Makeup by Vega

Makeup Artist in Hampton Roads. Available for Bo***ir, Weddings, Fashion Photography, Family Portraits, Senior Portraits ... and much more. Available for: Weddings (bride and bridal party), models (outdoor, indoor, fashion, glam and studio), graduation portraits, family portraits, prom, Holiday Events ... and much more.

I'm just a funny gal ... with a knack for enhancing your NATURAL beauty! My desire for enhancing natural beauty came when I started to work at The Body Shop in Norfolk, VA. I learned about natural beauty thru Anita Roddick and her vision. I started off doing make up for the Fairy Godmother program in Hampton Roads. It was amazing to transform young girls who don't have much in this world ... and make them into a princess for one night. Some have cried and some have begged for me to show them just a few tips. With the push from BC Photography in 2011, my passion for make up has been ignited again. I love make up and not for the glamor of it so much (believe me I do love the glam) but I love it for the brief moment in time that you can be transformed into anything or anyone you want. Beauty is within the eye of the beholder ... but with my help you can share that beauty with all eyes to see.

It isn't often that I get a photo o f me behind the scenes ... I always feel like I look weird, or I am mean mugging (it's my serious face).
Either way, I get the job done, mean face and all!

I will always love this image from Devon Shanor Photography

I am so guilty of code switching... I used to be ashamed of it because someone tried to convince me (and for a while succeeded) that it was a character flaw that I was choosing to embrace.

Jokes on them ... I'm great at code switching.

Whether you're a pregnant mama to be ... or a bride ... or a high school senior ... or a client ready for her first time doing a boudoir ... I'll do my best to relate and relax you!

Makeup Artist Branding Session | Makeup by Vega - JudithsFreshLook.com

Did you catch Makeup By Vega on the Fresh Look Photography blog?

Annabelle and I were very excited to be a part of the group of people who can say ... I've had headshots done by Fresh Look Photography!

So, can I tell you, I was nervous about this session. Like a little nausea showed up. But, with Judith, she literally made all the butterflies rest easy.

She held our hands and gave us such good direction, we felt right at home. This was exciting and fun. I recommend you do one too! Tell Fresh Look that I sent you!

judithsfreshlook.com This makeup artist branding session we captured in Town Center Virginia Beach was the perfect way for Makeup by Vega to show off their work!

@milkmakeup has the Kush Lip Glaze which has become my life saver here on vacation in The Poconos while on holiday. The climate change (I’m a beach girl) has wrecked havoc

HIT UP THE HIGH SHINE.
HYDRATES
Conditioning, plant-derived helps hydrate for smoother lips.

SOFTENS + SMOOTHS
Shea, cocoa, and mango butters soften lips and improve texture. Jojoba and olive oils help provide antioxidant benefits.

SHINES
Liquid formula locks in hydration. Sage extract and peppermint oil combine for a subtle, natural flavor.

Recommend 10/10 for this winter holiday!

played in drag .... and then I got the tiktok! 😂😂

Do you know what an ‘allergy shiner’ is?
I didn’t until my mom told me it looked like I had a black eye. 😂 relax. It’s only ‘sinusy’ stuff. Darn Winter!
I got this product in my @boxycharm a while back and it sat in my stash for a minute. Well, today I tried it out and I love it! WHY didn’t I try it sooner!?!?
@jeccablac Liquid Corrector 2.0 is just right for something like this. If you have the darker pigmentation, dark circles, or like in my case, an allergy shiner, this is your product!

It’s light weight and not ‘cakey’ like some other correctors, and it gives you just enough coverage so that it blends in flawlessly with your makeup. Believe me, a little goes a long way!
Today I paired it with @lancomeofficial Skin Feels Good (02C Blonde) and it’s just enough coverage!
This brand is vegan and in full support of LGBTQ community! 🙌🏼

10/10 recommend!

Stephanie is a repeat client!
FACE atelier is my go to when it comes to helping with redness without that Camry feeling of layers upon layers of makeup.

Eyes - We added Viseartofficialparis 14 Neutral Mattes: Milieu SlimPro to her eye to help bring out these baby blues!

Lashes - Of course you know we go hard with Ardell Beauty Demi Whisps!

Lips - Anastasia Beverly Hills lip palette is what’s helped me to create literally any color I want!

Brows - I’m a Benefit Cosmetics girl, we used the brow gel and then #3 Precisley my brow and finished it off with the Morphe brow powder.

Blush / Highlight - Natasha Denona Beauty Tan Palette - Bronze & Glow Palette.

Contour - so can we bow down to Scott Barnes ~ Celebrity Makeup Artist contour palette!!!! Ugh! Al the contour one would need in one palette!

We are officially done booking for the rest of 2020!
I’m booking up my 2021!
Make sure you get your dates in now!
