Are you a qualified makeup artist?
Yes, I have a diploma in makeup artistry from KSSM. I have also been working in the beauty industry the past few years and have been trained through Clinique.
Do you travel outside of Christchurch?
Yes I do upon request. Travel charges of 0.75cents per km outside of the Christchurch zone apply.
How far in advance should I book?
I advise booking as far in advance for your appointment as possible to ensure you don’t miss out. I take bookings as far as two years in advance.
Do I need to make a deposit?
A non refundable deposit of $30 is required for each special occasion appointment but is taken off your final cost.
A non refundable deposit of $100 is required for wedding appointments but is taken off your final cost.
What products do you use in your kit?
I use a full range of top quality brands including but not limited to; MAC, Clinique, Hourglass, Revlon, Makeup Revolution and Milani.
Will my makeup last all day?
I only use excellent makeup products in my kit to ensure you remain looking beautiful all day. For weddings I do recommend taking your lipstick and powder/blotting paper with you to touch up after eating and photographs.
Do I need to bring anything?
You’re welcome to bring any product, skincare, makeup or eyelashes for me to use on you. I do offer individual false eyelashes at an additional $15 per person.
When is the best time to have a trial?
I recommend 4-8 weeks before your wedding. This allows time to finalise the kind of look you want for your big day. A lot of brides find they change their minds on what they want after the trial, that is absolutely fine too, it helps them confirm exactly what they want for the wedding.
How long does the makeover take?
Allow 45-90 minutes depending on your appointment type and the look you want. Allow extra time for wedding trials as this is also a consultation to ensure you get the look you’re after.
Do you come to me or do I come to you?
For special occasion makeup and trials I do at my home in my studio. For weddings I travel to you whether it be hotel or home. For special occasion makeovers of 2 or more, arrangements can be made for me to come to you, this may incur a travel fee for outside the Christchurch area.
