Frequently Asked Questions
The key to a smooth and even makeup application is a great base!! Keeping the skin clean, exfoliated and hydrated will ensure the makeup sits well. Yep, it's really that simple. Most people are aware of that but being consistent with a regimen, along with the odd hormonal breakout, can throw a kink in things.
It's recommend that, in preparation for the big day, you find a regimen that's suited to your skin type and be as consistent as possible for the months leading up to it. Another great option, if it appeals to you and fits into your wedding budget, are facials! It's best to have a trial facial well in advance to the big day to ensure your skin agrees with the products being used and then return for the same facial 3-5 days prior.
How can I ensure a long lasting hair style?
What is the trick to a smooth makeup application?
Whether you plan to wear your hair pinned up, down with an effortless wave or curled to perfection, we prefer you to have 'day old hair'. Washed and blow-dried the night before is best for a long lasting look without having an oily appearance. If your hair tends to be oily or you just prefer a fresh wash to feel good, go for it! We can manage with it being washed morning of since we have products that can 'dirty it up'. All we ask is that it is 100% dry for some time before styling.
Do you offer a trial?
Yes. We offer trials at our studio downtown Kelowna. A trial may be offered at your location should space not be available in the studio at the desired time and the artists is available. Trials are available March through May on specific days.

Trails are a separate service to the day of booking. If you would like a trial we are happy to accommodate you.
Who usually gets a trial?
It is usually the bride that has a trial. There are cases where the mom or a bridesmaid also would like a trial, and that is no problem.
