Bridal Makeup

Makeup artistry has many levels and variations to it. Over the past 7 years I've had experiences in many of these areas, but I've found my niche in Bridal makeup. I love the intimacy of a one-on-one relationship with a bride, her friends, family, and being apart of that special moment. I pride myself on being a good listener, which supports me when choosing a look that will bring forth my bride's most radiant self. It's a joint collaboration that takes place when deciding on what will ultimately have her feeling comfortable and confident on her big day. The memories that are made during a wedding last a life time, and I feel humbled and honored each time a bride picks me to be a part of this moment.


KIND words...


Exquisite elegance! I had the pleasure of having Ashley do my wedding makeup in May 201 3 and the results were flawlessly beautiful. Ashley’s calm and stable presence created a serene and relaxed environment the hours before my walk down the aisle. From my personal consultation to the day of the event, Ashley listened to all my creative ideas and concerns while helping me choose the best products and styles to enhance my bridal visage. Her pristine application technique allowed my makeup to last hours despite many hours of socializing and dancing- a true must for every bride! Ashley’s artistic eye and natural ability allowed me to feel confident and glamorous while maintaining the perfect classic look I had envisioned. Ashley is a true artist!

Ashely is an amazing makeup artist that I highly recommend for any occasion you may have! I used her for my wedding in March of 2013; she did my makeup as well as 4 bridesmaids and the 2 mothers. Everyone looked absolutely beautiful! Ashley made each person look glamourous while still being able to capture and enhance each individual’s natural beauty. Some of my bridesmaids have had terrible experiences with other makeup artists in the past, which made them hesitant to get their makeup done for my wedding. Once they saw how transformed I look after my trial and how pleased I was, all of the bridesmaids felt confident in Ashley’s abilities as a makeup artist. I wholeheartedly trusted Ashley to let her do “her own thing” with my makeup (both for the trial and wedding), yet she was also able to take direction well from some of the women who were a little more “picky” about their makeup. As for the mothers, Ashley made each of them look sophisticated and youthful; I have never seen my moms look more beautiful or act more confident than from the results of Ashley’s “magic”. Ashley maintained her composure the morning of the wedding and was so easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. She is extremely talented, personable, friendly, and easygoing while being able to maintaining her professionalism. I have referred all of my friends and family to her and will continue to do so in the future. I look forward to my next special event so that I can use Ashley.

Ashley did my makeup for my wedding as well as for the two other girls in my bridal party.  I can honestly say it was the best the three of us have ever looked (and Ive known these girls all my life!). Ashley has a way of creating a fabulous balance of natural beauty with a hint of extra glamour every bride should have on their wedding day. Because I had seen her work before I felt confident in letting her do whatever she wanted and I couldn’t have been more pleased.

It was a pleasure working with Ashley! Starting with my consultation , she entertained all my ideas ( be it a natural look, glamourous, or hollywood scarlet.) We had a lot of fun trying to find the perfect look for my big day. I had the luxury of Ashley traveling with me to my destination wedding in the Dominican Republic.  She did my makeup for my rehearsal dinner and touched me up after some great teary-eyed speeches.Then the big day ! I loved the way everything turned out! She did all my bridesmaids makeupand everyone looked great! She also was there to touch me up after I did the mambo slide till I was red in the face.  All my pictures came out amazing! Thank you Ashley for being part of my special day and keeping my look flawless throughout night!

I had the pleasure of having Ashley do the makeup for my wedding in March 2012. She worked all morning on my grandmothers, mother and mother-in-law, sister and sister-in-law, and me. I had worked with her two times before (a New Year’s Eve party and my bridal shower) and I knew she was just the person for the special day. Her work was flawless and beautiful, and her attitude and work ethic were admirable. She can work with a range of skin types and ages (from grandmas to brides), and she has a such a great eye that she is able to create the best looks to flatter everyone for every occasion. I highly recommend Ashley for any event that requires you, or your friends and family, to look extra special.

I am so happy that you were able to do my makeup for my wedding.  It came out better then I could have imagined. You’re always a pleasure to work with and you made me look amazing for my big day. I can’t thank you enough for everything!

A great makeup artist is one of the most important parts for completing a special day.  I have been a client of Ashley’s for over 8 years. There is no other makeup artist I would have trusted for the most important days of my life. Ashley has done my makeup for my bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, wedding, and any other events that I have gone to. She is a talented, driven, and creative artist and I love being her client.
