Summer Brides!

Ever wonder why “Bridal Makeup” is more expensive than a normal makeup application?  Here I answer this question for a future bride:

“…also, is there any functional difference between Makeup Application under “Individual Services” versus “Bridal Services”? I know that everyone charges more for bridal, but I’m just curious. The “functional” difference between a Bridal Application and a regular Individual Service is the time and attention to detail it takes to do bridal makeup.  The bridal applications tend to be more stressful, take place on-location and require more steps in the applications for longevity.  The planning and time spent on emails/communication, invoicing and customizing schedules are “hidden” hours that I do myself and can add up to hours of work before I even pick up a brush.  I also offer each bride a sample of the custom blended lipstick for touch-ups, airbrush foundation along with complimentary lashes.” 


I am now booking for Summer 2013.  Hurry before all time slots are full!
