Los Angeles- Nov. 8, 2010- Betsy diFrancesca, a hairstylist and makeup artist in Los Angeles, provides brides-to-be a way of showing them how they’ll look on their wedding day. During the trial run , she takes pictures after each look and prints them right there. “I find that this gives the bride an idea of how their look will “read” for the camera. Many of my clients come to me because I offer a natural look, however, they don’t realize how much makeup is required to look good for the camera. By taking a “before” picture, I’m able to show them what the camera picks up when they don’t have any makeup on, specifically red tones and under eye shadows. In the “after” shot she can see how easily I can correct this with subtle changes. This also gives her an idea of how different hair styles work in emphasizing or de-emphasizing the shape of her face and what works best with the headpiece and the neckline of her dress.”
The trial run takes anywhere from 3 to 4 hours. and takes place in Betsy’s home in the San Fernando Valley. ”I have plenty of room and good, natural light. I find that holding the trial run here shows my client the setting that I like to create for her- a calm and serene atmosphere that I feel is so important
on her wedding day. The day of the wedding, I’ll bring that atmosphere to her.”
