Frequently asked questions
Q: What kinds/brands of products do you and your team use? Do you offer airbrushing?
Cassidy and her entire team stock their kits with only the best, high quality and professional products to ensure your makeup is of the absolute best quality. Each product used is tried, true and tested for quality and performance by Cassidy and her artists. Some of the team’s favourite brands include Hourglass, MAC, Makeup Forever, Urban Decay, Marc Jacobs, Laura Mercier and Tatcha. Cassidy and her team do not currently offer airbrushing services.
Q: Do you offer on-location hairstyling?
Yes, Cassidy Watt Artistry Collective now offers both on-location and in-studio hairstyling for weddings, events and photo shoots with both Cassidy Watt and Breanne Petersen.
Q: I am interested in booking you and your team’s services, how far in advance do I need to inquire/book?
Cassidy and her team are booking, on average, 12-18 months in advance for wedding dates within the peak season (May-October). Photo shoots and other event makeup are always recommended to be booked 1-2 months in advance, if possible.
Q: What is the process to book you/your team for my wedding or event?
All wedding bookings require a signed bridal agreement and a 30% retainer of the total amount due in order for any date to be reserved. This retainer is non-refundable. For non bridal appointments please inquire directly with Cassidy to set up your appointment time/date and once the booking is official you will receive a confirmation email.
Q: What is a bridal trial? Are they mandatory?
A bridal trial is a chance for yourself and the artist to meet, discuss the desired look for your weddings and run through the look to ensure everything is absolutely perfect for your big day! Although trials are not mandatory, they are highly recommended to ensure everything runs according to plan and as smooth as possible on your wedding day. Frequently brides book their trials before their engagement photos to get a sense of how the hair and/or makeup will photograph. Trials must be booked on a week day during the peak wedding season months (May-October) due to our team being on location for weddings every weekend.
Q: Are false lashes included in your applications?
Due to the popularity of eyelash extensions, false strip lashes are available as an add on to any makeup service. Our base prices do not include lashes, but they can easily be added-on for a small fee. Only quality false lashes are used that are guaranteed to photograph and look wonderful.
Q: How long will it take you to complete my wedding party? Do you ever bring in a secondary artist?
Cassidy and her team book 45 minute appointments for any bridesmaids, mothers or guests and 60 minute appointments for the bride. A timeline will be discussed and decided on once your booking is completed. It is imperative that your party and yourself be on time for all appointments to ensure you are ready at your desired time. A secondary artist may be called in to assist with large bridal parties (typically parties over 8 people total), but this is at the discretion of the artist.
Q: Do you charge a travel fee?
Yes, Cassidy and her team charge a travel fee for any work outside of the Kamloops, BC City Limits. Travel is welcomed and Cassidy and her team often travel throughout the Thompson, Shuswap, and Okanagan to be on location for weddings. Please inquire directly with Cassidy for more information regarding travel fees.
Q: Do you have a studio space for my bridal or non-bridal appointment?
Yes, Cassidy and her team have a studio space located Downtown Kamloops, BC that is available for both bridal and non-bridal appointments.
