I accept cash on delivery but I have had experiences where clients have delayed in payment and therefore I encourage my clients to pay atleast a day before the time- cash or eft accepted. For bookings in advance I require a 50% deposit to secured your final date.
WHAT ABOUT TOUCH UPS DURING MY WEDDING DAY OR A CHANGE OF LOOK FOR THE EVENING?
During the day I can asure you that all that you will need touching up is your lip colour-which I will recommend you to get when you come for a trial. If you tend to have a more oily skin, you might need a touch up of powder during the course of the day, other than that I make sure to prime the skin well before application which allows makeup to last much longer as well as setting it at the end with a setting spray. This really helpes the longevity of your makeup.
I take all day bookings if you really feel you need it or better yet I will return in the evening to refresh or change your look from day to evening at an extra cost. For more info, refer to PRICES Page.
WILL I GET A WHITE FLASH BACK IN MY PICTURES?
Absolutely not! I use photochromic foundation, concealer & powder which basically means that there is no white appearance in your photographs, also the foundation I use does not have an SPF in it which is the main cause of a white and washed out appearance. If you require an SPF coverage on your face then I suggest that you apply your own before the makeup application but I would recommend that you stay clear of the SPF on your special day just to ensure no white flash back and an absolutely flawless and glowing complexion.
WHAT IF YOU ARE ILL ON MY WEDDING DAY?
To date this has never happened! In the very unlikely event of illness or an unavoidable 'act of God' I would make every effort to seek artist coverage from my extensive list of contacts.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY CONSULTATION/TRIAL?
Ideally this is best planned for 1 to 2 months prior to your wedding day- reason being- I always recommend a good skin care regime to my brides as good looking skin does wonders on your wedding day and it takes about 1-2months in order for the regime to show results. Remeber that skin that is not exfoliated and moisturised correctly will look cakey on your wedding day as makeup attaches to your dead skin cells. A more oily skin will cause excess shine and your makeup to shift and wear out faster. Therefore it is very important to keep your skin balanced and healthy.
WHICH COSMETICS DO YOU USE AND DO I NEED TO BRING MY FOUNDATION?
No you don't need to bring any of your own makeup, I will supply everything. My kit is vast and varied. I am not tied to one particular brand, everything from premium high end, to "drugstore" products has a place in my kit. I believe that sometimes even the much more inexpensive products work just as well or even better than the high end brands so I am therefore not biased towards high end products. For more info, refer to ABOUT Page.
WHICH GEOGRAPHICAL AREA DO YOU COVER?
I am based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa and can travel within Port Elizabeth, Uitenhage, Despatch and even Jeffrey's Bay. NB: Travel fees do apply. I have also travelled to Cape Town to attend to bridal parties, so I am willing to travel within South Africa at additional traveling fees of course.
