Meet Evelyn Mauro. Makeup artist extraordinaire, and one of the kindest and most talented wedding professionals you will ever meet. We are so excited to have her as one of our featured vendors!
How long have you been doing makeup?
I have been a professional makeup artist for 7 years. Looking back it was always one of my favorite past times. I have always enjoyed practicing, learning, and developing my own signature style.
What is the inspiration for your makeups style?
My inspiration comes from each and every client that sits in my chair. Each client is unique and has different expectations and desires for their make up. Therefore I like to customize each experience to the client and focus on enhancing their natural beauty. I am also inspired by the current fashions, trends, and styles around us and enjoy learning daily from other professionals and trend-setters.
How should brides get their skin ready?
I wholeheartedly believe in pro-active skin care…especially when a bride is preparing for the most important day of her life! It is an area I specialize in. Since every client is unique, I begin assessment at a one on one pre-consultation. During this meeting we discuss areas of concern and formulate a personalized routine with trusted products matched to each clients beauty needs. Naturally, washing the face twice a day, exfoliating, and moisturizing is a good place to start.
How do you help brides choose the right makeup for their wedding day?
First, I request the bride brings pictures to our consultation of makeup that she is naturally drawn to. Then I ask what she likes about each image, I share my interpretation, and together we come up with a perfect concept and I get to work! This is how I utilize the bride’s vision, and inject my expert knowledge to create the perfect make up style for her big day.
What products do you use?
I use all professional quality products including but not limited to, Clinique, Lancome, Estee Lauder, Benefit, Nars, and MAC. In order to stay current I am constantly discovering and playing with new makeup to add to my evolving collection.
What should brides look for in a makeup artist?
I feel that brides should look for someone who is committed to their wishes and desires. The makeup artist should be attuned to the bride’s feelings and style. The artist should have a flexible schedule and be willing to go the extra mile to make the bride feel confident in every way. Lastly, the artist should be personable, calming, and friendly since the bride will be spending a significant amount of time with this person on their wedding day.
Will you travel, and is there a fee?
Yes! I am a proud, on-location artist. I believe that traveling to the bride on her wedding day alleviates so much stress; it’s priceless! Each package includes free travel within 25 miles of the Coeur d’Alene area. Outside of this radius there is a small travel charge.
What is the price range for your packages?
Packages start at $55 and top off at about $130 per person depending on styling services requested. I am extremely flexible and can build custom packages for each client based on their specific needs.
Do you do bridal party packages?
Yes. I can do up to 8 people on a wedding day and offer a few different “party-package” options for each group depending on what they are looking for.
