FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

      What brands do you use in your kit and how do you keep it hygienic?

      Our team have fully equipped kits filled with high-quality products. High-end brands are used to treat the bridal party to ultimate luxury. Gemma personally favour brands that do not test on animals such as Charlotte Tilbury, Hourglass, Stila, Urban Decay, Chantecaille, Tarte, Toofaced and Face Atelier. Our team also use luxury brands such as Nars, Armani, Bobbi Brown, Tom ford, Mac, By Terry, Makeup Forever and Chanel. Our hairstylists use Cloudnine, Babybliss and GHD tools along with Bumble and Bumble, Label M and White Sands products. Only the best for our brides.

       

      As professional makeup artists, we take your hygiene seriously. We wash our hands before and after every client. We decant our products so we never double dip into liquids and creams to prevent cross contamination and our powders are sprayed with beauty so clean. Brushes are meticulously cared for, washed and sterilised so they are clean for every client and disposable mascara wands are always used. The safety and peace of mind of clients are our top concern.

      How much time should  I allow for my makeup and hair on my wedding day?

      For groups of four or more we send both a hair stylist and a makeup artist to ensure your day is smooth and stress-free. Our team is a well-oiled machine and works together seamlessly. We allow 45 minutes per person (although Carlie and Gemma need less time) and we calculate an extra half an hour to be safe.  This is more than enough time to ensure your time line runs to schedule and you have a calm and relaxing experience with us.

      If you have a large group for example of 9 people or more or if you need to be ready extra early then we can send extra artists to cater to your needs.

      Will my hair and makeup last all day?

      Makeup

      Ensuring long-lasting makeup is a priority of our bridal makeup artists. By using only the best products and primers, your makeup will last all day and night. We set your makeup with translucent powder and fixing spray and use waterproof mascara and eyeliner so your makeup is tear proof.

      A quick one minute touch up with your lipstick and pressed powder will be all you need to do to maintain your flawless look into the night.

      Hair

      If we are creating an updo for you then absolutely your hair will stay. If left out the tendrils around your face will soften naturally as the evening goes. If you are having your hair out then unfortunately there are no guarantees due to Sydney’s humidity and high winds. We do everything we can such as prepping with memory sprays and pin setting but ultimately if your hair is very fine or there is moisture in the air then it is out of our control. That is why we recommend either clip in hair extensions or half up half down styles. If you have your heart set on your hair out and you know your hair drops then you can book a call back service. Our artist will then come to your reception venue to freshen up your hair so it looks perfect for the reception party.

      Do you sell products for us to use later in the day?

      For your convenience we stock Melli lipsticks, glosses and translucent pressed powder. Melli is a luxurious Australian owned and cruelty free brand. There is no obligation to buy any products at all, however, we offer them if you would like to purchase a present for your bridesmaids or keep your wedding lipstick shade to use again as a keep sake.
