JULIANNA


Hello Beauties!

I just realized I never shared this amazing fashion shoot with the beautiful JULIANNA. The final product sure did blow me away, thanks to Sufia Huq Photo. Months of planning and collaboration went into this day. Picking out color palettes, locations, outfits. But most importantly finding the perfect model. Honestly once we started shooting and the lighting, the colors, the style, Julianna, it literally all collided in one moment and my breath was taken away. Also can I just say, this was Julianna’s first shoot modeling and WOW she killed it! There is something super intense about the creative process. An intensity that is filled with hope yet fear. Hope that everything you had in your mind comes fourth and then fear that it may just totally flop! Well this was a creative release that was well worth the pressure!

For this makeup look I wanted Julianna’s skin to shine! Every curve of her face to have definition and glow. My product of choice was, Temptu, silicon base airbrush makeup. I used all airbrush, foundation, blush, highlight, contour and eye shadow. In some of the last photos I added some glitter lips, seriously, SO FUN! I switched up her lip color three times. See if you can spot it. ­čśë I also styled her hair, which those that know me, I do NOT do hair. But for this I wanted a super simple look with all focus on her face. I went with a middle part slicked back low pony tail and it totally completed her look more than I realized once we got on location to shoot, it fit perfect!

The vintage fur coat was actually my nana’s whom my mom now owns and lent us, truly the shoot wouldn’t have been the same without it! Fur coat for the win! I love this shoot because it can be used for spring/summer and fall/winter fashion. The crushed velvet gold dress perfect for spring and so versatile! And can we just talk about the red velvet block heels, all sorts of YES! I wish I bought a pair in my size!

In the middle of shooting we noticed a car that fit perfectly into our color palette and well the guy was kind enough to let us shoot with its awesome paint job, lifted spinners and all. Oh Orlando, I love you. I hope you enjoyed my breakdown of this shoot, now go enjoy some photos… Let me know what you think.

A Beautiful Bride in Pure White.


Hello Beauties!

I am so excited to share this stunning wedding! I was so so honored to do makeup on the beautiful, Shannon and her girls. She found me last minute and boy am I glad I happen to have that day available, especially during this crazy busy wedding season. It was meant to be! I am so excited to say, this is the busiest season to date for Marin Makeup, woo hoo!

For Shannon’s look we went with timeless and romantic. All mainly neutral tones with a pretty pink pout for lips. She is absolutely gorgeous so it really didn’t take much to glam her up just a bit. She chose to do Airbrush foundation and so glad she did because Airbrush for brides is my ABSOLUTE FAV! If your looking to step up your makeup game then you have to try out, Temptu’s new hydra lock airbrush foundation formula, it will seriously change your life!

For her highlight I used an oldie but a goodie in my kit and now that I’m thinking about it I’m almost out and need to get more soon. But any who it’s CARA Cosmetics highlight in Bal Harbour, its the perfect neutral taupe, white highlight with just the right amount of shimmer and no glitter. Tarte also makes a similar shade in their Pro Glow palette which is another go-to in my kit.

For her lips I used a really pretty gel liner in soft pink mauve with a mint baby doll pink gloss on top. For the gloss I tracked down a mint formula at request of the bride and I landed with Aveda’s nourish-mint rehydrating lip glaze in shade “Morning Rose.” Her lips needed a bit of TLC so I did Aveda’s feed my lips pure nourish-mint lip treatment while I worked on her face and once time came around to apply lip color they were soft and ready to go, thanks Aveda! Also just fyi I am not sponsored by any of these brands just sharing whats in my kit and why I love it.

The groom had a bit of a mishap at his bachelor party and had a big scab that was healing right in the middle of his forehead. He requested I stay to help him out and make him look presentable for photos. Boy am I glad I have so much male makeup experience from my days at the Golf Channel. It was a quick fix with a little corrector, concealer and powder and he was good to go! At the very end I posted a photo of him you’ll be able to see not a dang thing, cause y’all, I’m good like that, wink face.

So enough of me talk, talking about this amazing day. Go check out these photos for yourself by amazing photographer Katie Mick Photography.

The stuff dreams are made of….


Hello Everyone! Today I am so excited to share the details of an amazing shoot I was privileged to plan and help style with the amazing Erika Reiner Photography and Model, Wendy Biagioni. It turned out to be one for the memory books! Makeup for me has always been a journey of self expression and learning professional techniques to take my career to the next level and this shoot did ALL that and more! I took on my first under water photo shoot and well, not to brag, killed it!

A lot of makeup artistry is research. Research for the look, the style and the technique. This shoot required a whole new skill set from me, under water, full WATER PROOF makeup! And well as a Beauty Makeup Artist I was ready take on the challenge. It all started with a phone call from a photographer who happened to find me on Instagram ( Can I just say how grateful I am for social media! ) we talked and hit off for almost an hour, wow hello meet cute! Then began the planning to find the perfect products to tackle this challenge.

I’m used to using the amazing and industry standard TEMPTU airbrush makeup. So for this challenge due to some research I decided to give their new formula a try called Temptu Hydra lock Perfecta Base Airbrush Foundation. I have always been a big fan of Temptu Airbrush makeup in the SB ( silicon base) formula but this new stuff from TEMPTU is the bomb! When Wendy came out of the water looking perfect, I got goosebumps and it took everything in me to not say as loud as I could, “YES I DID IT!!!!!!” As a makeup artist I am constantly critiquing myself and wanting to grow. More work comes from more practice and more knowledge and most importantly more experience. Needless to say this shoot did just that and more. Soooooo all that to say this shoot was the stuff dreams are made of and honestly there is WAY more where this came from…. Now go enjoy these amazing photos captured by the amazing Erika Reiner Photography.

Hello, it’s me…


(do you have that song stuck in your head now…. Hello, it’s me you’ve been looking for…)

Hello Beauties!

It’s been a little while and I wanted to share today an amazing shoot I just did, such a treat for me, with the amazing Erika Reiner Photography! The inspiration words I gave her for the shoot were “posh” and “fun” and well she KILLED IT! I have never felt so beautiful and more like me on camera, ever! This season I am embracing this “girl boss” attitude and saying, YES, to all that serves me and my brand! I have been so blessed to be in the busiest season for Marin Makeup makeup to date, woo hoo! Isn’t it amazing what just saying, “YES!” does to your life! I am blown away by how many opportunities I was saying “No” to because I felt unworthy or not good enough or didn’t have time. Well, what a LIE! So just a quick note and word of encouragement follow your heart and let yourself go, you may be just one, YES, away from someone that could change your life forever! Below are a few of my favorites from the shoot, I think through these shots you’ll get to know me a little bit more. Tell me what you think!

Enjoy the rest of your day!

-Ashley Anne Marin,
Your friendly neighborhood Makeup Artist! ­čÖé

Cheeseburger approved lipstick! 💄🍔💋


Hello! Today I wanted to get a little silly and a little practical. I am a total lipstick junkie so I had to share my dirty little secret with you all. My all time favorite lipsticks are from MILANI! I’m a big lover of luxury and professional brand lipsticks like, Tarte, NARS and Marc jacobs I keep in my kit but this drug store lipstick gives them a run for their money for more than half the price! Can’t beat that!

Milani seriously stays all day and the pigments are legit! (No filter what so ever on featured image) Their matte and moisturizing formulas are my favorite also their matte liquid lips are pretty awesome too! I love a good statement lip. It’s all the range this spring season. A fresh face and little color pop on the lips and you’re good to go! For those quick lunch breaks, where all you have time for is to chow down and run back to the office, this is your savior! For those days your working a 12 HR shift and can’t keep a lipstick on you, you have to give this a try!

I’m wearing shade Matte Orchid #64 in Milani Matte Lipstick. Find it at Walmart, CVS and select Walgreens.

I thought it was time to finally share some makeup tips, I hope you enjoyed. Let me know any more tips you’d like me to write about. Woo hoo for embracing the best way to express your inner and outer beauty, makeup accessorizing!

Have a beauty-filled day and cheeseburger on!
