Booking Tiffany Elie Makeup Artistry for your wedding or event is easy.
First, check the availability of your wedding date via email (Sam.TiffanyElieMakeup@gmail.

Third, a deposit for 50% of total services will be required to secure the date. This can be paid via check or Venmo.
There are a couple of options for booking the date. 1) Book the date and then schedule a preview appointment at your convenience. 2) You can do a trial-run of your makeup before reserving the date. If you are confident in the Tiffany Elie Makeup style and like what you see in the portfolio, you should go with option 1. If you are undecided, it's best to go with option 2 and gain confidence through a trial first.
You can visit our home studio or we will travel to your location and do your makeup as if it were the day of your wedding. You will meet for 1 to 1 and a half hours to create your custom look. You can preview the look, wear it for the day and evening to understand what it looks like in different lighting. The makeup will last about 12-15 hours.
How important is a trial?
Makeup trials are highly recommended. Like any service at a wedding, a test-run is the best way to ensure it turns out exactly as you imagine. We take photos and write down each step like a recipe card so there are no surprises on your wedding day.
Scheduling a trial
Makeup artists can be booked up to a year in advance so it’s a good idea to schedule your trial and consultation several months ahead of the big day. We will reach out regarding a trial a few months prior to the event if you have not scheduled one yet.
Note: Scheduling during daylight hours is ideal for getting the best natural lighting.
When scheduling a makeup trial it is often possible to coordinate hair as well.
