Always end the makeup session by providing a beverage of the client’s choice. Healthy and fun treats should be offered, as well as a heated mitten hand treatment with a luxurious brand of hand and body products. Or, in very cold weather, consider providing a paraffin hand treatment during the client’s makeup session. Clients love this bonus treat, and they usually will purchase the hand products used from your retail area, too.

It is also important to provide a face chart painted and labeled with the products used during a session. You should also provide a written how-to explanation, along with a coupon inside the client’s bag of purchases or at checkout providing a discount off her next visit and purchase. People love surprises, especially if it is a savings off their next retail purchase, add-on or free sample.
