I went to sleep from 5 pm but I couldn’t. (If I worried about makeup, I wouldn’t sleep and it wasn’t my sleep time.) Then the alarm clock sounded at 04:15 am on October 16, 2017. I got ready at 04.30 am. I went to the hotel and went up to the floor of the room at 04.35 am. I heard the sound of the people was bathing. So I waited until 04.40 am then I knocked on the door. The sound of the shower quieted down then the customer opened the door. English conversation began.
Customer: Come in, you can prepare at there.
Customer: I told you to makeup at 05.00 am only because I have to pray before 05.00 am.
Me: Oh, I get. (She know that my doubt.)
While I was waiting for customer prayed. I also prepared to get ready to start work. At the time 05.00 am I started my job. The bride was so cute, fun, talkative. She asked questions all the time. “What’s this?” “What do you use?” Some words I didn’t understand because it was hard accent.
During makeup, she would tell me about bridal makeup styles that she want and have reference to showed me. “Sharp and soft arch eyebrows”, “Gold and brown blending eyes”, “Long winged eyeliners”, “Don’t like long false eyelashes, prefer short false eyelashes”, “Pinkish orange blush” and “Brownish-orange lipstick”.
(I painted the face chart after finished job.)
We talked of 2 hours all the time of makeup. (I accelerated hands for makeup to finish on the time) And I didn’t forget to ask the question that I prepared.
She got my number from the website www.maelingmakeup.com. She didn’t have a Facebook, she didn’t like Facebook. She said that it was easy to search from Google and my website has contact information. (I forgot the question of keyword to used)
Finish the job. The bride paid full cash as agreed. But I didn’t have a photo of the bride for my portfolio because she didn’t allow me to take photo.
Finally, I think that. I made this website based on the instructions of the photographer. He said that the website should come up for increase credibility and more customers, especially foreign customers because they didn’t trust Facebook.
In 7 months that I have opened this website. I have tried to get my website up on the first Google page of keyword search. The first day of my website was far from page 5-6 and today it really is. And I have first foreign customer from this channel. I don’t hope to have many customers but let’s have it all the time.
