Sam wanted lots of drama for her wedding day makeup. We started off with a defined, but more natural look for her engagement photos. She then sent me some Pintrest pics of super dramatic purple smokey eye makeup. I was completely on board and layered in more than 8 colors on her eyes during her trial run.
Sam was very concerned about her breakouts, the texture and oiliness of her skin and whether the makeup would hold up throughout the wedding. I layered 4 different oil-controlling products on her face and then locked everything in with a water-proof setting spray. Sam sent me a photo taken after midnight with her makeup intact and said she never had to do a touch up.
Sam is absolutely stunning and I had so much fun using color on her and her wedding party! Here is what she had to say about her experience.
"When I came in for my first application with Betsey it was before my engagement pictures. I wanted something that looked polished and brought out my eyes. I LOVE a dramatic eye but to be honest, having someone else do my makeup for the first time before professional pictures was a little scary! So we kept it basic. Betsey was so professional and friendly through the entire process. She brought out my eyes like I wanted and I left feeling beautiful and ready for my engagement pictures!
When I came back for my wedding trial, I was totally on board with something more dramatic. I love the way purple makes my blue eyes pop and I had found some pictures from Pinterest that were full of drama. Betsey was super excited to use color which made me even more excited to see the result. The trial was amazing! I had never seen my eyes POP that much. She taught me to line my upper inner lash line and it's a trick I’ve been using ever since.
The day of my wedding I had stressed myself into a cold sore! I had been icing it all morning and when it came time for my makeup to be applied I not only felt very self conscious but was super nervous. I remembered how my trial went and tried to focus on that. When it was all done, I never felt or looked more beautiful! Betsey was able to cover my cold sore and no one even knew it was there. I expressed some shine concerns from the trial and she layered on makeup and powder accordingly.
I was so caught up in the day I never even thought to touch up my makeup. When my new husband and I arrived at our hotel well after midnight we had our picture taken. And my makeup was still flawless! As someone who usually has to blot the oil away a few times a day I was shocked! Betsey is a true professional and someone I have and will continue to recommend. "
