Local make-up artist Renee Hendershot brings some big-time credentials to her specialty of bridal makeup. She was trained by Emmy Award-winning makeup artist Kevin James Bennett and celebrity makeup artist Priscilla Ono.

“I absolutely love doing bridal make-up. It’s truly an honor to be a part of such an exciting time, from designing the perfect look with the bride to the day of application. I love helping the bride feel like the most beautiful version of herself on her big day,” she said.

Hendershot can apply the bride’s make-up at her studio in Buellton or travel to the bride to help prepare on the big day.

“It’s just incredible to be able to make the bride’s day even better and be surrounded by so much love, hope and excitement. Being able to do bridal make-up is such a rewarding experience, and I feel so lucky to be able to do what I love,” she said.

Hendershot continues to take master classes yearly to stay on top of trends and to stay informed on the newest makeup technology.

She offers a wide variety of services such as airbrush make-up, custom false lashes, contour and natural make-up, tattoo coverage, custom facials, chemical peels (done four to five weeks before the wedding day), full body waxing, men’s grooming and more.
