Makeup Update

So my friend who did my first makeup trial is not coming to the wedding.
Basically, as she works at a spa in DC, her weekends are her bread and butter. So she was planning to buy a ticket to Cleveland and fly in for our Cleveland wedding Saturday morning JUST to do my makeup and then leave on a plane back to Washington that same afternoon. She would miss the ceremony and reception in order to make it back to the city for work that Sunday.

So...seeing as that 1)I am a reasonable person 2) I am not (yet) a bridezilla 3) The economy sucks and airfair is expensive and 4) there are other local makeup artists & 5) I did not love my makeup, I explained to my friend that it wasn't that serious for her to fly-in and spend all that $$ on a plane ticket JUST to do my wedding. Besides, she is helping plan my upcoming bachelorette party and I am more than grateful for that alone. And she is going to hook me up with her MAC pro card!

That said, I have booked a makeup artist in Cleveland,Jason Kelly FaceArt who was voted #1 artist in the city a year or so ago by Cleveland alternative weekly SCENE Magazine. He does the Cav's girls faces and has worked with many celebs. His work is awesome. In fact, my friend who was going to do my makeup knows of him and RAVED when she heard I had booked him.

"He will make you look like a different person (in a good way)," she said.

So I am excited! I have a trial with Jason in Cleveland at the end of next month--on the same day as my boudoir photos I decided to do at the last minute with 831 Photography. (more on those lata).

So, I have relieved a friend and found an awesome makeup guy all in one swoop. Check and check!

I have been thinking about doing the boudoir pics cuz my photographer couple does them also. I just don't know what to do with them after or what to put them in.
