Mukha Makeup at Virtue Salon

Makeup is something that I am sad to say, just wasn't on my radar for most of my life. I just recently, since getting into wedding photography, have learned to love the beauty of well done makeup. Maybe I was just viewing makeup as something that would hide your natural beauty and add more time to the morning routine..But what I have learned is, makeup is truly there to do two things:  1. Bring out your natural beauty and enhance the features you already have, and 2. Allow you to express yourself. Now I am not going to lie, I love me some crazy colors and edgy makeup every once in a while, but on a wedding day, or for senior pictures (anything that is a milestone), makeup looks best when it is natural. The amazing team at Virtue Salon in Clintonville not only does hair, they also recently added makeup services! This place is a one stop beauty shop. The line they carry is called Mukha, an amazing 100% mineral based product line, free of oil, alcohol, and talc...and of course, vegan. I really wanted to share this information with my clients and blog followers because I truly believe in these services 100%. To demonstrate what to expect when getting a basic makeup application at the salon, I had my friend Alexa be a model and go through the experience herself. 

Sarah did her hair first, of course :)

When you buy the makeup from the salon, you get to pick and choose how to fill up these packs. The cool thing is, you only get what you want and nothing else!

And here is the lady with all the tricks, Sarah. Seriously, she is awesome, but all the girls in the salon are trained to do makeup application.
