Frequently Asked Questions

1. What form of payments do you accept?

We accept credit card, check and cash.

2. What type of makeup do you use?

We are not loyal to any one brand, but use many lines including MAC,
Laura Mercier, NARS, Sephora, private label lines, and even over the counter products. When picking cosmetics, purchases are based on color
and usability.

3. Do you airbrush?

Yes. It is a great tool for brides and a necessity for covering tattoos, scars, roscea, and blemished skin. The longevity outweighs traditional foundations.

4. How long will my makeup last?

By using primers and sealers, professional products, and being airbrushed your makeup lasts an average of 10-14 hours, with the occasional need to touch up lips and blot to reduce possible shine.

5. Can I schedule my bridal portrait for a Saturday?

This depends. During peak wedding season, we have back to back weddings booked on Saturdays and Sundays are usually the best for bridal portraits. But during non-peak, Saturdays work well.

6. Do I need a trial run?

We always suggest one so you are confident you love the look you have selected. The trial run is a good chance to observe how the makeup and hair will last on your wedding day. Also, if you decide after wearing the look and find there is something you want to change, such as hair down instead of up, or a different lipstick color, changes can be made for your bridal portrait.

7. Do you come on location and is there a trip charge?

We come on location for the wedding day and a trip charge is applied over 14 miles from Allen.

8. Can I meet with you to view your portfolio?

Being in a high tech world, we no longer print out our bridal work. All current work is posted on the website. The included hair and before and after photos are more than just a sampling of our capabilities. We post our work so brides won’t need to take time out of their busy schedules to look at the same thing in a book that can be viewed online. However, if you would like to meet to discuss your wedding, please call us.

9. Do you have a studio?

At this time, trial runs are done at Kelly’s in house studio in Allen and wedding day services are done on location.

10. I don't want to hire a makeup artist for the whole party, but
      just myself. Do you come on location for only the bride?

As of 2013, we are offering bride only services to the following cities: Allen, McKinney, Plano and Richardson. For the rest of Collin and Dallas Counties we have a $500 minimum for Saturday weddings and $350 for Sunday weddings. Brides can offer hair and/or makeup as a gift to their attendants/family or let the party know they are interested in hiring an artist and ask which girls would like to be included letting them know the cost. "Last minute" brides (brides who contact us the week of their wedding), please call to see if we can accommodate your needs.
