What exactly is a "makeup trial"?
We discuss your makeup preferences, the style of your dress, the flowers and decor you have chosen for your event. The makeup artist will design a look for you, based on your individual personality and personal style. You will be able to preview your look before your wedding day to see what it looks like at different times of day, and in different types of lighting. Your personal touches, like more blush, or thicker eyeliner are noted and the look is perfected. You will not just like, but love, your wedding day makeup!
Do I need a makeup trial?
Highly recommended. As for any wedding vendor, the least amount of surprises, the better. Brides who like the style they see on this website and are confident, will book first and do a trial later. It’s up to you. It’s a good idea to book a trial sometime before the wedding day, either before booking the date, or after.
How far in advance should I schedule a makeup trial?
Makeup artists can be booked six months to a year in advance, depending on the month. Scheduling a trial and consultation well in advance is a great idea.
How long does a makeup trial and consultation take?
Allow an hour and a half.
Where does the appointment take place?
At your location. Within the city of Chicago, North Shore, and surrounding suburbs. No travel fees. Please contact Fine Makeup Art for longer distances and destination weddings. Travel fees may apply.
Is the Trial included in the Wedding Package?
The trial and consultation is seperate, and paid at that time.
Can You Stay for Touch-ups?
Certainly. Please contact me for rates.
Do you specialize in wedding makeup?
In addition to my work in tv/photo, my Wedding work has been published and/or mentioned in Modern Luxury Weddings, BRIDES Magazine, Grace Ormond Wedding Style, advertising for The Peninsula Hotel Weddings, Modern Weddings Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, Refinery 29, and a preferred vendor of Kleinfeld NYC (“Say Yes To The Dress”). Fine Makeup Art & Associates are a preferred vendor at many Michigan Avenue Hotels.
Each member of my team has 15+ years of experience of making Brides beautiful!
How long will the makeup last?
The makeup will last at least 12 hours. Some of my clients have told me they woke up the next day with perfect makeup! Lol!
More importantly, your makeup will look fresh and natural. The foundation is barely visible.
You may have to touchup your lip color and blot powder later in the evening. The makeup is really designed to be very low maintenance.
Relax and enjoy the day!
