Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q1. Where can I look for your Services & Rates?

The list of my services are available under the Services as well as Bridal Makeup tab. For more enquiries and rates, you can email me at makeupbybenecia@gmail.com or message me at +65 9168 3841. Please state which service you are enquiring for and the details of the event (date, location and time to be ready).

Q2. How do I book your services?

Please complete the event details in the form available at the Contact tab or message me directly at +65 9168 3841. Your time slot is only confirmed once a deposit of 50% is received.

After the transfer, please sms me.  I will send a confirmation after checking and the time slot will be reserved for you.

Q3. Why is a deposit required?

Deposit is required to guarantee the time slot for you. This also avoids any disappointment of not able to engage my service during popular dates. Your appointment will only be confirmed upon receipt of the deposit and not on date of enquiry.

Q4. Do I need a trial? 

This depends on your personal preference.  Trial provides you the chance to try out any ideas that you may have and create the look you are after for your wedding day.

The trial includes one makeup. If hairstyle is required, this can be arranged as well. This is a good time to decide whether you would like your hair up or down. You may bring along sample pictures of hairstyles and make up that appeals to you. Every bride is different, I will tailor your bridal makeup and hair to your preference.

If you are planning to use your own hair accessories, please bring these with you to the trial. If you have not decided yet, we can discuss this on the day.

Please note that bridal makeup and hair during the trial will take longer than on the wedding day due the time required for discussion. Please allocate 1.5 hours for make-up only or hair only. Please allow 2.5 hours for both hair and makeup.

It is a good idea to have a trial a few months before your wedding, appointment can be booked up to 6 months in advance. Trials will be held on weekdays at my studio in Kovan.

Once I have perfected your bridal makeup and hair, you will feel confident and prepared for the big day!

Any other questions you may have about trials please contact Benecia at +65 9168 3841.

Q5. Do you provide hair accessories?

Yes, hair accessories for brides will be provided rent free. A deposit of SGD 100 will be required for every hair accessory loaned. All accessories must be returned within 3 days (only via courier or registered mail) or return personally to me at Kovan. Deposit will be fully refundable upon receiving the accessory in its original condition.

Q6. What should bride take note of a day before her wedding?

Wash your hair with shampoo only. Please avoid using conditioner after washing your hair. Hair which is slightly dry is better for styling purposes, hold curls much better. Blow dry your hair before sleeping.

Apply hydrating face mask and eye mask before sleeping. This will help to moisturize your face and eyes for an easy application of makeup the next day. Stress and lack of sleep tend to cause the face to be dry.

Most importantly, please try to have a good night sleep so you will be a cheerful bride for your BIG day.

Q7. What should a bride take note on her wedding day?

If you wake up with swollen eyes, use an ice cube to massage around your eyes to de-puff your eyes.

Please wear a button shirt for the makeup to ease changing into your gown later on. You may also wear your gown before I arrive your house if time does not permit.

Please also provide me a half-length mirror and a table to set up my makeup items. Natural lighting is preferable when applying makeup.
