One of my old sorority sisters (ZTA!) from the University of Georgia recently came into town all the way from her current home of New York City and dropped by my place for a bridal consult/teaching session. I hadn't seen her in over 9 years so it was super fun to catch up and hang out with such a cool and down to earth lady! And play with makeup the whole time!!
Since Kerri is getting married at a tropical location, she won't have access to a makeup artist there. So she called on JennySue to give her advice on colors right for her skin tone, then to teach her how to apply those colors, techniques of application, as well as how to apply false eyelashes before the big day. We wanted to keep her look simple and not too fussy since she is such a naturally beautiful girl, but wanted the lashes to add a bit more glamour!
Well after doing her consult I sent her on her way back up to NYC (with a new fabulous job working with the Ralph Lauren account!) hoping that our teaching session went well and that she learned a lot and felt comfortable applying the false lashes. And what do you know- she was able to apply all she had learned for her engagement photos! This was a great opportunity for her to try out her own makeup skills before the big day. Check out the photos of Kerri and her cutie husband-to be, on her photographer's blog, Michelle Hayes, and see what a great job she did and just the overall cool vibe of the engagement shoot taken in the Highline area of NYC.
"Kerri- the false eyelashes don't look false, just fabulous and realistic, which was the plan (we used Ardell's medium length individual lashes shown above in black, $4). And you get an A+ for effort and application! Can't wait to see the actual wedding pics next Spring."
So if you or a bride-to-be you know is getting married and needs a makeup artist, or just wants to be taught what colors and application techniques that are right for her, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for scheduling and bookings.
