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.

Melissa’s Wedding at the Salem Cross Inn in West Brookfield MA

July bride Melissa wasn’t shy about emphasizing her beautiful big brown eyes, and I always love receiving a few behind-the-scenes photos during prep (yup, that’s what individual lash clusters look like before the glue dries!) I did makeup for Melissa, her maid of honor, and both her and her groom’s moms. As you’ll see below, airbrush makeup has amazing longevity, even on hot summer days!

 

Insider Tips on Choosing the Best Makeup Artist For Your Wedding

I empathize deeply with brides-to-be. Most haven’t planned big events before, and some have never had their makeup done professionally prior to getting engaged. Suddenly they find a whole world of people ready and eager to work with them. How can you make sure you’re making the right decision? Here are some questions to answer before you sign on the dotted line.

 

Beauty Shoot with Photographer Michelle Girard

Earlier this year I teamed up with one of my favorite local photographers, Michelle Girard, to create some romantic, ethereal beauty images with a pair of local models and some accessories on loan from Bancroft Bridals. I had a blast creating clean, glowy skin, bright Spring-inspired lips and subtle, modern smoky eyes! Here are some of my favorites from our session.
