We’re back with our TEAM Spotlight series…Hooray! This round we have the distinct pleasure of featuring TEAM Co-Director, Primary Makeup Artist, and THM Hair Extensions‘ Partner, Nicole I. Beloved by brides and bridal parties for her calming presence, she creates a comfortable and relaxing environment on location. Nicole’s intelligence and stellar professionalism comes through in her beautiful makeup artistry, offering unsurpassed looks time and again. Read on to find out what her favorite on-site wedding location is and what she would tell her 13 year old self…

What do you like best about the age you are now? I love my 30’s. Every year I grow more comfortable in my skin and more settled into all aspects of my crazy my life! I wouldn’t wish to be back in my 20’s. I definitely had a blast but I’m happy to look back at those wild memories and see how far I’ve come!

What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self? Just trust everything will fall into place exactly as it is supposed to! And wear SPF 50 every day because they will turn into sunspots before you know it!!

What is the most exciting thing about your work industry? There are so many exciting aspects of my job; from fashion weeks, to visiting beautiful destinations all over the world, but the most exciting part of my job is meeting so many cool, strong, funny, interesting, independent  women.

 Your favorite on-site wedding location is… San Ysidro Ranch
When you’re not working, what do you love to do the most? When I’m not working I am spending time with my family and having early evening dance parties with my husband, 4 year daughter and 5 month old son!
Go-to song/TV show/movie…Homeland, 60 minutes (because I’m a grandma at heart)
If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, where would it be? Bali- it is my most favorite place in the world so any excuse to go back time and time again I am down!
Thank you, Nicole! Want to see more of her work? Follow her new Instagram!

Gorgeous Hair and Makeup for California Bride Featured on Once Wed

California wedding hair and makeup, featured on Once Wed

Such beauty in these moments captured by For the Love of It on Once Wed.

More from the bride…

For our wedding, Duncan and I knew we wanted a formal but relaxed vibe. We weren’t sure what that looked like when we started planning, but the dress I chose epitomized that feel. It had both a structure and a playful movement to it. Beyond that, we weren’t sure of the details, other than we knew there had to be lots of dancing, and donuts! Thankfully our wedding planner was a rockstar. She would take any idea we had, and bring it to life in a beautiful way.

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

Welcome to round two of our TEAM Spotlight series (see Kita’s here!), showcasing our Primary Stylists who, if you don’t already know them, you’ll love as much as we do! As one of TEAM’s Primary Stylists, Marla is also our Makeup Educator. And for good reason. She knows makeup.

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

What do you like best about the age you are now?
At 25, I like that I am young but old enough that people take me more seriously.

 

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

What advice do you wish you could give your 13 year old self?
Stay true to your passions and interests even when people in your life try to steer you away. Listen to your heart.

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

What is the most exciting thing about your work industry?

TEAM Spotlight / Primary Stylist and Makeup Educator Marla N.

Go-to song/TV show/movie…
I don’t have just one song, show, or movie that is my go-to. I love all forms and kinds. One of my favorite things to do is watch YouTube. Here I can watch all my favorite shows, listen to music, and learn all kinds of new things. Youtube Is my go-to because there is a vast array of content and I can access it on my own time.
If you could work on any wedding anywhere in the world, what would it be?
This is such a hard question because there are so many places in the world I would love to visit. If I were to come up with a top 3 (in no particular order) it would be: France, Japan, England. These are 3 countries I haven’t been to that are on my bucket list.
Thanks, Marla!

2017 Bridal Beauty Looks to Inspire / Style Me Pretty Features Mar

2017 Bridal Beauty Looks to Inspire / Featuring TEAM's Creative Director, Mar, on her tips and tricks for hair and makeup styling - photography by Matthew Ree

It’s Friday, folks! And our very own Mar is heading up today’s Instagram Takeover on Style Me Pretty. She’ll be offering tips and tricks for hair and makeup styling, based on her feature in SMP’s 2017 Bridal Beauty Looks to Inspire (soooo good). Here’s a sneak peek into her tips for smoky eyes + crazy, fun hair…

Consider natural tones when applying “smokey” eyeshadow colors to your eyes. We like less smoke and more lashes – we LOVE fun and flirty false eyelashes! This is the key to this soft, yet dramatic, look. THM Hair Extensions were added in for the tousled “down do”. We waved the hair with a one-inch iron, wrapping wide pieces around the barrel and then allowed the hair to cool before literally tossing her hair up and down! Pin the sides up and you have some sexy waves, which will stay out of your face throughout your wedding. Or use the volume and texture to create an amazing braided updo for later (dancing time?!).

See a whole bunch more over on Style Me Pretty!

Style Me Pretty spotlights TEAM Hair and Makeup in their featured Vendor Guide and Portfolios

We are beyond thrilled to be in the spotlight on Style Me Pretty as their featured hair and makeup artist vendor. Choosing just the right team to help create and enhance your most meaningful life celebrations is huge. We get that. Style Me Pretty gets it, too. Which is why their sparkly new Vendor Guide + Portfolios is a game-changer. We here at TEAM are honored to be a part of the fete.

And could we ask for a more gracious + honeyed testimony from the founder of Style Me Pretty herself? Swoon…

“There are few things that I could say about Mar Romero and her TEAM that haven’t already been said. She is loved. She is respected. She is pure and honest talent. But she’s also so much more. Mar Romero works from her soul. She pushes herself to be better every single day, she questions the norm, knowing that she can always make something or someone more beautiful than they ever hoped. She cultivates her artistry with the kind of thoughtful care that you only get to see in those who are truly doing what they love.” –Abby Larson, Founder of Style Me Pretty

Before & After Of Metropolitan Building Model

By |2011-07-11T12:30:39-06:00July 11th, 2011|Makeup|

A few weeks back we were featured on Style Me Pretty for an amazing NYC shoot we did with Jill La Fleur & Matthew of CLY Creation. I wanted to post a few before and after shots of the model– often times we have amazing before & after shoots of our trials but ususally they are taken with our little point and shoot camera in the studio, but this time we lucked out since Matthew had taken some pro pics of the model before. Truth be told it’s amazing what a little hair and makeup can do!
