Beatle’s Makeup

I love my makeup artistry business for so many reasons like the fact that I have a slight obsession for all things makeup, I love the creativity it brings to my life but most of all, I LOVE meeting new clients. Which brings me to my newest client, Beatle, who was so much fun to work with!

Beatle is a beautiful, fun and vibrant mom who needed her makeup done for a ball she was going to attend. She said that she wanted “natural glam” and this is her final result! Details on her makeup below.

Holiday Inspired Makeup

Are you feeling in the holiday spirit yet or do you have a fun holiday party to attend?  Try this contoured eye with a bit of glitter and rosy cheeks!

For flawless foundation, I airbrushed it using Dinair in Radiance for a slight glow to the skin.  For the eyes, I primed them with Urban Decay primer and brushed on a soft yellow shadow as a base by Makeup Geek.  In the crease, I used a warm light brown.  Then, I used 3 different colors of green (all from Smashbox), starting with the lightest in the center of the lid, the mid-shade closer to the outside corner and then added the darkest in the outer corner. Closer to the inner eye, I used a soft Smashbox pink.  Topped with a black Tarte slightly winged liner and then carried the darkest green and warm light brown to under the eye to give it a cohesive look.  To finish off the eye look, I added Urban Decay glitter liner from my inner corner crease to mid-crease, tapering it off and my favorite wispy lashes from Ardell.

I wanted this look to have rosy cheeks, so I added a very bright pink blush and Deep End contour from Bare Minerals.  Highlighter and brows are both products from Anastasia Beverly Hills.

What are your holiday go to looks?

Bella’s Makeup

Mary Beth Photography took these gorgeous portraits of Bella for her 11th birthday.  I thought it was a really great idea to take portraits at this age, when most of time, this special age goes undocumented. I also loved the confetti balloons and thought it was the perfect touch! I had so much fun getting to know Bella and pampering her with a makeup session.

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….

Anne Marie’s Headshot

Lately, I’ve been asked to do makeup for several different kinds of portraits.  I love being able to show my range, whether it is for a bride and her bridal party, commercial shoot, maternity or professional headshots!  This one happens to be for an attorney who speaks at several events during the year and needed a new headshot.  Of course, this portrait was taken by the talented Mary Beth’s Photography.  

My goal when I apply makeup is to make my client feel as confident and comfortable as possible, along with feeling extra beautiful .  When my clients feel this was, I think all of these things are revealed in photos.  So, makeup is just not about how you look on the outside, by how you feel on the inside!
