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.

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 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!

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!

I had the pleasure of doing Amanda’s makeup for her first high school pageant! We wanted to keep it “natural” by keeping with brown and bronze tones and a contoured eye. I finished off her look with flawless airbrushed foundation, contour, bright blush, a soft berry lip and lashes. And guess what? She won 2nd runner up for her Freshman class! Way to go Amanda!

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.
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….😂) 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.
