Securing Services

The booking of the event is only reserved once the client has paid a non-refundable deposit to the Makeup Artist. The deposit is £50 – this is required to secure the event. The event will not be secured until the initial deposit is paid. Arranging a trial does not reserve the Makeup Artist’s services for the event. Events on any Friday, Saturday or Sunday are subject to a £250 per day minimum spend, excluding travel costs. Travel costs are paid per artist on the booking. Trials must be paid for at the scheduled trial date in cash or bank transfer 7 days before, made payable to your artist. The client can cancel a trial at any point, however a trial cancelled with less than 48 hours notice will be charged for at the agreed rate.

Payment

Payments can be made by card or via bank transfer, cheques will not be accepted.  The non-refundable deposit of £50 paid by the client is taken off the final balance.
The final balance is to be paid in full by the client seven days (7) before the event. Failure to pay the fee within the stated time will result in the event being cancelled by the Makeup Artist, unless previously agreed with your artist.

Responsibility of the client

The client shall inform the makeup artist of any issues that may affect the use of any equipment or products. This includes but is not limited to sensitivities, allergies and medical conditions. The makeup artist cannot be held liable for any losses or damage that is incurred due to the client’s failure to inform the artist of any known condition
The makeup artist reserves the right to refuse service to the client or members the party for, but not limited to, abusive and threatening behaviour.

Cancellations

At any point the client can cancel the event by informing the Makeup Artist and your artist in writing.
The Makeup Artist will be under no obligation to refund any money paid up until point of cancellation.
Wedding day bookings cancelled within six weeks of the date will incur the following cancellation fee:
8 weeks notice: 50% of the outstanding balance as agreed at the trial run.
6 to 8 weeks notice: 75% of the outstanding balance as agreed at the trial run.
less than 6 weeks notice: 100% of the outstanding balance as agreed at the trial run.

The client can cancel a trial at any point, however a trial cancelled with less than 48 hours notice will be charged for at the agreed rate. Cancellations by the Makeup Artist due to circumstances including, but not limited to, problems rendering the performance of their obligations and where no other suitable alternative can be given will result in a refund to the client. No further compensation will be offered.

If the booking is directly affected by circumstances beyond the control of the makeup artist, every possible endeavour to rectify such situations will be made, however no compensation will be offered on the makeup artist’s part. The client is strongly advised to take out wedding insurance to cover against such situations.

Exclusivity

Exclusivity is not guaranteed for the whole day of the event, therefore timings will be seriously considered when agreeing to any booking. It is unlikely that there will be another event on the day; and any second event undertaken by the makeup artist will not affect the first event. An exclusivity fee can be arranged if preferred.

Photography

The client agrees that the Makeup Artist may use any photography for publicity purposes which include but are not limited to the Makeup Artist’s website and social media pages.

Travel Expenses

The client will cover any necessary travel expenses of the makeup artist as agreed at time of booking. This is to include, should it be required, congestion charging and parking charges. For destination weddings airport transfers both in the UK and abroad, flights and accommodation with breakfast should all be provided.
