Can I see a Wedding Price List? Check the Wedding Prices and Packages HERE!
Is there a minimum number of people required to secure a booking? During wedding season – April – Oct, yes there is a 4-5 services (Makeup/Hair) minimum required. However, depending on scheduling, exceptions can be made.
Are there any travel fees? There are NO travel fees for areas within GTA. There may be additional travel fees for areas outside of GTA. Contact Mika to find out the specific fees.
There is NO Parking Fees at hotels/ venues
Do you do Sunday Weddings and Early Mornings? Yes, I do Sunday weddings and there are no additional fees for early morning start times.
If I don’t get false eyelashes will it cost less? No, forgoing lashes doesn’t change the price. I believe even the most natural false lash can really add something to the makeup. It’s the best way to create a bit of attention at the eyes without the overuse of makeup.
Do I have to get a trial? A trial is highly recommended but it really is up to you the client.
It is also important to remember a trial is essentailly a chance to try out your potential wedding look and see how it holds up for the day or if there are any adjustments in style or colours that need to be made. Wedding days can be very stressful but having your hair and makeup look already decided on can take a lot of the stress and guesswork out of the wedding day, allowing you to relax and enjoy your time with your friends and family.
What forms of payment are accepted? For the deposit and/or trial fees, cheque, cash, Interac e-transfer are the preferred methods. On the day of the wedding the remaining balance is due in cash or Interac e-transfer. Please have the remaining balance collected prior to the end of the completion of the Makeup & Hair services. The last thing you want to do is worry about the stress of collecting money from everyone right before it’s time for you to get into your wedding dress.
Am I suppose to tip on the wedding day? That really is a personal thing. While it is always nice to receive tips as a sign of appreciation on the wedding day it is in no way expected or necessary.
How should my bridal party and I prepare for the wedding day? It is important to always be ready to sit down for one’s services at their scheduled time. For makeup that means having a clean face. For hair, please have it product free (the only exception is any de-frizz products for curly hair as long as they don’t make the hair crunchy) and dry. If your hair is on the fine side and it tends to get greasy easily, please have it washed and dried that day. If your hair is coarser or drier, washing it the day before is fine.
Is there anything you need for set up at the house/hotel the day of the wedding? Somewhere near natural light is always best (kitchens or dining rooms are often good). The room also has to have outlets and/or an extension cord to plug styling appliances into if doing hair. A table and chairs are also required for set up. For makeup, a higher style chair or bar stool is nice if available but not absolutely necessary. For hair, a regular chair is fine, preferably one with a lower back.

What is Airbrush Makeup? Is it better? Airbrush makeup is makeup sprayed onto the skin using an airbrush instead of being applied with sponges, brushes, fingers, or other methods. In recent years it has also been gaining popularity among brides who wants the look of a flawless face without the feeling of wearing heavy foundation or makeup. Airbrush makeup has a long lasting finish, is water resistant and can last from 12-24 hours making it an ideal choice for brides on their wedding day.
Like anything in makeup airbrush is at the end of the day just another technique and depending on who is applying it it can be good or it can be bad. For some it may be the perfect choice on their wedding day because they may have a lot of acne scarring or think they may cry a lot while for others they may not feel it necessary. No matter what the choice – Airbrush or Traditional foundation application I promise you a base that will be even, glowing and look great for the entire day and evening!
