Recently been so inspired by @brandi.x0 and her ahhhhhhhmazing glitter cut crease looks. Today... I did something that I didn’t know if it would work out.. and even though I have been doing makeup for a very long time, I was scared I couldn’t do it. Guys!! Do things that scare you!!! Huge thanks to @makeupbysoniai Bc I have been texting her picking her brain about what to use. Hair color by the lovely @lind_uhhh. #makeupbykevan #cutcrease #glitter #glittercutcrease #mdmua #bescene #marylandmakeupartist #marylandmua

Makeup inspired by @maadds new hair by the amazing @maayanbirnstein. I used @maccosmetics Reflects Transparent Pink on her lid with Pink Swoon Powder Blush to add the perfect poseyness to her crease. I love using products in ways other than their intended use.. thus I have All That Glitters Eyeshadow smothering her perfect cheekbones. #makeupbykevan #beautymakeup #dcmakeupartist #dcmua #marylandmua #mdmua #glitter

Another lovely day @bescene studios 🖤 Bronzy glam for model @danielle_finley_, makeup by yours truly, hair tamed and styled by the wonderful @colorbydennis. Huge thanks to @shmeggsandbaconn for snapping this pic. I used a lot of @maccosmetics on this beauty even though she really doesn’t need a thing. #makeupbykevan #marylandmua #makeup #mdmua #dcmua #dcmakeupartist

How cute is @yurhairness with her new peachy locks? Loved doing her makeup with some glittery goodness. This girl seriously doesn’t need any makeup which makes putting makeup in her all the more fun. Brands used: @maccosmetics @anastasiabeverlyhills @mariobadescu @makeupforeverus @tartecosmetics @hourglasscosmetics @pixibeauty @ardellbeauty @glossier @morphebrushes #makeupbykevan

Another amazing day working with @shmeggsandbaconn on the lovely @rachelhiwiller. @shmeggsandbaconn slayed her hair giving her a great new cut and fresh blonde hues. Check out her IG for deets on cut and color. Loved doing makeup on this gorgeous babe. Used @maccosmetics @lashesinabox @skindinavia @ctilburymakeup @narsissist @mariobadescu @morphebrushes @anastasiabeverlyhills #makeupbykevan

Get ready to be flooded with all sorts of girly goodness? Gorgeous hair by @shmeggsandbaconn who killed this cut and color. Makeup by yours truly and modeled by the lovely @foreverkiee who I’ve been dying to do her makeup for quite a while now (that’s not creepy right?? 🙈). I guess nows as good as ever to let you guys know I am now taking makeup clients at @bescene studios. I’ve been getting my hair done there for years and have always loved the atmosphere and the artistic freedom their stylists get. So to be working alongside these insanely talented people is such a blessing. Come in. Get your hair and makeup done. Leave gorgeous. 💁🏼‍♀️ #makeupbykevan #dcmakeupartist #dcmua #bescene 💜

Heyyy Kevan here.. did you know I do more than just bridal makeup? Yup I love to do makeup for events, family photos, maternity pics, you name it I can help you with it. I even do lessons to teach you how to create the perfect daily look on yourself. In fact, I have some available appointments this weekend. So feel free to send me a DM to fill one of the few available spots I have open. #dcmakeupartist #dcmua #mua #makeupbykevan #marylandmakeupartist #mdmua #marylandmua

One thing I find myself going over quite a bit with my brides is how their makeup in person will look different then the professional photos from their photographer. A few things to note, does your photographer have a soft and airy feel? Then your makeup will likely look a bit subdued. Does your photographer take photos with high contrast and dark shadows? Then your makeup may look more dramatic in photos. Here is a great example of such differences in real life: I had makeup on this lovely model a few times already in the past. Knowing that with fine art photography the makeup would look more subdued, I opted to use a bit more color than I usually do in an attempt to show off her features differently. Swipe to see an iPhone pic of what it looked like in real life. Makeup Artists, talk to your clients or (brides) talk to your makeup artist. An experienced makeup artist should be able to explain these things to their bride’s and navigate then through the process. #makeupbykevan #makeuptutorial #bridalmakeup #romanticmakeup #mua #bridal Photography: @mikaelamariephoto

What’s your favorite thing about kids? I love their voices and silly things they say. This kid. I never knew love like this till he came along and taught me so much. About myself, about feelings, about love and a whole lot of patience 😂. I’m so grateful I get to parent alongside @mikejimlarry and watch this boy grow (way too fast might I add). I love you Nolan Vaughn. #boymom #babybun #momlife #alwayswantstobeoutside #toddler #toddlerlife #makeupandmomming #love #patience #heart

Sunday funday. When both of your appointments fall through and you get to spend the day with your boys in the rain.. it’s not such a bad thing. We can be found at Trader Joe’s buying our favorite raviolis before we have some friends come over and Mike and I are babysitting two more kids. Pray for us. This could be entertaining lol.

BRIDE TIP: Book your hair and makeup 9-12 months in advance. I’ve been noticing more and more brides waiting till a month or two out and sadly, they are left with very few options for their big day. Booking further out will give you your pick of the crop and you won’t be left nervous your bridal look will suffer. Personally, I only book one wedding per day to ensure I am available to give the bride the attention necessary. On that note, here’s more bridal beauty for you today with makeup by yours truly. #makeupbykevan photo by @stephdeephoto planning by @sarahkazemburgevents Hair by @styledbyannafazio and beautiful bride Brianna @lambbbo #romanticmakeup #bridalmakeup #airlieva #dcmakeupartist #dcmua #makeupartist #bridalbeauty #bridaltips #vamua #virginiamua #virginiamakeupartist #marylandmua #marylandmakeupartist
