Maxine's Graduation Events

Maxine's mother called me for Maxine's hair and makeup for both her elementary school graduation as well as a dance she was having the following week as part of the graduation celebrations. Laura did Maxine's hair and I did her makeup for both events. We loved Maxine! She is such a sweet girl and she was so fun to chat with. We actually loved her whole family as they're such nice, good people. By the way, Maxine is also SUPER smart and got a scholarship to a fancy school in NYC for next year. Congratulations Maxine! 

For Maxine's makeup we did partial services the first time for graduation (just eyes) and then full services for the dance (face too) without fake lashes. Can you see the difference? πŸ’—

Airbrush for Patricia's Engagement Party πŸ’

Patricia originally found me on Wedding Wire and we chatted through there. But then, her sister recommended she reach out to someone who did a friend's wedding 5 years ago. That someone ended up being me, too, lol! So I suppose we were meant to meet!

I airbrushed Patricia, her mother, and her sister for Patricia's engagement party at Pompeii Restaurant. She and her sister had gotten airbrush before, but they were apprehensive because they said it made them look very pale. If you've also had this experience, it's likely the makeup artist you used may have used a color that didn't match your skin tone. Or, used a reflective powder over it. They were so happy with the airbrush results. I loved meeting all 3 of them, they were so hospitable and sweet! Congratulations, Patricia! πŸ’

Twinning Spring Bridesmaids Nadia & Kamla 🌸🌷

This #tbt post is about Nadia and Kamla, who reached out to me last year because they were bridesmaids in their friend's wedding and wanted their hair and makeup done prior to the wedding. Since their friend was having an Indian wedding, they had already been celebrating for days. This was Day 3 of the celebration!

The wedding was a year ago this week, so Nadia's spring allergies were really bothering her. Good thing most of my products are waterproof and skin sensitive! She told me later everything felt great and stayed on nicely  which I was so happy about! Nadia went for a beautiful, classic natural look while Kamla went for a sexy red lip and glam eyes. Kamla and I went back and forth through emails discussing great red options and she picked a gorgeous color! I always tell clients if they're going to go for a bold lip color it's smart to purchase one to reapply throughout the day. These best friends wanted to do a "twinning hairstyle" which was so sweet! They brought Laura a picture of the look they wanted and Laura recreated it beautifully. Laura and I LOVED Nadia and Kamla and we truly felt like we made friends that day. πŸ‘―πŸ‘―

Marilin's Bridal Trial

It was great meeting Marilin and chatting with her about her upcoming wedding. She's not getting married for another year-plus but I always say it's great getting things done earlier than later for your wedding. When I was getting married my husband and I tried to get as much done as early as possible too, so I can certainly relate. We were discussing her June 2018 wedding and once again I was dreaming about the summer, especially with this storm that's coming tomorrow. I miss the sun and the warm weather. 

Marilin had a couple previous trials that she was unhappy with. So we went slowly step by step so we can achieve her perfect look for her. I was SO happy because she was so happy with the results! What do you think of Marilin's makeup?!
