Its been a busy last few months, full of beautiful hair and makeup! Unfortunately, the downside of being so busy is that I haven't been able to share with you all the fun photo shoots, weddings and special hair and makeup events i have been blessed to help with.
But I am back! And I had the opportunity to work with two amazing women who competed at the NPCOKC (npcoklahoma.com) Grand Prix 2014 at Rose State College.
Lindsey and I had worked together once before but this was her first time competing in an event like this and I was honored she thought of me to help her be her very best that day. On top of that, I’d also get to help her friend and fellow competitor Amber. Hair & make up is an important aspect of the total presentation during body building competition such as these and this would be my very first time. I was both nervous and excited to be part of their journey.
I worked with Amber first. I was excited to work on Amber because I knew based on the inspiration photos she sent, that she was not afraid of color! Her suit was a gorgeous bright green and she wanted a fun pop of green in her eye shadow to compliment her look. And she rocked it! Lindsey, though a little hesitant on wearing a dramatic color, agreed on a pretty smokey eye, with a pop of pink on her lips. As it turns out, it was the perfect look to compliment her sparkly bikini.
I wasn’t able to see them on the big stage, but when I saw their photos a few days later, I was amazed! They looked incredible! I don’t know many people that could do what these women accomplished, their dedication, their drive, and their grace. I learned a little bit more about both of their journeys through Facebook posts, and I am so happy that I had the opportunity to have a tiny part in achieving their goals at the NPCOKC Grand Prix. Thank you Lindsey and Amber for being such sweet clients and choosing me to be your hair and makeup girl!
