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!
