Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE "CONSULTATION" "TRIAL RUN" AND "BIG DAY" MAKEUP APPLICATIONS?
There are price differences in the appointments because of the time allowed for the service. Here are some helpful tips.
The ‘CONSULTATION’ Appointment is a complimentary 10 minute phone call or in-person meeting that we offer to our clients to go over details of the wedding. This is the time where we can get all the relevant information we need prior to the wedding services and trial runs. These can be made online, in person or over the phone.
‘THE TRIAL RUN’ Appointment is a truncated version of the wedding makeup application. Does not include the luxury skin prep, airbrush or lashes. This will give you the gist of what the actual makeup on your big day will look like.
‘THE BIG DAY’ Makeup Appointment includes the luxury skin preparation, photo-ready makeup application, airbrush add-on, custom faux lashes & last for 12 hours or more. Added steps and time to ensure you get the best results possible.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY TRIAL RUN?
You should book your trail run right after you select your wedding date. To guarantee your makeup team for the day of your wedding, you need to place a deposit of 50%. We recommend coming at least once but few times throughout the year for a makeup applications ideal. That way, you can get an idea of how long it lasts and feels.
WHAT OTHER DATES SHOULD I CONSIDER TO BOOK FOR?
You should also consider booking makeup applications for the Save the Date, Engagement Photos, Bridal Showers & Rehearsal Dinners too!
I ALREADY BOOKED HAIR WITH ANOTHER SALON OR COMPANY, CAN YOU STILL DO MY MAKEUP?

Only best luxury cosmetic brands & labs that are tried and true. We use a combination of Lucky Cat Beauty Cosmetics, Tom Ford, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown, Gucci, Drunk Elephant, Viseart, Kett Cosmetics, Tarte,, Makeup Forever & PRO makeup palettes to name a few.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AIRBRUSH MAKEUP AND TRADITIONAL MAKEUP APPLICATION?
If your makeup tends to fade or slide off. It's a great idea to add the airbrush makeup option. We use airbrush foundations and blushes as a top coat for the skin. Traditional foundation can absorb into the skin and mix with skin oils that can create a shine. Airbrush makeup is water based oil free formula that is a concentrated pixelated foundation spray that doesn't flex or disappear. Its very lightweight and doesn't feel heavy. I explain it like this, “it’s the Gel Nail Polish of Foundations!” Airbush application requires additonal steps and time to apply as well
MY SKIN IS SUPER SENSITIVE, CAN YOU ACCOMIDATE THAT?
Of course-We do too! We have very gentle formulations and specialize in the sensitive skin department. Anyone can be allergic to anything at anytime but You shouldn't have to worry about any reactions with our makeup applications. If you have a known sensitivity to anything please let us know beforehand so we can make accommodations. If you have a product you love or can’t live without feel free to bring it with you to the service appointment!
THE LIGHTING IN THE HOTEL IS TERRIBLE, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Not to worry! We always come with The Makeup Light to our on location destinations. We also have beauty studio lighting inside LCB Studio. During the trial we can discuss different options for lighting. For on location services, pick the best spot for services that are big and airy, rather than a stuffy cramped bathroom.

WHAT IS AIRBRUSH MAKEUP?
Airbrush makeup is water based oil free formula that is a concentrated pixelated foundation spray applied with a professional compressor. Airbrush Makeup will not fade, flex or disappear. Its very lightweight and doesn't feel heavy. I explain it like this, “it’s the Gel Nail Polish of Foundations!”
In Texas and if you have oily skin, airbrush is a MUST. We use airbrush foundations and blushes as a ‘top coat’ or seal for the skin.
Traditional foundation can absorb into the skin and mix with skin oils that can create a shine or fade . In the past, if we ever hear that a client isn't happy with a prior airbrush application experience, chances are it wasn't applied correctly. It's easy to overdo it with a less experienced makeup artist.
