I was going to use a team of ladies for my hair and make up that a friend of mine is using, but since I like to procrastinate and didn't contact them until now, we've been having a lot of trouble finding a time when we were all available to meet. Then Daniela1229 posted on the NYC Brides board that she has been training with a make up artist and is looking to get into the business herself. I got a really good vibe from her and decided to contact her and set up a trial.
Can I say that I have never been so happy with the way I looked after she worked her magic?! She was very professional, well organized, and she really listened to my suggestions. And when I wasn't sure what I wanted she stepped in with the perfect solutions.
Here is my "before" look
I asked Dani to emphasize my eyes with my all time favorite color - purple.
I was really happy with the make up that she chose for me. I look made up, but I don't look like a clown. The foundation blend she made was perfect - there is no visible difference between my face and the rest of my skin. Every time I've gotten my make up done before, the artist used a foundation that was too yellow. Not this time :)
I then asked her to try a different look on my eye - using brown eye shadow. We decided to leave one eye purple so that I can better see the difference. So yea, I've been walking around all day - outside too - with two different eye shadows!
I've been so happy with the look that I haven't stopped taking pictures of myself. I feel that she made me feel so pretty and so much more excited about my wedding day because I know I am in capable hands. I will also have Dani do the make up for my e-pics shoot in two weeks. I think I'll have her do the brown eye then and leave the purple for the wedding :)
