Who Am I?
I am absolutely in love with art, makeup, color stories and making women feel beautiful. I may have an obsession with telling the story of your wedding through your beauty styling (we can blame my theatrical design background for that). I want to know your dressmaker, florist, color palette, style, fashion icons, and your personality. I understand that your aesthetic and style is personal and that you are choosing me to represent your best "you" for your event. I am skin and eyes focused always, but I do love a bold lip when the moment is right. My favorite styles to execute are glowing, modern and red carpet inspired. Clients have referred to my work as "Victoria Secrets" or "Desert Sexy"... I gladly accept both answers.
Every day I am thankful to collaborate and work with the talented group of artists within my company, as well as amazing vendors throughout AZ and beyond.
Who is My Client?
1st, you love a glowing and neutral/earthy color palette and want to tell a story through your beauty styling. You do not want to look like a Cookie Cutter Basic Bride and are passionate about your wedding day aesthetic, while being open to entertaining new and collaborative ideas to heighten the vision. You are willing to hear suggestions about skin/hair prep that will help make you picture perfect.
Furthermore, you are not afraid to wear some makeup and have some fun on the wedding day!
