I appreciate that Rihanna took on this endeavor. Entering the multi billion dollar beauty industry is NOT easy no matter who you are. Rihanna has a huge company behind her line but even that doesn’t guarantee success. With that said, these are my honest thoughts. [Read more…]
Baletica and I met for the very first time at her bridal preparation location, Angelica’s Place, on the afternoon of her wedding day. She wasn’t exactly sure how she wanted her makeup, but she knew she wanted a sexy glamorous look that incorporated the gold tones of her wedding. [Read more…]
I traveled to Rosalind’s home prior to her wedding day for her Bridal Preview where we discussed and executed her perfect wedding day look. Like most of my Stunning Brides, Rosalind wanted a natural glam style of makeup, but she wanted to add a pop of color for the lips. I used a mixture of MAC lipsticks and created the perfect shade for Rosalind’s crisp fall wedding. [Read more…]
As if wedding planning isn’t complicated enough, my Stunning Bride, Niki planned her wedding in Chicago while living in Dallas, TX. Yikes! Luckily, she was able to find all of her vendors, including myself, via TheKnot.com where I am listed as a “Best of the Knot” award winning bridal makeup artist in the Greater Chicagoland area. Yay for hard work, dedication, and the many satisfied Stunning Brides who shared their honest reviews that helped me achieve this great honor! [Read more…]
Is it too late to post a “Happy New Year” blog and declare “New Year, New Me?!” Not really, right? Better late than never!
So…New Year, New….Me! Well, kinda. I’ve never been a fan of New Year’s resolutions, but kudos to those who make them (and a big cookie to those who keep them, unless of course, your resolution was to eat healthier, then a big scoop of Halo Top Sea Salt Caramel ice cream to you!).
I believe in starting better habits whenever, wherever, and however, you can. As my Godmother always says “when you know better, do better.” For some, that involves making goals at the turn of every year. For others, like myself, it involves randomly setting new goals any day at any time.
However, somehow it worked out that I made a big change on January 1, 2017: [Read more…]

I met Tanyala a few months before her wedding day for a Bridal Preview session. After having worked with other makeup artists, Tanyala was a bit nervous. We discussed her wedding day beauty vision and were able to easily design and execute her perfect wedding day look. The soon-to-be Mrs. was pleased and grateful at the end of her preview session. I also had the pleasure of doing makeup for the Bridal Shower, so I was very familiar with Tanyala’s personal makeup preferences and needs prior to her wedding day. [Read more…]
Like so many of my brides over the last couple years, my stunning bride, Roshea, booked me for her wedding date without a Bridal Preview. She completed my very detailed online Bridal Consultation that allowed me to show up on her wedding day prepared to design and execute her perfect wedding day look. [Read more…]
I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the best brides. Beautiful inside and out! I love when they take time out of their newly hitched days to leave kind words about the services I provided on their special day.
Below is a review from a recent bride: [Read more…]
