I really enjoyed meeting Maisey and her mom for pageant makeup this weekend. They are such a cute duo and Maisey is just as sweet as she is beautiful! She was a referral from another wonderful client of mine, Madison. (Thank you Madison. ♥️♥️♥️)
Maisey was advised to wear her makeup on the heavier side and also more bold for the stage and the stage lights. (Any good makeup artist should already know this.). However, I did not want to take away her individuality that makes her unique. This is where the beauty of airbrushed foundation comes it. Skin still looks like skin, even with full coverage!
Not only did we laugh and have fun…. Maisey won runner-up!! ♥️. Congratulations!

This extremely talented photographer, Sydney Rose Photography , is home for the summer so we decided to have some fun! This time she chose another client of mine, Kelsey. If Kelsey looks familiar to some of you, she is also my helpful makeup assistant.
Kelsey is a budding artist who writes her own songs, sings and plays guitar which inspired both the photographer and myself. Details on her look below.

I always love when my talented daughter wants to do a photo shoot! Sydney is super creative and pretty much lets me do whatever I want, makeup wise. I’ve also become the stylist on these shoots, which excites me! Check out her website at Sydney Rose Photography for more of her captivating photography. (Seriously, she is soooo good!)
Sydney loves to use my clients as models and this time she chose Katherine. Katherine is beautiful inside and out. I absolutely love her gorgeous skin and cute freckles. For this shoot, I airbrushed a bit of foundation and kept her freckles visible, used the new “Soft Glam” palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills for her eyes, some contour, plum blush and also pushed some dark brick red gloss on her lips with my finger to keep it organic. Here a portrait from the shoot.

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 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.

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.

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….

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!
