Summer Time

As I sit here reading my last blog entry I can't believe it's almost August. Here’s a re-cap of our summer activities- In April we had the opportunity to expand our space. We re-opened Studio W May 1 our new address is 918 Smith St. Suite A ground floor across from Aloha Tower.

Our June graduating class has already worked on a photo shoot exciting NEWS..

Our March master makeup student Chantel is busy doing makeup and special effects on Maui. She's working as a key makeup artist for the feature film "Finding Gauguin" We are super proud of her accomplishments!!

As the makeup academy grows, I am happy to be able to provide a space for students to grow, learn, and to be inspired doing what they love.. Check back on Summer Time part deux for more blog news and pictures..

Heather and I are busy getting ready for the bridal expo this weekend at the Blaisdale. We will be talking with brides about their big day and doing makeup and hair- offering special discounts. Please stop by and say hello. Thanks Nathan - I just received your text and will be happy to have your creative energy to help us out this weekend!

Brides: Congrats to all of you beauties.. We wish you all the love, happiness and joy!!

We will be collaborating on a few wedding shoots with Eric & Wendy of L'Amour Photography. Here’s a picture of Wendy taken at the March OWA meeting. We were asked to do the makeup and hair.. It was a lot of fun, always a good time with the OWA peeps :)

I love this look very retro, my favorite.

Here's another picture from our shoot:

This picture will be featured in the new Bridal Expo magazine to promote James Anshutz Photography, Studio W and Masako Formals - who graciously loaned us the dress for the photo shoot. Thanks again to James, Kumi and Pauline.

Wishing everyone a fun filled, beautiful weekend..
