FAQ’S

Do you work with the LGBTQ+ community?

Why should I hire a makeup artist?

I provide a luxury service that will take away the stress of getting ready for any special occasion. The photographs on days such as your wedding, prom, or other special events showcase some of the most important days of your life! Your makeup in these photos will live on forever, and as a professional makeup artist I have the knowledge, experience, and tools to not only make your vision come to life but also to have it last through the night. Whether you want to go full glam or keep the look natural I know which products will work best with your skin, suggestions for the overall colors or look, and what photographs well. You will have one less thing to do yourself as you get pampered and won’t have to worry how it will turn out or if everyone will be ready on time!

What does your booking process look like?

To book, first contact me through one of the contact methods listed HERE. I will check my availability, and discuss your event details with you. To book I require a 50% non-refundable deposit and a completed contract. Until these are both received dates are not held or secured with me. 

How far in advance should I book? Do you offer soft holds?

Is there a minimum or maximum for booking? Will you have a second artist with you?

I don’t require any minimums for bookings, and as long as time allows I do not have any maximums. I go based off of start times and finish times for how many people I can fit in. I don’t have a second artist as I am an independent freelancer, but I can bring an assistant with me to help sanitize, organize, and do any touch ups to cut down the time each person takes in my chair. 

Can I schedule a trial before I commit to booking?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am However, please keep in mind dates are not held until they are officially booked, with a contract and deposit. Therefore, simply booking your trial does not guarantee your wedding date. If another client wishes to move forward with booking before your scheduled trial, you will receive 24 hours notice via email. This way you will be able to decide if you wish to book without a trial prior, or release the date.

What happens if someone wants their makeup done who wasn’t already booked?

Why should I have a trial? Can my other family members also have a trial?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am If your mother or bridesmaids would like a trial run as well, we can do it at the same appointment or schedule it when it is convenient to them at the same rate.

Do you provide airbrush services?

Do you do hair?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am Please reach out to me and I can help with any vendor recommendations!

Do you provide partial services such as just eyes or just face?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am I will not provide any partial services such as just eyes or just face. Having just part of a makeup application done by me does not properly reflect my work or allow for a cohesive look. 

What makeup do you carry in your kit? Do you sell makeup?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am We don’t believe that one single brand excels at everything

Can I bring my own makeup? What about lashes?

For the protection of each client and for myself I will not use any client’s personal cosmetics or tools. This allows me to ensure the cleanliness and safety of all products while eliminating cross contamination, as well as to ensure the longevity of the makeup and how it will photograph.  If you would like to have your own lashes applied, you are more than welcome to bring them for me to apply if they are new and in box. No discounts will apply.

Can you accommodate my skin type / tone / concerns? What experience do you have?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am I always used to struggle with finding a foundation shade pale enough for me or to find an artist I trusted with my sensitive skin and could match my skin tone. I knew going into makeup artistry from the beginning I wanted to be the artist that anyone could trust to know that I could match and flatter any skin tone from the palest to the deepest. No one should have to worry when getting their makeup done that the artist has the proper products or application techniques for them. I have a full range of professional skin care and cosmetic products that I can use for mature, sensitive, or acne-prone skin before and during makeup application to achieve the very best results. 

How can I prepare for my appointment?

What are your sanitation precautions?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am All cosmetics are sprayed with makeup sanitizing spray and/or 70% alcohol. Brushes are deep cleaned between every client and disposables are always used when applicable such as mascara and lip gloss. Creams are always scooped out onto a palette and all packaging is wiped down with disinfecting wipes between clients. Between households all parts of my kit including the products and tools inside are fully re-disinfected including the bags and outer kit. Masks will be worn by myself for the forseeeable future.  

When you come to me what does your set up look like? What do you need from me?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am

How long does the makeup last? How long does each application take?

Sept. 23, 2023 at 11am

WHat payment methods do you accept? Is pricing negotiable?

For payment I accept cash, checks, cards, PayPal, and Venmo. All checks should be made out to “Amanda Lacefield”. 

Do you travel? Is there a travel fee?
