Prices may increase periodically to reflect industry standard for current level of service and expertise. If you were quoted a different or older rate, your quote will be honored as a courtesy for up to 30 days from the date the quote was given, even without contract signing. Older quote may be secured once contract is signed within that 30 day period. If you are under contract, the quote on the contract will be honored through your event date and price increases will not affect your booking.
Client is subject to the unavailability of the Artist and will not hold artist responsible for circumstances out of her control including illness, accidents, acts of God that may prevent her from delivering specified services. Artist will attempt to obtain a trusted and skilled "back up artist" to the best of her abilities if any issue shall arise. *
Additional Artists are automatically available to large bridal parties that require services. If services are to be completed in an extreme short amount of time (i.e. 4 makeup or hair in 1-2 hours) an assistant booking fee of $150 per artist will be applied to cover agency fees in addition to each service cost (each Makeup or Hair service is approximately 30 minutes). If additional bookings do arise during date of event, artists will gladly work with additional clients as time permits but will not be required to do so (artists will be paid in cash or venmo for any additional services).
All persons involved in makeup/hair appointments need to be available at the scheduled time of said appointment in order to not break this agreement (makeup or hair appointment lasts approximately 30-45 minutes). All makeups for more than one person must be at the same location and consecutive in time (no gaps in between). A late fee of $25.00 will be charged and added to the final bill for when a client is late for the scheduled time, or if scheduled makeup exceeds allotted time because of client delays. Artists are not responsible for client delays. *
A work area needs to be made available for the makeup artists at said location. Ample lighting, whether by means of natural light or by lamps, and outlet is necessary for services to be performed properly. A barstool / chair may be requested. *
All brushes and makeup products are kept sanitary and are sanitized between every makeup application. Makeup products used are hypoallergenic. Any skin condition should be reported by the client to the Artist prior to application and, if need be, a sample test of makeup may be performed on the skin to test reaction. Client(s) agree to release the makeup artist, "Surely Beautiful" Shirley Arcia, and all employees and agents from liability for any skin complications due to allergic reactions. *
All costs for travel to a booked event are to be paid by client. Costs may include, but are not limited to: airfare, hotel, transportation, parking, per diem, early call time, service incidentals and all taxes. The amount will be included with the final bill and due for payment on the day of the event. *
As you saw in our full list of Bridal Services, you decide as Bride what your own package will be by selecting the services that better suit your needs. Consulting with your makeup artist can help in the selection of your services, images have been included to help you with your selections.
Any terms and conditions mentioned here and written in personal correspondence with the client (via text/email) will apply to your booking, with or without a contract, unless the written contract states otherwise.

BRIDE FREE CONSULTATION
Included in your booking is a free consultation via email/phone. Once you confirm your booking you can send images of your favorite makeup and hair looks, & of your outfit/jewelry. I'd also like a selfie in the best lighting you can find (natural by a window or doorway is best, preferably from the waist up), and a photograph of your hair that shows texture and length.
If you prefer to meet for a discussion I travel up to 15mi. free of charge, a small travel fee will apply for any mileage over but some clients like to meet halfway to avoid that fee. I'm located in El Monte. During your consultation, you may try on your choice of outfit and jewelry and I will assist with the jewelry placement and preview of dupatta draping, consults may last up to 1 hour.
