Jen & Kurt"s wedding

Jen is from Arizona and found A-List Artistry while searching for a Syracuse makeup artist on the Internet. She booked me for her wedding makeup artist and asked for a wedding hair stylist as well. I called in Tiffany Dewald. We never met Jen before her wedding day. She did a great job emailing her ideas and images during the planning stages.
Jen's fair skin and garden style wedding called for lighter fresh looking makeup. The amazing detail on the back of her dress called for a beautiful up-do infused with fresh orchids.

Behind the scenes Makeup Artist at work with local magazine

One of my goals this year was to get my work in local magazine, The Good Life Central New York. I was ecstatic when they agreed to have me be the makeup artist for their Fall Fashion issue. The shots below are from my personal camera. The model is Suzanne Schaub. She is gorgeous and destined to become a familar face to all.

Studio Shoots can be so fun!


had some fun with GENESIS and CHARLENE. All images shot by Kim from http://www.bigpawphoto.com/
You may see that I do a lot of work with Kim. She is a photographer that I respect a lot. I like her style and she is a breeze to work with. She gives hair & makeup artists creative freedom with their craft. I did makeup and hair for this shoot. LOVED using the feather lashes on GENESIS! I also brought the feather accessories. I love texture against the skin. Both girls are a dream to work with!

American Beauties Calendar Update- Claire Spengler

The lovely Claire. Her eyes are sooo stunning! Makeup artist is me, Holly. I also styled hair for this shoot. I loved Claire's enthusiasim. I make it clear that I am not a hair styist and I only do simple styling for shoots. Claire told me "you can't style my a$$!". Guess that means she liked it. This shot doesn't highlight my talent, ha ha. Shot in Syracuse, NY
