Meet the Hair and Makeup Artist: Monica | Charleston Boudoir Photography


Monica is an absolute master of her craft and a joy to work with! Professional hair styling and airbrush makeup application with false lashes is an invaluable tool to help you relax and feel ready for your boudoir shoot with me.  Plus, who doesn't love a makeover!? This amazing business woman has been key in my creation of gorgeous images of incredible ladies over the last few years, and I thought it was time to get to know her better! 



I met Monica early in 2015 when she came in to work with me on a marathon shoot day after coming highly recommended. Once I saw her work, I knew I wanted to continue to work with her. A few months later she became the only hair and makeup artist that I work with! 

Here's a little bit about the Monica, in her own words:

Hi Dolls! I am the Owner/Operator of Mirror Mirror Hair & Makeup Artistry based in Charleston, SC and I am Marie's hair and makeup artist for all of her boudoir shoots! I specialize in airbrush makeup and individually craft colors to match each client's skin tone so that their skin looks flawless! 
I am a born and raised Texas girl from San Antonio! I love DIVERSITY, INDIVIDUALITY, and I love LOVE!
Aside from running my own business, I have three children (two girls, one boy!) and one fur-baby (a teacup Yorkie). We love to do anything that we can do as a family!  My husband, Juan, is a Vintage car enthusiast so we spend our free time together going to car shows and showing off our work - we've even been the occasional trophy winner! The kids love it and think we are pretty cool - so, I'll take it!
I've been interested in hair and makeup since I was little...  I was professionally trained at Charleston Cosmetology Institute. After that, I've spent countless hours growing in my trade through study and lots and lots of practice.  I've been in the in the industry for 8 years and branched out to start my own business in 2015. Starting Mirror Mirror Hair and Makeup Artistry is what I would consider that my greatest business achievement so far! Well, that, and having my work published in Southern Bride Magazine!! 

I love Boudoir! I love working with Marie and watching the transformation - getting to see the reaction of my clients when they see their "after" is the best!  I love to bring out the sexy alter ego in my clients and remind them that they still have "it"!  

We tend to forget about ourselves as we grow older and I would love to help boost your confidence & remind you that you are SEXY & BEAUTIFUL at every stage of your life. Embrace your individuality and your feminine fierceness and book a boudoir shoot with Marie and I!

I love making new friends! To book a shoot, or just say "hi", contact Marie here
