Frequently Asked Questions
Should I hire a professional makeup artist for my wedding day?
Yes! It is so important to have professional hair stylists and makeup artists on your wedding day. A professional will ensure that your hair and makeup are done beautifully in a timely manner and will hold up all day. Your wedding day is not a good day to risk doing it yourself, or having a friend do it. Only a professional will make sure your hair and makeup look its absolute best and can withstand the heat, tears, kisses, hugs and the full length of this incredible day. The photos from this day will last a lifetime and a professional will make sure you look perfect in every shot.

Will you travel to my event?
Yes! We will come to any location, anywhere. We are an on-site team so we can provide you with luxury beauty services in the comfort of your choosing. There is a small travel fee associated once outside of the St. Louis area. Inquire about individual rates. Destination packages available upon request.
What type of makeup do you use? Do you use airbrush or traditional?
All of the makeup we use is professional brands that are designed to work on a wide variety of skin tones and types. These products ensure long lasting results and photograph beautifully. Please contact me about specific products or any allergies to ingredients. At Elizabeth Wolf Professional Makeup Artist we use traditional makeup versus airbrush. We find our products and application techniques give the same, if not better long lasting and flawless results as airbrush makeup.
I normally wear little to no makeup, should I still hire a professional?
Absolutely! You don’t have to wear a lot of makeup on your wedding day to look and feel beautiful, it just needs to be applied correctly with the right products. If you don’t want to look too “made up” we can create a soft, natural look that makes you feel like yourself. It is only important that your makeup lasts, looks great in photos, and that you feel confident- which is not defined by how much makeup you have on. During your trial run, we will create the look to match your vision.
Can I pay for myself and everyone else pay you separately?
Unfortunately, no, pricing and payment are handled as one total balance for all services being performed. The reason being is our packages are set up to be the minimum requirement for bridal beauty services, with add-ons to suit your particular parties needs. This makes it less stressful for all of us so we don’t have to be exchanging money on the day of. Most brides will cover a portion of services for her trial run and day of makeup and then split the rest between everyone else. If there is one price you want everyone to pay, you can do so and then cover the remaining amount yourself. It’s totally up to you how you decide to split it up. Payment plans leading up to the wedding date are available upon request.
