shelby dines makeup FAQ


What is airbrush makeup?

To create the perfect look, airbrush makeup is an amazing choice. It applies evenly and gently, and is hypoallergenic (who wants to have a reaction to something on his or her wedding day?!). It is a liquid makeup that does not run when you cry, does not need retouching, and remains perfect throughout hours on a dance floor. After all, your wedding night is as important as the reception. You should look great after the guests have left.

What makeup brands do you work with?

We will work together to develop a strong selection of products and brands for your look. My kit includes Temptu Professional Airbrush Makeup, Face Atelier, RCMA, MaqPro, Make Up For Ever, YSL, Hourglass, Viseart, Kevyn Aucoin, Shu Uemure, Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury, Lorac, Estee Lauder, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs, Ben Nye, Bobbi Brown, Armani, Eve Pearl, Laura Mercier, Too Faced, Kryolan, Senna, Whip Hand Cosmetics, Embryolisse, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Urban Decay, Lancome, Dior, Nars, Stila, Guerlain, Benefit, Chanel, and more.

What additional services do you offer?

A lot of people like to use their own hair stylist, but I also work with a few great stylists here in Pittsburgh. Please contact me to discuss their rates and availability.

You’re a licensed esthetician. What skin care services do you offer?

As a licensed esthetician, I’m qualified to bring you and your wedding party an assortment of wonderful options prior to your wedding. From waxing to facials and exfoliation, I believe fully in the power of not just great makeup, but beautiful skin underneath. When we meet, we’ll discuss a skin care plan that will leave your skin beautiful and soft, even under your makeup.

What about body waxing?

Body hair should be the last thing you worry about on your big day and during your honeymoon. I offer full waxing services so you don’t have to worry about stubble and razor burn when your moment arrives. We’ll use soft and/or hard wax to perfectly remove unwanted hairs. And yes, being a licensed esthetician, I will provide you a gentle and nearly painless experience. We can even book the entire bridal party for a waxing party prior to your wedding.

What happens after my wedding or event is over?

You’re going to love how you look for your event, but what happens when that’s over? How can you keep your skin looking the same as it did on the day you got married?

We’ll go over the perfect skin care plan for you before your event. We’ll talk about all the things you can do to help fix the problems specific to you and prevent problems that may run in your family. We can talk about products, makeup, techniques, skin care options and even diet–all things that will create a healthier, more beautiful you.

What will my experience be like?

Sanitary conditions and equipment are extremely important to me. I follow the very highest standards of sterile application. I would never compromise your skin or health by providing you with less than the highest standards in cleanliness and sanitation.

After our makeup session, I will provide my bride with a touch-up kit designed specifically for you to last you throughout the evening. We can also work out a situation where I will remain on hand as your personal makeup artist throughout the event, if you would like.

When it comes to your makeup solutions, I believe it is important to listen. I promise to be patient and understanding of what you want, and to share with you my expertise and knowledge on how to best achieve your look. It’s your day. You should wear your confidence as well as your makeup. I am glad to be a calm presence on the day of your event, and our time together will be one of the most enjoyable and relaxing moments of your big day.
