(Note to self: Grow an extra foot taller)
This past weekend I had the opportunity to work on a wedding with the most amazing bridal party. Seriously, everyone was so nice that it was sickening - I've never felt so much warmth and just genuwine "niceness" (is that a word...probably not) from so many people. Everyone was just so excited for the bride and just appreciated the fact that they were able to spend their morning and afternoon getting pampered by hair and makeup people. No Brideszilla. No Mom-zillas (her mom was the cutest thing by the way) & all the bridesmaid were just the sweetest girls on the planet. I had such a great time! On this particular job, as the Assistant Makeup Artist my job was to prep the skin (clean, tone and moisturize) and then apply the Airbrush Foundation. I would then pass them over to Nikol who would transform them with eyeshadow, lashes, blush, etc. It was a constant rotation of girls - hair, prep, makeup! This weekend I have the pleasure of working on another wedding with my boss Nikol who has also asked me to help her with Day of Coordination (she's just launched an event planning company). I'm very excited a get my feet wet in the area of event planning and there's no better way of doing it than with someone who is willing to show you the ropes, give you words of encouragement and has a genuwine interest in you as a person.
