Wedding days have the potential to be so stressful... to warp the beauty of that day. Using Keegan for our makeup was one of the decisions that made my day so stress free, so fun, and so carefree. Keegan arrived on time and was set up and ready...
to go early, even. Every girl that sat in her chair left feeling like THEMSELVES. She was tuned in to the girls's preferences, styles, and personalities. We all felt like she absolutely nailed it out of the park. Here are a few reasons why I would recommend strongly, hiring Keegan for your special day.
HER SKILL: My face looked like MY FACE -- not like a cake. I have freckles, and love them. Keegan's talent was evident in the fact that my freckles were still visible, but I was glammed up with a full face of makeup! Her product application was unique to everyone's facial structure, and custom for that person, specifically. While she was able to get her job done quickly, it never felt like she was rushing.
HER PERSONALITY AND DEMEANOR: I didn't feel like I had to make small talk. I felt like I could have sat and talked with Keegan all day. She felt like a friend, and I certainly consider her one now. She was sure to ask each girl specific questions to ensure that she was truly doing their personality justice.
GLAM BUT NATURAL: We all felt like QUEENS, but more importantly, we felt like ourselves. Even the fake eyelashes simply added fullness, as averse to fairness. Her contours complemented natural facial features, instead of trying to imprint shadows that don't exist. Everyone's makeup looked so elegant -- wasn't too much, but certainly was enough.
HER PRODUCT CHOICE: Whatever magic products Keegan used, they were phenomenal. The brands she uses blend well together upon application, and have compatible and correlated shades. It all looked cohesive. Additionally, the product STAYED ON ALL NIGHT. I cried, laughed, sweat (90 degrees on the wedding day) and nothing budged. The makeup came off with regular cetaphil face wash at around midnight with light scrubbing (regular face routine). Otherwise, nothing smeared, budged, or smudged. My makeup was applied at around 8:00 a.m., and the reception lasted well past midnight... again -- NOTHING BUDGED. It was a miracle.
MY SKIN'S RESPONSE: I have SUCH sensitive skin. I didn't voice this to Keegan, as I figured a small breakout would be worth having my makeup done on my wedding day. However, as sensitive as my skin is, I didn't get a breakout! My skin responded really well to the product and method of application. This is certainly a testament to Keegan's commitment to caring for your face in the brushes and applicators she uses.
PROFESSIONALISM: While Keegan is warm, and easy to be around, she is also a professional. All contacts I had with her were incredibly efficient and clear. She's on time, and organized.
PAYMENT: One of the most stressful parts of a wedding has to be the finances. The fact that you can take care of paying for Keegan's services (tip included) ALL PRIOR TO THE WEDDING DAY, is a HUGE bonus. It was so nice not to have to worry about that the day of. The convenience of prior payment cannot be overstated.
