BOW_DigitalBadge_2019_120x120.png

This year was my second year being listed on The Knot and my second year receiving the Knot Best of Weddings! I am so grateful to everyone who took the time to leave me a review. I know when I am shopping around for ANYTHING I go to the reviews first. This is super helpful for me as a vendor and for prospective brides wanting to get other’s opinions.

Some of my 2018 brides and bridal parties..


I love looking back at the pictures and reliving all the glam and the many sweet moments. I am so lucky to work with such beautiful and warm people. Thank you thank you!

New things in 2019

2019 is going to be a busy wedding season and I can’t wait! I will be adding some new artists to the team to prepare for the larger bridal parties. I have very high standards so I make sure to bring only the best artists to help.

I am also going to be offering hair accessories available to purchase for the wedding day. I am currently adding to my collection so there will be plenty of options!

As always, I am continuing education and practicing new styles and techniques so that I can be at the top of my game. I am constantly playing with new products too to make sure that my kit is comprised of only the best performing products.

Looking forward to the many new faces of 2019. Happy holidays everyone!

The Villa San Juan Capistrano - Romantic Bridal Makeup & Hair

I am so in love with everything about this wedding!! Not only is the couple, Liz and Ryan, so adorable together, but their wedding took place in the most romantic venue with the most amazing florals and decor (see vendors below). I first met Liz and Ryan when they were engaged for a styled wedding shoot (the images and video are featured on the home page). The shoot was a totally different style than their actual wedding, so it was fun getting to create both looks on Liz.

To achieve her dewy complexion, I airbrushed her foundation, blush, and bronzer. The formula I used was the Temptu S/B formula, which is long lasting and gives a very hydrated look. 

For her hair, we went with a style that was inspired by a picture she sent me. It was mostly down, but with some structure to help it last longer and be out of her face. She loves braids, so I made sure to incorporate that into the style. 

Makeup for Engagement Photos using Kett Hydro Airbrush

Hey everyone! I thought I would start going into more detail here on my blog about some of the makeovers I post on instagram.

The beautiful woman pictured below was my client for an engagement shoot. I used the Temptu Air as a compressor/gun to spray on the Kett Hydro (water based) foundation. I am in love with the Temptu Air! If you haven't heard of it, and you are someone who regularly has to travel with airbrush I highly recommend it!! (Will be posting a review on Youtube/ this blog about Temptu Air). Anyway, I love how it turned out. Product details below.

  • Kett Hydro foundation
  • Tarte creaseless concealer
  • RCMA no color powder
  • Ben Nye Banana powder
  • Tarte blush "Culture" 
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow wiz Medium brown
  • NYX brow gel

That's it for makeup! For hair I used a 1.5 in barrel to create some volume then set it with Sebastian Shaper Spray! 

 

 

Country Bride | Giracci Vineyards and Farms | Orange County Makeup Artist

I am so lucky to have the most amazing brides as clients! Lisa was a sweetheart the first day I met her at her trial. She was also taking her engagement photos that day. Using your engagement photos as a bridal trial is a great way to test how the makeup photographs. After the trial, we discussed subtle changes to enhance her look to stand out more on camera, while still looking natural.

On the wedding day, I airbrushed her foundation, bronzer, and contour with Kett Hydro airbrush makeup. Lisa told me that it held up even after her crying most of the ceremony! For her hair, we added extensions and created a half up style with curls. I am in love with how everything turned out! She was such a beautiful bride, and I'm so grateful for my part in her wedding.

Laguna Beach & Huntington Beach Wedding - Lillia and Will

I'm so excited to share Lillia and Will's beautiful wedding pictures by Lokitm Photography.  Their wedding was divided into two separate days with the ceremony held in the gorgeous Laguna Beach, and the reception in Huntington Beach! Lucky me, I got to get her ready twice!! 

I used Kett hydro airbrush on Lillia for even, long lasting coverage. I brought out her eyes with matte, warm brown eyeshadows and lashes for a little drama while keeping it soft. 

Also, can I just say I LOVE her tea length dress. It pairs perfectly with the shoes and the charming backdrop!

 

Thank you Lillia for choosing me as your wedding makeup and hair artist. I am so honored and happy to have met you!

Bridal Spotlight

I am in love with this makeup and hair look I created with my beautiful bride, Rosemary! I say with, because it is a collaborative process with my brides to make them look exactly the way they want! She was such a sweetie; I really enjoyed getting to know her the months leading up to her wedding.

When Rosemary and I met for her bridal trial, she knew exactly the type of look she was going for: voluminous curls, and brown smokey eye with nude lips. To get a flawless finish to her skin, I used waterproof creme makeup with a thin layer of airbrush foundation on top.

An essential part of every trial is to take photos of the completed look! This is so important because it allows both the bride and me to see how the makeup photographs, and it gives me  the opportunity to really study the photos to make any improvements for the wedding day. We made a few adjustments for her wedding day, including adding some flowers to one side of her hair. 

I can't get over how glamorous and GORGEOUS Rosie looked with her completed look in her wedding dress. I got this message from her the next day:

I love how my makeup looked so natural and so beautiful thank you so much!!

Congrats again to Rosemary and Sal!!

Bridal Makeup

I love doing bridal makeup! Making the bride feel her most beautiful and confident on a day she will always remember is so important to me. I get to witness and be a part of those precious moments before the bride is about to walk down the aisle, surrounded by her family and closest friends.  

The photos below are from one of my beautiful brides, Bree.  She had done a bridal trial before her wedding, so she was able to test out the makeup look. By the time her wedding day arrived, she had decided to change the eye shadow colors slightly to include more purple tones (which brought her eye color out even more!)

Waterproof Makeup - Rania's Bridal Makeup

I am loving these pictures from Rania's wedding! She is such a beautiful and sweet person, I am so glad to have been her makeup artist. Rania and I had spent quite a bit of time at her trial trying on several different eye looks and took pictures of each look so she could decide which one suited her best.

Rania's Wedding Makeup:

We settled on a look that highlighted her lid with a soft sparkling white color. I smoked out the crease and lower lash line with muted purple tones to further emphasize her eye shape. For extra drama, I lined her eyes with black waterproof gel liner and stacked two false lashes on top of her own. 

For her foundation, I airbrushed waterproof makeup, Kett Hydro Proof.  I used different airbrush colors to highlight and contour her face. For blush, I used Kett's waterproof creme blush - I am in love with their creme blushes! I used MAC's soft & gentle to add some glow to her cheeks, and on the lips I filled in the lip entirely with Rimmel's thousand kisses lip liner (long lasting) and put some MAC lipstick in creme cup on the center to add a little highlight.

I stayed the majority of the wedding to be on hand for hair and makeup touchups (hair originally styled by Abby Kawaja). It was a beautiful wedding that took place in an elegant wedding venue that went perfectly with Rania's hair, makeup, and dress! 

Bridal Party Makeup

Wedding makeup for Mother of the Groom and family.

Here are some photos from my last wedding I worked on in Texas, right before leaving for California! I did the makeup for all of the ladies in the photos, and hair was done by Erica Marni Edwards (based out of Houston). 

Some of them chose to have their makeup airbrushed, while others did not. I love working with both traditional and airbrush makeup and can achieve similar results with both. Some people don't like the experience of feeling air blowing on their face, while others find it refreshing.  If you are a bride wondering which way to go, a bridal trial is a good way to test both out. 

Enjoy the rest of the photos! Photos taken by Amanda Freeman Photography. 


Beautiful Bride - Brittney's Wedding in Houston, TX

Here are the pictures from my bride, Brittney's, wedding in Houston, TX. Her beautiful photos were taken by Ama by Aisha.  Brittney was such a sweet bride with the most gorgeous green eyes! For her makeup, I used Kett Hydro Airbrush foundation to create a flawless base that doesn't look thick or heavy. I also used the airbrush to subtly emphasize the contours of her face.  For her eyes I did a very classic and timeless look that has just the right amount of drama to bring out the beautiful color in her eyes. Enjoy the pictures!
