What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I try to keep my prices low yet competitive. I charge a flat hourly rate that I feel is fair for the amount of detail and time I put into all of my work.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I try to accommodate my customers needs and special requests the best I can. For example if a client informs me of a specific theme they are having for their event I will update my picture board to accommodate that specific theme for their guests.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a double certified Makeup Artist with lots of experience in my field. I often attend different trainings, workshops and conventions to help me stay up to date with what's new and popular, and I also learn new tips and tricks that come through in my work.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started off doing makeup first then migrated into face and body art. I have always had a passion for art and makeup and this career lets me express that through my work.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with lots of different people at many different events. I have the exclusive face and body art contract at the International Balloon Fiesta that allows me to work with people from all over the world. I have worked for the Governor of New Mexico for one of her special themed parties. I also work at lots of different fairs, fiesta's and large cooperate events.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Something that I specify in all of my quotes is the type of products that I use. I inform future clients that I only use professional FDA approved water based paints and products at all of my events. There are a lot of paints/products out there that if applied to the skin can do major damage. So before deciding on a face and body Artist ask what they are using on their clients.
