Makeup Application

Makeup Application Services

As a makeup artist, the makeup brand that I use exclusively is Laura Mercier. Laura was trained as a fine art painter, therefore, she understands color and depth.  The makeup looks very natural, is high quality, long lasting and photographs beautifully.  Makeup application, especially on your wedding day is a wonderful experience. It gives you a chance to sit, relax and be pampered before the ceremony.  Most importantly, you will have no worries about your makeup lasting throughout your wedding day experience (and looking gorgeous for photos!). As an added bonus, I am there on hand through out the day for lipstick touch-ups.

Wedding day makeup application for the bride takes about one hour (individual eyelash application and touch ups for chest and back are included when needed). I prefer to only apply the bride’s makeup before starting photography coverage in order to keep things running on time. Subject to availability, a professional associate artist is available for bridal party makeup application (three person minimum and she also uses Mercier products).

Bridal portrait or Portraiture session application is also available. The fee for makeup application, either on the wedding day or for any portraiture session is $200. Application for portraiture is just as extensive as wedding day makeup and takes the same amount of time, about one hour.

Makeup consultations are very rarely needed, because I custom mix the makeup to match your skin tone exactly and this is often done without meeting a bride in person before the wedding day! However consultations are available for a fee of $125 (30 min.) for those who feel more comfortable first having a trial run. For more information, please email me,
