Frequently Asked BRIDAL Questions
We recognize that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and that your makeup artist should make you feel comfortable and confident on your big day. Faces by Kennery will help to eliminate your worries and ensure that when you leave our hands you feel beautiful and are ready to walk down the aisle and spend the rest of your day having a fabulous time.
Why Should I Hire A Professional Makeup Artist?
First and foremost, you should hire a professional because you are worth it! Making sure that our brides and their wedding party feel pampered and relaxed is a top priority for us.
We know that we are the last team of professionals you will likely see before walking down the aisle, which means that it is our job to make sure you look completely radiant and feel at ease. While you sit with us, close your eyes and let the day be about you.
How do you set your rate?
Hiring a professional makeup artist while thinking of your wedding day budget shouldn't cause additional stress. That's why our pricing is all inclusive*.
We take into account the increasing cost of professional products, staying current with trends through training and education as well as including travel charges*. Keep in mind, when you hire a professional you aren't just hiring their products you are also hiring their experience.
IMPORTANT TIP: A professional will also provide you with a bridal contract to make sure you are both covered in case any changes or disruptions occur. I am regularly contacted throughout the season about the "friend" or "budget" makeup artist who is no longer reachable. Hiring a professional will save you the stress and money that you could incur if you hire only based on price.
WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW ABOUT PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP APPLICATION?
A professional makeup artist knows that makeup on your wedding day will be very different, in many ways, compared to your every day makeup routine. A wedding day tends to bring nerves, tears and sometimes even a bit of sweat depending on the weather. Our makeup is make to last from the first look to the last dance.
Makeup trends will come and go, and although social media leaves many of us feeling informed, a professional makeup artist will be able to walk you through the whole process. We also take your concerns, insecurities and desired look into mind while crafting a makeup look that is timeless and stays true to proper technique and cleanliness.
Proper makeup sanitation is one of the top priorities for professionals and unfortunately something that is too often overlooked by makeup enthusiasts. Since we are servicing many clients throughout the wedding season and even multiple people on one day, we ensure that nothing is transferred between clients without the proper sanitation.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT ON THE DAY?
Letting the stress of day fade in the background is something only a professional makeup artist can help you achieve. It is our job to make sure that the day is centered around you and your dreams. Our promise to you is no double bookings, meaning we are all yours for as long as you need us.
We travel to you so you and your bridal party can relax, have a celebratory sip of bubbly and enjoy the full day together.
You should feel like you can depend on your makeup artist to be there for every detail big or small. That said, it isn't uncommon for us to go above and beyond our duties as makeup artists, from helping a bride into their wedding dress to touching up chipped nail polish, we make it our goal to leave you feeling comfortable and ready to enjoy the rest of your day.
