Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Hire A Makeup Artist?


There are so many things to worry about on your wedding day; What your makeup will look like? Who is going to do it? Will it last? Will it photograph well? Shouldn't be a concern. Makeup is one of the few things that will dictate how well your pictures come out. Hiring a professional makeup artist will give you the peace of mind that you and your bridesmaids will look flawless on and off camera. Ashley's experience in the industry has made her an expert at choosing the right foundation color, picking the right colors to go with your skintone, and ensuring it photographs well.




Does Ashley Do Hair?


Ashley is certified in makeup and that is her specialty. Because of this, she does not do braids and up dos. If you are interested in a recommendation for bridal hairstylists, Ashley has worked with many that she trusts to refer, and will be glad to put you in touch with them. However, Ashley prefers that her clients choose their own stylists based on their wants and needs for their preferred bridal hair look. Ashley has found in her working experience that when you choose two artists that are specialized in their own craft, you will get the best result.




How Do I Book Ashley For My Date?


Once you decide to book, a signed contract and a $150 deposit will secure your date. The remaining balance is due the day of the wedding. Please note that dates are booked on a first come, first serve basis, and will not be final until a contract and deposit are received. A verbal agreement via email/phone will not be sufficient to book your date.




Does Ashley Travel To Me?


Ashley's bridal packages are tailored to make everything as easy as possible for the bride. Her services include having your wedding day makeup done in the comfort of your home or hotel room.




Does Ashley Provide Airbrush Makeup?


Ashley prefers using traditional makeup because she finds that it is easier to manipulate to get the same, if not better, result than airbrush. She will be glad to go over all of her thoughts on airbrush at your consultation.




What Kind Of Makeup Does Ashley Carry In Her Kit?


Ashley does not carry one specific brand of makeup in her kit. She has tried and tested hundreds of products and has chosen the very best for her clients. She carries everything from MAC, NARS, Anatasia Beverly Hills, A.J. Crimson, Cover FX, and much more!




Can I Use My Bridal Trial As My Engagement Shoot Makeup?


Yes, Please allow 2 hours so that Ashley has enough time to go over details for the wedding.




Does Ashley Charge A Travel Fee?


For weddings taking place outside of Broward County, there will be a $25 travel fee plus the cost of parking, if your hotel does not offer free parking.




Does Ashley Do Touch Ups?


Ashley's makeup applications last all day/night. Many of her brides do not require any touch ups. She recommends that you bring your face powder to touch up your nose if you are get oily and your choice of lipstick or gloss to reapply after you eat.




What Is A Bridal Trial?


Simply put, a bridal trial is a consultation designed for you to try out the makeup look you've envisioned for your big day! It is also an opportunity for you to meet Ashley and get to know her. Please keep in mind, the bridal trial is separate from your wedding day in that it is treated as a seperate makeup appointment, therefore the bridal trial fee is paid at the conclusion of the appointment. These appointments usually last anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. If you would like to set up a bridal trial with me, please select "Book Online."
