Bridal makeup may include:
Our grooming service is ideal for people that do not wear makeup but want to ensure they look their best in their wedding photos.
When you are spending a lot of money on photographs that will become a keepsake, grooming is an important service to consider. Grooming is a unique style of makeup that is applied in a way that makes it almost invisible. Dark eye circles, dull skin, redness in the face and pimples are the focus when performing a grooming application. Oily or shiny areas are made matte to ensure they do not create hot spots in the photographs.

Late fees: Late fee of $40 per hour may be applied if your party is late causing the booking to run over time.
To secure your booking on a particular date you may be required to pay a non-refundable holding fee. This fee goes towards your final fee on the day and is a retainer to ensure that your date is kept free for you. Your booking is not confirmed until this fee has been paid if requested. Occasionally the makeup artist will not request the retainer fee until someone else has requests that date, but you will be informed.
You will receive an invoice for the amount and can pay by bank transfer. The remaining fee must be paid up in full prior to or on the day in cash. Bank transfer on the day is not acceptable.
Due to the time it takes to complete a makeup (1 hour per person) hair styling services are not offered for weddings or bridal parties. We suggest that you book a mobile hair stylist to work along side the makeup artist to get you ready. Alternatively you can book into a hair salon and makeup can be performed there (with their permission) or at the location you are getting ready.
