Love is Sweet: Valentine’s Day 2019

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love is in the air.  I love this time of year.  Spreading JOY, LOVE and GOOD.

Doing small acts of kindness continue to spread only positive vibes.

These high school seniors ROCKED this Valentine’s inspired shoot.  These girls have developed friendship and respect for other girls from high schools all over the valley.  It was so cool to see how everyone opened up and had a great time!

Wedding Shoot in Pine Top

I am always honored when asked to be a part of Jennyvi Dizon Couture shoots.  And this shoot was no exception.  The skills of each artist- hair, photography, floral design, accessories- came together beautifully.  The beauty of the woods surrounding, coupled with the glow of the Pine Top sunlight made for the perfect backdrop.  The freshly fallen snow created the final touch to this gorgeous wedding photo shoot.

2012: With Gratitude and Thanks

I am so GRATEFUL to the photographers, brides, designers, models, friends, family, actors, directors and everyone who has booked me this year.  I LOVE what I do, and for you to allow me to be a part of your day or project means quite a lot.  You BELIEVED in me and my skills, and TRUSTED I was able to do the job.  

Being a makeup artist means more than showing up, flinging makeup and getting everyone dolled up.  For me, I have seen how it changes someones day, their confidence and their LIFE.  Creating with someone to achieve a look can get them into character for a role, or mentally get them ready to walk down the aisle.  Makeup, as insignificant or dramatic as the situation calls, has the power to envoke emotion and means something different to everyone.

When I started doing makeup in 2004, I had no idea how greatly it would influence my life.  For the first time I had a drive, a focus and a direction.  What started as a job became something that I question where I would be without it today.  The experience I gained through years of application and classes opened great doors for me.   I have met the most amazing individuals that have become great friends and counterparts. 

So once again I THANK YOU. I could not be here without the help of my clients and friends who support me and the work that I do.  Here’s to an abundant and optimistic 2013 for one and all!

Makeup Portfolio Updates

Here are a couple headshots and portfolio images for a model I did work on from LA. 

Natural headshot

 I love the natural look in this shot.  Seeing the models features before seeing the makeup.  Classic beauty.  

Just for fun

 An action shot with a more dramatic eye.  Going from the natural look to the smokey eye.
