This year was my second year being listed on The Knot and my second year receiving the Knot Best of Weddings! I am so grateful to everyone who took the time to leave me a review. I know when I am shopping around for ANYTHING I go to the reviews first. This is super helpful for me as a vendor and for prospective brides wanting to get other’s opinions.

Some of my 2018 brides and bridal parties..


I love looking back at the pictures and reliving all the glam and the many sweet moments. I am so lucky to work with such beautiful and warm people. Thank you thank you!

New things in 2019

2019 is going to be a busy wedding season and I can’t wait! I will be adding some new artists to the team to prepare for the larger bridal parties. I have very high standards so I make sure to bring only the best artists to help.

I am also going to be offering hair accessories available to purchase for the wedding day. I am currently adding to my collection so there will be plenty of options!

As always, I am continuing education and practicing new styles and techniques so that I can be at the top of my game. I am constantly playing with new products too to make sure that my kit is comprised of only the best performing products.

Looking forward to the many new faces of 2019. Happy holidays everyone!

Santa Barbara Wedding Makeup & Hair

I am SO excited to share these beautiful images from Janelle and Ramien's summer wedding in Santa Barbara. I have known both of them since college (go Gauchos!) and was super excited/honored to do Janelle's hair and makeup for the big day!! 

Bridal Hair & Makeup

Janelle wanted braids in her hair so to make it a little extra special we went with a double dutch braid half up style with wavy hair.

For her makeup, she left all of the details up to me! This was actually very exciting for me not only as a MUA who loves creative control but also as her friend who had been dying to do her makeup for a while now! 

Janelle has gorgeous green eyes and a lot of freckles, which I love! I kept the coverage natural and airbrushed her face with Temptu S/B foundation. I corrected/brightened under the eyes with Makeup Forever Ultra HD concealer (R22 + R30 mixed). For her eyes I used one my favorite liquid eyeshadows by Stila in the color Jezebel for a rose gold shimmer on the lids. For lashes, I applied individual clusters. Finally, for the lips I went with a classic - Creme Cup from MAC!

Everything in the wedding turned out amazing and I couldn't be happier for them. Enjoy the rest of the photos by One Love Photography

Vueset Palette Review

Vueset Tahiti Palette - Makeup Artist Tools!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE looking at other artist's kits and especially how they organize said kits ;)

I just recently purchased the Vueset Tahiti Palette from Camera Ready Cosmetics. Vueset offers several different options of empty acrylic palettes that are designed for makeup artists and hair stylists. These little containers are stack-able and perfect for condensing your makeup kit! As a professional whose makeup kit sees a lot of travel and wear, I am always looking for the best way to simplify and lighten my load. 

I'd seen Vueset containers for some time now, and since my Makeup Forever Palette that was storing my Kett foundations has finally given way, I decided to make the switch to Vueset. 

I just bought the Tahiti palette as a test for now, but I am loving it so much I am going to go back and buy some more! Looking at the palette it doesn't seem like it would hold that much - but surprisingly each well holds a full 7 grams of product! That's more than enough room for your average lipstick, and perfect for my Kett Fixx creme refill pans.

You can see that the Tahiti palette has spaces for 24 different colors. The palette is very sturdy and snaps tightly closed. I know some artists have successfully use these palettes to store their loose pigments and even cream shadows/liners, so you know its got to be air-tight!

My Rating: 5/5!
