As I sat waiting for my turn on my daughter’s wedding day for my hair and make up time in the chair, I carefully watched what the wedding makeup artist Manchester was doing. A young, pretty girl, she talked with each of the girls, got their ideas that incorporated what my daughter wanted for the look, then proceeded to apply their makeup. I thought the girls all looked beautiful. Then it was my turn. I don’t wear much makeup and told her that, sat back in the chair and relaxed since I had never had my makeup done before. She worked diligently and in 15 minutes I was ready, ready for the clown show! I don’t know why she thought a lot of eye shadow was going to help my look but, it didn’t. When I explained that women over a certain age don’t need the same look as twenty somethings, she apologized and off we went again. Thankfully this time, the look was more to my liking and fit me as the mother of the bride.
