Linh wanted very dark smokey eyes, so I used MAC’s carbon eye shadows blended with Saddle eye shadow to create a softer dark smokey eye. She wanted simple hair so I gave her some loose waves and and teased it for some volume. We were both very happy with the finished look.
I would consider this makeup look and color theory as my “signature bridal look” I love bronze/browns on the eyes and baby pinks on cheeks and lips, along with glowing skin, this is what I envisioned brides looking like, simple, elegant and natural.
Llse wanted something fun but not too crazy for a girls night out in L.A. I decided to give her smokey eyes because she normally doesn’t wear any makeup and she didn’t want colors. I wanted her eyes to stand out the most so I used silver and black eye shadows and kept the rest of her makeup fresh and natural. (These pictures were taken with my iPhone so she looks a bit more washed out then in person)
– Second look, more natural day time makeup.
I did a very quick makeup trial for Stephanie, for a future event she will be having this summer. Like most of my clients, she wanted to look pretty and also natural and had requested brown shadows, pink cheeks and lips. The trial took about 30 mins and we played with lots of browns and pinks to achieve the look she wanted. We were both very pleased with the results. Yay!
I did Abbe’s hair and makeup for both her engagement photos and wedding day. Abbe and Bryan’s wedding was located in Newport, CA. They had an outdoor ceremony therefore I did simple hair and makeup that didn’t look overly done in the day time, yet still elegant and pretty for the nighttime reception. Abbe wanted natural makeup so I focused a lot on making her skin look absolutely flawless and radiant, soft smokey browns on the eyes and natural pinks on the lips.

I did My-Linh’s makeup at the Saigon Performing Arts Center, she was the MC for the Vietface Event for the evening. She wanted makeup that would brighten up her face and look more youthful. I enhanced her features by using very natural colors and using lots of contouring and highlighting techniques. I added 4 pieces of hair extension clip-ons to add volume and length. The result was something we were both very happy with, simple and elegant hair and makeup.
