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!

 

Your friendly neighborhood Makeup Artist,

Ashley Marin

Salena’s Sydonie Wedding


Hello Beauties!

 

The 2018 Spring/Summer wedding season has officially wrapped and WOW I had some pretty incredible weddings. I wanted to share a favorite of mine, beautiful Salena’s wedding at Sydonie Mansion. Bridal season has it’s joys and watching a bride prepare to see her forever love for that first look down the aisle is my absolute favorite!

Salena had such a peace about her despite all the craziness that can happen on a wedding day. She kept her eye the prize and looked stunning while doing so. Selena had a career as a News reporter so her poise is top notch! Her style choice was also incredible. She choose a stunning Martina Liana gown from The Collection Bridal that literally fit her PERFECT!

She was sporting a beautiful tan, so I went with a glowing bronze look on her. I started with her eyes and did a bronze smokey eye with super fluffy lashes. She has beautiful brown eyes so it really made her eyes pop! Then I did some Temptu Airbrush makeup that gave her  that glow from within look. I added a little more glow on the high points of her face, a little color on the cheeks and defined her brows. I finished with the lips, I choose a glossy color to bring out her natural lip color. Her look was fresh, glowing and effortless.

I’m so excited for you to see these stunning photos by the amazing Hannah Glogower. The incredible Sydonie Mansion was such a magical venue. It was my first time there. It’s tucked away in Mount Dora, FL and it sure is a hidden gem! You’ll see in the following photos all the beauty! The hairstylist, the amazing Sarah Vaughn and I knocked out 16 services! Woo hoo! It was a busy and amazing day. I was honored and so delighted to be apart of Selena’s day and I wish her and her new hubby all the best!

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!

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! 🙂
