  • WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MAKEUP TRIAL AND BRIDAL PREVIEW?
    A trial is important to see if a makeup artist is the right fit for you. It typically consists of trying a desired look or style that best suits your aesthetic. If a completely different style/look is desired beyond that, it is suggested to book another trial appointment. This service is usually booked before a special event or before signing a wedding contract. A bridal preview is where you will discuss your wedding vision. From your dress and hairstyle to your bridesmaids' attire, flowers, and wedding colors. This all plays a big part in how your makeup look will be while keeping your personal style in mind. This is your chance to see what your wedding makeup will look like. This service is scheduled after a wedding contract is signed and is suggested to book 1-3 months prior to your wedding. Both services are a great opportunity to meet Andrea and to share your vision and ideas to create a customized look that fits your personal style and preferences. While both services are optional, it’s highly recommended for a bride to schedule a preview to ensure the perfect look for the wedding day. Trial and previews are exclusively booked at Andrea's studio Wednesday - Sunday. *Please note, scheduling a trial before booking a specific date does not hold that future appointment.

LET ANDREA BE A PART OF YOUR SPECIAL DAY

I cannot say enough positive things about Andrea! Andrea was recommended to me by the hairstylist I booked for my wedding. I took a leap of faith and didn't even do a trial before the wedding. I am someone who doesn't wear makeup on a normal day, so this was incredibly anxiety inducing for me. Andrea listened to exactly what I wanted and executed the makeup flawlessly! Not only was my makeup perfect, but so was my bridesmaids. I cannot tell you how many compliments I got throughout the night and even after! The makeup stayed perfectly even in 95 degree weather and 75 percent humidity!
