When should I get my consultation?
About one month before the wedding, maybe a little sooner if you are planning on having multiple consultations.
How long does it take to do the makeup on the wedding day?
About 30-45 minutes per person depending on the look you are going for and special application requests. However, if you have the time available, I like to book one hour per service. This gives a little wiggle room for the unexpected.
Do you travel to outer islands?
Yes, we can travel to outer islands. However, there is an additional travel fee plus expenses.
Do you come to me or do I come to you?
We do the majority of our work on location. That includes all weddings, special events and consultations. We can always make special arrangements if needed.
Do you work with assistants or is it just you?
Depending on the number of people and time constraints, I may or may not bring an assistant. Usually for bridal parties of 3 or more, I bring at least one assistant.
How early can you start?
I’m not the biggest fan of waking up at 2 am, but for those sunrise weddings… you gotta do it! Pretty much anything can be arranged, from late night events to early morning weddings.
Can you stay after the original application for touch-ups?
I can always stay after the first round of make-up to do touch-ups. After we are done with the make-up, it turns into an hourly fee of $50. For those weddings taking pictures after the ceremony, I do suggest staying for touch-ups.
What kind of make-up do you use?
We have recently updated our kits to include Motives Cosmetics. Motives is the newest line of custom cosmetics to hit hawaii. With Motives we are able to custom blend liquid foundations and powders specifically for your skin. This way we can guarantee a perfect match for your big day.

Will the make-up last all night?
For the most part, the make-up will last through all of the tears until the end of the night or whenever you decide to take it off. There are however certain things that do require a little attention throughout the night. Nothing that a little blot powder and lip gloss can’t handle.
Will you apply my personal products for me?
I can most certainly apply any personal products that you have for you. If there is something that you just can’t live without and I don’t have it in my kit, of course I will apply it for you. On the other hand, if you are worried about sanitation of the products and brushes, we ALWAYS sanitize every product and brush used on the face before and after each person. Disposable lip and mascara wands are also used to ensure that all products are squeaky clean between girls.
What can I use to touch-up after you leave?
During the consultation we will go over all of the products used and which ones you might want to go and purchase for touch-ups on the wedding day. For the most part, all I suggest you purchase is the lip products (liner, lipstick, gloss) and a blot powder.
