Do you offer a cheaper price if I bring my own lashes/ products? No, my prices are fixed regardless of if you bring your own lashes/ products or not.
If I cancel my booking, what happens to my deposit?

Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable. 

What happens if I am running late to my appointment? That's completely fine! As long as you reach out to me and let me know. I do also charge a $15 late fee.
Will I receive a touch up kit after the appointment? Yes! You will receive a complimentary touch up kit which includes a powder puff, lipstick sample, 1ml of lash glue, q-tips, mascara wand and a mint at the end of every appointment.

Will you take before/ after photos of me? I will only take photos/ videos of you as well as use them on my social media pages if you give me consent to. 
How long before my event should I book the appointment? I always recommend to give yourself at least 30 minutes to an hour of extra time before your event. This will allow time for traffic as well as any other issues you may face getting from your appointment to your event. 
What happens if I make an online booking but I do not pay the deposit before the appointment? You will receive an email immediately after your online booking to pay the deposit to secure your time slot. If that deposit is not paid within 24hrs of the online booking, I will reach out to you again and if you do not respond, the booking will automatically be cancelled.
Do you offer any bridal makeup services? Yes I do! For more information on my bridal makeup services, please navigate to my 'Bridal Makeup' page and fill out my 'Booking Enquiry Form' to enquire.
Do you offer cheaper makeup services if I am after a more "natural" makeup look? My makeup service has a fixed price regardless of how dramatic the desired makeup look is. 

Step 1: Align band with natural lash line & trim excess if needed.

Step 2: Apply MNQE BEAUTY lash adhesive to lash band, wait 15 seconds for adhesive to get tacky.

Step 3: Place the lash in the centre of your natural lashes, using MNQE BEAUTY lash applicator, push the inner side of strip lash in place followed by outer.

Step 4: Press lashes against natural lashes. All done!

Flawless makeup

Monique has done my makeup for a number of occasions now, and have always left Monique’s chair with the most flawless glam.

Her attention to detail is like no other, and is always very client oriented.
I cannot wait to be glammed by you again ✨

The perfect special occasion glam!

Monique did such an amazing job with our makeup for our brothers wedding! The makeup lasted all night and was still flawless even after shedding some tears. She asked questions that helped us figure out what we were after and made sure throughout the application we were comfortable and able to speak up if we wanted to change anything. We both got many compliments throughout the night and I would definitely recommend her to family and friends!! 🫶🏻
