Engagement Photoshoot Makeup

Adorable Natasha came to the makeup studio today for her engagement photoshoot makeup. She wanted dramatic, smokey eyes and her beautiful skin color can certainly enhance the look. I began with OCC's waterbased airbrush foundation in a combination of Y1 and Y2. Yaby's powder blush was used in several of the pink and coral colors. Highlight was placed at the tops of the cheek bones. Natasha wanted a very glam set of false lashes. Her eyes were lined with MUFE black aqua eyes liner. Shades of grays, blacks and silvers were used on Natasha's eyes along with whites to create a sultry, dramatic style. Keeping the lips more neautral was important so I used a combination from Yaby Cosmetics. I think her photo shoot will be fantastic today! 

Bridal Trial Makeup Consultation

Today, Bride, Meghan and her mom Susan came to the makeup studio for their trial consultations. Meghan wanted to stick with pinks and purples for her color palette. I began with OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) using their water-based  airbrush foundation. Her blush was done using Yaby Cosmetics' powder blush in several pink/peach shades. For Meghan's eyes, I chose a combination of plums and pinks from Yaby Cosmetics using MUFE's (Make Up For Ever) black aqua liner. Red Cherry false lashes and black mascara topped off the look. I used Anastasia of Beverly Hills brow powder on Meghan's eyes to define her natural, light blonde eyebrows. I applied Becca's Watermelon lip tint and MUFE's aqua lip liner in a neutral pink on Meghan's lips following with a mix of Yaby's pinky lip colors topped with Face Atelier's lip gloss in Ice.

Do I need a trial makeup consultation for my wedding?

This question comes up quite often so I decided to give you my thoughts. Do I need a trial makeup consultation for my wedding? In one simple word, no . I realize there are some makeup artists out there who will not, for whatever reason, provide wedding day makeup for a bride without first having a consultation. I am not one of those artists. Perhaps it stems from working in the film and print industry (outside of bridal) where I have learned to hone my skills and listen to what the client wants. Whether it's a model, photographer or producer requesting a specific look, I am confident in my ability to provide exactly what they envision for their project. My clients are pleased and everyone walks away satisfied with the results. My years of experience working as a makeup artist in Florida has given me a long history of wedding day makeup for destination brides. Very few of these brides are able to make all but the most required trips to plan their wedding day. Trying to schedule in

Makeup for a Destination Wedding

Destination weddings have become increasingly more common. With a touch of added romance, zesty adventure and of course the sultry GETAWAY, a destination wedding can be just that little special touch you're looking for. Planning and organizing a wedding in another city, state or country can be overwhelming and downright nerve-wracking. Trusting wedding professionals is scary enough, but depending on those not within reach can be quite intimidating.  There are so many things that can go wrong; no-show photographers, inferior products, overbooked rooms, makeup artists not familiar with your skin type….. When planning your destination wedding , why not consider bringing a team of vendors with you? You will be able to easily hash out all the specifics and details in advance. Your stress level will be minimized knowing you’ve had the opportunity to work with them in detail making sure your wishes and ideas are well planned. No need to leave it all up to chance, especially when this is
