FAQ

Q. What is Airbrush Makeup

A. Airbrushed makeup gives a long wearing application lasting approximately 12 hours, is waterproof and gives an incredibly flawless appearance.   


It's so light that you don't have to use lots of it to get a full coverage.

Q. Trial Makeup

A. We suggest a trial appointment for any brides.

Here we can discuss your needs, different looks and colours that might be best suited to your features, dress and overall setting.  Once we're sure you’re absolutely happy with your look we record all the details to ensure the exact look can be reproduced on your wedding day.

A trial of your make-up is recommended at least 4 weeks prior to your wedding day. At the trial session it is typical to discuss your wedding theme including colour schemes, hair styles, accessories, bridesmaids styles etc. so we can fully understand the overall look you want to achieve.

The trial is also important to make sure that your skin is not sensitive towards any of the products used and also comfortable to wear for extended hours.

Q. What if at the end of trial session I’m not happy with the make up? 

A. After your trial you are under no obligation to make a confirmed booking.  

Q. The Wedding Day 

A. The aim is to highlight and enhance your natural beauty and to ensure your make-up remains flawless for the duration of the event.

Your makeup will be applied to compliment your features while keeping in line with what you want for your perfect day.  My team and I use only the highest quality products to achieve this.  

Please ensure everyone has clean faces completely free of any makeup or mascara residue.

On your wedding day, all you and your bridal party will have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Q. What products do you use? 

A. MAC makeup, NARS, Stila, Bobbi Brown and a selection of other 'go-to' makeup artist products. 

 

Q. How long have you been doing makeup?

Nicole: In 1995 I completed a makeup artist diploma at ‘The Makeup Department’ in Brisbane QLD. This course included application of day, natural, wedding, photographic and fashion makeup. I have been doing makeup since then and have learnt hair styling along the way from working so close with many great hairdressers.

T&C: MAKEUP TRIAL

If at the end of the makeup trial you are not satisfied with the end result, then I will offer you a complimentary makeup trial on another day, but before you leave the studio I will remove the entire makeup including lashes. If you leave happy with the end result and then change your mind once you have left the studio, then full payment will be charged if you decide you would like another trial.
