Thank you so much for stopping by!
A little bit about myself: I have eight years of experience doing bridal makeup and hair and I have to say it's my jam! Bridal Beauty is what I specialize in and what I am most passionate about. I fell into it serendipitously after graduating from Portland's top beauty school, The Aveda Institute Portland. I began freelancing for some amazing makeup lines and working on test shoots where I realized that I adored the art makeup and hair styling. This ultimately lead me to working with one of the top bridal teams in Portland, where I spent a few years honing my skills and absorbing all things wedding, and then branching off and starting my own team. Some things are truly meant to be!
I would describe my style as "soft glam". While I do love to add some drama with the eyes or lips, I tend to keep the skin on the more natural side. I LOVE LOVE LOVE fresh, radiant skin and textured, romantic hair styling. Enhancing the beauty that is already there is what I live for. Originating from Portland, Oregon (a huge hot spot for local and destination weddings) I bring with me a fresh perspective, unique to the Pacific Northwest. I have received a ton of additional training with artists that inspire me, including some of the best celebrity makeup artists. I also continue to receive mentoring by some long-time, fabulous artists in the wedding industry. I am 100% of the mindset that I can never stop learning and growing as an artist,
What you can expect from me:
Attentiveness-I am a people pleaser and genuinely care about creating your beauty vision. If you're happy, I'm happy!
Reliable and Punctual-The thought of being late gives me major anxiety so I am always early. If I am on time, I am basically late in my mind.
Clean. Let's be real. We are in the middle of a pandemic. Ensuring everyone's safety is my top priority. I have additional sanitation training and follow and exceed all guidelines for sanitation.
Whats in my kit: A little bit of everything! I stock my kit with many different brands as I have my favorites with each one. Some brands you may have heard of such as: Hourglass, Anastasia of Beverly Hills, Mac Cosmetics and Becca. As well as some others that you likely have not heard of such as: Viseart, Face Atelier, Senna and Ben Nye. I love to try new products and find the next new thing for my brides.

If I am not painting faces, you will find me in my kitchen. I love trying new recipes and have a fascination with kitchen gadgets and an addiction to cookbooks and food blogs.
I have an uncontrollable urge to buy all of the dresses....especially if they are from Anthropology!
