Grecian Inspired Fantasy Hair & Makeup

Really there’s no way to describe this hair & makeup; you just have to see it. I’m so proud of these images because it’s the first photo shoot that I conceptualized. I have to send a HUGE, HUGE , HUGE, heartfelt “thank you” to Kristina at Blue Rose Photography for supporting, drawing out, & filling in the gaps on my vision. I could not have done anything even close to something as lovely as this without you!! Feast your eyes ladies & gents…

Thanks to Sophia for having the best hair in the world for this braid & for knowing how to work a flowy dress like a boss!

Location: Hotel Parq Central

 

Engagement Photo Session: Hair & Makeup

This was one of our first brides & I can’t believe we never posted a blog about her! She was so sweet & we absolutely loved working with this naturally beautiful bride. In preparation for her wedding day, we provided her with a hair & makeup trial on the day of her engagement photo shoot. Any good photographer will tell you that a professional makeup application is critical for excellent photos, even if the desired look is very natural. A good photo-ready makeup application should obscure any dark shadows, highlight the cheekbones, and emphasize the eyes. We always lightly fill in the eyebrows & add some color to the cheeks because bright lighting & camera flash can cause the natural color in our faces to become washed out. We wanted this gorgeous girl’s natural beauty to shine through & we made sure to highlight all of her best features (Hello BOMBSHELL EYELASHES!).

Ultra-Elegant Bridal Hair & Makeup

For this photo shoot I paired bold, elegant makeup with classic, romantic hair. I wanted to make sure that Emily’s makeup was noticeable enough to stand up to the beauty of the landscape & the bright, outdoor lighting. Then, I selected the hairstyle with her gorgeous hair in mind. I wanted to simultaneously emphasize the beauty of Emily’s hair while allowing it to flow softly in the gentle breezes of our lovely New Mexico landscape. I hope you all enjoy these photos as much as I do & maybe this hair & makeup will give you a little inspiration for your own wedding day or photo session.:)

90’s Inspired Boho Hair & Makeup

We had the crazy fun opportunity to do something we absolutely love – our take on 90’s hair  & makeup (I’ll never not feel like the 90’s were only a few years ago </3 ).

Our Gorgeous New Studio!

We have wonderful, exciting news! We now have a physical location where we are able to host our bridal preview sessions, group makeup lessons, beauty classes, & makeup parties for special events.  Panorama

Our space is well-lit & spacious, with plenty of natural light, which we all know is essential to a superb makeup application. I also purchased studio lighting, similar to what you might find in a photographer’s set up, for those cloudy days when we’ll need the supplemental light.

We also have a beverage station (yay, Keurig!) because, let’s face it… coffee is a necessity.
