The Bride and The Braves

As an Atlanta native and huge Braves fan, I immediately said "YES" when Lauren (a beautiful bride-to-be) asked me to work her wedding at Turner Field.  The Ted.  Home of the Braves...Hellooo! Yes. When I arrived to the stadium and walked up to the doors of the 755 Club where I would be working, it took everything in me not to do a Mary Tyler Moore spin and throw my nonexistent hat in the air.

And The Reviews Are In!

I just received three new reviews on Wedding Wire for my on-location Makeup Artistry.  Check out what my brides had to say!

5.0/5.0
Amanda is amazing! I could not have asked for a better makeup artist. Her product is wonderful and stayed on all night. My face is very sensitive and I had no issues with the makeup. Her price is very reasonable and it was SO helpful that she could come to me. Her makeup enhances the features you want and hides what you don't while keeping you very natural. My new husband even commented on that. She is always on time or early and her communication is fantastic. She is willing to work around your schedule. She has a great attitude and is very easy to get along with. She listens to your wants and ensures that you are satisfied. I loved working with her and would 110% recommend her!

Amanda was amazing! She came to me for the trial run and the wedding day and was very flexible with scheduling. She also listened to exactly what I wanted and I loved my makeup!!

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!

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

Pretty Stylish for Style Me Pretty

style me pretty One of the rewards of being a makeup artist is building relationships with my clients and staying in touch after my work is done.  One of my brides from this past year, Liz, has been absolutely amazing with writing reviews and recommending "Lace On-Location."  Recently, Liz's wedding was picked by the very popular wedding blog, Style Me Pretty, who featured her event by blogging it, posting pictures and crediting all of the vendors that she hand-picked for the biggest day of her life.  Being that this is a very trusted blog for brides everywhere, I was overjoyed to find out Liz made the cut!  To take a look at her Style Me Pretty article, click here.  Also, learn more about my work with Liz in a past blog post by clicking here!

Just A Quick Peek

On top of all of the holiday rush, my ambitious self decided to launch a new campaign for Lace Cosmetics, remake/relaunch our website, revamp our blog and introduce a new category to our brand...all before Christmas.  Well, I'm almost there.  All of the new changes will go live before the end of this week (I will keep you updated).  I am so excited to share the new look for Lace with all of you. Here is a quick sneak peek into our photo shoot for the new campaign:

Natural Beauty

In October, I worked with a very sweet bride named Lizz.  She was seeking a Makeup Artist that would give her a natural and fresh look.  With her wedding date quickly approaching, we did the trial run just 2 days before and perfected her look.

On the actual wedding day, I had a BLAST working with Lizz's wedding party and running into a few people that I knew along the way.  There was such a relaxed and easy going atmosphere in the brides room of the church that made my job feel so easy.

Here are a few pictures that Lizz sent me:

Lizz left this amazing review on TheKnot.Com and WeddingWire.Com:

Amanda was the perfect makeup artist for my wedding in October. Not only was I thrilled with how my makeup looked, but all five of my bridesmaids and my mom were ecstatic about their makeup, too! My makeup trial appointment was not only extremely helpful (as I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to makeup), but it was fun and relaxing – just what I needed the week before my wedding! As someone who does not usually wear makeup, I was so pleased that she enhanced my features instead of making me look and feel like a completely different person on my wedding day. I can’t tell you how nice it was to have her meet us on location. It was one less thing to worry about the morning of our wedding and made a big difference! Amanda played a huge part in helping me look stunning for the most important day in my life. I couldn't be happier! Thank you, Amanda!

Bride Beautiful

A few weeks ago, I had a chance to work with a fabulous bride who was looking for a last minute makeup artist.  I was able to run over to her mom's house for the trial run and then work her wedding a few weeks later.  I am so happy that I got to work her wedding because, after seeing these pictures, she is probably one of the most beautiful brides I have worked with.  The photos are stunning, her bridesmaids were hilarious/beautiful, and her mother was beyond sweet.  Also, I absolutely LOVED the photographer.  Make a point to check out her website LaurenRaePhoto.Com!

Lastly, here is the awesome review that I received on The Knot from a wonderful bride of mine.

WONDERFUL    posted 11/12/2012

Amanda did my make-up, my mother's and three of my bridesmaids. The make-up looked just like the trial - natural, light and beautiful, just like I requested. She helped me pick the eye make-up and lip stick colors based on my personality and the wedding colors. She even came to my house to do the trial! On the day of the wedding, she accommodated my schedule, moving with my bridal party from our hotel suite to our venue as we were getting ready. Because she is so easy to talk to, she felt like part of the bridal party. We were ready on time for pictures and everyone looked marvelous!!!!

Yesterday was such a fun day.  I went to Demure for the filming of a new reality show here in Atlanta.  I was so excited to learn that the lovely lady the show is based around attended Lace Cosmetics Launch Party!  Small world/city.  She was so kind and took a moment to mention Lace during filming.  Thank You, K!  Here is a snapshot I took.
After they wrapped, I got an email from Wedding Wire which informed me that I had a new Review.

Amazing Amanda! I can't say enough great things about her. My original makeup artist that I'd had booked for 7 months cancelled on me about 3 weeks before the wedding. I got in touch with Amanda through email and her response was super quick. We sheduled a trial run for a few days later. She even came to me at my Mom's house. My trial makeup was gorgeous!! We booked her on the spot! Wedding day --- Amanda was on time, and ready to go! In addition to me, she did the makeup for my 2 bridesmaids and my mom. It was an evening wedding and very formal so I wanted a pretty dramatic look. She worked with each girl to achieve their best look, and I must say everyone looked stunning! My makeup was even better than the trial! I couldn't have been more pleased. I got so many compliments on my makeup that night! Amanda was fun, and easy going. I will definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone in need of makeup! P.S. GET THE LASHES!! They are worth it! We all got them and they photograph beautifully and look natural.
I love my work and I love my brides :)  Blessed.

A Party For You

A common thing I hear from clients is "Can you come to my house and do my makeup every day?"  Well, my friend Leah and I got to thinking.  We could...or we could just teach you.  We decided to join forces and start doing house parties.  Women invite us over and for a very reasonable price, we show each woman how to apply their makeup.  If you do not know what brand or colors to wear, we can help with that.  If you have makeup at home and do not know how to apply it, we can help with that.  Pretty simple, huh?  Here are a few pictures from our party this past weekend. 

If you would like more information about having a party at your house, please contact us at amanda@lacecosmetics.com or leah@lacecosmetics.com.
