beautiful bride with smoky plum eyeshadowLook naturally gorgeous all day, in person AND on camera

Your face will be in the spotlight on your wedding day, and looking your best - but still like yourself - will help you radiate confidence, poise, and personality. In the age of high-definition photography and video, achieving a camera-ready look requires professional makeup that is lightweight, flawlessly blended, and perfectly tailored to your unique features and style. With the proper products and application techniques, your face will stay fresh and smooth all day (and night) so you can relax and enjoy yourself – without constant touch-ups!

I am an award-winning, nationally published makeup artist trained in the art of high-definition airbrush makeup who is dedicated to helping everyday women (and men!) put their best faces forward for weddings, special events, & photography. Based in Western Massachusetts, I work on-location in Northampton, the Berkshires, Springfield, Boston, Hartford CT, Newport RI, Brattleboro VT, Manchester NH, and beyond. I also offer makeup lessons for those who wish to take their look to the next level!

As a professional artist with a flourishing media makeup career, I bring an editorial eye to every job that I do, and I don’t fall back on a cookie-cutter look that doesn’t suit the face (or the personality) that I’m working with. I work very collaboratively with clients to help them look and feel amazing from every angle and in every medium.

If you would like to look like the best version of your beautiful self, make the most of your investment in photography and video, and be able to relax and enjoy your wedding day (without having to worry about your makeup), contact me to inquire about your date.

Maria’s Wedding at The Mount in Lenox, MA

Maria came to me after seeing my work on the Berkshire Wedding Collective site, and promptly grabbed my last available June Saturday. She works in theater, and has the engaging personality to match – and she loves her makeup bold and lashes long! I used a Sephora cream lip stain in a vibrant fuchsia shade to create a long-lasting bright lip, and black eyeliner and shimmery champagne on the lids to set off her incredible blue eyes.

Mass Appeal segment: 2014 Makeup Trends

Dewy skin, gilded eyelids, berry stains, and vibrant orange lips were the topics of discussion on Monday, June 23rd on WWLP’s Mass Appeal! Here is my live TV segment, followed by my notes.

 

Glamorous bridal fashion shoot with Michelle Girard Photography

LOVE the results of this all-girl project shot on location at Open Square in Holyoke MA. I did three separate hair and makeup looks for our striking 6′-tall model: a bright purple smoky eye with a fishtail braid for a modern take on the 70s, bright red lips and winged eyes with Hollywood waves inspired by 50′s glamour, and a sculpted eye with a bouffant to hint at the 60s.
