Hello my lovely past, present and future brides, bridesmaids, mums and K-Team clients that we’ve had the absolute pleasure beautifying over the last 12 months or look forward to styling in the next 12.
It’s been another wonderful action-packed and positive-emotion-charged year! The K-Team and I enjoyed zooming around the country beautifying our brides and their bridal parties and working tirelessly at the studio with trials, special occasion makeovers, makeup and hair professional courses and lessons.
We’ve been to hundreds of weddings, have met the most wonderful brides, bridesmaids and mums and have managed to keep in touch with loads of you (thanks to social media). We’ve had 3 babies! Jane, Aušra and our newest team member Lina have all given birth to gorgeous little ones. This job that we all love allowed them to dive out of wedding action and dive back in again when they were ready, we just had to plan their schedules well ahead what with the majority of bookings coming in up to 24 months in advance :o)
We’ve also been touched by so many kind words from our brides that keep coming in via e-mails and letters. This continuous positive feedback lets us know that we are doing what we do right and makes us want to do our jobs even better all the time! We regularly attend makeup masterclasses and some of us have been lucky enough to meet and learn from the best in the industry – such as Sam McKnight, Laura Mercier, Mario Dedivanovic (Kim Kardashian’s personal makeup artist) and Lisa Eldridge.
Our passion for hairstyling and makeup is endless and all of the K-Team girls are ready to drop everything for a chance to practice, try out new things or attend an exciting masterclass or beauty event. We’ve also been putting together loads of photoshoots to allow our creative juices to flow and test out new products. We regularly hold team skill-honing days to ensure that we always keep up with the most current, beautiful and expertly created makeup and hair looks.
Our continuous improvement is never-ending – we strive to increase our knowledge and understanding more and more on how to select and create the most flattering styles; we check out the latest trends at fashion shows and red-carpet events; we practice the most effective colour combinations to work harmoniously on each face shape – how to correct, lift, sculpt, shape, enhance and inject youth whilst looking effortlessly and naturally beautiful and therefore feeling comfortable. Creating confident and content ladies looking their most beautiful ever. This is our goal each and every time.
We create hair and makeup looks with the aim that our clients will look their best EVER. If you tell us that’s how you feel, we know we’ve done our job well. The testimonials, feedback, thank you emails and cards and other special gestures are always much appreciated and make our day.
Having such passion for my job makes me jump out of bed every morning, excited about what the day promises and I always try to share the love and all of the skills I’ve learned to others. A life full of excitement and action is a very happy life!
Another activity that has kept me busy over the last 12 months is the demand for my professional courses, this has grown and grown and I am happy to announce that the Kristina Gasperas Academy website is now live. This includes makeup and hair courses and details our unique training approach. Kasia is just about to complete a 4-month stint with the world’s top hairstylist Sam McKnight and will be able to share the knowledge and skills learnt in her hair courses. Both of us continue to enjoy teaching and empowering our students, who come from all over the world, to become their very best. Several of them were my previous bridal clients who got inspired to become makeup artists on their wedding day – just as I did over 7 years ago! I’ve not looked back since.
Due to continuous demand for our services, which we are always very grateful for, the K-Team has grown. We grow steadily as each member must be completely ready to deliver the highest standard of service that I demand of myself. One of the members that has joined this year is Kristida, our award-winning photographer – she is available to beautifully capture you looking amazing, be it for wedding, lifestyle or boudoir shoots. She was the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers Boudoir Photographer of Year in 2014. Many of our previous brides expressed to us how they would have liked a package that includes wedding photography to make life easier for them, you can now therefore book top quality bridal makeup and hair as well as wedding photography all in one place! What more could you want!
We’ve also simplified our makeup and hair prices to a straightforward pricing structure. Each K-Team member has their prices on their individual pages except for mine and Kasia‘s. Also a link to each member’s testimonials page can be found on their respective individual pages.
Hopefully this makes things easier.
So, a super-massive THANK YOU to all of you past, present and future brides for allowing us to create your dream looks so that on the most important day of your lives you look the most beautiful and confident ever. We hope that you will look back at the photographs and admire how amazing you looked on your wedding day for many years to come. We feel lucky and honoured to be a part of your special day and look forward to many more in 2016!
Happy New Year!
