FREQUENTLY ASKED MAKEUP QUESTIONS
DO YOU REQUIRE A MINIMUM NUMBER OF SERVICES FOR ON-SITE WEDDINGS?
Yes, Taylor Marie Beauty (TMB) requires a minimum of 4 full makeup applications in order to travel on-site for wedding day services. This may include the bride. If the number of services is less than 4, the bride and her guests are more than welcome to schedule services at the salon studio.
DO YOU CHARGE A TRAVEL FEE FOR WEDDINGS?
TMB artists will travel 20 miles in each direction at no cost. Any mileage beyond that will be charged the standard rate of $0.58 per mile.
HOW FAR ARE YOU WILLING TO TRAVEL FOR WEDDINGS?
When able, TMB artists will travel a significant distance (including out of state), so long as lodging is provided the night prior to the wedding for any travel greater than 2 hours one-way. The standard mileage fee will also apply.
IF I HIRE YOU, WILL YOU USE MY PERSONAL MAKEUP TO COMPLETE THE APPLICATION?
No. All TMB artists come equipped with their own professional makeup kit and are trained in using specific products and techniques. This ensures that the makeup is completed in a timely manner and is done so with products that are guaranteed to last.
WHERE WILL THE TRIAL RUN TAKE PLACE? CAN I BRING MY MOM, MOH, FIANCÉ, ETC?
Trial runs are hosted at the salon studio in Minneapolis, unless otherwise coordinated by you and your assigned artist. You are welcome to bring a guest with you for the trial run, but we do ask that you limit that to 2 people max.
WHAT IF MY MOM OR MY MOH WOULD LIKE A TRIAL RUN AS WELL?
Any one who would like a trial run is welcome to schedule one with a TMB artist. If that person is not the bride, the trial run will be $100 and is non-refundable.
HOW LONG WILL THE MAKEUP TAKE ON THE DAY OF THE WEDDING?
In order to provide each person with a quality experience and to ensure there is a little extra time between services, we will schedule 45 minutes per person for weddings.
WHAT IF THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TIME TO GET EVERYONE READY WITH JUST ONE ARTIST?
We would be happy to discuss a timeline with you and book an assistant to accompany your artist for the day.
I'VE NEVER HAD AIRBRUSH MAKEUP BEFORE AND AM A LITTLE HESITANT. CAN YOU TELL ME WHY YOU WOULD RECOMMEND IT?
We strongly recommend airbrush makeup for weddings, especially for brides. Often, there is a concern that airbrush makeup will feel heavy and/or look cakey, when in fact-- the complete opposite is true. The products we use allow us to create a natural, light-weight look that brides love! Airbrush makeup is also water resistant, meaning it will hold up so much better against sweat and/or tears. Along with this, it photographs beautifully!
WHAT IF ONE OF MY BRIDESMAIDS ONLY WANTS HER EYES DONE AND NOT A FULL APPLICATION?
We do offer a la carte services! Please inquire for more information.
