I had the most fun afternoon last Wednesday—I had my bridal portraits made! Now, I’m not sharing any sneak peeks of those until after the wedding, but I will share my hair and makeup.
I had my hair and makeup done at the place where I get my hair cut, Vski Salon in West Ashley. Chris usually cuts my hair, but Jennifer is their updo specialist, so I saw her for the first time for my trial.
I decided not to have a trial before my portraits because I didn’t want to pay for an extra updo and makeup application. Maybe it was risky, but we allowed enough wiggle room time that we could adjust things if we needed to. However, I did meet with Jennifer a couple of weeks in advance to show her my inspiration and make a hair and makeup timeline for the day of.
On the day of my portraits, I got my makeup done first. Yona (the makeup artist) asked me about my normal makeup routine and what I was looking for for my look. I really don’t normally wear much makeup—powder, under-eye concealer, and mascara only. I don’t even own foundation or eye shadow. She took that into consideration and made sure that my makeup wasn’t too heavy.
