Mayhem # 1100231
*I am a professionally trained makeup artist with more than 4 years in the industry. All of my training came from cosmetics companies Estee Lauder, Clinique and MAC. I was also a former beauty advisor for Estee Lauder and a skincare/makeup consultant for Clinique.
*I am available for photo shoots, special events, weddings, runway events, etc. I am very open to trying new ideas and concepts so please contact me and we can brainstorm together
*All products I use are high quality department store products. I rarely use products found in a drug store. Some brands in my kit include (but are not limited to); Estee Lauder, Clinique, MAC, Makeup Forever, Too Faced, Clarins, Lancome, NARS, etc.
*I also have the ability to assist with styling, including wardrobe and hair styling. I have limited hair supplies but in the past I've learned there isn't much you can't create with a brush, some bobby pins and industrial strength hair spray I would be happy to assist with mild hair styling complimentary with my makeup services (just let me know ahead of time so I know to bring my supplies)
*I have some experience in special effects makeup and body painting- however I do not have my own supplies yet
*I do have a full time job so all of my projects are scheduled around that. I try to keep an updated schedule below to show days I am free. Please let me know if you need work on a day that is not listed as OPEN and I will try to fit you in
In conclusion- I am super easy going, laid back and easy to work with. I'm also quite friendly as well :-) I have a great respect for the clients I work with and I take every job that I work on EXTREMELY seriously. I will never show up late or cancel a shoot last minute. In addition, I love to assist in the creative process with other artists and models so please bounce ideas off me for projects and together I'm sure we can come up with something brilliant!
I quote every rate based on the type of project, how many models are involved, how many looks needed, and time. I prefer to do a flat rate for my shoots as opposed to an hourly rate or rate "per look"
I do ask when booking a project with me that if any details about the project change between date of booking and date event that I am notified- changes in cast, hours and number of looks can effect my rate and the last thing I want on the day of the shoot is to be negotiating new rates
For shoots requiring travel or large/high budget shoots I require the first 50% as a down payment that is non-refundable if the shoot is canceled.
I am open to *test shoots* for new photographers. For a test shoot I will lower my rate slightly if the photographer intends to use me as a regular artist for their projects.
TFP: Because of my busy schedule and the cost/quality of my products I do not schedule any TFP
I am willing to travel as long as my schedule permits it. Traveling is pretty easy for me, I work for a car rental agency so I get VERY cheap rates on rentals.
I do ask that my travel expenses are compensated to a degree- I am flexible negotiate and work those into the MUA rate for my services as well.
As of now I have the ability to travel throughout Oregon, for example- Eugene, Bend/Redmond, Oregon Coast, Roseberg and southern Oregon.
**2011--- Right now I am taking bookings for weekend projects in the Portland Metro area and limited projects in Eugene.
Below is a list of clients I have worked with in the past and that I highly recommend!
