Bridal Hair & Makeup

Today I received a phone call from The Knot letting me know I was a “Best of Weddings Winner” for 2013.  What an honor!  I truly love all the different clients I get to work on, but Brides are extra special clients!  I love taking care of all of my unique Brides.  It’s up to me to help them look and feel their most beautiful on their Wedding day and I take great pride in doing so.   So I thought I would do a blog post on Bridal Hair & Makeup in honor of my winning!

Lots of time and effort goes into choosing hair and makeup looks for your big day!  Some Brides prefer updos, while some prefer to wear their hair down.  Some prefer a dramatic makeup look, while some prefer a soft and natural makeup look.  Most Brides want to be comfortable on their Wedding day and just be an enhanced, slightly more glamorous version of their every day self.  I always provide thorough consultations and trials prior to a Bride’s big day so I can completely execute the perfect look for her Wedding day.

Not only do I love actual Bridal hair and makeup for a Wedding day, but I also love hair and makeup for a Bridal photo shoot!  Braids have been trending with Brides lately and I just can’t get enough of them!  On my model Kelly, pictured below, I did a pretty french braid along her face and then incorporated it into a cute bun.  Pretty, soft and shimmery makeup is one of my favorite Bridal makeup looks so I chose to do that for makeup.

Life’s a Beach

Every day I wake up extremely grateful to be able to do what I love for a living, but on this day I woke up even more grateful than usual. To be surrounded by fellow artists, on a beautiful beach doing what I love-I had to pinch myself, does it get any better than this? I think not. On top of it all, I was asked to recreate makeup and hair from my favorite generation, the 50′s. My first thought was to do the standard Marilyn curls, but then the environment became a huge factor when I realized how windy it was on the beach. Improvisation can be an artist’s best friend! After I finished the retro makeup I decided to do a side ‘do on the local actress/model, Mackenzie Conn, which luckily held up all day! With vintage swimwear provided by Mariposa’s Clothing and Accessories, and the amazing photographer, Joe Polimeni of www.polipix.com, this shoot was a success! With that being said, do what you love and love what you do.

Airbrush Makeup

Eyebrow Shaping and Eyebrow waxing at the Beauty Collective Hair Salon in Birmingham MichiganEveryone wants to be airbrushed these days. With HD quality cameras and “less” meaning “more”, airbrush makeup can be your best friend! Chances are, all the hype you’ve heard about airbrush makeup is true. Yes, airbrush makeup lasts longer and stays looking fresher. My favorite thing about the application is the softness to it and how natural it can be done. Whether it’s your Wedding day or you’re going out for a night on the town, be sure to try out airbrush makeup!
