- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing is determined by the occasion or event, the number of people who require makeup, any add-ons, and the travel distance.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Once I receive the deposit for the makeup appointment, I will send my address to my studio if the client books (in-studio appointment), and you will also receive a schedule confirmation your email or phone. After booking the client can call me or I will call them to discuss the desired makeup look. The client can send me photos or inspiration on how they want their makeup to look. On the day of service the remaining balance is due and can be paid in cash or credit. When working with a new client I do a number of things. I first access the client's skin by observing skin tone (color), skin type (i.e oily, dry, normal), and sensitivity (contact wearer, skin conditions-roseca/ezema). From doing this I know what type of makeup application I need to apply such. I also ask what the client needs makeup for (event, casual outing, etc) and how long they plan to have the makeup on which helps me determines the how apply the makeup. Next I like to ask the client what type of look they are going for such as natural, glam, dramatic etc. Throughout the process of the makeup application I answer any questions or concerns my client may have and reassure them that I will create a custom look that will flatter and make my them look and feel their best (celebrity status)
