I was so excited when Robbie and Ramon asked me to be a guest beauty blogger for their website, R & R Airbrush Makeup Artistry.  Check it out here!

Katelynn and her Bridal Party

As you already know from my blog, I love what I do!  I am extremely lucky to have such amazing, sweet and beautiful clients and the other day was no different!  Katelynn, the gorgeous bride, and her sweet bridesmaids were so much fun to be with on her wedding day.

On the wedding day, the bride sits in my chair and gets to take a moment to enjoy the whole process of the day without any worry!  The bridesmaids get pampered as well.  On each bridesmaid, I try to do different looks customized to each one.  I take into consideration on what the bride wants for her wedding party, as well as what make her bridesmaids feel most comfortable.

Kalei’s Bridal Trial

Enjoyed spending time with Kalei in my studio today!  She came to me for a bridal trial, where we decided on her look for her special day.  She wanted her makeup to be more on the natural side but still stand out in photos.  So, we went with a flawless completion, slightly darker eyes with lashes and a soft lip.

Looking for new and easy foundation?

This is a hard post to write because people will see me without makeup.  But, here goes! 😱

For everyday, I don’t like to really wear a lot of makeup and I don’t always like to take out my airbrush to do my foundation. I like my skin to breath, look natural, and the foundation needs to be good for my skin and contain SPF. Recently, I’ve discovered these awful spots on my cheeks.  Not sure if it is age, stress or hereditary but it needs to go!  So, I am changing my skincare routine and on the search for a new foundation.

I have to tell you….I found an amazing one with medium to full coverage, skincare benefits, super fast to apply and easy to use.  It is called “Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination” by IT Cosmetics.  I have tested it for about a month now and love it.  What do you think?

CC+ Cream with luminosity – added luminosity for dry skin

CC+ Cream – natural finish for oily skin or for those that don’t like some luminosity

These are links to Ulta where I find they carry more of this brand but Sephora also carries it as well.

Roaring 20’s

I had this idea to do series about makeup through the decades. So today, I started it with the Roaring 20’s and my daughter. I am so excited about it! This series might take a while and it might not go in order, but it will get done.img_0914

Wonder Woman 

I have always loved Wonder Woman and was excited when my daughter agreed to let me do a comic book inspired Wonder Woman on her.  Not to mention today is July 4 and what could be more American?

The fabulous Jane!

This beautiful lady, Jane, wanted me to show her how to do some quick makeup techniques for an everyday work look!  She looks polished, but not overdone, bright eyed and ready to work on whatever the day throws at her.
