A Typical Makeup and/or Skincare Consultation

I bet most of you are wondering why you would actually need to consider hiring a consultant, like me, for makeup and/or skincare advice. Well this option is not for everyone, but if you find the cosmetic and skincare sections of department stores and drugstores daunting, a consultant may be able to take the stress out of choosing the right products for you. 

My joy in life is studying the different products out there and seeing which products work and which don't. I love looking up the ingredients and seeing why the products work the way they do. It is then possible to see if there are less expensive products out there with similar ingredients that may work just as well.

Before each session (which is 1 1/2 hrs) I have a quick 30 minute consultation that is free of charge. This way I can get to know the client and what their routine is, as well as what their expectations are of me. I find out if they are interested in a complex skincare routine, a simple skincare routine; whether they want to spend 5 minutes on their makeup in the morning or can spare 10-15 minutes to doll up their face. Another factor in my choice of products for the client is finding out the price range they are comfortable with and which products they are looking to invest a bit more money.

After this mini consultation I am able to research even more and make sure I have some options for the client for the next time we meet. I try to have some samples of the products so they can see what the texture feels like and if it works well with their skin. We also discuss the skincare/makeup routine that will be most effective and easiest to stick to.

This is just a basic overview of the advantages of hiring a consultant to help you navigate through the different channels of skincare and makeup. I decided to offer this service because I know that it can be quite overwhelming approaching a counter and not knowing whether the person helping you is being up front with you or if they are just looking at you as if you are a dollar sign. I am able to take the hassle out of all of that and help you to truly find the products that are best for you.

 I am not claiming to be a doctor, esthetician or dermatologist, but I am very knowledgeable about the products out there today and if I don't have an answer or solution for you right away, I will do everything I can to find that answer for your questions or solution for your concerns.
