My First Blog Post

Updated: Feb 1, 2020

Hi, I'm Caitlyn!

I'm a bridal hair & makeup artist and educator based in Baltimore, MD, I'm nearly 35 years old, and I'm starting a blog - not starting to blog, but starting this one. I've tried my hand at blogging in the past, and to be honest, I never really got the hang of it. I found it cathartic, but hard to keep up with. So, I'll set the expectation right now:

I can't promise I'll be here weekly, or even monthly, but I can promise to drop by on occasion to drop little nuggets of bridal beauty knowledge that I hope at least some will find helpful.

I love hair and makeup, but I'm not a beauty queen - not anymore. While my weekends typically look like the photo above, pampering brides and living out my life-size Barbie dreams, on a typical weekday, I can be found working from home on the couch, in yoga pants and a coffee stained white t-shirt, wearing little to no makeup, with at least one cat near or on me (my partner and I have three).

My Philosophy

My goal is to help my brides achieve a look for their wedding that makes them feel timelessly beautiful without sacrificing their authenticity. When they look back on their wedding day, I want them to see themselves on the happiest day of their lives, radiating the same confidence, joy, and celebration that they feel internally outwardly.

For me, the best experiences and results are built on trusting and honest relationships, and I strive to cultivate deep and meaningful connections with each of my brides, so our time together can be calm, stressless, and most importantly - fun.

Contrary to the old saying "beauty is pain", I don't believe beauty should be painful for anyone. All beauty should be cruelty-free, and I only support brands that don’t test on animals, and are preferably vegan.

“As both an artist and a woman, community is incredibly important to me.”

I'm a total girls girl, and, as both an artist and a woman, community is incredibly important to me. It's important to recognize that there's enough work to go around for everyone, and shutting yourself off from your community is only doing yourself a great injustice. In the 14 years I've been in the beauty industry, I’ve found that nothing builds confidence and provides the support and inspiration you need to build a thriving business like finding a peer group you can trust.

My goal as an educator is not only to share my knowledge and help you elevate your artistry, but also to cultivate community, and help you find your tribe.

And that's me in a nutshell!
