Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Book

Why hire a professional makeup artist?

The number one reason why you should hire a professional makeup artist for your corporate photos is simple, it lets your clients see a refined and polished side of you. You're taking the time and money to invest in professional headshots, and there's nothing worse than looking at them months later and lacking confidence in your finished product. 

With over a decade of industry experience in makeup, Waring Makeup has the expertise to make sure you look your best in your corporate headshots. This means they can provide you with the right products to match your skin type, tone, and colours. This expertise also means they can highlight your best features and give you extra confidence during your photoshoot.

So take the easy, stress-free way of getting ready for your headshots and leave it all to your makeup artist.

I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup, will I have to for my corporate photos?

Not at all. When it comes to corporate makeup for your headshots, it should appear like you're wearing minimal makeup. Makeup is about enhancing your natural features to create a look that feels like you with just a bit of polish.

During your appointment will ask you questions to learn about your comfort level with makeup and your expectations. Our goal is to craft the perfect look to match those needs, nothing more, nothing less.

I have concerns about skin sensitivity. What should I do?

During your appointment, one of the first questions we have for our clients is if they have any skin sensitivities or allergies we should be aware of. It gives us the ability to work with you to figure out what will be the best products to use for your makeup session. Our ability to understand our client’s skin needs allows us to make sure you will feel and look your best.

Are you experienced with all skin tones?

Absolutely! Waring Makeup prides itself on working with a diverse range of clients and can accomplish the same high-quality work for every client no matter what skin tone they have. We have a complete kit of makeup suited to work with every skin tone and a foundation for every undertone. In addition, our portfolio page showcases a wide range of diversity without clients and should help alleviate any concerns you might have when booking your makeup artist.

I have scarring on my face, and I’m worried about texture. Are you able to cover up acne or scars?

Our goal is that your makeup artist should understand what concerns you have before your application starts so we can make you feel your best. Waring Makeup strives to make sure its clients feel comfortable sharing those concerns with us and being transparent on the best way to achieve the right look for you. Our skin preparation treatments will help the makeup apply smoothly and create a lasting look, while the products we use should help cover any scars or discolourations.

Do you offer tattoo cover-ups? If so, how long does it take?

Tattoo cover-ups are one of the many services we offer for our clients. The time it will add to your appointment can vary due to the tattoo’s size, colour, location, and potential scarring. It will also cause the price of the tattoo cover-up to vary. Before booking, inquire about any possible tattoos you would like to cover up. This service requires a description of the tattoo, its location, and a photo of it ahead of your appointment.

Are you able to travel to my location?

Yes! Waring Makeup artists can travel to whatever location is easiest for clients to have their makeup done. Areas could include your home,  office, photography studio, or alternative venues where the photoshoot is happening. Applicable travel fees will be applied to your quote based on the distance required to travel.

Before Your Appointment

Should I come wearing my own makeup to my appointment?

It's dependent on which service you are booking.

For clients looking for just touch-up services, please arrive wearing the makeup you intend on having for your photos. Will provide powdering, colour adjustments, and fixing flyaways.

For clients who are booking makeup services, we strongly recommend that our clients have a clean bare face before their makeup session. It allows your artist to apply the skin preparation properly and create the perfect flawless look for you. Removing existing makeup prior to applying new makeup means your skin will be agitated and cause difficulties with the application.

What do I need to do before my makeup session?

The night before your appointment, it’s essential to exfoliate your skin to help improve the skin preparation treatment, which will assist in making your makeup flow smoothly and evenly.

On the day of your appointment, just come as you are, clean bare face, no makeup required! If you're booking touch-up services then arrive with your makeup on.

What should I expect on the morning of the appointment?

Your makeup artist will arrive at the agreed location 15 minutes before your first scheduled application begins. This allows your artist to make sure they can set up their supplies and have proper lighting for your sessions. Ensure you have a clean designated area ready for your artist when they arrive and comfortable seating.

How long should I expect my makeup to take?

Typical corporate makeup applications will take 20 to 30 minutes for natural-looking makeup.

For corporate glam applications, they will take 45 to 60 minutes. 

Corporate touch-ups will range from 10 to 15 minutes.

Therefore, it’s essential to coordinate with your team a schedule that everyone can agree on to make sure no one’s makeup application runs late or needs to be shortened.

What makeup look would you suggest for me?

Every client has different expectations of which look will best represent them. This is why we look to discuss with our clients ahead of their appointment what their expectations are. This way, your artist will understand the direction you want to go for your desired look. You can rest assured that with over a decade of industry experience Waring Makeup can help guide you to feel confident about deciding on which look will be best for you.

How can you make my makeup last and look good in photos?

The secret to lasting makeup starts with proper skin care and preparation before the makeup is applied. All our makeup services come with skin preparation or our premium skin preparation package to ensure your skin is ready to support a makeup application. Next is making sure studio-quality products are used that have a track record of longevity for wear, as well as avoiding any flashback mishaps during your photoshoot. Finally, using a setting spray or finishing powder will help lock in your perfect look.

If you’re nervous about looking perfect for your headshots, on-site touch-up services can be available upon request.

What brands of makeup products do you use?

While I have a wide range of products in my makeup kit, my preferred choice for studio makeup is MAC Cosmetics as they have perfected their studio product line.
