You are encouraged to go through magazines or do a general search on-line for special occassion hair and makeup and find some looks that interest you. If you have chosen to have your hair done as well, you will be able to see how everything looks together.

Makeup Q & A with Jen Santoro Rotty

MAKEUP Q & A WITH JEN SANTORO ROTTY

Does Airbrush makeup last all day?
Yes, airbrush makeup sits on the skin without looking heavy or overdone. It is silicone based makeup so it does last for hours.
Do I need to bring anything with me to touch up for later?
The bride will receive a touch-up kit as part of the bridal package that includes makeup. The kit is a custom designed makeup bag, oil blotting papers, a custom designed purse mirror and the lip color. The only thing that you should really need to reapply would be the lip color. The makeup will stay on and look fresh for hours!
How long have you been doing makeup?
I have been doing makeup since 1998. I started out working for cosmetic counters and then transitioned into full time freelance work.
What makeup do you use?
I use many different brands. Some of my favorites are MAC, Temptu, Smashbox, Purminerals, Bobbie Brown and Laura Mercier.
I worry about getting an infection from unsanitary makeup application. How do you address that concern?
I am very sanitary when I apply makeup. The airbrush system doesn't come in contact with the skin directly. I always use clean sponges and brushes for every person and I clean my hands between every client. I have not had a problem with infections in the many years I have been doing makeup.
Do you do Lash Application?
Yes, I am proficient at lash application. I do not charge extra for lashes and the application for the bridal packages. I typically use full sets of lashes but I can do individual lashes if requested. Individual lashes cost a bit more and they are not done on the day of the wedding. A separate appointment is made a couple of days ahead of the wedding date to apply individual lashes.
Do you perform make up trials?
I will schedule a trial run at the location of your choosing. The trial run consists of the services you have booked for your wedding. We will go over photos of looks you have chosen from magazines, internet, etc. We will do the hair and/or makeup just as it will be on the wedding day. If you are having your hair done, we will schedule the trial run after you have chosen your head piece. I do require a non-refundable $100 deposit in order to hold your date as I only book one wedding on any given day. That deposit will then go directly toward your final payment due on the day of the wedding.
How far do you travel?
I will travel within the Twin-Cities Metro area with no extra charge for the first 30 miles. Outside of the Metro area, I charge the current IRS rate after the first 30 miles. If the wedding is outside of the 5 state area (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota) I will make travel arrangements with client.
Do you have regular assistants?
On occasion I will use assistants for hair or makeup if there are many people in the wedding party who want hair and makeup done and need to be ready either at the same time or in a shorter amount of time. I work with excellent artists who are very experienced with weddings. There is an additional charge for each artist I bring in to accommodate larger wedding parties. The charge is $75 per artist
