Lead Makeup Artist
I’ve been a certified Makeup Artist for 8 years. I worked freelance for several years doing weddings, special events, photo shoots, and fashion shows, before working at Sephora for 3 years.
However, makeup's been my passion since I can remember. I love making people feel beautiful in their own skin. I never want to cover up a persons face with makeup. I artistically enhance her natural beauty, so that when she looks in the mirror she sees the best version of herself and not the makeup..
Married for 10 years to my best friend.
Love to travel
I’m a huge Foodie.
My obsession is Coffee.
I feel so Blessed to be able to do what I love as a career!
Cut & Colorist
I have had the pleasure of working in the beauty industry for the last 12 years. I found my passion for styling hair while working with 'Dry Bar' in Los Angeles, Ca. That was where I found the art of a smoothing blow dry.
I moved to the Palm Springs, ca area in 2012 and found that the bridal and event industry in my new city was up and coming. Ever since then I have used my skills in hair styling for brides, engagement and event shoots, and of course Coachella & Stagecoach Festers.
I always make it my goal to achieve the style that my client envisions for their day.
**I also provide cut and color services which you can see on my insta @hair_by_clarisemarie
Bridal Trial Preparation
Trials are where we meet for the first time and go over styles and looks you've chosen and put them to the test.
You may love the photo you found online, now is the time to see how it looks on you. Once we've found your perfect bridal look, photos are taken as a reference which we bring with us on the wedding day.
This is crucial to making sure everything runs smoothly on your wedding day... no surprises.
Please come with freshly washed hair, do not flat iron or use any hair products. You want your hair to be as natural as possible.
For makeup trial, come with freshly washed face, following your typical skincare routine.
Bring photos of hair and/or makeup ideas. As well as a picture of your wedding dress. This will give us a perfect place to start in providing exactly the look you envision for your wedding day.
Bring clip in hair extensions if you want to use on the wedding day; they should be cut as we do not do this at the trial. There is a $20 charge for the use and placement of extensions
Bring any hair accessories (veil, combs, jeweled pins, etc) that you may have and will be wearing on the day of the wedding.
Please mention any product allergies or sensitivities you may have prior to your trial run date. We want to ensure that we are able to provide products that will not cause irritation if sensitive.
The next step to securing your wedding day/ event
Once confirmed, we will prepare and send a service agreement that will explain how to pay your retainer. Our team will officially be yours for your day once the signed agreement and retainer have been completed and received.
We travel within the limits of Coachella Valley which includes:
*A travel fee of $50/hr will be applied to any area outside of the Coachella Valley
The remaining balance for all agreed services will be due 14 days prior to your wedding day/ event. Any additional services requested after the due date will be reviewed and confirmed as long as the time is available.
Any cancelations within 30 days of your wedding day will result in forfeiture of the $200 retainer and 50% of remaining balance for services signed in agreement. If for any reason cancelation occurs within 14 days prior to wedding day you will be charged 100% of remaining balance for all services in signed agreement.
What to expect from our team on your wedding day....
Our team will arrive 15-20 minutes prior to start time for full set up and preparations. We will complete all bridal/clients hair and makeup styles within the given timeline that has been discussed and confirmed. We set aside time for any touch ups that may be required.
Our team will provide touch up kits for bride and mini touch up kits for bridal party. We are also available for on site touch ups during photography and wedding services for an additional fee.
