My passion

As my clients know….. I LOVE my job! It is what I’ve wanted to be before I knew that people could do it for a living. (Remember, those were the days before YouTube and “beauty influencers.”)

It brings me joy to see the confidence it inspires in women. One of my favorite aspects of my job is that of a teacher. I enjoy teaching all ages some of my professional makeup tips I’ve learned through all the years.

This brings me to the adorable Ashlyn and her hands on makeup lesson …. I think she rocked it! What do you think? ♥️♥️♥️

Katherine’s Prom Makeup

Katherine came to me through referrals from a few of my clients and I was so excited to meet this beauty. We texted back and forth a bit to make sure we were both on the same page for her makeup for prom. Katherine said she wanted natural but with glitter. I used soft browns, smudged, barely there liner, Urban Decay glitter and of course, lashes to finish off the eyes. Her luminous skin was topped off with airbrush foundation (that kept those adorable freckles on her nose), contour, a pop of color on the cheeks and an Anastasia Beverly Hills lip.

Baileigh’s Prom Makeup

Now, this captivating beauty might look familiar to you! She is posted all over my website, has been my model and I also am her makeup artist for her fun occasions. This time, it is for prom.

When Baileigh showed me a picture of her unique prom dress, I instantly thought of what her makeup should look like. She has been experimenting more in her makeup looks and we decided to do a dark smoky eye that made those hypnotic eyes even more blue! I’ve coined this eye look the “screw you eye!” 🤣🤣. Hey sometimes a girl needs to find and show her fire. Am I right? Makeup details below.

Brooke’s Makeup for Prom

This was my first time meeting Brooke and we had a blast together! Brooke wanted a contoured eye with a bit of silver sparkle and fabulous lashes to compliment her gorgeous dress.

Prom Season has begun….Dahja and Katie

This is one of my favorite times of the year when I can get creative and have some extra fun with makeup. Prom is a time to go with the trends and let a bit loose.

Dahja and Katie are returning clients that I am very thankful for! Dahja wanted to go for a bold lip, winged liner and I painted on a fun detail in metallic liner. Katie wanted to keep things on the more natural side with browns to go with her hot red dress. They are both seniors, best friends and both off to the same college next year. Congratulations beautiful girls! Here are the details on their looks….

Rhi’s Prom Trial

Sometimes trusting your face to a new makeup artist can be scary. I can just imagine what my new clients are thinking . . . is she going to make me look like a clown, does she keep everything sanitary, what if I don’t like it, can I be honest with her, what are her qualifications . . . just to name a few. This is why makeup trials are so important, no matter the event.

In walks Rhi, a natural beauty, for her prom makeup trial. We sat down and talked for a bit. She told me that she doesn’t wear much makeup, if any at all but wanted a new look for prom. She showed me her stunning black dress and we discussed how she was going to wear her hair too. This way, she will have a cohesive look for her senior prom!

Here are the details on her look…

Riley’s Cotillion Makeup

I was so excited when I got to meet Riley to do her makeup for cotillion pictures. We sat a talked a bit before we got started. (This is something I like to do for all my clients. It helps my clients feel more comfortable, allows me to find out their likes, dislikes, skin type and helps me provide the best service possible.)

I found out that Riley did her homework and stalked my Instagram page, which I ♥️♥️♥️. I think all my clients should do their research. She found several looks that she really liked so I decided to do a combo of them and used my brand new palette from Pat McGrath Labs. (Want to learn more about Pat McGrath Labs, watch a video here. )

Here is her before and after….

Amanda’s Pageant Makeup

I had the pleasure of doing Amanda’s makeup for her first high school pageant! We wanted to keep it “natural” by keeping with brown and bronze tones and a contoured eye. I finished off her look with flawless airbrushed foundation, contour, bright blush, a soft berry lip and lashes. And guess what? She won 2nd runner up for her Freshman class! Way to go Amanda!

Mrs. Betty

I received a call from my client who wanted to book another makeup lesson with me, as a refresher course.  She also made an appointment for her friend, Mrs. Betty.  These two ladies are amazing and fun!  I love that ALL ages are willing to learn something new and that every age feels comfortable coming to me.  Do you or someone you know want to learn how to do your makeup different, better, or a trend you’d like to master?  Give me a call or text to schedule your appointment.

Did you know that makeup lessons with me are hands on using my products and well as what is already in your own makeup bag?  Typically, I do one side and my client does the other.  Here are beautiful Betty’s results.  Stunning, if I do say so myself.
