Whether you tweeze, thread or wax, be sure to do so 3-5 days before your session. Please do not do this the day of or before your session. Those few days will allow redness to dissipate and skin texture around the brows to become more even. If you do not maintain your brows, we highly suggest you do so to make the most of your facial frame. If you need recommendations on experienced and clean professionals, let us know.
Your artist will ask you about your occasion, your outfit, your hair plans, event location and time of day you will be there. Yes - every detail matters. All factors are considered in giving you the absolute best results possible. Feel free to bring any clothing, accessories, inspirational photos or other items that will be part of your vision so we can work together to create the perfect look for you.
Being late for your appointment can result in a late fee and affect your final look. Great makeup isn’t rushed so please make sure you are on time and ready to begin your consultation and application. If you are more than 15 minutes late you could risk losing your deposit and having to reschedule. Be sure to keep your artist aware of any expected tardiness so adjustments can be made if possible.
Your session requires your undivided attention as well as your artist’s. It can be time consuming, difficult (and sometimes unsafe) to work on your skin and eye area if you are distracted by electronic devices or your little ones. We respectfully ask that you make proper arrangements for the care of small children and refrain from using phones or any other devices so as not to delay or compromise the quality of your session.
Your ideal artist should not only be an expert in the style you’re looking for but also be a great listener. As professionals we will to listen to your thoughts and give you valuable advice on what may / may not be ideal for your situation. We will account for everything from your wardrobe to the lighting. Bring an open mind, feel free to ask questions and please be prepared to depend on your artist’s experience.
From scheduling to your final viewing, your artist will rely on your being honest and clear in your expectations. Artists have many skills but they can only work with the information they have. Your role in this relationship is crucial. We urge clients to feel comfortable knowing that transparency is respected and welcomed and that you won’t hurt any feelings. Kindness and tact are always appreciated but voicing concerns at relevant times is essential.
We love seeing inspirational photos but we must tell you that they are often overly edited and filtered far beyond reality. We must also tell you that makeup for events / photographs initially appears heavier than normal so that beauty editing can take place. This may be uncomfortable at first to those who usually wear little/no makeup. Also, when choosing images, choose a model who has similar features and know that what works on some may not be ideal for you. You can also check our galleries for ideas.
On your session day please come with a clean and well moisturized face and lips. If the artist is required to remove leftover makeup prior to your session, it will delay the schedule and you may incur a fee. You’ll also want to wear comfortable clothing for your 40-60 minute styling time. If your hair is being styled, a button down shirt is perfect so as not to damage your tresses when you change into your final wardrobe.
