What beauty services do you offer?
In- Studio and Mobile Makeup Services available for
Weddings * Proms * Pageants * Professional Head Shots * Home Parties * Private Makeup lessons * Glam/Boudoir shoots
What looks can you do?
My expertise is sexy, flirtatious and feminine! More emphasis on the eyes and less on the lips.
I'm here to please and we will achieve the look YOU desire.
DeeVa Beauty makeup is guaranteed to last all night.
A common misconception is that Airbrush makeup is necessary to achieve a long-lasting look.
With great technique and the right product, you’ll look airbrushed without the additional cost.
Do you provide hair services as well?
DeeVa Beauty works with several talented and qualified hairstylists that can be available to you should you also need this service. However, please note that these hair stylists are independent contractors and need to know ASAP of your date to make sure they are available.
Also, many claim they are great at BOTH hair and makeup but in reality, usually are better in one than the other, so sometimes its best to have someone that specializes in one.
Keep in mind with a bridal party of more than 3 to 4, hair and makeup are best done at separate stations for ease, convenience, and timing purposes.
If you need a hair specialist, I can make a fabulous recommendation, but there is no obligation to go with her and you can still hire DeeVa Beauty for makeup alone.
Can you service a large group or bridal party?
Yes! In the event of larger bridal/event bookings, second artists can be secured that can help when timing is not available to allow just one artist.
Do you have a minimum requirement for mobile services?
Yes, there are minimums for travel.
DeeVa Beauty will not make services mobile for less than 3 faces, however, depending on distance of location traveling to, ‘Peak’ Wedding Season, weekends, and/or Holidays, this minimum may be increased.
Travel fee will incur outside of the 20 mile radius of Nutley, NJ
Travel for party's of 3 or less are subject to an additional fee depending on day, time of year and location, in addition to any travel fee. Please inquire for details.
If you cannot meet the minimum, you are always invited to have your makeup done at my studio location in Nutley on the day of your event if I have the date available. Please inquire for more details.
Can I book my wedding date without having a trial session first?
Absolutely! This gives you peace of mind knowing your date is secured and services are booked, and allows you ample time to find your dress, any accessories needed such as jewelry, headpieces/Veil, but also collect images of Hair/Makeup styles you like, color schemes and more, all of which is closely worked with when constructing your personalized ‘look’.
Then about 1- 2 months before the wedding you can schedule your trial.
Please note though that if you choose to come in for your trial first and after your trial session should you choose to wait on booking to secure your date/services (with signed contract/retainer) your date still remains open and is available to another bride, regardless of trial completed, as all services are booked first come first serve.
Wedding dates are not held by submitting an inquiry, or making any other form of contact, or coming for a trial.
****** We do not ‘hold’ dates without both a retainer and a signed contract *****
If a trial needs to be booked out more than three weeks to you coming in, then you need to leave full 95. trial rate to temporarily 'hold' your wedding date until your trial.
This is then put towards your trial when you come and you owe nothing for your trial.
This 95. is non- refundable should you cancel your trial date or are a no show.
How long is the trial, and what can I expect?
Makeup trials can last up to 90 minutes but can go to a full two hours with signing contracts and discussing date details.
Hair and makeup together can be 2- 2 1/2 hours or a bit longer.
Here is where we will sit down and discuss your vision and your needs in detail.
Your skin will be assessed, and you will be given tips and advice on ways to get your skin in the best shape it can be by your wedding day.
Makeup will be applied, adding or subtracting as we go along until we find "your look!
Photos will be taken Before and After to assure that you will know just how you are going to look on your day.
We will go over contract, and should you wish to book, a non-refundable retainer, and a signed contract will secure your date.
Will you stay for touch-ups?
You should understand that I put your makeup on TO STAY!!! PERIOD!!!
The only thing you will need touch ups for is your lipstick.
However, under extreme situations such as extremely hot weather or body chemistry that causes one to perspire more than normal, etc, Yes, I am available at an hourly rate to stay by your side on your special day for touch up services.
Please note this is an additional fee that is charged after original makeup services are rendered.
What happens if someone wants their Make-up/Hair done last minute?
Yes! It is common on the day of the wedding that after seeing someone who has just received Make-up services that they now want to look as great. We schedule services and start times depending on the number of clients booked, however, time permitting we will gladly do any extra person's makeup as long as it does not interfere with the original members of bridal party that has already booked in for services with DeeVa Beauty.
How long does a makeup application take on the wedding day?
Please allow 1 full hour for the bride, and 35-45 minutes for each additional person, depending if eyelashes are being applied and how glamorous the look.
As well as additional time for makeup artist to ‘set up’, and it is always best to be prepared to allow for some extra time for any unforeseen circumstances, than to fall short and be rushed. No worries, I help you plan the time line out... this day should be as relaxed and stress-free for you as possible.
Is there an additional ‘travel’ fee??
Depending on your location and travel time an additional reasonable travel fee may apply.
Included in pricing is 20 minutes ‘each way’ of zip code 07110 after which there is a reasonable travel fee.
What Payment Methods do you accept?
Venmo is accepted to leave retainers to hold appt dates and times, this is applid towards balance due.
Cash Only payments are required on the day of service whether for mobile services or in-studio services.
Cash, Venmo and personal checks are accepted for Retainer payments to secure your wedding date.
What sets you apart from other beauty services? Aren't all hair and makeup teams really the same?
I have over 11 years experience doing bridal and many more years experience learning my craft of different skin tones and features, etc.
I have a corporate background so I come equipped with excellent communication, organizational, follow-up, and customer service skills.
I'm older and more mature so I have an excellent work ethic, and pride myself on being reliable, punctual and dependable.
I show up at your event looking clean, groomed, professionally dressed and using quality, sanitized products.
I arrive complete with professional chair and lightening for your and your parties comfort.
I only service ONE BRIDE A DAY so as to never rush my bride or her party.
I have always from day one, given-back to animal rescues and shelters from every makeup done and will always continue to do so.
When you choose me to do your makeup you also help an animal in need!!!
