When should I book Makeup for my Wedding or Portrait Session?
For weddings when you have your venue booked start booking your beauty squad right away. A wedding will typically book quickly in the spring / summer. Dates fill up randomly so I never know when a date will get booked , so save your date and contact me asap! For portraits as soon as the date for the photo session is set contact me to set a appointment date. In order to secure your date for a wedding or portrait session, a deposit is require along with a signed contract. This protects both the artist and client incase there were to be any last minute cancelations or emergencies that may happen.

A personalized makeup or hair session, if a trial run or additional time for touch ups are needed that can be added too.
What is a trail run?
An agreed time set with you the client and me the makeup artist to talk about your ideal wedding look. This time is all about you so let me know things that you love about your inspiration picture but also things you don't. Letting me know the little details will help with a better outcome at the end of your appointment. Once we agree on what look you would like to try, I will start the makeup application.
How long do appointments take?
BRIDAL TRIAL RUN: Makeup: 1 hour application time & 15 min consultation

There will be additional time between each client to make sure all tools, beauty items, and work space is properly sanitized.
What is you COVID protocol?
Each client Danika Lav works with will have designated set of tools and brushes that will not be used on any other clients. All beauty items and work space will be wiped down between each client.
Airbrush vs Classic:
Airbrush : is a very thin makeup done with a machine so it comes out as a fine mist. It’s very skin like, buildable coverage and water/sweat resistant.
Classic Foundation: Comes in cream or liquid, can be light to full coverage. Because it is done with brushes vs and machine the artist can get really detailed with their work and really customize the way the products look on the face. It really comes down to preference and both techniques can achieve a beautiful result with the ability to last the whole wedding at day :) Check out this this article HERE for more in depth explanation.
