For a complete list of services and their respective pricing, click the button below :)



To secure a date, a signed contract with 25% of the total cost as a deposit is required. The deposit is non refundable and non transferable. Your date is not secured until both the signed contract and the deposit are received.*


Please be advised that the max amount of people that I can realistically do by myself is 8(eight). If the number of persons requesting makeup services exceeds this amount, I will require the help of an assistant. This may or may not increase the total amount the client will pay on the day of the event.


*If booking for a lesson, a deposit is not required. 


The final balance is due on the day of the event as one payment – no exceptions. The person(s) responsible for the entire balance of payment is the person(s) who has signed the booking contract. Acceptable forms of payment are: cash, Venmo(@Rita_Lorraine_Parks), Cash App($RitaLorraineParks), cashier’s check, or money order made payable to Rita Lorraine Parks.


I include 30 miles round trip complementary! Above that, a mileage fee of $0.65/mile will be charged. The amount will be determined at time of inquiry.

All costs for travel are to be paid by client.  Costs may include, but are not limited to: airfare, hotel, transportation, parking, per diem, service incidentals and all taxes*.

*For out of state clients, please contact me for negotiating specifics on travel costs.

A contract will be signed by the person booking services for a particular session, and will specify the location, date, time, number of persons receiving makeup service, and what time each person will have reserved. If services for more than one person are being booked, all deposits must be paid at the time of contract signing to guarantee each reservation. Due to the possibility of schedule conflicts, additional makeup added after contract signing or changes made to the location, date, and time of event will be done at the sole discretion of Rita Lorraine Parks. This contract is the only agreement between the person(s) booking / contracting the services of Rita Lorraine Parks of Songbird Artistry by Rita Lorraine.


A late fee of $15 will be charged for every 15 minutes a client is late for their scheduled time, or if the makeup application exceeds allotted time due to delays caused by the client. Contract will state the times late fees will begin and the amount charged and will be initialed and approved by client.


All brushes, tools and makeup products are kept sanitary and are sanitized between every makeup application. Makeup products used are hypoallergenic.  Any skin condition and/or allergy should be reported by the client to the makeup artist in writing prior to application and, if need be, a sample test of makeup may be performed on the skin to test reaction. Client(s) agree to release the makeup artist, Songbird Artistry by Rita Lorraine, its owners, and all employees and agents from liability for any skin complications due to allergic reactions.
