Who does my hair? I’m often asked who colors and cuts my hair so I’m giving Lyn Crompton a great big ‘Shout Out’ …and thank you.

Lyn is totally into her profession and loves pleasing her clients. I can be a difficult client because of my high standards. Lyn deserves a compliment and praise for consistently doing a fabulous job with my hair. She’s been a creative cosmetologist since 1993 and often says “making her clients ‘feel good’ about their hair is her top priority.”

Lyn Crompton  presently works in the Monkey Junction area. She’s been my hairstylist and colorist for the last 4 years. She presently works at the Hair Studio. 910.792.0121

Makeup Artist, NC – Wedding & All Occasion Makeup Tips

Spring and Summer Makeup for Wedding’s and All Occasion’s is prettier than ever.  After years of telling women to choose between strong eyes and strong lips, both can be strong.  This actually helps balance out the trends of the black and white power suits, floaty nightgown dresses or white eyelet sheaths.  How wonderful to actually have options, we can ‘flirt with glamour’ this season….which is exactly what us girls love to do.

Brows are strong this year….so don’t over tweeze…. just keep them groomed and arched, add highlighter to the brow bone….. it adds glam to the entire eye area. For us mature girls it gives us an instant eye ‘lift’ …. a makeup trick for younger looking eyes.

While the hottest runway looks involve wearing a fiery orange red lip most of us aren’t even close to looking like Audrey Hepburn or Ava Gardner;  so it’s best to go with a strong matte lipstick in peach or pink. ( lipstick, not lip gloss). The key to great looking lips is a a lipstick that’s satiny, a silky look that’s not too dewy and not too matte — add a light foundation, triple coat those lashes with black mascara or false ‘demi’ lashes … and darling, your … ‘Good To Go!”

‘Coco Chanel’ – 2009 Mascot For Artistry by Sandy

December 31, 2008 at 12:00 pm (Artistry By Sandy, Makeup Artist Bald Head Island, Makeup Artist Wilmington NC, Makeup Artist Wrightsville Beach NC, Makup Artist NC, Photo Retouch, Wedding Makeup Artist Wrightsville Beach NC, Wedding Makeup Artistry, Wilmington NC Makeup Artist)

                                                     Sandy--Coco-005  

After we lost our family pet, a Cocker Spaniel, “Daisy Mae’ over 20 years ago I wasn’t sure I could commit again. For 6 years I’ve entertained the thought of getting another pet. I wanted a breed to fit my lifestyle and personality. The Shih Tzu breed was one I’ve been attracted to and Friday, December 19th, 2008 I found the perfect puppy at  the ‘Puppy Palace’ on Wrightsville Ave.    

‘Coco Chanel’ is now 8 weeks old and our newest addition to ‘Artistry by Sandy.’  Coco’s our 2009 ‘Mascot’ and will help us greet this “new year” with great expectations as we assist you with Bridal and Wedding preparations.

“Makeup Artistry is all about YOU” …which means we make certain your Wedding day is memorable for photography and all the events of the occasion.

Bridal, Wedding, all of your Photography and Portraits can be perfect with ‘Retouch Photo.’  This is a recent favorite “soft focus”  Jim Downing created for me …..

Sandy-012-2

Jim’s creative side,  a cool shade here…

Sandy & Coco Dec 31-08 012

The original photo taken with a Canon Power Shot A540.  Digital seems to makes teeth and skin tone yellow ….or maybe it’s just my camera and lighting.   

“Thanks again Jim”….I always appreciate your work,  it makes me look my best and ‘younger’ too!  (Certainly cheaper and less painful than plastic surgery. )  🙂

I recommend Jim to everyone who desires beautiful portraits. If you want smooth skin, elimination of lines and imperfections, correction on photograph mishap or restoration on old family photographs then  Jim’s your man.

See all of  Jim’s work @  www.jimdowningphotography.com

Makeup Artist NC – Donna’s Make Over – Photography Perfection

Donna-013

The best makeup tip for photography is perfectly matched foundation to your skin tone.  It’s a science to match foundation and individualize it to your ‘unique’ coloring and skin type. It’s necessary to ‘color code’ you in natural light using 3 or 4 shade stripes at the chin line.  Once they dry the shade that disappears without demarcation is the one for you!   Donna has normal skin tone variations, so with a few corrections and concealer in all the right places her skin tone was balanced and flawless …..’camera’ ready for her photography.      

                                            PurplePassionDonna 002

 As your Makeup Artist I want you to be able to recreate the look after our session  and duplicate it on your own.  My goal is to inspire you, …that’s the greatest joy in my work.

Wrightsville Beach, NC – Wedding Photography

  Congratulations   …  Ty and Crystal Dowining    

 Special Weddings take place at Wrightsville Beach, NC and a favorite of many couples is at the beautiful, “Airlie Gardens.”

 Airlie Gardens at Wrightsville Beach has 67 acres of lush formal gardens. These unique Gardens are graced year round by hundreds of different kinds of flowers and shrubs as well as an unimaginable variety of trees. In the midst of the garden, the grandeur of a 462 year old giant Oak tree, it’s magnificent branches elegantly draped in cascades of Spanish Moss…..some reaching to the ground, softly flowing in the slightest breeze……a ’fantasy land’  welcoming visitors to tranquility of days gone by.   Airlie Gardens has quickly become my favorite pick for a garden Wedding or Photography session.
