  • 2014: What An Epic Year

    December 30, 2014No comments yet

    You know that scene from Finding Nemo where the turtle is all like “Whoaaaaa!” and then is all like “Whoooooooa”? That’s totally been our year here at Amelia C & Co. There were some totally righteous WHOA’s and a very tearful whoa… So here we go. (I’m not entirely sure, but I think I just made a haiku…) I get all kinds of worked up at the start of the year, there’s so many possibilities and so much to look forward…


  • Same Love Styled Shoot- Gay Weddings Las Vegas

    December 6, 2014No comments yet

    We love our hottie lezzies!! Ok, we love our fabulous gay boyfriends too, but trust me when I say that every gay man I’ve ever known who wanted to wear makeup is already doing it. So as wedding hair and makeup artists, I’m pretty certain that it’s all about the lesbians for us! And we couldn’t be more excited that same love is legal and here to stay in Las Vegas! Back in October when the race to marriage equality…

    It’s BACK!!! Patriotic Pinups 2014 is happening November 1&2nd, just in time to be a special gift for the holidays! If you’re new to this event, allow me to give you the sassy low down. PPLV is an annual fundraiser featuring Las Vegas pinup photography for two full days of kick-up-your-pumps lovely. The fundraiser is the brainchild of our ‘Co friend, Sue Altenburg of Altenburg Studio. Sue and I go waaaayyyy back. As in, she was the first photographer to give a…


  • Zombie Halloween Makeup Las Vegas

    September 6, 201422 comments

    In tandem with our Sugar Skull shoot, we wanted some Zombies. Call me crazy, but after a decade of doing beautiful brides I really haven’t had a ton of opportunities to work on my fake blood skills. Only in recent years has this proven to be a liability on my part- apparently, everyone from CEO’s to ravers wants to look as though they are ready for their cameo on The Walking Dead. Being this close to Halloween and having an…


  • Ms. Nevada United States 2014 Brittany Williams!

    July 21, 2014No comments yet

    Three cheers for Brittany! Our dazzling friend and model has won another title- Ms. Nevada United States 2014! Brittany has been a face for the ‘Co since before it was even an official, real-deal company. We met first at a clothing catalog shoot back in 2009, and have been buzzing and weaving and crossing paths ever since. She is one of my go-to, know it’s gonna look amazing models I call on when I’m working on a collaborative project. Even…


  • Why I Love My Cellulite

    July 14, 2014No comments yet

    I’ve got a robust ass that would make Becky’s tiny flat posterior flap in shock and appall. It’s got dimples and creases and is starting to lose it’s perky lift, and I love every single inch of it. Every cue we get from the media and general population at large tells us we gotta do something about our not-so-smooth ass. Smear a cream on it, Photoshop it, leg press it till you walk funny for three days. While I’ll admit…


  • Felina Vie: Pin Up Hair and Makeup with Tyler

    July 10, 2014No comments yet

    When the Viva Las Vegas shindig comes to town, the pin-ups come out with all their red-lipped, winged liner glory… it’s the quintessential rockin’ good time for greaser boys and pinned up girls! When ‘Co friend and partner Sue over at Altenburg Studio told us she had an opportunity to work with Felina Vie, who was in town for Rockabilly Weekend, we were all over it like corsets on a waistline. One of our resident hair and makeup artists, Tyler,…


  • Bridal Spectacular Shoot with Stephen Salazar

    July 2, 2014No comments yet

    In a previous post, we gave up the goods from our amazing shoot with Bridal Spectacular. In the past three years, we usually did just the one shoot for the magazine, but this year we scored and got invited to be a part of a second shoot as well. And when we heard that we’d be working with Stephen Salazar, it was just icing on the cupcake! The set was out at Lake Las Vegas, a swanky yet quiet area…


  • A hui hou, Alana

    June 20, 2014No comments yet

    Most of the time when I have to say good byes, it’s usually more like “Good Riddance!” As much as I’d like to think I’m some kind of super wise and uber svelte soul that can peacefully send someone on there way, they’ve usually done something that left me so disenchanted I showed them the door. So, having to say good bye to someone I really don’t want to say goodbye too is a rare thing. This whole well-wishing on…


  • Bridal Spectacular Shoot-Out

    April 8, 2014No comments yet

    If you grew up in Vegas, you know that the Bridal Spectacular show is where it’s AT for brides. I remember being little and hearing their signature jingle, “If your a bride to be, the place to be is the Spectacular Bridal Show!” Now that I’m a grown woman running the amazing Las Vegas wedding hair and makeup team that is the ‘Co, I actually get to be a part of the bridal fair. It’s pretty surreal! We got our…


  • #30daysgorgeous: Big Finale

    April 2, 2014No comments yet

    Rather than put this gem truly at the end, we are going to stick it right here in the middle. It’s pretty amazing, and while we could wait till everything has been posted, you could be swooning over the amazing gown collection at the Las Vegas designer wedding gown boutique, Couture Bride! There’s a saying that goes something like this- Dec 26th is the busiest day for wedding gown shops. Ok, so maybe it’s more of a rumor than a…


  • #30daysgorgeous: M Resort with Ella Gagiano

    March 9, 2014No comments yet

    Sometimes you just feel lucky, you know? Outside of the whole “lady luck” situation that Vegas has. This particular #30daysgorgeous session made me feel really lucky. Lucky that photographer Ella Gagiano was on board with the project. Lucky that I happen to know a beyond beautiful model who just so happens to be a friend. Lucky that our friends at Couture Bride would loan us yet another dress. Lucky that this team of ours is 5-star, all the way. Lucky that M…
