Wedding Makeup

It’s really important to me that my clients look like themselves. A wedding day is not the day to ‘reinvent the wheel’ and change the way a client looks. I believe in bringing out each person’s natural beauty and showcasing what makes them feel beautiful. If you have big bright eyes, bring some drama to those. If you have pillowy lips or great cheekbones… you get the idea. False lashes are always an option and often encouraged, but always natural. Each client receives a lip touch-up with their makeup application.

The Wedding Makeup Experience

Step One

Skin Consultation

The experience begins with a Complimentary Skin Consultation with me in my small, peaceful studio in the heart of Ridgefield, CT. The Complimentary Skin Consultation takes place, ideally, soon after booking and allows you to work on your skincare regimen even before your makeup preview. When I work with clients to achieve healthy skin prior to the wedding, it is something that will benefit you, not only through the wedding day, but well beyond the honeymoon.

Step Two

Makeup Trial

Approximately 4-10 weeks before the wedding, comes the makeup preview where I meet with you 1-1. During your preview, we will discuss your vision, skin, and any questions you may have. I will then work with you to create your customized look. If you are between a couple looks or unsure on your lip color, do not worry! We will work together to get your vision right. I take photos of each look I create and write down all details for duplication on the wedding day.

Step Three


In the weeks leading up to the wedding day, I will work with you or your planner to create a detailed schedule that provides a smooth wedding day experience. It will show what time I arrive, what time each person is in my makeup chair, what time I complete, important information like phone numbers and allergies or special requests. I will then send this to you so you can give it to your group and they all know where they are expected to be.

The Big Day

Wedding Day

I will come to you on the wedding day! I bring everything I need: makeup chairs, lighting, extension cords, tables, etc. I want this day to be as seamless as possible, so I am prepared for the unexpected. After I complete makeup for each client, I will do one last look at each client to be sure everything is just as I created it to be. I then clean up my station and leave the space just as I found it.

After the initial makeup services, you will have a trained artist that will see you through the photographer’s lens to adjust anything necessary like fluffing your veil, getting flyways out of your lip gloss and doing touch ups after you have cried at the ceremony. I will also be, essentially, your personal assistant, at your beck and call. I will be doing things like, carrying your veil, finding the ring bearer, hemming groom’s pants, getting you a protein bar or carrying your water. 

I have pulled ticks off of a bride’s gown, applied deodorant to the bride as she was rushing down to the aisle, gotten stains out of flower girls dresses right before photos and more. When I am there with you for those hours after makeup services are completed, it takes the pressure off of your loved ones so they can be present and enjoy your special day as well. A wedding day is special and memorable for everyone in the couple’s lives, not just the couple!
