This is a part of our Creative Collaboration series, where we introduce you to our creative partners from all around the Bay Area. Today, we’re introducing you to Adele Nader of Makeup by Adele.
Today, we’re thrilled to share a bit about Adele, a self-taught makeup artist extraordinaire. What started as an interest as a child turned into a passion as she began working in the cosmetics department of Nordstrom. One thing led to another and, before long, Adele took her love of makeup and her expert talents to the next level and started her own business.
Adele shares what she loves most about being a part of weddings:
I love how much my brides trust me for my expertise on making them look and feel their best on the biggest day of their life! From meeting for the trial and many emails about details, we develop a special relationship. I love how excited they are to see me on the morning of the big day. Many brides have told me how much they appreciate my calm energy. Even when a bride is a little nervous, just sitting in my chair makes them feel a bit more at ease. I just love the whole process and the look on my brides face when she looks at herself in the mirror after her makeup is done. Getting thank you notes from my brides after the wedding always make me so happy and reminds me why I love doing what I do!
She also gave a bit of advice for couples planning their wedding:
Hire a professional planner and trust them! There’s so many aspects that go in to a successful wedding, so be sure to use professionals you trust and you’ve seen/heard their work. The “family friend” thing can be tricky, it’s usually best to use someone who’s not not related or emotionally attached.
