Tissue's Makeup Trial!

Who: Tissue
What: Makeup Trial
When: Saturday, August 28

Congrats to Tissue and Jacob! I loved hearing their story of how they became a couple, and more importantly, how God had such a wonderful hand in it. He is awesome! I had a lot of fun with these two this past Saturday and can really see how much they love and care for each other. I hope God continues to do great things in both your lives and that you continue to live for Him!

Tissue wanted a very simple and neutral look...here's what we came up with!

Gail's Makeup Trial!

Who: Gail
What: Mother of Bride Makeup Trial
When: Saturday, August 14

Several Saturdays ago, Karen's mother came in for a MOB trial. I loved seeing the two dresses she brought in and had a lot of fun imagining the different color palettes we could try on Gail depending on which color dress she ended up choosing.

Here's what we came up with!

Debbie's Wedding!

Who: Debbie
When: Saturday, August 7
Where: Mountain View

I had been looking forward to Debbie's wedding for a while ever since I had met her last year during the trial. She is seriously one of the sweetest people I've ever met! We ended up having only 1 hour to do her makeup, but everything worked out nicely. The makeup session was pleasant and super enjoyable, largely due in part to Debbie's calmness throughout the short morning.

Sometimes, when there are multiple girls to do, we'll figure out a schedule where everyone takes turns, rotates, and switches. Here, Margaret and I are working on the other ladies while Debbie gets to relax.

Debbie, I had an awesome time with you and your wedding party! Thanks so much for allowing Honey and I to be a part of your special day. Wishing you and Brian the best as you start this new chapter in your lives. God bless!


Mel's Makeup Application [Bridesmaid]

Who: Mel
When: Saturday, Aug. 7
Where: Mountain View

We decided to work on Mel outside in the patio since the lighting was quite nice. It was so relaxing! We were perched outside on the 2nd floor in our own private area and it was the perfect setting for makeup and conversation.

I'm still amazed at how wonderful God is and how He works in different people's lives. It was so encouraging to meet Mel and hear about her positive attitude towards her current situation. What a Godly woman! We had some great laughs and I can see why Debbie and Mel get along so well with one another.

I'm loving the rollers :)

Blush and powder

Lips! (I don't know why I like this shot so much... maybe it's the calmness in Mel's expression)

Mel, thank you for allowing me to see God so clearly through you. I'm know that He has a great and wonderful plan for you!
