My 2015 calendar is looking pretty busy but I am always looking for new clients. If you have a wedding, party, special occasion, photo shoots, etc I am available for on location bookings. My work includes makeup application, false lash application, soft romantic hair styling and private makeup lessons. Please read some client reviews by clicking here where you can view some recent photos and feedback about my makeup services.
I use only professional and luxury makeup from Make Up Forever, Dior, Nars, Becca Cosmetics, Cover FX and more which photograph beautifully.
I recently had the pleasure of doing makeup for Louraine, a beautiful bride who celebrated her wedding with longtime love Chris at Hotel Maya in Long Beach. Being a Socal native, it was surprising I had never seen this unique Hotel with a serene view of the famous Queen Mary and Long Beach Harbor. Thankfully, the temperatures dropped from the 100 degree heat wave in the weeks prior allowing the quiet summer sky look over the day so everyone in attendance could enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. Louraine found my makeup services on Thumbtack and we immediately clicked with her joyful laugh and sincere personality. She sent me a few first images from her photographer, Jose Maestas which all look gorgeous and I had to share.
Adding final touches before photos plus a great shot of my beauty arsenal.
I brought out Louraine’s beautiful eyes and kept the skin glowing, fresh & flawless.

Is it me or has this last month been extra busy? I feel like I haven’t had a moment to reflect on some of my latest clients. Thankfully, my calendar has been filled with many new makeup clients for prom, weddings and special occasions taking me all over SoCal with all my favorite luxury makeup favorites in my kit within the last few weeks. I just wanted to do a quick post with a few of my favorite makeup looks I’ve done:
Above is a couple soft eye looks for a wedding coordinator, bridesmaid and mother of the bride. I’m planning to post a full makeup post on this bridal party once I get some photos back from their amazing photographer. I used mostly Anastasia Beverly Hills, Chantecaille, Dior and Becca Cosmetics to achieve the looks above.
My client was celebrating her birthday and usually wears a soft neutral work makeup. She said ‘let’s go for it’ and we played with jewel tones to complement her beautiful skin. I used a combination of OCC Makeup, Chantecaille, Urban Decay and Makeup Forever to create her ultra-glam look.
This natural beauty has gorgeous eyes and wanted a celebrity inspired makeup look. I used soft bronze and rich browns from Cargo Cosmetics to accentuate her eyes, Tarte Foundation and Dior on her lips. She was ready for Prom!
More to come with photos of my recent makeup work. Are you ready for the weekend? Happy Friday!
Good morning, mine is starting with an iced chai latte along with a sesame bagel with tomatoes, cream cheese and lemon pepper that I devoured before a photo could be taken from Grounds Bakery in Long Beach. It’s a totally addictive breakfast spot!
I’m spending the morning at my little girl’s dance class with a couple trusty Chantecaille essentials. (Had to throw in a little luxe beauty somewhere!)
I’m wearing my favorite tinted moisturizer; Chantecaille Just Skin Antismog Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 in shade Wheat and Chantecaille’s Luminous Gloss in shade Framboise.
