- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I have a standard pricing system for all makeup services I provide. I charge solely for the makeup application and all of my appointments include complimentary false lashes. I do not charge additional costs for travel, late fees, etc. For parties of 2 or more people my prices per person do lower, and I always provide group discounts so the bigger your party, the lower cost per person. Please feel free to inquire about the discounts I offer!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Whenever working with a new customer, my typical process always starts with a consultation. By having this one-on-one question and answer with them, I can get to better know this customer. Hiring a makeup artist is an important decision and you need to feel comfortable, so I like to get to know my new customer by seeing why they're interested in hiring me in the first place? I ask about the event coming up; ask about their experience having their makeup done and always break down my pricing thoroughly. After our phone call, I always like to follow up with an email going over everything we've planned and discussed to ensure we have everything planned out and ready for our appointment. With any bridal or special event makeup application, I always insist on having a trial performed for the peace of mind of the client. If we create the perfect look for the day of, it takes a load of stress off the client knowing that the makeup is already decided for the day of. With my bridal trials I will always do a full evaluation of brides skin, and create a skincare routine and maintenance checklist for the months leading up to the wedding. We spend our time discussing the desired outcome and applying different makeup looks and lash styles until we've come up with the ideal makeup style for the day. Once we've decided on the perfect makeup I will create a face-chart of the look for myself to remember everything and for the bride to keep as well so we can ensure we have everything ready for the big day!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I worked as a pro artist with Mac cosmetics and went through each tier level of certifications and training with Mac. Furthermore, I am constantly working on sharpening my skills and partake in regular courses and mentorships to improve all aspects of my makeup artistry as well. I also like to stay up-to-date on the latest makeup trends and products in order to accommodate the wants and needs of anyone who sits in my chair.
