A wedding day, is one of the most special days between a couple. I always feel so blessed to be a part of the experience.

I think I cried like 3 times while doing her makeup because of the special moments I got to share with her. You will see once you watch the video. It was a beautiful wedding to be a part of.

Caitlin is a sweetheart, and has an eye for design. She wants to be in the wedding world herself. Hopefully one day we will get to work together on a wedding!

Caitlin wanted to look like a blushing princess bride. We did a light smokey eye with a pop of pink on her cheeks. A nude lip to soften the look. We did about 3 different up dos during her trial til we finally decided on sweep, with curls pulled back in a pony tail. The mother of the bride also had her hair and makeup done by Mariana Marie.

I love this video post by Sadie Such Photography, because she really captures the love the bride and groom have for each other.

Added bonus, my makeup and hair work is all through out it! he he

Thank to Sadie for such a beautiful job on the video.

Arielle over at modernvintagedesigns for all her wonderful work on this wedding. She is who introduced me to the bride. The wedding design was created and executed by Arielle. She is a total rock star with many talents!

BridalBliss: Campbell Wedding

Such a beautiful bride. Married at the Hotel Del Coronado, in San Diego, California.

Nicole’s beach side wedding was gorgeous! There was only family at the ceremony, and the Father’s of the Bride and Groom officiated the wedding. I love how sophisticated and high fashion she looks in her dress while standing in the white sand! I had the pleasure of doing Nicole’s makeup and hair, and her mothers. It was such a treat. Thanks for letting me a part of your special day!

Thank You Whitney Darling for all the Photos!

Super Excited to Announce!!! YOUNGBLOOD

  I love all things natural,

so I am excited to announce another hand picked line, by me!

I was first introduced to Youngblood in Napa, California. While on vacation, celebrating my anniversary with my husband. Go figure, that I find myself in a makeup boutique while on vacation!? Lucky me, my husband didn’t mind..there was a cigar store right next to the makeup store. The executive education trainer for YBS was in store that day.  Super random that we both were there, but great, because he gave me a mini rundown of the product and some samples to go home with!

This is when I feel in love!

I put the lipstick on, which was a perfect pink for me, and then continued on wine tasting the whole night!I did not reapply!!! IT LASTED THROUGH wine tasting?! I was astonished. I have worn many lip colors and never had anything stay on and hydrate my lips like this product. The next day, I tried out the mineral primer and liquid foundation. Yet, again, I was blown away by the coverage and control of the product! I knew I had to get my lil hands on more!

YOUNGBLOOD cosmetics has stolen my heart.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics manufactures and supplies the highest quality cosmetics to doctors, aestheticians, spas, med-spas, and salons worldwide.

The concept of a mineral makeup is great, but I do feel like there is a lack of higher quality products on the market. YB totally fills that gap.

I have tried them all, nothing compares!

Majority of their products are Gluten Free! Some of my clients have very sensitive skin and/or a Gluten intolerance, so this is the perfect solution for them.

The line offers everything from primers, foundations, lips, eyes and tools!

I can’t wait to start sharing the YB love with my clients!
