For an upcoming costume contest, that was offering cash prizes, I decided to increase my chances of winning. In order to do that, I hired a very talented Manchester makeup artist, that I was connected with via a very good friend that used her. I arrived at her office, two hours before the party I was to attend that had the costume contest, to meet the artist. I had some ideas about what I thought the make up should look like, and upon meeting Patty, I knew that I was in the right hands so to speak. I felt after trying on my costume and getting her feedback, she knew exactly what to do. So as I took the chair, I felt extremely confident that this experience was going to be worth the service fee. The fee was extremely reasonable for the final results, which took close to an hour to complete.
