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. 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!

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…

Dahja’s Senior Portrait Makeup 

This beautiful senior, Dahja, had a makeup session with me and then a personalized photo shoot with the super talented Mary Beth’s Photography.  We had so much fun together in my studio creating this look.  Dahja is a natural beauty who normally doesn’t wear much makeup but wanted something special for her shoot.  So, I did a contoured eye with shimmer, thin black, slightly winged liner and topped with false lashes to bring out her eyes on camera!  I kept her skin flawless with a light airbrushing of foundation, some brighter blush and soft lip.  Details on her look below….

Jasmine’s Senior Makeup

I am so lucky to have met this gorgeous young lady and her beautiful mom!  They have been coming to me for a couple of years now and they always brighten up my studio!  Jasmine likes to have more of a natural look so for her senior pictures, we went for a soft contour eye and thin liner with some smudge under her eye to really make them stand out.  Since she has such thick and long lashes, so I just added mascara to top it off.  I also keep the rest of her face natural with light contour and a pop of color on her cheeks.  For her lips, we chose a soft pink with brown undertones that kept the look fresh.

Here are the details on her look….

Airbrushed foundation:  Dinair in Glamour 

Concealer:  IT Cosmetics

Eyes:  Urban Decay and Makeup Geek

Brows and Contour:  Anastasia Beverly Hills

Blush:  Bare Minerals

Lips:  Anastasia Beverly Hills topped with Bare Minerals

Senior makeup for Sarah and Grace

I have known these girls for what seems like forever and I have to tell you, they became seniors in the blink of an eye!  I was excited when I was able to do their makeup for their senior pictures!  I used the same eye makeup palette on both of the girls, just in different ways so they would look totally different and accentuate their own personal style.


Here are the details on their looks….

Eyes:  Urban Decay Smokey Palette, Makeup Geek, Bare Minerals, MAC Cosmetics

Lashes:  Ardell 

Blush:  Bare Minerals and Makeup Geek

Senior Picture Makeup with Madison

I love when I get to see this beautiful girl!  Last weekend, I got to do her makeup for her senior pictures.  Normally, Madison likes her makeup natural but we stepped it up just a bit for her photos.

Did you know when someone is taking your photo, your makeup can look slightly different?  That’s why you need to add some extra color on cheeks and especially on your lips.  Also, always fill in your brows because they will also get lighter in photographs.  

Details on look…

Airbrushed foundation – Dinair, Glamour foundation
Contour and Lip – Anastasia Beverly Hills
Blush – Bare Minerals
Eyes – MAC Cosmetics, MAC liner, Makeup Geek and Bare Minerals
