What happens during a Photoshoot Makeup Application?
Your artist will arrive at the photography location on time and ready to help you achieve stunning images. We start with a quick consultation to find out your desired makeup look, any skin concerns, and your attire choices. For shoots, we use HD makeup that photographs beautifully. Once your makeup is complete, the photographer will do a light test to see how the makeup photographs. We stay on set with you while you are shooting to switch, adjust, and maintain your makeup so you don't have to(we also are great for taking behind-the-scenes photos and videos).
What happens during a special event makeup application?

If you are comfortable, we take your picture to test how the makeup photographs. Lastly, we ask you to let us know if you would like any changes made to your makeup before we go.
