MAKEUP ON DEMAND
I get this question a lot, usually in a state of panic: Who can do my makeup for my work event/charity gala/headshots/big night out? In the past, if you weren’t a bride, the options for on-location professional makeup services in the Twin Cities were limited at best. Which makes Warpaint International’s Makeup Memberships all the more brilliant. For a flat rate, a seasoned makeup artist will come to you twice a month for a full makeup (or hair) application. The best part: Online booking. You’re welcome. $69.99 per month or $799 per year, warpaintinternational.com
