More clean beauty. @stil.works came through with these rad ombré earrings for me the night before the shoot and now I wear them at least twice a week because I’m obsessed. She makes so many styles and I love them all, so go give them a peek!

Dewy skin + wet hair. Inspired by a Vogue Thailand editorial from a couple years ago

Skin is in 🙌🏼 My philosophy with makeup is to let real skin shine through and do its thing. Unless the direction of the shoot demands otherwise, I always try to use the least amount of makeup possible on the skin while still correcting what I need to and getting the necessary coverage.
✨Real skin is beautiful, and my job is to conceal and disguise any distractions in an undetectable way so the model or actor’s skin looks its natural best.
✨Don’t get me wrong, in shots like this retouching still goes on, but if I do my job right the retoucher should have less work to do and only be retouching things that I can’t do with makeup (ie smoothing textures from a raised blemish I concealed, removing veins from the whites of the eyes, etc).
✨There’s always more to learn and ways to improve, but I’m pretty happy with how this shoot turned out.
✨P.S. Fun fact: I gathered these reed/weed things from a marsh by my house. Free props for the win!

A little thing called postpartum depression has been rocking my world lately. Working is a nice relief, but basically anything else (ie maintaining a consistent Instagram account) feels like a monumental challenge.🏋🏼‍♀️
I’m proud of my work and the things I’m creating, it’s just been hard to find the energy to plan posts out to share. So I’m posting when I can, but meanwhile I’m just working and trying to practice some self-care 🧘🏼‍♀️(as much as that’s possible while also taking care of a 10-month-old baby).
🔗The part about Instagram that I enjoy the most is the connection factor anyway (not really posting). I love that I get to connect with strangers over anything from makeup products to meal plans to new mom stuff to industry trends and everything in between.
I love communities and connection. So if I reply to your stories and you don’t know me, or I comment on your post and we’ve never talked, it’s because I like being a part of this Instagram community, and I appreciate you connecting with me too 🤗

Remember that midnight blue and gold smokey eye from my IG stories on Saturday? (it’s saved under the B & A highlights if you don’t) Here’s how it turned out in the final product 🙌🏼

Also, we’re doing family pictures on Friday with my parents, siblings and our kids and I need help choosing outfits 😩

I tried to pick a color scheme that would have options that everyone could look good in, but it’s hard because we all have different coloring and colors that look best on us (ex. I’m blonde, blue eyes w/ yellow undertones while my mom and brother have olive undertones, dark hair, and dark eyes). So we’re trying to go with a combo of navy, aqua-ish, and salmon-ish + neutrals. I look way better in the more muted versions of those colors (dusty blue vs. aqua, dusty rose vs. bright salmon, etc) but I wanted there to be options for everyone.
Soooo in summary, where should I look for outfits for my husband, Arlo and I before Friday??😱 I want there to be patterns and texture so we’re not all just in solid colors circa 2007-style. Any suggestions??

Before and after of prom makeup on Grace last weekend. She’s obviously a natural beauty 🙌🏼 and she wanted something soft with some natural-looking strip lashes. I love how the type of look she wanted on her eyes accentuated them without overpowering them.
✨My goal as a makeup artist (unless requested otherwise) is always to accentuate my clients’ natural features rather than drawing attention to the makeup itself.
✨So my goal is that in the end, people will say things like “You look so beautiful!” to the client rather than “I love your eye makeup” or “I love your contour!” The look should work together as a whole to bring out your own natural beauty.

Another before and after, this time from a studio job with a model. I had fun bringing out the green in her eyes and using eyeshadow placement to make them look more up-tilted.
✨FUN FACT: almond-shaped, up-tilted eyes are considered the epitome of beauty (at least in western cultures). So when I do beauty makeup on someone, I’m usually trying to use specific color choices and specific shadow placements to “trick” the viewer’s eyes into thinking the client was born with eyes that look more like the epitome of beauty.
Everything I do with makeup serves a purpose!

I usually put these before and after posts in my highlighted stories, but I decided
I should probably share a few on my main feed as well.
This is a sweet woman I did for her daughter’s wedding this past weekend. (To see more before and afters, click on my profile and then look for the story highlight circle with the Polaroid icon that says “B & A”)
