I have my makeup trial on Saturday. I believe the makeup artist is an independent contractor with the company I called that set me up with her. The company charges a flat rate which they say cover the cost of the day of makeup and also the trial. Although, I suppose thats not necessarily true because if you cancel after your trial, you are still charged a reduced rate. So anyways, do I tip after the trial, or do I wait until the day of to tip? I’m thinking I should wait since its a flat rate… but I really don’t want her to be upset with me or think badly of me if I don’t tip on Saturday, I want her to look forward to doing my makeup on my wedding day not think she is putting in this work and is not going to get a tip. And if I should tip, how much? The flat rate is $175, but if I cancel after the trial I am charged $75. So 20% of $75?
Thanks in advance for your opinions!
