What should I bring to my trial?
You should bring a picture of your favorite hair and makeup style and a shirt the same color as your wedding dress. Also bring a picture of your wedding dress and your hair piece/veil if you plan to wear one.
What should I do to reserve my wedding date?
As soon as you have signed a contract with Belle by Marine and provide a 50% deposit, your date is reserved.
How early should I schedule my trial?
It is a good idea to schedule a trial four to six months in advance of your date. However, I try to accommodate brides on short notice when my schedule permits.
What if my date is already reserved?
I work with a very talented group of makeup artists and stylists – if I am personally booked on your date, a member of my team may be available to work with you.
What makeup products do you use?
I use MAC and Makeup Forever for most looks. I also use some products from Benefit, Nix, Estee Lauder and Smashbox. For hair, I mostly use Redken.
How do I prepare for my trial?
Wear your usual makeup so I can get a sense of your style. Your hair should be clean with no conditioner.
Are you available to travel for destination weddings?
Yes! I have done several weddings in France (where I am from) and New York. I am open to any destination.
What if I have a big wedding party?
I work with a talented team of hair and makeup artists. We can accommodate parties of any size.
Do you teach makeup application?
Yes, I do. I go through my clients makeup bag and teach them what they want to learn and how to apply the makeup with simple techniques. I also give my clients a sheet with techniques and shelf life of each makeup product.
