How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was working as a nail tech in a cute store that sold high-end products. I discovered how much I love makeup and putting makeup on people! Over time I realized that it was a talent and then became my passion!
What types of customers have you worked with?
For weddings, the most common service is makeup with airbrush and lashes. The lashes enhance the eye makeup- great for photos! Airbrush, less Makeup is used and you get a flawless finish!
In the shop, the most common services are waxing, facials, massage and spray tan. When getting married you want to be polished and relaxed with a glow!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I am always amazed, when I have two weddings going on at once. In this case, I organize the wedding parties and only do the brides. I am so lucky to have awesome makeup artists that will come on location and deliver a superb service!
This does not happen often and I am very careful about the planning. The weddings would have to be within a 10 mile radius from each other. It's a lot of work sometimes, but I love what I do! I always take weddings seriously because I understand how important the big day is :)
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Once you have selected a professional and experienced wedding makeup artist be prepared for the trial. This is the first time meeting each other. Your artist will have questions about your wedding and level of comfort with styles of makeup. You want to have an idea of what you like and are comfortable with. Since it is your wedding, you want your guests to recognize you- a great way to describe your look should be "a polished, more enhanced version of yourself!"
Pictures are a great way to describe your look. Find photos that comparable to your coloring.
Bring a camera. Another perspective of the finished product.
Support. Bring a friend or relative.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I am licensed esthetician and experienced with skin. Two years ago I opened my own shop in Norwell mass. I have high standards, am organized and sanitary.
