I can't think of anything more relaxing than getting pampered on my wedding day! I can imagine myself in a hotel suite, surrounded by friends and family, (maybe even drinking a mimosas) and just soaking in every moment of the day. Allison Bower can help make that moment happen!

What is your favorite moment of getting bride ready for her big day?
I love that first moment when she looks at herself in the mirror after her makeup is done. Her face shows it all.

How did you end up being a professional makeup artist?
I was a first grade teacher first, then I had my three children. My first priority was to stay at home with them. When my youngest child turned four, I decided to pursue my dream career that would also revolve around my children's' schedules. I have always loved makeup and the artistry, I just need the freedom to pursue it. I love what I do and it allows me to be creative.
