Ancala Country Club Wedding: Lydia

I don’t think I have said it enough times lately- I love doing wedding makeup! There is something about showing up for someone on one of the most important days of their lives, having a great time and being creative.  I have the best brides!

Lydia reached out to me as a referral.  I am so happy she did!  I really loved getting to know her and her wedding party.  Lydia looked GORGEOUS in her dress from Laurie’s Bridal, and her backdrop at Ancala Country Club was picturesque.

     

A Polished Wedding: Meagan

This was the second time I did makeup for Meagan.  The first was when she was a bridesmaid in her friend Megan’s wedding months before.  I loved that Meagan loved her makeup so much that she asked me to be a part of her big day.  When we did her trial, we kept it clean and natural. On the wedding day I added a darker crease and more shimmer on the eye lid.  We made the lashes a bit more bold too!

T-shirt Tuesday! Audria Trapp

screenshot_20161010-195759_resized

Audria and I met at a workshop in downtown Phoenix and even though we didn’t talk much during the workshop, getting to know her while planning her tshirt Tuesday makeup application showed me why our paths crossed. Audria was real, honest, so friendly and welcoming when she opened the door for me to do makeup. I felt like we had known each other for much longer than our meeting at the workshop. We related to each other and as a woman, it’s nice to know we are not alone in our thoughts. Audria is inspiring- a woman, a mom, a teacher and a student. We all wear so many hats and our strength is shown through all that we do.

A little about Audria:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: I started going to Sutra Midtown 2 years ago when I was a new mama and I wanted to get back to feeling good about my body. I was really drawn to the community and good vibes that Sutra has to offer. In 1 month I will be completing my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program there. Being apart of this studio has fostered tremendous personal growth, new friendships, and great opportunities. I started rocking The Zen Bird headbands and met the owner Marian at a sutra event by asking her if she wanted her picture taken with her friend. I now work for her part time, and that connection has led me to meeting you at one of her workshops. Everything I’m wearing is representative of the power of connection, which is one of my passions in life.

Tell me a little about yourself: I am a mama and a wife, a believer in the every day miraculous, and a lover of music, food, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (if you didn’t catch that already). I’m actually watching “The Night Man Cometh” as I write this. I am a military brat, born in Florida, but consider myself to be an Arizona native now. I’m obsessed with house plants and a dream of mine is to have an indoor jungle in my home. I (sort of) speak Italian and can’t wait to go back to Italy someday! Another dream of mine is to open a bakery / yoga studio with my mom who is a baker and cake decorator. How amazing would it be to do yoga as you smell delicious cakes being baked?! A girl can dream, right?

T-shirt Tuesday! Luana Joya Lucia

Munkee_0808140128_resized

Luana was one of the first people I did makeup on when I moved to Arizona, and I have since done her makeup for several events and photo shoots.  Not to mention Luana gives phenomenal massages and energy treatments that leave you feeling lighter and more focused. It was wonderful to do her makeup for this Strong Beautiful Woman series!

Take a moment for yourself and soak up the GOOD, HEALING energies from Luana.  Santi Sacred

 

A little about Luana:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: The animal print on this shirt reminds me that I am never to be tamed! Why would I want to be boxed in, shackled and chained, only to look from the inside out without freedom to fully explore, fully radiate, and allow my soul to illuminate its natural light .. the wild, wonderful, untamed woman which is my very being, my essence, is likened to the wild, wonderful, tigress that we see in the raw nature that I value, respect, adore and practice in mirroring daily.

Tell me a little about yourself: My name is Luana Joya Lucia. I am a Healing Arts Professional of ‘Santi Sacred Healing Arts’ practicing peace and calm through breath, mentality, heart and soul, and living in the ‘right this very second’ way of positive thought 🙂 Practice, Practice, Practice! I was born in Colorado and miss the coolness, easy breezy, clouds softly hanging from the sky. I am the mother of 3 grown men; one of whom has transitioned to ‘the other side’. My 2 other sons have gifted me with 3 amazing grandchildren with whom I enjoy everyday within my heart and visit as much as is allowed.

I am currently in the midst of coining a massage modality called ‘Etherealiti Energy Healing’, teaching and sharing through videos and perhaps a book. I came across an amazing skin care line called “Beautify” which I include in most of my massage sessions as a medium for the ‘Santi’ ( meaning peace ) face massage. I am revving myself up to move to a cooler climate within the next year or so with my puppy Aja ( meaning Forest Goddess ) and 12 feline pets.

Like YOU, I am a Strong Beautiful Woman!

Shannon+Josh: A Classic Wedding

I was so honored to do makeup for Shannon’s wedding.  She was lovely and doing her makeup was a breeze!  I love these images.  The bride.  The backdrop.  The LOVE.  Classically beautiful.

T-shirt Tuesday! Erin Collins

InstaSize_0711133056

I met Erin at a vision board workshop with The Zen Bird.   We hit it off when she found out I was a makeup artist and wanted to update her makeup bag. I was honored she felt comfortable with me to take her through the process of finding the perfect makeup.  When I did Erin’s makeup and lesson, we found out we felt the same way about a lot of life’s trials and tribulations.  It reinforced the fact that even when we feel alone in our thoughts, there is undoubtedly someone else who can relate.  Trust the process and the people you need to attract in your life will find their way.

A little about Erin:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?:  Well, we discussed wearing my favorite t-shirt, but I am a girl who loves a dress so Stephanie let me do it my way.  Wearing a dress is new for me.  There was a time in my life I may have even considered it an insult to be so fem.  When I was younger I wasn’t much for acting feminine.  I was more tomboyish as a way to be tough, as a way to be strong.  There is something to be said for the things in this world we choose to associate with weakness.  But things are different now, and I love being a strong, beautiful woman in a dress.  I realize now that being feminine is very much about strength and courage!  I am thankful to be living that life now, and to be surrounded by amazing women who feel the same way.

Tell me a little about yourself:  I am 32 yrs old, and I have finally embraced who I am.  I am lucky to have friends and family who love me, who support my purpose.  I am lucky to know my purpose.  I am also a person who knows what it is to have experienced darkness and pain, to the extent I thought this world would be better without me in it.  I can tell you those moments were not the end for me.  They were just the beginning.   I have the pleasure of working with kids, regularly hiking and doing yoga, and witnessing a sunset on a regular basis.  I have been lucky to both create and just feel simply blessed with a life I love.  My favorite lesson is to NEVER FEEL STUCK.  Change has often been my ticket to hope.  Thank you Stephanie for reminding me I am strong, I am beautiful!

T-shirt Tuesday! Karen Moore

InstaSize_0302150623

One of my most favorite things is reconnecting with people after our paths cross again.  That is exactly what happened with Karen.  I met her on one of my first makeup jobs here in Arizona for a photo shoot she was modeling.  She is stunningly beautiful and was so welcoming to be around.  I recently met up with Karen again after a facebook conversation. Have to love social media!  Check out her growing It Works business and get wrapped!

A little about Karen:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: Comfy. Flattering. Favorite Team!

Tell me a little about yourself:  Wife- Wrap Girl- Fur Mom- Entrepreneur- Adventure- Fun- Friends!

T-shirt Tuesday! Kori Martz

Munkee_0414151741

How Kori and I did not become friends from the day I stepped foot in this great state of Arizona is beyond me.  (Us Michiganders flock together, not to mention like minded people…)  I met her when I was working for a cosmetics brand and felt (like I did with her sister Kiley) that I had known her forever. We hit it off and no matter how much time passes between conversations or meetings, we pick up right where we left off.  I am always grateful for Kori’s friendship, smile and giving heart.  The world can always use more GOOD.

A little about Kori:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: I love my striped shirt because it isn’t my usual black T-go-to. I love to surprise everyone when I wear something other than mono-chromatic clothing. What’s not to love?! It’s comfy and classy!

Tell me a little about yourself:  My name is Kori, I love life and denim. I have a passion for makeup and skincare. I’ve spent the past 10+ years working for the top makeup and skincare lines, but when Grandma needed help, I moved back to Michigan to give her full time care. I wouldn’t change this one-on-one time with her for anything.  I love chocolate, travel, animals, my puppy nieces; Neen and Knuck, and my family. I think living life fully is the only way to do it, so I am spending time with granny driving around our beautiful state of Michigan and making beautiful memories.

Live Your Happy.
