Frequently Asked Questions
I have answered the most common questions that I get asked so you can have them at your fingertips. If you have a question that I haven't answered, feel free to contact me and I can answer it for you!
What products do i use?
I use a variety of high end makeup brands for my clients. I believe that getting your makeup done should be a treatment so I like to use high end products. I use a variety of brands as I prefer particular products to achieve different makeup techniques. A few of the brands that I have in my kit is Face Atelier, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Embryolisse, Graftobian, RCMA and Makeup Geek to name a few. All products are suitable for sensitive skin.
should i have a bridal trial?
I definitely recommend a bridal hair and makeup trial so you can see exactly how it will turn out on your wedding day. Bridal trials definitely eliminate stress as you can relax knowing how it will turn out. There is plenty of time at the trial and it's stress free so you can see what works with your skin and hair so you are completely satisfied with the end result for your special day. Makeup and hair trials are the same price as the wedding day.
Please cleanse your face before the makeup trial and wash your hair the day/night before the hair trial. Please bring any photos of what hair and makeup you like, any hair pieces (including veils) that you are wearing on the wedding day and/or lipstick you wish to wear. Lipstick samples are given on the wedding day so this is optional.
DO i travel to you for makeup and hair?
Yes, I am a mobile makeup and hair artist so I travel to you for your convenience. I am based in Orange NSW but I am willing to travel to your location. A small fee to cover car maintenance is required for locations outside of Orange. Locations can be either your address, a booked hotel room, and/or wedding location. Locations must have adequate lighting, power point for hair tools, and a high stool and table (optional - let me know prior so I can bring my own).
how many clients can i do?
Time for hair and makeup all depends on the style the client is wanting. Approximately I can do makeup in about 45mins and hair styling in 30mins for one person. When a client books their hair and makeup, I allocate enough time for hair, makeup and time to travel in between clients. I take pride in my work and I am known for always being on time. I haven't had a bride late to their wedding with hair and makeup!
If a friend or relative wishes to get their hair and makeup done on the day of a event or wedding, I can accommodate only if there is spare time and I don't have another booking to get to.
I never wear makeup. how should i research for inspiration?
If you never wear makeup and need some inspiration, definitely have a look at my gallery of all the work I have done. This is also a great way to decide on what hair styles you may like. I also recommend checking out Pinterest for hair and makeup ideas, I love Pinterest!
do you do makeup for flower girls?
Yes, makeup for flower girls (girls under 8 years old) is complimentary and involves some light blush on the cheeks and a little lippie. I think it is a great way to get the girls included without completely changing the way they look. And from past experience, the flower girls absolutely love it!
do you do makeup on men and can you cover tattoos with makeup?
Yes I can do makeup on men, whether it be for film, blemish/acne coverage or drag makeup. For film or flash photography at weddings, it is good to have some powder to diminish shine. Blemish/acne coverage and powder is only used where you need it so it isn't noticeable that you are wearing makeup.
I also do tattoo covering with makeup if a client wishes. Cost is per 15cm square. Contact Haley for any questions!
