It is with a heavy heart that I post this update.💔

The state of Colorado has issued a mandatory closure of "nonessential personal services.” I will be offering virtual makeup lessons, one on one or group lessons (wanna zoom with your besties and me?!). I also plan to make some fun Instagram videos and tutorials, which is a whole new world for me! Please comment below if there's anything you'd like to see!

Thank you all for your love and support, it means the world to me! 💗

Hello beautiful people!

In the interest of keeping everyone safe and healthy, I have decided to temporarily close my books for in-person makeup and skin care services. While I pride myself in always upholding strict cleanliness and sanitation practices, it is impossible to continue work without risk due the the nature of COVID-19 and the close proximity at which I work with every client. Being self-employed and having the ability to make connections with so many people on a daily basis is truly a gift. Thank you all for supporting me as a person and a business. To my clients and brides, I know I will be seeing you soon, and I appreciate your patience and understanding. You will be the first to know when I am back in action ready to glam you up, wax you down, exfoliate your skin, and hydrate your face! If in the meantime you would like a virtual makeup lesson 💁🏼‍♀️(or dance lesson, I teach those too 💃🏼), my books are wide open! I am also offering the option of gift cards if you'd like to purchase a makeup or skin care service for yourself or a loved one in the future! Please slide into my DMs or send me an email, even if you just want to say hi and chat! I'm sending you all love and positive energy! Let's stay happy and healthy! 💗

Love,
Lark (and Penny)

Hello friends!!

I wanted to let you know that health and safety are my top priority! Due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, I will not be providing makeup or skin care services on anyone that is exhibiting any signs of illness (even if you think it's just allergies). If you need to cancel a service, please let me know! I will be waiving my regular cancellation policy for the time being.

To quote Rachel Brosnahan,

"Sending love to anyone feeling anxious or uncertain right now. Extra love to those suddenly out of work or out of school or caring for a sick loved one. Be kind to yourselves. Be kind to each other. (And wash those hands, friends!)"

Let's stay happy and healthy! ♡

I got to do makeup on my gorgeous friend Skye Festog for some new headshots! Her “smize” is perfection! 😍

We opted for a soft warm tone look at first and then added a bit more dimension to create a soft smokey eye.

She's slaying that Jessica Rabbit vibe! ♥️

Throwback Thursday!

I loved getting to do this soft vintage look with a bold red lip for Swingbird Fashions! I am so blown away by the talent Leea Kuronen (owner of Swingbird Fashions) has! She is so creative, artistic, and has such an attention to detail! I was honored to work with her again for this photoshoot of her latest designs!

Gennavieve and Cameron were such a joy to work with!

I don't always get to meet the groom before the big day, but I was lucky enough to meet Cameron when the two opted for a dance lesson with me!

I feel so fortunate to be able to share my passions of makeup and dance with my clients.

Cheers to makeup that lasts through all the dancing and love that lasts through the all years! 🥰

I created this makeup look to represent bold and strong feminine power. On their own, each woman has a fierce look, showcasing their natural beauty with bold color and strong lines. Together, the eyes align to create a statement that together we are stronger, bolder, and brighter.

This past weekend I got to do makeup for a gorgeous wedding at the YMCA of the Rockies.

Check out these sneak peeks from Sarah Goff Photography!

With storms all around us, yesterday was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster, but in the end Gabrielle and Colton's wedding at the YMCA of The Rockies - Estes Park Center was stunning in so many ways. These two are gracious, joyous, and just plain fun to be around.

Their ceremony overlooked one of Colorado's iconic 14ers along with several 13er peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park. As we headed up the mountain, lightning was cracking around us but the storms moved and left us with just a few rain sprinkles.

After their ceremony, the sun came out full force and we explored around the mountainside for photos. Oh and their group may or may not have shook the floor with an epic dance party all night!

Gabrielle and Colton, you two deserve the world! Enjoy Aruba! #callmeconnolly #abearyconnollywedding

Perspective & Advice for Those Facing Insurmountable Odds - VoyageDenver - Denver

I recently had the honor of participating in Voyage Denver's question of the month:

What is the best advice you have for someone who feels like they are facing insurmountable odds?

Here's my response:
"When I’m faced by a challenge that feels insurmountable, I try to focus on taking it one step at a time. You don’t climb a mountain by reaching straight for the top. I also feel it’s important to remind myself that it’s ok to ask for help."

Mountain weddings are so beautiful year round! The changing leaves in autumn, the shimmering snow in winter, the flowers blossoming in spring, and of course the green leaves and bright sunshine in summer. What an incredible state we live in!

Stunning sneak peek photos from a wedding in Keystone, Colorado this past weekend by Kristopher Lindsay Photography!

Congratulations Lauren and Alex! Your wedding was straight out of a fairy tale and I am so honored to have been a part of it!

Remember that cute couple "fly fishing" in Rocky Mountain National Park? Well, they're MARRIED!

I love seeing high school sweethearts tie the knot! The families are already so connected and what we loved about this particular wedding, everyone who was in the wedding party that were friends, married THEIR high school sweetheart.

How AWESOME is that!!! Lauren & Alex, we hope you enjoy a little sneak peek!!!
