The new bumpin’ Beyonce hit track, “Run The World (Girls)” that she just performed on the Billboard Music Awards tonight has inspired my blog title for the day!! You can check out her new song by clicking this link to the actual BBMA site- it is a very different sound from Mrs. Beyonce than we’ve heard in the past, but I like the futuristic sound!!
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.
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;-)
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!!
