Your face is your for­tune, don’t go for cheap op­tion

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Spring has sprung and the lighter nights bring a feel­ing of tran­quil­lity to evenings - but as a make up artist, it’s the calm be­fore the storm.

Wed­ding sea­son is about to swing into ac­tion. It is busy and hec­tic ... and I love it!

Hav­ing worked in the wed­ding in­dus­try for many years, I thought I would share a few pearls of wis­dom with you when it comes to en­sur­ing you look your best on the big day.

And one of the most im­por­tant steps you should take is to en­sure you se­lect an ex­pe­ri­enced artist.

You will al­ways find the cheaper op­tion, but cheaper is usu­ally not best, trust me.

Here are a few rea­sons why I rec­om­mend you al­ways go with an ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sional.

We will de­liver ex­actly re­sults you want, while al­ways re­main­ing calm, con­fi­dent and in con­trol in what can some­times be a very stress­ful en­vi­ron­ment.

We are 100 per cent re­li­able. Ev­ery­one gets sick from time to time but the se­ri­ous pro­fes­sion­als will still turn up. We suf­fer in si­lence be­cause we are ded­i­cated. On the very, very rare oc­ca­sion it is some­thing se­ri­ous, we will al­ways en­sure there is a con­tin­gency plan.

Things can go wrong, mis­takes hap­pen- we can cope! I once had a bri­dal party de­layed two hours at the hair­dresser. Did I panic, stress or say there wasn’t enough time left? NO, I just got them ready in time, keep­ing ev­ery­one calm in the process.

We have seen it all! I have coaxed a cry­ing bride from her bed­room when the stress got too much, sewn a brides­maid into her torn dress, had some­one pass out in my arms... the list goes on. I can han­dle it. It’s all in a day’s work.

It is work though and we take it very se­ri­ously. It’s not a hobby! Our on­go­ing train­ing, kit and ex­penses are not cheap and our high stan­dards have a slightly higher price tag.

I’m of­ten asked why bri­dal ser­vices are more ex­pen­sive and all of the above is the rea­son why. We re­ally pro­vide the best pro­fes­sional ser­vice. The re­spon­si­bil­ity that goes with work­ing a wed­ding is huge, but we de­liver.

Face­book pages from very in­ex­pe­ri­enced peo­ple of­fer­ing bri­dal ser­vices have been pop­ping up ev­ery­where so, some­one fi­nally took a stand - the Scot­tish Wed­ding As­so­ci­a­tion. And I’m de­lighted they have. A non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion, they pro­mote ex­cep­tional and eth­i­cal stan­dards in or­der to in­spire cus­tomer con­fi­dence in the wed­ding in­dus­try.

Mem­bers must un­dergo a vet­ting process prior to join­ing and must ad­here to a strict Code of Prac­tice.

This is long over­due in the busi­ness and I’m de­lighted to be part of it. Se­lect a SWA mem­ber to en­sure you are in ca­pa­ble hands.

Have a look at the amaz­ing sup­pli­ers they have so far www. scot­tish­wed­din­gas­so­ci­a­

U got the look An ex­pe­ri­enced artist will al­ways leave you look­ing your best
