What to Expect
When you hire me, you are hiring a professional hair and makeup artist. I am always 15 minutes early, and I always give the best quality service to my clients! Here are some of my 5 star reviews!
“Breeauna did my makeup for my sister’s wedding and I absolutely loved it!! Breeauna is so friendly and professional. She made sure we all were happy with our looks and went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. I wholeheartedly recommend Breeauna if you need your makeup done for a special day!”
– Amy E.
“As soon as I met Breeauna she came across as extremely genuine. She loves her work and takes pride in it. I got my makeup done by her recently and never felt so beautiful! She was so professional before, during, and after. Above all she was grateful for my business. I’ve had my makeup done by other people but Breeauna is truly an artist. I had no clue what I wanted so she took my input and did my makeup to show my facial strengths; she knew just what to do! I so glad I know about her!”
– Jill E.
“Breeauna is an absolute pleasure to work with. As a stylist, some makeup artists are difficult to work around, however she is very accommodating. Her work speaks for itself, and her professionalism is unparalleled. I will always suggest her as a makeup artist to brides who hire me for hair.”
– Christine R.
“Already so much talent and experience for being a young professional. She was able to execute exactly what I was hoping for, and on top of that she is such a sweet heart while still very professional. I don’t wear much makeup so I wanted someone who had a lot of knowledge to help me out for a natural bridal look without making me look different. My makeup trials went perfectly and I don’t think I would trust anyone else to do my makeup on my wedding day!! Highly recommended.”
– Tara B.
“I worked with Breeauna, as a photographer for a bridal/prom makeup/hair session. She was very professional not only to myself but to the hairstylist and the model. She kept everyone informed as to what she was doing and the look she wanted to achieve and she worked quick but very efficient!! Her work really shines through in the photos! I look forward to working with her again!”
– Gina O.
“Professional, fresh and amazing at what she does!! I felt so comfortable and beautiful being in her hands. My hubby LOVED my look as much as I did and I can not wait to book a class to learn how to make myself pretty!!!”
– Brenda T.
“If you’re looking for someone who knows what they’re doing then you’ve found the right person! Breeauna not only has incredible talent, but has an eye for perfection. Her skills are some of the best I’ve seen and its no secret that the work she does is breathtaking. On top of all that, she is the sweetest person ever! It’s so easy to make conversations with her, which makes the experience so much more fun! She is humble, beautiful, and a true expertise at makeup and hair! As a model, I work with tons and tons of makeup artists and I have to say, Breeauna is by far one of the best ones I’ve ever worked with!”

Additional Booking Notes
I'm sure you have some questions to ask me... Here is a few frequently asked questions and answers. If your question was not answered here, please contact me at (email hidden)!
WHAT MAKEUP BRANDS DO YOU USE?
There are plenty of brands in the cosmetic industry but the products that I use are quality professional brands that give long lasting results and photograph flawlessly! My kit consists of brands that are purchased through professional retailers and are not brands that you will typically find in the stores. A few of my favorite brands are, but not limited to, Viseart, Urban Decay, Makeup Forever, Graftobian, RCMA, Ben Nye and Smashbox! If you have any concerns regarding cosmetics or hair products, feel free to contact me!
HOW DO YOU KEEP YOUR MAKEUP AND HAIR KIT CLEAN?
As a hair and makeup artist I have learned that every client has germs that can be contagious. Before any service starts I will thoroughly sanitize my hands, and make sure that I am using clean brushes. My brushes are kept sanitary between clients by an alcohol based antibacterial brush cleaner. My makeup and hair kit is sanitized between each and every client. The use of my spatula and disposables prevent cross-contamination between clients. Lipsticks and cream products are always scraped out, I do NOT double dip. It is important to identify that your makeup artist is sanitary!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE YOU TO PERFORM A SERVICE?
When I am performing a service I will work in a timely manner, but still deliver the quality that my clients are looking for. I allow 60 minutes for the brides hair, and 60 minutes for the brides makeup. This is a total of 2 hours. For other attendees I allow 45 minutes per hairstyle, and 30 minutes per makeup application. I will often bring on other talented hairstylists and makeup artists to accommodate large bookings. I will work with any time restraints the bride and the bridal party may have.
IS THERE A MINIMUM TO BOOK WITH YOU?
There is a minimum of $250 for all Saturday bookings. If you don’t have enough attendees needing services to meet the minimum, that is okay! You are more than welcome to book with me at that fixed rate. The reason for a minimum is to ensure that the artist will not miss out on any bigger bookings.
DO YOU PROVIDE ON-SITE SERVICES? IS THIS AN ADDITIONAL FEE?
As a bridal hair and makeup artist I have found that it is less stress on the bride if I travel to her location. Why go to a salon where it might be chaotic? Let me come to wherever you are most comfortable and convenient for you and your bridal party! As long as the bride is understanding of my travel rates, I am willing to come out to her on the big day! I charge 50 cents per mile outside of a 10 mile radius of my home location in Country Club Hills Illinois. The paying client is responsible for any bridge tolls and parking charged. These charges are forwarded to the person who signed the contract. I may add that all hair and makeup trials are done at my home location, unless something else works better for the client!
HOW CAN I LOCK MY WEDDING DATE WITH YOU?
In order to lock in your wedding date with me, I require a signed contract, and a $10 deposit off of each service. Please remember that the bride is liable and in charge of payment. I can not reserve a wedding date unless a contract has been signed, and a retainer has been paid. This retainer is non-transferable and non-refundable. The deposits will go toward the remaining balance that is due to the client.
