Beauty Always Sees the Best


Hi Beauties!

I wanted to write this for all my fellow beauty sisters working in the beauty industry. We are in middle of the busiest season of the year for our businesses and I wanted you to know, I SEE YOU! I see you busting your butt to work in a service industry that a lot of times has no thanks. I see you working three jobs in a day and then rushing home to make dinner for your kids. I see you hustling to network and make the best connections possible to get your name out there. I see you doing research and taking all the continuing education you possibly can. I SEE YOU!

The beauty industry is filled with immense possibilities and I am so grateful for work! As a makeup artist my skills are what pays the bills but even more than that, those whom I surround myself with are the ones who can get me my next big break. I’m so grateful to have found a tribe of gals who, “GET IT.” They get that professionalism and communication are keys to a successful beauty business. They get that skills can be learned but attitude is who you are. We work face to face with women who struggle with things that we may never have the answer to but for just a few minutes we can offer some light at the end of the tunnel and leave them feeling like the queen they truly are!

In the middle of this busy season, take a minute to reflect on all the people you’ve encountered so far this year. Did you stop and take a min? Ok, now just think, ALL those men and women wouldn’t be the same without YOU. So I want you to know if no one has told you lately, I SEE YOU. Keep showing up and doing your best. Beauty always sees the best. The world is a better place because of YOU!

5 Reasons to Upgrade to Airbrush Makeup for Your Wedding Day.


5 Reasons to Upgrade to Airbrush Makeup for Your Wedding Day:
  1. Texture. It feels like second skin and is perfect for those brides who don’t want to feel they have makeup on. But good news it looks amazing! Makes you camera ready in an instant!
  2. Long wear. It’s water resistant and transfer resistant. The technology in most airbrush makeup formulas makes it so it adheres like skin to the face. When used with proper primers, moisturizers and setting powder it truly it’s unstoppable! So much so I put Temptu’s perfect canvas hydra lock formula to the test at a recent shoot where the model went underwater. And not just a dip like full on swimming! Her face stayed perfect! I’d say you want that in your wedding day!
  3. HD camera approved. I briefly mentioned this is number 1 but I’ll go into more detail. Using an HD makeup formula is so important in today’s use of HD camera and video. You want a smooth finishing and every pore covered for that big day and airbrush makeup is your solution! The way in which the foundation is blown through the gun creates a finishing that looks perfect on camera!
  4. Skill. Airbrush makeup application takes a certain level of skill. When hiring a professional makeup artist, make sure they have a wide range of skills. Learning and mastering airbrush application is such a great skill to have and brings more options to the table for your best day ever!!!! Most makeup artist that offer this service have a few years under their belt and you can trust them with all your makeup need so the day of your wedding.
  5. Investment. Those makeup artist’s who spend money on a good airbrush system see the value in giving you the best of the best! A good airbrush system can cost in upwards of $500. We truly want you to have the best for your best day ever! Investing in our makeup kit is investing in you! An artist who carries good quality products is the artist you want to hire. Professional products require professional skills.
Airbrush makeup may be a bit more expensive than your average makeup application but let me tell you its worth every penny. I will say there is only one downfall to airbrush and depending on the formula it is not well suited for some mature skin types. I will say though the new Temptu Hydra Lock formula is perfect for mature skin and all the above. It’s my new secret weapon! So for all my fellow artists reading this, the sky is the limit with the Hydra Lock Formula!
I hope this helps in your makeup decision for your big day! Much luck to you!
Ps. In no way am I sponsored by Temptu or any airbrush makeup company. I truly believe in these products and spend my hard earned makeup money on them. I know I can trust them to perform to the quality I want them to and trust them to make my client look their absolute best!

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.
