My baby girl Vivian who runs my world- and I love every minute of it with her!!
Now I wouldn't call myself a huge crazy feminist, but I certainly do love being a female. I want to instill in my own daughter that she can be a strong person with strong opinions but to enjoy the softer side of being a lady. We CAN be all things right?? Who says you can't rule the world while wearing high heels and a fabulous bright lipstick?!
Since my job mainly deals with women (I mean, I have done guy-liner ONCE in the past and put the occasional concealer on a father of the bride) I thoroughly enjoy getting to meet and work with a variety of female personalities. So I thought I would just post some pictures of some great ladies I've worked with lately at a few weddings I've had the pleasure of being the makeup artist for.
This shows how much fun I have with my clients-
wish I could remember what this bridesmaid had me in stitches about!
I've met women who are mothers like myself (one of the toughest jobs in the world in my opinion, but very rewarding!), to high profile lawyers and nurses (where would we be without nurses?? we'd all stay sick!). Girls do run this world according to all the fab ladies I've met!! The variety of women that I get to meet is amazing, and the fact that I'm in their faces working in their personal space, it allows me to find out a lot about them. I always like a lot of dialogue when I'm working.
The first group of pics are of a wedding I was hired to do in beautiful St. Simons Island, GA. The weather couldn't have been better for this wedding and the whole entire bridal party was a joy to work with. And I worked with a record number of faces, all by myself, 14 faces in one bridal party!! I stood in one spot from 8am until 4pm, and loved every minute of it. We were in the bride's parents house right near the beach, with the most incredible natural light lit room a makeup artist could ask for. Yes it's the little things like natural light and good windows that make me smile when working;-)
Me with the fabulous and beautiful bride Ashley.
She was glowing from the inside out and was the most relaxed bride, EVER!!!
This is 9 of the 14 I worked with, but bc there are so many of them, I couldn't get close ups of everyone!
3 lovely bridesmaids/ladies I worked with! I hope these big smiles mean they liked their makeup!
The fabulous MOB who was just radiant and so gracious to allow me in her home!
Working on bronzer around the perimeter of the face. The best place to apply it!
I also got to work with another wedding party where I worked with a bride and her beautiful mother. I absolutely love meeting MOB's because they are such an important part of the bride and who she has become. This duo was no different. They were a joy to work with and showed such a strong mother daughter bond. And they were super cool with me doing before and afters which are always fun to see the transformation!
Me with the happy and beautiful bride!!
MOB Kathy BEFORE.
She was concerned about wearing any blush at all, but I convinced her
it was so necessary and that blush is a woman's best friend. She ended up loving her peach blush!
The mother daughter duo after their hair and makeup was complete!
Big thanks to Republic Salon of Athens for allowing me into their business to do her makeup.
They are the masters at bridal updo's and hair do's in general!
I love love getting the opportunity to meet every single woman I come into contact with and am always impressed with what these women do. And after working with these most recent bridal parties, I realize that... girls CAN run the world!!
