✦ Natural. Glowing. Whimsy. Effortless. Sun kissed, shimmery and golden. Glossy. Blushes and peach tones. I love unique and boldly understated. Freckles and brows. If this speaks to you, let’s make magic.✦
Hey ya’ll, this is the important stuff:
In an attempt to be gender inclusive + celebrate all folx love stories, the terms ‘Nearlywed’ and ‘Partner’ have replaced traditional terms (aka bride/groom.) Please share with me the title you prefer for yourself + the people surrounding you!
As of June 1, 2021, I will no longer be providing wedding hair services. I have wonderful recommendations available upon request for hair stylists in the wedding industry! I am comfortable accommodating large parties of 10 or less, so long as your timing + schedule allow it. For parties of 4 or more, I do bring an assistant, please plan accordingly for get ready space. The average makeup application time is 30 minutes for wedding party or parents and 45 minutes for the nearlywed.
As much as I‘d love to work with every inquiry, I want to make sure we are a good fit!
Please look at my photos to see if my style is what you’re looking for. I use airbrush makeup by Temptu for foundations unless you bring a specific base with you to use.
I love shimmery eyes and subtle lashes, I try to enhance your natural beauty while balancing the inevitable “photo editing” that tends to tone down the appearance of makeup.
I love glossy lips and I’m notorious for leaving a handful of lip colors as I walk out the door.
I love dewy skin + freckles.
The best version of you.
Keep in mind, Pinterest is a tool, albeit handy, it can be deceiving.
Neutral makeup is not the same as natural makeup.
Pick colors you like on people who have similar features.
Please take care of your skin leading up to such a big day, I can’t change texture.
Drink water, moisturize, wear sunblock, get a facial + wax/hair removal of choice. Get a good nights sleep. If you fancy a White Claw or 10, save the heavy drankin’ for the reception, hangover skin isn’t forgiving. Did I mention drink water?
I’ma brand new Mum + someone’s whole a$s wife.
I love Dolly Parton, Dogs, Cherry Vanilla Coke Zero + Disco Balls.
I listen to ratchet rap, bluegrass, Bob Segar + everything in between.
Wildflowers + Golden Hours, Plants + Polaroids.

When you are planning your agenda for your wedding day, please coordinate with both your photographer, hair stylist + makeup artist. Each of us has different preferences, and depending on the photos you want, different timelines. A loose timeline is ideal as opposed to a ‘down to the minute‘ timeline, and your vendor team usually knows what will work best!
When inquiring about weddings, please include the following in your email:
-First + Last Name, Pronouns
-Wedding Date + Venue
-A little bit about you, your partner + your vision.
-Photos of makeup inspiration + your favorite selfie.

I don’t have a limit for how far I will travel, I’m happy to do destinations or elopements! However if your destination is more than 2 hours away from Auburn, Maine please arrange lodging accommodations for the night before. Parking, tolls or additional costs will be added to travel fee.
*Add-on’s DAY OF weddings will be an additional 20% to standard service cost*
