Happy Monday Everybody! This week we are featuring Eva Terez Beauty. She is a make-up artist/hair stylist company who strives to make bride's feel relaxed, calm and beautiful on their special day!
We have both known Brianne (founder and owner) for many years and she actually did both mine and Joryli's make-up on our weddings day! We can personally say that she is one of the most calm, fun and talented ladies we know! We can't say enough great things about her.
Tell us a bit about yourself!
I am married with one child.. and by child I mean my little puppy named Kola. I admit we are major pet parents and she is completely spoiled. I feel very blessed in my life to have such an amazing husband and a wonderful career that is successful. I have been doing makeup for 7 years and last April I decided to make the big decision to go on my own as a freelance artist. It was an extremely hard decision but one of the best ones I have ever made. I look forward to what the future has in store for my company!
Where did you go to school?
I went to Westmore Academy of Cosmetic Arts which is located in the Burbank area of California. I wanted to learn from the best in the industry.
How did Eva Terez Beauty come to be?
I have always wanted to work in the beauty industry. At my kindergarten career day I dressed up as a hair dresser/makeup artist! Everyone else was in doctor, fire fighter or police costumes and I stood there with a little comb in my pocket saying " I'm a hair dresser and makeup artist ". The name "Eva Terez" is actually my middle name. I was named after many amazing woman in my family and so I feel honoured to have a company under the same name. For all you brides who call me "Eva" I don't mind at all!
Why do you love what you do?
I honestly think I have the best job in the world! I get to hang out with fun girls on the happiest day of there life and make them feel beautiful! I love to enhance ones natural beauty and showcase confidence from the inside out!
What is a bride's number one question for you?
I usually get asked about Airbrush foundation. Airbrush is a silicone based foundation that lasts all day long and looks flawless. Its great for all skin types especially oily and feels super lightweight.
What advice do you have for brides looking for a MUA?
My advice would be to make sure you love their style of makeup as well as find an artist who has a calm nature. The last thing you need on your wedding day is someone who is stressing you out!
Do you have a studio or are you mobile?
Trials are most often held at my location but on the day of the event I travel to where ever the bridal party is getting ready.
Are consultations included in the cost for your hair/make-up packages? When do you advice getting the consultation done?
My package rates include a trial session. It is completely up to the bride but I do suggest getting a trial done. You can choose to book your trial whenever you would like. Some ladies prefer to have a trial before they book the wedding day but because dates book up really fast I would recommend doing it right away. Other brides book the date and want to save the trial for closer to the wedding. I always suggest doing it on a day when you are doing something special like engagement photos, bridal showers , stagette etc.
How do you stay on top of the wedding trends?
I am always looking at images of makeup and hair, watching tutorials and just playing around with different looks to make sure I keep up to all trends and styles.
What is your favourite hair style/make-up look to do?
That is way to hard too pick! I think different styles compliment different people so I can't decide. I think it would be easier to pick looks I don't like. ;)
Do you have any tips for the brides/bridesmaids as they prepare to get their make-up done?
Moisturize regularly coming up to the date and exfoliate the night before. Always come with a fresh clean face and nothing on it (you can put your own moisturizer on in the morning if you like). Hair is usually best when washed the day before, however, if your hair gets greasy quite quickly then you may want to have it freshly washed.
We highly recommend Brianne for you upcoming event. If you have a wedding, bridal shower, engagement, or just want to get dolled up, she's your gal to call!
