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

A wedding makeup application requires proper skin prep and set combined with highly pigmented color products, especially lipstick, in order to wow your guests all day long and look great in professional wedding photography.

1) Use a foundation primer such as Smashbox Photo Finish Smooth and Blur-- this will ensure a smooth surface for your foundation that will maximize its wear-time.

2) Opting for a matte-finish versus dewy in foundation and powder products will provide a smoother appearance in professional photos and last longer throughout the day.

3) Choosing highly pigmented color products in lipstick will give your overall makeup look long wear ability, as well as look incredible in photos. Brighter lipstick shades can be daunting but can offer many benefits to a wedding day makeup. ShikSona's hydrating formula not only feels great on lips but is long-wearing and offers a popping color selection that looks great on all skin tones.

4) Setting spray is a must to seal in your finished makeup look. Liberally apply Smashbox Photo Finish Setting Spray Weightless all over the face to lock in your look all day.

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

It depends on the bridal requests and number of clients participating in the package.

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

Group appointments can not be cancelled, however the deposit can be applied to future services. A no-show will be charged the complete price for the scheduled service(s).
