Mother’s Makeup


By Nancy Gorman, owner of Makeup by Nancy

The wedding day has arrived, and while you knew it would eventually, you can’t help but feel both happy and sad. The sadness is because your baby is all grown up and the happiness is in knowing they have found their one true love.

The wedding planning is a whirlwind and everything is much different than when you planned your own. For example, now everyone gets ready together – makeup artists and hair stylist are brought in to ensure everyone looks their best. Now, your nerves kick in – what if you never wear makeup? What if it looks terrible? What if no one recognizes you or worse, thinks you may end up looking like Mimi from the Drew Carey Show? You can be as natural or as glam as you want to be!

Rest assured moms; you can have beautiful makeup and still look you. Speak with your makeup artist about your concerns, and if possible have a photo of a look you like and would be comfortable in. The professionals want you to feel like your very best self as you watch your baby say “I do.” Don’t worry, mom, the mascara is waterproof…
