A bride wants to be approachable, huggable and photogenic.
Linda has a very broadly based understanding of cosmetics and uses BC color. Makeup colors and application techniques must be selected with the knowledge of how it will appear in photographs.
BC color is a dermatological grade of skin-smoothing minerals and pure pigments. No animal testing. Products contain no parabens, alcohol, talc, fillers or fragrance.
Foundations feel weightless, have natural-looking coverage that lasts all day, contains a broad spectrum sun protection which is important in sunny Lake Tahoe.
Shadows, blushes, bronzers, lip colors & glosses are all fade resistant and compliment the bride’s natural coloring to make her picture perfect throughout her wedding day.
Linda will also apply a Bride's favorite makeup product if it is a professional cosmetic.
All of the makeup artists on our team use BC color products and we design the same perfection for every face we do!
