CLEAN NATURAL BEAUTY
Clean natural beauty is makeup that quietly enhances your natural features, but without stealing the spotlight. The range of colors is more natural and soft, and the makeup placement is to highlight vs. alter your facial features. You look like yourself on a really great day.
SOFT ROMANTIC BEAUTY
Soft romantic beauty is just a little more color and shaping with makeup, vs for a clean, natural makeup look. For soft romantic makeup, colors like mauve, rose, and hints neutral shimmers might be used more. Your eyes may be shaped a bit more with eyeliner and lashes, and you may see more rose or berry tones in your lip and cheek colors.
SOFT GLAM BEAUTY
Dramatic beauty is more of everything-- bolder, defined eye shapes, contoured cheekbones, and a very fashion-forward lip color. This is a great opportunity to look for red carpet reference photos so you can best share your comfort level with your artist. Dramatic beauty can include everything from classic glam makeup with a strong cat eye liner and red lip, to a sleek, very modern, neutral overall look with fuller coverage and lots of contouring.
