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.
Hewmun and her husband John live in Boston but tied the knot at their gorgeous summer retreat on a blueberry farm tucked away in the Berkshires. The rustic setting couldn’t have been more perfect for a bride who described her personal style as “unconventional, with a touch of glamour.” (I’m all about that!)
We decided that the touch of glamour, makeup-wise, would be a custom-mixed pinky-red lipstick, which looked gorgeous on her (and coordinated nicely with her bouquet), while Hewmun’s mom opted for a very subtle look. I also did makeup for the maid of honor and a little bit for the handsome groom!
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.
Thanks to the brides who have reviewed me on WeddingWire and shared their experience with so many others, I am pleased to announce that Makeup Artistry by Liz has won the Couples’ Choice Award for 2015, in the Beauty & Health category. This is my fourth year in a row.
