Bride Interview with Evelyn Sanabria
How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be a Makeup Artist & Hairstylist Specializing in Bridal Beauty?
Well, I've been a Makeup Artist and Hairstylist for 6 years. I have experience doing Makeup and Hair for all mediums like TV, Print, Movies and Runway. But I found that I really enjoy working with Brides and being able to bring out a woman’s natural beauty and enhancing it through the art of make up. I decided 4 years ago I would specialize in Bridal Beauty and I am glad I did, I love my job and there is nothing like it!
We love your services and portfolio. Everything sounds great. So, can you tell me how you're different from all the other Bridal Makeup Artists & Hairstylists out there?
Bridal Beauty is my specialty. I truly love my craft and have an immense passion for it. Being able to do a beautiful make up that accentuates your best features, disguises any imperfections, while still looking natural and like yourself takes natural talent, experience and product knowledge, all of which I have. I use only the best products that are industry proven and tested by me. I also have a great deal of knowledge on different application techniques. I truly believe makeup is a tool that should be used to enhance everyone’s individual beauty, not mask it. I love creating natural beauty looks to very glamorous looks, but I always keep in mind to not take away from my clients natural beauty. I also enjoy having the opportunity to share my knowledge with my clients so they are able to make themselves look and feel great every day.
This all sounds so wonderful. But, it also seems expensive. Am I going to be able to afford this?
Who do you work best with?
I find I work best with Brides that really see the value in having a professional makeup and hair artist help them look and feel beautiful for their most photographed day. Also, Brides that are not afraid of make up and really enjoy all things beauty. I work well with Brides that are open to ideas if they’re not sure of what they want. I feel a creative partnership between the Bride and myself tends to result in a beautiful look for the biggest day of their life.
Who’s not going to benefit from your services?
That’s a tough question because I truly believe everyone can benefit from my services. Someone that may not benefit is an unsure Bride or a Bride that is not ready or willing to invest or doesn't see the true value in hiring a Professional to enhance their beauty on their wedding day. It is so important to hire the right person who you are going to trust with the way you look on not only this one day, but the way you will look in the pictures that you will look back on for a lifetime. I truly take pride in being chosen by the brides I work with. I definitely work best with Brides that see the value in my work and the services I provide and Brides that know they deserve to look their very best on their Wedding Day.
Do you take credits cards and do you have a payment plan?
Yes and Yes! I take all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover). I also accept PayPal payments, Checks and Cash. The payment for the day of the wedding is split into two payments. The first payment is 30% of the total which is paid at booking and the final payment is made 2 weeks prior to the event.
Do you take more than one wedding per day?
It is very rare that I take on more than one wedding a day. I like to make sure I am operating at 100% for all my clients. On those rare occasions, I assure the events are separated by several hours and do not overlap in any way, as to not compromise the experience of either bride. I make sure I focus on every bride so they can look and feel the best they've ever felt.
Can you accommodate a Bridal Party of any size and how long does it take to get everyone ready?
Yes, I can accommodate a variety of bridal parties. Depending on the size of your bridal party, I have 1-2 talented assistants accompany me to help get everyone ready by the scheduled time. We are usually never at a Wedding longer than 5 hours and the average amount of time it takes to get a bridal party ready is 4 hours.
Where do the services take place?
We provide the luxury of on location services. We come to you!
This sounds exactly like what I've been looking for. So, how does this process work?
Well, the next step is for you to contact me and send me an email with the date of your wedding and the services you need and any questions you may have. We can then set up a trial session so we can create a look that fits your personal style for the day of your Wedding. I do recommend booking as soon as possible, as I do get multiple inquires for the same date. I do require a signed contract and a 30% retainer fee to hold and book a date.
May we contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?
Absolutely, you can also check out the testimonials page to see what my clients are saying about me.
We have a few more questions before getting started. Can I call or email you to discuss this further?
Absolutely, I definitely encourage email me with any questions or concerns you may have. Feel free to email me any questions through my contact page.
