Halloween Makeup & Hair Pop-up Studio 2016

This post is long overdue, but we are so excited to share some images and looks that we created for our Halloween studio event inside of the famous Peaches Records on Magazine Street. We had SO much fun with our clients and guests and it was a year we'll never forget! New Orleans is the place to be for Halloween, and no costume or makeup look is too crazy! Our PreauxFace artists had such a blast and enjoyed the challenge of each and every makeup. As an artist, using your creativity and imagination is what drives us to do what we do and further refine our aesthetic talent. We pride ourselves on using the best long-wearing and vivid FX makeup, so we weren't surprised to have the same client on the second day with her face still perfectly intact!

Our weekend was full of such a diverse and unique group of individuals that LOVE makeup and Halloween just as much as us, and we hope to see them again this year in 2017! Don't forget to check out our Halloween page for more information on this years pop-up, and to sign up for updates and early pre-booking! Also, did we forget to mention that one of our pop-up studio client's went on to win not one, BUT TWO Halloween contests?! We promise not to make you share your winnings this year ;)

Best of Weddings 2017!

We are so thrilled to announce that PreauxFace has been awarded the Best of Weddings award for 2017! Only 2% of wedding professionals and vendors are awarded this title in the entire country. It has been a crazy year so far, not only in business but across the world. This was definitely a reminder to always look forward, work hard, and always be the best you can be - it will always pay off. And of course we could not have had such great success without our beautiful and amazing clients and brides! 2017 is shaping up to be the best year yet for PreauxFace and we can't wait to show you what's to come.

 

 

Welcome to our Blog!

Where I go when I need a sense of peace, City Park in New Orleans. 

Where I go when I need a sense of peace, City Park in New Orleans. 

Hello world! Welcome to the blog world of PreauxFace! We are an elite on-location makeup and hair team based in one of the greatest (I know, we're a bit biased) cities in America - New Orleans. 

I have contemplated and put a lot of thought into the subject of our first blog post, maybe talk more about PreauxFace? A little more about me? Nah. We're going to talk a little bit about what inspired the name "PreauxFace" and why what started everything in the first place - our love for New Orleans. 

I moved here in the Fall of 2014, desperately searching for a way to move south before we had to endure another -20º winter in Ohio. My partner has ties to New Orleans, and we had planned a trip here to escape for a while and visit some friends and family. We knew New Orleans was on the radar for a future city to settle in, but I wasn't totally sold on it just yet. I will be the first to admit, the only thing I knew about New Orleans before moving was Bourbon Street and Mardi Gras - I honestly didn't know much.

It is crazy to think about how much I have learned over the last couple of years about this city. From the ludicrous pronunciation of street names, the fact that a dance party or second line can spring up out of nowhere, to the history of the culture that truly makes New Orleans feel like the most unique city it America. I will be the first to admit that drinking in the streets and the culture around the "go-cup" persuaded me to pack my bags and call this place home. 

The history and architecture was the first piece of New Orleans that I had to digest. You can really lose yourself for hours walking around neighborhoods and really opening your eyes to soak in all of the beautiful houses and old decaying buildings. Even a walk through City Park really allows you to clear your mind and grasp how beautiful and picturesque New Orlean's is. 

 

New Orleans is hugely based around events - the more reasons to celebrate the better! As a makeup artist, it completely made sense to settle here and bring my talent with me. My team and I have had the chance to create beautiful and unique makeup year round. I'm sure it's cliche and many locals might not agree with me, but I love it here more and more with every Mardi Gras and Carnival season. The city is bustling and alive with prismatic energy - we are ready to celebrate, let loose, and have fun!
