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.

DSCN5259Suzanne’s Wedding at Mountain top Inn in Chittenden VT

Since I spent much of my childhood visiting my grandfather’s farm in Vermont, I’ll always have a soft spot for it, so when Suzanne reached out to me for her June 2014 destination wedding in Chittenden, I was psyched.

Suzanne specified that she preferred a very natural, easy-breezy makeup look but that her bridesmaids could get whatever they pleased. I loved the bold colors and beautifully styled elements of this wedding and am excited to share the photos & video from her day!

Ceridwen’s Commander’s Mansion Wedding Featured on Style Me Pretty

Anyone who follows my work knows that I serve up a lot of natural-looking makeup. Many of my clients are not everyday makeup wearers, and don’t want a look that’s too “showy” or overtly glamorous. That means keeping the complexion soft (with freckles and beauty marks fully visible), the eyes defined but not noticeably decorated, and the lips and cheeks slightly blushed for the camera, but not “painted on.”

In the industry, we call it clean beauty. While I unabashedly love breaking out my colors and getting creative, clean beauty (or in some cases, clean beauty with a subtle “pop” somewhere on the face) is one of my absolute favorite things to do. So when I met Ceridwen, I could tell we were a great match. Her bridal look was all about the skin and the cheeks – and her beautiful smile. And her wedding was gorgeous! I was not at all surprised to see it featured on Style Me Pretty.
