    {Clean Beauty w/ B.}

    I have been really digging clean, simple no-makeup makeup looks. I love it when the skin looks healthy, glowing and very well loved. There is just something so beautiful about a clean look. One that enhances a woman’s natural beauty instead of covering it up. This is exactly what we went for with this shoot. My model, B, looked radiant. She already had beautiful skin, but in these photos, she appeared to have this lovely natural glow coming from within as opposed to it being applied on top of the skin. Only a few products were used here in the first look. M A K E U P    B…

    {The Glow}

    To be honest with you, for this shoot with A. I didn’t have much of a plan. All I knew is that I wanted her skin to GLOW! That was my main objective. I let creativity take control and I just played with makeup on a gorgeous face! I achieved a lovely dew on her face and added a touch of shimmer to catch the light just right. It probably looked way too over the top in person, but it photographed beautifully! I’ve also been obsessed with playing with different lip colors lately, so A. wore 3 different lip colors for this beauty shoot. M A K E U P…

    {Glossy Lids}

    When I thought about the look I wanted to create on J, I knew I wanted her eyes to be the showstopper. I wanted them soft, yet sultry. Slightly smoked, but not too dark. We skipped concealer for this look and I only used the tiniest amount of foundation underneath her eyes. I kept the brows pretty natural and lightly applied a small amount of brow powder. The lips were nude for the first part of the shoot and I used quite a bit of blush on her cheeks. Later, I wanted to kick it up a notch with a pair of wet, glossy lids. Everything came together nicely and J.…

    {Pop of Color} Summertime Look

    Summer is just around the corner and it’s a great time to experiment with fun, bold pops of color. Hot pink lips, bright orange lips… why not both? For this look, K. rocked a bright pink and orange ombre lip with a small wing on the eye. We kept everything else pretty clean and simple because we wanted the lips to POP! Here is breakdown of this look: {Skin Prep} Sonia Roselli Beauty Water Balm Skin Prep {Corrector + Concealer} MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20 + NC25 {Foundation} Bobbi Brown BBU Palette Golden + Warm Honey {Powder} Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder {Cheeks + Highlight} MAC Cremeblend Blush in Brit Wit; The Balm…

    {Amber} Senior Portrait Session w/ Tiffany Le Photography

    Last month I worked with photographer, Tiffany Le, to give Amber the ultimate pampering session! She got her hair and makeup done and then was styled and photographed by Tiffany. Last week, I received the gallery from Amber’s session and these photos are absolutely breathtaking! Amber looked gorgeous and she was glowing! For this shoot, my goal was to enhance Amber’s natural beauty and draw attention to her beautiful eyes. I decided to go with a soft smokey eye with a touch of purple in the crease, a nude lip, and a light blush on the cheeks. Amber has great brows so I kept them as natural as possible, but filled…

    Let’s Talk About Prom!

    Let’s chat about prom for a bit! Prom is a super exciting time for most high school juniors and seniors! Aside from graduation, prom may be one of the most important days in high school! I still remember my junior prom like it happened yesterday. Let’s not talk about how long that’s been! I remember all the excitement that surrounded prom, spending hours getting all glammed up, and doing makeup on a few friends! Last year, I had a blast doing makeup on my prom clients as well as a Prom Fashion Show at Canyon High School in Santa Clarita. I loved seeing how pumped these girls got to have their…
