Bride Plus 3, 4, or MORE!

It's October ... I mean, I seriously cannot believe it is already October! I know people always say every year goes by so quickly, but THIS year is almost over!!! 

It has been a busy, hectic, and fun year. And I have had so many weddings these past few months! I don't know about other wedding vendors, but for me, between May and October go  by in a daze! Plus I was honored to be the hair and makeup artist for The 9th NotWedding Atlanta event last week (more on that soon)!

I honestly feel like I have the most amazing clients! Not only are my brides amazing, but their friends, bridesmaids, mothers, aunts, and grandmothers are also fabulous!

When a bride contacts me, very rarely is she interested in makeup just for herself. 95% of my brides want their entire bridal party to look their most beautiful ... I mean let's think about it, the investment that you make for the photographer and videographer ... Everyone needs to look fab!

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of working with Ashlee who I has already gotten to know quite well. Her maid of honor, Nikkee, contacted me about a trial and we have had a great time ever since! It was a such a joy seeing all of them have such a great time enjoying the morning together and getting glammed up!

I did hair and makeup for the bride and mother of the bride (and even changed the brides hair up for her reception as well). I also got to do makeup for the 5 bridesmaids. Rachel, who was one of those bridesmaids was kind enough to send me a selfie a few days ago.

She wrote the sweetest note and gave me the best compliment ever! She is naturally quite gorgeous so glamming her up was a lot of fun! She seriously smokin' hot!

Thank you Rachel for this photo, your spirit, and kindness! I look forward to the day when I can work with you again. The entire bridal party was so attentive to Ashlee and you could feel the love. And I'm already excited to see some of the professional photos :-) The wedding took place at Primrose Cottage, which has a lovely bridal suite and is perfectly photogenic.

For me it's so much fun to create different looks for everyone, making sure everyone feels beautiful and is comfortable. It's important to make sure that "glam time" is stress free, full of laughter, beautiful memories, and flawless faces! 

Stay beautiful! ... Inside and out


Skin Care Search Over?

I finally received my package from Dermalogica today. I say finally because I had some major customer service issues with them pertaining to shipping. For me customer service is MAJOR, and if a company is lacking, I'm uninterested. However, I've been having some major skin issues lately and Dermalogica came highly recommended. 

I purchased the products about 5 days ago because I was at my wits end with my skin. I have super sensitive, oily skin that reacts to everything. When I say everything I mean EVERYTHING! ... From someone's perfume, foods my body hates, medication, weather extremes, and everything else. For the past couple of months nothing has calmed my skin and I have tried luxury brands to drugstore to all natural. 

I purchased the products about 5 days ago and needed them immediately (hence the shipping/customer service issue). But due to skin that can't even stand water running on it right now, I will be trying them out.

I purchased the Ultra Calming Cleanser, Ultra Calming Mist, Active Moist (which I do keep in my makeup kit for clients), and the Antioxidant Hydramist ... I also received a sample of their Precleanse.

I'm hoping to have some type of success with them tonight and if all goes well I'll give you an update in about 2 weeks ;-) 

Stay beautiful! ... Inside and out
