The last thing you want to worry about while planning any special occasion is your makeup. When you hire a makeup artist you are offered a level of experience, education and skill that will help you create the look you desire. Our job is to help you alleviate the pressures and stress of worrying about your face. You will save time and energy that can be allocated for more important tasks. It's an investment that will last you a lifetime (through photos).

I am not sure what makeup look I want, can you help?

Yes, of course! It is my job to help you create a custom makeup look that fits your face shape, style, and personality. Once you have booked your consultations, we will discuss the looks that you would like. I always suggest googling 3 to 4 images that come close to what youre looking for me to create. Once you send your photos to me, I will also suggest how we can play up some of your features and see how the look could best serve your needs. This is one of the best parts of the process!

Are false eyelashes necessary and can I opt out of using it?

It is completely up to you if you want to include false eyelashes into your makeup look. I want you to be comfortable and feel confident. However I do feel eyelashes help to elevate the makeup look and adds a finishing touch.

I offer a wide range of lash options that go from natural to really dramatic. If you have lash extensions you can choose to opt out or add an extra pair on top.
