Sara’s mom emailed me about makeup, and I went to their home in Aledo to do her makeup. Luckily they were extremely patient, because Spencer was in tow, and had just woken up from a nap.
Sara is beautiful and has a naturally exotic look. She wanted to go vintage.(Something tells me this is a trend….) I tried to meet halfway with a smokier cat eye, lashes, and a pop of teal in the inner corner.(I am in love with teal lately, sorry. Nails are teal, I wear teal eyeliner, I wish I had a teal unicorn….)
Anyway, Sara and her mom were so great, Sara is a theater buff and is currently in Aledo’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof” and is planning to enter Auburn in the fall with a double major of Theater and Public Relations.
This is Sara, she’s going places!!

Megan contacted me about doing her makeup for her July 28th wedding, and today was her trial run/bridal photos in Bridgeport.
We hadn’t discussed style, but when I arrived and she told me what she wanted I knew immediately what I wanted to do. Vintage. Old Hollywood glamour.

A stylized version for an upturned cat eye, with some purple and teal pops of color to match the dark purple flowers and peacock feathers of her bouquet.(With LASHES of course!!) A matte red lip, (Cruella Velvet Matte Pencil by NARS) and porcelain, matte complection with pink blush. She is beautiful, and I look forward to her August wedding, thank goodness it’s inside!! (And thank goodness for NARS oil free primer!!)



I had the wonderful honor of doing the makeup of Katie Schmid and her bridal party at the home of her mother, Claire. I did her sister Mary’s makeup for her wedding, and we did it the same way, at her mother’s home, friends coming and going, listening to music, and relaxing.
The wedding was at 6pm, so we got an early start to make sure the party could leave for photos by 2:30pm. Amazing hairstylist Sarah Walker-Brittain of the Bee’s Knees Hair Studio in Fort Worth was booked for the entire day, and did everyone’s hair based on their taste. Makeup was also done based on the individual’s style. The styles ran the gamut, there were the “I NEVER wear makeup” variety, and The “I LOVE makeup and wear a TON” types as well.

I pride myself in doing exactly what the client wants. I don’t want to freak anyone out, or make them feel uncomfortable asking to change something. I really don’t get offended if it’s not what you envisioned, and you would like me to change it. I ultimately want you to feel beautiful, and not at all self concious.

Mary, for instance(First photos in the gallery) loves a dark dramatic eye. False lashes, lots of blush. She wants to look like she’s wearing makeup.

The Bride’s sister in law, on the other hand, (Second person) wears no makeup on a regular basis, so I just accentuated her beautiful features, and evened out her skin.

The photos of Katie(she’s the last one) show her without false lashes, and with. Most of the girls opted for lashes, and I provide those. I just wanted to show what a difference they make.

The gallery below is an example of a well planned and executed relaxing wedding day preparation. Congratulations Katie Schmid-Coffee!!
