Cherokee Ranch & Castle Wedding | Wedding Makeup

Sedalia, CO – August 24, 2017

Jestine was one of the most beautiful brides I have ever seen! She had found me last minute, and I was thankfully available because this bunch of ladies were amazing! Jestine came from Colorado Springs to get married at the Cherokee Ranch & Castle in Sedalia. She opted for a skin-focused classic look to accentuate her already-incredible features. We topped her pink lips with a clear gloss, brushed on a peachy blush and enhanced her eyes with a little shimmer (a little shimmer never hurt anyone!) and off she went to marry the love of her life! Check out her stunning photos!

Stinson Beach, CA Wedding | Wedding Makeup

Stinson Beach, CA – October 7, 2017.

This day was unlike any other for me. It was the day that I had my first out of state wedding, and I woke up in a little seaside motel in California. Claire, my beautiful bride, was getting ready at a home that overlooked Stinson Beach but was strategically next to the venue that she would later get married at. Miss (soon to be Mrs.) Claire chose a defined eye, similar to something Jennifer Lawrence would wear, and fresh skin to go with her elegant Californian Wedding.
It was a perfect day, and to believe it, you must see it for yourself below!

How To Prepare For Your Makeup Service

Well hello again! Thank you for digging in deeper into my beautiful space on the web! As a professional makeup artist, I see so many different skin types, colors and concerns. The major concerns that I see when I am getting ready to apply makeup to a beautiful face is dry skin! Being in Colorado, this is a given, but I want to ensure that the makeup application is set up for success – follow these helpful hints below on how to take care of that gorgeous skin of yours to help make the makeup last long and wear beautifully!

DRINK WATER
Drinking water is essential, especially when you want your skin to look hydrated and at it’s all time prime. Many people struggle with dry skin, even if they are taken proper care of it, and it usually boils down to not drinking enough H2O throughout the day, Shoot for half your weight in oz. a day!

WEAR SUNSCREEN
Don’t you hate tan lines? The last thing you want is to have splotchy or sunburned skin the day of your event! You want to protect your skin from any sun-damage so make sure to wear your sunscreen daily to ensure you’ll have healthy skin. Recommended Sunscreen: Image Skincare Preven on+ Moisturizing SPF 32+

MOISTURIZE
Moisturizing your skin pairs with drinking water! You want your skin to look radiant and hydrated for your event and we always seem to skimp out on moisturizer or are buying the improper moisturizer for our skin. See your favorite esthetician for the best recommendation for your skin type and concerns. Make sure to wear a nice moisturizer day & night!

EXFOLIATE/CLEANSE
We want a nice smooth surface so that your skin doesn’t appear to have dry patches. These “dry patches” (normally in your t-zone) are usually dead skin lingering on your face and become very  obvious when foundation is applied to the face. So this is a must! Don’t forget to cleanse your face the day of your special event as well!


With Love,

Brooke
