Douglas Cressman is a make-up artist. That means he works in an industry where skin deep beauty often defines a person. But not everyone in the industry adheres to that stereotypic attitude. Douglas Cressman and many others see the inherent beauty of every person as a quality to be embraced and celebrated. I am proud to call Douglas one of my friends.
Douglas Cressman and Inner Beauty
#throwbackthursday. This was one of the best moments to date of my hair and makeup career. We were helping family's and individuals who were on the streets or in shelters and have never had a professional portrait of themselves. This was not about a designers clothing or about a makeup line. This girl and her family were living in a shelter.
It was sad, this family could not afford a curling iron and the big smile on this girls face when I showed her what she looked like after I curled her hair. She had never had her hair curled before. This event brought tears to my eyes to see so many people in need and how they were able to get all dolled up free for their very own portraits.
It is moments like this I will never forget and will hold this memory close. We all walk around wanting a new this or a new that and never happy. This girls face lit up with something as ordinary as a curling iron and curled hair. Take time to enjoy the little things in life. Thank you so much to Gary S Evans for capturing a memory I will never forget.
