On set for IBM Inventor filming

I had so much fun yesterday being the Makeup Artist on set for eFilms Media and IBM.  I can honestly say that when I go to “work” it doesn’t at all feel like work.  This is my passion and I have fun no matter what.  It makes me feel good when I can connect with my clients and bring out their confidence.  I hope to work on many more sets very soon!

Here’s a bit of what my day looked like :

Birthday makeover!

My cousin wanted professional hair & makeup for her family picture session over the weekend. Who better to get than yours truly, your own, Vixen Charm! I gave her a custom airbrush foundation finish with custom airbrush blush and complementary eye & face colors with medium lashes to complete her look. Her hair was styled with loose curls that were held with high quality styling products and a high gloss shine to finish the look. Check out the before and after. I can’t wait to see her family pics!!

Bridal Party 4/6

Saturday I had the pleasure of working once again with this family; this time for a wedding.  The first time I worked for this family it was for M’s daughter, A’s, Quinceneara.  They are always a lot of fun and so easy to work with.  The wedding was for M’s sister in law, K. K wears minimal makeup and wanted to stay with a very natural look.  I airbrushed her makeup using my Temptu machine giving her the most flawless finish while still keeping her look very natural.
Here is K’s look while in the process of getting her hair done:

Here is A, the quince girl, who is always so much fun to work with.  She likes a medium coverage look with winged eyes.  I used a full coverage powder and applied with a light to medium build to give her the exact look she was wanting.  I applied natural lashes to complete her look:

Mother of the Bride, A, was so sweet!  She also wanted a natural look while looking flawless in her pictures.  Custom shades and look made just for her.  She’s such a sweetheart:

My last and final makeup application was done on one of my all time fave clients, M. She’s my repeat client who I absolutely adore!  She’s such a doll and always a pleasure to work with.  I did a custom airbrush makeup application on her.  M is a huge fan of the Temptu application b/c it hides her scar in pictures.  Here is her look while getting her hair ‘did’:

I really enjoy working with this family.  They are all so much fun, friendly, and so warm and welcoming!  They always open up their homes and make you feel like family as soon as you walk in the door.  It’s so self rewarding when they take a look in the mirror and see their finished look and are so genuinely happy.  This is why I love what I do!  It’s moments like these that make the education and preparation so worth it.  You always want to perfect your craft and sharpen your tool so you can deliver to your client.  I hope you enjoyed meeting these women as I’ve enjoyed getting to know them.

Stay confident and keep smilin’
