Favorite Wedding Movie: My Best Friends Wedding was my favorite wedding movie growing up because my sister loved it and I loved anything that she loved… but Father of the Bride is probably my absolute favorite, I will still watch it and love it.
Makeup Item can’t live without: The older I get the more I use, haha! I probably can’t choose just one! Probably safe to say Mascara or Eyeliner.
Guilty Pleasure: VINO 🙂
How many times have you been a bridesmaid? I think 5? When my brother gets married next year it will be 6. Feels like a lot more though since I’m always around bridal parties getting them ready and having fun hanging out. Sometimes I wish I could just throw a dress on and stay laughing with them!
Dream wedding gown: Hmm.. Well, I’ve done the wedding dress shopping experience two separate times in my life (what can I say? I wanted to be a bride REALLY bad…) and anything that you feel confident in is the way to go. I have no idea what that means for me.
Have you ever had a Beauty Disaster? I can’t recall anything too serious, thank the Lord. However, I did use to carry a glass jar of glitter in my case for little girls to put on for fun, and that broke. I realized during a trial last summer and my poor bride had to overlook the glitter over EVERYTHING (my makeup brushes were coated) to see if she liked her wedding day look. I promised the glitter wasn’t apart of her bridal look and luckily I was able to rid the glitter off of everything prior to her wedding day 🙂
Why did you choose to be a makeup artist? I was in high school actually when I decided to go to school and get my license, and beginning of my senior year I took night classes to get it. I was always very driven, and I wanted to do something that I loved! I had no idea where it would take me, and I couldn’t have found a better home than with ADB! I’ve known Amie most of my life and the rest of the girls I’d probably never have crossed paths with, but I’m so glad I have <3.
