Behind the Scenes: SFU student film project

Filed under: Behind the Scenes — Tags: , , — Administrator @ 11:40 pm

Recently we were approached by a group of SFU film students who wanted to use our shop as the setting for a short film they were doing. Being the first request of its kind, we were curious and interested, and of course, said yes! These students are passionate, talented, and so gracious, so it was an absolute pleasure working with them. Daisy was also able to work her makeup magic on Maggie, who looked so pretty as a pretend bride-to-be. (Just wait until she gets married for real!)

Meet Kevin, Peter, Tommy, Carter and Maggie:

Keeping it fresh: Makeup by Daisy

At Ora Wedding, we know how important it is to look your best on your wedding day, and during your pre-wedding photos – after all, it is a once in a lifetime (at least we hope!) event. Daisy, who is not only our sales manager but Ora’s in-house makeup artist, is highly sought after for brides who want to look their best. If you have ever tried to book her, you will know from her schedule how in-demand she is. (Hint hint, Daisy is still accepting bookings for 2011. Please contact us for her availability and rates.)

One thing she frequently gets requests for by brides-to-be is a natural look. They don’t want anything too heavy, just natural and pretty for the wedding day. Something like these beautiful brides Daisy has worked on (which by the way, are not models, but actual clients!):

The look is clean, fresh, and natural, and really brings out each person’s individual beauty. Not the case of the cloned bride effect: We have heard horror stories of couples who have gone in to view their pictures, only to find that (gasp!) all brides look alike and they cannot even tell which is them – good thing they have the grooms to be able to tell everyone apart. Trust us, this is a common story we hear from our clients, who come to Ora wanting something different: “I want to look beautiful but still like me.”

At Ora, Daisy have perfected her makeup application technique over years of experience working on hundreds of faces, and she still manages to keep it fresh.

As for those brides who are looking for a natural look, I think they got what they were looking for. But here’s something that Daisy always tries to get her brides to understand: in order to achieve the natural look for photos, the work that goes into it is so much more detailed, but the results are so beautiful. So if you want the natural look yourself, don’t freak out when the application takes upwards of an hour and it feels like she is putting so much makeup on – when you see the photos, you will say “wow”, just like we do, every single time.
