It's your Big day

So of course you may have questions.

I'm hoping that I have answered your question below but in the event that you still have additional questions feel free to email me at LaPorschaMonique@gmail.com

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO HIRE A MAKE-UP ARTIST FOR MY WEDDING/SPECIAL OCCASION?

The answer is quite simple; education, experience, knowledge and they create a stress-free, convenient environment. You want every thing to be perfect on your wedding day and so do they. The last thing you need to stress about is making sure your makeup looks just right. Relax; hire a professional bridal makeup artist that will come to you, which puts more time in your already busy schedule. With experience and skill, a makeup artist is able to create a look for you that fits you, your personality, and enhances your natural beauty. You will save time and energy and its fun! It is very important that your makeup will look as beautiful and relevant in 20 years as it does on the day of your wedding.

WHY DO BRIDAL/WEDDING MAKEUP COST MORE? 

Bridal makeup products are different and made to last longer. Your wedding day will be the most photographed day of your life. Longevity for makeup wear on your special day is a must especially for your photographer. It limits a lot of photoshopping and editing cost. The products are different and made to last longer. Also a customized schedule is made for the day of wedding. Block time/lost wages of the day for makeup artist because no other clients can be booked on your wedding day. Traveling Fee, parking, and valet also affect pricing.

I AM NOT SURE WHAT MAKEUP LOOK I WANT ON MY SPECIAL DAY, CAN YOU HELP?

Yes absolutely! I suggest you begin looking through pinterest or other social media outlets and finding several make-up photos that you like. On your bridal trial, I will create a look based on what you like that will fit you, and help you create the look you are hoping to achieve, from vintage to modern to natural. I'll also help you identify and accentuate your most flattering features to reveal your natural beauty. It can be daunting trying to find a look that you want, but I promise the process will be painless.

I WANT TO SURPRISE SOMEONE WITH A MAKEUP SESSION. CAN THIS BE DONE? 

Yes, if they’re open to it. If they absolutely dislike makeup please do not force them to get it. One of the hardest task for a makeup artist to do is place makeup on someone who doesn’t want it. This applies to anyone in a bridal party as well. If someone in your bridal don’t want makeup please don’t force them.

DO YOU OFFER BRIDAL TRIALS? IF SO, WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF THAT?

Yes, I highly recommend a trial at least 6 months before your wedding. It’s important for me to get to know you and the details surrounding your wedding. If you decide to book me for your wedding, your trial fee will be deducted from your package total. 

CAN I BRING A FRIEND OR MY MOM TO MY CONSULTATION TRIAL?

No, unfortunately I do not allow any guests to sit in on consultations. My focus is only on the brides opinion. With too many questions and ideas floating around I don’t want to lose focus on what the bride wants. 

CAN MY BRIDESMAIDS DO A CONSULTATION AS WELL? 

Absolutely! They can book separately for a personal trial. 

HOW LONG WILL THE MAKEUP LAST? AND WHAT BRANDS DO YOU USE?

Regular appointments for my everyday clients makeup last up to 8hrs. 

Bridal/Wedding Makeup last 16-20 hrs.

I only use the best products that I've personally have had experiences with myself to ensure its performance is up to quality. Main brands that I use in my kit are MAC, Makeup Forever, Laura Mercier, NARS, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Hourglass, INGLOT, Smashbox, Dior, Revlon, Rimmel etc. Other brands and products are always added throughout time as well.

HOW LONG DOES MAKEUP APPLICATION TAKE? AND DO YOU OFFER MAKEUP SERVICES FOR OTHER MEMBERS OF THE BRIDAL PARTY?

Unfortunately, I no longer service bridal parties. I

Makeup applications are scheduled for 1 hour. It may take less time, but 1 hour would be allocated per person to ensure proper application with no rush or hurry.

The same time is allocated for other members of the bridal party or mother’s etc.

WHY ARE FALSE EYELASHES NECESSARY AND CAN I OPT OUT OF USING IT?

In my opinion, false eyelashes complete a full makeup look. It is the finishing touch that adds that extra glam and sparkle to any look whether it be natural or dramatic. If you wear lash extensions, you may opt out of having additional false lashes applied. 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK A MAKEUP ARTIST?

I would recommend to book your makeup artist as soon as you get engaged! LOL! Or as soon as possible. I get booked quickly in the months of MAY, JUNE, JULY, AUGUST, SEPTEMBER, and OCTOBER. Not only for weddings but prom season, graduations, and bridal/baby showers.

DO YOU TRAVEL TO ME AND TO THE WEDDING? IF SO, WHAT DO YOU CHARGE FOR TRAVEL?

Yes! I travel to you for the wedding day, this makes it more convenient for you, and we will be in the comfort of your own home or location for the wedding day. Cost of travel will vary depending on location. 

WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO SECURE YOU FOR MY WEDDING DATE?

At the trial, if you decide to move forward and book me for your wedding day, I will just require a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold the date, and the remaining amount will be due a week before your wedding day.

 

SOME OF MY BRIDESMAIDS DON’T WEAR MAKEUP CAN I HIRE YOU FOR PARTIAL MAKEUP SERVICES FOR MY WEDDING? JUST EYES, OR JUST FACE?

Unfortunately I am not available for partial makeup services. For a look to be whole, complete and to represent my work, the makeup will need to be done by me from start to finish. This will also ensure the makeup will last all day. Unfortunately I do not touch up or do work or modification on other artist's work if there will be more than 1 makeup artist for your bridal party.

WHAT IF I HAVE TO RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT/WEDDING DUE TO COVID-19?

Appointments and your wedding can be reschedule if the date is available. Deposits and Retainers are non-refundable. Only transferable.
