Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of attending a seminar where I got to listen to the incredible Nikoletta Skarlatos talk about being a Makeup Artist is the motion picture industry.  Nikoletta has an impressive resume that include The Pirates of the Caribbean, The Amazing Spider-man, Thor, Angels & Demons and the hugely successful Hunger Games.  She is currently filming Mockingjay here in Atlanta which is the third film in the Hunger Games Series.

As a professional in the makeup industry, if I want to go to trade shows such as the IMATS or The Makeup Show, I usually have to travel to Los Angeles or Orlando to see them.  These shows are in a few other cities in the country but nowhere near Atlanta.  Well, to all my artists out there, the wait is over!  Atlanta is getting their very own trade show!  What news could make this better?  It's within a minute of my apartment!  Tickets are on sale now so make sure to check it out!

Wedding Day Glow...Yes or No?

tanning-beds

A common practice for the soon to be Bride (and some grooms) is getting that healthy wedding day glow.  Everyone looks better with a little extra color.  I repeat...a little extra color.  I will give you tips on how to get that beautiful bronze you desire without having the "muddy" or "pumpkin" look.

Do your research before you spray.  The more pale you are, the more likely you are to get that "pumpkin" look.  Not cute.  As I have said before, my favorite system is Versa Spa.  I'm very pale and Versa will always turn me a nice golden color without that pumpkinesque look.  Another great option is to have an actual person spray you.  There are great companies you can hire that will bring a pop up booth to your house or you can go to tanning salons where this service is offered.

Also, make sure you know how the system works before you get in!  You don't want a "Ross" situation.

For step by step instructions on how to spray tan, read our previous post To Spray or Not To Spray...Is It Really A Question?

If you prefer to get your color in a tanning bed, this is an option with little prep time and a good dose of Vitamin D.  Your tan will be more natural and last longer.

But...BEWARE OF:

A Winter Bride

A few weeks ago I was able to work with my amazing bride, Lindsay.  Between her classic features and her FAB photographer Alecia Lauren, I could not wait to get a sneak peek of her wedding photos.  Alecia Lauren Photography posted a few teasers on her Facebook which I am so excited to share. 559936_10151525998350763_269375122_n

To prove that a girl will go above and beyond to get the perfect picture on her wedding day, if you look closely you can see that it is windy and snowing in this picture.  Lindsay is a trooper!599115_10151525998570763_1308165560_n

Amanda was GREAT as my wedding makeup artist! She was always quick to respond, and she is an absolute delight...so sweet and flexible...she just wants to make sure you're happy! I met with her a few months prior to my wedding for my trial, and we worked out a plan for the big day (she did a chart and took pictures). I even sent her some additional feedback later after spending a day in my makeup following the trial, and she made sure that I would love everything about it...which I did!

On the afternoon of my wedding, Amanda also ended up doing makeup for my mom and my husband's mom, and they both looked wonderful. I can't thank Amanda enough for her kindness and professionalism through the whole process...it can be a stressful chain of events leading up to your wedding, but she always made me feel at ease, and I'd definitely recommend her to others!
