For Vanessa's eye makeup, I applied shimmery rose gold eye shadows with a full set of lashes. Her foundation was airbrushed on with Temptu s/b foundation for a luminous finish. Her lipstick was MAC Cremecup - one of my favorite soft pink bridal lip colors!

Gorgeous bride!!

Laguna Beach & Huntington Beach Wedding - Lillia and Will

I'm so excited to share Lillia and Will's beautiful wedding pictures by Lokitm Photography.  Their wedding was divided into two separate days with the ceremony held in the gorgeous Laguna Beach, and the reception in Huntington Beach! Lucky me, I got to get her ready twice!! 

I used Kett hydro airbrush on Lillia for even, long lasting coverage. I brought out her eyes with matte, warm brown eyeshadows and lashes for a little drama while keeping it soft. 

Also, can I just say I LOVE her tea length dress. It pairs perfectly with the shoes and the charming backdrop!

 

Thank you Lillia for choosing me as your wedding makeup and hair artist. I am so honored and happy to have met you!

AJ Cochran Houston Dynamo - Tip Out Magazine

I wanted to share some pictures from my most recent publication with Tip Out Magazine. This month's feature was Houston Dynamo defender AJ Cochran.  My job, of course, was to make up the man in such a way that doesn't look like he's wearing makeup. For those who would like some help with natural "man makeup," here is a break down of the products I used:

  • CeraVe Moisturizer (Night time w/o SPF)
  • MAC pro longwear concealer (NW30) under the eyes
  • Kett Fixx Creme (shades O3 and R3 mixed together) to conceal blemishes
  • Graftobian Dual Finish Powder Foundation to even out skin tone while maintaining a natural sheen
  • La Femme blush in "Soft Beige" applied lightly around perimeters of face to warm up complexion with a touch of bronze
  • chap stick on lips
  • MAC eyeshadow "Omega" to softly fill in brows

Here is the result.

Good luck to AJ and the rest of the Houston Dynamo on their last few games of the season! I enjoyed working with him and the rest of my team at

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!
