What Differs with Olivia’s Services:
1. Because I just really care about making a difference for you:
There are many things to do in this world and I chose to dedicate my life in trying to make a difference in your self-confidence and an experience for you to remember. When you come to my service I really want you to see the beauty that you have and for you to remember it.
Often times we don’t appreciate what we have because we don’t know what it is that is beautiful about us. I’m here to show you exactly what it is that you may be overlooking!
2. The dedication and support and focus to make your wishes happen.
How do people view you? How do you want others to view you? How do you want to view yourself?
Whether it be for work, or a special event, many times a bride needs a lot of advice and figuring out how to work their beauty regimen so that on their wedding day things will goal very smoothly or for everyday purposes. Sometimes if you’re not sure on how you should appear for work a little bit of makeup can make a tremendous difference in your self-confidence and the way your peers trust you and view you.
Many brides confide in my expertise before their wedding day to balance their system from stress, or just daily workloads that are leaving them looking drained. If that’s you and you need an extra lift, please don’t hesitate to ask, or read some of my articles I write on my blog to help give you some complimentary advice.
3. Because you get that extra care and time
Have you ever been in a salon or heard of how you get rushed out in that time frame they book for you? What happens if your satisfaction was not met?
Many times when I was just starting out my career working with other artists, many services were done under 30 minutes. I feel this is why many people do not like their makeup application. It is because they didn’t get the time to express what they like about themselves, what their personality is like, as well as what they want their makeup to say about them.
I’ve had that type of rushed experience happen to myself, where I spent over $200 on a haircut to leave in 15minutes in Yorkville.
With my services for an application, I don’t wish for that to happen so I spend on average double the time to ensure that you, or if you’re hiring for your guests at the special event to feel understood as well as loving the results much more.
You will always leave satisfied with your service with me. I make it my mission as you sit in my chair. Otherwise, what is the point of the make up application if you do not feel it is you – or highlights the very best of you?
4. Eyebrow shaping
Have you ever noticed women often with the most balanced eyebrows don’t ever have to wear much makeup and they look stunning?
You could do absolutely beautiful stunning makeup but if your eyebrows are not properly balanced to your face – I call it synergistically (not symmetrical) representing your face, the art of work will be left looking very untidy.
5. Skincare consultation
To minimize how much makeup you end up wearing, have healthy skin.
Sounds so much harder doesn’t it? But what happens if I help you find a solution to your worries?
Have your beauty regime work for you! With my expertise in the aesthetics field working in the most high-end spas for 4 years (before servicing you in makeup and hair), I have much experience knowing products, brands, how it is used and what is effective.
Before your service you will receive my advice and prescription on what I believe will help you. You could purchase ingredients to make yourself, to add to your skincare creams, or simply a product that you can purchase within your budget.
I hope to save you time, money, and your effort in searching out perfect skincare regime.
Should you wish to, your skin can be looked at and analyzed with professional lighting in my home salon before your service. This will help me understand what issues you may be having time to help you with them. This alone is $85 for an hour consultation, but you will have a quick analysis before your makeup service.
6. A brightening skin peel – safe for the utmost sensitive skin
Have you ever seen cakey makeup? Makeup that looks chalky or discolored?
This is mainly because of unnourished skin that is dry, hardened, bumpy, and with a lot of blackheads.
Before your application of makeup, I will be doing skin preparation and ensuring that we work with a polished, smooth, soft, bright, and supple surface. Lifting all that dead skin that we don’t wish for, off your face.
The reason why you don’t want to just apply cream and then some makeup right ontop of it is because on the surface of your skin definitely has all the dead skin buildup. When you apply makeup to the surface the makeup will only sit on top of that. The dead skin then looks dry, flaky, even cakey, and very unappealing. To make sure that you skin appears smooth need to prep it properly with the right skincare steps. This also helps in reducing the amount of makeup you wear!
7. High-end professional products
The products that I use in my kit are either highly reviewed, tried and tested by many out there to be safe and effective, or products that I have tried in use with outstanding results. They are safe for all skincare types and all skincare colors.
Such brands that I use are: yaby cosmetics, makeup forever, Dior, Chanel, Jane Iredale, Kett Cosmetics and many more brands they outsource from around the world in its early, Korea, Taiwan and Japan. All the beauty houses of the world.
How do you know that the artist you choose will show up for you on your special event or dates that you book them? Do they keep your appointments or will they change on you?
My reputation has been there for at least 4 years where I have always been to every booking bride, or request has been asked of. I make it my mission to be there for you. It is my service that I provide where you do not have to worry if I will show up or if I will show up on time.
I always ensure that we have enough time with my services. Your satisfaction is my business.
9. Consistent training and self-improvement to be a great service provider for you.
How do you know if your artist is up to date with the latest products, techniques, and one that cares about you to do on their spare time, personal self-upgrading?
You will have an artist that consistently self-upgrades and with courses with makeup artistry, hairstyling, skincare, as well as the business side.
Often every month to two months I will be attending a different course in upgrading at least one of these areas. This business I have is fun to me to consistently learn as well as be able to give and provide more for you even after our initial service together when you come back to see the title always be something different.
Every month I have at least invested $300 monthly since November 2012, and $510-$680 every month since March of this year 2013.
These courses often cost anywhere from $300-$3000. I put a lot of my earnings back into the industry so that you may get the best out of your service every single time.
10. 100% Consistent product knowledge and research.
Do you know what products work best and what new products will work on you?
You will consistently receive the best and latest products have tried and tested. I often research, read articles on, personally purchase, and try out products that have been either highly rated recommended or sought out.
Sometimes these products are not available to purchase locally so extra effort is required in locating them and shipping them from oversee countries. On average every two months I invest $300 to $500 worth of cosmetics to try for you.
11. Proper disinfection with tools and products and sanitation practice (that doesn’t happen very often in the work field)
Not sure what is in that artists kit? Is there any products that was shared or contaminated?
Many times when you are investing in last with the makeup artist, they have to cut costs in order to make some profit from the service you are paying.
I have seen first hand many artists that contaminate their products such as reusing the same lipgloss wand on every person and putting it back directly into the tube!
To ensure proper sanitation and methods are used, it is more costly to use disposable products, as well as purchasing fresh products that are not outdated or after the expiry date, and especially products safe for the eye area. The eye is incredibly sensitive and no bacteria should lodge in between the lashes so that you can have an infection.
I write this here because you think it is common sense for makeup artists to practice these methods but some ignore these practices, believing that reusing and contaminating products will not harm individuals. I have seen infections and I do not wish for the same to you. So to my practice I definitely incorporate hygiene and proper disinfection. If you value sanitation it is definitely in my books!
12. Stress-free Mobile services
Ever in a rush to get out and make sure you get somewhere, and on time?
Don’t worry about that anymore because I will take on that responsibility to get to you.
How would you like to have a salon in your very own home or location where you are staying?
I will bring that fun and pampering experience set up an atmosphere for us to all enjoy in. Do not worry about where to set up or anything at all, leave that to me and I will get that organized for you. The things I may borrow from you are regular chairs in the house, a table to put makeup and hair products and tools on, or electrical outlets.
I will be bringing with me professional lighting equipment, a tall makeup chair, as well as any other necessary equipment I may need to get set up for you.
13. The proper eyelashes to fit your face and eyes
Many times to see a beautiful lashes in its packaging that when you put it on your eyes, it often is too dramatic, make your eyes look very sleepy, or even make
your eyes look smaller, the opposite of what you wish for!
How do we know what lashes suit our face? How long should they be? How dense should they be? Where do we trim them so that it accentuates our eyes horizontally?
Eyelashes are quite essential to make up. Whether you wish to wear false lashes or to simply accentuate your own. It really opens up your eyes and therefore it allows your expressions to come forth in your face. That is why it is so pretty to accentuate it because they say so much about how you feel, as well as who you are.
14. Wearing colours that add youth and brightness to the face
Do you know if you should wear coral? Peach? Or pink? What happens if the pink that you’ve been wearing all this time has been aging your face?
Guess no more! I am a registered, certified, professional image consultant, I will be able to tell you whether or not if the pink or peach suits you better.
A lot of times artists are taught by the schools to judge your ethnicity color tone and then what will look nice, however I believe there is a better technique in highlighting what brightens your face and what makes it look dull.
Wearing the wrong colors can accentuate fine lines, dark circles and expression lines, under the eyes, as well as deeper laugh lines.
Color really does make a difference when you are expressing yourself with your face!
15. A secret beauty oasis and private home salon
Like a private getaway? How about a nice retreat to be pampered? =)
Should you require any private consultation away from home, I have a relaxing home salon for you to be invited, relax, and pampered in.
This area is equipped with professional lighting, a chair, as well as my entire collection of makeup products and hair products. Not to mention the beauty tools as well!
This is my secret space where you will be invited should you require a trial, consultation, makeup lesson or to be seen as a relaxing oasis for you to go to enjoy.
I could even bring in cookies, snacks and freshly brewed tea for us to enjoy and get to know each other before our service.
If you enjoy essential-oils, and essential-oil infused incense and candles, I can definitely set that up for you to experience and rejuvenate in as well.
I dedicate my time here to help and I appreciate you for reading this page on what I hope to do for you. I look forward to hearing from you!
