How do you take payments for services?
After your appointment is booked, you will be asked to pay a 50% deposit. The remaining balance is due on the day of your appointment.
Which payment providers do you accept?
We accept Chase Quickpay, Venmo, Cash App, or any major debit or credit card.
When should I book my makeup appointment?
Most of our clients book 2-3 weeks ahead for special event makeup.
What happens during a makeup application?
First, we ask questions to find out your makeup wants and any skin concerns. This allows you to create a custom makeup look with your artist that you love. We use sanitized makeup brushes and disposable sponges/wands to complete your makeup. Then, we take your picture to test how the makeup photographs. Lastly, we ask every client to let us know if they would like any changes made to their makeup before we go. Once you are happy, the remaining payment is collected.
What makeup brands are in your makeup kit?
Our makeup kit is stocked with high-quality brands that photograph beautifully. Some of our favorites include Danessa Myricks, Makeup Forever, NARS cosmetics, Tatcha Skincare, MAC cosmetics, Laura Mercier, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Fenty Cosmetics, Armani Beauty, Dior Cosmetics, and many others.
How long will it take to complete my makeup?
We typically take one hour to complete makeup and leave 30 minutes for touchups and any changes needed.
