05 Jan The Veil Of Grace Beauty Team Story
It’s hard to believe but I completed the Master Program at Make-up Designory (MUD) in Burbank, CA over 11 years ago. When I came back from makeup school I was renting a station at my previous salon. No one in the salon was doing makeup at that time so I asked the owner if I could begin to offer my new makeup services. He agreed and it was a match made in heaven. Not only was I growing my hair clientele at the time, but I was also perfecting the specialized beauty technique of airbrushing makeup. In the early days, I started out doing makeup for high school girls attending the local proms. Every year they would come back to me for hair and makeup services. I began to be referred to their friends and younger siblings as the years went by. As I began to refine my beauty craft, I slowly started to book bridal clients. Eventually I stumbled upon Wedding Wire and The Knot, which are the leading wedding vendor platforms for soon to be brides, and I put myself out there as they say. I created my first free vendor profile with what little portfolio pictures I had and sure enough local brides found me!
With my fellow artist’s talents growing year over year on the team, I knew I had to brand myself differently. It was time to transition from “I” to “We.” I decided to rebrand my business and remove my personal name. Looking back it was one of the best business decisions I’ve ever made. Of course adding artists to the team presents its own set of challenges. Nothing is ever perfect the first go around. Over the last four years, the Veil Of Grace Bridal Beauty Team has grown to 17 artists! We now offer services in San Diego, Orange County, Temecula, Los Angeles, Santa Clarita, Ventura County and Santa Barbara.
