I'm an independent freelance beauty artist, and I specialize in working with people of all ages and stages to help them look and feel their most beautiful and confident for any day or occasion-and for the camera. Unlike a salon or large beauty team, I provide a boutique style one on one beauty services in my private studio, by phone and virtually, or at your location.
WHAT DOES YOUR MAKEUP SERVICE INCLUDE?
I start every makeup session with a thorough skin prep designed for your needs, and I create custom blended complexions for global tones. My goal is to create looks that are as flawless in person as they are in photos-with minimal products, that deliver maximum results. If faux lashes or my airbrush are used to achieve your look, they are always included in my service at no additional cost to you. Each makeup service I provide is as unique as the individual in my chair. Sanitation and clean service practices have always been a priority, and my pro kit is carefully curated and stocked to accommodate any age, stage, tone, type, and need.
DO YOU USE AIRBRUSH MAKEUP?
I do! But not always. I use both traditional and airbrush techniques in my work, and I often combine them to create my looks. My airbrush allows me to build coverage where needed with fine layers of product, so I usually reach for it for more hard-to-cover situations. I use a pro formula in mine that is long wearing, comfortable. Just like every foundation I work with, it looks like skin, only better. An airbrush is a tool, not a product, so its superiority to traditional foundation is relative, and depends on the talent and experience of artist behind it! I think of my airbrush as any other important brush or tool in my kit, much like the way a photographer might use different lenses and tools to create and refine an image to achieve their desired result.
DO YOU APPLY AND PROVIDE FALSE LASHES?
Absolutely. I love a way a lash can enhance or complete even the most natural makeup. I create custom temporary lash looks that are comfortable and natural looking, and they photograph beautifully. My signature faux lash design service is included with every makeup application, if desired.
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS CRUELTY FREE?
Vegan and cruelty free options are always available, by request.
WHAT DOES YOUR HAIR SERVICE INCLUDE?
I specialize in creating beautiful up and down styles, with a focus on long wear, comfort, and beauty for photography. Braids, twists, and romantic up-styles are my specialty, and each of my hairstyles are expertly prepped and coiffed using only the best prestige and professional tools and products required to maximize your hair's styling potential.
Many of the styles you see in my portfolios are created with clip in hair extensions, and faux hair pieces. I'm happy to consult with you to help you determine what will be needed to achieve your desired look, and direct you to the right resources for purchasing any faux pieces that will be required to achieve your desired style.
I'm an independent artist-not a cosmetologist-and I do not provide cuts, color, or any other barbering or salon services.
WHAT KIND OF PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
I love and trust several prestige and professional skincare, makeup and hairstyling brands and only the best of the best products and tools make it into my pro kit. Clean ingredients and reputable brand philosophies are important to me, and my kit is cruelty free and largely vegan. Impeccable sanitation has always been a top priority of mine, and I also offer options for customizing your own personal skincare, makeup and brush set.
DO YOU WORK WITH HAIR EXTENSIONS?
I do! I love using faux hair, and in fact, many of the hair designs you'll see in my portfolio and social media platforms are created using hair extensions and pieces. I'm here to help you decide what will be best for your desired look, and offer you my favorite resources and options.
DO YOU MIND IF I WORK WITH MY OWN HAIRSTYLIST?
Not at all! For brides with larger parties, I'm often hired for makeup only. If your hairstylist is experienced with weddings and the needs of bridal styling (and if they work with a contract!) you're more than welcome to meet my booking minimum with makeup services only.
HOW MUCH TIME WILL YOU NEED TO COMPLETE MY SERVICES?
From prep to finish, most of my makeup and hair designs require 45-60 minutes each. For both hair and makeup, 2 hours is usually ideal.
DO YOU OFFER BRIDAL TRIAL SESSIONS?
I’m available in my Midtown Sacramento studio for trial session services by appointment Tuesday-Thursday. My studio rate is $125/hour. For best results, reserve your wedding date while it’s available, then book your trial session 2-3 months before your wedding day.
DO YOU REQUIRE A CONTRACT?
My time is not secured or reserved without a signed contract and date retainer. 50% of your contracted/scheduled hair and makeup services will be due at the time of booking. Your remaining balance and any additional applicable fees will be issued before your event date, and due at the time of service.
DO YOU WORK WITH A TEAM?
I'm an independent freelance artist, and I can accommodate up to six total hair or makeup services on my own without assistance.
WHAT IS YOUR TRAVEL FEE?
My service includes up to an an hour of local roundtrip travel within Sacramento county. My travel fee beyond my included round trip is $125 an hour. Hotel reservations and per diem are required for all bookings requiring more than 3 total hours of travel time.
WHAT IF MY WEDDING VENUE ISN'T AVAILABLE FOR MY SERVICES?
If your venue isn't available at the time we'll need to begin your contracted services, you'll need to secure an alternate location, or we can work in my studio, located in midtown, Sacramento.
