Lashes? SAY YES!

They are the game-changer for that perfect photo finish! Lashes are the perfect companion to a timeless and classic for your wedding day and completing your look, not to mention that you’ll LOVE the way your eyes will POP in your wedding portraits.  Even if your eyelashes are already long, false lashes will add volume and shape to your eyes.  Say “I do” to Lashes!

Shape those Brows!

Grooming your brows and keeping up with a brow shape has changed so much over the years and I can really tell the decade a photo is from, just by the way the eye brows look in the photo. Hence the reason that we don’t want to go with the trend when it comes to your makeup look or your brow upkeep for the wedding.  Not sure if you should wax or thread to get that perfect shape for your brows?  Fear not!  We’ve broken down the in’s and outs of waxing vs. threading for you right here.

Schedule a trial!

Whenever possible schedule a trial for your hair and makeup, I’m asked on a daily basis “Do I need a trial?”. While this may seem like a yes or no question, it really is a matter of logistics for our client. By that I mean, are you or will you be in Las Vegas prior to your wedding day? Because Las Vegas is a destination city, 85% of the time we are not able to meet with clients before the wedding day. Our brides hit the ground running and simply don’t have time for a trial. 

 If you are local or coming into town for planning, then yes, by all means, let’s schedule a trial. Please don’t confuse my above statement by thinking no you never need a trial. I simply meant that if you are time challenged, do not let not being able to schedule a trial stop you from reserving hair and makeup for your wedding day. In fact, all the more reason to book Makeup in the 702 because we have the experience and expertise to complete your look without a trial.

Bonus Tip:

On your wedding day allow enough time for your hair and makeup.  We recommend at least a 1 ½ – 2 hour window for both hair and make-up.  This gives you plenty of time to work with your artists at a relaxed pace leaving you feeling confident and relaxed for your most beautiful day.  

Makeup In The 702 provides on location hair and makeup services in the greater Las Vegas area.  To check our availability for your wedding day, schedule a trial or request your custom proposal, CLICK HERE.  You deserve the very best on your most beautiful day.
