A wedding, enveloped with love and other emotions, requires a special kind of preparation. Such a momentous event compels couples to look for wedding suppliers, who can help them plan their big day the way close friends would. For professional makeup artist Ana Isip, being a wedding makeup artist does not involve her cosmetic skills alone. Ana understands that working with brides also calls for a personalized approach to deliver satisfactory makeup services.
Ana is committed to guide her clients every step of the way, from giving them valuable pieces of advice on proper skincare down to presenting bridal look options. Equipped with her long-term love for makeup and extensive experience as Sales and Education Manager for Esteé Lauder, Ana presents her brides with valuable bridal beauty tips. "I always make sure that my brides are well taken care of because a wedding is the most important day of a couples' life, and I want them to remember that I gave my all on that very day," Ana shares.
To make sure that every bride is comfortable with her, Ana exerts effort in getting to know her clients well, especially when she dolls them up on their big day. By working closely with her brides, Ana creates diverse bridal looks for different styles and personalities. Ana adds, "Styling a bride is different from styling a regular client because we spend more hours with them. We retouch [their makeup] and sometimes create a second look for the reception."
While Ana is constantly inspired and driven to make her brides look and feel their best, it is the meaningful relationships she gains that keeps her happily working in the industry. Ana shares, "I love weddings so much because it builds a lot of new friendships, which, to me, are one of the best treasures in life."
Propelled by her commitment to make women happy and beautiful on their wedding day, Ana inspires her brides to be at their most beautiful on one of the best days of their lives.
