On your wedding day, you want to look your absolute best! Which is why we choose the top Texas artists to work with. Wendy Zerrudo is one of the most talented make up artists we have met. We've gotten to work with her many times now and she is not only a true artist when it comes to make up but she is one of the sweetest individuals. If you are looking for any and all make up or hair needs (her assistant Montana is amazing at hair!!!) look no further than Make Up by Wendy Zerrudo based in Mckinney, Tx.
Heirloom: How long have you been doing make up? Tell us a little about your journey into the business!
Wendy: I've been in the Bridal makeup industry for more than 10 years. I started my business back in NJ soon after I became a mom. I wanted to do something I love and could still take care of my son full-time. I started my makeup career with a well recognized makeup company named MAC cosmetics and shortly after went independent to start my own bridal makeup business. I have met so many beautiful and amazing people along the way. Many have become long time friends after their wedding, one of the many perks of my business. I then moved with my family to TX nearly 4 years ago and continued my passion for beauty and started "Makeup by Wendy Zerrudo" here in the DFW area!!
Heirloom: You’re originally from up north! Tell us the thing you love most about being in Texas now.
Wendy: Texas has been really great to me. I have flurried as an Artist and Entrepreneur in the bridal and beauty industry. I love everything about Texas, the people, weather, and the weddings, of course. The weddings are always beautiful and detail oriented.
Heirloom: How do you balance work & family life? Your kiddos are SO sweet!
Wendy: As a wife and mother of 2 handsome boys, I do a great deal of juggling. I'm a big multi-tasker and always have been. When I wrap up a wedding weekend I look forward to getting home and just snuggling up with my boys and watching a movie and having a family dinner. It is those moments I give them 120% of me. I also have to thank my husband for being my #1 fan and supporter. He believes in me and knows how much I love my work and he does so much to take care of our boys while I am busy with my brides and clients.
Heirloom: Why do you feel that having an amazing make up artist is important on your wedding day?
Wendy: As a professional makeup artist in the bridal industry I can tell you that hiring the right makeup artist is crucial. For me, I know my bride's will be in front of the camera lens for several hours and the makeup should look the same from the moment she walks down the aisle til the very end of her reception. These are very special moments in your life and you want to make sure it is perfect. So, when you look back on that day you will see a beautiful natural version of yourself just enhanced and timeless.
Heirloom: What’s one shoot or wedding you’ve never done but have always wanted to?
Wendy: Honestly, all of the weddings and shoots are beautiful BUT I have not done a destination wedding and it is on my bucket list. Who will be my destination bride?? Can't wait to check it off my list!
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
