That's the good communication and as a result of it customer's satisfaction.

If a customer asks for a style that you are sure would not suit them, how do you convince the customer to go otherwise?

Every aspect of customer service is based on customer's satisfaction! I will in a polite way explain the reason why the to choose the style recommended by me (the professional).

For TV shoot the makeup needs to be more mat and shouldn't be shiny, and minimal but very accurate makeup. While for a live appearance party it can be any beautiful makeup, it depends what's the occasion.
