Bridal Makeup

Frequent Asked Questions

What type of makeup do you use?

We have many different types of makeup brands, finishes and types to fit all skin types,

conditions, shades, sensitivities, allergies and looks. I use a combination of traditional

makeup and airbrush makeup for all bridal work on an as needed basis.

 

Do I need a trial session prior to my wedding day?

In a word, yes. Though trials are not mandatory for your wedding, they are strongly

encouraged! This will give us time that isn’t stressful to meet, go over your vision, discuss

options, and create the best look for you!

 

When should I book my trial?

Your trial or preview session should be done between 3-6 months prior to your wedding

day. This way you have an idea on the time frame, look and feel of your wedding, your

dress selected, etc.

 

Can I do my trial for my bridal shower or engagement photos?

You can, but it isn’t recommended unless you want to look the same on your wedding

day. Your bridal shower and engagement photos are a little more casual; your wedding

look is usually a little more than what you would do for those occasions.

 

How long does each service take on the day of?

Each service is about 45 minutes to an hour. We of course take the most time on you, the

bride!

 

Do you provide lashes?

Yes, complimentary lashes are provided as needed with all services

 

What brand of makeup/hair products do you use?

We use a variety of products based on our client’s. Some of our favorites include; Nars, MAC,

Makeup Forever, Temptu, Aquage, Davines and Redken.

 

Do you charge extra for holiday weddings?

We do not charge extra for holiday weddings. As these weekends are always high in demand,

we do ask for a minimum of 5 services or booked on a holiday or holiday weekend. Holidays

include: New Year’s Eve/Day, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and

Christmas.

 

What do you do for large parties or small time frames?

If your bridal party needs more than 8 total services, or your time frame to get ready is minimal,

an additional artist may be needed. An additional fee of $100 per artist may apply for

administration and travel fees. You will be notified if there will be any additional fees prior to

the wedding day.

 

What if I decide to add a service after our proposed contract is signed?

You have up to 30 days to finalize all services. At that time, a final revised, contract will be

sent out and your final deposit will be due. Changes after the final contract are accommodated

at the discretion of MM Beauty and may incur additional fees. All services added day of

depend on time available and will need to be paid in cash.

 

I can't get into my venue to allow enough time to get ready, but want to

finish getting ready at the venue?

We understand that sometimes you are unable to get into your wedding venue with

enough time to perform all hair and makeup services. We can start in one location and

move to another location for a $50 charge each venue change.

 

What if additional people want to add the day of?

People can be added the day of if there is time permitting. Cash or Venmo are accepted

day of only.

 

My wedding starts early in the morning; do you provide early morning services?

Yes, of course MM Beauty is available for early morning weddings. If you need to be

dressed and ready to go before 9am there is a $100 additional fee for early arrival.

 

If my travel is in between the hour mark, how am I billed?

Travel is billed at $40 every hour. If your travel is for example an hour and a half, you

will be billed for two hours.

deducted from your final balance on the day of.
