Makeup by Mandi
About this pro
We are a young and vibrant company. All of our stylists are amazing and passionate about what they do. We constantly educate ourselves on the latest trends and we strive to make sure when we leave our clients have a smile on their face. I would say we have two main "favorite" parts of our job. The first is meeting so many wonderful people and seeing the power of spending a little time to make them feel great. I would say our other favorite part is doing portfolio shoots. They allow us to be creative and do whatever we want, not just copy someone else's vision.

- What types of customers have you worked with?We get a lot of weddings and proms. We also have been getting a lot of requests for fashion shows and high fashion shoots.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?More expensive is not always better. Some of the best makeup and hair styles I have ever gotten were from some of the least expensive providers. That being said, any professional has the knowledge that say a "friend who is really good at makeup" may not. Events such as weddings or proms where there are a lot of photographs taken require special techniques that the average person may not know, so I would always advise clients to use a professional.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?I wish more people understood the investment that goes into being a hair or makeup artist. Financially it is huge. A basic makeup kit easily costs $1,000, a great brush set add another thousand. A good artist easily has $5,000 invested into product alone. It also takes a lot of time and practice to master what we do.
