We are a team of makeup artists that provide luxury services in our studio in Virginia Beach as well as on location for brides. We serve the local community as well as travel within and out of state for weddings.
After moving from a small town in Mississippi, I became a bridal consultant and loved every second of helping my brides’ dreams come to life. I decided I wanted to become even more involved in the process by putting the finishing touches on my brides! I am passionate about helping women bring their inner beauty to the outside and having fun while doing so. Outside of being an artist, I love going to see live music with my husband, traveling around the world, and binging some TV with my pup, Lucy!
I started my makeup journey while getting my Master Esthetics license while living in Virginia. I have since moved back to Kansas City bringing BlushTones with me to pursue my makeup and skincare career! Creating a relaxing and fun environment for each client is an essential part of my process, and I hope to turn your skincare and makeup dreams into a reality!
I have a lifelong passion for makeup artistry and really, all things beauty! I have had the honor of working with hundreds of brides and clients while with BlushTones, and I couldn’t imagine it any other way! My goal is for each and every person to leave my chair feeling glamorous and confident! When I’m not creating beautiful makeup looks, you can find me jet-setting across the world!
Unsure of what I wanted to do after graduating college, I took a chance and applied to a high end cosmetic line as a counter manager and learned so much about makeup and the industry as a whole. I later decided to further my career with BlushTones, and the rest is history! I love stretching my creative wings with upscale, editorial styles and bringing some of those techniques to create beautiful looks for my brides!
I was born and raised right here in Virginia Beach. I am an ODU graduate and a future esthetician in the making! I took a makeup course from BlushTones, and knew I was meant to continue my career in the industry- specifically with BlushTones. My favorite part of doing makeup is having the ability to enhance others’ features and make them feel as confident as makeup has made me feel!
I started my makeup career in 2018, but the passion stems from childhood and the many “makeovers” I performed on anyone who would sit still! Now I’m lucky enough to have brides and clients who come specifically to me to glam them up! When I’m not doing makeup, I’m flexing my Esthetician muscle, spending quality time with my sweet husband and our three cats, or enjoying a quiet moment at my favorite coffee shop!
I was born right here in Norfolk, VA, but I was raised in Jacksonville, FL! I started my love of makeup through visual arts and then eventually made my way into cosmetic retail. I decided to take the next step and join the BlushTones team to further my career! I love going out in nature or listening to some throwback jams! I can’t wait to get you in my chair to elevate your look!
I have always been an avid makeup lover, but after my own wedding I got curious about a career in artistry! Leah was actually my makeup artist on my wedding day! There’s no better feeling that handing my clients the mirror and seeing their face light up! I love the energy on wedding mornings and getting to connect with so many different types of people! In my free time I love spending time with my husband, new baby girl, and my pups!
I grew up in the country of Illinois, but moved to Virginia 14 years ago with my hubby. I was always the girl doing everyones’ prom and homecoming makeup! I started as a freelance artist with BlushTones, and eventually knew I needed to be an official part of the talented team! I am adventurous and love to travel whenever I can with my husband and 2 children!
Growing up I was that little girl that consistently got in trouble for playing in my mother’s makeup bag. I knew at an early age I would have a career involving beauty and helping women feel just as good as they look! I’m passionate about uplifting my clients not only by showing them how beautiful they are, but also in spirit. We are all meant for more!
After graduating nursing school and being unsure of the career path I chose, I got my makeup done professionally by Leah, and it was the confidence boost I didn’t know I needed! I worked for a high end cosmetics brand to gain more knowledge, and then decided to join the BlushTones team to help others feel like I felt! I also enjoy spending time with my husband and beautiful baby girl!
Leah and the whole BlushTones team are the absolute BEST OF THE BEST. They made me and all my girls feel like absolute queens all day long. Their vibe is awesome, and they make the environment so comfortable. The majority of my bridal party is in the beauty industry, and we were all BLOWN away by BlushTones and sister company FLAWLESS professionalism and skill. RUN don’t walk!
Could not recommend Leah more. She exceeded all my expectations, I will be using her for any and all events in the future! If you are looking for someone to make all your wedding makeup dreams come true, look no further!!
The FIRST thing I did after getting engaged - before engagement photos, finding a wedding planner, and everything else - was book BlushTones for my wedding and engagement shoot. I absolutely loved my makeup and I’m so glad I went with them, all of their artists are phenomenal and professional. They will completely customize your makeup for the look you’re going for and can do any style. The morning of your wedding you’ll be full of nervous butterflies, put your mind at ease by booking these ladies. They will have you laughing and forgetting all about your nerves, not to mention looking gorgeous for your special day!
BlushTones is truly THE BEST - I have had my makeup done professionally in the past, but Leah and her team far exceeded what me or my bridesmaids could have imagined!!! Leah made note of all my requests and made me feel so confident on my wedding day! The makeup stayed on perfectly the entire evening, even through the humidity and all the dancing! All 8 of my bridesmaids (with a wide range in skin tones) agreed it was the best makeup experience they’ve ever had. You will not be disappointed if you go with this vendor!!!!
I truly cannot recommend BlushTones for your bridal and bridal party makeup services enough! Holly and Leah made each and every one of my 7 bridesmaids, mother of the groom, and mother of the bride look absolutely stunning. Everyone's makeup was unique to their taste, while also achieving a cohesive look and feel. Many bridesmaids commented that this is the best wedding makeup they have ever had - and I think guests agreed!
There is not enough space to express how grateful I am for BlushTones!! Leah did my makeup for my wedding and I was in awe of her work. I’ve never felt more beautiful. She is so personable and lovely to be around and she really makes you feel so comfortable, as if you’ve been friends for years. Leah’s talent is unmatched. I couldn’t recommend them enough. Everyone on their team is truly incredible. If you need your makeup done, look no further.
