I am starting a new blog series featuring lots of local vendors in Birmingham and surrounding areas! This should be fun ! I am going to kick it off with one of my all time favorite people : B r i t t a n y Benton M a s s e y !
Y’all, this girl is beyond talented. Brittany started doing ‘behind the scenes’ work for Alabama Weddings Magazine back in 2010 while she was still in school. She would also do pageant work and high school girls for dances until she received her license! But she always knew weddings and the wedding industry was her main focus. She is now a wonderful hair & make up artist and the proud owner of Hair & Make Up by BBM.
Brittany applies make up in a way that it looks natural, yet the bride feels so glamorous and lovely. She mentioned this when I was speaking with her about her clients, ” It always makes me giddy when the client tells me that what I did is what they always wished they could do!” Brittany draws her inspiration from many avenues, one being Amy Clarke. Amy is a hair and make up artist who creates flawless looks and inspires Brittany along with many other creatives.
I asked Brittany why she loves what she does and this was her response:
“I love love. I guess you could say I’m a hopeless romantic?! Hahaha I love my job because I get to hear love story after love story, and it never fails that I go home at the end of the day more in love with my little family. God knew what he was doing when he created the covenant marriage, and it’s my pleasure to get to witness, and be a part of, so many who chose to become one before the eyes of God.”
She is the sweetest, right? I have so enjoyed getting to know and spend time with this kind hearted friend. Take a look at some of her lovely work!! Oh, did I mention she did the hair and make up for the s t u n n i n g cover of Alabama Weddings Magazine this season? Beautiful!
