A lovely guest post about some of my freelance work from my dear friend and beautiful bride, Sarah Cunningham :) You can contact me at LSilverStyle@gmail.com if you're interested in working with me on hair and makeup for a special occasion. Enjoy!
I grew up with LSilver and her Style – she and my sister have been best friends since they were five years old. In a family of three sisters, she is our fourth. Although I am four years older than her, a small difference that can seem big when you’re young, I have turned to her for fashion advice ever since I was a teen and she a pre-teen. I remember getting ready for my senior prom in our kitchen with a gaggle of my girlfriends, and Lindsey helping us all with the finishing touches.
That lifetime of sisterly style advice is why it was an unhesitating decision to have Lindsey do the makeup at my wedding. My bridesmaids and I were all so excited as we planned our dresses and our hair, but we didn’t even think about our makeup, knowing Lindsey would know best. On the day of the wedding, we got our hair done and our dresses ready, and piled into Lindsey’s hotel room. It was there that she spread out all her goods – her zillions of colors and brushes and blushes – an artist’s palette. We sat down on the bed and let her go to work.
Lindsey had known my sisters and me for her whole life. However, she had just that very moment met my soon-to-be sister-in-law, as well as our adorable little flower girls. She took one look at all of us – those she has known forever and those she had just met – and knew instantly how to make us up – the artist with her canvases.
Every one of us had our makeup perfectly done to accent our looks and fit our personalities. My sister Colleen had black eyeliner and the softest pink eye shadow; my sister Lizzie had nude tones that fit her natural-living personality; our beautiful flower girl had golden eyeliner that set her off in the ecstasy unique to a five-year-old; I had eyeliner that softly sparkled. We looked in the mirror and knew we were in the hands of the best. We zipped up our dresses and headed out to walk down that aisle.
If anyone is considering having LSilver do their wedding makeup and has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com. I cannot sing her praises enough and would love to discuss the details with anyone interested.
