Certified Makeup Artist



Meet Emily

Hey there!

I am a freelance Certified Makeup Artist based in San Diego, with direct experience providing high quality makeup artistry for weddings as well as maternity, engagement and lifestyle photography shoots, tailored to a variety of styles and ages. Trained by celebrity artist and founder of Makeup City, Loli Romo, I am passionate about highlighting each client's unique qualities and personality to achieve a natural finish. I offer on-location services, using only professional grade products and offer competitive rates.

As a newlywed myself, I understand the crucial role that a makeup artist plays in achieving a fun, relaxing, and flawless bridal experience. My work leaves each bride feeling like herself on her wedding day, while glowing with confidence and elegance. True beauty first comes from within and it’s my job, as a makeup artist, to accentuate each client's beauty from the inside out, while working to tailor each look according to their vision. I am passionate about helping my clients realize their own true beauty by highlighting their naturally beautiful features and individual style.

It would be an honor to be apart of your special day or occasion. Please click below to contact me using the form provided, phone, or e-mail. I’d love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have!


Emily was fantastic to work with, from our trial run to the wedding day of! Before working with Emily, I never had a great experience of people doing my hair and makeup for big events so I was a little uneasy going in. Working with her, she quickly put all my worries to rest with her amazing product! My makeup and hair was better than I could have imagined, and day of wedding everything stayed in place all day and night long. I 100% recommend her to anyone looking to have great hair and makeup done by a relaxed, easy going gal. Thank you so much, Emily!!!!

Emily and her team did such a great job doing the hair and makeup for my bridesmaids and I! Every single one of my bridesmaids were very happy with how their hair and makeup turned out and they told me several times how great Emily and her team were! My hair and makeup lasted the whole night and looks great in pictures!

When my wedding planner changed the timeline which would make us have to be ready earlier, Emily quickly found another girl to help out. Emily is so sweet and a great person to work with. I would definitely recommend her!

Emily did an absolutely stunning job on my makeup on my special day!! Not only did she do my makeup for my wedding day, but she did my makeup for my bridal shower and also a boudoir photo shoot a few years ago. She is super personable and makes the day a lot of fun. She is a complete natural when when it comes to makeup artistry and always brings out the best in people. Emily makes me feel so beautiful. I am so incredibly grateful I chose HER for my wedding day!

Emily is awesome! Her work is amazing and she is so easy to work with. I got married in September and she did airbrush on myself, 3 bridesmaids, mother of the bride and groom, our officiant, and some light makeup on the flower girl. The makeup lasted all night and we were all dancing the night away. I got so many compliments in person and from pictures!

Emily was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G on my big day! I was stressing out trying to figure out last minute details when I got to my parents house. She was already there, set up and ready to go! Not only did her calm attitude help calm my nerves, but she was fun and took charge of the schedule! She did a wonderful job with my hair and my makeup stayed flawless through my outdoor ceremony! I would recommend her to any bride and bridal party.

Emily is awesome! She gave me a makeup lesson earlier this week at her Parlor. We went step-by-step through an everyday look and then jazzed it up for a night out look. She had me bring all of my makeup and skin care products and she gave me some great ideas about how to use the products I already have in new and creative ways. She demonstrated each step on herself and then it was my turn to try and replicate what she did. She gave me some cheat sheets full of tips she wrote herself, along with visuals to really make it easy for when I do my makeup at home. I had so much fun and am excited to play around with makeup using Emily’s tips and tricks!

Emily did my makeup for my wedding in May 2017. She had recommended we do a trail before the wedding and I’m so glad we did it made the wedding day go super smooth. I don’t usually wear a lot of makeup but Emily put the perfect amount to enhance my features and our wedding pictures turned out perfect. She was very kind and easy to work with. Definitely recommend Emily for your wedding or event she is professional, timely and really great to talk to.

Emily did my hair and make up for my own wedding this month. My makeup stayed beautiful and fresh all day! She was able to make my thick hair stay put for the full day of activities. Emily also did my make up for a friends wedding and it was beautiful! She is so personable and such a joy to spend hours with while getting ready for the big day! I was truly blessed to have Emily do my make up and hair!
