I tried to include a variety of FAQs, but if you still have questions after going through the FAQs, please get in touch with me through email and I’ll answer any questions you have. I am happy to hear from you, and would love to work together.
WHY SHOULD I BOOK A PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP ARTIST?
You will spend a large amount of money for everything that goes into your perfect wedding day! You will want to make sure you look show stopping but yourself on one of the most important days of your life!
Booking a professional makeup artist is one of the best investments you can make for your wedding day!
When you hire a professional makeup artist, you're not just paying someone for the makeup application. You are paying for experience, education, knowledge, and product. You are also paying to make sure you look STUNNING in your wedding photos, that you will have for the rest of your life!
It's my job as your makeup artist to enhance your natural beauty as and of course making sure your day is stress free!
DO YOU CHARGE A DEPOSIT?
I require a $200 non-refundable deposit to secure your wedding date!
The $200 deposit will not only secure your wedding date, but cover the cost for your wedding day look & your trial!
I require a $50 non-refundable deposit to secure your appointment!
The $50 deposit will not only secure your appointment, but will then be applied to the remainder of the service balance!
WHAT ABOUT MY BRIDAL TRIAL?
Trials are not required for brides, but HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Trials are held Mondays, Tuesdays & Wednesdays starting at 5:30p. Trials should be scheduled 2-4 months prior to wedding date. They are available for their bridal party members, including but not limited too, bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and groom, grandmothers, extended family members, guest speakers, etc.
Please understand that without a trial I cannot guarantee wedding day satisfaction.
Trials take place at my in-home studio. My in-home studio is 528 Arlington Street Lykens, PA 17048.
I highly recommend providing photos and/or examples to our artist.
Arrive with skin cleansed and moisturized. If the bride is not satisfied with their first consultation, they may request an additional one at regular cost.
NOTE: NO guests may attend your trial/studio appointment (unless a minor or medically required). This is due to multiple reasons, some include, COVID, opinion of others on clients look, studio is in my home, etc. This also means NO bathroom access.
HOW CAN I REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT OR A BRIDAL QUOTE?
Please complete the bridal inquiry form and include your information including the date of event, how many people will need services, what services are needed, the address of the get ready location, and the end time for services for a detailed quote.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Yes! I will travel up to 2 hours from my studio for your event or wedding before requiring a hotel room!
*You will be responsible for any and all parking fees, tolls, and hotel accommodations if applicable.
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?
My studio is at 528 Arlington St Lykens PA 17048.
It is located in my home so there will be no bathroom access. Please plan accordingly.
Kind reminder that you MAY NOT bring guests unless you're a minor or have a disability.
DO YOU REQUIRE A CONTRACT?
Yes. You must provide a signed contract and paid deposit in order to secure your wedding date.
WHERE CAN I PARK?
You can park in the parking spot across from my driveway/garage.
When you pull onto my street, stop at the stop sign, turn right, and immediately to your left is about 5 parking spots.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Each service typically takes 45 minutes. For timeline/scheduling, I block out a full 45 minutes.
Bridal Trials take an hour or more due to discussing bridal look.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANY PRODUCTS?
You do not need to bring any of your own makeup products unless you have something specific you would like me to use.
I will provide all products.
DO YOU DO AIRBRUSH MAKEUP?
No. You can achieve the same results or even better with traditional foundations. Products these days are formulated to last. You do not need to have airbrush makeup to have long lasting makeup! I also do not like how it appears on my clients skin. This is a personal preference.
All products and brushes are kept sanitary. For each client, I use a fresh set of clean brushes. Also between each client, I spray all products with antiseptic. After each event, a full kit cleaning and brush deep clean happens.
Any allergies and/or skin conditions should be reported by the client to Savage Beauty prior to application and, if need be, a sample test of makeup may be performed on the skin to test reaction. Client(s) agree to release the makeup artist (Devon Savage aka Savage Beauty) from liability for any skin complications due to allergic reactions.
Also due to this clause, I am not able to tweeze or razor eyebrows.
Photos taken at your appointment, the trial, wedding day and/or your professional photos may be used as examples of my work for future clients to view. You agree to me using these photos, as well as give consent to using your professional photos on my website/portfolio/social media.
