my Makeup Artist's chair...

i love makeup. and if not for my office work, I'll grab every chance to do makeup on other people as well, because it is way more relaxing than my real job.

if there's one thing I hate about doing makeup on others, it would be the long hours of standing and having to stoop down each time to reach your client's or model's face who's sitting down. after the 3rd client/model, my back would already be screaming for sure. and that would last for days...OUCH!

so when I first heard about makeup artist's chairs (also called as director's chair), I've wanted to get one since then. but as you all know, I don't get to have much gigs like I've used to since my job literally eats up most of my time. so I was having second thoughts in getting one since I'm afraid I won't be able to use it as much. but during my last wedding gig where I did makeup on 8 people, my back hurt like hell and I can't even keep my back straight for days.

i told myself no more gigs for a while...but when an officemate asked me to do makeup for her brother's wedding, I just can't say NO. Not to her, but to the opportunity to make other people beautiful once again! so yeah, I just knew it's time...



my very own makeup artist's chair
woot!

i got it from here for only Php3500! Way cheaper than the other supplier I was initially planning to get it from.

and the best way to put it to test? bring it all the way to my wedding gig last Saturday!

see, I don't need to stoop down like I used to

I am definitely loving my chair! Imagine, I was able to do makeup on 7 people and my back didn't hurt. hmm, maybe it did hurt a bit...but just a bit! of course, my legs did hurt from standing for hours, but that's okay. it's nothing compared to my back pains before.

the chair is lightweight but a bit bulky. i know some would hate to be seen carrying this around, but i wouldn't mind really. i've been losing my poise all the time anyway, hahah! i would also have to fold it each time so i can put it inside my trunk and just assemble if i need to use it. i love that it is in black but I wish it's in red and black :) i was also in doubt that it won't be able to hold "heavy" clients, but I was wrong. well, maybe it's too early for me to say that since I haven't had a client who's too big.

This is one purchase that I won't regret, a great investment indeed!

Just in case you'd want to get one, hurry up since the seller's planning to increase the price because of the price increase of the materials. She's easy to deal with and very accommodating.

now, I'll be saving up for that lighted mirror next.

Sis! Mind if I ask for the contact details of the supplier? I've scoured around, but most were selling for around 4,500-5,000 :-o
