Oh what a stylish wedding!!

Amanda has to be one of the most stylish brides we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Her gown had us in awe & the hair we did couldn’t have been more complimentary to her chic style; it was just right for showing off her stunning earrings. She was such a lovely bride, what an addition to our portfolio!

Girls- let’s face it. We are OBSESSED. And if we are honest- it’s not going to stop. There’s so many techniques and different ways to do it. It’s ALWAYS on our mind. There are so many places to get it. And when it’s good, it’s REALLY good…

The thing we love the most about our client’s reactions to styling, is how it makes them FEEL. Looking well put together, on a big day can put that extra pep in your step that you didn’t even know you needed. Stepping out of a makeup chair feeling beautiful is a guaranteed start to a great day.   Confidence is beautiful. It gives us great pride to see so many of our clients leaving with that special glow.

SO- next time there is a special occasion and you are stumped for what gift to buy, consider a professional hair and makeup session. It really is a beautiful gift.

Polished, sophisticated, and feminine. Perfect hair and makeup for the Hyatt Regency in downtown Albuquerque.

If you are a sophisticate bride with a love for contemporary style then you will probably be a huge fan of the sleek and modern, minimalistic remodel of the Hyatt Regency’s Downtown property. With a venue like this, hair and makeup become very important accentuations to the wedding look. For this styled shoot we wanted the hair to be sophisticated, but also light and feminine to match the feeling of the lace top on the brides two piece wedding dress. To accessorize the hair further, we paired a gold leaf headband with loose but clean curly tendrils which we weaved into a perfect bridal bun. The makeup is an enhancement to her natural beauty with a pop of a bolder shadow on her lids. This unique chapel is the perfect background for a modern bride who loves a polished look and really wants to shine on her wedding day.

Christy Johnson reviews one of Albuquerque’s newest venues- Romanza Falls. See what she rated it…

Q:  As a professional hair and makeup artist who has styled in a large number 12435671089of venues across the state, what are your first impressions of the new Romanza Falls Event Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico?

C. Johnson:  The Bridal Suite at the Romanza Falls event venue is perfect for hair and makeup- particularly because of all of the natural lighting. It is so difficult to find bridal suites or getting ready spaces that have adequate natural lighting which is absolutely key to having a good makeup application. It doesn’t matter how many lights you bring in, it will never compare with good sunlight. This particular bridal suite is filled with windows and is absolutely beautiful! Also, because it is a big open space we can bring in our kit and makeup chair but it will still be comfortable for everyone to hang out it. It really is ideal for getting ready. It is probably the best bridal suite I have seen in town.

Q: What would you say about the style and presentation of the venue?

C. Johnson: I think it was clean, which is nice. It is modern, which is nice. I think the waterfall is peaceful and relaxing which is REALLY nice for a bride on the morning of her wedding because, lets be honest- that can be a stressful time. So there’s nothing I can really say that would make it any better.

Q: How many stars would you rate this new venue from first impression?

C. Johnson: 10 stars! We look forward to working our first event in that gorgeous suite.

C. Johnson Makeup had the great pleasure of doing hair and makeup for a very courageous traveler Lauren Trantham before her interview with KOB 4 and for this special shoot with the talented Lyndsey Garber.

 

Lauren is 6 weeks into a nearly 9 week ride that will take her 10,000 miles accross the country. Her journey is to spread awareness and raise money to support survivors of sex trafficking in the US through the Rebecca Bendor initiative. We think Lauren is a exceptional role model who inspires strength and empowerment for women everywhere. As a company that is owned and operated by women, we give a huge nod to Lauren and her cause.

We love following her story and we encourage you to do the same. So far she has helped to raise $41k but still has two more weeks on her trek left. She will continue to photograph survivors, create awareness and host events throug the end of this 10k mile journey. If you’d like to donate to this worthy cause and learn more about the beauty behind the bike please go to Generosity.com. You can find more info on her project and follow her journey through all social media outlets via this handle: Ride My Road.
