What is mineral makeup?

Rather than being oil or petroleum-based, true mineral makeup is made of earthen minerals, milled to a very fine powder.

Why is mineral makeup better than traditional makeup?

Mineral cosmetics reflect light – like millions of tiny diamond mirrors – to hide fine lines and discolorations. Unlike traditional cosmetics, which coat the skin with a layer of film, mineral makeup allows your skin to breathe and function naturally. In fact, our mineral makeup line was originally developed for use in a medical setting, to help patients’ skin breathe and heal after harsh surgical procedures. High quality mineral makeup should not clog pores, and should feel like you have no makeup on at all. It should contain no synthetic or irritating ingredients, such as alcohol, artificial fragrance, mineral oil, talc, or petroleum.

How long will my appointment take?

An average beauty or natural look should take 30 to 40 minutes max. A more fashion or glamour look should take 45 minutes, an hour tops.

How long will the makeup last?

A: We use only the finest high quality makeup products and brushes. The makeup application is designed to last throughout your entire wedding day.

How should I prepare for my appointment?

Please make sure your face is completely clean and free of any makeup or mascara before the makeup artist arrives.
