Mercedes McCoy, Makeup Artist & Facialist | Studio Tour
Spring is finally feeling like it’s here to stay and I don’t know about you but this warm weather and sunshine on my face has me thinking about staying more active, letting my inner beauty shine, and taking proper care of my skin to keep it looking healthy. I thought there no better time than now, with wedding season on its way, to talk about one my favorite local Makeup Artists, Mercedes McCoy, and to take you on a little tour to show you the inside of her gorgeous studio.
If you haven’t already, read Mercedes’ blog post Healthy Skin Leads to Better Makeup to find out her tips and tricks for improving the health of your skin and revamping your skincare routine to ensure you get the most from your makeup application. And, really, who better to turn to for skincare advice than a licensed Aesthetician? I love that Mercedes focuses on the natural beauty of all of her clients, helping us to feel beautiful in our skin every day and not just on the days with special occasions and professionally applied makeup.
If you’re a bride and looking for a Makeup Artist for your big day definitely get in touch with Mercedes! Finding the right team for your wedding day is so important. One of the things I love about Mercedes’ process is that you can schedule a trial (even better if it lines up with your Engagement Photos or a date night). She keeps detailed notes and drawings from your time together about the exact makeup used and application preferences. This helps with sticking to your timeline on your wedding day, and it also leads to better photos. Not only will your makeup be on point, but you’ll likely be less stressed the day of because you know exactly what to expect and you already know you love it. You’ll be more confident and smiling bigger - now that shows up in photos!
