On Saturday I went to Bedminster, NJ to do makeup for a New York model at the beautiful property at Trump National Golf Club
. It was a 2 hour drive from Connecticut but with my no sense of directions it took me an extra 45 mins. I got lost a few times, pulled up to the wrong house…don’t ask, and I had to battle with a deer on the road, lol. So my start was a little exciting.
Because both Vanessa & I had really busy schedule we didn’t get a chance to do a bridal consultation. Vanessa was pleased with my work from what she saw as well Shida, one of her bridesmaid speaking highly of me. We did talk over the phone, Vanessa shared with me what she wanted to look like. After finally meeting her I knew that I didn’t want her to look trendy but more pretty. Because she’s a model she have worn so many runway makeup looks so I decided to play with soft champagne, browns, and pinks. Keeping her makeup look timeless & classic. Of course I used lots of waterproof makeup & stay all day products since she was having the ceremony outdoor.
