Our artists have experience with all types of skin and skin issues. Our artists have dealt with so many different women of all shades and types of skin. . We ask that you bring your skincare with you and any products that you currently use that work for your skin. Sometimes it’s best to use what the skin is used to. Also it helps if you send us a picture without any makeup on so one of our experts can determine which products will be right for you. At Styling Trio, everything is always tailored according to your specific needs.
Yes! The airbrush makeup is the best option for our clients celebrating their events in tropical climates. Our makeup technique blends traditional concealers and foundation, then seals the look with airbrush. LIghtweight layers provide a “barely there” classic makeup application that is also highly water-resistant and has a guaranteed wear until the sun comes up (approx. 14 hours). Our founder, Adrian, started the agency based on what airbrush makeup can do for skin and to this day it’s our smokin’ gun! It’s also great for grooms and groomsmen as it helps combat shine. All of our services include HD airbrushing and false lashes. (eyelash strips and individual lash applications available.) Feel free to bring your own favorite pair of lashes and we will gladly apply them for you.
A great team of artists will make sure your hair and makeup stay put throughout your entire wedding. Mother Nature has her moments, so we need to assess which hairstyles would work best depending on the weather, wind, and if the event will be indoors or outside on the beach. Makeup stands up extremely well in the tropical climates we work in, however, in the summer months, we strongly recommend touch-ups, especially if you perspire a lot.
We do not but we ask that you come prepared with the following items to help ensure a flawless you.
Your touch-up kit should include:
Lip gloss, blush, translucent powder, bobby pins (ask your hair stylist to leave some for you) and a travel-size can of hairspray. Lastly, before your makeup artists leave, ask for a layer of setting spray in case it hasn’t already been applied.

However, in the event you’d like to go in another direction after the completed trial, you’ll have to book another trial, and additional charges may apply. It’s something we will need to discuss in the event a retrial is needed. Most importantly, the team has made contact with you, and everyone has a better idea of what to expect.

Here are a few more hair and makeup tips to ensure you look absolutely stunning on your special day:
Don’t be afraid of cream products, they are your friend. You’ll find you’ll have a harder time if you use powder because the combination of powder, sweat, and humidity won’t be a good option. Cream products tend to move with your skin and melt in leaving the pigment behind and when sealed with setting spray, it not only increases the color intensity but it also improves the extended wear of your makeup.
For your skin, follow your regular cleansing routine and if wearing moisturizer or sunscreen on your face, please apply it at least 45 minutes before the appointment.
When you are at your sunny destination for your wedding, please protect your skin with sunblock/screen and do not expose yourself too much to sun and try to always wear a hat to protect your face/chest/shoulders from the sun. Tan lines from the swimwear may not look nice in your dress, pick swimsuits without straps visible when wearing your dress. Drink a lot of water!
Tip: Look for inspiration pictures of brides/women with similar facial features and skin tone.
For straight/wavy hair:
Wash your hair the previous day with shampoo only, no hair conditioner.
If you are envisioning wearing your hair down, consider hair extensions! Thosel help a lot with volume and curls last longer on hair extensions than your own hair, just make sure they are made with 100% human hair and clips in 🙂
Curly hair is very porous and requires extra amounts of hydration to keep it from frizzing. We recommend using leave-in treatments, hydrating shampoos and conditioners, etc. Our favorite products for curly hair are Paul Mitchell’s “Beautifully Confident Curls”. you know your hair best and what are the products that suit it. Keeping yourself hydrated inside and out is always best!
