8. What are these additional charges? **
Additional Charges apply in the following cases:
1. Provision of False eyelash.
    Depending on the quality of lash, different prices will be charged.
    If you require lashes which I do NOT have in stock (e.g.: feather lash), I reserve the right
    to charge transportation fees in acquiring the lash.
    (Cost of false lash can range from $2 to $15, depending on type)
2. Provision of Foundation.

9. Erm... I just want some cool butterflies and flowers!
Other requests such as face and body art can be commissioned as well.

10. Where do you do makeup?
I am comfortable with doing makeup in public. If you do not mind, I can make a trip to your photoshoot/event location, within reasonable limits.
I will NOT travel all the way to the east to do makeup for ONE person. Large group hiring may be considered.
If I know you personally / have met you before and judged that you aren't a psychopath, I am also fine with you coming to my house for makeup.
This is preferred as I will have my whole supply of makeup to use, instead of the those I packed for traveling.

11. What gives you the right to charge for makeup?!
>< If it bothers you that much, don't apply for this service...
I do NOT claim to be professionally trained.
I declare that I am self taught and do not hold a diploma or degree in cosmetology.
However, I am confident of being able to deliver if I take on a request.

12. Why did I not get a favorable response?
1. Makeup service availability is dependent on MY schedule. I am a student before a
    makeup artist... despite my wilting grades.
2. I reserve the right to refuse a request if I feel that I'm not able to meet expectations.
