I'm a professional makeup artist based in Western Massachusetts who specializes in classic and creative looks for weddings, events, photoshoots, and personal consultations.

I possess a good kit (professional products not limited to one line, all kept impeccably clean), an eye for color, and a mature work ethic. I love the effect makeup can have on a person's overall style and attitude, and I strive to enhance both with my work. I have worked with all ages from tweens to 91-year-old grandmothers, all genders (yes, I groom masculine types too!), all skin types and colors, and I am LGBT friendly all the way.

As an independent artist, I don't sell anything other than my time and talent (no relentless product pitches!) I am proficient at both airbrush and traditional application, and regularly attend trainings and seminars to hone my skills. My motto? Blending is everything!

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

My focus is makeup for high-definition photography and video. I learned to do makeup for the camera right from the start! I bring an editorial eye to every job that I do, and I am not a cookie-cutter artist; I want to know what brides want and what they are comfortable with, so I encourage them to bring photos and ideas, fabric swatches, links… anything that will help me get a sense of their unique styles. I don’t fall back on a look that doesn’t suit the face (or the personality) that I’m working with, and I work very collaboratively with clients to help them look their best from every angle and in every medium.

In addition, my services are fully mobile — I come to you with my kit, comfy director’s chair, and even a table and lighting if needed. You don’t have to worry about providing a perfect studio set-up for me, and you don’t have to take time out of an already stressful day to go to a salon to get your makeup done.

Finally, I’m an avid writer and love to share my knowledge with others — I have a free ebook you can download right from my site, and I publish a biweekly newsletter as well — check them out!

Examples of my work

Most of my clients want to look like themselves and celebrate their unique beauty, so I specialize in barely-there looks that don't scream "makeup!" (unless you want them to). This is most apparent in my makeup on skin, which is HD photo-ready and doesn't come across as heavy or powdery. (Because the only cake at a wedding should be at the reception, not on the bride's face!)

But I also love color, and doing makeup that isn't traditional bridal — and I know how to make even dramatic color look effortless and flattering. I have lots of editorial photoshoots to share, and as for my real-life clients, take a browse through the Wedding category on my blog and the Real Weddings gallery on my website. And be sure to subscribe — I’m always adding new photos, as well as tips & tricks for brides!
