Being a makeup artist in the wedding industry is not all about the makeup. Sounds strange but it’s true. A large amount of my time is taken up with dealing with enquiries, invoicing, blogging, advertising, organising photoshoots and shouting to the world what I do on a daily basis. So I thoroughly believe communication is key to my job.
I always try to put myself in my clients shoes and to reply to them in a good amount of time – who doesn’t want to know if a wedding supplier is free or not for their wedding instantly? I also welcome feedback from my clients on how easy the booking process was, or how much they liked the makeup trial/wedding day makeup. All these little things help to make me not just a better makeup artist but also (I think) a better business woman.
Next year I am going to be working on a new price structure to introduce hair into the mix. Giving my clients more options when it comes to booking a fuller package.
So watch this space! x
