Well, I've done it! I am officially back in the saddle of the beauty & wedding industry. If you read my first ever blog, you'll know that I was adamant that I was retired from this profession. My sister and one of my old clients made me see things in a new light, and I can honestly say it's been a revelation to me! I feel inspired and energised like I haven't been in years. Yes there are masses of competition now and I often get doubts, but I know I'm good at my job and I just need to believe and get out there again!
We have our first wedding fair booked at the end of February, and I'm looking forward to meeting all the newly engaged couples. It's amazing how the universe seems to put things in my path now I've decided this is what I want to do. From deciding to do this in December 2018 until now, We've created a website, booked onto wedding fairs, got clients booked in for treatments, and we also have an amazing idea that we are introducing in the Summer of 2019. I will be updating that as and when we get the go ahead. For now it's top secret lol!
So I've made the commitment, I've ordered business cards, leaflets, goody bags etc. I've also ordered some new equipment and make up. Including the gorgeous Too Faced Pretty Rich palette. It's so pretty, and of course I had to test it out on me first!
I must admit I forgot how expensive starting a business is. This time I have no savings or a loan to help us. Crystal and I are doing it on our own, step by step, and week by week. Unfortunately for me Too Faced do not offer Make up Artists a discount as yet. But as I adore the brand, and they are completely cruelty free, I will use them in my treatments. I also use Huda Beauty, Makeup Revolution and Anastasia Beverley Hills (in case you were wondering) I offer spa treatments from our home salon too. All the products use organic ingredients and I make them up myself fresh for each treatment. See our main page for more details www.crystellebelleweddings.com/book-online
I will post all the pictures from our wedding fair here and on our Instagram account.
