Each artist is carefully selected for your wedding based on their many years of experience, awards, education, licensing, talent and attention to detail.

WHAT WE OFFER-

All of the artists have a deep passion for creating beauty in collaboration with your vision.

Each makeup application receives event lashes & airbrushing included in the price. Traditional makeup is also available. You can read about the additional benefits of airbrushing on the next page. The Artists also participate in many bridal hair styling classes throughout the year so that they can execute any bridal hair style.

We provide you with peace of mind and a detailed makeup-hair schedule 3-4 weeks prior to your wedding.
