FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I book for makeup services?
Thank you for considering me as your makeup artist for your event! Please fill out the event inquiry form located in my contact tab. After further discussion, an Agreement will be sent to you. I require a retainer fee due within 24 hours of Agreement signing. The retainer fee goes toward the final balance. Please note: Your event date is not booked/secure until I receive the signed Agreement and the requested retainer.
Can you hold my event date for me while I think about it?
Unfortunately, I cannot hold your event date, especially if it is on a weekend. Events are booked on a first come, first serve basis.
What is included in your rate?
All of my makeup services include a false lash application, custom lip color, and a touch up kit for you to maintain your look throughout the day.
All my rates are firm. After submitting your inquiry, I will form a quote for you depending on what you are requesting from me for your event.
Any additional questions not listed here?
Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any other questions you may have regarding special event services. Please note: I cannot answer any specifics regarding your event unless I have an event inquiry from you. Follow my Instagram @beautybylouks to keep up with me! Most updates will be posted there.
What is a special event?
Any event that isn't a wedding is what I consider a special event. Proms, parties, engagement shoots, bridal showers, baby showers, family portraits, wedding guests, etc.. All events are special!
What is your retainer fee for events?
I require a $50 per person/service retainer fee to secure an event date (starting February 2023). Retainer fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.
How long do your makeup services take?
I typically allot 60 minutes per person for event makeup. Depending on the look you are interested in having, timing may vary. When discussing your inquiry, I will let you know an appropriate schedule to start services so that you may be ready on time.
How far in advance should I inquire/book makeup services?
I recommend inquiring for your event as early as possible. The closer to your event date, the more difficult it may be to find available artists.
Do you travel?
I do travel! All my work is done on location. As I am based in the Bay Area, travel fees are dependent on the distance I must drive/fly to your location. Any questions on travel and travel fees may be discussed as we review your initial inquiry.
