We Are So Thankful For Our Clients!

Today, and every day, we are thankful for our clients. We have the opportunity to work with the most amazing people! We love getting to know them, exchanging stories and experiences, while making them look and feel incredible.

We work with a variety of clients, doing hair and makeup for corporate headshots, maternity photos, photo shoots as well as brides and bridal parties. 

Corporate headshots are what is presented to the business world. Sometimes it is difficult to discern what makeup is appropriate to enhance your features, but not look overdone or unprofessional. Luckily we have experience, and enjoy helping our clients look great for their head shots so that they can feel confident with them. 

Maternity photos are so special to be involved with, expecting mothers have such a glow and we love being a part of capturing those feelings and emotions for our clients that are mothers-to-be. 

Magazine photo shoots are so much fun to be a part of! It is a great way to be creative and capture a story in photos. To see our post on a recent photo shoot that we were a part of, click here

Of course, we always love being a part of a wedding. We are so honored to be a part of such a monumental and memorable day. The pre-wedding bridal party buzz is always a fun atmosphere, and the moment when the bride is ready to put on her dress and see herself put together still gives us butterflies! 

To our past clients of all varieties and to potential/ future clients. We want to say thank you! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your life and important moments, thank you for allowing us to do what we love and thank you for being so amazing!

MYD Spends A Week Giving Thanks!

Welcome to Makeup for Your Day’s Thanksgiving countdown, where we will have daily posts to let you know what we are thankful for!

Today we are thankful for artistry and design. We are so lucky to be in such a creative field where boundaries are constantly being tested and redefined. There are so many innovative new products and techniques that are so incredible, it keeps us constantly on our feet and excited about what will come next. 
One such innovative product that we are thankful for is our Kett Airbrush Machine! For those of you who haven’t read our blog before, check out our rave review of the Kett Airbrush Machine and why it is amazing for brides here, and check out our amazing and extensive staff training day blog post here. Any product that gives us the ability to make our clients look completely flawless we are definitely thankful for!
Other makeup products that we are thankful for are lip stains. When it is done right (not drying or flakey with good color payoff and the ability to last for hours) they are amazing products. When they aren’t done well it is a huge disappointment.  This is why we are thankful for the Chanel Lip Stains. These are truly heaven-sent to make sure that everyone can have beautifully colored and moisturized lips!
Another makeup innovation that we are thankful for is eyelash extensions. From enhancing your natural lashes, to a darker, thicker and more defined lash look – the possibilities are endless. Click here to read more about the training, procedure and payoff of amazing eyelash extensions. We love that they can last 4-5 weeks. Beach vacation, holiday party, get togethers, weddings… you name it, they are perfect for that little extra something. Plus, not having to apply mascara in the morning does lend more time for beauty sleep with the added bonus of waking up and looking incredible!
We can’t forget the hair products that we are thankful for! We love Kenra hair products. One of the best products is their Volume Hairspray. It is the 8-time winner for Best Hairspray at the Stylist Choice Awards, including 2012. You cannot go wrong with this hairspray!

We are also thankful for Biolage products because they cater to a diverse range of hair issues and are top quality products. They have great products for colored hair, dry hair, dull hair and they also have a line specifically for scalp care. Whatever hair need you have, Biolage will have a product that will help. 

Our last product that we are thankful for today is a hair tool. Marcel curling irons are amazing. They come in a variety of barrel sizes and create the perfect curl! Curls will never go out of style. They are a completely feminine and sexy look perfect for all hair types and lengths.

Stay tuned for our daily Thanksgiving posts this week where you will get more product recommendations and some info on our talented team of artists and stylists!

Kett Cosmetics Airbrush Makeup Training at MFD!

A couple Sunday’s ago, the makeup artistry team of Make Up For Your Day gathered in the studio for some Bruegger’s bagels and coffee before kicking off a comprehensive 8-hour airbrush makeup training session. Our team had the amazing opportunity to train with a Kett Cosmetics Representative from Toronto, Canada. If you have never heard of Kett Cosmetics, check out our first post on it here. ( The Magic of Kett Cosmetics ).

With over 9 years in the industry, Joanne Parks demonstrated many useful airbrush techniques for the makeup artistry team such as flawless foundation for all skin tones, flattering blush and contouring for all face shapes, eyeshadow application for all eye types and also tattoo coverage techniques. The team then got to practice under Joanne’s watchful and instructive eye.

We were soaking in all of the knowledge we could, asking a multitude of questions throughout the day and the various demonstrations. We learned that patience and practice is key in perfecting these newly learned techniques – and that the experience and expertise of this Kett Cosmetics makeup artist was priceless!

Tattoos take time…but eventually they’re all gone and completely WATERPROOF!

Thank you to Joanne Parks for flying in from Toronto, Canada for our training session. We all learned so much and we really appreciate your time and sharing your insider tips and tricks!  Our entire makeup artistry team is looking forward to sharing our new techniques and using them to continually make our brides look flawless, photo-ready and gorgeous on their wedding day!
