Yes! The MWK team will travel to you at your home, hotel or venue for your event. We are available to travel in the Tri-State area, as well as for destination weddings and events. Travel fees may apply if location is outside of a 30 minute radius, or Long Island (Nassau County) area.
We can book over a year in advance. For weddings, we recommend starting to search for your makeup artist a minimum of 6 months in advance. On Saturdays especially, we get booked very quickly, especially in high season, and dates can get taken over a year in advance. Once you have set a wedding date, you should inquire about scheduling a trial and booking your date to ensure we are available. For all other appointments, we recommend booking as soon as possible.
Rates vary depending on factors such as the bridal party size and location, just makeup or if you would like hair services too. We also offer package pricing. Just send us an email and we can send you a quote!
Each service we offer can take anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes depending on the look or style. Your MWK bridal coordinator will ensure all services are scheduled accordingly and that your day of timeline runs smoothly and on schedule.
Trials can be scheduled at your location or ours. Travel fees may apply over 30 minutes of travel and/or outside the Long Island area.
You can schedule your trial HERE.
Trials are normally scheduled on weekdays, Monday thru Thursday, and some Sundays, because we have very limited weekend availability, due to being booked for events. If you have a specific date in mind please contact us to inquire about availability.
Trials are approximately 2 hours long. The trial is the time when you sit with your artist and discuss all the details of your event. We want to know all about your dress, the venue, the colors, the flowers, the bridesmaid dresses and the overall vibe of your wedding day. We will also discuss your daily makeup routine, your skincare regimen and most importantly, how you envision yourself on your big day. We will look at any inspiration photos of makeup looks you love and we will lead you in a direction that compliments your features. We will then try different looks. Starting out light and increasing as we go, to see what you like best. Before, after and in-between photos are included, so the look can be fully replicated the day of the wedding. The trial only ends when you are satisfied with the results.
*Please allow for extra time for hair trials as well.
