Do you travel?
Lauren will travel to your home, hotel, or venue anywhere on Long Island, & beyond. Travel fees may apply, depending on the location.
When should I book my trial?
Lauren recommends booking your trial as early as possible. Since Lauren books up to 2 years in advance, she wants to ensure that your date remains available for you. The sooner you do your trial and book Lauren, the better!
Do I need a trial?
Trials are not always necessary. But Lauren does recommend doing a trial so that together you can perfect the flawless bridal look you’ve imagined. Deciding on your look ahead of time helps the morning of the wedding to run smoothly and efficiently. It also gives you an opportunity to be sure that Lauren is the right fit for you! While all of Lauren’s trials have booked her, it is still important for you to be comfortable with your makeup artist and to see for yourself that Lauren is the right choice!
When and where do the trials take place?
Lauren travels to your home for the trial. There is a fee for the trial that is not associated with the price for the wedding. It is a separate service. Since the weekends are reserved for weddings, Lauren tries to book her bridal trials during the week. However, if there is a specific date that you have in mind, Lauren will do her best to accommodate you.
How far in advance should I book LG Artistry?
Lauren’s calendar books 2-3 years in advance. It is imperative that you book as early as possible in order to guarantee your date is reserved, especially if you are getting married on a Saturday.
Does Lauren do everyone’s makeup in my bridal party?
Lauren does her best to make sure each client is getting HER. For bridal parties of 8 or less people, Lauren will be able to accommodate everyone. For bridal parties that are larger than that, Lauren will bring a trusted, experienced assistant, at no additional cost to you! But rest assured, her team of makeup artists all have the same style, professionalism, and talent.
How much time does it take to do my makeup?
It typically takes about 30 minutes per face, depending on any add-ons (i.e individual lashes or tattoo coverage). The bride tends to take a little longer so that Lauren can make sure everything is set to perfection. Please send Lauren your timeline in advance so she can ensure the day runs smoothly.
Do I need to supply my own makeup or lashes?
No, Lauren supplies all of the makeup used. If you have specific makeup you would like used, you may bring that. If you have any allergies or sensitivity, let Lauren know when booking and she will do her best to accommodate you. The only product that Lauren recommends each client bring is their own lipstick, so they may be able to touch up their lips with the same color.
How can I be sure that the makeup will last all day and night?
Lauren uses only the highest quality products. She preps the skin, applies the makeup, and sets everything in place perfectly to ensure that nothing moves. Her brides ALWAYS say that their makeup lasts until the next day! The airbrush foundation is transfer-resistant and water-resistant, which means it won’t budge. A tip to making sure your makeup stays put is to BLOT the happy wedding tears, rather than wiping them away. Lauren does also recommend that the bride bring her lipstick with her for touch ups throughout the day. Lipstick is the only thing that may need to be touched up. While most brides don’t need it, you can also keep some blotting powder with you for any oil or sweat. If you are concerned about your makeup moving, Lauren does offer a stand-by service. In this package, Lauren will be with you all day for touch ups or to change your look throughout the night. Contact Lauren for more information about this service.
How should I prepare to have my makeup done?
It is asked that each client have a clean, make-up free face before sitting in the makeup chair. Skin preparation begins with a good skincare routine, especially before your wedding. If you’d like any recommendations, Lauren would be happy to help!
