I expect my artists to be early for your client and set up 20 minutes early for every job. Setting up 20 minutes early for every job is really, really important. Because you know,

as they say in the industry, if you're on time -you're LATE. I also expect all of my stylists to 

be impeccably dressed, have nails done, have clean hair, and nice natural makeup on, have super clean kits, and be well organized. This conveys the utmost professionalism to the clients. 

Also, I know this is really hard to do when you work in different

locations all the time, but I can't stress this enough, set up your

workspace to create a really luxurious experience. I know

sometimes we're stuck off in a corner, but in those times that

you're working in a great hotel or a nice home, really make the space inviting. The 

client will say, "Oh my gosh, look at this beautiful setup we have here!" It creates this special feeling that they're getting a true luxury

experience. Bringing a light, a chair and your sparkling clean kit will go  a long way to convey that feeling! It really creates this great luxury experience. And mostly,

when the client sits down, they're like, “Whoa, you are no joke.”

So they'll be telling their friends, “Oh my gosh, I had this makeup

 artist who showed up, and she was so good. She had her kit all laid out beautifully! And she had her lights and she had her table, she had her chair she had everything.” So bringing your own lighting really tells the client, “Hey, I'm a professional. I'm not just going to be over here

in the dark working blindly.” Bringing your own lighting is a

really nice luxury touch, not to mention, helps you color match

your foundation correctly.


Skin prep is extremely important. If you're not incorporating this into your makeup application you will not get the best results. I will hold a skin prep class for those artists who need to elevate this skill. 


Properly prepping the hair for many styles is also extremely important. You need more than a curling iron and a can of hairspray. I am also very insistent on ensuring your bobby pins are not visible when creating up and half up styles.


I also want to clarify that when you're working as a bridal

artist, you need to use top quality products that perform. I

don't want to see a kit full of drugstore makeup because here's

the thing. I mean, I know it's the hand, it's not the brand sometimes but it's all about perception and positioning. If your

bride is paying a premium price, and she sits down and your

makeup kit is full of drugstore brands, she's gonna question what she's actually paying for. Now, I'm not saying that you

have to use all high-end designer brands but most of your kit should be high-end, luxury or professional brands. 



Make sure you choose a fairly uncluttered spot in the background and use your video light to catch the beautiful glow! I would also love to see some videos and even some time-lapse.
