*Bridal clients must book at least four weeks in advance to receive their included consultation session.

Payment is due at the time of the scheduled appointment. Accepts ApplePay, cash, or check (no Venmo, please). Tips are greatly appreciated. Clients for all occasions must provide at least 24-hours notice for cancellation. Payment is due otherwise. Travel exceeding 25 miles distance merits an extra $15.00 gas fee. Gas fee also applies for travel to bridal consultation sessions. Every client is advised to provide their own best-matched liquid or powder foundation for use. Because it’s difficult for one makeup artist to have a whole range of shades on hand, it’s best if the client has their own. Consulting a professional makeup artist for your foundation match is a must!
Tips for Clients:
Know thyself, but trust the makeup artist, too. Love smokey eyes? Looking for a less-than-subtle lip? Knock yourself out! Make your requests known and provide images for examples. However, understand that a makeup artist may encourage you toward a different direction, but it is only with the intent of meeting or increasing your satisfaction. If you still prefer something different, that’s okay! The point is to communicate and be open.
Have your foundation professionally matched to your skin tone. Having a high-quality foundation that matches your skin tone is ideal for the artist traveling to you, and it’s a worthy investment for your own makeup arsenal. Head to Sephora, Ulta, or a reputable department store to receive professional help, and don’t hesitate to try samples first. I recommend Lancome Teint Idole, MakeUpForEver Ultra HD Foundation, and all of BareMinerals’ face makeup products.
Don’t base makeup expectations on celebrity photos. While they can be excellent sources of inspiration, social media posts always involve filters, FaceTune, and other kinds of editing. Additionally, celebs pay thousands of dollars every year for top-of-the-line skin care routines and procedures that most of us can’t afford. Don’t set Kendall, Gigi, Bella, Rihanna, or anyone other than yourself as the standard for what you should look like. Your own face is the standard.
