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.

A Royal Wedding

Whew! It has been awhile since I wrote.  It’s been a busy few months.  Lots of photoshoots, weddings and Western X work.  

As much as people have been sick of hearing about the royal wedding, I think it is a great news story.  A bit excessive, maybe, but it was refreshing to hear a story that didn’t involve killing or anything negative.  I was doing makeup for a wedding party which had a few girls from London.   We were discussing the craze that was going on in the states about the royal wedding, and they said there was nothing to that extent going on in London.   It was interesting to me that it is not going to directly impact the US, and yet it was a bigger deal here. 

All of the buzz about what dress Kate was going to wear, her hair, jewelry, it all came together.  A classic dress- lace covered sleeves designed by Sara Burton, the creative director for Alexander McQueen.   Simple hair.  Makeup, which I read, she did herself.  Good for her!  She seems very down to earth.   Throughout the entrance into the church and the ceremony, she seemed very posed and ready to take over the throne in the future. 

For all the wedding details and pictures

It’s been fun, 2010. Hello 2011!

I hope 2010 has been an abundant and amazing year!  I can’t believe it  is coming to an end.  Time flies!  I am so grateful for all the opportunities I have been a part of this year, and all the people that have pushed me to better my skills as a makeup artist.  I truly appreciate it!

AIRBRUSH MAKEUP:  Continuing to always expand my knowledge  and love of all things makeup, I have started doing airbrush makeup.  It photographs beautiful and creates a flawless complexion.  A great addition to the wedding makeup package or model look!   

WESTERN X: Being able to work doing makeup and hair for Western X, and now Lobo, has been great!  An amazing cast and crew that works hard to make this series a success.  The feedback has been positive about episodes 1-3 and we are all anxiously waiting to see the rest of season 1!  I’m looking forward to learning more special effects makeup as well.

WEDDING MAKEUP: Wedding work has always been one of my favorite makeup applications to do.  This year I expanded my bridal clientele.  Every woman wants to feel beautiful on their wedding day, and I am so grateful I am asked to be a part of that celebration. 

PHOTOSHOOTS: A big thank you to all the photographers I worked with this year- old and new, who helped me expand my portfolio and create diversity amongst my pictures.   

 I look forward to a 2011 full of more great opportunities!  I wish the same for you and your family!



Welcome to my blog! Please bear with me while I get my thoughts organized with my makeup photos. 

It has been a great wedding season thus far.  Along with photoshoots and Western X the webseries premieres, it has been an amazing few months!  I’m looking to the next few months for all the great things to come!
