Some answers to your Frequently Asked Questions.

Contact me at oliviadrod@gmail.com if you can't find your answer below!

Q: Do you travel?

A: Yes, I love to travel! I am based in Indianapolis and I frequently do wedding within Indianapolis, Carmel, Fishers, and Noblesville. Places outside of this area are subject to an initial $50 travel fee, and additional fee may apply based on the venue's distance, but I have never had a booking that conflicted with distance. Please email me to get a travel fee quote for your specific venue.

 Q: Do you do airbrush?

A: Yes! I have an airbrush kit that I love. What’s the difference with Airbrush and traditional foundation you ask? Using the Airbrush technique dries the foundation onto your face during the application; the result is much more sealed and long-wearing. I highly recommend airbrush for brides and those with problematic skin or with extremely dry or extremely oily skin. Chances are that if you’ve had airbrush makeup before, you’ll probably love it. If you haven’t tried it, email me with any questions you have and we can see if it’s a good fit for you!

Q: What kind of makeup do you use?

A: I have a range of brands that I use in my kit, but it is important for me to use all cruelty free and vegan makeup. I do this to appeal to sensitive skin and provide products for my clients with the safest ingredients. All of the products I use in my kit I trust and use on myself! 

Q: What is your makeup style?

A: I try to be very versatile with my approach to makeup! I LOVE dramatic looks with lashes and a bold lip, but honestly, my clientele is has a lot of minimal-makeup women. I don't think makeup should make you feel uncomfortable, and I want you to look like yourself. I do my best to listen to my clients and give them the results they desire! If you aren't a frequent makeup-wearer, email me with any concerns you have, I'm sure we can get a look that works for you. 

Q: Can you do trials for bridesmaids or mothers?

A: Of course! In fact, if you're nervous about getting your makeup done, I'd prefer it. If we do a trial before, we can be prepared for the day of your makeup application with zero stress!

Client Reviews

Olivia is such a talented makeup artist. From the moment I first contacted her, she was professional, courteous and flexible. During our trial, we did a few different looks before deciding on the one I liked best. She never seemed impatient--even though it was on the same day as her very own bridal shower! On my wedding day, Olivia showed up on time and got right to work. Her calming energy helped me stay calm and chill all day long. She did my makeup along with four other bridesmaids. Everyone was incredibly happy with their look, and the makeup lasted throughout the night and well into the early hours of the morning. Olivia's skill at dramatic makeup perfectly complemented my Indian wedding--I would recommend her to anyone. Her talent combined with a terrific attitude make for one amazing artist. Thank you, Olivia!

Olivia did a wonderful job on my wedding makeup! She was professional and efficient, and created a beautiful look which was truly long-lasting - holding up to an entire day's worth of celebration (outdoors on a warm day, no less). I wouldn't hesitate to return to her for future makeup needs, and will recommend her work to friends in the area.

Olivia came and did my makeup for our wedding day and it was everything I dreamed it would be! She was so kind, laid back and professional. She was flexible to ideas and made the experience even more fun. The other bridesmaids and my mother also had their makeup done and everyone loved the finished product and were complimented all day. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

—Ashley Conlon, 2017

Olivia was recommended to me for my bridal makeup by a friend who used her for her wedding. She did SUCH a great job with my friend (and me as a bridesmaid) that I had zero hesitations using her for my own wedding! She is so personable, and made my bridesmaids and me feel so comfortable while we were having our makeup done! On top of that, the makeup she did was flawless! She really listened to how I envisioned myself on my big day and translated that into a beautiful look for the wedding! If I could, I would wake up every morning and have Olivia do my makeup- she is so awesome!!

-Lisa H, 2016

Olivia will always be my first and only choice for a makeup artist and will be highly recommended to anyone looking for the best... whether it's your big day or a trip to the grocery store, Olivia will give you the best tips and tricks. She is THE best and you won't be disappointed!!
