Above is my client who fell 2 days before her sons wedding. She had 2 huge black eyes and tons of swelling. She asked me if I could do anything to help her and I said "of course". The top left is the before picture (the one she texted me to ask me if I could help - I gasped upon viewing it), the bottom left picture is the start of airbrushing corrective color on top of her bruises (you can see I covered the red areas with green). It took several layers and different shades of corrector and different shades of foundation to achieve the results we wanted.
The power of makeup in the right makeup artist's hands is truly amazing. With makeup I can transform your entire face, it is up to you how much or how little. Making eyes appear bigger and brighter is a piece of cake. Contouring the face, highlighting cheekbones, lining the lips - all of these techniques enhance and bring out your features.

How much you enhance them is up to you - you can choose a casual daytime look or go all out glam. Your own personal comfort level, time and lifestyle will help you determine the right look for you. Experiencing the power of makeup for yourself can be life changing, giving you self-confidence. Contact me to schedule your appointment.
The American Cancer Society has a program ( for which I have volunteered) called Look Good, Feel Better because they understand the power of makeup. Psychologically what we see in the mirror effects how we feel, so using makeup to make us look better helps to make us feel better. It is one of the most rewarding parts of what I do as a makeup artist, to transform a woman, to help her self-confidence and raise her self esteem. To help her recognize the face in the mirror again.
This is why I LOVE the power of makeup and you should too!
