I don't know about you but of all the various types of makeup that I do, wedding makeup has got to be the most heart-warming for me. Why? Because I get to be a part of one of the most important and memorable days for a woman, her wedding day.
This client, absolutely no stranger to me, mentioned that she was getting married in Jamaica. Of course, I gave her the face because I doubt that I would be able to go to Jamaica for her wedding. A few months later, I received an email from her inquiring about bridal makeup services. I did a little cart wheel! Plans had changed and Jamaica was no longer on the "list".
First there was the bridal makeup trial....then a second one.....then wedding dress dilemma on d-day! I thought the first makeup trial went well until the bride rang a few days later telling me that she had an allergic reaction to the makeup (this was 4 days before the wedding). Hmm, I had to quickly think of plan B. Plan B was pretty much to buy a completely different set of makeup and a new set of brushes. Oh for the love of my clients......
On d-day, all seemed to be going well until the bride got in her dress and what a GORGEOUS dress it was....then......the zip broke. Agh boi! *hand over eyes* To make a long story short, a seamstress was quickly called up to fix the zip, stitch the bride back in to her dress and send her on her merry way. I must say, the bride kept it together. I would've died.
Here comes the bride...
