Bride seeks hair and makeup guru for the big day
Who will be applying mascara to those almost-Mrs. teary eyes? (Clinique / May 16, 2012)
Through the entire process of planning and orchestrating, I can confidently say that I have put together a pretty stellar team of purveyors to ensure that everything is in tip-top shape. All that remains is one lone, albeit super important specialist.
I don’t have an inkling who is tasked with making my red-carpet-ready dreams a reality.
I have attended hair and makeup trials, torn dozens of examples from every bridal and fashion magazine under the sun — all to no avail. Considering how much of a perfectionist I am not, this sudden desire to be temporarily transformed into Giselle is majorly unfitting. In an attempt to regain some of the respect that has surely evaporated after these admissions, I fully acknowledge that this bout of obsessive behavior is sort of crazy. But in my defense, I have known brides to agonize for weeks over which of two nearly identical ribbons should adorn the bouquets. Frankly, I could give a crap about ecru versus ivory; I just want to know who will be applying that final coat of mascara to my teary, almost a Mrs. eyes.
And as I sit here, resources exhausted, envisioning my barefaced, ponytail-clad self saying “I do,” I need your help. Have you used or do you know of a hair and makeup artist capable of taking on this hefty order? Finish that much deserved eye roll and help a girl out!
