Q: I found someone cheaper, isn't it all the same make-up anyway? Aren't all make-up artists the same?
A: Yes, you can definitely find someone cheaper, but you know the saying: You get what you pay for.
Most of the "cheaper" make-up artists out there use cheap make-up brands. I'm not knocking down drugstore brands because you can find some really good products for cheap, BUT, I invest and use high-end make-up brands, and most are brands only professional make-up artists know of or use. These pro brands are better quality and longer lasting.
No, not all make-up artists are the same. Each individual artist has their own style. I am light-handed and I gravitate towards the more natural makeup. I can definitely do dramatic and glam make-up but I'm not a big fan of the over-contoured face. Don't get me wrong, I think the outcome is perfection but in my opinion, it's too much makeup and unnecessary. Make-up is supposed to enhance but to each her own.
I listen to what you envision and make it come to life. I may have some suggestions on what will better work for you, but I never go beyond what you're comfortable with. I've had many clients come to me because they didn't like their previous make-up trial or application. They've told me that the make-up artist didn't listen to what they wanted and either used too much make-up or applied colors the client hated. They ended up going home and taking off the make-up they've already paid for and reapplying their own make-up for their event. I talk you through the whole process and always ask for your preferences. I want you to be happy.
And lastly, I do contracts. Contracts? Yes, contracts. This is my way of promising that I will be there on our agreed time and date. Most non-professional makeup artists won't have this option for you, so you won't know if they'll even show up.
Q: What services do you offer?
A: I am a make-up artist. Although I will occasionally do hair for photo shoots, I refer my bridal clients to hairstylists I work with. I want to focus and spend all my energy on the bride/client's make-up. I don't want to rush my process.
My make-up service includes full-face application (color correction, foundation and eye makeup) with false lashes and the option of airbrush foundation.
