Hello everyone this is my very first blog so I hope you enjoy some of the information I will share with all of you.
First of all the #1 thing I dislike the most from my clients is when they sit in my chair for their preview or special event makeup appointment and I say to them "what were you thinking for your makeup look" and the response is "I don't care do whatever you want you are the professional". First of all, you should care what I am doing you are paying me to offer you a service and good money I might add. Second of all If I just met you for the first time most likely I will not know off the bat your taste or style. Thirdly if you don't care well then why don't I make my job easier for me and do whats quick and fast.
What you can do to make my job easy and to assure you get exactly what you want? You can start by telling me or showing me what the dress looks like, how you will do your hair, what colors are the accessories, shoes and bridal party dresses. A couple of pictures of inspiration is extremely helpful. The venue location, wedding theme and time of ceremony also plays a big part of the makeup look.
See your makeup look will be based on a number of things. I know I am the professional but getting a better understanding of what you are really like makes it so much more helpful. This makeup look is a collaboration between the two of us. If you tell me that you never wear makeup well that tells me a whole lot. If you tell me you just love to wear colorful or dramatic makeup that gives me another understanding of what you like. Your interpretation of natural/dramatic is completely different than mine. I cannot read minds so please tell me what yours is thinking and I am sure your vision will come to life just as you planned in that pretty little head of yours.
