Destination Weddings

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 artist's 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 whe

September Bride Erin

September bride Erin chose to go with a different makeup look for her wedding day. She typically wears neutrals and pinks. We opted for navy blues to dramatically define her eyes. Yaby Cosmetic eye shadows in So Navy, Carbon Paper and Indigo Mine were used along with Make Up For Ever's aqua eyeliner in 3L (Dark Blue) A touch of silver shimmer over the entire eyelid added a touch of fun. Erin's cheeks were accented with Yaby blush in bl022 and highlight in pf089 with contouring in bl017. I started with Becca Beach Tint in Strawberry on her lips, followed with a neutral lip liner by Make Up For Ever, topped off with a combination of Yaby lip colors in lc131, lc252 and lc268. A hint of Face Atelier's lip glace in Flamingo to add shine.

I've had to turn away many disappointed brides who waited until only a few weeks or even a month before their big day. I do not have a "team" of artists, so I can only book a minimum number of clients in any given month. One thing to keep in mind is that since I am not a "team" of artists, you can rest assured knowing that the makeup work you see on my website has been done by me and only me. I can imagine it might be confusing to look at a website wondering what artist did which makeup. But on my site, it's me, just me. Saturdays and Sundays are usually always booked well in advance, but I've recently noticed a trend toward Friday weddings. So, no matter what day your special event falls on, I would be sure to plan well ahead to be able to book the artist you want. I also seem to receive a lot o
