Today we’re going to debunk a few myths about professional makeup and take you step-by-step through a makeup trial experience.

I often hear that professional makeup is an unnecessary expense. I encourage potential clients to consider the fact that your wedding day is all about YOU. I would bet that you will photographed more on your wedding day than on any other day of your life, and these will be images you’ll be cherish forever. Professional makeup will ensure you look your best!

Many women feel nervous about allowing someone else to do their makeup. As a makeup artist, I am experienced in creating looks for women with faces of all shapes and colors. And your input matters! We can build a look based on your ideas or if you’re not sure what direction you want to go, I can make suggestions. Wedding day makeup is not about making you look like someone else, it’s about making you look like the best possible version of yourself.

Some may try to argue that a makeup trial is a waste of time and money; I disagree! A trial is the perfect time for us to talk through what you envision for your wedding day makeup without the pressure of the wedding day timeline looming over us. We can try a few looks to select one that works best for you. Many of my brides get a little more bang for their buck by scheduling the makeup trial before their engagement or bridal photoshoot. The makeup trial also allows you to see how the product feels on your skin and to determine any allergic reactions before the big day!

What I can guarantee about the Ashlee Bivins Makeup Experience:
I use only the highest quality makeup products, including airbrush makeup which photographs beautifully and stays put all day.
I will listen to what you want. We can collaborate to come up with a look that enhances your unique features.
I will be there on your wedding day to ensure you look like the best possible version of yourself- your makeup will be one less thing you have to worry about.

I have helped hundreds of brides put their best face forward as they walk down the aisle. Allow me to do the same for you! If you are interested in booking me for your wedding day or scheduling a wedding makeup trial, feel free to contact me at 918-619-2384 or by email at



Today I’m back on the blog to share the story of soon-to-be bride Shannon and her fiancé, Dylan. The two attended school together since middle school, but officially met through a friend sophomore year of high school, and Shannon says they “have been inseparable ever since!”

Dylan surprised Shannon by proposing on Thanksgiving Day. She was busy checking their lottery tickets on the computer- when she announced they had not won, Dylan asked if she still loved him and of course, she said yes. When she spun around in the chair she realized he was down on one knee, surrounded by his family. When he asked if she would marry him, Shannon asked if she was getting punked! The family assured her this was the real deal and the rest is history! Shannon and Dylan are set to tie the knot on September 5, 2013.

On selecting me as her makeup artist, Shannon says she was drawn to me because I use MAC products. She saw my work with other brides based on the photos on my website and was confident in my skills. We did a trial run for her wedding look before her engagement photo session with Artworks Tulsa Photography and Shannon was thrilled with the makeup. She says, “It looked natural but showed up well in the pictures.” I can’t wait to make Shannon look gorgeous on her wedding day!

A makeup trial is a great way to not only try out a look before the wedding, but we can schedule the trial before engagement or bridal portraits so you can look your best with professional makeup for your photos!

On August 24th I’m launching an awesome new referral program. All of my makeup clients will now receive referral cards to share with friends. Once you have a friend redeem a card, you and that friend receive $30 off your next makeup application (originally $75). The discount can be redeemed for any event other than a wedding or a wedding makeup trial (as trials are already discounted to $55). Think about taking your look to the next level for a night out or before your next photo session!

Although the cards will not discount my services related to weddings, brides and bridal parties who book my professional makeup services can enjoy the perk of sharing these referral cards with their friends and apply the discount to future services. Pay it forward by sharing my name with your girlfriends and reap the benefits of spreading beauty!

Feel free to contact me at if you have any questions! I hope to see you and your friends in my chair soon!
