WEDDING MAKEUP PHILOSOPHY
I understand that it's about striking that balance between making you feel like yourself, bringing out your best features, and producing a look that gleams for the cameras. With over a decade of experience working with brides and their bridal parties, and even touching up some grooms, I have learned how to do just that.
I have practiced makeup artistry in New York City and Washington, DC since 2003. During that time, I earned top honors as a wedding makeup artist and gained a variety of experience in various types of makeup application. In 2015, I relocated to Charlotte, NC with my husband and two children.
I not only bring a wealth of experience, and customer service is my top priority. I served as a regional artist for top cosmetic companies including NARS, Laura Mercier and Estee Lauder. I also earned a license in makeup artistry in the state of Maryland after attending the Von Lee Academy and later studied the art of makeup at the prestigious Make Up Designory (MUD) in NYC where I studied fashion, beauty, and special effects makeup artistry.
Additionally, I work on photo and video shoots. And. I have worked as a freelance makeup artist for national news stations.
I serve the Charlotte, NC area and surrounding regions.

Perfect Hair and Make Up, Friendly Service
Julie did my hair and makeup recently as mother of the bride. I put myself in her hands and she did a brilliant job, making me look better than I ever have before. I have never used false eyelashes before and loved the way she applied tiny sections at a time, rather than one big lash. She made sure I was comfortable with what she was doing and I could not have been happier with the results. She found a nice balance of making my eyes pop, while keeping the overall look natural. I would highly recommend her!Sent on 07/18/2019

Julie was amazing! I was wanting someone to help us all get ready but totally overwhelmed by options and lucky enough to have found Julie. She is a total professional, very talented and all around lovely person to be around! I typically don't wear lots of makeup and thought I knew what I wanted for our trial, and while she did it perfectly, it was not for me! She was so nice to me about it, completely understood, and helped me figure out what I DID want! The final look was perfect and I loved it! She did the same stellar job for all the family on my big day. She catered to everyone's special requests and completely made us feel pampered. We are so thankful to her for making everyone look their best and feel amazing. If you are considering someone for hair and makeup - book her now :)Sent on 11/17/2017

Julie is so kind and easy to work with.Sent on 10/05/2017
I was in a crunch to find a makeup artist for my wedding day, Julie fit me in for a last minute trial and was very understanding.
She created three beautiful looks for my mom, sister and I for my wedding day. All three looks were tailored to the individual and Julie made sure we were all comfortable and felt like ourselves.
Such an easy and smooth process from start to finish!
I photographed Julie's wedding years ago and she looked stunning!! She did her own makeup on the wedding day (obviously) and I am so happy that her business will help other brides look fabulous! Looking forward to working with you more in the future!
I had the pleasure of meeting Julie back in 2007. My first impression was that she has a pleasant and a calming presence. She worked patiently with the bride and bridesmaids and finished in a timely fashion. I really enjoyed taking photos of her applying makeup because you can see by her expressions she really loves what she does and is very attentive to the details. It has been great continuing to work together!
