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.

Sarah’s Rustic Chic Wedding at the Hampshire College Red Barn

Boy, does the camera love Sarah! This blonde bombshell from South Carolina chose the rustic Red Barn for her midsummer New England destination wedding. No stranger to makeup, she requested a dramatic yet ethereal look for her ceremony: smoky eyes, sculpted cheekbones, and soft pink lips. (I also had fun working with her sister, who loves a heavily lined eye and lush lashes.)

Britpunk-inspired styled shoot at The Mount in Lenox MA

What would it look like if a pair of rough-around-the-edges, urbanite musician lovebirds got hitched in the bucolic, beautiful Berkshires? The Mount was the perfect fit for this styled shoot: not only are the house and grounds stunningly beautiful (even in February, when our shoot took place), but the theme of contrast is evident throughout Wharton’s writing, as well as her own life. We were inspired to incorporate hints of an underground movement that sought to challenge the social elite (chiefly, the punk rock movement of 1970′s London) – and we like to think she’d approve!
