I'm Stefanie and I've been doing makeup professionally for five years. I travel all over the Bay Area for weddings and I'm based in Concord, Ca. I don't do hair but here are some amazing hair stylist in the area to check out.
My signature makeup look is neutral full glam with glowy skin. What is neutral glam? Neutral glam means the makeup is neutral in colors yet defined with lashes, highlighting and contouring to look elevated, glowing, and flawless. This look translates best in photography more than a natural look would. I apply makeup traditionally with a brush and sponge and don't offer airbrush makeup. I specialize in makeup application suited for photography and will be more than a normal everyday amount of makeup. If that sounds amazing then I'm the makeup artist for you! Event & photoshoot makeup sessions are referral based only.
I'm big on skin care! Gorgeous makeup starts with gorgeous skin. To achieve a glowy flawless makeup application you must be following some kind of skin care routine. Makeup will emphasize any texture you have and can only cover color not texture. Let's have real expectations with what makeup can actually achieve. It will not make fine lines, wrinkles, pimples, or pores disappear. It's used to enhance your natural beauty and will do that! The only true treatment for acne and fine lines is skin care. I'm happy to help if you have any skin concerns. Here are my skin care prep instructions.
I love working with brides! With 5 years of experience working large wedding parties, I will make sure your day goes super smooth. I'll provide a wedding timeline that will keep us on schedule. I'll also make sure you and your bridal party feels pampered and have everyone looking cohesive for your photos. I promise to be there for you every step of the way with wedding planning. I'll effectively communicate with all your amazing vendors. Your wedding will be my top priority and I'll always be available for you to reach me.
My goal is for each bride to leave my chair feeling beautiful and confident. I will listen to you and share all my makeup knowledge. I love that I get to make people look and feel their very best.
When I'm not doing makeup I'm busy being a mom to my six-year-old daughter, Mila, or trying to get a date night in with my husband Erik. Our favorite thing to do as a family is go to the beach! We have a cat named Lilly Kitty who we consider a family member. I love all things beauty, style and fitness.
Makeup is my passion and I feel so grateful that I get to do what I love. I can't wait to meet you!
