Bridal Trial Session (Makeup)

A 1 to 2 hour session to discuss the particulars, choose colors & design your look.

We use both traditional and *air brush foundation application, and custom blend to match you skin perfectly.  We will record everything on a face chart, personalized just for you. Brides, you should show up with a white colored outfit and bring a few photos of what you have in mind for make up. A good reference is to go directly to my Instagram @MakeupbyMer and look at my previous work.
