Weddings, Proms, and Special Events
Q: I can just go to the make-up counter and get my make-up done. Why go to you instead?
A: It's true. You definitely can just go to the closest make-up counter and get your make-up done. But, you are in a high pressure sales environment and may be heavily persuaded to purchase something you normally wouldn't get. Also, they only have a short amount of time with you, so sometimes it can feel like their rushing to complete your make-up. Instead of it being a fun time, you feel stressed out. When you go to me, you'll never feel rushed. I like to make you feel calm and comfortable. We're on your time table.
Secondly, I'm nice! :D What do I mean? Have you ever felt like when you go to the Make-up counter or store that it takes forever for someone to help you or the sales associate just ignores you? It makes you feel awful and unimportant. When you're in my chair, it's all about you! You are important to me and I want you to feel comfortable.
Third, although they claim they sanitize their lipsticks by swiping the top layer with an alcohol wipe, how sanitary is that? I don't double dip into my lipsticks. I don't use the same mascara wand from the tube to apply on your lashes. I make sure I don't cross-contaminate so that you don't get someone else's germs.
You have the option of me traveling to your location of choice for your special day. How convenient is that?! You can stay at the comfort of your home or hotel and not have to worry about traveling anywhere to get your makeup done. Less stress for you! You tell me when and where, and I show up with my make-up kit and chair and get to work on you.
Q: Why do you charge so much? Why is everyone charged the same price?
A: To be honest, my fee is in the middle in comparison to other make-up artists in Southern California. My price includes years of experience and ongoing learning. I have years of experience where I've learned what works best for each skin type and skintone. I know what works best on your wedding day to ensure that your make-up will last all day and night. I have learned the best ways to cover up acne and scarring without it looking cakey and overdone.
I am always going to make-up seminars and classes to learn the newest trends and different techniques from other make-up artists. Although I am self-taught, I did attend Cinema Makeup School and completed their Master's Program which covered the whole make-up spectrum, from beauty to fashion to special effects.
I charge one price for everyone because I spend the same amount of time on each client. I use the same set of skills on every person who sits in my chair. You may be a bridesmaid but you are important too! I only spend a little more time on my brides because they are the star of the show! I do offer special discounts for parties of 4 or more.
