How far in advance should I book with you?
Whenever you are ready! Although, since all services are booked on a first come, first serve basis. A signed agreement along with a retainer (50% of the total cost) is required to reserve your beauty appointment in the Beauty Bespoken booking calendar.
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.
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.
What kind of products do you use?
All our products are professional grade to ensure your hair & makeup last all day long. We do not limit ourselves to a single brand, rather carry a variety of the best products available.
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.
How long do appointments take?
Where will my beauty service take place?
Either at our studio in San Diego or we can travel to you for an additional cost. All wedding day services take place at the beauty prep location.
What are your travel rates?
All round trip travel up to 40 miles is complimentary. Otherwise $1.00/mile round trip is required. For example, if your beauty prep location is 30 miles (60 miles round trip) from Beauty Bespoken’s home address, the travel charge would be $20.
