What are the most common types of jobs you offer clients?

Most of the time I do Bridal makeup, Head shots, and Makeup Lessons

What advice do you have for a bride looking to hire a makeup artist for their wedding day?

Do your research. Book a trial session. Ask questions about touch-up services, touch up kits, do they have a website? Do you and the artist have similar tastes in makeup? Call the artist and ask a lot of questions. Do you like her personality? Will she be fun to have around on your special day? Check online reviews.

Why does your work stand out from other makeup artists?

I love the face. It’s possible to achieve a smooth, clean, glamorous makeup look for everyone. I love to enhance my clients best features.

I also have over 10 years of experience working in production, in salons, and with celebrities. Experience counts!!

I often get calls from frantic brides that their makeup artist cancelled on them the day before their wedding or is going on vacation that month. I make sure my brides come first. It’s my client’s most important day. They can count on me to always be there.

What do you like most about your job?

Building relationships with my clients. I have worked with the same people for years. That’s because I love to listen to what my clients are looking for. What schedule they have so I am on their agenda. Also hearing about their lives an be exciting too. Making new friends is a great perk of the job.

How did you decide to become a makeup artist?

I’ve always loved skincare and makeup since I was a child. I would collect products and treat them like treasures. One day I was in between college and wasn’t very happy. My cousin, Sarah recommended beauty school. I went to check out Brown Aveda Institute in Mentor, OH and didn’t look back.

Do you do some sort of continuing education to keep up with latest developments and trends?

Yes I take lessons every once in a while at a makeup school In Los Angeles. Most of the time it’s about keeping up with the trends and practicing them on a model. I also take art classes every month. It’s my way of keeping up with color theory and some therapy.

What kind of products do you use on clients?

For skin care it’s always Arbonne. I believe in Vegan organic products. They are sustainable and up to European standards. No harsh chemicals and they smell amazing.

Cosmetics I have everything from Bobbi Brown to Makeup Forever. I have the perfect products to suit anyone’s skin type, textures, or needs.

What are your operating hours?

Anytime. Day or Night. I have clients that sometimes need meet at 3 am and some that have events late at night. I also travel with clients so whatever their schedule is for their trip.

Do you offer private makeup lessons if I want to do my own makeup for my wedding?

Yes I offer a range of makeup lessons. I offer a bridal class. Sometimes the Bride has a smaller beauty budget. There is no reason she can’t have a professional application on her special day. This class is also great for destination weddings when I am not able to travel with the bride.

What question do you get most from your clients and what is the answer?

Do I travel with to clients for services? Yes!!!!

Last Minute Bridal Beauty

So if you don’t have it in your budget to hire a makeup artist or hairstylist for your wedding and you never got around to choosing your style, do not fear. I have some great tips to help you look your best in a few easy steps.

Color in a pot. You need a pop of color because in photos 70% of your makeup will disappear. You need to up the blush and lips and they eyes to stand out. So something that can be worn on cheeks, lips, and eyes is a big help.

Hair Gloss is great because your mane should look healthy and shiny. Apply a small amount and your hair will look fabulous.

Suffering from humidity? There are humidity helpers out there. Apply the serum and it locks in the moisture while not letting any more in.

Foundation is a MUST. A smooth and even complexion is a must. You will be so happy when you see your photos. It can be very helpful with dark circles or any sudden overnight blemishes. Make sure you are correctly matched by a profession to ensure you have the correct color.

Dry Shampoo is on the list because it helps to have volume when creating any hairstyle. It helps it to stay in place and to give some volume.

Splurge, Cut Corners, or Don’t Buy It?

Do you find yourself wondering why you spent $30 for your lipstick and your girlfriend spent $4 and her color looks so amazing. Are you going back and forth deciding to get that laser treatment or just try another cream to fix those dark spots? I have some tips to help you decide what’s worth the spurge and where to cut corners.

Splurge:

High End Foundation and Concealers.

The more expensive formulas your can afford are worth it. The products have more refined pigments, they go on the skin much smoother and look like you have nothing on. The higher end formulations are better for sensitive skin types. Unless there is fragrance in the formula. So not all expensive formulations are created equal, but that is a whole other article. The concealers also blend more easily and when applied correctly won’t smudge or fade.

Where To Cut Corners:

Blushes and Eyeshadows.

Trendy colors go in and out of style so fast you will use these shades a few times before it’s time to buy the next trends.

Don’t Every Buy This:

Antiaging Makeup.

Cosmetics infused with antiaging products and sunscreen is a waste of your time. You should never replace your quality skincare and sunscreen with makeup that claims to have these ingredients. The makeup does not absorb into your skin like a serum and moisturizer. Your sunscreen is much more effective than a foundation or powder with sunscreen. Do you know how thick you would have to apply your makeup to get the proper coverage. Enough to make you look like you have on way too much makeup.

Remember, good skincare gives you a great complexion so that you can wear less make up.
