What a Highly Skilled, Professional, Trustworthy Makeup Artist.Finn at Blush Away has a strong background/knowledge base of skincare.During my consultation a few months prior to the photoshoot she educated me on proper skincare, and it’s importance. This was a true value add. Finn has an impressive expertise of cosmetology with regard to makeup application techniques and tools as well as the latest industry trends. I definitely felt comfortable trusting her recommendations re: colors/styles. She did ask for me to share photos of styles I liked, but I didn’t.Her artistic vision is of great scope.she is an artist whose client examination goes beyond –what your eye color, shape, or skin tone is. I say her vision is ‘of great scope’ meaning, it is all-inclusive of your special day. She enquires about what you’re wardrobe, your scenery/background colors/location, as well as the time of day and lighting of your photo shoot. You can tell she has a tremendous amount of valuable experience working with photographers. Finn wanted more than successful makeup, she wanted the whole day and my photos to be successful. Her creative flare and dynamic background truly brought a uniqueness and value add to my Blush Away experience.Product Insight: Finn doesn’t promote any single line of makeup or skin care products, which I love. For someone like me who isn’t sold on any one product line and is weary of committing to a very expensive one, Finn will be very honest with the products she uses, her experiences/why she prefers them.Overall Customer Experience: A+.
I had asked if she could do my makeup roughly 1-2 weeks in advance, and she made sure to be home from a wedding she was doing before. The makeup was beautiful and I got many compliments on it. I will definitely be going back again for more events in the future.
