Styled Bride: Brittney | Duluth, MN Bridal Makeup

Here are some images from a photo shoot I collaborated on with local vendors Mad Chicken Studio and Saffron and Grey.  I was definitely going for an elevated bridal look, very chic and polished (which is definitely my style) but with an editorial edge using some dark eyeliner and stronger contour.  Shooting took place in Cloquet, Minnesota.  Enjoy.

Styled Nautical Shoot: Rachel | Duluth, MN Makeup Artist

Here are a few shots from a shoot I did with Mad Chicken Studio and Vain Salon last year.  I was going for a 40’s concept style with a sexy modern nautical influence.  Whether or not that was projected clearly this was a really casual fun shoot and with a model like Rachel it was impossible for it not to turn out beautifully.  Shooting took place along Park Point in Duluth, Minnesota.
