You’ve found the perfect match!
I am an Indiana makeup artist, specializing in wedding makeup for brides and bridal parties. I offer airbrush foundation and false lashes with every makeup application and am confident that the makeup I do will withstand even the hottest summer temperatures and all of those happy tears! I consider myself to be an approachable artist, who is very easy to work with. I’m also incredibly patient and organized, and am often told that I bring a calm presence to the wedding day. I will also make things easy for you, by setting up a suggested makeup timeline, based on the number of girls having makeup done and the time you need to be ready for pictures. This will ensure that we have plenty of time for you and your girls on that day, and you won’t feel rushed. As you begin planning your wedding, I will also be happy to help you by referring other trusted wedding vendors! Please don’t hesitate to ask if you need recommendations for hairstylists that will work on location, photographers, videographers, florists, DJs, etc.
My passion, when it comes to the makeup industry, is working with brides! I hope to be given the opportunity to make you feel prettier than ever on your wedding day. I care about my brides & do everything I can to make sure that they are 100% happy with my work. I can honestly say that just about every bride I work with ends up feeling like a friend by the time we’re done!
If this sounds like something you are interested in having as part of your wedding day, allow me to walk you through the process for securing me as your makeup artist:
1) Book Your Date
- Get in touch to check availability (my rates can be viewed in the services tabs below). You can contact me by using the “Get in touch” hyperlink at the start of this section, or visit the contact page on my website & fill out that form. You can also email me directly @ firstname.lastname@example.org **Even if I am already booked, I will always reply to ALL inquiries. If you haven’t heard back from me, I have not received your communication. Please also feel free to call me or text me @ 219-781-5755!
- Popular dates during peak wedding season (especially Saturday dates, April-October) are often booked 12-18 months in advance. Please don’t delay if you are interested in using my services, as it is better to be in touch sooner than later. However, even if it is close to your date and you’re wondering if I have availability, please inquire! Sometimes I will still have peak dates open that haven’t booked far in advance. Regardless, if I am not available, I will be happy to refer another artist!
- Dates are reserved with a signed contract and payment of $125.00 non-refundable retainer. The remaining $100 bridal balance, with any associated travel fees, will be due at the makeup preview. Any additional applications need to be paid in full at the time of service on the wedding day. Services may always be added if time allows, but no applications may be subtracted from the signed contract.
- **Please note due to the high demand for on location services on the weekends, there is a 6 person minimum (bride +5) for Saturday/Sunday bookings. A 5 person minimum (bride +4) will apply for Friday weddings. The minimums can be met by any person (does not exclusively pertain to bridal party members). It can include mom(s), grandmothers, personal attendants, etc. This 6 person minimum applies to locations within approximately 30 miles of Dyer, IN (including, but not limited to: Schererville, Dyer, Highland, Munster, St. John, Crown Point, Cedar Lake, Griffith, Lowell, Merrillville, Hobart, Hammond, Valparaiso, Chesterton, Portage, etc.). I am absolutely willing to travel beyond those limits, but the minimum # of makeup applications will increase to 7+ people, depending on the additional distance and a minimal travel fee may apply. I will also travel to “The Allure” in LaPorte and “Sandy Pines” in Demotte, free of any additional mileage charge as a courtesty to the bride, since I am on their preferred vendors list.
- Client is also responsible for any associated travel fees such as tolls/parking.
2) Trial Run/Makeup Preview
- Closer to your date, we will meet @ the salon I work out of in St. John, IN and do a makeup preview. We will do a full consultation and work together to create your wedding day look. I want you to be confident and excited about the way that your makeup will look on the wedding day & I will make sure that you are before you leave the trial.
- I encourage my brides to bring in any pictures that you would like for me to reference to. This can include pictures of makeup looks that you like, pictures of yourself and how you typically wear your own makeup, wedding color swatches, pictures of your dress/bridesmaids dresses, flowers, or anything else that will help me bring your vision to life! I also encourage you to wear something white, so that we can see how the makeup will look next to a white wedding dress.
- I’ll do a full, detailed makeup application which includes airbrushing, full face of makeup, and false individual lashes
- We can also confirm your prep location and discuss wedding day timelines
- Due to the fact that weekends are reserved for my wedding bookings, trial runs are done by appointment, Monday-Thursday. I can arrange to do evening appointments, but I strongly encourage daytime appointments if possible, so that we can take advantage of using natural lighting. I do the wedding day makeup in natural lighting, and it is ideal to have the lighting as similar as possible for the trial.
3) Wedding Day Makeup Service
- On the wedding day, I am happy to come to your prep location
- I strive to provide a flawless and long-wearing makeup application for you and your bridesmaids
- Includes airbrushing, full face of makeup, false lashes and complimentary touch up kit
- My goal is to make you feel prettier than you’ve ever felt before
I realize that your choice of makeup artist can have a profound impact on how you feel during the start of your wedding day. I am very confident in my artistry, but also in my ability to bring a lighthearted and calm presence to the “getting ready” portion of your day. I promise to be timely, considerate and always professional. I am definitely a “people person” and something I enjoy most about what I do is getting to know my brides & their bridal party members. I LOVE to be around love!! There are few things more heartwarming than being with a bride on her wedding morning, making her feel pretty, while she is surrounded by her closest girls & family members. I have laughed and cried with many of the clients in my chair and truly feel blessed to be a part of such a special day. Choosing me to provide makeup services for you is something that I take very seriously, and consider the highest honor.
Allow me to share a few reasons why you can trust me as your wedding makeup artist:
- I strive to provide flawless makeup applications, with long-wearing results, requiring minimal touch ups
- I have 20 years of experience under my belt, so you can be confident that you’re in the hands of a professional
- I’m a licensed and insured esthetician, who’s working under the state regulations for Indiana makeup artists
- This is not just my career, it is my passion & I do everything I can to make sure that passion reflects in my work

This will include the following:
- Makeup Preview/Trial Run
- A detailed consultation will take place at your trial run appointment. During this consultation we will discuss your wedding day details, which will be taken into consideration as I am coming up with the makeup look. Just a few of the things that we will discuss will be your wedding day color palette, dress style & color, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, wedding theme (if applicable), comfort level with makeup, etc. I will also want to view any color swatches that you have for the wedding & reference to any pictures that you would like to show me. I definitely encourage my brides to bring in reference images of make up looks that you love. While it is not mandatory, it does definitely help to put us on the “same page” and will give me a better idea as to what your vision is for that day.
- The makeup application itself will include a full face of makeup, airbrushing and individual flare lashes
- ** Please note, the trial run will need to take place on a weekday (M-Th), as the weekends (Fri/Sat/Sun) are reserved for wedding bookings. I will travel to your location of choice on the wedding day, but you will be asked to come to me for the trial run.The trial run is done at the salon I work out of in St. John. Also, while it is not mandatory, I prefer (and advise) that we do the trial during daylight hours, so that we can take advantage of using natural lighting (since that is the lighting I will want to do the makeup in on the wedding day).
