Valerie Vonprisk Makeup Artista | A Natural Beauty at The Marine Room

By, April 25, 2013

Julia and David held an intimate beachside wedding at The Marine Room in La Jolla. It was my pleasure to do makeup for Julia and her beautiful mother on Julia’s wedding day.


Julia is naturally gorgeous, and she has a positive light that shines from within. I wanted to keep her looking like herself, and to bring out her glow!


I made sure Julia’s brows looked symmetrical, and evened out her skin tone while keeping the eyeshadow soft and neutral.


I lined Julia’s lips with a nude lip pencil, and filled in the lip with a rose colored lipstick and gloss.


I also highlighted the high planes of her face with some of my favorite products, and brought some lotion to accentuate her athletic arms.


I brought the sexy factor up with a clean (waterproof) black line on Julia’s upper lash line. Natural false lashes made sure David would be swept away by Julia’s gaze all night.


Along with their guests, Julia and David enjoyed a gorgeous evening, which included incredible cuisine and genuine love.

Rancho Bernardo Inn Wedding with Valerie Vonprisk Makeup Artista

By, January 07, 2013

I love making my brides look like they stepped off the page of a fashion magazine. With a background in editorial and fashion makeup artistry, I use careful makeup applications on my brides to give them ultimate confidence and style on the wedding day.

My gorgeous bride, Erin, married her husband Jason at the beautiful Rancho Bernardo Inn. For Erin’s makeup, she wanted a flawless but natural look on her big day.

To complement the elegantly detailed bodice of Erin’s, dress and the pristine feel of the Rancho Bernardo Inn, we wanted her skin to stand out and glow.  We went for a smooth rosy cheek, and let her gorgeous brown eyes pop with a shimmery brown and cream lid. To complete her look, we accentuated her lips with a natural pink and a little gloss.

Erin and Jason saw each other before the ceremony during a “first look” shoot. Jason was excited and stunned when he saw his beautiful bride to be.

Erin’s classic updo and clean makeup balanced perfectly with her eclectic bouquet, modern satin belt, and couture dress.

In addition to Erin’s makeup, I did the makeup for the seven girls in her bridal party. What a gorgeous group of brunettes!

I love this shot of Erin serving us a modern “Marilyn Monroe.”

Even towards the end of the night, Erin’s makeup held up perfectly, and she looked as beautiful as ever!
