Ohhh October 22nd..

Okay, so this past Saturday was INSANE! Insane in a good way.. but insane nonetheless.

I had appointments all over town. First one was a wedding party that I got dolled up at Elite Styling Lounge, second was an engagement party makeover for Allyson Hill and her amazing sister Bethany. Then off to my studio to doll up Erin, a great client who lets me do all the fun stuff! We chatted fall looks and decided on a beautiful deep burgandy lip. The color is Diva from MAC, and trust me.. it'll bring it out in you... no matter who you are! ;)

This is one of my favorite looks so far this fall so I thought I'd share..

 LOVE LOVE LOVE this lipstick color!! Everyone needs Diva in their makeup bag!
 Allyson rocking the plum shadow! She looked gorgeous!
Dare you lipstick by MAC. Looovee this color. Threw on the old school Fafi gloss on top. Brule' and bamboo on the lid :)

Bonnie and Brians' enchanting day!

A couple of weeks back I did makeup for handsdown one of my new favorite people on the planet. Bonnie Farraiuolo (formerly Bamba) was one of the most gracious, generous, and relaxed brides I have ever had the pleasure to work with. She and her husband Brian are in for a long journey of happiness and I am thankful to have had  the opportunity to work with her :)

Here are a few pictures from their beautiful backyard wedding in Redding Ca. Enjoy!

Makeup for Bride Bonnie, and bridesmaid Emily Johnson (right) done by me :)

 Amy Mitchell Cheek on her big day! She looked amazing, and her dress... to die for!

Thought I'd start this post off  fun and light! So business has been crazier than I could have ever imagined... Life is crazy like that though.. Ive been doing photoshoots, weddings ( like.... a ton), lots of lessons, and my favorite.. Proms.

There is so much to be grateful for.. and I am.

Great friends who help me tremendously, (you know who you are), family, and most of all the community.

My medium of art is often hard to appreciate, especially in this fast past world of glitz and glam in abstract, graffiti, illustrative, etc. So I am thankful to those who take a moment, girls and boys alike and appreciate the medium of makeup art.

This is a short and sweet post, but it wraps up what I am feeling. :)
