I honestly LOVE ringing in the new year. It’s the perfect opportunity to look back and reflect on all the happenings of the past year, but forces forward thinking for the upcoming one. Taking inventory on all the concepts that worked versus what didn’t work helps prepare for a new year- A new beginning. With that being said, here are my business highlights of 2015 as well as the “newness” of 2016.

2015 HIGHLIGHTS

Beauty Egg Hunt

I created the first annual Face Makeup Artistry Beauty Egg Hunt. It was held on the front lawn of the Carson Center in downtown Paducah. On cue, participants scurried and hunted for extra special eggs, containing popular beauty products! A fun, unique version of a festive pastime was brought to life! Proceeds went to a philanthropic organization I hold near and dear to my heart: Look Good Feel Better. It felt like the perfect way to support an organization that focuses on women’s BEAUTY needs and desires during cancer treatment.

Paducah Compacts

I’ve managed to create a specialized line of custom cosmetics, the most unique product being the PADUCAH Makeup Compact.
It is a mini masterpiece that creates a sweet reminder of the sights and experiences of Paducah, Kentucky. Inspired by unique souvenir vintage makeup compacts created as mementos depicting iconic landmarks, this useful artistic palette of color brings an aesthetic quality to the makeup application experience. This compact serves as a reminder of one’s time in Paducah.

New Policies!

Booking Policy (Non-Bridal)

My website allows clients to conveniently book an appointment online and to pay ahead of time in full. Clients have 24 hours from booking time to cancel the appointment and have their payment returned if they book over 1 week (7 days) out from appointment date. If clients book less than 1 week (7 days) out from appointment date, the payment cannot be returned.  If client does not wish to book online, credit card information can be called in over the phone or cash can be submitted in advance. Appointments are not officially booked until full upfront non-refundable payment is made. Checks are no longer accepted for services. Anyone that needs to move/reschedule an appointment for excusable reasons (senior picture date has undesirable weather; photographer reschedule; Event date rescheduled), may use the full payment as transferable credit for product purchases.

Private Makeup Lessons

Sitting Fees: For anyone booking a Private Makeup Lesson, the appointment is designed for personal, customized attention for 1 person. For any client bringing in another person to the lesson, a sitting fee of $50 per person will be charged.

Product Purchases

Checks are not accepted for in-studio product purchases. Payment may be made with cash or card.

Product orders are not placed until upfront full payment is made via card or cash.
