If for any reason a member of the bridal party or guest pulls out, the pricing will not be altered due to loss of earnings. Your balance owing will remain the same as per invoice. Extra guests may be added subject to availability

Any known allergies must be declared at the time of booking. This ensures ingredients can be checked against the artists products. If the artist/stylists products are not suitable for the client, then the client will have to provide some of their own products.

Assistant- if a booking is not possible for me to complete on my own due to time constraints, an assistant can be booked for an additional £60 each

Individual lash clusters are included in price of makeup service. Strip lashes are an additional fee or client to buy their own and can be applied for no extra fee. If individual lashes are not required, there is no reduction in any makeup service if declined.

Please note I don’t provide a blow drying service. 

If you do not wish to proceed with the booking after the trial then you agree to notify Makeup by Sam within 7 days of having the initial trial, failure to do so will mean the full wedding balance is still payable
