As a professional makeup artist my career has taken me to many wonderful places and put me in front of many remarkable people, it has also taken many forms; advertising, magazine editorial, celebrity portraiture, and television commercials. The largest portion of my work has been in print media / advertising . Print is a still-medium that requires great attention to detail. A competitive and specialized field with the highest of standards. A makeup artist with this type of training assures a blended and flawless application.
I find that wedding day makeup can be the most demanding of all applications. It requires coverage that looks healthy and natural and in the most revealing light, daylight It needs to photograph beautifully and last well in to the night as well as through hugs and tears. Oh … and lets not forget it needs to be kissable too! A tall order but with an experienced makeup artist it’s a realistic request.
My approach to bride beauty is authentic beauty, the look is sophisticated, natural glamor that is never a distraction. I prefer to minimize flaws as opposed to covering them; sheer coverage with a subtle mat finish or a healthy glow. I love the micro powders and high tech foundations that allow for this beautiful combination. I love a beautifully shaped brow, a rosy glow, lashes that add just the right amount of contrast for an overall look that says feminine, glamorous and smart. A makeup preview and beauty consultation is always included. A few of my favorite cosmetic brands are Bobbi Brown, Shu Uemura, Nars and Laura Mercier.
