Do you offer airbrush makeup?

Not at this time. We will be offering this service in the future.


Should I bring my own makeup for you to use?

Absolutely NOT! We take sanitation very seriously! All of the items in our kits have been disinfected and sanitized per cosmetology board standards.


Do I have to wear eyelashes? They scare me

Your eyes are the focal point of your face and embellishing them is definitely worth it! Although eyelashes are optional, we encourage EVERYONE to wear them. They add definition and dimension to your eyes and enhance the structure of your face. We offer several styles and many lengths to accommodate every eye shape. Although they aren’t necessary, they look absolutely fabulous if you are taking pictures. They will not pull out your natural lashes and we use glue made specifically for lashes. Can you tell the difference in the picture below?
