearing since I specialize in bridal makeup. If you do happen to cry or sweat just remember to blot away moisture. Do not rub or wipe the moisturize. I also recommend to avoid touching your face as much as possible. Our hands naturally have oil on them so if we are rubbing and touching our face the makeup could potentially move.
What makeup brands do you use?
I use a ton of different brands ranging from professional only, to luxury to consumer products! The brands you will see in my kit are Charlotte Tillbury, Temptu, Estee Lauder, Smashbox, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Marc Jacobs, Cover FX, RCMA, Face Aterlier and more.
How far do you travel?
I am open to traveling anywhere! I LOVE traveling and long drives so a road trip always sounds like a good time to me. I am also passport ready if you're looking for a makeup artist to come with you on a destination wedding. I am ready for any adventure you want to take me on!
Do you have a minimum amount of services to book?
For weddings Friday-Sunday I require a minimum of 4 services to book. Monday-Thursday there is no minimum requirement. Sometimes I am flexible on the amount though just depending on the circumstances! Don't hestitate to reach out!
Do you do Bridal Hair as well?
No I do not! Hair has just never been my thing even after going to school for it! I do have a team that works with me though and we have 2 hair stylists. So we will get you taken care of!
