Step into the world of bridal beauty with me! As a Makeup Artist entrenched in the bridal industry, I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with numerous hair salons and companies. What ignites my passion? Collaboration. It’s in those moments that true magic happens! Now, while I do receive my fair share of admiration for my work, there’s one compliment often reserved for hairstylists that I rarely hear about myself: “She did that SO fast!”

Ever wonder how hairstylists breeze through their tasks with such speed? I certainly did. It took some introspection, note-taking, and comparison, but I’ve unlocked the secret, and it’s an eye-opener! Understanding the distinct processes and demands of hair styling versus Makeup Artistry has been revelatory. These two domains, though intimately connected, operate on different timelines and client expectations.

Picture this: a bride-to-be, her special day fast approaching, eagerly anticipating her bridal makeup session. Yet, amidst the excitement, distractions abound. Phones buzzing, conversations flowing—a symphony of modern life. But here’s the challenge: precision and focus are paramount in my art. I can’t quite achieve that flawless eyeliner or perfect lipstick application if my client is glued to their screen or engaged in conversation. For this reason, I include the gratuity of buffer time.

Even with a no/low cell phone policy in place, these hurdles persist. And while I may not receive accolades for lightning-fast service, what truly matters is ensuring my clients understand that investing in the quality time of meticulous attention ensures a flawless outcome and a long-lasting application.

This is a key reason why I require a bridal preview (practice run) makeup appointment prior to wedding day glamour.

Dedication, expertise, and care go into each appointment. It’s not just about makeup; it’s about creating moments of beauty and confidence that last a lifetime.
