High definition makeup tailored to the unforgiving eye of the camera
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.

Liz is simply fantastic. I was literally a blank slate for her to work with because I have a hair loss disorder and do not have any eyelashes or eyebrows. Liz brought out my best features and made me look absolutely fantastic and still like myself. My lashes and brows looked entirely natural and held up all night. Liz is talented, punctual, kind, and professional – she calmed my bridal jitters and even gave me a touch-up goodie bag! I never needed it because my makeup, including the false lashes, held up all night through tears, laughter, and lots of dancing!
After a very bad makeup trial with someone else, I had given up and decided to do my own makeup. My photographer, though, strongly recommended Liz and I am so glad I gave her a try. Liz’s makeup is flawless, she is a natural at putting everyone around her at ease and she really listens to her clients. I was married during the July heat wave – outside – and my makeup was flawless the entire day! Me & my bridesmaids aren’t normally makeup people & were nervous about looking too ‘done’ but the makeup looked natural and each of us were incredibly pleased with our look. I would recommend her to anyone!
Being a bride at 39 is a bit humbling, but when Liz was finished with me, I felt absolutely beautiful and glam. Liz did my makeup and my two teen daughters – they looked totally age appropriate and exactly like themselves. (My oldest asked for a retro look and she looked absolutely beautiful, and my 15 y.o. looked so natural and her big brown eyes just popped.) After a formal ceremony at 11am and then a rockin’ after party, I got back to our bridal suite at 1am (17 hours after application) and saw that not only did I still look fresh and my makeup still in place, my super sensitive skin never reacted to Liz’s makeup. Amazing!
I was so glad that Liz could be a part of our day! She was both friendly and professional, and I was thrilled with her work. My wife, our bridesmaids, and I do not wear a lot of makeup, so we all went to Liz with pretty vague ideas about what we wanted. Despite this, Liz was able to create looks that were exactly right for each of us. Our makeup lasted all day with no touch-ups, and our pictures looked spectacular. Hiring a makeup artist was a splurge for us, but absolutely worth it. I would recommend Liz to anyone!
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!
