Congratulations on your decision to hire a professional makeup artist! Considering the investment you are making in your photography, it only makes sense to have your makeup applied correctly, as it will reflect in every nuance of your photos.

I have been a professional makeup artist since 1999 in all aspects of special occasion makeup: bridal, stage, print, and film. My work has been featured in local and regional magazines and dvds. Training with MAC has instilled a knowledge of color theory, face and eye-shape optimization, and the philosophy of beauty for all ages and races.

I specialize in airbrush makeup applications. This water-consistency makeup is sprayed through a wand that is attached to an air compressor and lightly misted over the face. It is a very popular medium for models and celebrities whose images appear as close-ups in magazines and movies.

There are many advantages to airbrush makeup. . . mainly that the result is the most delicate, flawless finish. It uses only a fraction of the amount of makeup. . . less product but superior coverage! The look of blemishes, sun spots, redness, large pores, and acne can be softened and appear to vanish. Airbrush makeup is applied in half the time of traditional foundation.

Whatever your style. . . sexy smoky eyes, a natural beach beauty, or Old Hollywood glamour. . .my greatest joy comes from helping you look and consequently feel, your best.

I was very pleased with my choice of makeup artist. She responded to every email in a timely fashion and answered any questions I had. She was well worth every penny I paid. I was pleased with the way the makeup looked in person and in pictures. She even knew the type of lighting my photographer used and recommended the right amount of makeup for the best result. I had never had airbrush makeup but very glad I went that direction. My makeup lasted from about 11am until the early hours of the morning and it was July in Charleston!

Pamela is AMAZING! As a bridesmaid in a previous wedding, I had a bad experience with getting my makeup done, so I was particularly nervous about the makeup on my wedding day. With Pamela, I had no reason to be. She was incredible. She took the time to listen to what was important to me, what my skincare routine was & other sensitivities. During my trial & on my wedding day she made me feel so comfortable. Thanks to Pamela, I felt like a better version of myself on my wedding day – and it was fantastic. Pamela is the best, as a makeup artist and as a person!

Pamela Lesch is absolutely incredible. I have had several makeup artists do my make up through the years and NEVER have I looked as great as when Pamela worked with me. My pictures turned out so beautifully! She listened to me and she gave me exactly the look I wanted. She was so knowledgeable and such a pleasure to work with. I am confident that even after my wedding I will make an appointment with her on every trip I make to Charleston! She is FANTASTIC!

When we book a bride, the first thing I do is tell them to immediately book make-up artist extraordinaire, Pamela Lesch. Pam is an artist who creates beautiful brides. Her make-up work is natural, elegant, designed for our warm humid climate and simply beautiful. Just as important as her skill at make-up is Pamela's ability to bring calm to the bridal suite as she efficiently handles even the largest bridal parties without problem or stress. A perfect bride begins with perfect make-up and Pamela is the best available. I highly recommend Pamela Lesch.
