Makeup Applications

A specialist in makeup that reflects the personality and style of her client, Helen Gaye feels that makeup should make the client feel poised and confident, not "made up."

Because of her experience in doing makeup for photographs, she makes every bride look lovely as she walks down the aisle and in the pictures she'll enjoy for the rest of her life. Bridal makeup includes a preview session where she and the bride consult about the bride's vision and look at pictures of the bride's favorite wedding day looks.
