As per the Brahmin custom, the wedding festivities last for two days in a row and today was the first day. And guess who was the official make-up artist for the ladies of the house? Me!
This is an extremely significant event. Let me tell you why. I have like zero interest in getting dressed up all the time, much to the annoyane of my mom as well as my colleagues from P&G. So if I take the trouble to dress up once in a blue moon, it is a matter of great surprise and intrigue.
The first time my colleagues as well as anyone from my family saw me dressed up (by myself) was during my wedding. I did my own make up for most of the events except for the final wedding day. And I can safely say that my makeup was a LOT better than the so called professional beauticians who did the make up for the final day. My colleagues who had attended my wedding were very pleased with this skill I had developed.
But today was the first time I had to demonstrate my skills of doing make up on other people's faces. And I can proudly say that not only did I think that they all looked very nice but my clients themselves were very pleased and booked my services for the next day! My colleagues would be so proud of me!
