As we enter wedding season this month, I want to reach out to all of my brides to be for this year , 2018 and to any other brides that are getting ready for their special day !
As your makeup artist I want to make sure that I can provide the most absolute application for you for your day but there's a few things to know before hand that will help you better prepare !
1. For Your Trial try to come with a bare and cleansed face , try not to use any new facial feels before your appointment !
I always ask for my brides to bring pictures of styles that inspire them for their makeup - I will always put my creative touch on your application but sometimes visuals of what your looking for help us better understand what you may be looking for !
2. Be Realistic with how much you normally wear compared to what you may ask for. If you don't normally wear makeup but ask for a flawless effect or bring in a picture of kim kardashian just know you may have an amount of makeup on that you are not use to but my job is to make sure you still feel like yourself !
3. Skin Is In ! The key to a smooth radiant application is your skin. Finding a good skin regime and making sure you fuel your body with lots of water and Whole Foods helps you from the inside -out !
4. Don't Stress over us ! As your artist and a professional I strive to make sure you are getting ready in a calm positive atmosphere and would never leave until you and your party are looking and feeling beautiful ! You seek us out to make sure your face is in good hands and that is what we are here to do !
I can't wait for this season of all beautiful new beauty adventures !

Mario is most well known for creating Kim Kardashians signature looks and a celebrity makeup artists to the most powerhouse women in Hollywood. He has set a new standard for makeup Artistry in the industry and started hosting Master Classes around the world to share is tips and applications ! Having him be an artist that I aspire to and can relate to his style of technique I did not want to miss the chance to learn and meet him !
The Hall in NYC was filled with 200-300 people all in the industry ready and just as excited I was ! He came out and introduced the model for the day which is pop star Bebe Rexha ( she is fab and so funny ) !
He started out explaining how clients feel when they sit in his chair and why it was so important to leave a lasting impression - and when you love what you do it shows ..
As he continued with his application he displayed the products he was using and tricks and tips to go alongside with those products . Some I've seen and heard before and a lot I have not that I have taken back with me for my future clients !
After the 5 hour class and meet with him - it was time for the goody bags ! So many amazing sponsors have amazing products ! Products from Cargo, Anastasia Beverly Hills , Beauty blender all the way to Ricky's NYC ( my favorite store since I was young girl visiting my family in the city ).
In an industry where you are always becoming, growing and changing , knowledge Key to staying true to who are and want to be.
Im so grateful for that experience and cant wait to take what I've learned and share it with you in your applications!

Educating has ALWAYS been a huge part of my passion in this industry (during my applications I am usually somehow teaching you a trick or tip as I go). I will now be offering my classes- demos and hands on classes once or twice a month starting in January !

All makeup is vegan free, cruelty free, paraben free and pigmented which makes for amazing quality makeup for you and for the care of your skin !
This class I will be teaching you techniques that benefit each face shape, eye shape and skin type. We will be learning how to go from your everyday makeup that enhances your natural beauty to an evening look that will have you feeling sexy and confident ! These techniques will make each transformation easy, and flawless ! I will also be sharing techniques that I will be learning from the MASTER CLASS by celebrity makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic!
In this class you will have your own station that will include makeup, mirrors, pencil/notepad, application tools and lets not forget your goody bag ! All yours to take home !!!!!!!!!

Ive had such a busy wedding season so far and feel extra blessed to be able to take a little break to have our second daughter ! I will be out of the studio from September 5- October 1.. I will still answer all emails as much as I can and still book appointments for when I return :: I can't wait to see all my clients and brides in October ! Have a great September :))
I have been so excited for Michelle to start her wedding planning and love I am apart of her special days ! I have gotten a lot of requests for some of the details in Michelle's application for her Engagement photo shoot a couple weeks ago ! Michelle had a vision of something whimsical and romantic for her shoot but still totally wanting a full glam application. We went back and forth on ideas and once I knew her style and vision she gave me free range to be creative (one of my favorite things to hear)..
For Michelle's skin- I wanted her to be full coverage and make her naturally perfect cheek bones have a highlight that angels would be jealous over ! I am biased with certain foundations and play favorites but one of my new ones is from Giorgio Armani toped with matting powder and the highlight I combined Anastasia Beverly Hills and High beam from Benefit ( be careful- not meant for every skin type !)
Her eyes were smoked out with liner cut to kill - when your smoking out underneath the eye be sure to always use transition colors so the smoke blends and softens with the skin underneath! Lindsay from Salon 52 Hair studio completely delivered with Michelle's vision for her hair! AMAZING. I cant wait to post some sneak peaks from her shoot soon to come and for her wedding coming soon in March 2017 !
