When should I schedule my preview/trial?
Whenever is most convenient for you. It’s always helpful to schedule this on a day when you are going to a special occasion or photoshoot so you can see how the hair & makeup hold up and photograph.
Do you provide services for large bridal parties?
Yes! Beauty Bespoken is a team of talented, trusted artists that all specialize in natural beauty. For 9 or more people, additional artists or stylists join to ensure everyone finishes beauty services on time. Each additional artist and/or stylist required or requested will be $100 each. For example, if and extra (1) makeup artist and (1 ) hair stylist are needed or requested, $200 would be added to the total wedding day cost.
Who will provide the Bride’s hair and makeup service on the wedding day?
The same artist and stylist the provide your Preview service will also do your hair & makeup on the wedding day. Unless unforeseen circumstances occur. Sarah, the creator of Beauty Bespoken, provides all makeup services and brings along talented hair stylists to provide all hair needs.
Do you provide airbrush makeup? What is airbrush?
Yes! I always carry airbrush makeup with me and can provide this service for an additional charge ($30 extra). Airbrush makeup uses an air compressor to spray makeup onto the skin. I carry the Temptu airbrush system and often use several of their formulas. Depending on your skin type and makeup needs, airbrush may or may not be best for you.
What beauty look do you recommend for my branding photos?
You should always look most like you in your professional photos. Since this will be the first impression your future clients receive of you, it should be accurate and welcoming. This is why we don’t recommend bold, overly dramatic looks (unless this is what you normally wear day to day). Every branding session begins with a consult where we discuss your everyday routine and assess your facial features to create a beauty look that is most flattering and the best, authentic representation of you.
Can you provide touch ups for my photoshoot?
Absolutely—we love joining our clients for their photoshoots! We bring each of the products used in your beauty appointment to your shoot and provide touch ups the entire time. To ensure you look best in each photo taken, we also work closely with your photographer by taking periodic test shots throughout so your hair & makeup looks great on camera and in person.
How do I reserve my wedding date?
All my services are booked on a first come, first serve basis. A signed agreement along with a retainer (50% of the total wedding day cost) is required to reserve your wedding date in the Beauty Bespoken booking calendar.
Do you provide services for out-of-town Brides?
