Introduction: Hi there! My name is Vani Leon, lead artist of Vani Leon Beauty - Luxury Makeup + Hair. My passion and knowledge of skincare and makeup artistry, combined with my enhancing and natural approach will ensure that you look and feel beautiful on the inside and out. I have 10 years of experience in the beauty industry, during which I have been able to express my creativity in a variety of areas such as: Beauty, Bridal, Print, TV/Film, and Stage/Theater. Through my experience I’ve had the opportunity to work with men and women from all backgrounds, ages, skin tones and skin types. This has provided me with a great advantage when bringing your vision to life and I pride myself on my ability to work with a diverse clientele. I enjoy building a relationship with my clients, and truly believe efficient communication is the key when it comes to executing your vision to perfection. Whether you want a clean and polished look for a special night out or a glamorous and timeless look for your wedding, I will make sure you love what you see in the mirror. The goal with every client is to enhance your features, while preserving your natural beauty. I strive to make each and every client feel comfortable, confident and beautiful. To make our communication more efficient when inquiring about Wedding Services, I have created the outline below. Once you have reviewed this, please don’t hesitate to ask me any specific questions. Also, please note, that my "Bridesmaid" pricing is the same as my general pricing for special event makeup (in case you're inquiring for an event that isn't a wedding). Bride Only Packages: These packages are priced out if it’s only the Bride who will be receiving hair and/or makeup services. “One in a Million” - This package includes a custom makeup application and hair styling created and catered for the bride-to-be + local travel (we can discuss your location in further detail and any applicable travel fees if you’re beyond the local radius). You will receive up to 3 hours of pampering, veil/jewelry placement and a touch up kit. Touch-ups will also be provided before I depart - $550. “The Tiffany Diamond” – This is the ultimate package for the bride who wants to be catered to like the Queen she is throughout her big day! This package includes a custom makeup application and hair styling created for the bride-to-be + local travel (we can discuss your location in further detail and any applicable travel fees if you’re beyond the local radius). You will receive up to 3 initial hours of pampering, veil/jewelry placement and a touch up kit. In addition, I will stay and provide on-location hair and make-up touch-ups and styling assistance. *A change of makeup and hair is also an option – this is suggested for Brides who have a traditional ceremony such as a Chinese Tea Ceremony, Indian Ceremony, or who are having an evening reception and want to elevate their look from day-time bridal to a more dramatic, night time look. There are two rates for this package, which are as follows: • $1,000 – This includes up to 3 hours for your initial makeup and hair look, and up to 3 additional hours which can be used for on-location touch-ups, and styling (i.e. during photography session, etc.), or for a makeup or hair change. • $1,200 - This includes up to 3 hours for your initial makeup and hair look, and up to 5 additional hours which can be used for on-location touch-ups, and styling (i.e. during photography session, etc.), or for a makeup and/or hair change. Bride + Bridal Party Packages (Bridesmaids, Mother of the Bride, Mother of the Groom, other family members, etc.) This pricing is if the bride is booking hair and/or makeup for herself + at least 4 additional services, for a total of 5 services. When inquiring, please provide the location/area of where you plan on getting ready so I can provide you with a quote. “Girls just wanna have fun!” - $1,500 - This package includes a custom makeup application and hair styling for the bride, plus makeup for 4 bridesmaids OR hair for 5 bridesmaids + local travel. The artist will remain on-location with the bridal party until the reception starts. She will be providing touch-ups for the entire bridal party as needed through their photography session, and after the ceremony. A touch-up kit will also be provided for all 5 women. *Additional persons receiving hair or makeup services will pay the bridesmaids rate and will also receive touch-ups. The following prices are for “Do-and-Go” bridal services. Once the stylist has completed all services contracted for, there will be 15 minutes designated for touch-ups. Upon completing touch-ups she will pack and depart. Touch-ups include lipstick/gloss and oil-blotting. Bride • Makeup: $250 Soft glam or full glam look • Hair: Starts at $150 and up depending on the desired hairstyle, length and thickness of hair Bridal Party • Makeup: $150 each if 5 or less, $135 if 6 or more. • Hair: Starts at $95 and up depending on the desired hairstyle, length and thickness of hair Bridal Trials A Bridal Trial is not required, but highly suggested. It allows us to meet each other, discuss your vision, analyze your skin and/or hair so we can achieve the look you want, and to give you a preview of your wedding day look. The travel fee is not included in this pricing. When inquiring, please provide the location/area of where you plan on getting ready so I can provide you with a quote. • Makeup: $175 • Hair: Starts at $150 and up depending on the desired hairstyle, length and thickness of hair.

I've been telling everyone that Vani was one of the angels who saved our wedding weekend! Not only was Vani gentle and kind with how she worked with me, my maid of honor, my mother, and my mother-in-law, she also created elegant designs for all our hair and makeup that suited our personalities and all our western style and Chinese style events! Vani was a very proactive communicator and set up a schedule prior to the day-of so that all the ladies knew when they could get some extra sleep and plan accordingly. And amidst a COVID-related wrench that was thrown into the mix the night before the wedding, Vani swooped in and gracefully tackled the challenge with no complaints and a great sense of humor! I highly recommend Vani and would love the opportunity to work with her again.

Details: Wedding • 65 or older • 45 - 64 years old • 26 - 44 years old • Standard (brushes, sponges, etc.) • Day-of or night-of touch ups • Pre-event makeup trial • 4 people • My home, venue, etc.

We contacted Vani for my daughter's prom for hair and makeup. Vani was very easy to communicate with and arrived when she said she would, we did a trial run a few days before prom as my kid never wears makeup and it went great and on the day she looked amazing. Vani gave her the look she wanted and we highly recommend her for all you special occasions. It took a lot of stress off us knowing that hair and makeup was taken care of and looked so professional and gave my kid the natural look she wanted!. Thank you Vani!

Details: Prom / formal • 1 person • Pre-event hair trial • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The pricing shown on my profile does not include a travel fee. I charge a travel fee beyond 20 miles roundtrip. Once I have your location, I can provide an accurate quote for services and travel fee if applicable.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When working with a new customer, I first talk with them to get a thorough idea of what services they are interested in, provide information, insight, suggestions and answer any questions. I then provide a quote for all requested services. Once the quote has been reviewed and accepted I prepare a contract, and send it to the client for review and approval. Once the contract has been signed and deposit paid, the appointment is confirmed.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Please understand that a well versed, professional artist knows what products work best on different skin types, tones and textures and what products work best with each other. Trust their judgement because they know what they're doing. Their portfolio is a reflection of their work. The best advice I can give regarding trusting the artist, is simply look at their portfolio and see if their style of work aligns with what you're looking for i.e. if you want a natural, skin focused look choose an artist who emphasizes this look in their clients.
