Ada contacted me almost a year ago, referred by the renowned photographer, Lida de Beer to do her hair and makeup for her big day. From the word go Ada, a pharmacist, just knew she wanted to look her absolute best for her big day when she came for the trail and even treated her sweet mother to a trail too.
The trail when down without a hitch. Ada does not usually wear a lot of makeup but told me to go full out for her wedding. We first concealed under her eyes and the airbrushed on her foundation. I use TEMPTU silicone based foundation nr 4. I airbrush all my brides now because of the flawless finish and longevity you get from this high performance foundation. I mean, it lasts up to 24 hours and is waterproof !!
The finish was perfect and flawless. Ada has the most beautiful green eyes and I really wanted to make them pop with some of my favourite eye shadows from MAC COSMETICS. I am possibly MAC’s biggest fan. Ada has the longest lashes known to mankind and with a few sweeps of the mascara wand, she was transformed into a beautiful princess. It was then onto her hair, she wanted a very popular half up half down style and once I curled and pinned her hair, we decided that she needed more hair. Hairpieces can transform the dullest head of hair into a beautiful celebrity coif.
The wedding day arrived with great excitement for me. Ada was blessed with beautiful weather and two gorgeous bridesmaids. These girls were a treat and so nice to transform but oh dear, Ada was treated to a facial, a couple of days before the wedding and had a reaction!!! Her face was bright red from the product used and her and her mom’s concern naturally was that I would not be able to cover or hide the red. I assured her, very confidently that I can fix anything.
It all went down perfectly and Ada looked breath taking. What was really nice was her extreme eye for detail which was carried out with great perfection in every aspect of the wedding. When I saw Ada the following day she thanks me so much and said everybody commented on how perfect her skin looked! A huge compliment.
I wish Ada and Johann all the best for the future!
