When you wish upon a star

Makes no difference who you are 

Any thing you heart desires will come to you 

     We ask just about every one of our clients for their love story and photos from their wedding, and while each and every one of them is so beautiful and touching in their own way, some times we see something really special.
4.4-3
    Every detail of Willavy and Ry’s wedding was beautiful and elegant with a touch magic sprinkled through out the event. But what really got the water works and happy tears going over at the Makeup In The 702 Studio was the super sweet engagement Ry planned- truly something right out of the story books!!
    Willavy and Ry were spending a weekend at Disney World on July 23, 2013- one of their absolute favorite places. At the end of the evening, during the Fantasmic show, ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ started playing across the park as Disney movies were projected on Cinderella’s castle.
    Ry was holding Willavy close when he whispered in her ear, “What do you wish for?” Willavy couldn’t help but start crying because it was such an absolutely beautiful moment. The moon was so bright in the sky, there were fireworks bursting above them as Ry pulled out the most perfect ring from his pocket and asked Willavy to make him the happiest man on earth and marry him.
4.4.7
With a magical proposal like that, how could the answer be any thing but “YES!!!!!!”

5 Star Service 

It’s a term we hear almost every day.  Airlines say they’ve got it.  You hear about it at the spa. I even saw a mobile-auto-detail van saying they had it, but what we are talking about to day is the guarantee of 5 Star Service that Makeup In The 702 provides to every single one of our clients every single day.

“Megan and her crew did an amazing job for our wedding hair and makeup last spring! She was responsive and accommodating . She even squeezed in several extra people that were not planning on getting there make up done.”

We ask the right questions to get the right information.

It can be as simple as asking our clients “What look are you going for that day?” or “Do you  have any allergies?” Other times your beauty team may need to do a bit more digging to find out what direction you want go in for your wedding hair and makeup. “Do you normally wear your hair up and pulled back?” “What celebrity do you think you look most like?”

By having open and honest conversations with our clients, where there are no wrong answers, it helps us find the right look for every one who sits in our chair to feel their most confident and beautiful on such a special day.

We genuinely share in the joy and excitement of our clients special moments.

It is no secret that every one in the Makeup In The 702 family LOVES weddings and brides. In a glitzy and glamorous city like Las Vegas there are countless opportunities for hair stylists and makeup artists to practice their craft. But being there to share in the joy and love that is present before a wedding is absolutely awe inspiring and keeps us coming back for more.

We anticipate and accommodate.

Weddings are wonderful, but boy-oh-boy can they be hectic. Our team arrives promptly, sets up our product and tools and gets the creative show started. Each of our artists and stylists has a kit fully stocked with an array of products to make sure every skin tone and completion as well as hair texture and length can be taken care of. Our ultimate goal for your wedding day hair and makeup to be sure you look and feel like you on your most beautiful day.

Sometimes your grandmother needs help deciding on a hair style that makes her feel elegant AND fun. Maybe your niece who’s set to be your flower girl, is having a total melt down because you nixed the unicorn pigtails (trust us- it’s happened). These are the things that our team deals with every day and the things that we thrive on!! We are looking forward to being part of such special moments.

 ” These were the most amazing ladies. They were highly recommended to me and gave me the best experience. These ladies came to my room on my special days and worked so well together that it didn’t even feel like I was getting my makeup and hair done at the same time. They did exactly what I asked them to do and didn’t miss a detail. Words can’t even express how beautiful I felt and how happy I was when they were done. If you are wanting to find the best ladies for your special day, these are the ladies you should pick. I couldn’t have been happier! “

A Real Love Story- Christal and Fields Copy

3-3-love-story-2

As every one knows, the Makeup In The 702 LOVES weddings and brides. We get weepy at romantic comedies and some times loose it over love stories. When getting to know the lovely Miss Christal as she planned her hair and makeup look for her wedding, she told us that she and Fields love story involved a chance meeting, long-distance, and a surprise proposal……we were hooked!!! We are so grateful she asked us to be there on her wedding day as she and Fields celebrated their love and even more so that she shared her story with us.

” Fields and Christal met on September 24, 2011 in Las Vegas Nevada at a night club at the Encore hotel called XS. Christal and her family were in Las Vegas for an end of the year bowling league while Fields, along with a bunch of his friends, came to Las Vegas to attend a wedding that never ended up happening. Christal and one of her cousins spotted two good-looking men near the bar and decided to approach them in conversation. Christal and Fields hit it off and had a great time at the night club and decided to exchange phone numbers. After only a couple hours spent at the club, their goodbyes were said. Shortly after, a 4 month friendship via cellphone, emails, and phone calls began to brew. After 4 months of realizing that this “friendship” could potentially be something more special than that, Fields asked Christal if she would be in town for his friend’s police academy graduation back in Las Vegas. Christal, without hesitation, said that she would be able to make it. They met up again in January 2012 and on their second encounter with each other shared that they actually “fell in love” with one another. From there, their story of a wonderful fairytale began.
3-3-love-story-3

Fields and Christal started their long distance relationship between Nebraska and California for 1 year and 7 months. In April 2013, Fields was promoted as a Regional Sales Director for GNC and had to transfer to Oklahoma City where the relationship between the two continued. For a total of 3 ½ years, Fields and Christal pursued such a fun-loving relationship together. On December 12, 2014, Fields visited California to spend time with Christal and the two went to the mall because Fields wanted to buy Christal a dress that “so happened” to match Fields’ suit as a birthday present. He decided that he wanted to take Christal to dinner for her “birthday” at the same spot the two enjoyed months before at Orange Hill Restaurant. Towards the end of dinner, Fields stated that he needed to use “the restroom.” Minutes after, Christal’s immediate family and friend started pouring in as Christal was on her cellphone at the dinner table and they started singing “Happy Birthday to you.” Christal was surprised and stunned to see her family and started becoming emotional. Following her immediate family were two of Fields’ friends, one from Arizona and the other from Las Vegas. Then Fields’ parents who he flew in from Nebraska followed behind and Christal started crying even more.

 

3-3-love-story-1

Last person to trail the bunch was Fields with a dozen red roses and a smile that Christal would never forget. Fields handed Christal the flowers, while the crowd was rooting the couple on, he dropped to his knee, stared at Christal’s eyes, and before the big question was popped, Christal yells out with excitement,

“Of course!”

 

Keep an eye on up coming blogs to see some of the lovely pictures from Christal and Fields special day and other recent weddings and photo shoots.

“You’re Absolutley Glowing!!”

Hair & Makeup by: Makeup In The 702 Photo by: M Place Production

 

It’s a statement that we hear almost every single day while working with our beautiful Las Vegas bridal clients to help them prep and primp for their big day.

     While the excitement of such a special day and compete joy of getting to marry your love most certainly add to that “wedding day glow” there are a few products on the market that we know for a fact will help achieve that look not only at the wedding but every day.
    Getting that fresh, healthy, natural “glow” is something that is being discussed all over social media and beauty blogs and websites like Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair– so of course we wanted to weigh in on how it can be applied to your wedding day makeup look
 0607845021032
In addition to giving the wearer an irresistible “Just-Got-Home-From-The-Tropics” glow, this lushious elixir offers a few other great benefits- the coconut oil and ylang-ylang give the skin a super dose of hydration and nurishment and the Polynesian vinilla and tire blossom provide a sent that is guaranteed to transport you right back to the beach
Vital-C-Group-D
When it comes to acquiring that oh-so-coveted glow thats being shown in magazines and on runways are often pointed towards shimmering cosmetics and products that have a bit of sparkle in them. This recommendation is for a product line that works on your “glow” beneath the shimmer and sparkle. VITAL C is absolutely packed with antioxidants and natural botanic ingredients that will repair, sooth and nourish your skin, giving you the best possible canvas to shine on your wedding day!!
This powder is one of our hands down favorites when it comes to creating a natural healthy look. The ultra fine mother-of-pearl particles is versatile enough to provide a touch of glowing glamor and lovely glow to fair skinned beauties and dark skinned lovelies alike.
MAC Cheeks
The description on the MAC site is “Soft coral with golden shimmer”- how fantastic is that?! The coral pigment is perfect for adding a fresh rosy glow to the cheeks and just like MAC products in general, you can be confident that it is made with high quality ingredients and will last through out the day.

Everything You Wanted to Know About Airbrushing

February 14, 2017

Comments Closed
Blog- Air brush 4

Airbrush makeup.

In the past decade the phrase “Airbrush”has been misused as many times as “All Natural” at the grocery store. I’ve seen everything from infomercials with celebrities to aerosol cans filled with “airbrush” foundation.  I can only speak about the tools, training and products we use at Makeup in the 702 but with more than 15 years experience in the industry-here is what you need to know.

Airbrushing refers to not only to the application of foundation, but the physical
formulation of the foundation as well. To help get a better understanding of what your getting or in some instances paying for, ask your artist what type of compressor they use and if they use actual airbrush foundation.

Blog- Air brush 5
The ONLY airbrush compressor that gives the PSI an artist needs to achieve an even and non-streak coverage is Iwata. Dinar and infomercial devises don’t have the airflow needed for smooth, even coverage. They’re also not made for commercial use so are likely to break and stop working when the motor gets hot from extended daily use. Certainly not what you want on your wedding day!! Foundations also need to be made specifically for an airbrush compressor. All to often I see inexperienced makeup artists use a traditional foundation and “base it down” with water or some other fluid in an attempt to make it thin enough to pump through the compressor. First, when liquid is added to foundation it’s chemical composition is changed. This causes the inexperienced artist to use several “layers” to get the end result look needed for photos. Hence what should be weightless has now become the feeling of a pancake on a clients skin. Even coverage is gone and any texture on the skin becomes exaggerated and glaring.

For an artist the tools and training to perform quality airbrushing services for a client are an on going cost. In fact, very expensive cost. However, at Makeup in the 702 we will stop at nothing to provide quality, long lasting end result looks. For the client the end result of airbrushed skin is priceless.

Benefits of Airbrush:

  • Custom blend your color on the spot
  • Coverage for face, neck, check, arms and back (1/2 body)
  • 15 hour coverage
  • Non transferable
  • Withstands the heat of the Las Vegas desert
Blog-Air brush 2

Custom wedding airbrush makeup

What airbrush can’t do is change the texture of your skin. No makeup can do that and an artist should not make such promises. Take a look at the wall next to you, do you see the texture? I can paint that wall blue, black, purple or green and the texture will still come through. If I want to change the texture of the wall I need to sand it or change it prior to painting.   Consumers and artists alike have been sold by the cosmetic industry that a primer will change the texture of the skin. That is in fact not true. The only way to change the texture of the skin is with skincare and injectables, and even at that, the change in texture is only temporary. Some primers can help traditional foundations hold longer but in my opinion they really are just another layer and should not be used in conjunction with airbrush.

A Real Love Story- Cassidy and Cody

February 10, 2017

2.11 Blog 1

Cody and Cassidy met through a mutual friend in high school in Westfield, MA. At the time, Cody was a sophomore, and Cassidy was a new freshman. They hung out with the same friends, and had gym class together, but had never formally met. A mutual friend offered to introduce the two one morning, and they started talking almost immediately. A few months later on January 31, 2009, the two agreed to make it official at a friend’s birthday party and they have been together ever since.

Since getting together eight years ago, Cody and Cassidy have grown together. They attended prom twice and were present for each others’ high school and college graduations.

They moved across the country together to start their adult lives in Las Vegas, NV in 2011, and eventually set their own roots in their first apartment in Henderson, NV in 2014. The two began raising a chihuahua puppy named Kahlua together in 2012, who is now 5 years old. They have grown up and found their paths in life together, Cody pursuing a career in Entertainment Engineering, and Cassidy pursuing one in Social Work. To them, this is just the beginning, however.

How he asked- 

1.22 blog 2
On Monday, September 15, 2014, Cody asked Cassidy to go on a date with him after class. They went out to find a nice dress for her 21st birthday, and had dinner at Naked Grill Sushi. Cody turned into Red Rock National Park on what was supposed to be the drive home, and explained that he wanted to take the scenic route home.
He brought Cassidy up to the lookout point where he instructed for her to look through the binoculars at the Las Vegas strip, which was lighting up between the mountains as the sun set. Cassidy heard a snapping noise, and turned around to see what it was, and found Cody on one knee, saying, “Cass, marry me.” She said yes, and the two talked and spent some time watching the sun set before returning home.

Cody and Cassidy got married on their 8 year dating anniversary, on Tuesday, January 31, 2017. Though they have been together for so long, they know that this is only the beginning. They look forward to starting this new chapter together, and celebrating it with their friends and family.

Sending Cassidy and Cody all the love in the world!!!!!
