ANSWERS TO YOUR BEAUTY WONDERINGS

What can I expect from our bridal preview appointment? 

During a preview we get to know each other and discuss the theme and vibe of your wedding. I will execute your look after having an open conversation to achieve exactly what you envision and celebrates your unique beauty.

What if I forgo an in-person bridal preview?

I do recommend a preview appointment as it gives an assured and comfortable feeling on your wedding day. However I know that doing a preview may not be always possible. In lieu of an in person meeting we will have a phone consultation to discuss your beauty desires and concerns as well as any you might have for your bridal party.

How Should I prepare for our appointment?

 

Please have clean dry hair free from heavy conditioners or hair masks as well as a makeup free face (lightly moisturized is ok).

How do I prep my skin leading up to the wedding day?

 

Beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin! Professional facials and a good home skin care ritual are the key to having the best and brightest skin on your wedding day. If you are local to Missoula please come see me at Thesis Skincare to begin your bridal beauty journey. There I can cater your treatment to your skin's needs. 

How should I plan my wedding day timeline for the makeup?

On the morning of, I plan to arrive 30 min before the start time to settle in and set up my station.

I ask for 1 hr for each service. Hair and Makeup = 2 services. I find that a 1 hour window makes for the most relaxed time frame and provides a cushion in case of late arrivals (up to 15 mins).  To determine the "start time", I count backwards from your "makeup completion" time, which tends to be determined by your photographer +/or wedding planner.

Do you beautify large wedding parties by yourself ?

For parties of 6+, I contract additional support to accommodate the requested service total from one of my amazing artists. This will help the flow of the morning and will allow the timeline to be stress-free & shortened with the larger party.
