Friends who become clients. Clients who become friends. Both are so special to me.
Regardless of the length of our relationship, the happiness of the person in my chair is my biggest goal. I achieve this by treating each bride like a dear friend. We will laugh, potentially cry, and I am going to be 100% real with you.
This means that if you are requesting a look that I feel is unfitting of the wedding style, face shape or skin type, I will tell you.
In the nicest way possible of course!
But this is why we do trials. To try! Maybe you have requested cool tones for your entire face while your wedding colors are all bright and cheerful. I would suggest that we try to warm up the face while still meeting your request with some cool tones on the eyes.
A past bride really appreciated when I suggested to change the hair. While her gown was extremely chic and elegant, she had requested beachy waves due to a good ol' case of Pinterest over dose! She was elated with the finished look because it felt cohesive and truly her.
I am also so overly aware of how important my interactions with you are. This is YOUR big day! As soon as I walk in the room, I am gathering information on how your interactions are, what kind of music you are listening to, and your body language.
What do I do with this information?
I understand how to make small changes to help you relax and enjoy yourself. If your girls are rowdy, I'll pump up the energy and jump in on the fun. But, maybe you are feeling a bit anxious but the music is fast and loud. I may as the person with the music to slow it down and lower the volume. Sometimes, a simple hand on the knee or hug is what's needed in the moment.
My kit includes more than just makeup!
I am also going to make as many accommodations for you as possible. I don't want to cause you any stress.
Do you want to be outside? Let's do it!
Do you need to stop and eat something? Go for it! Take care of yourself.
Did mom change her mind and want makeup? I will stay as long as I can to complete any additional applications.
Want to change your entire look? OK!
I am here for YOU!
What I am trying to get at is that you are important to me. All of you! The girl I have known for ten years to the girl who found me on WeddingWire!
You do not only hire me for my skills, but my heart too.
