Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve never had my makeup done professionally before, what’s the process?

Feeling a bit unsure about getting your makeup done by a pro? Let's walk through what you can expect with a professional Barrhaven makeup artist. 

First things first, you won’t need to wear any makeup when we meet. It’s like giving an artist a clean canvas to work on. This way, I can prep your skin perfectly and make sure your makeup looks flawless and fresh.

In the days leading up to your appointment, it’s super helpful if you could show me some photos or ideas of the look you’re dreaming of. This helps me tailor everything to suit you just right.You can always have a peek at my portfolio if you need some ideas or inspo photos.

If you can, gently exfoliate your skin the night before to help the makeup go on super smooth.

Then, on the big day, whether it’s your wedding or another special occasion, I’ll pop by your chosen spot early to set up my gear.

All you need to do is have a comfy seat and a little space ready for us to get creative. Together, we'll make sure you look and feel amazing!

What if I don’t wear a lot of makeup?

Is wearing makeup not really your thing? That's totally okay! My job is to make you feel fantastic, not different. 

If you usually go makeup-free or just like a dab here and there, I’ve got you covered. Here at Waring Makeup, I believe in a little goes a long way. I focus on bringing out your best features with just the right amount of makeup to make you glow without the overwhelm.

I get that the makeup chair might be new territory for you, so I’ll take it slow, explaining as we go, and I'll use a light touch.

You’ll be amazed at how just a bit of makeup can brighten your look while still looking like the you, you know. Let me highlight your natural beauty and help you step out feeling confident and true to yourself!

If you're worried about how your skin might react to makeup, I've got you covered.

Right from the get-go, when you fill out my booking form for any of my mobile makeup artist services, there's a spot for you to tell me all about your skin's likes, dislikes, allergies, and sensitivities.

Before your big day or special event, I’ll chat with you about the best makeup options and any steps we can take to keep your skin happy and looking amazing.

It’s all about making sure you not only look fabulous but also feel fantastic. Your comfort and confidence are my top priorities!

Just keep in mind, depending on how far I need to travel, there will be a little travel fee added to your quote.

If you're up for a short trip over to Riverside South, my lovely home studio is ready for your appointment — no travel fee needed!

Just a heads-up, I share my studio with three super fluffy cats, so let me know if you have any allergies.

First step: jump onto our booking form. It's quick, I promise. The form asks a few things about what makeup services you need. These questions are super important because they help me tailor everything just for you, aiming for that perfect look you’re dreaming of.

Once you've filled it out, you’ll hear from me within 24 to 48 hours. I’ll send an email to confirm your details and provide an invoice for a deposit to lock in your appointment. And remember, I'm always here if you want to talk more about your look, have any questions, or prefer to discuss things over a phone call.

Two days before your session, I’ll reach out to double-check we’re all set and remind you to complete your payment. This check-in can be through email, text, or a call — whatever you like best. Just a heads up, all payments need to be settled 48 hours before our appointment.
