FAQs:

Q: How long have you been in the makeup artistry business?
A: Since the summer of 2017.

Q: Why did you choose this career?
A: There is more to that answer in “My Story” on the home page, but in short I discovered it to be a creative and therapeutic outlet for me. It brings me so much joy making my clients happy.

Q: Do you do hair as well?
A: No. I never had the knack for styling my own hair, so I never explored doing others. Plus, I prefer having a single focus on my clients’ wedding day. However, I work with hairstylists at every wedding and am happy to refer them to you.

Q: How do you describe your style?
A: Although I always work with my clients to make sure we are creating a look she is satisfied with, I always aim to enhance the natural beauty that is already within her. Key word there is “enhance.” I never desire to cake on makeup or cover up her natural features.

Q: Do you offer airbrush?
A: I offer both traditional makeup as well as airbrush makeup application, at an additional cost. I can give you more details on that if you inquire.

Q: Do you travel on location?
A: I do! I am an onsite makeup artist and am happy to travel to you for your special event.

Q: Do you offer a bridal trial?
A: Yes, and I actually require one for my brides. It is our chance to get acquainted with one another and is a crucial step toward perfecting your makeup look for your big day.
. . .

Q: Are you married?
A: Yes I am! I married my best friend and hunk of my life on February 24th, 2018. It was a beautiful winter wedding, with “enchanted elegance” as our theme.

Q: How did you meet?
A: We met at my local church. Once graduated from college, Aaron began attending my church. Almost immediately, he spotted me in the crowd. He pursued me; however, I was a bit slower to catch up in my affections. After a few years of gradually getting to know one another as friends, I finally decided I would like to date him. We dated for 7 months, got engaged, and 7 months later we were married. I can now say I am so blessed to love and be loved by this man!

Q: Where did you grow up?
A: Born and raised in Lancaster County. It really is a small world here.

Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I love getting away on mini road trips and exploring new places. I also love thrift shopping, being a plant mom, and relaxing with my hubby watching our favorite TV shows with a bowl of ice cream in hand.

Q: What makes you happy?
A: Here are a few: sleep, the sound of birds chirping, my family (especially my nieces and nephew), my sweet baby girl, and everything Fall! 🙂

Q: What is your favorite food?
A: Do I have to choose just one? I’ve always been a sucker for ice cream (thanks Dad!), but one restaurant item I love is Chicken Tikka Masala from Himalayan Curry and Grill. It’s the best, especially when ordered with a side of Naan bread! For a quicker option, Chipotle is always my go-to.

Q: What is your favorite color?
A: Blue

Q: Where do you like to shop?
A: Goodwill & consignment shops, Old Navy, and Marshalls/TJ Maxx/Home Goods.

Q: What is your favorite quote?
A: As a Christian, the bible influences the way I aspire to live my life. One specific verse that has encouraged my walk with Him is “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3: 5-6
