The girl behind the glam

I am a Seattle based certified bridal makeup artist that specializes in "you but better" looks that are timeless and classic. As a hopeless romantic, I found my passion in bridal makeup. I love meeting new brides, connecting with them and getting to learn all about their vision for their wedding day. I started my bridal makeup business to provide beauty-obsessed millennials, like myself, with a luxury experience that goes above and beyond what you would expect in a makeup artist.

I have always had a love of learning from the greatest makeup artists and being inspired- from being a young girl playing with my mom's makeup collection, to doing all of my girlfriend's makeup for high school dances, college events, and their weddings, to reading all of Bobbi Brown's makeup books.
