This morning Laura Calamai came in to do a bridal consultation with me at Whip Salon. Because Laura’s mom and Amy have been communicating through email I didn’t know much in advance about Laura. So once I found out that she was a bride I had so many questions for her. I always ask a lot of questions because weddings are very important for any bride and their family. Now that I know everything about her wedding and Laura personal style I was able to give her a successful consultation. When Laura shared with me a picture of her wedding dress, iDie! Her dress is old Hollywood vintage with a twist of bohemian chic. I love the flowers she selected, in the dresses for her bridesmaids are just as FAB, that they will definitely complement her dress. After reviewing everything I now know exactly what Laura want to look like on her wedding day.
The first look I did a softer makeup application and for the second makeup look I bumped up her look by sculpting her face with a few things from Absolute New York. Laura loved the second look that we could not stop taking pics. We had a photo shoot going on, you know I LUVED IT! Laura reached out to Amy and myself around 7:30pm to say that she would like to book us for makeup. So I will be going out on location to do her makeup, her mom and 4 bridesmaids.
I’m so elated about doing Laura makeup on her wedding day. We had a great connection that I can’t wait to be apart of her special day. I’ll take tons of pics so that you can see her in this amazing wedding dress.
Can I just say that today was EVERYTHING! I was so busy with so many different services that I was definitely fulfilled with it all. I wish that I had two more hands to help capture my day today. I luv when I get booked for a variety of services; pretty pouts, sultry eyes, eye brow shaping, glam makeup, lashes, and makeup lessons.
One of my clients today was Rosemarie who came in to do a makeup lesson with me. I actually enjoy my Makeup Lessons & What’s In Your Bag services because I really get to learn my clients. I get to look into their makeup bags to see what makeup goodies they like. Rosemarie and I had such a great time I don’t even know how we finished it on time.
All of the skincare & makeup I used on Rosemarie.
It’s 6pm so let the Holiday Stroll begin, the stroll was from 6pm-8pm. We had a great turn out, Art Meets Makeup Artistry. I met a lot of great people tonight, kids, teens ladies, & men. I wish I had time to capture pics of artist Allison Meyler the other person who was a part of this cool art event with me. #HERESJOHNNY
Here is Allison abstract work that will remain up for viewing at Whip Salon this month…luv
This is my favorite time of year because during the holiday season I love to play with a lot of bold colors and shimmery products. It’s the perfect time to have fun with your makeup. One of my new favorite item this year is Jane Iredale Eye Shere Liquid Eye Shadow.
What I like about these liquid eye shadows is that it’s a fast drying long wearing shadow that will last all day. The texture is very smooth and easy to apply. Once dry the shadows will not crease or smear so you don’t have to worry about touching up the vibrant colors. They come in 4 beautiful shades: Brown Silk, Champagne Silk, Peach Silk & Teal Silk.
So don’t just let your jewelry be the only thing that bling, bring shimmer lids into your holiday look.
I’m always so excited about my After Hours Makeup Class at Whip Salon. Tonight class was called Holiday Glam. I thought this would be perfect because many of you will be attending so many parties this month. Not everyone will be able to come see me so I thought this would be a nice way to help my ladies out.
Johnny did a great job as always greeting the ladies, making sure that everyone is taking great care of. Being an upcoming makeup artists this is such a great event for him to sit in on because he can now learn a lot of tips & tricks.My model tonight was Kassie, she’s such a sweet girl that I have taken under my wings.

This is such a great service for any woman on the go that’s in a rush to get a little glam with me at Whip Salon. If you don’t have a full 45mins to get a beat face a little eye makeup application will definitely complete you.
