Mothering might be the toughest job in the world. Glamorous mother/daughter pictures from beautifully styled weddings bely the years spent laboring in childbirth, dirty diapers, screaming toddlers, angry teens, expensive college, and finally, wedding planning.
It’s not a job for everyone (certainly not for this otherwise intrepid makeup artist), so I offer my sincerest Happy Mother’s Day wishes to all of those beautiful souls who take on the job.
How do they know how to comfort us? How do they know how to make things right? I have no idea – they just do.
At SB Beauty, we love taking care of moms and grandmas. We hope to make their makeup and hair moments ones of tranquility, and to build confidence for the cameras and relatives just outside the door.
Just like each bride has her own look, each mom is an individual and deserves a look designed around her taste, gown, level of occasion, and most importantly, comfort.
Lastly, Happy Mother’s Day to Gail Becker, AKA the Dowager Countess of Sycamore. She continues to put up with our shenanigans and still slays with zingers. Here she is on her wedding day in 1960. Happy Mother’s Day, all!
