Redheads are some of my favorite skin tones to do makeup on. I find that you can really make a color palette POP! However often I find that they are reserved in color choices. I find this may be true because, like most women, they have had too may bad encounters at the counters. The first thing I ask my redheads is “Do you like your freckles?”.  If the answer is yes then it is a match made in heaven. If they don’t I find that I can struggle just a little because I believe makeup should allow you to shine, freckles and all. Otherwise you won’t look like you.

The other week we had these two lovely redheaded ladies come into the shop. Wendy and myself had the please of doing their makeup for their latest visit to Asheville, Nc. If you are a redhead out their check out their website And Check it they are getting some buzz. Congrats girls!!

First in Forestry

My favorite thing about being a commercial makeup artist is the locations that I get to go on. Luckily I live here in Asheville, North Carolina that has a rich history and an even richer scenery.   If you ever have heard of Asheville I am sure you have heard of the grand Biltmore house. Through working with Bonesteel films I have been apart of some amazing commercials and documentaries, both about the house and the family and the effects they have had on the surrounding areas. I grew up here in WNC and it seems that I learn more and more about our mountains every day. So this is what I have been up to for the past few weeks.

“The Forest History Society, in collaboration with the Cradle of Forestry Interpretive Association, is producing and distributing First in Forestry: Carl Schenck and the Biltmore Forest School. It will be the first documentary film to examine the pivotal role that the Biltmore Estate’s chief forester Carl Schenck and America’s first school of forestry played in American conservation history.”  –
