  • #30daysgorgeous: Groovy Kind of Love

    December 6, 2014No comments yet

    Coming up with 30 different photo shoot ideas in 30 days was no small feat, and I knew the easiest way to go about it was to start with expanding themes that already played into our daily wedding beauty requests. Since we knew we’d be recreating looks from the 20’s through the 40’s, we decided to tiptoe into the late 60’s for one of our #30daysgorgeous sessions. As far as fashion and beauty, the 70’s kind of get a bad…


  • 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…


  • Nevada Legalizes Gay Marriage!! Oh Happy Day!

    October 14, 2014No comments yet

    As is my routine, when I woke up on Oct 8th I rolled over in bed to do a quick scan of my emails. (Which is naughty, by the way. Don’t do that!) Immediately I saw a message from gal-pal and ‘Co cohort celebrity wedding designer Brit Bertino… Nevada legalizes gay marriage today!! I didn’t realize that this issue was being addressed in the Supreme Court right now- I admit that when it comes to politics, I usually pay really…


  • 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…


  • 8 Wedding Makeup Tips for the Modern Bride

    April 15, 2014No comments yet

    This Spring, it will be 10 years since I started doing wedding hair and makeup in Las Vegas. Just saying that doesn’t even seem real to me- 10 years? WOW. It doesn’t seem like that long ago I did my first wedding, but yet when I think about how fast things change it seems like it was several decades ago, instead of just one. When I started doing wedding hair, it was all about the curly and high up-do complete…


  • 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…


  • #30daysgorgeous: Blue Luck Bridal

    February 28, 2014No comments yet

    In the middle of our #30daysgorgeous project, we also had the massive bridal show that is Bridal Spectacular. Naturally, bridal shows at the start of the year are lavish productions, riding the wave of all the holiday engagements. (Here in the ‘biz, we know you husbands-to-be like to pop the question between Thanksgiving and Valentines day. There ya go, a little insider info for ya!) That means that between organizing, collaborating, and actually doing 30 shoots in 30 days, we…


  • A Professional Opinion on Mineral Makeup for Your Wedding Day

    October 18, 20132 comments

    Mineral makeup is wildly popular. Phrases coined “swirl, tap, buff” have taken on a cult following. Boutique stores and alluring kiosks all promise better skin, free from breakouts and allergic reactions. Even dermatologists, my own included, sell the popular Jane Iredale line in their offices as a better alternative to more conventional makeup formulas.  All this is well and good, but one thing I’ve learned over the thousands of brides our company has worked with is that: 1) Most women hate the…
