Posted by: Cassie, the leader of SMARTY OC:

Just posted this on the SMARTY Resource Group!

After seeing my greasy face with glitter in just one too many photos, I decided it was time for a real make up lesson with a real make up artist. I had been salivating over Carina Lindgren's Flawless Faces work. She is an OC SMARTY and a sought after artist for weddings. She has pictures on her blog and in her studio that are so pretty and I wanted to learn how to get that look.
My two hour lesson at her cute studio started with me dumping EVERY product I own onto her table. We went through each one and she told me what would work and what wouldn't. Then, we went through a pretty daytime look using techniques I have never thought of and colors and textures that were so different.
IT WAS AWESOME! She followed up with an email that included a step by step "how to" and a shopping list to take with me to the store.
Oh the end...she takes pictures in different kinds of light and checks her work to make sure she has the colors right!!
So, yeah....I totally recommend Carina. It was worth it!

Loved Flawless Faces! Tiffany did my makeup and Kelly did my hair.. they were both amazing! I didn't want my make up too caked on that it barely looked like me and Tiffany was able to work her magic with make up that somehow was able to stay on all night (even after all the crying at the ceremony!). Kelly was so much fun. She's so cute and did a great job working with my clip-in hair extensions and gave me the Kim Kardashian look I was going for.

The Flawless Faces salon is so cute and girly too. I loved it and want to go back for a facial!

Special Photoshoot....

Carol Von Sprecken's photoshoot
Makeup: Carina

This was no ordinary photoshoot. I have to share, it's been One 1/2 years since this shoot, but it was such an amazing day to be part of. Carol was in her early 30's with a small son and was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was very gracious in letting me ask her a million questions about her cancer and how she found out, and how she has been dealing with it while I was doing her makeup. She let me know that she had a lump in her breast, and the dr's told her it was just a clogged milk duct because she had a newborn baby. It never went away, and when she finally had the dr.'s check it, it was full blown cancer. This shoot was to take pictures with her family and spend her last days at the beach and enjoy the most important things in life: friends & family. I cried the whole way home from Dana Point after doing this job knowing that I would never see her again, and how much she had touched me. I received an email 3 weeks later that she had passed. She looked so amazing in her pictures, I wanted to share:
