High definition makeup tailored to the unforgiving eye of the camera

photoshoots-header

It’s true: everyday makeup products and application techniques don’t always translate well on screen. Modern cameras, both for still photography and film, are capable of picking up the tiniest flaws – and cakey, mask-like makeup or powdery, ashy skin will only make matters worse. If you’re planning a shoot for yourself or for a client, camera-ready makeup is a must.

I use professional products specifically designed for high-definition photography and film, and application techniques that blend seamlessly and eliminate the need for excess product. The result is natural-looking, softly radiant skin, gently emphasized features, and minimized flaws.

BE camera-ready

  • Liz came highly recommended & I knew it would be a match as soon as I met her. She asked how I wanted to look, and even though I did an awful job of explaining, she went to work, and afterward, I sighed with relief, looking at my own reflection in the mirror. She made me look like ME! (except slightly enhanced) I knew I could trust her the day of the wedding. She did such a wonderful job with all my girls and moms. Everything was very natural, meaning they were recognizable. Liz has a real eye for what looks good on people, and is very trustworthy. I had an all day wedding and the makeup stayed put all day, dancing and crying and all!

  • Liz was the first and last makeup artist I considered for my wedding! When I started my search (about six months out), I was impressed by her website and reviews. Once we started emailing, I was blown away by her responsiveness. Liz asked lots of questions before and during the trial to ensure my look came out the way I wanted. I loved the way I looked and felt after both the trial and the wedding. The day of the wedding, she was all set up and ready to go when I got back home from the salon. We felt totally relaxed the morning of! I would highly recommend Liz as your makeup artist!

  • Liz is a true artist who knows color and lighting, and more importantly, how makeup will look in print. She listens to what YOU want, and is eager to help create the look you want for your big day. She’s relaxed, friendly and professional, all at the same time. Liz arrived the morning of my wedding on time and ready to work with a smile on her face and a sweet, calming demeanor. I was tremendously relaxed while in her chair–a welcome feeling for a bride on her wedding day. I was excited to give Liz carte blanche, and she did not disappoint! I especially loved how she blended the colors on my eyes. We all looked fabulous (if I do say so myself) in our photos, hours after it was flawlessly applied, even through rain, crying and dancing. If you are making the investment in professional photography for your wedding, hiring Liz is a no-brainer. She books up FAST, so don’t delay. You will be so glad you did.

  • Liz Washer was amazing! She was so great to work with. Not only did my makeup look amazing, but it lasted all night long (even after shedding quite a few tears…) Liz was accommodating, knowledgeable and extremely professional. She had a great attitude and really set me at ease. I would recommend Liz Washer to anyone in need of a makeup artist for a wedding or a special event, she is absolutely the best!

  • Before I chose a date, a venue, a dress, or made any wedding related decisions other than saying “yes!” when my partner proposed, I knew I wanted Liz Washer to do my make-up. She was perfect to work with: professional, funny, and calming. More importantly, she made me look and feel fabulous. The end result: an overwhelming desire to make eyes at myself in the mirror, giddy with appreciation of my own features expertly framed, enhanced, and highlighted. Liz is a fantastic make-up artist and the best gift I gave myself on my wedding day. I would recommend her (emphatically!) to any bride!
