HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CREATE MY HAIR AND MAKEUP?
-It takes 1-1.5 hours to create makeup for a photo shoot;
-It takes 2-3 hours to create the bride's hair and makeup and + 30 minutes to put on the dress, fix the veil and accessories.
It depends on the length and thickness of the hair and on the complexity of the hair and makeup;
-Assembly of hair and makeup for the event takes 1,5 -2.5 hours;
-Makeup only needs 45 minutes-1 hour 15 minutes depending on brightness;
-Hairstyle only requires 1-2 hours, depending on length, thickness of hair, complexity of hair and the presence of hair extensions;
More exact time can be determined at the trial or at the consultation.
HOW DO I CALCULATE THE TIME TO FINISH MY HAIR AND MAKEUP?
I recommend finishing your makeup and hair 30 minutes before the photo shoot.
If you don't have a bride's morning shoot, I recommend finishing your makeup and hair 30 minutes before you leave the house/hotel.
DO I NEED A HAIR AND MAKEUP TRIAL BEFORE A WEDDING (OR OTHER EVENT)?
If you doubt, what hairstyle to choose; what accessories to choose to the dress; how bright should be the makeup, whether the hairstyle needs hair extensions and a veil; if you want to try a few different options - a trial is necessary: for your peace of mind and confidence that everything will be exactly as you want!
In addition, the trial is a great excuse to get acquainted with the artist; make sure you understand each other and discuss the details of preparation.
HOW LONG BEFORE THE CEREMONY IS THE TRIAL? HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The trial is best held a month before the celebration.
If you wish, the trial can be held at any time earlier.
The trial takes an average of 3 hours, depending on the number of variants being tried.
Sometimes the trial can take 4-5 hours;
There is no need to hurry: if you have an appointment after the trial and you are limited in time, you will be worried that you are late, hurry and will not be able to fully appreciate the master's work.
At the trial we can try from 1 to 3 variants of hair and makeup.
Usually this is enough to decide on the look.
HOW DOES THE TRIAL GO?
At the trial we can try one fully executed look, or quick unfinished mock ups of multiple looks.
-Hair: first I do loose curls/waves, then half up and then updo;
-Makeup: natural first and then I can make it brighter and add different accents.
We'll take all the photos and then you choose the perfect one.
WHAT DO I NEED TO TAKE WITH ME ON THE DAY OF THE RECEPTION TO KEEP MY MAKEUP?
- Blotting paper;
-Transparent face powder with a brush or a compact powder that suits your skin shade;
-Lipstick or lip gloss;
-Mascara. (Choose a tried-and-true favorite mascara. Use your own mascara for hygiene purposes);
If you don't have any of these, don't worry: I have small kits with the necessary products for brides.
Also you can book touch up for the whole day or before evening reception.

HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR TOOLS AND PRODUCTS CLEAN? HOW DO YOU CLEAN YOUR BRUSHES?
Hygiene is extremely important to me, and I ensure all of my tools have been thoroughly cleaned before use.
I use disposable mascara wands and palettes instead of applying products directly out of their containers.
I use disposable sponges.
I I wash my brushes daily with professional cleansers and sanitize all of my tools and brushes between clients using professional-grade alcohol brush cleaner.
For big events with little time, I have spare sets of face and hair brushes.
