10 Questions with Lauren Gibbs

1. Introduction: What's your story?

Since 2012, I have loved every second of helping brides and their families achieve effortless perfection for their wedding day! Weddings can be stressful, time consuming, and (let’s be honest) a little bit crazy but my job is to make as much of that whirlwind, once-in-a-lifetime experience one you’ll remember with joy for the rest of your life!

Everything from hair to makeup to time management, it thrills me to be the expert in your corner and the highly trained professional with expertise to make your vision come true. Trust me when I say that I have the skill set to make it all happen! With three boys keeping me on my toes, I’ve learned to roll with the punches, think on my feet, and adapt quickly to changing scenery so you can rest easy knowing that I'll be the maestro helping everything stay on track, stay organized, and stay gorgeous!

“I personally feel like weddings should be enjoyable, and Colorado Bridal Company was my vision for helping this time be a memorable one for you, your family, and friends. Everyone has a unique personality and style, and my goal is to connect to that and really work with you to have the exact look you want for the wedding festivities. I absolutely love talking with the people and try to connect with them on a personal level so that you understand I have every intention of making this part of your big day as special as can be.

2. What's your experience as a bridal hair & makeup artist? How many brides are in there in your portfolio?

*Evergreen Package (Bride)*
Includes hairstyle of choice
Airbrush or traditional makeup
Lashes included

*Aspen Package (bridesmaids/moms)*
Includes hairstyle of choice
Airbrush or traditional makeup
Lashes included

(all options are listed on the website for all attendees)

4. Do you have a team of assistants or will you be the only artist that day? What will happen if you're sick or have an emergency on the wedding day?

I work with a handful of beauty professionals that assist me. The number of assistants grow every year!

5. Do you charge a travel fee? For what distance? What does that cover?

Travel fees vary. Please inquire for specific travel destinations.

6. Can the bride book a wedding makeup trial appointment and will you also do a trial before the wedding?

Trials are always available whether it is in person at my studio or via video chat to answer any questions you may have!

7. What beauty products do you use and would you be open to the bride using her own make-up?

I use a plethora of different products that are cruelty free and hypoallergenic. Products used can change from person to person that would be best for their skin type. A consultation between myself and my bride is always necessary to get to your desired look.

Using your own makeup is fine if you have certain allergies or sensitivities, but using professional products to last all day and evening would be your best bet!! Lets chat about it!

8. How can you make the bride's wedding makeup last and look good in photos?

We do makeup for photos specifically. Those will be with you, on your mantle, for the rest of your days! Lets make you look flawless.

9. How long will makeup take on the day and how long will you be staying for on the day?

Makeup usually takes about 45 mins and will last you all day. We stay for "getting ready" time, which we schedule out. If we are needed for time after that for touchups additional fees apply.

10. What is your cancellation and/or refund policy?

We require a $200 non refundable retainer to book. If you need to cancel within 60 days prior to the contracted date, the remaining balance will still be due.

Refund policy depends on what would need to be refunded. We can always talk about this during our consultation too.
