Lucky, loved and blessed!! Married to my soulmate and have two beautiful boys who I spend all my days with when I am not working. I am fortunate to be in a career that I am not only passionate about, but that I absolutely love!! Spending time with my clients, learning their wants and needs, and being apart of a special day is so much fun! I like to think of myself as an accomplished and creative makeup artist. I strive to bring out the natural beauty of my client.
For the last ten years I have specialized in bridal and event makeup. Over four years ago, I was at a point in my career where I was able to step out of my retail comfort zone and become my own boss! I haven't looked back since. I continue to challenge myself every day in hopes of sharing my vision of modern beauty with women everywhere. Whether it be for a makeup lesson, wedding, boudoir, maternity/ family shoot, senior portraits, anniversary, prom, first date or even a night out with the girls, I look forward to being a part of your special day!
I have recently started my own blog!! I touch base on all things beauty, style, and home. Please come check out Life's Beauty Mark. If you ever have a question concerning makeup, feel free to message me.
"As soon as I met with Taryn for the first time, I knew she was who I wanted to do my makeup on my wedding day. Not only is she an incredible talent, she is also one of the sweetest and most genuine people I have ever met. She is so easy to talk to and really took the time to get to know me and my personal style. She understood that as someone who doesn’t wear much makeup, I didn’t want to look like I was wearing a lot of makeup. During my trial run, she made me feel extremely comfortable and made sure that I looked like me. Nothing looked overdone or caked on, but instead looked natural and timeless. She took notes on everything she used so that we could mirror the same look on the big day.
On my wedding day, she arrived at the hotel early and set up all her makeup. She was so fun and easy to talk to and made me feel at ease as she did my makeup. She continuously checked in with me to make sure I was happy. She did my makeup, along with my three bridesmaids, mom and mother-in-law. We all looked fresh and felt beautiful. I cannot say enough good things about Taryn. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is looking to get their makeup done." - Lauren Schardin

"Taryn did all the makeup for my bridesmaids as well as myself for my October 19 wedding. She did such an amazing job, I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist to make us all feel like "princesses" on my special day. After the wedding, I actually had compliments on my makeup and my photographers AND hairdresser even asked for her info so they had it to refer her to future brides. Love Taryn and would recommend her services to everyone!!" -Shannon Mullin
