August 23, 2009 From the instant I started email correspondance with Amber I knew we would have an amazing time working together. She was so well prepared and knew exactly what she wanted. During the run through she told me the story of how she and her husband first met, and she just knew he was the one, it was so sweet!!She looked absolutely GORGEOUS on her wedding day! Congrats Amber!!
From the Bride:
(This made me cry)
When I was planning my wedding I didn't think that I would have my makeup professionally done. The last thing that I wanted was to not look like myself or feel that the makeup was too heavy. As I thought about how I wanted to feel on my wedding day, I knew that I wanted my makeup to look flawless, light and natural. I had found Kaarin through a Craigslist ad and after speaking with her over the phone and looking at her blog, I knew that Kaarin was the right makeup artist for me. From our first point of contact Kaarin was upbeat and fun but made me feel calm at the same time. Kaarin is amazing at what she does and she knows what she is doing! When we did the final unveiling on the wedding day there was that "Awww" moment of feeling that everything is as it should be. The makeup was so light, it felt like I was not wearing anything at all. It stayed on all day and throughout the evening. I have never looked or felt more beautiful than on my wedding day. I know that I made the perfect decision in having Kaarin do my makeup and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She will rock your socks and beautify your face!!
Kaarin, I wanted to start by thanking you for being who you are. You are a gift to brides and to me! As you know I was hesitant about the typical "wedding makeup" and you ensured me that it would be light, natural and enhance my beauty. I am so glad that I chose you to be my makeup artist on such an important day in my life. I felt like a stunning, flawless bride. It was truly the most beautiful I have EVER felt in my life!!!! Whether in heat or through tears of joy the makeup stayed on. It was perfect! Having you there gave me peace and kept me at ease! Thank you for your ability to make anyone feel and look beautiful! You are amazing and your gift is a treasure!!! Love, Amber
Special thanks to Corey Hage for the beautiful pictures!
August 22, 2009 Woodmark Hotel, Kirkland, WA. Trinity and her bridesmaids/little sisters were so much fun to work with. Trinity is such a genuine woman, I was so happy to be with her on her big day!! She was absolutely relaxed and glowing.
I couldn't help but peek!!
A very special thanks once again to Joshua Gene Photography!!
August 21, 2009 Edgewater Hotel, Seattle, WA. I was approached by Kimber very last minute to see if I was available for her wedding day. She had decided that she didn't want to brave the unknown of the makeup counters at the mall, and shot me an email. I was already doing two weddings that weekend, but instantly clicked with Kimber and wanted to be a part of her big day! The instant I arrived at the Edgewater, I felt like I was part of the family. We had a blast getting ready :) Congrats to Kimber and Brian!!
A special thanks to Kip Beelman for the great photos!!
August 8, 2009 Bastyr Chapel, Seattle, WA. I had the honor of doing makeup for a coworker's bride to be (talk about pressure! ;) ). From the moment I met Christy I couldn't help but feel the excitement radiating from her and rubbing off on me! She was such a joy to spend time with!! Christy, her mom and sister really made my job easy :)
A SPECIAL thanks to Corey Hage from HageCreative!!
From the bride:
Kaarin did an amazing job with my makeup, as well as my mom's and sister's. She was fun and energetic and understood exactly what I wanted my makeup to look like. She even did my makeup trial with a broken foot and never complained! Kaarin was easy to work with, she always responded to my emails quickly and fully answered all of my questions. It was great to have her come to my house the morning of my wedding, so that I didn't have to worry about going somewhere else to get ready. Most important of all, my makeup looked fantastic and it stayed looking that way all day long. The product she used on my lips lasted through kissing, pictures, cake, and dinner. I would highly recommend Kaarin to other brides. I am very glad that I got to work with her!
