Michelle’s Wedding

It was a great time doing Michelle, and her sister Raquel’s, makeup a couple weeks ago.  I have done Raquel’s makeup a couple times before and I was so grateful when I was suggested to Michelle on her wedding day.  I can’t wait to see the professional pictures!

Holyfield Wedding

When my friends get married and ask me to be a small part of their big day, I am so grateful and excited to do makeup!  Melanie and I were former coworkers, and kept in touch.  I loved that I was asked months in advance to do the makeup for both the beautiful bride and her mom!

The look for both women was a natural, with enough for pictures, look.  Eye shapes and contours were focused on without feeling overdone.

A Look Back: Why I Became A Makeup Artist

81569b1dd2b3d320e8be19add1137038

Of all the years of doing makeup, the number one question I get asked is why I became a makeup artist.   The answer seems to roll off my tongue now, but it was not always that way.  “I used to have severe problematic skin” is my response.

Looking back on that simple phrase now helps me to remember how far I have come.  Makeup gave me confidence.  It still does.  I put on makeup for me.  So that I feel better.  And maybe that little bit of makeup helps show the world how I feel on the inside.  I became really good at covering my face during those hard times.  I learned to focus on the features I wanted to show, and cover what I wasn’t happy about.

As anyone with troubled skin can probably attest, it’s frustrating.  At times depressing.  You just want people to see you as you see yourself- past the blemishes and redness.  My saint of a mom offered help, vitamins (choosing the natural path over pharmaceuticals), and countless other methods to get me through the years of struggling with my skin.  After several products, crazy methods and philosophies, and a Clarisonic (I highly recommend!), the troubled areas started to clear up.

Makeup can be so much (or so little) to many people.  Some people like the natural look.  Others the option to add glitter or long, winged out eye liner.  For me, I always opted for the more natural look.  Enhance but not overpower.  And that is the style of makeup I tend to do.  Enhance the beauty that already exists with each client’s face I touch.  It has taken me a long time to accept that maybe I will be skipped over for a job because my style of work is not “Instagram makeup”.  I have owned the art I create and have been rewarded with repeat clients, referrals and positive testimonials. I have seen how makeup made me feel, and to help someone see what they already possess is why I became a makeup artist.

That is what is important.  Be true to yourself, no matter what that means.   Live fearlessly.  You can be what you want to be!

Celebrating A Cousin’s Wedding

I was excited and honored to be asked to do my cousin’s wedding makeup for her big day in Sedona, Arizona.  Kate chose a very natural look with focus on her eyes.  And in true Nault woman fashion, she applied her own mascara.  (Us Nault gals have a thing about our lashes!)  I loved it!  It was a beautiful wedding ceremony with a gorgeous bride.  The Sedona red rocks made for a stunning back drop to complete the pictures.

The Bishop Wedding

The day was here to do makeup for Sara and Jesse’s backyard wedding.  The dress was made my Jennyvi Dizon Couture and hair was done by Jenny Strebe.  It was a beautiful November day in Arizona and a perfect day for a wedding.
