Frequently Asked Questions... (Before Booking)
Here is everything you need to know before booking MMUS for your beautiful Wedding Day.
What are your rates?
On my website, you can inquire through our “Contact Me” section. Please let us know the event type, date, location and how many services you are looking book and we will send you a menu and availability within 48 hours.
What is Airbrush Makeup?
Airbrush makeup is makeup sprayed onto the skin using an airbrush instead of being applied with sponges, brushes, fingers, or other methods. Airbrush makeup has become more popular with the advent of high-definition (HD) photography and videography. Traditional powder or liquid based make-up can settle and appear in pores and wrinkles and be visible on HD film. As the makeup is sprayed on, it connects with the skin as millions of droplets of formula. The formula can create an even, sheer, natural appearance to the skin that, if applied properly for a natural look, can appear natural and non-heavy like traditional makeup. Airbrush makeup wears longer than traditional powder or liquid foundation, and is able to stay put upwards of 12–24 hours. Application wise, the technique is more sanitary than traditional makeup application due the artist never having to touch the skin.
What if I want Traditional Makeup?
That's no problem. I carry high-end, professional, traditional makeup, for brides and bridal parties who choose not to do Airbrush.
Are lashes included in the price?
Lashes are always included in the price for all services except Junior Bridesmaids and Flower girls.
Do you charge for travel?
We do not charge for travel within 25 miles of Snohomish. Any towns 25 or more miles outside these cities are subject to a charge of $0.55/ mile.
What is in the touchup kit that I receive at my wedding?
You will receive powder, blotting tissues, Q-tips, and bobby pins. If a bride has a particular shade of lipstick she would like to wear, we encourage them to purchase a lipstick/gloss they love at a store of their choice as a touchup for their wedding.
How do I book you or your team?
For all weddings we require a contract, quote, and deposit to secure your date. We are a small team so dates book out suddenly and unexpectedly, we recommend you book as early as possible if you are serious in securing us for your Wedding Day.
If I complete 1 of the 3 items needed to book (contract, quote, deposit), will it you hold my date or let me know if another client wants my date/time?
Unfortunately with the volume of inquiries and bookings we manage, we are not able to hold any dates or inform clients of other potential bookings on their date. The only way to secure out your booking is to successfully complete all 3 items.
Can I wait to book my wedding till after I have my trial?
You may always book a trial at any point without securing your date. However, keep in mind that your wedding date can be booked by another bride if it is not secured.
How many artists will you bring to my wedding/event?
We book artists based on the demands of the wedding. Any party less than 4 makeup/hair packages will receive 1-2 artists, 5-8 packages in a party receives 2 artists, 9-11 packages in a party receives 3 artists, and 12-16 packages in a party receives 4 artists. Please inquire about parties 17 or more.
How long will it take you to do makeup and hair for my party? -or- What time will you need to start the day of my wedding?
Unfortunately, we are not sure of this until we have all the details of your wedding (commute times, how many services you are securing, when your photographer will want you ready by, etc). We can give you a “guesstimate” of timing if you know how many services you are booking and the time you need to be finished with your beauty services, but we will not know for sure till we actually make your wedding day schedule. Beauty schedules are very labor intensive so we usually make them 1 month out from the wedding date, since details are subject to change in the months prior the wedding.
Your contract states that “you cannot take services away from the quote, only add them.” I have 8 girls in my wedding party, 5 are positive they want services, and 3 are not sure. What do I do?
As long as you meet the minimum set for you on your wedding date, we would recommend only securing the services you are positive on. This way you will not be financially responsible for any empty bookings.
Can I add services later?
As long as we still have the availability, you absolutely may. Please let us know ASAP when you are ready to add services. We book out the day based on timing of the artists and services requested, so availability can change quickly and unexpectedly.
What if I do not know how I want my makeup and hair for my wedding? Will you help me?
We would love to help you! We will ask you questions based on your personal style, color palette, mood of the wedding, comfort level and taste. From there, we will make recommendations that will be flattering for your skin tone, hair type/color, eye shape, etc.
Is there a "minimum" to book you and your team?
During the months of April-October, there is a minimum of four (4) adult makeup AND hair services that are required in order to book that day. Once you have met the minimum, you are welcome to add just makeup or just services, as long as time and availability permits.
