    This was my first ever client and I wasn’t really sure what I was doingThe girl was going to prom, and before I started she kept on saying that she wanted everything to be perfect. I did the makeup, and I was VERY proud of myself. It was probably the best look that I had ever done, and all the shades matched her dress perfectly. But then the girl said to me no no this isn’t right so I redid it. We went through this cycle around 4 times when I said that I was gonna stop and whatever she got, she would...

    gotta love people who think they can make you do creative work for them for free. Work is work. Just because it's art doesn't mean it's cheap or we can or will do it whenever we can. We wanna get paid for our work.

    Rebecca Jimenez no offence but I would hate to have that. I have emetophobia (fear of vomit) and if I had your vomiting “problem” then I would be passing out every day 😂

    My sister called in a favor from me for emergency wedding makeup and hair as the other artist didn’t work out. The bride was the intended for my Sister’s husband’s brother. I was already suspicious of the entire thing since there was hysterical crying going on in the background when I was called the week before, directly after the incident that caused the other artist to be unavailable. But since the Bride was willing to pay the exorbitant fee for the last minute booking and the wedding was coincidenta...

    I have a story, but it's the other way around. I was "the client".

The woman's regular prices were about 115 for a full face and an extra 10 for lashes. It is actually on the higher end, in my area, but my family has always subscribed to the idea that you get what you pay for, so she was willing to pay the prices to make sure every...
