When Jodi of J. Anne Photography shoots you a text asking about hair and makeup for an Easter-inspired styled shoot with Layers of Lovely and a bunny… you respond as fast as your fingers will text with a resounding YES, forcing as much enthusiasm as electronic conversations can be into those three simple letters. YES, Jodi, I would LOVE to work with you, followed by an over zealous amount of emojis. Mostly the ones with the hearts for eyes but…

Love is Beautiful

Oh the choices, the choices! The ring is on, the feverish calls and excited “Congratulations” are rolling in! That dreamy fantasy that was once reserved for your mother’s closet and vanity has now come alive with websites, stores, and bridal shows as you piece together the look of a lifetime. For some women, it’s all about the deep desire to be “The Bride,” the replica of the holiday-edition Barbie’s from childhood complete with dazzling jewelry and lush fabric. For other…


Blade-Runner Inspired Photoshoot

Posted in Halloween!, Shows & Stills by Amelia on February 20, 2013

It feels good to flex some creative muscle once in a while. After doing hair and makeup at Las Vegas CES with sci-fi hottie geek Alison Haislip, I was feeling inspired to do some funky hair and makeup. The result was this super fun, futuristic shoot inspired by Blade Runner! Izzy was the perfect model, with her exotic look and up-for-anything personality. She was such a trooper, working it outside in the dead of winter at night. We were aiming…


The Many Faces of Erin Leigh

Posted in Shows & Stills, Who We Heart by Amelia on January 13, 2013No comments yet

Erin is everything that is artistic in a beatnik bohemian chic way. A tablescape artist, interior designer, fashionista extraordinaire  and my friend. Her mug has graced the pages of many local luxury ads and her modeling career fit in nicely with the fabulous life she built around all things pretty. When she called me to work with her on new head-shots  I think something totally rad came out of my mouth like “Rock On!” I also asked her if she’d be down…

Posted in Pro Tips by Amelia on January 1, 2013No comments yet

I love New Years. January First is one of my favorite days- waking up to a fresh, sparkling year and all the possibilities. It excites me in a way that having tickets to a killer show would. Just can’t wait to see it, and know how good it’s going to be! This is also that time of the year when we take stock and decide what to covet and what to ditch, and that includes your beauty routine. You already know it’s…


These are a few of my favorite things! 2012

Posted in Pro Tips by Amelia on December 9, 2012No comments yet

Walking into a Sephora or Ulta is enough to send any makeup junkie into overdrive- the colors, the sights, the smells! I could spend an hour at the Too Faced wall alone! Then there’s all the new product I haven’t seen, and heaven forbid I make it to the body care section- I absolutely must test out every. single. lotion. I smell like a spa when I leave the place! Alas, we can’t just pick up the whole store and…


A little Too merry… How to save face

Posted in Beauty 911, Pro Tips by Amelia on December 7, 2012No comments yet

It happened last night. One minute I was fine, having a wonderful time at a new hipster bar downtown celebrating a friends birthday, the next moment the floor was very anxious to meet me. I should have known our sweet waitress was the devil when she suggested the specialty cocktail after I ordered my simple gin and tonic. I should have known! Instead, I thought “Sure, I can have a slightly sweeter drink, no problem” and it all went downhill…


Amelia C & Co 2013 – Las Vegas Hair and Makeup

Posted in Shows & Stills, the 'Co, Who We Heart by Amelia on December 5, 2012No comments yet

Like most families, the Las Vegas hair and makeup team of Amelia C & Co loves to do photo’s at the end of the holidays! So of course we called up our buddy Ron Miller and asked him to snap some snazzy shots for us. How the man did it, I’ll never know- have YOU ever tried to wrangle six hair and makeup artists? I imagine it’s something like herding cats. As usual, he killed it! Thanks Ron, we love you!! From…


tara + gabriel

Posted in Weddings, Who We Heart by Amelia on November 30, 2012

Most of us spend more time with our colleagues than with our friends and family, and the wedding industry is no exception. So, when a wedding pro herself is getting married, it’s such a highlight in our year! We just couldn’t be more excited to see what Scheme Events planner Tara Cox was going to do for her own wedding! Of course, with her partners in crime Rissa and Traci on the job, everything was smooth as could be so…


Waxing vs Threading- which is better?

Posted in Pro Tips by Amelia on November 28, 201232 comments

The war against facial hair wages on! And now all the buzz is about threading. The big question then looms: what’s better? Should one pour hot wax on their face and have it heinously ripped off, or should we use a razor-taut thread scraped against our delicate skin for best results? Well- if you ask me, that depends on your pain tolerance! Here’s the professional breakdown on waxing vs threading. Facial Waxing: When you wax, a hard OR soft wax is applied…
