Charlotte Wedding Insider

Apr 24 2016

I am so thankful that The Charlotte Wedding Insider asked me to be part of their show.

Are y’all familiar with this local Charlotte wedding show?

It’s too good and highlights different vendors, locations, tips and tricks for brides who are planning their wedding.  Diane, co-owner of Split Second Sound (my personal DJ for our wedding) has created The Charlotte Wedding Insider and it’s pretty awesome!  Make sure to check out my full makeup tutorial HERE.

makeup + hair

Jan 14 2016

In October I spent a few days in Winston Salem with a few of my dear friends who happen to be amazing vendors.  Perry Vaile (photographer) and Rebecca Rose Creative (planners/ designers) hosted a fine photography workshop called, Lively Workshop.  I’m so thankful that they asked little ole me to do makeup + hair for the workshop.  What an honor.

Perry and the ladies of Rebecca Rose are some of the most talented individuals that I’ve ever been around.  This shoot that I’m featuring today was all shot and executed in the RAIN!  Can you believe that… you know this makeup + hair artist was sweating bullets.  Wowza.

Here’s a look at one of the shoots that we did together.  At the bottom of this post you can find a list of the products used (including those $10 lashes!) and a complete list of vendors.  This shoot was also featured on Style Me Pretty!

makeup + hair

Jan 12 2016

I had the pleasure of doing makeup and hair for a beautiful shoot with Love & Honey and Allison Kuhn Photography.  If you follow me on instagram then you might recall the sneak peek beauty pic that I posted several weeks ago.

I kept the beautiful bride’s look super simple and romantic. I kept her skin clean and reduced the amount of shimmery powders that I typically use.  I played up her eyes with voluminous lashes and added depth to her perfectly shaped brows without making them look too “plastic”.  We used the lip color called “Angel” by MAC.  A soft bridal look that I’m so happy with.
At the very bottom of this post, I linked the products that I used.

Engagement Session Makeup + Hair


So excited to share one of my all time favorite engagement session of the adorable blogger, Taylor-Rae of StyleSouffle and her handsome fiancé.  Beautiful photography captured by the amazing Kristin Byrum Photography.

Taylor-Rae is literally a “rae” of sunshine and everything that a southern girl should be!  Her kindness, energy, beauty, positivity, style — it’s contagious!  She’s the hostess-with-the-mostess and I cannot WAIT to see what her 2016 wedding brings!  I know it’ll be beautiful!

So much love to this sweet bride and her fabulous photographer!
