The look of love
Is saying so much more than
Just words could every say
And what my heart has heard
Well it takes my breath away…


BOHO BEAUTY in the GROVE - Bride Caitlin


I’m so excited to share some of Caitlin’s wedding photos. She was truly one of my favorite brides that I created a make-up look for in 2019! When you’ve got the mystifying allure of a stunningly beautiful, free-spirited bride getting ready for her makeup and hair at an urban, chic venue like the Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Coconut Grove, you’ve got pure magic!

Beautiful bride Caitlin’s eye for detail and impeccable taste was evident throughout the day. The afternoon of beauty started in her glamorous bridal suite in the Gaudi-inspired hotel where her not-so-traditional ceremony was held overlooking bohemian Coconut Grove by the enchanting Biscayne Bay.

I designed Caitlin’s bridal makeup look to accentuate her jaw-dropping, crocheted lace gown, which was synonymous with her boho aesthetic.

To create my bride’s romantic Vamp, yet Romantic look, I first prepared Caitlin’s face by giving her a relaxing facial.

I then used a mixture of delicate and luxurious makeup techniques enhanced with a wine/toned palette to merge with the tropical luxurious beauty of the Zen-like tranquility of the Mayfair.

Not only was this bride’s inner and outer beauty my aesthetic inspiration that day, but the unique ambience and ornate detailing from the architectural gem of the Mayfair, as well.

Did you know that choosing your wedding day makeup can be the hardest decision you’ll make after choosing the groom?


Bridal Makeup And Your BOHO Dress


While your dress is definitely crucial, your bridal makeup is equally important — not only will everyone will be looking at your face and its radiant glow, but photos are forever. A good rule of thumb is to start thinking about your makeup early on — perhaps right after you lock down your boho dress. That way your whole entire vibe goes together. So, if you’re going with a boho vintage-inspired lace gown like the one seen here, think ethereal style when it comes to your makeup. Continue Reading…

Indian Bridal Makeup – Jesica’s Romantic Morning

In the wee hours (4am to be exact) of the morning, last August, the beautiful bride to be, Jesica, arrived at my studio to have her bridal makeup and hair artistically done for her Bal Harbour Beach sunrise engagement photo shoot. Choosing the right bridal makeup look is one of the most exciting parts of planning for your big day. I wanted to create a makeup look that was an extension of who Jesica is.The aim was to create a look that was effortless. That was the one word that encapsulates what Jesica wanted to achieve when it came to her bridal e-shoot makeup.

All I can say is “Looking Effortless Takes Effort!” Often, that which looks effortless takes the greatest of skill and artistry to achieve. When you combine such a lovely bride (inside and out) and the incredibly talented photography of Otto Haring, the result is an over-the-top romantic look, and if weddings are anything, they are just that. It was a great pleasure enhancing Jesica’s beauty while making it look like we didn’t have try too hard. Check out the engagement photos:
