This warms my heart – from Michelle

One morning I wake up & find Michelle’s “belated thank you” in my Inbox. And I can’t help going through the day not feeling like a million buck. I’m happy knowing how happy Michelle was and how perfect her wedding day went …  It’s one of the biggest reasons why I chose to be in this profession full-time. Working with models for fashion shoots is great as it feeds my creative hunger and passion for art, however, working with brides brings me a much deeper sense of fulfillment. It’s more than just a job.

“Hi Aimee,
Happy New Year! I hope that you have been well and that 2013 is off to a good start for you. My apologies for the delay in writing to you since I last saw you on the morning of my wedding in October. The past three months since our wedding have really flown by!
I wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job with my wedding hair and make-up, as well as with my sister’s hair and mother’s hair, on the day of my wedding.Our wedding day went as perfectly as we could imagine; it felt very special to be surrounded by so many of our family and friends for a day of celebration. I got so many compliments on my appearance, and I have your talent and hard work to thank for that!  I think my family and friends were really impressed to see how glamorous I could look;)We were also very happy with how our photographs turned out, and we will treasure them for years to come.
By making me feel good and look good on my wedding day, you were a huge part of making my wedding a wonderful experience, even though I only saw you in the morning! Here is a link to a few wedding photographs. I also included a photo of me with my hair down in case you want to show your clients how short their hair can be and still make for a glamorous up-do!
Thank you again for everything. I hope we’ll cross paths again!
Warm wishes,



Just like many other clients, Michelle booked me before the trial. So, over emails, Michelle said she thinks that a natural look would work best for her personality. When she does wear makeup, it’ll be just  lipstick and powder.  She’s a very fit, down-to-earth, energetic woman who loves the outdoors. She said though she does love some of the smoky looks I’ve done for my past clients, she was worry smoky wouldn’t work for her…

At the trial, I convinced her that a semi-natural smoky eyes would work just great, glam but not looking too made-up and will be good enough for photos. And it would also go just fine with her whole look & personality. She smiled and said “okay”.  Knowing she’s not crazy for pink (wink), I gave her bronzy cheeks for a healthy glow and a dark mauve lipstick instead of pink or peach color. She loved the eyes, lip color, how her skin looks and everything… but one thing I couldn’t get her to wear was … false lashes. Oh no!!! … There’s a joke for us makeup artists that if there’s no time left to do anything to the eyes, at least pop a pair of lashes on. It’s an instant wow, especially for pictures. So, imagine how heartbroken I was when Michelle rejected the falsies effect…:)

On her wedding day, I felt like a good friend of the family, so welcomed. They were all so kind and fun to work with. It was just amazing. Michelle seemed quite relax, and very happy. She kept smiling. When she wasn’t sitting for me, she was in the kitchen chatting away with her mom, brother and sister. Beautifying her was so easy!  As for the hair, hers was very short, and not a lot for volume either. But, I managed to making it looks like a low updo for her, no extension, no fake hair.

Here are some photos of my wonderful bride. Please note: no false lashes! Just mascara:)

Congratulations Michelle! Wishing you & Josh a lifetime of love and happiness!
