I get so many requests for before and after pictures so I thought I'd post some. I used airbrush foundation to even out her skin tone and then filled in her brows. I chose warm rose golds and champange shadows for her eyes, coral-pink blushes on her cheeks and did light contouring. Her lips were a done with a warm pink liner and gloss. She was going for a pretty daytime look, which I think came out beautifully. BEFORE AFTER


Here is one of the most requested haircuts I've gotten all year. Her naturally wavy texture works so well with it, and the highlights add a lot of brightness. BEFORE AFTER Voilà. Gorgeous!

Beach Wedding

My lovely Bride today was having an intimate beach wedding and wanted a natural makeup look with enough definition for the pictures. She wanted hair with volume but still smooth and sleek. Her daughter was the maid-of-honor and also wanted a natural yet defined look for the pictures. Here are some of the finished photos: Congratulations!

I was honored when a good childhood friend asked me to to do the hair for her future sister-in-law and her bridal party. The bride had so many great ideas and was very up-to-date with the latest styles, which was a lot of fun for me. We decided on creating a hair style that was modern and flowy, that she could take down for the reception dinner. I loved a Tom Ford lip color she introduced me to, which has become a guilty pleasure in my makeup kit and a new favorite for many of the brides I've worked with lately. I am so happy for these two love birds! Congrats Jen&Richard XO Click on the photo to see this wedding on Style Me Pretty blog Wedding location: Hapuna Prince Hotel Wedding Coordinat

Before and After

Todays Bride wanted a low side-bun with curls and a braid. She also wanted a natural yet defined look for her morning wedding. I used a longwearing liquid foundation makeup and did light contouring with a combination of dark and light foundations. I also used contouring powders to set the look along with a touch of peachy-pink blush. The bride had her own lash extensions in, so I did a find top liner and extended the corners of her eyes with minimal shading. She also had her own longwear lip color, which was a pretty bright light pink, which looked great (and very natural) in the photos. Here is an example of the bride before her makeup, and after:

Engagement Photos

Another magical photo shoot I wanted to share. It really is amazing how Rebecca was able to capture the beauty of the Big Island and its versatility. We have around 8 different types of climate zones on our Island, which is why I choose to use longwearing and waterproof makeup that can withstand the elements. I had fun playing up Mojan's gorgous eyes. She wanted a natural look that would still stand out so we did a grey smokey eye with dramatic lashes. We did light contouring under her cheekbones and used a subtle peachy-pink blush. Since her eyes were the focal point we used a nude-pink lip color. I gave volume to her hair and beachy waves by curling and setting them. I was glad to see it
