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.










What’s new

Amy was so much fun to work with! She wanted to amp things up a bit on her wedding day with color and smokiness around her eyes. I was more than happy to oblige, and if her infectious smile is any indication, Amy loved the results (and so did her new husband!)

Subsequently, I was not at all surprised to see Amy’s wedding featured on Pretty Pear Bride last week – click the link to read their amazing love story.

I’m such a sucker for weddings that incorporate complementary colors, like Kristin’s beautifully styled summer wedding featuring bright sunflower bouquets against royal blue bridesmaids dresses – no wonder both the Wedding Colors blog and The Knot featured it! Using opposing shades is a great way to create a visual “pop,” whether you’re choosing your wedding fabrics or your makeup.
