Preparing for Your Appointment


Come Prepared

Bring photos of makeup looks you like and/or a photo of your outfit. This will give me an idea of where to take your makeup look (with your input, of course).

Button Up

It’s best to wear either a button-up or wide-neck shirt to your appointment so you don’t smudge your makeup (or pull your hair) when you change your clothes later.

Fresh Faced

Please come with a clean face to your appointment to save time (moisturizer is recommended). However, if you do come with any makeup on I will remove it prior to the makeup application.

To Wax or Not to Wax

Waxing can irritate your skin so please have any facial waxing completed at least 48 hours prior to your appointment.

Plan Ahead

The month prior to your makeup application is a great time to start a proper skincare routine (if you don’t already have one). Be sure to:

  • Wash and moisturize your face morning and night
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day
  • Avoid going to bed or working out with makeup on
  • Get a facial or try an at-home face mask (avoid the week of your appointment)
  • Get at a full nights sleep the night before your appointment
Be Realistic

Makeup can do wonders, but it is not cosmetic surgery. My job is to enhance your natural beauty and make you feel confident in your own skin but some areas like wrinkles or severe scarring, can only be minimized.



Wash and blow-dry your hair the night before your appointment. Please do not use any styling products and do not curl or straighten your hair unless previously discussed with myself. If you have very fine hair you can wash and blow-dry the morning of your appointment.

“Dye” Ahead

Visit your hair salon at least 1-2 washes prior to your appointment to allow any excess hair dye to rinse out.

Adding Length

Please let me know in advance if you will be bringing hair extensions to use in your hairstyle as more time will be required to complete your look.


Bring any hair accessories you want used in your hairstyle to your appointment (including trails). I’m happy to put them in for you!

Again, having photos of some preferred hairstyles as well as coming in either a button-up or zip-up shirt is helpful!
