I will pay attention to all your details and will follow your inquiries. I’ll give you some recommendations on how to achieve your desire makeup look and what products are the best to use.

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

    I always want to be reasonable with pricing. I like to give some discounts for any person younger than 14 and/or older than 65. Lashes are always included with my price as long you like them and would want to use them. Travel expenses are also included with the price.

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

    I want my costumers to trust me so I want them to email me, text me or call me for any questions, same for a new costumer always send me pictures of looks you like and let me know anything you don't like so I will make sure I do a great job on you.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I went to makeup school in New York city and learned so much about not just makeup but skin routine and what are the best products for each type of skin. After getting my certificate and staring getting clients I got better and better so now I can understand perfectly what a client is looking for and help them achieve their desired look. I have also volunteered and fashion shows as a makeup artist so I also know what’s working under pressure and get a great makeup application.

Not what you’re looking for?
