Airbrush Makeup

Custom blended airbrush makeup: (This is a silicone based makeup intended for flawless coverage. It's sweatproof, wipeproof, & cryproof). Traditional powder or liquid based makeup can settle into pores and wrinkles as well as it being visible on camera. I use a professional airbrush compressor, all done by freehand. It's adjustable and can appear not only very natural (non-heavy like traditional makeup) but also can be full coverage (if needed). I have covered scars, burns, tattoos, tan lines ect...It wears longer than traditional powder or liquid foundation and it able to stay put upwards of 12-24 hours. The technique is more sanitary than traditional makeup application due to me never actually having to touch the skin directly.

Wedding Hair & Introduction to Trials

Wedding Season 2013 is quickly approaching...Here's an example of a look I get asked to do time and time again! Loose, a little "undone", soft curls, twisty, sexy, lots of texture, voluminous. These are common descriptions of when I ask, "What are we doing with you hair?" I always recommend to have clean, dry hair ready to go on the "big day". Having photos always helps paint a picture of exactly what your looking for! :) Brides should always book a trial* prior to their wedding. 

*(This is an extensive trial where we really fine tune what your looking for. If you’d like to try both an updo or wearing it all down…this is the time to do it. Also if you’d like to try both a natural and more glam style of makeup. I always tell my brides to at least try two options. What you decide on, may surprise you!)

Taylor Swift inspired side-do

She walked in feeling insecure of her thick, curly and frizzy hair and didn't think this particular style was achievable. This was an elegant side-swept hairstyle I created working with the natural texture of her hair. She was smiling ear to ear when she walked out, saying that she had Taylor Swift's hair for the night! It makes my job so incredibly fulfilling when I can make someone feel beautiful. Especially young girls like her, that didn't even realize the natural beauty she truly has!
