If you are running late please let the makeup artist know as soon as possible. Katie Saarikko will arrive 10 minutes early to set up the work station. While we are understanding, often the makeup artist is booked back to back and lateness means they will arrive late to their next appointments which is not fair for their other clients.

For this reason a late fee of $40 per hour will be applied and invoiced after the event if the makeup artist is required to stay after the allocated time for the appointment. There is also the chance that the makeup artist will not be able to perform your makeup service if you are running late and the makeup artist has more appointments after you. Your retainer will not be refunded and the full fee will be invoiced.

If you need to cancel or re-schedule please keep in mind that the artist has said no to other paid work in order to retain your booking. The retainer fee will not be refunded.
