So lets dive right on in...
1. The client believes that requesting a 'mini face' will drastically reduce the rate of a full face.
2. That its an indirect way of asking for a discount.
3. That the client doesn't see the true value in a professional makeup artist.
4. The client doesn't wear much makeup on a day to day basis.
What I would like potential clients and readers to know is that, "a little blush, a little eyeshadow and a little lipstick" is in fact a full face. Saying that you want a 'little' bit of everything wont make the application process any cheaper or easier. In fact I find it to be a lot harder to apply with a lighter hand. Therefore asking for a 'mini face' should cost more? Nah? (lol remember I'm being silly here...while I hit you with the truth.)
Its like asking why Bridesmaid dresses are cheaper than the Bridal gown! More time and care goes into the bridal gown to ensure she looks better than everyone, including her bridesmaids, her husbands ex...everybody! Beading, lacing, layering, expensive fabrics, etc. Makeup Artists take more time on the bride, they use their "good brush set" on the bride, etc. Might I add that as a professional makeup artist I've served as many other things. A bouncer, a planner, a messenger, a coordinator, a friend when all of her bridesmaids are tripping about everything and fail to realize that its not their day, etc. I've had to put one too many bridesmaids and mothers in place. Every single time it has happened the bride appreciated it. Note: I've only done this when things truly got out of hand. I would never insert myself in a situation for no reason. I don't allow people to stress my bride out! Is this included in the fee? No....I'm just saying that makeup artist do more then you'll ever know. We are with you in that final moment, we see and wipe tears away. If the artist is amazing and kind, just pay the rate...OK?! You saw their work and reached out to them for a reason. Mua's share this post and use the hashtag #PAYTHERATE...LOL
