Wedding Season: Get to Work

Spring is here!!!

Spring and Summer are very busy seasons for makeup artists and photographers.  The weather is nice, prom is around the corner, outdoor weddings and parties start filling up your calendar.   Ahhh, I can speak for myself and the majority of Ohioians when I say it's great to see the sun and I definitely don't miss the winter's grey.

Being wedding (and event) season it's important to book appointments with your artists early.  When I was at the counter we started booking for prom at least a month in advance and I know that every counter was a madhouse on those weekends.  Whether you have a personal artist that comes to your house or you trust someone at Clinique to slap on a little blush that probably wont stay put, reserve your spot before someone else does. 

NOT what you're going for...
Women want to look great for all types of occasions so let me put it this way - your friend's wedding is on June 19th.  An artist is going to do the bride and bridesmaids.  But the mother of the bride, mother of the groom, any of the guests, the wedding band, photographer, jealous sister of the groom who's older and still not married (you get the point)...  EVERYONE can come up with an excuse to have someone else make them look incredible and, before you know it, 2pm-6pm is booked at every makeup counter from Dayton to Columbus.  So now your left at Elder Beerman hoping to God that Miss Erma can draw your brows on better than her own.

Not ok.

POINT - book early.  Make it as non-stressful as you can.  If you know an artist that is willing to travel or have a favorite at a good counter definitely go that route.  And I say good counter because remember this - when you work at Estee Lauder, you can only use Lauder products.  Ask any freelance artist and they will tell you that a great kit includes pieces and parts from allllll different lines.

So happy wedding season.  Happy prom season.  Good luck, stay pretty, and keep it classy.
