I want a "natural" or "simple" makeup look. Can I pay less if I want less makeup?
Believe it or not, "barely there" makeup actually requires sometimes the same amount of product as would a soft or full glam look. In order to make the complexion look "skin-like", it may require using more foundation, for example, than you would imagine! Because of this, we can not estimate how much product will be used to create a "barely there" look, therefore we cannot adjust the pricing to a lower rate.
