New Dawn Bridal Makeup gets praise!

Hi All I just wanted to share this with you all. It's from a Bride I worked with this Summer. She spent some time putting into words her experience with me on her wedding day and I was so moved that she took the time to think about what effect adding this intimate service to her most special day had brought to her and her attendants. Thank you Christine for welcoming me into your life at such a precious moment - I will never forget this day and wish you and Chris many blessings in your married life. It was an honour. "Dear Melanie-Dawn, Thank you for sending the beautiful photos! I especially love the one of P and I, we look so serene-no sign of my pre-wedding nerves there! I’m so glad that L recommended you to me and that we discovered our VOC connection too. I was happy to introduce you to my family on my wedding day, and the whole experience became very personal and really added to my day. I have to say, it felt like a long time friend was doing my make up. I have been thoroughly spoiled with all of the expert care and support that came my way on my special day. Thank you for being a part of it. So, what can I say about my wonderful makeup experience? I really enjoyed the consultation process and was very happy that you listened carefully and let me stay with my own lashes and the browns that I usually wear on them. I think the final look was soft and natural but also very fresh. Of course the purples you chose for shadow also brought out the blue in my eyes! It’s hard to explain, but I really wanted a look that was not too far from the way I normally wear make up. This is thanks to my hair dresser who advised me to look “as much like ME as possible” at my wedding. My make up also had to be different enough from my every day look to catch Chris’ attention while adding beauty to the all-important wedding photos which we will look back on for years to come. That’s a tall order, and you achieved it with a mixture of confidence, care and skill. Your approach was very personal, careful and also thoughtful. Thanks to your package pricing, I was happy to be able to offer professional make up to my sister, who found it an absolute treat, as well as to P, who was originally very reserved about it due to her skin condition. In a short period of time, amid wedding day excitement, and jitters, as well as an unexpected need for more lighting, the sun did come out, eventually, you calmly catered to everyone’s personal needs and made them look stunning by bringing out their natural beauty. My flower girl, Kelsey, was so delighted that you included her in the line-up too. It was very sweet to watch you give her a sense of having “all” of the make-up put on, without actually making her look like a tiny beauty pageant contestant. She surely felt like a princess. The first time that you told me you would be available to me throughout the wedding day for touch-ups, I was truly amazed. Now that I’m married, I’m not so embarrassed to say that I’ve been a bridesmaid seven times. I have seen many different arrangements made for make up, ranging from the “Mary Kay night” where we all do our own make up on the day using shades suggested by the Mary Kay rep. to going to a make up artist who works along side the hairstylist the morning of the wedding. I had yet to experience “on site touch-ups”. One of the best moments for me, was the lip gloss line you had going as we entered the church! Not only did it put a big smile on my face, but I was reassured that I did indeed have a fresh look as I walked down the aisle. I’m sure Dawid will have some priceless pictures of the lip gloss line. It was so nice to have you there just before the professional photos too. I really didn’t touch my own lip gloss until I got to the reception! Overall, the experience was wonderful. I felt pampered, and it was nice not to have to worry about getting my make up right (I’ve heard of those bases you can put on to help keep make up looking fresh all day, but…where to start when looking for one??) and then keeping it touched up all day. I will be sure to recommend you to any of my friends who are getting married, as well as ALL of the parent reps at my school who are constantly looking for ways to liven up our fundraiser days and our little school musicals. Sincerely, Christine" I experienced an amazing feeling that day, seeing the love in the family and the sincerity of the whole day really made me sit back and realise why I do what I do and that not only am I providing a service to the Bride and her attendants, but I am also being given a gift - the gift of hope and acceptance and above all trust - and that's a huge responsibility that I undertake willingly and honestly in every aspect of my work with children and adults. Thank you so much Christine for your kind words! I feel truly blessed that I was a part of your very special day. It was a wonderful day. I really appreciate the time you must have taken over writing this. I feel overwhelmed by your kindness. It is amazing for me to have such a detailed endorsement and it makes me feel confident that I am doing what I am meant to do in this life. I hope to be of service again one day either as a makeup artist or face painter for a friend, parent or for the school. Your encouragement means more than you know. xxx

    So the fact is parents should be emphasized to give at least a hour to their child in order to get the best results from them and in order to make them efficient in their doings and in order to get the best output from them.
