Event Makeup Artistry

Have a special occasion coming up such as senior pictures, prom, graduation, anniversary, holiday party, costume party, or perhaps a really big date? Look and feel your best by having a professional makeup artist do your makeup! Benefits include having your best skin ever, non-toxic, high quality, long-wear products, a full color selection to choose from, and complexion expert with high level artistry techniques to emphasize your best features and hide flaws.

beauty + fashion photography

Hiring a professional makeup artist is an investment in yourself, your brand and your business. A good makeup artist contributes equally with the model and photographer in the creative process and the finished shots of a photo shoot. When a model is in front of the camera they have no idea how they look, having the makeup artist work in tandem with the photographer often results in the difference between a great shot and a good shot.

Natural Makeup + Men’s Grooming

Your portfolio is the most important tool you use in the industry! Creating a camera ready look is an art form and knowledge is power. A good makeup artist works with high quality complexion products and photography artistry techniques for proper application to emphasize your best features, hide flaws, add dimension to photos, and prevent off-coloring like orange or gray skin tone, heavy look and feel, shiny complexion, or flat non-dimensional faces.

Key Makeup Artistry

Key Makeup Artistry is the creative process of planning the makeup designs for all leading and supporting models, looks, and/or actors for an entire photo/video shoot. This process includes client branding, color theory, overall look and theme of the project such as Period Piece, Classic Looks or Fashion Trending. Inspiration and vision boarding on the design, as well as coordinating with Stylists, Hair, and Makeup Teams for trials and the day of the shoot

body art + flash tattoos

Gone are the days of drawing permanent marker designs on your arm to test-run a potential tattoo. Fashion a custom-designed temporary tattoo that looks and feels like real ink, created from an image of your desired tattoo design or can also hand design your concept if you are unsure of what you want. Body painting is a form of body art. Unlike temporary tattoos, body painting is temporarily painted onto the human skin and lasts for only several hours..

makeup lesson

Are you passionate about makeup or just want to learn more about the perfect application for your eye or face shape? Or get seasonal trend updates by adding a few products to take your basic look into the next season? Then an individual lesson is perfect for you! Receive expertise instruction including a skincare consultation, full face lesson and brow design, with non-toxic, long wear products that are best suited for you and customized to your lifestyle.
