Questions & Answers
How do I reserve my wedding date?
A signed contract and a non-refundable, non-transferable retainer of $200 are required in order to reserve your date. Be please advised without these I can not reserve your date. The retainer will be put towards your final balance.
Do you have a minimum?
There is a $500 minimum for all Friday - Sunday wedding bookings (only applies during the wedding season). If your wedding day services do not add up to $500, but you would still like to book, please don’t hesitate to reach out and email me!
Do you provide on-site services? Do you travel out of San Diego?
All wedding day services and event services are done on-site at your getting ready venue or preferred location. I do travel out of San Diego and most definitely would love to do your wedding even if it’s outside the city! Travel fee may vary depending on the location. Please note, I am an onsite bridal artist, therefore all trials will be held at the client’s home or preferred location.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Accepted forms of payment include; cash, (always preferred), card, Venmo, and Cashapp. Gratuity is never expected but always appreciated. (NOTE: bridal consultations and deposit fees are two separate costs.)
Please note: The final balance is due on or before the day of the event before the makeup artist departs — no exceptions. The person(s) responsible for the entire balance of payment is the person(s) whose name(s) appear on this contract. A late fee of $50.00 will be charged for every day of delay of total payment.
How far in advance should I book?
I start booking up for the wedding season up to 18 months in advance, unless otherwise specified. I would recommend booking your beauty team as soon as possible!
Do you offer airbrush? What is the difference between airbrush and traditional application?
Yes I do! For those of you who are not too familiar with it, airbrush and traditional makeup is a way of application. Airbrush makeup is a technique that uses an air compressor to push foundation through the airbrush gun. Traditional makeup uses a variety of formulas from cream, to liquid to gel and is applied by a sponge or brush. In both cases, the application can be very sheer or build up to fuller coverage.

Do I need a bridal trial? And how should I best prepare for it?
I would always recommend a bridal trial. It not only allows you to see what you are envisioning for your bridal look, but also allows you to meet and connect with your artist. For a more in depth explanation of the importance of a bridal trial and how you should prepare for it, please click HERE.
When should I book my bridal trial?
I personally like to book trials 3-4 months prior to the big day. So that it's not too close the wedding date, that it could feel last minute, and not too far before the wedding as hair of skin conditions could change during that time.
What is the cancellation policy?
Cancellations must be made at least sixty (60) days prior to the client’s reserved date or the client will be responsible for paying the full amount of services agreed upon in this contract. Please note: your initial deposit is non-refundable.
