makeup artist Los Angeles
Check out our recent bridal makeup trial done by our main Beauty Affair artist Agne Skaringa.
Bride to be Evelyn showed few bridal makeup inspirations and said that she wants more natural look for her big day. Agne gladly explained that to achieve this look in the photo she needs much more makeup then "natural". Evelyn was more then happy with her bridal look.
Here are the steps and products used to achieve this flawless glam look.
To get a perfect and even tone skin make sure that you prepare it well! Agne used Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré all over the face concentrating on most dry areas. Evelyn's perfect foundation match was mixed using Mac Studio Fix foundations in NC 25 and NC 40. Next step was applying our favorite concealer Mac Pro Longwear in color NW 15 around eyes , nostrils and lip corners. For finishing touches Agne added highlighter Becca in Champagne Pop on cheekbones, cupid bow, nose bridge and chin. To give even more definition with Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder. To achieve natural healthy cheek look she applied just a touch of Nars in Torrid.
Agne Swears by Mac eyeshadow primer in Painterly Paint Pot. Here are all the eyeshadows used for this look: Mac Cork (close to lash roots) , Mac Nylon (for highlighting inner eye corner) , Stila Bliss (all over top and bottom eyelid), Mac Grain ( Under eyebrow). Follow with the best mascara for brides L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara. Eyelashes were custom created for Evelyn's eye shape. Lastly Agne applied Mac Liquidlast Eyeliner with Sigma eyeliner brush.

I am so excited and happy to share that my clever client Colette Mullenhof got an award at
I had an honor to do her makeup and updo hairstyle for this exciting celebration in her life. When I finished her look and she saw her self in the mirror I saw tears of happiness in her eyes. Colette said: Wow! Is it really me?!
Colette and her team got an award for creating a IMF Shape Sculpting system to make realistic special effects for big movies such as Pirates of Caribbean.
Check out bellow how I achieved her look.
Makeup and hairstyle by Agne Skaringa for Colette
My talented client was wearing a gorgeous long emerald sequin gown with a boat neck. We decided to do for her an updo, to open her beautiful face.
For makeup I highly recommended to do natural but enhanced look. I thought it would go well with her already glimmering sequin dress.
For eye makeup base I used light and neutral Vanilla color from MAC cosmetics and then popped some gorgeous light coral eyeshadow by Inglot in 312 . After that I applied black waterproof eyeliner from Makeup For Ever Aqua Eyes in Black and set it with a rich brown eyeshadow close to the eyelashes and little bit on the lower lashes roots. For final eye touch I used knot free short black Aredell individual eyelashes to open her eyes and give extra fullness.
Natural blushing cheek look I created using Makeup For Ever Sculpting Blush in 18 Satin Light Peach.
One of my favorite colors by Mac- lip pencil in Fruit cocktail and lipstick in See Shear and highlight with Creme D'Nude.
Look is achieved!
Don't forget to spray with my must have- Model in the Bottle sealer for sensitive skin.
Check out the video! It is so powerful and wonderful to see talented, beautiful and strong women.

Last month we did an engagement photoshoot at Peninsula hotel Beverly Hills. Meet this super fun and lovely couple Hilary and Mat. They just recently got engaged.
Hilary was wearing Gorgeous dress by D.Lindquist in coral guava color. I decided to create a lovely hairstyle swept on a side with a romantic waves.
As you already noticed gorgeous Hilary has piercing green eyes. I enhanced them with MAC copper, brown and gold eyeshadows.
For blush I used Makeup Forever in a coral color. I defined lips with Makeup Forever lip liner and for final touch applied NARS lip laquer in orange color.
I hope you like my created look!
