VBP: What brands of products do you use?
Krystie Ann: I use a variety of products from MAC, CARGO, Smashbox, Urban Decay. A wide variety of professional products – including my own personal lip gloss line!
VBP: How do I keep my makeup fresh for the whole day?
Krystie Ann: Using a professional grade product, in addition to a professional primer and setting spray will help your makeup last all day. I also recommend carrying a translucent powder or blotting papers to help keep your skin matte in humid conditions.
VBP: I have some skin issues, what options would you have for me?
Krystie Ann: It all depends on your skin issues. Some clients have special requirements or allergies and may use their own products. The products I use are all non-comedogenic, some are even vegan. It’s always best to let any person working on your skin to know any allergies in advance.
VBP: What size of bridal party can you accommodate?
Krystie Ann: It doesn’t matter to me! :) It depends on the timing of your ceremony – and photos – and how early your party is willing to get up! My largest party was 13 ladies!
VBP: How long will it take?
Krystie Ann: Makeup is approx 30 min per person, and hair is approx 45 min person – but it also depends on the needs and requirements of the party.
VBP: Do you provide a trial run?
Krystie Ann: I can provide a trial absolutely! It is at an additional cost but it does help take the guesswork out of the day! It is also a great opportunity to meet my brides before the big day! For those that aren’t able to book a trial – I schedule Skype consultations with my brides that have booked with me – and about one month before your big day we can chat about all of your final details and your special bridal look!
VBP: If I love one of your products, are they for sale?
Krystie Ann: The only products I sell are the lip glosses. But for any other products I can always leave my clients with a where to buy list!
VBP: I am not sure what hair style to pick for my special day – there are so many ideas and options on Pinterest!
Krystie Ann: I recommend choosing a few options – both up and down styles. Finalizing your perfect look will really depend on the weather that day – and your hair type and texture. If it is a super windy, or rainy day – you may not want to have all of your hair down. On the day of I do a thorough consultation with my brides and we always come up with the perfect look!
