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!
