FAQs

Do you travel?

Yes, however, I do charge a travel time fee. This can be figured via Google Maps by plugging in the address for The Dollhouse (2002 Judson Rd Longview, TX) and the address to your venue. I charge $1 per minute round trip. 

If your venue is 2 or more hours from Longview and your timeline requires makeup to begin 12pm or earlier, hotel accommodations must be included for the night prior to the event.

Do you offer packages?

I do not currently offer packages for brides or bridal parties. Often times plans for attendants change as it gets closer to the wedding day, making the package obsolete as there is typically a minimum number of people that must commit to having makeup done in order to receive any kind of price cut. I offer per person booking and time is only reserved based on each single application.

Do you require a deposit?

I do not require a deposit, but I do require online booking secured by a credit card.

What is your cancelation fee?

I appreciate as much notice as possible, however, I only charge a cancelation fee for no-shows (50%) and late cancelations that occur within 24 hours of the appointment (25%). 

What is the difference between airbrush and traditional foundation?

Essentially, traditional foundation is applied manually and airbrush is not. When foundation is airbrushed, it is applied 'flawlessly' because the skin is not physically touched by the applicator. I have several foundations in my kit, all of which stay very well. If you have excessively oily skin, I recommend one of my traditional foundations that help control oil.

How well does the makeup stay in place?

The makeup I apply generally stays well throughout the day into night, however, depending on your skin type, you might have to do some minor touch ups. I provide a touch up kit that includes a sponge to smooth out any creasing of the concealer below the eye, a blot sheet to absorb shine, a q-tip, lip color, and a lip wand. 

Can I bring my own favorite products?

While I carry quality products and have you covered with any look you could possibly desire, you are more than welcome to bring your products. While I do provide a touch up kit, having your own full-size lip product to apply throughout the day and night does make life a little easier for you. 

The strip lashes that I apply are what I consider a medium level of length and volume, so if you have a specific lash that you want me to apply, bring 'em with you!

Does bringing my own strip lashes or having extensions lower the cost of the application?

No. Lashes are included in the application price.

Do you do hair?

I do not offer hair services, but I have a stylist in my studio. Her name is Joanne Alba (aka Tresschic) and she is incredibly talented! You may contact her via 903.399.0560.

What are eyelash extensions?

Eyelash extensions are natural or synthetic in material and are placed on natural lashes to provide added length and volume. For classic lashes, one extension is placed on one natural lash with a semi-permanent adhesive. 

Can extensions ruin my natural lashes?

Eyelash extensions will not harm your natural lashes as long as you abide by these two things: 1) Go to a reputable technician who isolates properly and genuinely cares about your natural lash health. 2) Religiously follow the care instructions given by your lash tech. 

Eyelash extensions are a maintenance service. You can expect to return to have your lashes filled at least bi-weekly. How often you will need to come for fills is dependent on how well you care for your lashes. 

Do you offer volume lash extensions?

Soon. :)
