You can relax and enjoy your event, knowing you look
your absolute best and your makeup will last the entire wedding. From the ceremony to
Using waterproof makeup, long-wearing products, the correct colors, and technique of the makeup artist you choose can assure that.
Photographs will capture your wedding forever, you want to make it perfect. On your wedding day you need beautiful makeup for photos, video, a large audience, and up-close and personal. A Bride's makeup needs to look great outdoors in bright sunlight, as well as indoors and evening lighting. Choosing a makeup artist with experience in all these areas is key.
Makeup is a very personal thing - it is an expression of individual personality and style. It should enhance and improve who we are - never mask it. On your wedding day, you want to look like you - only a more beautiful and radiant you. A Bride shoulf look fresh and beautiful. Never over done.
When I meet a bride for a trial/consultation before her wedding - I talk to her. Do you wear red lipstick every day? Pink gloss? Or, are you a Burt's Bees girl? I get a sense of her style and personality and listen to what she envisions for herself on her wedding day. Then, I begin the makeup application.
The Bride's wedding dress plays a
pivotal role - it sets the stage. Is the dress beaded? Satin? Classic or Modern?
White? or Ivory?
Is your style Whimsical? Romantic? Or, more Formal?
I will ask about the decor of the room, the color of the flowers, the wardrobe of the bridal party and the time of the event. Bring along any photographs, magazine articles, fabric swatches, or whatever inspires you. Feel free to check out my Pinterest boards and pin wedding makeup looks that you like, and I can get an idea of your makeup style. This is a great way to put a face on your ideas.
All these elements, combined with skin tone, and hair color - are the factors that decide the finished look.
During my career as a makeup artist, I have done the faces of countless models and industry professionals, but, I have to say, that nothing gives me more personal satisfaction than making a bride feel confident and beautiful on her wedding day.
Please contact me well in advance regarding my availability on the date you have chosen for your wedding or special occasion. I will travel to most places in the Chicago area, North Shore, and surrounding suburbs. I look forward to making your wedding beautiful.
