Airbrush Bridal Makeup for Bride Jean - Orange County, San Diego, Los Angeles Wedding Makeup Artist

I had the pleasure of doing the makeup for Jean and her bridal party. What a sweet and beautiful group of girls!

Gold and Silver Shimmery Eyes

For Jean's makeup, she wanted to incorporate gold and silver into her look, so using my Yaby pearl paint eyeshadows, I blended the shimmery gold and silver to create her unique look. We didn't do a bridal trial before hand, so I asked questions throughout to make sure I provided exactly what she was looking for. She loved it and even came back to participate in my makeup workshop months later!

Waterproof Airbrush Makeup

For her and her party's foundation, I used airbrush makeup by Kett Cosmetics for flawless, natural coverage. 

Elegant Bridal Makeup and Hair - Nikki's wedding in Houston

Nikki was a beautiful and kind bride I was lucky enough to work on. The wedding day prep went very smoothly due in part to us having a bridal trial previously.  For brides like Nikki who aren't used to wearing makeup, a bridal trial ahead of time allows the bride to get comfortable with the way she looks and feels wearing makeup.  Even just filling in eyebrows and covering up dark under eye circles can be a shock to someone who is not used to looking that way. It is also a good time to test out wearing false lashes, which can be a bit of an adjustment when its new. As a makeup artist, a bridal trial is helpful for a couple of reasons. It allows me time to look at the trial pictures and really evaluate what worked and what could be enhanced, adjusted, etc. I also keep a detailed list of what products and techniques were used in the trial and any changes we may decide to make so that both the bride and I can feel confident that the result will be exactly what she wants.


For Nikki's makeup, I used Kett Hydro airbrush makeup to apply her foundation and subtle contours. This foundation is just excellent for on and off camera. It provides a natural transfer-proof finish, yet it can cover up blemishes, scars, and tattoos easily. Under her eyes I used my foolproof MAC Pro Longwear concealer. This stuff is long lasting, full coverage, and does not settle into creases. She chose to wear a pair of soft feathery lashes to bring out her eyes without being too dramatic, and I think they did just that. For her hair, she chose to keep her hair off her shoulders and paired with a birdcage veil for an elegant look that I think ties in so well with her venue and dress.


Beautiful Outdoor Wedding in Victoria, TX

Makeup for Outdoor Wedding

I had the pleasure a few months back of doing makeup for Brandi and her bridal party. Everyone requested airbrush makeup. The wonderful thing about airbrush makeup is that you can achieve a super sheer to an absolutely full coverage face without ever looking or feeling like there is a thick layer of makeup sitting on your skin. The airbrush makeup I use is Kett Hydro foundation, which produces a natural matte finish to the skin. For those who prefer a dewier finish, I use an additional spray to give the skin a nice sheen. The setting for Brandi's wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and took place in Victoria, TX. Photos by Studio Eleven.


The most important feature (in my opinion) of any makeup look is your foundation. Whats the key to amazing looking foundation? Great skin.

Andie's Wedding in Hunstville, TX

Bridal Makeup - Red Lips

One of my sweetest clients, Andie, got married in Hunstville this summer. Even though I work primarily out of Houston and Spring, I will frequently travel out of town for weddings! For Andie's makeup I applied a thin layer of Kett Fix creme foundation, which is completely water proof - meaning no tear streaks! For her under eye concealer, I used MAC prolongwear concealer. I love this concealer because holds up well in heat and humidity. On her lips I used one of my favorite red lipsticks from Revlon. Bright lips bring so much color and life to the face, and look absolutely beautiful in photos!

A tip for making your bright colored lip last long, even if you aren't using a long lasting stain, is to fill in your entire lip with a similar colored lip liner then blot with a tissue. Apply the lipstick on top, and even if the lipstick eventually wears off, your lip liner will remain!


Natural Bridal Makeup Looks

Natural Bridal Beauty

Soft warm tones in the eyes, lips, and blush are great for bohemian brides.

For those who want a softer look that is still elegant, stick to neutral colors on the eyes and lips, and add some soft feathery false lashes.

Beautiful Bride - Brittney's Wedding in Houston, TX

Here are the pictures from my bride, Brittney's, wedding in Houston, TX. Her beautiful photos were taken by Ama by Aisha.  Brittney was such a sweet bride with the most gorgeous green eyes! For her makeup, I used Kett Hydro Airbrush foundation to create a flawless base that doesn't look thick or heavy. I also used the airbrush to subtly emphasize the contours of her face.  For her eyes I did a very classic and timeless look that has just the right amount of drama to bring out the beautiful color in her eyes. Enjoy the pictures!


Makeup for Jemma & Seth's Wedding

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to do makeup for Jemma and her maid of honor, Chelsea, on her wedding day. The pictures just came back and they look beautiful! The photographer was Rapheal from Digital Icon Photography. If you're getting married in the Houston Area and are looking for a photographer for your wedding, go visit his website at


For her makeup, Jemma wanted to look made up and elegant since it was a formal occasion. She left the details up to me. She's already a beautiful girl, so enhancing her features was easy.  I chose to add some drama to her eyes with lashes and smoked out liner. For the lips I went with a soft pink to go with the pink colors in her decorations. On her face I used Kett Hydro airbrush foundation. Its a great foundation for achieving sheer to full coverage and gives a natural matte finish.

The ceremony was held outside in a small intimate setting and was absolutely beautiful. Thank you Jemma and Seth for letting me be a part of your special day!
