I had the privilege of doing the makeup of my dear, dear friend Lissa Lesaca-Moti on her wedding day early this year. Lissa showed up for her makeup trial with camera on hand to capture her look in all angles, and took pictures flash and without (to ensure that her foundation matched her perfectly). She took note of how long the makeup stayed and if there were any reactions with her skin—texting me throughout the day for up-to-the-minute report. Unlike other brides, however, she didn’t bring any photos of the look she wanted. Instead, she fully trusted me to give her the look which would fit her. Thank you, Lissa for this wonderful chance to work with you!
