How far in advance should I book my wedding?
Our brides usually book, on average, about 6-9 months out from their wedding date. It ranges between 1 month - 2 years though so don't wait too long!
Are you willing to travel for my wedding?
YES! A travel fee applies to most areas outside of Northern Virginia, but Laura loves to travel!
What products do you use?
Laura uses a variety of high-quality, professional-grade brands based on what works best for your skin type. A few of her favorites include Makeup Forever, RCMA, Becca, and Hourglass. Airbrush is not provided at this time.
This is a big one! Your trial is the time when you get to sit down with Laura and nail down your bridal look for the big day. You'll talk about your dress, wedding colors, style/theme of the wedding, and how you envision yourself looking on your wedding day. Laura will make suggestions and together you'll create your perfect bridal look.
Should I do a trial before my wedding?
Bridal makeup is much different than your everyday makeup. It needs to last through several hours of sweat, tears, and possibly even cake being smashed in your face. Hiring a professional that specializes in bridal makeup will have you looking flawless in photos that you will look back on the rest of your life, not to mention you'll get pampered, look and feel your best, and not have to worry about applying your own makeup on one of the biggest days of your life!
Why should I hire a professional makeup artist?
Absolutely! Laura has worked with several incredibly talented hairstylists in the wedding industry and would be happy to make recommendations.
