frequently asked questions...
WHY SHOULD I HIRE ANNE-MARIE MITCHELL MAKEUP ARTISTRY?
Award-winning & with over 5 + years experience in bridal and special events, I have created countless breathtaking looks ranging from natural and classic to dramatic and sultry. Hiring a Professional Makeup Artist ensures you can relax and takes the guess work out of doing it yourself. I am here to protect your photography investment by using my expertise to choose the best professional products and colors to enhance your natural beauty. If you are hesitant, ask yourself this: How much are you spending on your bouquet? Your bouquet will be in roughly 10-20% of all wedding photos. Your face will be in 100% of them!
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY TRIAL?
Besides your lovely self, I encourage you to bring any photos or inspiration/ideas you may have so I can get to know your style of makeup and help you create your wedding day vision. I ask that all brides please bring a filled out, signed copy of their contract and retainer. If you have any preferred products you would like to bring due to allergy concerns, I welcome that as well. Trials are usually 1 to 1.5 hour(s).
Airbrush makeup is definitely the most natural looking in person and on camera of any “foundation” product you could choose on the market today. I use the TEMPTU Professional Airbrush System which is used by Emmy award-winning makeup artists. My clients always remark how light and airy the airbrush foundation feels on the skin. Silicone-based, the foundations impart a soft-focus effect for a flawless finish. Pores and fine lines are minimized to give you a healthy, radiant look. It lends a natural youthful glow that looks like true skin. This formula is enduring and long-lasting–ideal for weddings when the longevity of your makeup is truly tested.
WILL MY MAKEUP LAST ALL DAY?
My makeovers hold up through hours of sunlight, humidity, kissing and dancing. You’ll have timeless, stunning photographs to enjoy for years to come. I use the industry’s best primers, setting sprays and waterproof products to ensure your makeup stays comfortable and stunning all day/night.
WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
I am constantly researching and testing the latest products on the market to ensure that only the highest-quality, most enduring products are in my kit. The professional and high-end brands I use include: TEMPTU Airbrush, MAC, Urban Decay, Tarte, NARS, Inglot, RCMA, Ben Nye, Embryolisse and Cinema Secrets. I also regularly attend makeup seminars, classes and trade shows to continually increase my skill level and remain at the forefront of the cosmetic industry.
WHEN/HOW CAN I BOOK YOUR MAKEUP SERVICES?
I typically book weddings anywhere from 3-12 months in advance but also remain flexible to book weddings for the “last-minute planner” and those with “the early bird catches the worm” mentality. To book makeup services for your wedding day: please call, email or fill out a contact form with details of your wedding. *A signed contract/deposit is required to officially hold down any wedding date.
I HAVE A LARGE BRIDAL PARTY, ARE YOU ABLE TO DO MAKEUP FOR ALL OF US?
I am able to comfortably apply makeup to about 10 women in one wedding day without an assistant. However, if you have more applications needed then I will gladly assist you in finding another makeup artist with similar work (so that all photos look cohesive) to assist me that day/serve as a second artist.
I HAVE A SMALL BRIDAL PARTY, DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM?
I believe bridal parties of all sizes should be pampered! I do not have a minimum, but tiered pricing based on how many applications needed.
DO YOU PROVIDE HAIRSTYLING SERVICES?
While I specifically provide makeup services, I am partnered with some of the best hairstylists in the industry and would be happy to get you in contact with them for your big day.
HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?
I travel on-location up to 2 hours outside the Jacksonville Beach area. I service Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Nocatee, Amelia Island, Gainesville, Orlando and surrounding areas. I also do some destination weddings but please note that all travel and T & E must be paid for per diem, by the signer of the bridal makeup contract.
DO YOU HAVE ANY HELPFUL TIPS BEFORE THE WEDDING?
Yes! I am a blogger at heart and love offering tips to my brides and readers! Check out the blog posts below:
