• 33rd Annual Bridal Spectacular Bridal and Fashion Show

    10 Jan 2018

  • This past weekend I was able to have the opportunity to not only attend the 33rd Annual Bridal Spectacular Bridal Show as a vendor but was able to provide makeup for Act II Model & Talent Managment’s runway models. The models wore dresses supplied by Greta’s Bridal and Formalwear, Simply Yours, and David’s Bridal. Hair was provided by Kerri Trapp of MAK Salon and Spa. For this show, I researched up and coming makeup trends for 2018 and applied a few of those trends to the models while keeping the other models more natural.

    For my first model, I created a look using Stila’s Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Diamond Dust while keeping the rest of the look soft. My second model, I created a look using natural toned shadows with a pop of grey. One of the upcoming trends of 2018 is grey eyeshadow on your wedding day. For my third model, I created a soft eye look with natural shadows but used a glitter eyeliner to line the outer part of her eyes. Glitter eyeshadow is another up and coming trend for 2018.

    My next models, I kept with the more traditional natural eye looks.


    Westley Leon Studios was kind enough to get a few photos of me in my booth at this event! I was excited about this show because I made adjustments to my show booth including my new show banner! I had a blast meeting some of my current brides that I have not yet had a chance to meet and new brides to be. At one point my booth got overfilled with brides after the first fashion show as brides seeking makeup services visited.


    There were two fashion shows during this bridal event, and I can say that they were not ones you wanted to miss. The models from Act II Model & Talent Managment did a fantastic job at modeling each vendor’s dresses. As always I had a blast meeting everyone at the show and I cannot wait to be part of your wedding day!

  • About the Artist

    I'm the makeup artist and owner of Makeup by Keria.
    I started doing makeup in 2010 in fashion and modeling. I moved into the wedding makeup in 2013 and fell in love. I'm a sucker for wedding days and all the emotional moments around it. I love helping the bride fulfill her dream wedding and making her look flawless for her big day! I've been married to my husband Westley for over 10 years and he happens to be a wedding photographer. We enjoy working with one another but when we have separate weddings we also enjoy telling the bride's big day over dinner.


    I'm great under the pressures of the big day's timeline and make the bride my focus. I have a degree in social work that I have used to help some brides ease their anxieties while also relaxing them while they are in my chair getting their makeup completed.
    I'm an easy going person and put others forward and I can't wait to talk to you about your big day! <3
