What inspired you to start your business?
I started my business because of what we’ve all been told “do what makes you happy”. I took this very serious as I have had so many jobs that just left me feeling like I wanted something more for myself.
I knew that I somehow wanted to incorporate making people happy into my career and one of the ways I know how to do that is by making women feel beautiful and enhancing their natural beauty. I started my makeup business as more of a hobby and it just quickly turned into a career by working really hard! I make sure I am always doing what makes me happy!
What options for customization do you offer?
I offer airbrush makeup, basic application (my favorite) and I will also use products of your own, if it is what you prefer, or if you have allergies to specific products.
If you could give one tip to couples who are planning a wedding, what would it be?
Try to enjoy the planning process. It’s a lot of fun if you can try not to stress. Remember this is a day to celebrate your love, not about which napkin matches better.
What is your one must-have item/product/tool to have on-hand when you’re working?
I always have backup mascara. I go through mascara so fast that I need to make sure I always have an extra tube, or two when I’m on location.
If you had to choose one word to describe yourself/your business what would it be?
5 Things that make you happy?
Family/ friends, coffee ice cream, pumpkins, morning glories, genuine people.
What is your personal favorite color used in weddings?
On your day off you can be found…
Gardening with my husband and crafting…. Wow, times have changed!
Wedding Cake, cupcakes, or a candy/cookie bar? Which is your personal fave?
I’m usually not that traditional, but I’d go with wedding cake because its timeless.
What makes your service unique?
My aesthetic is typically a natural, bohemian look because that sort of describes myself, so I usually have that type of bride seeking me out.
However I can do anything you ask for including a really dramatic, sexy bridal look, and I actually love to do them! If you show me a picture of what you want to look like, I can duplicate it much easier than a description of what you want to look like. I’m a very visual person, and this helps with understanding what you are trying to go for.
Just keep in mind that if you show me a picture of Kim Kardashian and you are blonde, with porcelain skin and blue eyes, I will most likely change all the colors I use on the eyes and lips to match it to your coloring not hers. When choosing a picture, try to choose someone that has similar features, coloring etc… It will help to get that perfect look that best suits YOU!
Tell us why you think you’re popular choice for brides and grooms.
I listen to my brides, and try to deliver to the best of my ability. I will never put makeup on a bride the way “I” want it to look. I do what you want. I’m honest, genuine and an overall good person. I try to make this process as fun as possible because this is one of the best parts of planning a wedding, seeing what you are going to look like when you walk down the aisle!
Do you have any tips or suggestions for planning a honeymoon?
Save, save, save! Start a honeyfund and put it on your registry. It’s not tacky these days to ask for what you really want.
What style of wedding dress is your favorite.
l love a dress that fits the figure perfectly.
Do you have any tips or suggestions for brides when it comes to finding the perfect dress?
When I went shopping for my wedding gown I realized that there were more than a million dresses I could have picked, and any of them could have been “the dress”. I think you just have to pick one and trust yourself that it was a great choice. Don’t get hung up over “THE dress”.
