Q&A | The Verve Lounge

Why we recommend a makeup trial?

On your trial day is when we meet, discuss, plan, and make your dream look come true. It’s like a practice session in preparation for an appearance. After we create your makeup look that is perfect for you, we will discuss wedding day timelines. Our job is to make you feel totally relaxed in every way possible.

All facial waxing and beauty treatments should be completed at least one week before your trial/wedding day. If you will be having a spray tan on your wedding day, please ensure you also have one for your trial, as the same makeup will appear different against a tanned skin.


Mobile and Destination Event

Travel can be arranged to any location on your Wedding/ Event day. The Verve Lounge is located in Clayfield Brisbane, so the option to have your makeup done at this location is also available. Destination weddings can be arranged (POA).


Why hire The Verve Lounge for your special Event?

It is extremely important to have a professional makeup artist create your makeup look on your wedding day or event. Knowing how to apply makeup to be camera ready is completely different from applying your everyday makeup look. A professional Makeup Artist not only considers your skin tone, eye colour and hair colour, they choose the best application method for the types of light sources that will be present when your photos are taken. You can expect a relaxing, calming, and personalised experience. It’s a time for us to enhance your best features, ultimately creating the perfect look for your most special day. We will spend as much time as we need in order to achieve what you’ve dreamed of, lashes included!


How far in advance of my event should I contact you?

There are so many important vendors that you have to consider on your wedding day, with your photographer being one of the most important and most likely a large portion of your budget. You want to look at your photos and the timeless beauty of your day with memories that will last a lifetime. We book up quickly, so reserve your date as soon as possible, as your choice of a professional makeup artist will greatly affect the outcome of your priceless photos.


What is included in Indian Bridal?

To achieve a flawless and colourful finish for your Hair and Makeup, you will need to allocate 4 hours for your artist to complete your chosen look. Having a Hair and Makeup trial is essential for this option, as the Hair, Makeup and Outfit settings can take time to perfect. Your Professional artist will set all jewellery including Bindiya and Duptta/vail.


What is Microdermabrasion?

An advanced deep mechanical exfoliation that is suitable for all skins (excluding sensitised and rosacea skins) that improves several skin conditions. Microdermabrasion has endless benefits. It is proven to soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, by polishing dry and coarse areas. It can decrease the harsh appearance of scars and enlarged pores and reduce hyper-pigmentation or age spots.


Why is Oxygen treatment important?

Oxygen is one of the most essential elements for human life. The oxygen that we inhale from the air around us helps keep our body and skin free from impurities and toxins. The use of purified oxygen onto the skin infuses oxygen into the skin cells allowing better penetration of products and stimulating the skins health, as well as being anti-bacterial on the skin and for acne. Using oxygen to infuse the Babor ampoules delivers the liquids into the skin quicker and leaves the skin immediately more hydrated and plump.


The benefits of Enzyme Peeling?

Enzymes are derived from plants, and when used on the skin they target and remove only dead skin cells, making them suitable for all skin types. Enzymes speed up the natural chemical reactions in the skin that renew our skin cells. This helps reduce the appearance of scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, uneven skin tone and improve the skins texture. The skin is instantly illuminized and revitalised because this exfoliation removes all dead skin.


What is involve in “Skin Needling”?

The treatment involves the use of sterile titanium micro needles that puncture the skins surface triggering multiple responses within the cells in the skin. These responses triggered stimulate our skins own natural healing phases which in turn produce brand new collagen and elastin fibres, new blood vessels and new skin cells. Literally transforming our skin from the inside out.

  • Ageing (lines & wrinkles)
