Services offered

Smink offers full makeup services for your convenience. Packages include a 2-3 hour trial, two months in advance of your wedding day. The test run includes a pre-wedding photo shoot to help determine the best makeup design for you. You'll get to try different colours, ideas, and styles that are both natural or smokier eye colours. Marianna will arrive early for your wedding day, and assist you with the pre-wedding preparations until the moment of the ceremony. She will gladly help you with any extra wedding day preparations that you need such as flowers, last minute touches on your dress, and so forth.

Other services

Smink also offers airbrush makeup for television, films and photographic schools. Other services include charm school, glitter and stencil make up for children's parties, body art, drag queen styling, and makeup lessons. She can cover scars, minimise your least favourite facial features, and create a long lasting look.
