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.

Our walls are adorned with canvases from some of our favorite photo shoots that we’ve done (these canvases are from Blue Rose Photography).

Initial prep: old makeup removal & skin prep. We used jojoba oil & a cotton round to gently wipe away any left over mascara. We also used jojoba oil as to moisturize the rest of the face to help provide a smooth foundation application.
