    #30daysgorgeous- 30 days of beauty, inspiration, creativity, collaboration. 30 photoshoots. 30 days. As of this writing, I am on Day 3 after the project. The first two days after were spent doing nothing. And I mean nothing. Aside from basic personal hygiene, cuz you know, I’m married and that man has to sleep in the same bed as me. I believe the southern phrase is “Bless his heart.” (Should out to my Dixie brides for schooling me on that one! Hope I’m…

  • Zombie Makeup Las Vegas

    October 14, 2013No comments yet

    Which came first, the Lady Gaga zombie or Walking Dead? I confess, I’ve never seen a single episode of the super popular zombie show, but Chief Dude (Rob, the charming guy you talk to when you book) is a huge fan. And so are lot’s of people! The requests for zombie makeup have been coming in thick and fast for the past few years. Two Halloweens ago, we partnered with Pin-Up Bride Planners to sponsor a wedding-industry Halloween party here…

  • Halloween Makeup Las Vegas – Little Black Dress Halloween Costume

    October 3, 201324 comments

    Las Vegas does Halloween right… the Fetish and Fantasy Ball, the costume contests, all the events that bring out the dark, the weird, the curious. And we are no exception- Halloween makeup is our time to break out of the soft pinks and sweet browns into full-on costume makeup. Bianca  loves working with latex to create gruesome looks- like the eerie cut smile of the Black Dahlia. Alana imagined what it would be like if the black-and-white flappers captured in…

  • Bridal Spectacular – Winter 2013!

    February 7, 2013No comments yet

    What a fantastic weekend! Ok, maybe it was two weekends ago. But what can we say? We are still crooning over here about the wonderful show. All the cool kids have a booth the Bridal Spectacular, but our debut year in 2012 was anything but cool. And when I say not cool, I mean safety-scissors-double-sided-sticky-tape-Velcro not cool. It blows my mind how sexy these designers can make 10 cubic feet look like, and we had anything but swagger with our sad…

  • Dia De Los Muertos: Halloween Makeup Las Vegas

    November 1, 2012No comments yet

    Halloween makeup Las Vegas is the BEST. Between all the parties, especially the Fetish and Fantasy Ball, we get some of the coolest requests! It seemed appropriate to save these images for today, Dios De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. What’s that you say? Halloween was yesterday? Well, pull yourself out of that candy-and-cider coma because your about to get schooled, Wikipedia explains: “Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the…

    If you’ve been hanging around us for any time at all, you know we are all for a good band-wagon ride. This year, we once again took the steering wheel (or reigns? do bandwagons have power steering?) with Altenburg Studio for our second-annual Patriotic Pin-Ups and we gotta say- we knocked our own socks off! The event kicked off at 9am on Saturday, June 30th. Our two day event is a once-a-year opportunity to channel your inner Betty Page and…

  • Pin-Ups for Patriots is BACK!!

    June 9, 2012No comments yet

        Last year, we raised $6,500 in TWO DAYS benefiting the homeless military veterans of Las Vegas! This substantial amount was enough to help get the new Radcliffe Building open, a temporary housing facility to get our vets off the streets and into stability. Be a pin-up and be a patriot, come join us for our annual fundraiser to say THANK YOU to the men and women who have served our country. ALL PROCEEDS BENEFIT NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION US VETS.

  • Jennifer + Sean – Anthem Country Club Wedding

    Jennifer is such a trooper. This sweet bride-to-be was cool as a cucumber in the week leading up to her wedding when she suddenly had to make a venue change. Hayley and Alana had a chance to meet with this posh chick about a month before during her engagment session with the ultimate Ron Miller and were stoked to be a part of her wedding. She never lost her spunk even with the unexpected changes that came her way, and…

  • What NOT to Wear: Becky

    March 8, 2012No comments yet

    While there’s not too many shows regularly taping here in Vegas, plenty stop by to get the sparkling backdrop that only this city can provide. One lucky day last June, I received a call from the powers that be at TLC who were looking for a Las Vegas makeup artist  for a What NOT to Wear Reveal… and the show contestant was a sweet girl named Becky, the personal assistant to Cheryl Burke and Jenny McCarthy! (No pressure or anything!)…

    Las Vegas Wedding Hair and Makeup team Amelia C & Co on Randy to the Rescue! On Feb 18th, TLC’s newest show Randy to the Rescue stopped by the wedding capital of the world to film and episode and Amelia C & Co was invited to participate!!! To say we were excited was an understatement!    Most of you brides-to-be have probably already developed a very deep, personal relationship with Mr. Randy Fenoli from swooning over his exquisite gowns on his…
