FAQ's + Booking Policies
Q: I'm interested in booking with you, what should I do next?
A: If you are interested in my services please fill out the form on the contact page and I will get back to you as soon as possible! I’ll confirm my availability for your wedding date, and send you my price list to look over. If you’d like to move forward, I require my contract to be signed and a non refundable deposit be paid to secure your wedding date. While you can book a trial first without putting down the deposit, this does not guarantee that I will be available for your date. So I always suggest booking as soon as possible, I’m confident that I can give you the look you’ve always dreamed of!
Q: Do you offer trials?
A: Yes! While they're not required, I believe trials are a very important part of the Bridal experience so that we can meet and figure out the exact look you want to go for on your wedding day.
Q: Can you travel to me for makeup services?
A: Yes, as of right now KMR Makeup services is fully freelance. This means I work on location for wedding day services only. I can hold trials at a local studio, or I can come to you if you're within an hour from me (there is a travel fee, see below)
Q: Can you travel for out of state or destination weddings?
A: Absolutely! Please reach out to get a custom quote for out of state or destination wedding makeup services!
Q: Travel & travel fees?
A: Travel within 25 miles of my zip code is $25. Anything over that is an additional $1 per. I will calculate the total and let you know so you have the final cost! I'm currently servicing the Hudson Valley, Westchester, Catskills, Albany, and surrounding areas.
Q: Do you have a minimum/max number of people you can do?
A: I have a minimum of 4 people and can typically accommodate parties of up to 10 people. It truly depends on the time frame we have if I can accommodate everyone on my own. Depending on the number of people and/or timeframe I may need an additional artist to help assist me. I don't have my own team of artists, but would only use local trusted artists that have a similar style to me. I will try my best to find an additional artist if it is needed, but it's not guaranteed I can find one available to help for your specific date. If I hire on an additional artist there is a $100 fee per extra artist. But you're also more than welcome to find and hire a separate additional artist to help accommodate a larger bridal party!
Q: How much time will you need for makeup on my wedding day?
A: I like to have at least 45 minutes to a hour with my brides so we can make sure everything is perfect! As for bridesmaids or other guests getting makeup services, they are scheduled 45 minutes. Please keep this in mind when booking and making your timelines for the day. To give the highest quality service possible the amount of time per person can not be shortened.
Q: I don't want a full face of makeup, can I get just get my eyes or face done ?
A: I only offer full face services. This will help achieve a cohesive makeup look! A full face doesn't have to mean full glam or a lot of makeup! I customize each makeup application to the clients comfortability, skin type, ect.
Q: Do you do hair too?
A: I do not offer any hair services but I have teamed up with Baylee from Hair & Beauty by Bay to offer hair & makeup packages for your big day! When you inquire check the "Interested in Hair+Makeup Packages" button.
Q: Should I leave a tip?
A: Tips are never expected, but always appreciated! Please know gratuities are not included in my prices.
1. As we all know COVID-19 has affected so much, changing planned events, and making things very stressful. I completely understand the circumstances we're under and will try to be as flexible as possible if you need to change your event date. If you're already booked with me and sent your deposit in, I have no problem with moving to the new date you chose at no extra cost if I'm available. If you do need to cancel your event or I am already booked or not available please know deposits are still non-refundable, but I can offer help in finding another artist that will suit your needs!
2. I pride myself in having high sanitation standards even before COVID-19, but of course it's more important now than ever. Some of my new policies include me wearing protective gear at all times, I use as many disposables tools as I can and every non disposable product/tool is sanitized before, during, and after. Please keep in mind that I will need a few extra minutes in between clients to sanitize my kit and wash my hands. As of January 2022 I am fully vaccinated and boosted.
3. I maintain the right not to perform services on any clients that are displaying any cold or flu-like symptoms. If a client is showing any symptoms before the wedding, the day of, or has come in contact with someone sick, they are required to be transparent and I will cancel their appointment with no extra charge. I ask that those getting services please BE HONEST. These policies are made with both myself and the clients health and safety in mind!
