Makeup Fees for modeling portfolios are as follows:

Please Note:  All services are subject to a $20.00 kit fee per day.  The kit fee is to replenish disposable products such as: mascara wands, lip brushes, eyeshadow applicators, cleansing wipes, paper towels, false eyelashes, etc.

One look for $50.00 which is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.  (Which may include a simple hair do – subject to the needs of the photographer – which may take an additional 15 minutes totaling 1 hour)

Two looks for $80.00 – an additional half hour for the second look

Three looks for $100.00 – an additional half hour for the third look

Clients requesting a natural/basic/daytime look for training videos / model shoots etc. - the charge will be $60.00 an hour.  At least a half hour is required for each model.

If you are interested in TFP, there will be a $20.00 kit fee.  I will be available for 3 to 4 hours with a maximum of 2 looks for that timeframe. 

Models: 

  1. Please come to the shoot without ANY makeup on!  If you insist on putting foundation on before you arrive, please be sure that it matches your skin tone, neck and chest color – otherwise I will remove it before beginning makeup and that will consume more time from the photographer.
  2. Have your eyebrows tweezed and shaped and the hair above your lip removed/tweezed before arrival.  If you do not,  and the photographer wishes your eyebrows to be trim, there will be an extra charge of $5.00 to you, provided the photographer can allot 15 extra minutes for me to do this.
  3. Wash and dry your hair!!  It is easier for hair to be done/curled and look good in a photo if it does not contain alot of natural/shiny oils in it.
  4. You will be signing an allergic release form when you arrive.  If there are any makeup or skincare products/ingredients that you are allergic to, please let me know.

Photographers: 

  1. Please have the model arrive at least one hour from the start of the shoot.   This will allow adequate time for makeup application, hairdo if needed and alterations if requested – as well as some time for wardrobe selection.
  2. If the model is late,  I still require 45 mins to an hour.  Note that makeup application may not take this long, but it is to provide us with unforseen circumstances such as; tweezing, hairdo, wardrobe selection, makeup removal if model arrives with the inappropriate foundation color on and possibly covering up broken out or blotchy skin.  I will not rush through a makeup application.   When I have long pointy brushes around a model’s face and eyes, I cannot be rushed and risk injury to them.  The last thing I want is to be credited for makeup application that was halfway done.   I either do it great or not at all.
