Favorite Hair Products!!
First post of 2018!!! Woop Woop!! Thanks for your patience while I got over my cold. I seriously was so uninspired and just felt miserable. But I'm ready to get back at it and I have some amazing content to share with you! Like this awesome shoot below. Keely McKay Photo and I put this shoot together about month ago and we are SO happy with how it turned out! We pulled inspiration from pomegranate reds, blues, and lots of greenery. Needless to say, Budget Bouquet NAILED this
New Year's Eve!!
Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!! I know this post was delayed and that was for a couple of reasons. First, I wanted to take some time this past week to just relax and be with family and enjoy that time. And I did and it was awesome. Second, I wanted to share this BOMB.COM photoshoot I put together with some other vendors that is also LIVE today on the Rocky Mountain Bride Blog!!! EEEEeeeeeeek! I am sooooo pumped that this made it on their blog for New
Makeup I Won't Repurchase
As a professional hair and makeup artist, I go through a lot of makeup. I am constantly trying new and different brands, and experimenting with different products to see what will work best for my clients. Sometimes products work, and sometimes they don't. Please read: This post is NOT about bashing makeup products or brands. A lot of these products come from brands I love and use daily. This post is just about products that didn't specifically work for me or my clients. If t
Favorite Drugstore Makeup
Welcome back!!! The holidays are fast, and I mean FAST approaching, but I am happy to say my Christmas shopping is DONE! Boom. Now I can breathe. Anyone else finished? Also, anyone else listening to the Keith Urban song Female on repeat like me? As you can see from the title, we will be talking about drugstore makeup. Contrary to some beliefs, makeup doesn't have to be super expensive to be high performing or to work well or to be long lasting, etc. And I am always looking fo
All Hallows Eve & Undertones
Happy almost Halloween! Here's another costume idea if you're looking for something simple and you have amazing hair like our model does here. Isn't she gorgeous? I put this together last year with a photographer friend and we had a blast doing it!! I think my favorite part is the dark red lipstick that goes with the red on the cloak.

White Riverside Bride
Everything is blooming and the greenery around Bozeman is insane! When Ingrid asked if I wanted to be a part of a shoot in the blooming flowers I was so excited! I also had never worked with our model, Sarah Lingo before, and it was so great to meet her! Because this look was going to be very soft, with lots of natural light and white flowers paired with a delicate, lacy dress, I wanted the look to be soft and elegant. This meant muted makeup shades, and nothing too harsh. I
So I was inspired by a photo this last weekend and I really wanted to put something together that was similar but with my own twist. This hairstyle was fun to create because I wanted to incorporate both florals and some greenery into the style without it taking over the entire style. This was more of a challenge than I thought it was going to be, but it turned out really great. The second challenge of the day was that a huge storm set in right as we were about to start shooti
