Love Never Fails :: Beth & Brody featured on Southern Weddings

22 Aug

Shortly after being married, beautiful Beth was diagnosed with Leukemia … sending her and her new husband into a tailspin of emotions. A handful of us are so lucky to have met this amazing couple during their six-month anniversary photo shoot! I mean seriously, look at those gorgeous sparkling eyes!

Back in March, I had the pleasure of doing makeup for an awesome shoot for Pura Vida Salon during one of their Kevin Murphy technique and product training workshops. Makeup by yours truly, hair styling the talented team of Kevin Murphy pros and Pura Vida Salon.

And enjoy this special feature on the hair and makeup from the shoot. I incorporated the pink/gold theme into a shimmery, fully lined eye in deep burgundy, lighter pink and gold with glowing skin and bronze cheeks. Her hair is a little haphazard, a little messy, but big, full and loaded with volume.

Outdoor Photoshoot with Ben Q. Photography

5 Jun

Know what I love? Spur of the moment-ness … pretty models … outdoor photoshoots … White Rock Lake …. BEN Q. PHOTOGRAPHY. Which is why I am so in love with this shoot! We didn’t plan it, it just came together organically, and it is so beautiful and effortless! Ben was on a quest to start working with photo film (rather than digital), so we set out to White Rock Lake with our model (the gorgeous Caressa Carter) to start shooting! Her hair and makeup was so soft, summery and subtle. The no-makeup makeup look, with an emphasis on a punchy, sweet, coral-watermelon colored lip! Enjoy!

Nicole’s Underwater Bridal Session with Amy Karp Photography

2 May

I love my job. Seriously. And I love being stretched and pushed creatively and professionally outside of what’s comfortable and routine. Which is why, when Nicole booked me for her wedding and then told me she wanted her makeup done for her underwater bridal photoshoot with none other than Amy Karp, my heart skipped a beat!

Wedding day waterproof is a must, obviously. But tears of joy are no comparison to an hour-long dunk in a swimming pool, so this was going to take some research and a little trial and error before our shoot! With just the right products, I was able to create Nicole’s flawless bridal look and literally sealed it in so she was free to dance and play in the water with her makeup fully in tact. Just take a look at these images. So beautiful, whimsical and vivid. So original!

Cheers to our bride Nicole and the forerunner in underwater wedding photography, Amy Karp!

Photoshoot {Phantom of the Opera}

4 Sep

I am LOVING these seriously haute images I just received from a photo shoot I did makeup and hair for last week! Inspired by the classic, Phantom of the Opera and shot at the historic Majestic Theater in downtown Dallas.

Our beautiful model (and actual bride-to-be) took on the leading role with soft matte eyes in a neutral peach, glam false lashes loaded with mascara, fierce eyebrows and a vampy, plum-red lipstick that stole the show!
