I always love the final reveal when I hand my clients the mirror to see their makeup…I can tell so much by their reaction. After I finished the mother of the groom’s makeup today at a wedding, I handed her a mirror and her eyes slowly filled with tears. She then looked at me with her water filled eyes and said she had never looked so beautiful in her life. A little while later, I saw her looking at herself again in the mirror. She turned to me and said, “I always thought my mother and sister were beautiful but now for the first time I feel just as beautiful as them.” As tears rolled down her face, she gave me the biggest and tightest hug and whispered “thank you” in my ear. My goal and drive is to not only make my clients look beautiful but more importantly FEEL beautiful from within. That moment will stay with me forever and reminds me why I love what I do!
