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!” ūü§£ūü§£. Hey sometimes a girl needs to find and show her fire. Am I right? Makeup details below.

Brooke‚Äôs 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. I also added airbrushed foundation along with contour, and a soft pink on her cheeks and lips. I hope Brooke felt as gorgeous as she looked!

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 ‚ô•ÔłŹ‚ô•ÔłŹ‚ô•ÔłŹ. 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. )

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.

Jessi and BABs

This exquisite bride-to-be found me via a google search in Washington DC, where she currently lives. However, she is getting married closer to her husband’s home town in Aiken. We talked back and forth for a while and I was so excited that I finally got to meet her and get to know her better! She also brought her amazing friend, BABs (which stands for Bad Ass Bitch) with her. (If you’d like to learn more why the call her BABs, check out this link Here. Her story is heartwarming and inspiring. Seriously, click it. You will get goosebumps.)

Back to makeup. Jessi has all sorts of beautiful colors in her wedding flowers so we wanted to keep the eye simple with a red lip and that is exactly what we did! Here is her final look.

Photo Shoot with Baileigh

My daughter, Sydney, was home for the weekend and was feeling very creative so we decided to have a photo shoot with the gorgeous Baileigh. I love being able to partner with Sydney because she is honing her craft of photography. She is trying all different styles to find her own. Couple her amazing photography with Baileigh and my makeup and we have a win-win situation.

This photo shoot started with color theory and outfits. I never want the makeup to match with what the model is wearing but all these pieces must come together and be cohesive. I decided to use medium tones on her eyes with smudgy (that’s a makeup technical term….ūüėā) dark liner. I purposely stayed away from a deep contoured eye and kept her skin as natural as possible using just a bit of concealer and airbrushed foundation. I also kept her face fresh by adding bronzer and a light dusting of contour and a bit of highlight. With all that going on, I choose a matte lip and full false lashes to complete her look.

Brianna’s Bridal Trial

Another day of fun in my studio with a new client, Brianna! Brianna is getting married and wanted a new dramatic look for her wedding day. When she got to my studio, we discussed everything about her look that she wanted. She showed me pictures of what she loves and doesn’t like. (Did you know that what you don’t like is just as important as what you do like?). We talked about her dress, her wedding colors, and her hair. This way, I can create a cohesive look for her wedding day. Here is her final look…..
