Do You Provide On Location Makeup Services?
All Bridal Trial Makeup Applications, Special Event Makeup Applications, and SFX Makeup Applications will take place at Holliewood Brows & Beauty in Calabash, NC.
We will travel for Wedding Day Makeup Applications as long as the location of where the bride and bridal party is getting ready is in a safe and clean environment (the wedding venue is preferable, hotel, beach house, resort, etc.) On location makeup services will acquire additional fees.
Do You Do Hair Too?
No. I am a South Carolina and North Carolina state licensed esthetician; therefore, hair styling is not covered under my scope of practice. I specialize in microblading, powder and combo brows, and makeup!
Can I Bring My Own False Eyelashes? What If I Have Eyelash Extensions?
You may bring your own false eyelashes to be applied during your makeup application at the discretion of the makeup artist; However, your lashes must be brand new, unused, and in it's original unopened packaging. The makeup artist will review the overall look and make suggestions accordingly.
If you arrive for a makeup appointment and you have pre existing eyelash extensions that were applied by another artist, false eyelashes (strip or individual) will not be applied or offered. Mascara will not be applied. We will not use any products that might ruin the integrity of the lash extensions. An agreement can be put in place in writing between yourself and the makeup artist that you requested the application any of the products mentioned above and you understand if your lash extensions are compromised, the client is at fault.
When should I get my waxing done before a makeup service?
If you are planning on having waxing done (eyebrows, upper lip etc.) this should be scheduled at least a week or 3 days before the wedding or makeup service in case of irritation. Makeup won’t sit well on a freshly waxed face.
What Should I Wear To My Makeup Service?
If you can, wear a button down shirt or a top with a wide neck, so that you don’t have any issues with damaging hair/makeup when you are changing into your wedding dress or special occasion outfit.
How Should I Prepare For My Makeup Service?
Please arrive with a makeup-free, cleansed face. Please feel free to bring along any photos, magazine clips, and Pinterest images of makeup you’d like me to review.
Can I Bring Someone With Me To My Appointment?
Sure! Feel free to bring along a friend or family member for a second opinion and support. Please be sure to bring additional supervision if your child is accompanying you.
When should I schedule a trial?
As soon as possible! We recommend for you to schedule your trial at least 3-6 months before your wedding. You will need to request a booking day and time on our "Services" page and we will accept your booking as long as we have the availability. On the date of your trial, we will go over your overall makeup goals and perform a full makeup application as if it was your wedding day.
***All Bridal Trial Makeup Applications will be performed at Holliewood Brows & Beauty in Calabash, NC***
Will my wedding date be secured when I book my trial?
No. Your Bridal Trial Makeup Application will not secure Holliewood Brows & Beauty as a makeup artist for your wedding date. Your wedding day makeup application will be booked separately. We only book up to 3 months in advance for wedding day makeup applications. Your wedding day makeup application will be booked and secured after the booking agreement has been signed and returned back and the booking deposit has been paid.
How do I book you for my wedding day makeup?
You will need to fill our your booking request form under the "Bridal - Wedding Day Makeup" service that is listed under the "services" tab. You will be asked a few questions at the top of the booking form such as "where is your ceremony location?", "where is your getting ready location?", "how may members of your bridal party will be needing makeup application?". Please answer these questions in detail and with accurate information as your answers will determine what your total cost of services will be. After you have submitted your booking request form, you will receive an email reply back from me in 48-72 hours confirming whether or not I have your date available, a cost breakdown, and I'll ask you additional questions if needed. If you decide to book me as your makeup artist for your wedding day, I will send you an invoice via email to collect a NON-REFUNDABLE booking deposit as well as a digital contract. This deposit and contract is what will secure your wedding date with me so that it is not available for anybody else to book. The deposit will be 20% of the total cost of services and the remaining balance will be due on the wedding day.
The remaining balance can be paid by one person or by each member of the bridal party receiving makeup services. I accept all major credit and debit cards as well as cash. Checks and phone payment applications (Zelle, Cashapp, Venmo, Paypal, etc.) are NOT accepted.
How far in advance can I book you for my wedding day makeup?
We are currently booking no more than 3 months / 90 days in advance. Special requests may be accommodated depending on date and time of the event. Just ask!
Do you charge any travel or on location fees?
Yes. Unlike most freelance makeup artists, I perform most of my services at my studio that I rent. Most artists don't have an additional overhead cost as they do most of their behind the scenes work and makeup trials from home without a studio set up.
On Location Service Fee: $30.00
Travel Fee: 0.80 cents per mile from Holliewood Brows & Beauty to and from getting ready location
Will you provide an assistant if necessary?
Makeup application is performed on one client at a time according to the date and time for which the appointment was booked. Holliewood Brows & Beauty is owned and operated by one person and one makeup artist; therefore, scheduling is coordinated based on the number of makeup applications that can fit within the hours of operation for a specific day and for one artist.
Hollie can accommodate no more than 5 makeup applications within a 6 hour window. Enough time needs to be accommodated for makeup application start time to ceremony start time. Scheduling breakdown will be coordinated with the bride after wedding day makeup application has been booked and within 1 month before the wedding.
