+ What skincare and makeup products do you use?
Katalina uses products from various luxury brands, such as Tom Ford Beauty, Chanel, and Armani. Per request, Katalina will use your personal skincare and makeup products.
+ I've never worn airbrush makeup. How does it work and why should I use it?
Airbrush makeup is especially popular for weddings where the bride and groom will be recorded by high-definition equipment. The airbrush foundation that Katalina uses is water, heat, and transfer resistant. It gives the skin a natural, luminous finish no matter what level of coverage you desire. Airbrush foundation can hide skin blemishes, redness, age spots, and acne scars without appearing "caked on" like some traditional full-coverage foundations.
+ Why book a wedding trial?
When you book a wedding trial, you receive ONE FULL HOUR of service in the privacy of your desired location. Once you confirm your look, Katalina will have your style photographed and saved for reference on the day of your event.
+ How do I get ready for the appointment?
To expedite your appointment, Katalina asks that guests scheduled for makeup are ready with a clean and moisturized face. For blowouts, she asks that guests have freshly washed, wet hair when the artist arrives. For long-lasting results on all other hairstyles (i.e., updos, classic down styles), please wash hair the day before your scheduled appointment.
+ How long will my appointment last?
Hair and makeup services generally require an hour each. *Extra long or thick locks may take extra time, depending on the desired look.
+ What if I am running late?
If you are delayed beyond 15 minutes and Katalina is available to stay, you will be charged a rate of $50 per half hour for the additional time. Please contact Katalina if you will be running late or need to push your appointment. If she is not booked directly following your appointment, she will do her best to accommodate your schedule for the additional fee.
