AMW Makeover: Wedding Happiness

Wedding day ---
On this special occasion, every bride wants to look their best and the pressure is on you, as a make-up artist to make her the most beautiful Bride not only on photos but also in person!  You are also tasked to make sure the make-up stays all day even if she perspires or cries! 

Each tiny detail needs to be taken in account for, the Bridal dress, the hairstyle, the color motif, etc... everything has to work well together.  

And the most important of all? The bride HAS to look like herself! 

With all those stress, why do I love this job of mine? There are a lot of reasons and I'll just name a few!

The cute stuff laid out on bed for photographs!  Brides and Grooms are getting more and more creative nowadays....


Let's not forget the gorgeous fresh flowers for the bride and her entourage to hold!
Flowers give me the energy!

I get the chance to get to know my bride as most of them would talk to you and tell you about their wedding jitters.  It feels great to be able to calm them down and share my own wedding jitters, my own funny wedding memories! 

Here's one... I was drove to the wrong church 15 minutes before my wedding!  Thank God I was able to advise the driver to the right church on time!  *laughs*


I am very personal with my clients, I make sure to cover all the concerns they have.  Skin redness?  Zits?  Dry and oily areas? Under eye circles? Brides do share to you their worries and concerns which makes me feel honored because they trust me on the most important day of their lives!


I also get to talk to the family members.  I get surprised at times on how small the world is!  We get to link our common friends!

Even though the chitchat is there, re-touching should always be done before they leave the make-up area after they changed into their gowns.  You also get to help them to make sure their gowns, jewelries and shoes are all worn well!


Best of all,  the simple transformations I can see by bringing the beauty on each client!

I will share to you the make-up looks I've done for the most recent make-up gig.  I want to thank Emily for recommending me to be her bestfriend's make-up artist!
