Your skin should look natural and flawless on your wedding day.

November 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

It’s always a good idea to take extra care of your skin in the months prior to your wedding day.

Drink alot of water and keep your skin well exfoliated and moisturized.A few visits to a good

esthetician for exfoliation and microdermabrasion treatments up to a week or ten days before

your day is a good way to help your skin look its best.

Eyebrow shaping/waxing should be done at least three days before your wedding .

I find that alot of the current bridal make-up looks to be a little more natural

and not too heavy.

Airbrushed make-up is very in demand for its flawless natural look ,especially in high resolution

photos and HD video which most photographers and videographers use now.

I use Kett waterproof airbrush make-up for its long lasting , non transfering , very natural looking finish.


I am available for hair and make-up services on location for bridal parties in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine in 2012.

Four Seasons Bridal Party

This is a bride that I got ready at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston this past weekend.

Her look:

Natural looking makeup ,done with Kett waterproof airbrush makeup for a natural flawless glow and just natural colors on the rest of the face.Simple can be better.

The hair was done by adding some human hair extensions that I custom made to add fullness and a few inches of  length to her own hair , then wraped sections around a large curling iron for a flowing undone look.

Hair Sewing , a newer technique in style.

This is a great alternative to having a ton of hair elastics and bobby pins in your hair for your wedding or special event.

This great new way of making the hair look softly put together is done with a single thread weaved through the hair.Many beautiful natural looking styles can be achieved with this new method of “sewing” hair.

I love a beautiful and natural glowing bridal look in hair and makeup..never over done!

I still have some availability for 2011 and 2012 bridal parties, and provide convenient on location hair styling and full makeup services including airbrushed makeup.
