Wedding Bride with Professional Makeup


In-studio trial makeup is your chance to find the look you adore, which will be immortalized in your wedding photographs to cherish for a lifetime! The trial gives you a sense of how your makeup will be applied on your wedding day. This is when you and Carmina decide together on the look that you feel the most comfortable with and reflects who you are as a woman. Here are a few things you should know about your makeup trial process. Understanding what to expect and how to prepare will help to make it as effective as possible.

Before makeup trial:

Determine your skin type: Share with me this information, and any known allergies or irritants.

Educate yourself about makeup styles: do some research before the trial and bring examples of looks you like.

Establish the overall color scheme for your wedding dress and hairdo: Bring pictures to discuss together.

“The makeup trial session will help me discover who my client is. It’s most important for me to understand her vision so I can bring it to life.” ~ Carmina-Cristina

During makeup trial:

Be on time: this will allow both of us to communicate effectively and do the trial without feeling rushed.

I will want to get to know you closely, listen respectfully to your ideas and opinions, and try to put them in practice.

As your makeup professional, I will give you advice on what looks best suit your facial features and personality. I might even suggest looks that you haven’t yet considered, but which may work best for you.

Communicate freely with me. If you don’t like something, speak up. Try to be as specific as possible: Is it the blush? Is it the lip color? This will help me to pinpoint the problem and correct it.

Have fun!

After makeup trial:

Makeup and skin interact with each other in a way that even the most experienced artists cannot always predict. So after the trial, you will need to “live” in the makeup for a bit and provide feedback to me. For example, if it wears off too quickly, or after wearing it for a while you would like to alter it a bit, then be sure to tell me about it. This way I know in advance on what adjustments I need to make during the wedding day.

“A marriage is a joyous occasion and I believe the preparations should be too!” ~ Carmina-Cristina


Regardless of what Bridal package you purchase, on the wedding day you will benefit from the same highly professional service, highest quality materials and attention to detail you deserve.

Bride will receive:

    • Rejuvenating facial treatment to hydrate and brighten the skin.

    • Airbrush foundation application followed by detailing the cheeks, eyes, eyebrows and lips.

    • Eyelash extensions to better define the eyes and make them stand out.

    • Signature retouching lip color to maintain the fresh look throughout the day and evening.

Each Bridesmaid will receive:

    • Airbrush foundation application followed by detailing the cheeks, eyes, eyebrows and lips.

    • Signature retouching lip color.

    • If requested, eyelash extensions at additional cost of $35 per person.


Airbrush makeup application is the method of choice of most professional makeup artists when doing bridal makeup. The method utilizes a small air compressor, an airbrush gun, and special airbrush liquid foundation. This foundation—which is either water based or silicone based—is thinner than regular liquid foundation as it needs to pass through the airbrush gun nozzle.

When activated, the airbrush gun sprays a very fine mist of foundation on the skin, pushed through with gentle air pressure from the compressor. Handled by an experienced artist, the airbrush method allows a consistent application of foundation which sits evenly on the skin. Because of the fine misted spray, airbrush makeup provides a flawless coverage, evening out skin’s imperfections while still allowing the skin to breath. The final result gives you a very natural, yet very finished and polished look.

    Other advantages of using airbrushing include:

    • Long lasting and waterproof: holds out thru heat, humidity and tears!

    • Multi-layered coverage, sheer texture, lightweight; minimizes wrinkles and fine lines.

    • Ideal for any skin type, does not clog skin pores.

    • Mimics skin’s natural texture and provides a true skin-like appearance.

    • Imparts a soft-focus effect that radiates a healthy and youthful glow.

    • Best for professional videos and photography.


    • A signed contract and 50% deposit are required in order to book the services on the wedding date.

    • Remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the event day.

    • The Bride is the responsible party for the total fee of the purchased package.

    • All rates are based on the information stated in the contract, such as location and date of wedding, number of people in the bridal party, etc.

    • Adding more people or purchasing extra services will have to be booked separately.

    • Trial makeup requires an appointment and takes place at Carmina Cristina Boutique in Camp Hill, PA.

    • For remote wedding locations, additional travel charges will be negotiated.

    • Carmina Cristina shall not be liable for any direct or consequential damages arising out of the performance of services under this booking.

    • We regret, but no refunds are due if the Bride cancels the booking.

    • Checks returned for no-funds will be charged $45.00 on top of any bank fees.

Carmina was a true pleasure to work with! She has such a bubbly personality and makes you feel so comfortable. If something isn’t quite to your taste, she makes it right and makes sure you feel beautiful on your special day.
I got so many compliments on my makeup. The best part was that it didn’t feel like I was even wearing any! I highly recommend the airbrush technique. My 4 bridesmaids and even the mothers had their make-up done with rave reviews. Definitely book Carmina!!
