Frequently asked questions

What areas do you service?

NMB Makeup Artistry covers all areas in Upstate NY. Travel fees may apply. The cost will vary depending on distance and on location parking fees are not included and must be covered by client.

When should I book my wedding appointment?

The best time to book for your wedding day would be 6-9 months prior- however, the sooner the better! I tend to book up to a year in advance. The months in my calender that tend to book up first are May-October.

Do you travel for destination weddings?

Yes! Airfare, accommodations, transportation, and any other travel fees will apply.

How do I book?

Please send an email (you can click on the 'Contact' menu link) or you can send a Facebook message. A signed contract must be signed in order to reserve your date.

Is a trial necessary?

A trial is highly recommended. This ensures you have the perfect look for your wedding day! This also provides the opportunity for the artist and client to collaborate and share ideas on any improvements and/or changes pertaining to the bridal look for the wedding day. Pictures of inspirational looks are also very helpful! I recommend having a trial within a couple of months of your wedding when you have the best idea of what you are picturing yourself as. **Please note: if you want a trial done prior to signing a contract that is no problem however, a trial does not hold your date.

How do I prepare for my trial?

*Please let the artist know if you are allergic to any products *Come with a clean, makeup free face *You may bring pictures of inspiration *Trial will take approximately 1 hour

What if after signing the contract the exact number needed for makeup services is still undetermined?

Do you offer airbrush foundation?

Unfortunately, I do not offer airbrush makeup as I prefer traditional makeup.

Can you accommodate a large bridal party?

Yes- as long as time allows! There is a minimum of 5 required to book your wedding day with a max of 12 persons I am able to do.

Can you stay for touch ups?

I never rush to leave- if you're interested in having me stay for photos or have me on hand after the first tears, although not necessary, additional touch ups is $50/hour (for this- it has to be known to the artist at least a month in advance). Heres a couple of tips: *Have your favorite lipstick or lipgloss on hand *Tap any tears. Dont wipe!

Why should I book a professional MUA?

Booking a professional makeup artist is not only important but one of the best investments you can make for any occasion- especially your wedding day! When you hire a MUA, not only are you paying for your service but for our experience, education, knowledge and for the products used. As a professional MUA, we make sure to stay on schedule for the day, applying the right products that cater to everyones individual skin needs and most importantly, make your day stress free!
