What you need to know...
My style of artistry is chic, fresh and elegant.
I take the fact that I am helping you prepare for a momentous occasion very seriously. My goal is that you feel pampered, relaxed and, of course, beautiful. As a professional makeup and hair artist, I am constantly on the hunt for the best products on the market, application and trends. I feel privileged to offer my clients a customized, luxury experience. I will work with you to understand your desires (and dislikes) so we can design your bridal look that will be polished, timeless and cohesive with your wedding style.What I want you to know...
Before I became a makeup and hair artist, I was a bride. I remember vividly what it was like to plan a wedding -factoring all of the decisions, agonizing over every detail, and wanting everything to be just as I imagined.
Naturally, there were compromises that had to be made but one thing I did not waver on was my look. Many years later I am still looking back at images and I am so happy that I prioritized to have one of the best artists and photographers to help archive our special day. Many things went awry on our wedding day but I felt absolutely beautiful and nothing could bring me down; I was getting married! I attribute much of how I felt to (yes, marrying my soulmate AND...) being surrounded by fabulous people. In the end, we had an amazing day that I will cherish forever and I know you will too. Some tidbits you may find interesting...
My top three favorite cosmetics (because really, how can you choose just one?):
1) BB Creams with SPF 30 or higher- still determining my favorite brand
2) Perfect Mascara by LimeLight by Alcone
3) Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume -I know, not a cosmetic but it makes you feel like a million bucks!
