How do you clean your make-up brushes?
After each use I sanitize my brushes with Cinema Secrets anti-bacterial brush cleaner. This is comparable to a make-up brush safe barbicide. I also use a 70% alcohol spray & clean each brush with anti-bacterial brush shampoo after each event.

What is bridal trial make-up?
A trial is when we discuss your make-up needs and I apply make-up to you as a trial run. Here we can discuss things you like or want to focus on, as well as tweak anything in preparation for your big day.
Do you have waterproof make-up? Will the make-up stay all day?
First, I used high quality make-up primer on eyelids and skin which gives the makeup a base to stick to and helps the color stay radiant and true. Then, I use waterproof eyeliner and mascara. Lastly, I use a professional grade setting powder and setting spray which also allows the make-up to stay put throughout the day. If you find yourself tearing, always remember to dab your tear duct, never rub you eyes.
My bridal party/event includes many girls, do you have an assistant?
Yes, I do have assistants. The number of girls and time limits determine if I will bring a second Artist or not.
How long does a make-up application take?
On average between 35-40 minutes; however this can vary depending on false lash application, air brush, or elaborate detailed looks. It can also be as little as 15 minutes for runway shows, etc. I easily adapt based on client need.
Can I bring or e-mail you a picture of a look I like?
