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.

Shelby’s Spring Wedding at The Hotel Northampton

While I was doing Shelby’s wedding day makeup, I asked her what she was most excited about for her day. She thought about it for a moment and said, “Singing karaoke at the reception.” My mouth dropped open and I may have started jumping up and down a little! I absolutely love that she incorporated karaoke and carnival games into her reception (and I was, quite frankly, tempted to crash!) I especially liked how everyone in her group looked elegant yet fun, with colorful statement necklaces accenting the classic little black dresses.

Honora Vineyard Shoot Featured on WellWed’s Vermont Vows

Last summer I had the pleasure of doing makeup for a styled shoot with a real-life couple at a beautiful vineyard setting in West Halifax, VT alongside an incredible team, 2 amazing dresses, lots of bright festive flowers, and a few glasses of delicious wine – yum. I had a blast creating a dewy glow and a vibrant, poppy-inspired lip for Kristin (as well as providing a little grooming for the groom!) The day was everything I could have hoped for (even the weather cooperated) and we were thrilled when Vermont Vows printed the shoot.
