BRIDAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
TERMS & CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions apply to makeup services provided by Rachael Blackwell to you. Upon making a booking with Rachael Blackwell, you agree to the following Terms & Conditions.
Rachael Blackwell requires a minimum of 3 makeup applications to travel to a location on Wednesdays and Thursdays. A minimum of 5 is required from Fridays-Sundays. Please note that if the number drops below 5 persons, 5 makeup applications must still be paid for in the final invoice. This also includes up to 7.
If you require more than 7 makeup applications, I will work with a second MUA. This will incur a larger travel fee to cover the cost of the second makeup artist travel to the location. Also pricing may differ between makeup artists.
Makeup application is usually 1 hour, I always allow 30 minutes arrival time before your wedding to set up/park etc.
DEPOSITS To secure your wedding date a $300 booking fee is to be paid. Upon receipt of payment of this deposit, your booking is confirmed. This is a non-refundable fee and is in place to cover last minute cancellations and change of mind and form the cancellation fee if the booking is cancelled. Under no circumstances is a booking held without a deposit.
The remainder of the invoice for weddings is sent out 2-3 weeks prior to the wedding with all information confirmed.
This is to be paid prior to the wedding and a screenshot/receipt of the payment is required by email.
All my bank details will be provided in the invoice.
Please note that If any changes are to be made to the booking, cancellations, change of mind, etc a minimum of 8 weeks’ notice is required to adjust for any time changes due to other bookings to avoid a 50-100% loss of payable invoice amount [50%: Within 8 weeks | 100%: Within 4 weeks This also includes any changes due to Covid 19.
In the unlikely event that I am unable to fulfil your booking, I will notify you in the first instance and provide you with a replacement makeup artist, one whom I recommend highly. If I cannot find a suitable replacement makeup artist, I will offer you a full refund.
MAKEUP TRIAL Your makeup trial can be booked online via my website www.ru-makeup.com by clicking book now, select wedding trial then choose your date and time. Wedding trials can be booked in on Wednesdays or Thursdays and are included in my bridal packages. If you are not happy with your makeup trial or I feel I am not the perfect makeup artist for your wedding day, I am happy to cancel your booking, however the deposit is non refundable. If you arrive over 15 minutes late for your trial appointment, your appointment will be cancelled, and the full amount may be invoiced to you to cover loss of income. I cannot complete your makeup after arriving 15 minutes late due to usually being booked back to back. This is also my time and as it is included in the package any lateness or no shows will not be tolerated.
MAKEUP PREP Please arrive with a clean face. If you decide on having facials or treatments, please allow adequate time prior to your wedding/trial. 2 weeks is usually a sufficient time. With regards to waxing/threading, it’s ideal to allow at least a few days buffer between waxing/threading and the wedding day in case your skin is irritated from waxing/threading treatments. Keep in mind if you are having a spray tan prior to the wedding day, I would recommend getting one so you get an accurate representation of how you will look on the day. Spray tan can also dry the skin, so specific products may be needed to achieve the best result for your wedding date. Spray tans are best completed 2 days prior to your trial/wedding day.
LASHES I will not apply individual lashes to lash lifts, so if you do have them regularly and would like individual lashes I recommend not having one around 3 months prior to your Trial or wedding date. Lash application does not work well on a lash lift. If you have semi permanent lashes this is fine, however please note I can create a lash to suit each eye shape using individual lashes for your big day. This is included in the price.
TRAVEL FEE/PARKING Inner city Brisbane travel (20km from Ashgrove)) is included in your bridal package, All other location are POA Any further and Travel fees are calculated to cover the cost of fuel and time traveling to the location. If Rachael has to travel more than 3 Hours one way, accommodation is required. This must be private accommodation for safety/personal reasons - there must not be anyone else staying in the same accommodation as Rachael. Any questions on this, please let me know prior to booking. The client is responsible in the event that any hotel and street parking fees are incurred as a result of the location of the booking.
