A Chat with Valerie Gail: Professional Makeup Artist
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My prices are always fair, I travel to you, and cater to my clients’ needs. I pride myself in providing exceptional customer service, and use skincare and professional makeup products that are animal and cruelty free.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My passion for makeup artistry stems from years of practice and experimentation. Watching and listening to girls throughout my life tell me the “correct way” to apply makeup made me want to branch out and do it my way. I am a unique and spontaneous individual who wants my work to reflect that.
What do you love most about your job?
I spent years practicing to make perfect and worked incredibly hard to lift my own business off the ground. I am so proud of my work because it’s mine, and I can deliver more personalized customer service that way.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best feedback I’ve ever received was from a bridal client who needed an artist at the last minute. She was so appreciative that I drove over 200 miles for her trial, then again the following week for her wedding. I went above and beyond for them to ensure that their needs were properly met.
