Hello beautifuls cool.gif

I have been meaning to post this all week but I wanted to let everyone know I got the makeup artist I used for my wedding to do my makeup and hair for a party at New Years Eve and I made the pleasant discovery that:

(1) She has dropped her price for makeup;
(2) She does hair just as good as my hairdresser (she emulated my wedding hair style perfectly and everyone was like 'Hey, you had your hair like that when you got married'); and
(3)She now comes to your house or hairdresser or whatever.

You see she was just doing fashion and television makeup when I got married, hence the higher prices but now she is doing more weddings because she reckons the environment is better tongue.gif

She can do any style and uses only tip top products but I'd say her makeup is very fresh and modern.

Here's a pic of me wearing her makeup after one of my trials. Her fake lashes are to die for:

Karissa trial

And of course you can see in my wedding pics that the makeup photographs very naturally:Pics

If anyone would like more details just PM me or have a look at her website. The address consists soley of her name (karissa) and it is a .com.au domain wink.gif

I hope I don't sound really weird plugging my makeup artist so fervently- I did the same for my photographer, the reception venue and the florist I used- I guess when you get really good work at a good price you just want to spread the word...I remember how daunting it was for me, trying to pick from all these vendors I had never even heard of before.

Siobhan thank you so much for sharing - It is very daunting trying to pick people to do make up, hair, photography etc - So your advise is totally appreciated!!! smile.gif

I love your hair and make!! But you are just beautiful anyway!!

Does she work on her own? Also, as my wedding is on the Gold coast do you think she would travel?

Hi Leesa smile.gif

Karissa is used to travelling because her work for the fashion industry takes her interstate a bit and so the GC would definitely pose no problem for her.

As far as I know she works on her own, but when I got married she had no problem doing the 3 of us in no time at all.

I just can't believe I didn't know how good she was with hair until recently. You should have seen the sexy loose waves she did on my friend!
