WHY SHOULD I HIRE A MAKEUP ARTIST?

The photographs from your wedding, prom, or another special event will showcase some of the most important days of your life. The makeup in those photos will live on forever, and as a professional makeup artist I have the knowledge and products to assure that your makeup will last all day with minimal touch ups required. I will work one on one with every client to make your vision a reality while suiting your skin type, skin tone, and specific concerns. Amanda Hope Makeup provides a luxury service, that will take away the stress of your beauty concerns for whatever your special occasion is.

WHAT IS THE BOOKING PROCESS?

To book with Amanda Hope Makeup, contact me through one of the methods provided on the contact page. I will check my availability, and discuss your event details with you. To make a booking and secure your date,  a completed contract and 50% deposit are required. The remaining 50% will be due on the day of your event. Bookings are made on a first come, first serve basis and will not be final until the deposit and contract are recieved

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I BOOK MY EVENT?

I suggest booking your event as soon as you have your date set. Bookings are on a first come, first serve basis and I would love to secure your date as soon as possible!

CAN I SCHEDULE A TRIAL BEFORE I COMMIT TO BOOKING?

Of course! I want every client to be comfortable with their decision. However, please keep in mind that your event date cannot be secured without a deposit and completed contract. If you are interested in Amanda Hope Makeup, I would love to hear from you!

DO I HAVE TO HAVE A TRIAL?

No, however I strongly encourage every client to have a trial. Completing a trial allows each client to know what to expect on the day of the event and for the process to go by more smoothly. During a trial, the client has more time to ask questions, and the artist to better understand their vision. Additionally, the client can then know after leaving the trial how the makeup wears on their skin and have time to be able to make changes for the day of the event. A trial puts both the makeup artist and client at ease for the day of the event.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY TRIAL?

For the day of your trial, I suggest that you come wearing a shirt the same color as what you will be wearing on the day of your event. Makeup can appear different against different colors so this will ensure that it will look the same on the day of your event. It is a good idea to book your trial in the morning, so you can test the longevity of your makeup and how it appears in different lighting. Having your trial makeup on longer can allow you to make sure it is the exact look you want, and any changes can be made for the day of the event. I also suggest bringing inspiration photographs of your ideal look so that there are no misunderstandings and I can better understand your vision!

DO YOU TRAVEL TO MY LOCATION? IS THERE A TRAVEL FEE?

Yes, Amanda Hope Makeup travels to you. As a luxury service, I believe you should not have to leave the comfort of your location! There is a travel fee for distances over 50 miles round trip from the zip code 03054. The fee is $0.50 for every mile over this distance, and this will be discussed and agreed upon before booking.

DO YOU DO HAIR?

Amanda Hope Makeup does not provide hair services. I specialize in makeup, and believe that each client should choose their artists based on their specialties. When a client does so the artists each can provide a personalized service and when their services come together it provides a flawless result customized to every client.

WHAT MAKEUP DO YOU CARRY IN YOUR KIT? DO YOU SELL MAKEUP?

I carry a variety of brands and products in my kit. Over 80% of my kit consists of high-end brands, and I believe that if you are paying for a luxury service you should be treated with luxury products. However, I also like to use the products that I feel work the best regardless of their price. If you have a certain product in mind that you would like used please contact me and I can let you know if it is in my kit. If not I most likely will have something similar by a different brand, and can discuss this option to be used on the day of your service. I do not sell any products, however I am always happy to make product recommendations and help you find where to purchase them!

 

DO YOU PROVIDE AIRBRUSH MAKEUP?

I do not provide airbrush makeup services, and I believe that with traditional makeup you can achieve the same if not a more flawless result than airbrush makeup. If you have further questions about this topic I would be happy to discuss them with you!

CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE MY SKIN CONCERNS AND SKIN TONE?

Part of my goal as a makeup artist is to be able to accomodate every client. I can provide a flawless look for the fairest of skin to the deepest, and contain products in my kit that allow me to perfect anyone's skin shade and undertone. Before I apply makeup to any client I will discuss their skin concerns and skin type, and prep the skin accordingly. This allows for a longer and more flawless wear time. I provide a one on one customized service for every client so any skin concern from dark undereye circles, enlarged pores, rosacia, vitiligo, fine lines, and acne can be adressed and treated how the client would like.

HOW LONG WOULD YOU BE WITH ME ON THE DAY OF MY EVENT?

This is completely dependent on each client's preferences! Each makeup application takes approximately one hour, and every client will be provided with a touch-up kit with their lip color as well as oil-blotting sheets, tissues, and other products tailored to the client's skin type. This puts each client at ease knowing that once I have left they can properly maintain their makeup look for the entire day. If a client is more comfortable with me staying past the time it takes to complete their makeup for touchups I can provide on-site touch-ups for an hourly fee of $25 an hour! This allows each client's makeup to be as flawless and fresh as possible while ensuring there is no stress throughout the day!
