FAQs

Additional Information

Q:  Why do I need to hire a professional makeup artist for my wedding or event?

A:  You're hiring a professional for your pictures, a professional for your cake, a professional for your flowers, and a professional for your hair, so why wouldn't you hire a professional for your makeup, too? A professional makeup artist not only ensures that your makeup will last all day and all night, but that it will photograph beautifully in all lighting conditions as well. From the appropriate products down to the specific colors, a professional makeup artist customizes everything to you and your wedding vision. Your pictures are going to last a lifetime, and you want to make sure that your makeup looks flawless, and an experienced professional knows just how to do that.


Q:  How far in advance should I book my date?

A:  Since Enhanced Beauty Artistry is mobile and we provide makeup services throughout the state (and out-of-state too), there really isn't a typical wedding season for us, so we do recommend that brides book with us as soon as possible. The typical booking time frame is 6-8 months prior, but 9-18 months in advance is not unheard of anymore. Did you plan for everything BUT your makeup artist? Don't worry! It's never too late to book either, so there just may be an opening in our books for you!


Q:  How do I secure my booking with you?

A:  We book on a first come, first reserve basis. In order to secure your date, we require a signed agreement and a retainer (50% of the full agreement amount). Once both the signed agreement and retainer are received, your date will be secured.


Q:   Do you provide services on-site?

A:  Absolutely! Enhanced Beauty Artistry is 100% mobile. Whether you are wanting makeup services provided at your home, hotel, or the venue, we are able to come to you to any location. Plus, hiring a professional that comes to you offers you the luxury of being pampered with your bridal party, and who doesn't want to be pampered on their special day!?


Q:  Do you do a bridal trial?

A: Trials are required for all brides. Nothing would be more stressful for the bride (and the artist) than showing up on the day of your wedding and having a miscommunication between the look that you want and the look that your artist creates. This is why we always do a trial.

Ideally, we like to schedule your trial 4-12 weeks prior to your wedding day. At the trial, we will discuss the details of your wedding, including your gown, flowers, theme, colors, bridesmaids dresses, hair, etc. All of these tie into your overall makeup look. Then we will go over the specifics of the look that you have in mind. Photos of makeup looks that you like, or don't like, are always welcome, and will definitely help to communicate ideas between you and the artist. Any skincare issues or allergies that you may have will also be addressed, as they will influence the products used.


Q:  Do you only do the bride's makeup, or can you do my bridal party as well?

A:  We can absolutely do the entire bridal party! Mothers and grandmothers, too! Whether your party is small or large, we can accommodate everyone. If needed, additional makeup artists are also available (at an additional fee).

We do require a three (3) person minimum booking (Bride +2) for all local bookings, or rate equivalent. Travel in excess of 90 minutes round trip requires a five (5) person minimum booking (Bride +4), or rate equivalent.


Q:  Do you do airbrush foundation?

A:  Yes, We do offer Airbrush Foundation Makeup Applications. We Only Use The Best For Our Clients, Ensuring Long Lasting Results With Makeup That Feels Light As Air. 


Q:  Can I just get my eyes done?

A:  Enhanced Beauty Artistry does not offer partial services such as eyes only or foundation only. We want your entire makeup to be complete and cohesive with the look that you envisioned for your special day. By providing full makeup services, this ensures that your, and your bridal party's makeup, looks its best!


Q:  Do you only do makeup for weddings?

A:  Our services are available for all of your makeup needs. Enhanced Beauty Artistry provides makeup services for weddings, special events such as proms, anniversaries, and holiday parties, boudoir or maternity shoots, family or high school senior pictures, print/commercial work, all types of photography, personal makeup lessons, and everyday makeup.

Dominique was my MUA for my wedding reception back in my hometown after my husband and I were married in Mexico. She was incredible! So extremely professional and clearly cared immensely about me, her client, and perfecting my look for my big day. I had so many compliments on my make up and felt beautiful with her work staying on all night! I would (and already have) recommend her to anyone. Loved my experience!

​- Jordan Spurgeon

Dominique is an incredible MUA! She did my makeup and hair for a styled shoot and everything turned out beautifully. Not only is she a skillful artist, but she’s also very personable and fun to work with!​

​- Rebecca Suen

Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Dominique has such a gifted talent for makeup artistry and pays close attention to individual preference and detail. Pleased to have such a satisfying service and at the same time having someone who truly cares about their clients. Thank you so much!

​- Tess Cracchiolo

I just wanted to take a minute and recognize my amazing makeup artist I had for the wedding. She did an awesome job! I cried, I danced, I sweated, and my make up stayed perfect the entire night! I am so happy that this woman is the one I chose for my engagement pictures and my wedding day. I had a VERY stressful morning the day of the wedding and when she arrived it all melted away. I was able to sit back, relax, and be pampered. Not only did she do a fantastic job on my makeup but my hair was perfect! She is so personable and bubbly and it really lightened my spirits.

Thank you so much Dominique Ruiz! ❤ I wish you could come do my hair and makeup for me every day! Lol

-Sarah Switzer

Dominique did an incredible job! Was diligent, competent,  very well versed in cleaning,  prepping, and understanding color and how to bring the best attributes of my daughter's skin! Love this girl! Thank you Dominque!

- Marnie Reppert

"As my girls were preparing for prom we faced an issue we'd never dealt with before. Our international student is Vietnamese and doesn't have a creased eyelid. Having just turned 16 she had no idea how to do her makeup, and we had no idea how to give her the appearance of a creased lid like she wanted. Dominique (Nikki) did an AMAZING job!!! Both girls looked absolutely georgeous! She was even able to mask acne. We love her work. She truly has a natural eye for beauty and how to bring out a persons natural beauty and accentuate it to create a variety of looks!" - Angela Meyer

"I loved the way my makeup turned out, very elegant and tasteful. Dominique created an AMAZING eye, it was beautiful! I could wear this look to any special occasion confidently, I don't wear a lot of makeup day to day so making a special look feel natural is huge. She is also so sweet and fun to talk to while she is making you gorgeous!" - Kacie Ulsh

"We had Dominique do a personal makeup lesson and it was so fun! She personalized it, is very professional and knowledgeable. Fun girls day!" - Lauren Morris

"Dominique did a wonderful job on my makeup for my wedding. I felt beautiful. I'd recommend her to anyone." - Megan Elliot

"My makeup was bold but not overdone. Dominique was very insightful when I had questions and gave me tips for the future! Overall a wonderful experience that I would highly recommend." - Allison Ring

"Dominique did the Wedding make up for myself and my bridesmaids! She did a great job with everyone! I am not a huge make up person, so she did everything to make me feel comfortable with the more natural make up look and I felt so beautiful all day! It was also 95 degrees out and my make-up held up all day! She is such a sweet person and anyone would be lucky to have her be their makeup artist for any reason!" - Shannon Mertens

Dominique is one of the best Stylists for Hair & Makeup I have worked with! She knows what she is doing, uses high end/professional grade products only, and great attention to detail. Highly recommend for your hair & makeup for wedding or other events!

​-Linsey Tyler

From the initial call to the very end of the shoot, Dominique was very professional, cooperative, and upbeat. My models loved her friendly personality and attentiveness to their needs. She exemplified knowledge in her field and craft. She exceeded my expectations and she is a true make up artist. Without Dominique at my first photoshoot. I do not think it would've went as well as it did. My cosmetic line, Three21, could not have been as well displayed with anyone else. I truly recommend Dominique for anyone trying to break into the beauty industry.

​- Kelli Bush

Dominique was so much fun to work with! She knew exactly how to apply my makeup so it played up my best features, and I was so in awe with the results. To top it off, the way she styled my hair looked so effortless but stunning, and lasted me the entire day ( and then some!)

​- Chandini Avvaru

Who says weddings don't start on time? Enhanced Beauty Artistry got everyone ready to go for my wedding AHEAD of schedule, and everyone looked flawless!

​- Christine Cracchiolo

By far one of the best make up artist in the industry!!!!! Bags she fixed them, I don’t wear lipstick she found the perfect color, skin tone she had no problem matching perfectly!!! I have not felt pretty this whole pregnancy and she took them insecurities and made this Momma feel beautiful!

​- Jaime Sue

Dominque is passionate about working with her clients. Her bubbly personality is contagious and genuine. She visualizes an image and she follows through with her work. I appreciate her attentiveness to every detail. I received so many compliments on my hair and makeup. I was so pleased that I found it hard for me to want to get rid of the make up at the end of the day. I am very likely to recommend her makeup services for any occasion. Her professionalism is what reels you in and her personality is what will keep you coming back.​

​- Chelsea Aye

"Domi is amazing and so professional, but still fun!! She did our bridal party for a wedding and everyone looked flawless!! Definitely recommend to anyone needing makeup done for any event!" - Jenni Cook

"In my position as event coordinator for Baileys' Restaurants, I got the chance to meet Dominique and hear about all the amazing things she can do for clients! She is passionate and talented, and would be a joy to work with." - Rae Ensor

"This woman is fantastic at what she does, every little detail is looked over with a fine tooth comb! But that's not just what makes her an amazing HMUA, her personality is the real kicker. She's kind hearted and cares about the client in her seat, would recommend her to anyone needing hair and makeup done for any event or photoshoot. Hire this woman! " - Haley Natasha Sims

"I worked with Dominique on a boudoir photo. Her attention to detail was simply amazing. It was the first time that I did not have to do any touch ups using photoshop. The makeup and hair was flawless. What else can I say other than the girl's got skills." -Marcus Lashah Walker

She is so knowledgeable and tells you about each product she puts on your face!! She makes you feel comfortable and is great at what she does. She also helped me change my skin care routine. Love this lady! Can’t wait to use her again!

​-Andrea Enger

"She has a true talent for beauty! Before I had my trial with her we spoke over the phone and she is extremely knowledgeable about all of her products.

Thank you for making me the beautiful bride I hoped to be!"

- Leslie Morrow

"If you're wanting to look amazing for you're next special event then I would definitely recommend Dominique! She does an amazing job and keeps up with the latest styles and trends! Whatever the occasion or if you're just wanting to feel special she's the one to go to! She's also very friendly and will make you feel like a long lost friend is doing your makeup!"

- Nicole Bauridl

"I highly recommend Dominique for your next big event, photo shoot, etc. where you want to look fabulous! She has extensive knowledge on make up and techniques. Not only does she find colors that flatter your features she also takes the time to teach you how to replicate your new look. When I first came in to have my make up done by Dominique I was hesitant because everyone else I went to made my foundation too light and I looked ghostly. She matched it perfectly, gave me the flawless look I was hoping to accomplish since I had acne to hide, and she even gave me a BIG tip on how to grow out my eyebrows and penciled in what they should look like. I took her advice and now get compliments all the time." - Tanya Sjodin

"I wouldn't use anyone else to do my makeup. I told her I wanted to look natural (even though I wear quite a bit of product) and she created a flawless natural look and explained how to do it so I could do it myself! So knowledgeable and fun to work with. 10/10 would use again."

- Brooke Freed

"I hired Dominique for a professional photo shoot and she asked all the right questions to make sure she had the right look for the shoot. When she did my makeup she educated me along the way, used all high-end makeup and was particular about the cleanliness of my skin and her brushes with application. In the end, I was more than amazed with the look she provided! I e had makeup artists in the past and no one took the time like she did to make it perfect! I've referred her to my friend who is a wedding photographer for her clients as well... nothing but pure positive reviews. Thanks Dominique!" - Jaclyn Avenevoli Schmitz 

"It would be hard to pinpoint only one thing that makes Dominque exquisite at her craft. She has a hard job - not only is her goal to 'make' me beautiful, but to make me 'feel' beautiful. She does it flawlessly. She takes her time, pays attention of your beauty and makeup goals and preferences, and explains every step of the way so that you might be able to mimic even a sliver of what she accomplishes. If I could have her do my makeup every day, I would. She is my go-to for photos, television, and big events where I absolutely want to put my best face forward."
