What better way to wake up on a Friday morning than hearing that your work has been featured on the biggest style/inspiration blog?

With the picturesque backdrop of wine country, refreshing colors of green and blue, this sweet DC couple darted across country to say their I dos.

Before & After – My mom

Yes, I just went there.  

My mom in all her before & after glory.  Don’t worry, she wanted it. I swear.



Before & After – Angeline

I’ve gotten so many requests from clients  wanting Angeline’s sexy before & after.  Angeline gave me full reign on makeup & hair.  So…. I went to town creating a sexy but tasteful look.

Soft smokey eyes, extensions and a gorgeous smile.   Lucky hubby.
BTW, there is no retouching…. Her skin is THAT flawless. 

Love & Lipgloss,
<3 Jane



Before & After- Jaime

Jaime requested natural, pink, casual and comfortable.

a different light

People often thank me for making them beautiful or feeling beautiful. I’m not a magician or a plastic surgeon… I don’t change their features. I don’t nip nor tuck. I work with my client’s existing face, my canvas, and I just make them see themselves in a different light.

If they feel beautiful, it’s all them :)


Susan & Alex | Casa Real Winery Wedding

Susan was perhaps one of the most laid back brides I ever had the pleasure of working with.  So calm, poised and collected…my mom probably wishes she had her for a daughter instead of the nut job I am! 

Extra thanks to GH Kim for the beautiful imagery!

Boudoir session | Angeline

Life is unfair.  Sometimes God makes the Snookies of the world or the Lindsey Lohans and then he makes people like Angeline who embodies beauty, brains and sweets all packaged into a perfect size 0 body.  Yes, It’s unfair.

A couple weeks ago, I did an interview for the great new site Beautylish, a sort of MakeupAlley meets  Yelp of the beauty world, members are able to connect with other artists, product junkies, write reviews and scour the neverending list of beauty products.   The interview covered the does and don’ts of a trial session, makeup based on skin type, colors,  communicating with your artist and just some basic tips for your big day.

Spring Shoot

This shoot we did last week was to showcase Azalea Boutique’s spring fashions.  If you don’t know about them,  please make your way over to Hayes Valley for the best contemporary fashion San Francisco has to offer! . 

I must say, that in the short time I’ve been in the makeup & wedding industry, here in the Bay Area, I’ve been received with wide-open, flailing arms.   I’ve had the pleasure of working with some of the creme -de-la-creme of industry professionals and meeting more and more along the way.   But,  none is more dear to me than my favorite Aussie… Angie Silvy.  Yes, she’s a fire-y pistol and a complete riot but her talent and resume speaks for itself… she’s photographed some of the biggesst names in sports, movies and music.   She has a unique style that is soft, luxe, with a bit of vintage flare, and natural but with a bit of an editorial twist.   In laymen terms, she’s good. REALLY good… her pictures speak for them self.

Rustic Shakespearean Wedding | Kristine & Todd

(A happy birthday shout out to The Santaniellos)

Here is a wedding I did back in September for dear friends Kristine & Todd.  And yes, they would be The Santaniellos.
They were wedded at the rustic Shakespeare Garden inside  Golden Gate Park.  Reception followed at Terra Gallery as guest danced and feasted on duck, pumpkin ravioli and took home delectable parisian macaroons… it was a joyous occasion filled fun, tears and laughter.  Kristine, as usual, looked radiant and gorgeous in her natural makeup and Watters gown.  

Happy Birthday to Kristine & Todd!!!
