Frequently Ask Questions

I barely wear makeup. Can you make sure I won’t feel “too made up”?

At your trial, our makeup artists will talk with you about what kind of makeup you’re used to wearing, so that we can create a look for you that won’t feel overdone. We also have products for women who don’t like to wear a lot on their skin, such as tinted moisturizers, which keep the skin feeling light and looking radiant. At your wedding, you will be dressed differently—and more pictures will be taken of you—than on any other day. We will give you makeup that suits those circumstances while making sure that you still feel and look like you.

How do I know my hair and makeup will last throughout my wedding?

It is the oil on your skin that usually causes makeup to wear off, so we use primers that prevent the oil from mixing with your makeup. You also have the option of airbrush makeup, which has a longer-lasting wear, making it especially popular in the hot summer months. And whether the day is hot and humid, windy or rainy, we use the latest top hair products to ensure your hairstyle holds throughout the day and long into the night—while looking totally natural. Because every Once Upon A Bride artist follows a special protocol I developed that emphasizes the preparation stage, by the time you step into your dress you can be confident your hair and makeup will last all day and throughout the night. We do stock lipsticks so that you can purchase the one your artist will be using on the day in case you need to reapply.

What brands of makeup do you use?

We are stocked with the latest and the greatest. You’ll recognize many of your favorite products in our makeup Mac, Sephora, Inglot, Kryolan, Bobbi Brown, and many, many more. We also have secret favorites that we will gladly turn you on to.

What brands of hair products do you use?

We love the high-fashion, luxury Oribe line of conditioning gels, oils, sprays, and skincare-grade shampoos, which are all lightly scented with French perfumes. Our artists have many other favorite brands in their kits—such as Bumble and bumble, Kérastase, and Moroccanoil. We also use Phyto styling products and Phyto botanical therapies for treating stressed, damaged, or problem hair before the wedding day.

I have allergies to certain products. What do you suggest?

Bring in the products that you use at home and we can work with those to create a beautiful, professional look for your wedding day—safe from any allergic reactions. Our artists are very knowledgeable about the latest and greatest products, so they can also suggest hypoallergenic lines you may wish to try.

What about my bridal party?

We offer a special package of discounted rates for the members of your bridal party. Your artists will work with you on the wedding day to create any look you want for your bridal party. You are welcome to bring photos for us or let us do something original and beautiful that complements your look. And if you have a big bridal party, don’t stress: we will bring along an additional stylist.
